"We the people are the rightful master of both congress and the courts - not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." - Abraham Lincoln
Someone commented on one of my articles that the only good thing that has come out of their involvement in this year’s election, and fighting for our Constitution so that the usurper president-elect never makes it to the white house, was to become more knowledgeable about their computer. Knowledge is power and being able to navigate around the internet is an excellent skill to hone. So, hey, that’s a good thing and that skill will continue to serve you.
Anyway, it got me thinking about how one of the good things that has resulted from my involvement in the election and, yes, keeping the usurper out of the white house, is my renewed interest in our Founding Fathers, the American Revolution, and our Constitution. I think I mentioned in an earlier blog that I am reading a book about Thomas Paine, who was the author of Common Sense and various other revolutionary pamphlets and books. The two Toms, Paine and Jefferson, were believers in We The People. John Adams, on the other hand, was more of an elitist, sort of like most of the people running our government today.
(On an aside, John’s wife Abigail was absolutely smitten with Tom Paine and Common Sense. In fact, Paine seemed to have turned her into a feminist. She wrote her husband, saying that when he wrote the new code of laws, to remember the ladies, and she even threatened insurrection, saying that the ladies were determined to foment a rebellion and would certainly not obey any laws in which they had no voice or representation. That shook John up a bit, but not enough to change his mind on Paine, whom he was quite jealous of.)
I, and no doubt countless Americans, always thought of our Founding Fathers as revolutionaries, which would seem quite normal especially since we all are taught at some point about the Revolutionary War, which led to the founding of this country. So, what a surprise to find out that FEMA, our infamous (your doing a good job, Brownie) Federal Emergency Management Agency, is actually labeling our Founding Fathers terrorists in their training classes. Actually, more than that, our Founding Fathers are labeled the First Terrorist Organization.
