We must restore constitutional governance

Politics exist to pervert American governance and to take just power from sovereign citizens and accrue it to individual politicians.

Politicians are already starting with the great sounding yet preposterous promises. Here are some clues to identify their lies:

Never trust anyone who is giving away anything that is paid for by someone else.

Politicians like to “attack” Wall Street. But Wall Street keeps donating to, and getting bailed-out by, the many politicians that grow rich from their donations. Study the source of political contributions to predict whom a candidate is actually serving.

“Science” by its nature is never settled. Anytime a politician says “the science is settled,” they’re lying.

The Internet should be “neutral” (but closed to conservatives). If we want the Internet to become useless, let an international organization control it: think “United Nations.”

Hard work has never equaled success. Only profitable work yields success.

“Living wage” is a lie when defined by anyone but consumers. Only commerce creates prosperity. Commerce always decreases whenever non-value-added mandated costs increase.

Schooling is no guarantee of success; only effective education improves employability. The quality of American education over the past 35 years has been inversely proportional to federal government control.

Government benefits are worse than a Ponzi scheme because they are funded with worthless scrip that devalues every other dollar in circulation. They make citizens dependent, not independent.

Marriage is not an inalienable right. Therefore, the federal government has been delegated no constitutional authority over the institution.

When politicians praise or condemn any act or policy, it is only because it is profitable for them to do so. Politicians are driven solely by two principles: extortion and bribery (masquerading as popular benefits).

Anyone who votes for a political party or political platform is directly destroying America.

The Constitution clearly specifies every role of government; and nowhere does it include interpretation because of the political philosophy of the office holder.

Restore constitutional governance to restore America.
