The Defining Moment for America Arrives on Election Day

All Americans should be seriously engaged in somber and careful contemplation and analysis of the raging political battles currently being played out in the Presidential primaries and caucuses in a quest for party nominations as candidates for election of a new President. News followers and current events watchers are aware that this election year is unlike any previous election year in American history. This election season is a battle of Good vs. Evil; indeed, a battle for the soul of our nation, to either be reborn as a Republic, as One Nation under God, or to be forcibly recast as a tyrannical dictatorship, and a nation ruled by ruthless men and women who either defy God or deny His presence.

All Americans who seriously care about our own future and that of the American Republic, have witnessed the catastrophic events and actions of the left-wing autocrat President, Barack Hussein Obama, his handpicked left-wing autocrats in his administration, along with left-wing autocratic federal judges, and analyzed the terrifying desolation and destruction of our Republic that have been the effects. All Americans who possess wisdom and character know all too well that Mr. Obama, his allies in government lack either wisdom or character, and are deliberately, with malice aforethought, rapidly destroying our nation and stripping our citizens of our God-given liberty and freedoms. The G.O.P. “Establishment” and “R.I.N.O.s” have joined with the Left-Wing Obama administration and the “wealthy, Globalist Corporate Elites” for “defacto one-party rule” to abolish our Bill of Rights, destroy our Constitution and extinguish all vestiges of the Rule of Law. This reprehensible alliance, led by Obama and his left-wing tyrants in Washington, D.C. have stolen justice and assumed “unjust powers”, ignoring any pretense of abiding and governing “by the consent of the governed”.

The Declaration of Independence proclaimed on July 4, 1776, not only declared America to consist of “free and independent states”, but also spelled out in very specific detail Colonial Americans’ grievances against the British King, George III, and the destructive effects of his tyrannical, despotic rule. In 2016, 240 years after that founding moment of America as a free and independent people, we face, and must confront, the darkest year in our nation’s history.

240 years after that first defining moment, we rapidly approach our next, and greatest, defining moment scarcely seven months from now. The national elections of November 8, 2016, will result in a new U.S. President being chosen, as well as many new officeholders in Congress, Governorships, and countless state and local offices. That crucial election day will be the American electorate’s last opportunity to restore our Republic through the electoral process; our final opportunity to invoke a politically democratic solution at the voting booths to reunify all patriots in what is today a deeply and dangerously divided nation.

We must pray fervently, and fight ferociously, for a Constitutional Conservative victory across our land, and first and foremost, a Constitutional Conservative President to be elected on that pivotal November day. Every precious ideal, every hope and dream, as well as every freedom and the liberty we have cherished as Americans for 240 years and shed blood to preserve is at stake in this fateful November election.

Countless editorials, articles and mountains of books have been written documenting, attesting to and describing in lurid detail the crimes against Americans – and crimes against all humanity – that have been committed during the past decades of Left-Wing political rule, and sorely intensified by the sociopathic criminals running the current administration of Barack Hussein Obama and his nefarious allies in both political parties. If we were to document fully all of their evil, despotic crimes, equally despotic and treasonous in horrifying detail, the written accounts of their individual and collective crimes would fill a small library.

Constitution and Declaration of Independence on Grungy Betsy RosThomas Jefferson, in the Declaration of Independence, enumerated and described the tyranny of the then-British dictator, King George III, to whom President Obama has been rightfully compared:

“The History of the present King of Great-Britain is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.”

In like manner, present-day Americans have enumerated and described unspeakable evils of Mr. Obama and his all-to-numerous allies, and made immutably clear the case for impeachment, removal and prosecution of this sociopathic-acting criminal. Like King George III before him, Mr. Obama, acting as President has accumulated a seven-years-long and despicable history of “ repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these (“United”) states.”

January 20, 2017 will, in accordance with our Constitution in Article II, bring about the end of the two terms of Barack Hussein Obama, who along with his administration and allies have wrought eight long years of evil against America. However; having the sordid history as President of deliberate and malicious trampling of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, there is no guarantee that Mr. Obama is planning to leave office. Principal among reasons he may actually leave office next January, are the personal ambitions of others, as well as further grand ambitions of his own. Obama is not the only evil tyrant who aspires to the office of President. In a mere seven months, on November 8, 2016, the voters of this nation will elect the 45th President of the United States. Either a Constitutional Conservative will be elected, who will lead our nation back from the brink of destruction and into the pure light of truth and justice, or a Left-Wing Autocrat will be elected, who will pursue essentially the same evil and tyrannical agenda of darkness that will extinguish our Republic and rule at the point of a sword absent any legal or Constitutional legitimacy.

At an earlier moment in time, early in 2015, this author wrote that America was approaching an irrevocable moment in time, when we must choose one of two future paths for our nation;

“Liberty, or Tyranny”.   On November 8, 2016, that choice will be made, and if “Tyranny” is chosen on that day by the American electorate via the selection of a Left-Wing Autocrat as President, there will be no going back; may God have mercy on the Soul of America.

Should Left-Wing Autocrats take control of the American government in Washington this November and thus continue down the same path of abomination that Mr. Obama has taken for the past eight years, America as a free republic as we knew it for 240 years will be finished. Our government as it now exists under Barack Obama, does not derive its just powers from the consent of the governed.” Therefore, our government is, and would continue to be. illegitimate, destructive of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness endowed upon us by our Creator. Therefore as Jefferson stated in 1776, about such an unjust and tyrannical government; it shall become “ the right of the people to alter or to abolish it.”

Thus, should such catastrophic post-election day events befall Americans, another Jeffersonian-level thinker would be required, to once again take up the pen, and “Declare these 50 states to be free and independent”. Americans would be in dire need of a righteous army of individual citizens demanding the immediate restoration of our lost Republic.

Either we elect a President in November with George Washington-like qualities and character, or, should we fail, a leader in the tradition of George Washington must rise up among us in the wake of that election, if tyranny be vanquished and freedom under God be allowed and blessed with a rebirth. May God bless America, and may His Spirit and His wisdom, guide us, on Election Day November 8 and beyond. It shall either be Liberty, or Tyranny. The stakes could not be higher unless their measure extended into the Heavens.
