Squaring the Culture

"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."

A Message to US Delegates in Copenhagen and the Rest of the World

Today is the 236th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party.

Tomorrow morning, delegates at the Copenhagen climate change summit will read in the newspaper of the meeting the following message from the people of the United States, courtesy of American Solutions:

In America, We Have a Constitution.
It Begins: “We the People”

Our Constitution Requires International Agreements to
Be Agreed Upon By our Senate

Our President Does Not Have Support in our Senate for
Binding Carbon Emissions Limits

Our Environmental Protection Agency Recently Asserted It Has the
Power to Impose Carbon Emissions Limits

Such Action would be Tantamount to our Executive Branch Taxing the American People without
Approval from the Elected Representatives in our Legislative Branch

That’s Called “Taxation without Representation” and
We Will Not Stand for it

The American Revolution and a Famous Tea Party in
Boston in 1773 Was About Rejecting Taxation without Representation

We Reject Taxation without Representation even if it
is attempted by our President through an international “political” agreement like the Copenhagen 15

Through Our Election Process, our Presidents, Representatives, and Administrators Are
Accountable to the American People

Unlike Other Countries, We Do Not Have a Democracy Deficit

In America, Mesdames and Messieurs, We the People Govern


Appropriate thanks to Newt Gingrich at American Solutions. This is a clear declaration, and I’ll stand by it.

Ok…but if push comes to shove…

What comes next?

I’m not sure. Possibly mass civil disobedience. Possibly mass impeachments. Impromptu votes of no confidence. Large demonstrations. A flood of lawsuits against the national government.

I’m keeping my eye on Gingrich, he seems to have good ideas, most of them based on things that have been done before, drawn from his astounding breadth of knowledge about US history.

Very well put . . . and well placed for all to see.

I have mixed feelings about Gingrich. I agree that he has good ideas, but I think he’s – like McCain – too willing to do a deal with the devil. I understand that compromise is necessary – at least sometimes – but it seems to me that they’re often too willing to give up too much. They’re too gentlemanly to do battle with those whose philosophy requires the ultimate destruction of the Republic – even if it takes a hundred years.

My husband says you have to be willing to give an inch or two…bargaining is necessary, as is compromise. But it seems to me that if your goal is to obtain a foot, then if you get 12 one inch compromises, you’ve won. The dems never give up anything – it’s always take take take. We need some leaders who are willing to go head to toe with them and no quarter given.

Or so it seems to me.

I would be very proud to sign my name to this statement;
