Commentary by J. A. Davis

"The principal for which we contend is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form." —Jefferson Davis

"Though written constitutions may be violated in moments of passion or delusion, yet they furnish a text to which those who are watchful may again rally and recall the people. They fix, too, for the people the principles of their political creed." —Thomas Jefferson

For you loyal souls that follow our commentaries the question may arise relative to what this effort may have to do with our heritage?

Take just a few moments and perhaps you will understand of all our valued heritage, liberty is paramount. The rest derives from it.

We are seriously close to losing both our liberty and our heritage.

Too many events are happening too fast to try to define in any detail what is happening around us. I will attempt to point out the seriousness of these events for your own further thought and research.

Perhaps after reviewing only a few items which are generally being covered up in a cloak of secrecy, you will wonder with me where has our liberty gone, and what is worse, what has replaced it?

Those who have followed the revelations of Jim Dean, Steve Scroggins, Mike Crane, Bill Vallante, Joan Hough, Frank Conner, Frank Gillispie, Calvin Johnson and others, may recognize some topics I urge you to further investigate and then see if we’re jointly ready to clean house in Washington and Atlanta.

To those who believe cleaning house means exchanging one set of liberty thieves for an equal or worse group, we may have to keep changing until the message is loud and clear, "Don’t Tread On Me."

There are very few left in either our national or state government that have any respect for the Constitution or the "consent of the governed." They make pretty sounds about their love of our traditions, but they connive and vote, often without trace, against the pillars of our independence.

We would be better served to eliminate almost all of them and give some new ones the chance to either support our basic ideals, or be disposed in the same trash heap as their predecessors.

Here are some items that you need to put into your own evaluation of who should be guiding our ship of state:

Are you aware under the guise of Homeland Security Congress has just approved denying you your basic rights such as Habeas Corpus? You can be jailed without charge, with no legal representation, and you can be tried in a military tribunal. And yes, you can be held without trial or charges almost indefinitely. Don’t tell me it can’t happen here. It has before, and that became the model for the new tyranny.

Would you be indignant if you knew your rights of privacy have been removed and Big Brother is listening and watching as you read on? This has recently been approved as well. [ Headline: Court says eavesdropping program can continue ]

Are you concerned that the most powerful lobbies in America today are in order, Socialists and a foreign government?

Have you ever wondered why there has been a cover up of the Israeli attacks on the USS Liberty that cost hundreds of American lives and casualties, yet we can’t get the truth after all these years.

Are you aware our trade deficit reaches new highs every month, but we’re lulled into security with rosy economic reports. Meanwhile global monopolists have a green light to destroy American free enterprise, sending manufacturing and jobs overseas.

Those who tell you the New World Order is poppycock need to be shown the North American Union as our sovereignty unravels before our very eyes.

And what would you think if Congress has been fully briefed by Congressman Weldon of Pennsylvania (Vice Chairman of the Intelligence Committee) regarding the intentional blockage of advance information about the planned attacks on 9/11? Worse, the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency are throttling those who know the facts. Balderdash you say? The former director of the FBI has confirmed it. Yet, the cover up continues.

For those who have fallen for the pre-election claptrap about how we’re securing our borders and reforming the flow of illegals with sound penalties, wake up and smell the tamales!

This is just a start on what is bothering me about our lost liberty. There is more and I appreciate you reminding me of other examples that diligent patriots should know about.

I know not about you, but I’m all for sending these despotic sheep in wolves clothing back to the holes they crawled out of. Forget the party, they’re equally guilty. Dump them all save the few patriots who have had the guts to try to expose them at the cost of rare honorable careers.

We may be close to the admonition of President Davis about the cause of the Constitution reasserting itself. Maybe one day, I hope before it’s too late, he will get the gratitude of a respectful nation, that is, if one remains.
