Dear Congress: Because of You America is No Longer a Republic!



This message for all Americans is also an open letter to all 535 Members of the Congress of the United States.  Tonight is the eve of the date marking four months since the midterm elections of November 4, 2014, at which time Republicans captured solid majorities in both houses of Congress.   Voters let it be known loud and clear, across the land, in elections for Governorships, and other statewide and local elections, that we were totally exasperated by the evil and lawless agenda and actions of the socialist Obama administration.   We all heard truckloads of tough talk from Conservatives and Republicans regarding what their plans were come January of 2015, to use whatever means necessary to reverse course and return America to ” We, the People “.

Two full months have passed since the new Congress convened, our duly elected Members of the House and Senate, despite all the tough rhetoric and promises, even in spite of holding solid Republican Majorities in both houses, have accomplished absolutely nothing.   Congress has not shown any indication whatsoever, of willingness to act to stop, nor begin to reverse, the destruction our nation has suffered during the past six years under Obama and the Courts.

So much has been written, and spoken, about, and in opposition to the high crimes and misdemeanors of Obama and the executive branch, that it is unnecessary to reiterate the legions of evils, immoral actions, and unconstitutional abuses of power that have been perpetrated.

Obama-AmnestyHowever, it would be prudent to point out that, just during this past week alone, Obama’s Executive Branch has: (1) spit in the face of American workers by callously vetoing the Keystone XL pipeline; (2) vowed to ignore lower court rulings that his executive action to grant amnesty to 5 million illegals, is unconstitutional, and is arrogantly proceeding ahead; (3) his ordering of the Federal Communications Commission, behind the back of Congress and the people, to take control of the Internet, a dangerous infringement on free speech that will lead to censorship; (4) illegally and unilaterally engaging with our most evil enemy, Iran, behind the backs of Congress, when our Constitution clearly requires treaties to be subject to the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate; (5) publicly and illegally vowing earlier today to take executive action to raise taxes some 100 billion dollars, despite the clearly written Constitutional requirement that all taxation and spending is solely under Congressional authority.

Expounding at length regarding judicial abuses is also unnecessary, since volumes of spoken and written words have recounted the unspeakable and unconscionable actions and rulings of our United States Courts, at district, appellate and Supreme Court levels, in alliance with, or enabling of, Obama’s Executive Branch, to continuously overrule the will of the people and their state governments, and strip away our rights and liberties.   Thus our Judicial Branch of the United States Government has become, just as has the Executive Branch, the enemy of the American people.  District Court judges have targeted the religious freedoms of individuals, private businesses and church affiliated organizations.   District and Appellate Courts have betrayed the American people in countless ways, but among them has included the arbitrary and capricious overturning of traditional marriage laws enacted in more than 30 states, that were the result of democratic elections!   Then of course, the U.S. Supreme Court, despite volumes of evidence to the contrary, flouted the wisdom and popular consensus of our people, and voted 5-4 to uphold the despised Affordable Care Act, nicknamed ” Obamacare “.

Clearly, with the Obama administration and the Judiciary having become enemies of the people, the ” wave ” election in November, when so-called conservatives and Republicans won solid majorities in both houses of Congress (coupled with big GOP gains in Governorships, statewide and local elections) felt wonderful to most, at the time.   I Americans thought relief from the tyranny of the Executive and Judicial Branches was swiftly and decisively forthcoming.   The Legislative Branch would, come January 3, 2015, ” ride in like the Cavalry,” to the rescue of the American people, and begin to work with speed and diligence to restore our disintegrating republic.

republican deadTwo months later, the American people can clearly hear the roar of silence from the Members of the new Congress.  Their appalling and indefensible lack of action, is in contrast, a loud, clear message to once hopeful, patriotic and conservative Americans, that Congress has betrayed us, as surely as Obama Executive Branch and the Judges of the Courts in our Judicial Branch already have.  It is now very clear based on both the events of the past six years, and those atrocities and abuses of power of just the last six days, that Congress was the only hope remaining for the American people.   Now, as of March 3, 2015, it has become quite clear that, like the Executive and the Judiciary, our Legislative Branch has also betrayed and abandoned us.

Our Congress, like the Obama administration and the Judiciary, has by all available evidence, also become, as a body, the enemy of the American people.

In the realm of honorable academic and scientific research, there is a method for critical and impartial collection, interpretation and analysis of large amounts of information.  It is called “Meta-Analysis “. In conducting an informal ” Meta-Analysis ” of the collective actions of our three branches of government in recent years, particularly under President Obama, the analysis yields overwhelmingly the conclusion that America as a Republic was nearly destroyed by Obama and the Judiciary.   Now, with our Legislative Branch, the U.S. Congress, having betrayed and abandoned Americans since January, this writer feels compelled to ring the bells of warning to Americans, and a strong admonition to the Members of Congress, as well:  we know what you have wrought!   The United States of America is no longer a Republic!

To Members of Congress, as well as to President Obama and Members of the National Judiciary, please hear this admonition; restore our Republic, and do it immediately, or each of you who betrayed us will answer to the American people!  Unless you act with due haste to restore the Republic you have just destroyed to ” We, the People “, you will also be required to answer to Almighty God!
