The Constitutionalist Perspective
One reality that simply can't be escaped or ignored is that in all the "remedies" being floated for how to "fix" America, people are promoting a specific agenda.
A few of the primary agendas are the Constitionalist, the Secessionist, the Anarchist (often closely allied with the Secessionist) Not to mention the Communists.
Communists deserve one simple solution - one upon which most of us can agree, except a few secessionists. And face realities - the Communist/Constitutionalist struggle is the only one on the table that means anything right now. Anarchists and Secessionists are fleas in this fight, compared to the 2 800-pound giants. They only become relevant in the case of Balkanization, in which NEITHER secessionists nor Anarchists will win, but the Communists will own the planet.
The Anarchist, by definition, wants no government. Many are willing to work for a minimalist .gov that they can reach at any time with a pistol.
The Secessionist wants smaller geographical regions to become sovereign and independent.
The Constitutionalist, as relate to our blogs, want a return to a state in which politicians and populace abide by the words and intent of the DoI, USC and BoR.
Anarchists and Secessionists do not, and will not, get much popular traction in today's world. They need the world to change dramatically before they will find popular support. Indeed, every act that weakens the process of Restoration to the Constitution is a net gain for Anarchists and every act that brings Restoration a step closer to reality is seen as a defeat for the average Anarchist and Secessionist. Remember the Agenda.
I am a Constitutionalist. I contend that in an America that abides the words and intent of the Constitution we will be living in a world with sufficient Liberty that most Anarchists and Secessionists will drop their words and deeds to overthrow the legitimate Government of America.
Constitutionalists know there is a tremendous amount of work to do to wrestle DoI/USC/BoR back from the revolutionaries who hijacked the republic. The Communist fucks.
Where we will not go is to restore legitimate adherence to DoI/USC/BoR simply to give Secessionists and Anarchists free reign to tear it all down. If you want Anarchy or Secession -- go take part of Somalia and declare it yours. Americans will fight you harder than Somalis.
