It is so often said that the nation is “divided,” or “polarized.” The pundits and politicians tell us the fight is between the left and the right, conservatives and liberals or Democrats and Republicans. They are very wrong. The nation is indeed divided, but the divisions are not really the ones they want you to believe.
The divisions they promote are designed to create a fake fight. It is manufactured spectacle in order to divide We the People against ourselves, so that the ruling elite in Washington, DC, and those who feed the spectacle and profit from it in the media can maintain their power. The real fight in America is between the ruling elite, and We the People. And for the most part, We the People are united against that ruling elite. Need evidence?
This week the Convention of States project has demonstrated a unity of purpose against the overreach of the federal government that spans all regions of the country. Literally in only the last week, resolutions were filed calling for a Convention of States to limit the power of the federal government in Massachusetts and New Hampshire (New England / Northeast), New Jersey (East), Virginia and South Carolina (South), Missouri and Nebraska (MidWest), North Dakota (North), Wyoming (West), Arizona (Southwest), and in Montana (Northwest). Many more states will be filing in the coming weeks. We the People are united in our fight against the overreach of the federal government.
We the People are standing up, fighting back, and reclaiming our heritage, and that national heritage knows no state or regional boundaries. The states created the federal government, and gave it limited enumerated powers. Congress and the President have far exceeded these powers, with the cover of the federal courts. But We the People have reached the limits of our patience and tolerance. And we intend to use the power reserved to our state legislatures in Article V to call a convention to propose amendments to restrain the federal government.
