Forum Post: The Sovereign Authority of the People

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.



We the People



We the People . . .

. . . do ordain and establish . . .

We the People are the sovereign authority. Our forebears did establish the Constitution, and they did so to establish a more perfect union, and that union is and has for some considerable time been thrust into a state of continual siege.

Our elected officials and those whom they have appointed, no more than regents acting on our behalf, have in many particular instances and as an overall whole, succumbed to the pressures of corporate usurpory of the People's prerogatives and authority.

This state of affairs cannot continue.

Our regents come before us and make the most outlandish of proclamations, insisting on the likes of corporate personhood - as if the corporation itself does indeed possess a tongue and thus must be permitted to heap extravagant sums - in silence and in secret - upon advertisers and media barons that the people may better hear their voice.

It is thus that we know and are certain - a virtual parliament has been raised against us. It does present to us, in no uncertain terms, that stark and undeniable prospect of regicide.

Our current state is not in dispute. Around the nation are heard the rumblings of effort to launch a Constitutional referendum in accord with the provisions of Article V. This would not be so were our current status today something other than that of extreme peril.

The blessed fruit of our forebears has become so corrupted by our inattention and the indiscretions posed by those who would usurp our authority that finally we must conclude and agree:

There Is No Alternative.

We must rise up, as monarchs.

We must rise up and confront as Kings this High Treason that has been done unto us. We must identify the individual members of that virtual parliament and treat them in accord with the law of their ancestry. They must be taken to the public square, where they may be drawn and quartered.

There are perhaps those who will insist that such an act is surely both cruel and unusual, and that it is therefore unConstitutional in accord with Amendement VIII. To that I would insist that while it may indeed be cruel, it is not at all unusual, and was in fact the law of the land in Britain for over 500 years. By that law men were punished in just this manner for just such crime. Men like Sir William Wallace and Guy Fawkes.

It must be remembered: despite the provisions contained in the Eighth Amendment, torture was in fact unapologetically recommended to the People as both necessary and indispensable, and indefinite detention remains the law of the land.

In this land. Our land. The land where We are King.

There Is No Alternative.

We must Rise Up.

Rise up like Monarchs.

Well said. This needs to stay on top.

Good write. I pushed you up one on all of 'em. I'm sure you've raised the ire of the wretched right wing. Not only are they devoid of that which the rest of us define as reason, they can't read anything too complicated either. You're sure bound to piss 'em off with that.

Thanks - I do try.

If we demonstrate their hypocrisy and their lies, we can reclaim the very iconography they use, and perhaps if the right language and imagery is used, appeal to the masses.

Once the masses are mobilized, these pretenders can be deposed, and at that point we can redefine the economic structure.

Attempting to do so before hand is simply divisive.

Oh, man. That ain't gonna be easy but, I got your back on that one. Can I borrow your Kochtopus and spread it around a bit? Of course, I'll need to draw in a few repug heads being choked in the tentacles.

I just really like the pictures. No really. It's true. I do.

Someone should tell Congress to kick back and relax.

the People are coming.

I wish I had an image editor I knew how to use - The Kochtopus needs it's heads sliced off at the neck, and falling to the right as you look at the image, with a monarch hovering above somewhere.

The monarch of course symbolic of the People's sovereignty, though of course that may not be a traditional use of the image. In this case it can also symbolize the destruction caused by Monsanto and the retribution of either . . . Monarch . . . perhaps ultimately they are the same, but never mind.

zero points

I get it. Zero points while four of my other recent comments get up voted.

There was one other but never mind that isn't the point. I understand. It almost has to be the same person voting, and now they'll change their vote and that's fine. I understand.

Honestly I don't care if someone chooses to interpret what I posted above literally or not. It isn't my problem. I was speaking of the image. I am not in control over what anyone else does or how they interpret things.

And I most certainly will not - under any circumstances - apologize.

I refuse.

And finally the only accusation that may be raised is raised.

This post stands and may be judged as it is, and so it will be known, whether the accusation bear any merit, or not.

Rise up I say.

Like Kings.
