T R E A S O N

Our federal public servants swear to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. All federal public servants swear to do this. Are they doing it? We the People are supposed to hold these officials accountable to keep their oaths. Are we doing it? Unfortunately, the answer is “No” to both questions.

The federal/national government powers according to the Constitution of the United States are as follows:

“The powers allocated to the national government were highly important but carefully enumerated. The Constitution lists only twenty. These are the powers relating to foreign affairs, war, peace, national security, managing interstate commerce, federal taxes, naturalization, patents, bankruptcy laws, federal lands and property, handling federal finance, coining of money, fixing weights and measures, establishing post offices, setting up federal courts and handling crimes on the high seas or violations of the laws of nations.

“The Founders feared that federal officials and federal agencies would try to invade or control the activities assigned to the states. They therefore included the Tenth Amendment to remind the federal government that it had no authority in any area not specifically described in the Constitution.”
[1]

This is the extent of the authority and power granted to the federal government. For more than a generation, We the People have been lax in our responsibility of making sure they did not overstep their boundaries. Today, we see the result. There are 435 members of the US House of Representatives, 100 US Senators, 9 US Supreme Court Justices and 1 US President. These 545 individuals have been allowed to usurp authority from the individual States and chip away at the freedom of every other citizen in the nation. We have watched these public servants change our country, one unconstitutional law at a time and we have done nothing. The result is the current members of the US Congress and the current President of the United States are committing treason against the United States.

Treason is defined as
1) the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill it’s sovereign.
2) a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to
one’s state.
3) the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

All three of these definitions of treason are actively being pursued and executed by our federal government. Our congress and president are not preserving, protecting or defending the Constitution of the United States – they are shredding it.

Let’s review, shall we? In September 2008, we were told by the former administration that we had to agree to spend $700 billion within a few days or the entire country’s financial system would collapse. The government gave the money to private banks and private financial institutions. The federal government has become a major shareholder in Citigroup, one of the world’s largest banks. Is the federal government given the authority to own, in whole or in part, private banks and financial institutions? No, it is not. This is treason.

Fannie May and Freddie Mac now control 90% of the mortgages in the country. This places the taxpayer at risk for over $5 trillion dollars. Is the federal government given the authority to own, in whole or in part, private property? No, it is not. This is treason.

Within a short time of taking office, President Obama successfully concluded a hostile takeover of General Motors and Chrysler, fired their CEOs and replaced them with political appointees. Is the federal government given the authority to own or control, in whole or in part, any private business or enterprise? No, it is not. This is treason.

The White House has appointed Kenneth Feinberg to tell American businesses how much money they are allowed to pay their CEOs. Is the federal government given the authority to tell private enterprise how much money they are to pay any or all employees? No, it is not. This is treason.

Recently, a bill was passed that will take all student loans out of the private sector and put them squarely in the lap of the federal government. Is the federal government given the authority to become a bank in order to loan money to individual citizens? No, it is not. This is treason.

The Federal Reserve, which is not a government agency but has been given control of our entire monetary system, is printing trillions of dollars and causing our currency to devalue. Because of the reckless spending and monetary policies of our government our currency is soon to be rejected by all nations as the world’s reserve currency. The intentional destruction of our currency and its value is treason.

There are many more actions of this government that are unconstitutional and treasonous but I will end with health care. The federal government is determined to completely take over the entire health care delivery system and the health insurance industry. Once this is accomplished, they will have the ability to take more of our hard earned money to waste however they see fit and they will be able to control our lives in ways we can only imagine at this point.

The President and Congress know We the People do not want this hostile takeover of the health care industry and, yet, instead of listening to We the People their intent is to pass the legislation anyway. Is the federal government given the authority to take over approximately 17% of the US economy and nationalize it? No, it is not. This is treason.

The federal government is given the authority to manage interstate commerce. Therefore, instead of a hostile takeover, they could break down all state barriers and allow all health insurance companies to sell insurance in any or all states of the union. This would be true competition.

Our president has appointed several dozen consultants, so called czars, that not only answer to him alone but a lot of them have contempt for the Constitution of the United States. This only makes it easier to accomplish their destruction of the country because there is no allegiance to our founding document. This is treason.

Instead of questioning our government and its actions, We the People have become lazy and self absorbed. If we don’t stand up now and stop this out of control government, we will soon be living in a Marxist state. This government, Democrats and Republicans, are committing treason, daily. They should be removed from office and face charges. Who will stand up and speak the truth? Who will have the courage to stop this treasonous federal government?
