A Letter

                Chief Justice John Roberts in his" Obamacare" opinion, affirmed that the responsibility of governance in these United States of America is the responsibility of "We the people".  We have failed our governance duty. By this failure we have allowed both political parties for their own benefit to destroy the two important constraints upon the central government; the restriction on direct taxation and the sovereignty of the several states. (The 16th and 17th Amendments ratified in1913.) In the midst of the 1930's depression, the political parties further expanded the power of the central government with the New Deal and in 1937, the Supreme Court set aside the Constitution's concept of limited enumerated powers and the constraints contained in the 10th Amendment.

We have embraced the two great Ponzi schemes, Social Security and Medicare, which enrich the coffers of the central government and the Oligarchy that rules it. These schemes now double the revenue sources available to the Oligarchy without regard to the original purposes.

 We have allowed the creation of government employee unions that negotiate with the political arm of the Oligarchy for their benefit and the reciprocal contribution benefit to incumbent politicians with no consideration of "We the people".

We have allowed those who debase our Christian heritage to force us through litigation threat to deny our Creator and thereby strip us of our "inalienable rights ".

Are we not at a moment today, as we were as a nation some 149 years ago when these words echoed across a silent battlefield?  "- That this nation under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
