Time has come to Overthrow Government

Our safety and our liberty depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who would pervert the Constitution.” ~ President Abraham Lincoln
President Lincoln clearly understood the purpose and meaning of our Constitution. Our constitution is the very underpinnings of our culture, way of life and the embodiment of our unalienable rights to Life, liberty and the pursuit of Property and Happiness.
Lincoln, as did the Framers of the constitution, both foresaw and warned against the potential dangers and time, when people lost sight of their basic unalienable rights and the power they hold over government, when government could overreach and exceed its designed purpose and authority under the constitution. Not only did they predict this potential danger but provided a solution and steps, in which to follow, for reigning in the power of government; including the outright abolishment of government and/or the Constitution by the people by revolution. The latter, although an action of last resort, is self-evident in the Declaration Of Independence. After all, it is the Peoples country NOT governments.
It's absolutely astonishing as to the amount of wisdom and foresight our founders possessed and clearly laid out for us, all within fewer than thirty-two pages, a simple body of laws and individual rights called the Constitution of the United States of America. Abraham Lincoln, also recognized their greatness and fully understood the meaning of revolt or revolution within the confines of the Constitution. He made this abundantly clear when he stated in his above quote. "The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who would pervert the Constitution.” We challenge you to name just one modern day president since Lincoln who so eloquently reinforced and defended the basic meaning and rights of the people under our constitution.
Over the past seventy years, from Franklin D Roosevelt to Jimmy Carter and now Obama, our presidents, elected officials and courts have continually distorted and eroded the basic freedoms and unalienable rights of the people by completely ignoring the Constitution, in furthering their personal political agendas. Interestingly enough, everyone of the democratic presidents had a personal agenda to pass some sort of Heath care reform or entitlement program for furthering socialist / Fascist principles which eroded our liberties, violated the Constitution and granted government greater control and power over the people.
This is most evident and glaringly obvious in the most recent ramrod-ding through Congress of a Constitutionally illegal Health Care reform bill over a majority objection of the people. It didn't matter to the lawmakers what was in the bill didn't meet or satisfy the wishes and concerns of their constituents, or that it may bankrupt the country and, in doing so, jeopardize our safety and national security nor did they bother to check the objections being raised as to the bills constitutionality. Instead our leaders of the House, Senate and our President, conspired behind closed doors, to bribe fellow lawmakers in order to garner necessary votes as they manoeuvred to find a method on which to pass a bill, Americans did NOT want, on less than a 2/3 majority. All that mattered was passing a bill that would give the President and fellow party member a victory and chance of re-election. Now that's blatant abuse and perversion of our Constitution and RIGHTS!
Yes, it was primarily the Democrats who perverted the Constitution but this practice is not exclusive to Democrats. Republicans are equally responsible either bills of their own or those of Democrats which they supported. Socialist Entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare subsidies and other similar handout programs are nothing more the Ponzi schemes run buy the government and which are illegal.
Time has come to put an end to this form of irresponsible government we created. Time to return to basic fundamental principles. Time to stop the corruption. Time to reform the political and legislative process. Time to impose Term Limits. Time to enforce Balanced Budgets and spending on government. Time to abolish the IRS tax code for a single Flat or Fair Tax putting more money back in the hands of Families & business. Time has come to "Overthrow all the men we elected who would and have perverted the Constitution". THE TIME IS NOW! Our and that of our Children's freedoms and future are at stake.
