“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” — John Adams
As we have lost our morality, we have lost our Constitution. If Adams was right, we must recover our morality to rediscover the Constitution. An election of a President is more than about political power. It’s about our character as a nation, as reflected in the leader we choose. We are not so debased as to knowingly elect a sociopath to office. We’ve done it once before, with Clinton, but most people didn’t realize what kind of man he really was. With Trump, the word defines him.
Trump has a disregard for the feelings of others, a lack of remorse or shame, manipulative behavior, unchecked egocentricity, and the ability to lie to achieve his goals. Those aren’t my words. That’s the text book definition of a sociopath. Look it up. If the shoe fits, wear it, and this fits Donald like a glove.
The great Italian-American Angelo Codevilla has a piece out called “After the Republic.” Angelo’s in a panic. He thinks the country’s going all going to hell, and Trump will look like a moderate before it’s over. He’s wrong. Hillary Clinton is the tide at full ebb, as low as it gets. Her election will mark the turning of the tide, the tide against the center. She’ll make no further progress. The tide is running against her.
The movement begins the day after the election. It’s a fusion of the Trump faction with the constitutional conservatives, libertarians, and religious conservatives. A majority in this country. In many respects, it’s Trumpism without Trump. It’s everybody who can’t stand Clinton, because she’s corrupt and a tool of Wall Street. That’s a lot of people. That’s enough to take the country back. This election was a one off, a freak. The fire next time will be different.
I had a good talk with Loren Enns, Western Field Director of the BBA Task Force. He was in St. George, Utah, on his way to Phoenix. He’s been chasing down Wyoming State Legislators, trying to educate them about Article V, and the BBA. He’s had great success, and based on his report, and his work, Wyoming looks like a slam dunk. He’s also been in Idaho, and has lined up 22 yes votes within the 27 member Senate Majority. This guy’s a dervish. Things are looking good in Arizona, and Loren will probably be there for a week, seeing the legislative leadership, and counting votes. Then he’s got to go back to Idaho for another round up there. He quit his job, which was a good one, to do this, and a lot of it is coming out of his own pocket. I think of all these people, at all these think tanks, writing reports, and doing research, and having meetings, and doing whatever the hell it is they do. And they accomplish absolutely nothing. And one guy, Loren Enns, at great personal cost, has assured us of States 29, 30 and 31. O. K., I’m exaggerating. But there aren’t too many around like Loren Enns.
Co-Founder Darren set this blog up for me just about three years ago. It was right after I decided to get back into politics, and work on the Article V BBA. We’ve made great progress in three years, from 17 States to 28. We just need six more. We should get four next year, easy, and then it gets hard. But maybe then we can get some public attention.
