III Congress: Is it worth it?
I believe men have failed to remain within the parameters of the Constitution and BoR, and that is the root of the evil.
Anti-Constitutionalists tend to believe it is the documents fault. I consider that line of reasoning to be a psychotic break with reality. No piece of paper can defend itself. That is self-evident for any rational Soul.
The other day I ran a post off the cuff as a result of several posts offered by TL calling for a national organization that helped connect the dots between disparate units. To this day he refuses to take point or set parameters for such an organization.
I shrugged, and said "why not." I posted that I had a minimum requirement for CA and TL to participate, and all members sign an oath to Restoration of the Constitution. Knowing some people want to secede, I mentioned that once Restoration had been achieved, they could carry on with their personal goals for secession, or catching the tail of a comet, whatever.
About 2 years ago, CA was one of several community writers who joined in a book project arguing for Restoration. I figured such an oath would be a no-brainer.
Here is my current thinking: The Liberty movement would benefit from a national presence. The Liberty Movement is diminished by anti-Constitutionalists, for we are working at crossed-purposes. The argument made by Anti-Constitutionalists that "...we are all on the same team..." just because we all want some nebulously defined version of "Liberty" is, in my world, a fallacy.
Anti-constitutionalists injure the cause of Liberty in today's America for many ideological reasons and realpolitik reasons
I have come to understand that the Liberty outlined by the DoI and implemented for the real world in the Constitution and BoR, is a specific recitation of Liberty, as close as one can come to Rightful Liberty unless stoned on acid and living in dream land.
I am prepared to go forward with a national organization for a III Congress as recently detailed without CA and any other Anti-Constitutionalist. It is nothing personl against CA - it is that I now consider anti-Constitutionalists counter-produtive to Liberty in America.
Is a III Congress worthwhile investment of our energy and resources?
If you say yes, I will be moving forward with no further use for anti-Constitutionalists regarding the III Congress. (The Citadel operates under a different paradigm, anti-constitutionalists allowed)
Answer now or forever hold your piece.
