The Principles of 22'
We must replant, grow, and tend to the sovereignty of State as if it were our own garden in time of harsh famine.
For some time now, we, the American people, have been blinded by the false promises of progressive ideology and the entrenched welfare-education establishment. We have forgotten what made our founders so wise, and what made our ancestors so strong. Further, we have shunned the values of all those who have come before us, tossed aside their ancient beliefs, spoken falsely of their names, failed to defend their honor and sacrifice, and even laughed at their love of liberty. We have forgotten what it means to be Free. With the loss of this foundational western value, we have seen in its place the establishment of poisonous vitriol, virtue signaling of the lowermost kind, and the spread of globalism and a coming serfdom. Filled with the deepest respect for what could be, American men and women from all walks of life must find a way to come together to stop the welfare-education establishment, the Davos & Beltway political elite, and the aristocrats who profit from selling such orthodoxy to the average citizen.
As has been the picture of America for decades, nasty political rhetoric and media propaganda spoken by aristocrats continues to cement disunity at the national, state, and local level. People who have never wronged each other see no common kinship or fraternity with each other due to a form of malignant brainwashing that has become the standard in media and politics. As our union collapses at home, so too does it abroad.
We see shortages and crisis that seem to come not in waves, but as an ever-present flood. The average citizen is weighted down by anxious concerns that vary from how one will feed their infant, to whether they can afford gas to get to work. Shelves are left empty in stores once full. Factories whose machines once ran through the night find labor to be in short supply. Bankers work to consolidate more wealth while the Federal Reserve refuses to stop printing now baseless fiat. Political leadership on both sides of the aisle is as worthless as the cash they spend so freely. The world shakes with change. The balance of power, or the world order as some call it, is seeing a shift that has not occurred since the post-WW2 era. Alliances are breaking, proxy wars are expanding, and the geopolitical groundwork - formed by greater men than those which lead us now - crumbles. The advantage is not ours.
It may now be said that we live in 2 separate realities: (1) the everyday in which common people struggle to make ends meet just to return home as poor as they were when they set out, and (2) the narrative reality pushed by both sides of the establishment in which things are and will be great so long as you cede them more power. Delusion has become a standard. The working-class American has seen wages stagnate since the 1970’s. Homes are becoming out of reach as the home-to-income ratio has hit a factor of 8, and globalists seek to turn every neighborhood possible into Single Family Rentals. A future of serfdom awaits us if we cannot alter course. Farmers have found planting seasons tougher, harvests are threatened, and global food supply is on the brink! We face a collapse of not just the Western world, but THE world. The inheritance of Western Civilization – 2000 years of exploration and progress - is on the chopping block in our generation because we have allowed a kakistocracy to develop and take root.
Across the world we see global communism seeking to entrench itself in a way that will allow it to come out the victor in a post-collapse world. They seek to hasten said crash so long as they can guide it on the way down. Davos. The WEF. The entrenched Beltway politicians. Atlantacists. Internationalists. And Globalists. All have uprooted the very system which gave them life and are seeing to its expedited destruction.
They call this progress. They say its Green. They tell us we will own nothing and be happy.
Serfdom is their aim. And they the Lords of the coming realm.
Those who wish to avoid such a disastrous fate must look to the past to secure the future. We must start with family. We must raise children to be smart, humble, and brave stewards of Western Civilization. They must be raised to honor the Constitution, find a loyal love of liberty, and avoid the destructive ideology of progressivism in all its forms, for those who wish our servitude will stop at nothing to have their aims met. We can see this in the current groomer climate that praises grown men dressed in female lingerie shaking their genitalia at children for dollar bills. We see this in the teachers who tell children, young impressionable kindergarteners, that they were born in the wrong body and that sex with adults can be consensual. This new age radicalism is coming from every angle and has filtered down to target the most vulnerable among us. It must be stopped! The richest land the world has ever known, the most powerful nation planted by the wisest men the West has ever made, is now a wasteland of debauchery and ruin. Elites live behind gated communities watched at all hours by armed guards while they pass laws to remove from you your very right to self-protection – this is an actual assault on bodily autonomy. And yet the misery we speak of now is nothing compared what may come.
In this, our hour of greatest concern, the very existence of western civilization stands in question waiting to be judged by our actions. Failure or inaction leads the greatest civilization in all of humanity to the gallows. With us it lives or dies.
And at such an hour, what is asked of us by our politicians? To pay more taxes so that the federal government may spend until the well is dry. To support foreign proxy wars which will cost tens or hundreds of billions of dollars. To give up our God given rights so that the very government that fails to protect our liberty from criminals (who will remain armed) may be the only legally armed force in this land. To open our borders so that tens of millions may cross into our nation without the slightest of vetting. To allow corporations to regulate our basic rights as they’ve paid off both sides of aisle. To cede any and all remaining power that the everyday man or woman may have, so that the ultimate decision-making power in all things is left to government. To deny truth, gender, our own history, and even God Almighty!
This is what is asked of us by our government.
By both sides of the aisle. Both Parties who dominate this welfare-education establishment have found a home in their ability to capitalize on one-half of national sentiment: one has a supposed monopoly on compassion, morality, and progress; the other patriotism, free enterprise, and security. Neither actually do. Both are the grossest of frauds. It is an appalling inheritance.
Yet, it is OUR inheritance as Western men and women living among the ruins today. And though it appears completely squandered, we must retain hope that the task before us, perhaps the most difficult in Western history, is one we can meet. To find a way to bridge the gap, to rebuild this nation based upon the values of freedom and liberty, to abide by the Constitution, to reset the values practiced and so cherished by Jefferson, Franklin, and Clay. We’ve no need to re-lay a new foundation. We must simply drain the swamp that has drowned the one we have.
This means that any running for office as candidates for America must hold first and foremost the Constitution in their hearts. It must be the guiding document, and the restoration of its principles their cardinal task. The basic tenets of a classical Christian morality must also be at the heart of this difficult restoration. While one does not have to believe or abide by Christian faith to act in such a way, it is the rejection of modern Progressive ideology which has reached dogmatic dispersion among so much of the population that must be rendered obsolete. Those seeking leadership roles that wish to drain the swamp must feel not just compelled but obliged to discard racial politics and the disunion that comes with race-baiting. They must also be the greatest advocates for classical education and instilling the greatest traditions of Western man into our youth. Those seeking office on this basis must not bow, bend, or assuage the globalist, woke mob, or progressive ideologue at any time, for any reason. There is no more room to give.
Western governments have shown themselves to be weak of mind and strong of arm when it comes to controlling the average citizen. They are ready and able, as they have already demonstrated, to arrest and arraign parents who speak up against woke education, protestors who are not progressive or left in the sentiment and to disarm the general law-abiding populace through unconstitutional red-flag laws. They have confiscated savings accounts for the act of protesting, thrown political prisoners in jail for merely being present at a protest, forced workers to be fired for refusing experiment medical treatment, and locked down millions in a largely illegal and unconstitutional manner.
It is all this, and more, that we must replace. While contrary to our instincts as conservatives, organizing must be our cause. We must put in place guardrails that will allow our movement to grow and our leaders to remain true.
National, State, and Local leaders that seek to restore American liberty must run on and implement the following policies and practices at every opportunity, and become a nuisance to any elected members who are in opposition:
1. Balance the Federal Budget, State Budget, and Local Budget on a yearly basis.
2. The national security state and its bureaucratic apparatus must be dismantled so that the persecution of the everyday citizen ceases. Agents of government who are guilty in these abuses must be held to legal account by the States.
3. Utilize Nullification and Interposition as common tools to preserve the liberty and freedom of the common citizen and strengthen the position of the State.
4. Refuse any further infringements upon the 2nd Amendment, Repeal the Gun Control Act of 1968, Repeal any and all Red Flag Laws, and Enact unrestricted permitless carry.
5. Return education to the States, ban Woke ideology within the classrooms, and fund students instead of systems. Fire educators who attempt to indoctrinate woke fundamentalism.
6. Refuse any future lockdowns, medical mandates, or Covid-like passports within any locality, at any time.
7. The Federal Reserve must be audited and held to firm legal account via popular mechanisms should Congress fail to act upon them.
8. Work to repeal unnecessary and burdensome laws, deconstruct the federal bureaucracy and reduce the scope of the federal government to only that which it is legally entitled under the strictest interpretation.
9. Slow considerably the payment of tax dollars to foreign nations and in many cases cease the action all together.
10. Encourage states to reform voting practices and avoid the usage of electronic systems that are easily manipulated by those who wish to conduct voting fraud.
11. Vote for term limits and a decrease in pay for public servants at the national, state, and local levels.
12. Oppose wars of foreign aggression, proxy wars, and those which benefit the military industrial complex while failing to benefit the average citizen.
Since the end of World War 2, both national parties have ruined the prospects of the average American. In the time that these 2 parties have had unchallenged power within the Beltway, our people have grown evermore divided and now reside in a state of disunion with one another while being forced to exist under the same general government.
Our concerns, as Americans, are basic. They are not revolutionary, but counter revolutionary. We view ourselves as responsible to those who came before us, just as we are responsible to the society in which we live today, and just as importantly, to those who will come after us. The best safeguard against any abuses by a centralized national government is a strong support for the power of the States. We must replant, grow, and tend to the sovereignty of State as if it were our own garden in time of harsh famine.
As general government relates to domestic issues, it is their highest priority that they preserve the liberty of the people and the rights of the people to exist within their own societies as they wish – so long as those societies do not abridge the natural rights of man. This means that general government must protect what the people within a state view as a valuable way of life. It is not within the general governments legal authority to alter a valuable way of life, be that the practices of a Virginian or those of a Californian. Both are equal and independent under the law and in regard to how the general government may try to affect them. This understanding goes back to Jefferson, the 10th Amendment, and the Principles of 98’. Here, Jefferson is quoted as having said that the role of general government as it pertains to domestic society is “The support of the State governments in all their rights, as the most competent administrations for our domestic concerns and the surest bulwarks against antirepublican tendencies.” The Principles of 98, as Jefferson said, are the foundation of the Constitution and the chains of the constitution which bind the federal government to its rightful and legal place, preventing illegal, expansionistic or centralizing federal action.
As general government relates to foreign policy, it is their greatest charge that they maintain the happy security of the people. It is the addition of the word ‘happy’, as used in this context just as Madison and Jefferson used it, to reference the will of the people. That the general government should violate this happiness in any way while seeking security, the offending action should cease immediately. No amount of security is reasonable if it offends the happy nature of the society which it seeks to protect. In that regard it becomes as offensive and dangerous as that which the action originally sought to protect the people from. Further, our position internationally must be one of peaceful power, regarding all as potential allies and none as a permanent ally. Relationships must be cultivated but not abused, obligations fulfilled on both ends and not fed by the American dollar in perpetuity. For too long, foreign nations have fed voraciously at the trough that is American foreign aid. We have refilled and refilled that trough often without question or obligation met. Those who ate did so without offering anything in return. This practice must stop as foreign alliances and supporting practices must be mutually beneficial. If the only hope we as Americans have is that every 5 years, we will send our youth off to die in a foreign land for a people who neither ask, want, nor require our intervention then it is safe to say this practice should cease immediately. Sacrificing our young men and women on the altar of the Military Industrial Complex is little more than ritualistic oblation to a god the beltway machine created - a modern Moloch.
As it pertains to the arming of federal police and investigative bodies, these must be restricted in the severest of terms. Our local and State police must be armed in such a way as to prevent federal agents from abusing the local populace should the need arise. That means maintaining at the State level what is already on hand and reducing federally the disposition of the federal agencies. They must be restricted in their armaments, capabilities, and funding. Many must shutter their doors completely. We do not require a Department of Homeland Security which is a modern concoction of the largely illegal Patriot Act, an FBI that acts as the strong arm of one Beltway Party, or a Central Intelligence Agency who operates domestically against its own people. These agencies, among others, have gone far beyond their legal charge and require dissolution for the happy security of the people.
We must find a way to amend the three branches of the general government back to their original state. The administrative state, and the perverse delegation of powers which we now see cannot continue. Congress, too often, delegates its own powers to the Executive. They then try to override or work around the Judiciary. The Executive creates mandates that should have gone through Congress, and tenders executive orders that defy Judicial rulings with which it disagrees. The Judiciary attempts to legislate from the bench and too often, among federal judges, are political activists who have created a puppet court for one of the two beltway parties. The freedom of the individual, individual societies within each state, and the general society under which we all exist at the national level are corrupted and abused by these actions leaving the people in a state of disheveled distress and threatened at every turn.
Here, in closing, we the American people must acknowledge that now is the time to act in a unified manner to protect liberty from abusive federal government, globalists, and those international communists who seek to demoralize and crush our Western Inheritance.
It is not insanity, anger, hate, or derision that guides us. It is a simple and basic love of liberty. A love for our own families, towns, values, and histories. It is a hope that our children will have the chance to express and experience their happiest moments in a land free from class and racial warfare, perverse progressive pedagogy, tyrannical central authority, and globalist oligarchs who seek a feudal future.
It is with this hope that we appeal to God, to our friends and families, to the founders of this great land, and to the American people that all may commit themselves to freedom and liberty once more. That we may once again become a people who are loyal and responsible to that which has been entrusted to us: the sacred blessings of Liberty. For if we fail in our preservation of this inheritance, the ruins in which our children and grandchildren will be forced to survive should not be anything like that which we have seen in our lifetime, or any American lifetime before us.
Let us begin our loyal work for Liberty. With the favor of God Almighty, let us once again go forth as the happy citizens of a responsible, peace-loving, and productive nation.
Be Kind To Your Neighbors,
