The United States no longer has, as the Constitution designed, a government composed of executive, legislative and judicial branches, separate, but equal in power.
The federal government is now an alliance of branches, devoted to the preservation of government itself, separate, not from each other, but from the American people and dedicated to tyranny.
The policies pursued by the Obama Administration and facilitated by cowardly politicians and a compliant media are not simply the intersection of radical ideology and incompetence, but a dangerous subversive element of an anti-American and anti-Western strategy.
Cultural Marxism and its many variants, such as political correctness and multiculturalism, is now firmly ensconced in the White House and the Democrat Party, while the Republican Party, dominated by eunuchs and the avaricious, continuously accommodates its "principles" to match an ever-shifting leftward movement of the "conventional wisdom." It does so solely in to maintain its place as the token opposition and grifter at the federal tax-revenue trough for the personal financial benefits that it provides.
After the successful 1917 communist revolution in Russia, it was widely believed that a proletarian revolt would sweep across Europe and, ultimately, North America. It did not.
As a result, the Communist International began to investigate other ways to create the state of societal hopelessness and alienation necessary as a prerequisite for socialist revolution - in essence, to destroy western democracy from within.
The single, most important organizational component of this conspiracy was a Communist think tank called the Institute for Social Research, popularly known as the Frankfurt School. The task of the Frankfurt School was first, to undermine the Judeo-Christian foundation of Western civilization that emphasized the uniqueness and sacredness of the individual and, second, to determine new cultural forms which would increase the disaffection of and division among the population.
Just as in classical economic Marxism, certain groups, i.e. workers and peasants, are a priori good, and other groups, i.e., the bourgeoisie and capital owners, are evil; in Cultural Marxism feminist women, racial and ethnic minorities and those who define themselves according to sexual orientation are deemed good and "victims" of societal injustice. Similarly, white males and "privilege" and, by extension, Western civilization, are automatically and irredeemably malevolent.
Sound familiar? It has been the playbook of the American left for over sixty years. The aim is not to solve social injustice or protect "rights, "of which the left can concoct an endless supply, but to undermine and topple Western democracy.
The new element in this formula, using the "enemy of my enemy is my friend" paradigm, is what David Horowitz described as an unholy alliance between leftists and radical Islam. They have been brought together by the traits they share - their hatred of Western civilization and their belief that the United States is the embodiment of evil on earth. While Islamic radicals seek to purge the world of heresies and of the infidels who practice them, leftist radicals seek to purge society's collective "soul" of the vices allegedly spawned by capitalism -- those being racism, sexism, imperialism, and greed.
That combination of these ultimately mutually exclusive, but temporarily useful, ideologies is arguably the modus operandi of Barack Hussein Obama and his inner circle with a larger cast of fellow travelers and useful idiots.
It is no surprise, then, that lying and secrecy have become the hallmarks of an administration immune both to facts and reason, plagued by contradictions and led by an individual with the impatience and petulance of an insecure adolescent from a political party with the emotional stability of a disgruntled postal worker.
Obama's transformation is fundamentally the degradation and humbling of a great nation he considers venal and corrupt, but is, in reality, merely a description of the content of his own character.
He and his present anointed successor and Mini Me, Hillary Clinton, are manifestations of modern-day, totalitarian Liberalism, in its insatiable thirst for power, where persuasion is replaced by coercion to implement policies that are inherently damaging to liberty and the national interest.
Unfortunately, the federal government, as an institution, has largely come to reflect those same characteristics, the tyranny that led the Founding Fathers to declare independence.
In their effort to make the central government "too big to fail," the political-media complex has made it too corrupt to reform.

Yes that is why many of us joined and formed this project to educate the State citizens and the State Legislators that we are coming for them so get ready to fight for us or we will replace you. We can all look our State legislators in the eyes so they can not hide - go to their offices, businesses and knock on their doors they are our neighbors.
If they get 100 to 500 visits they will change rather quickly and support the Article V action to correct.

I'm with you.
While you speak about going after your state politicos, here's something for you that you may not be aware of.
In many states, at least those I've researched, an elected official(officer) is required to be bonded. Said bond is a surety bond, commonly referred to as a faithful performance bond, because in part, the officer's bond contains wording of his/her faithful performance.
Such a bond, being a requirement to hold office, is a public document; the bond must be recorded/filed with an appropriate office; for state officers that would be the Secretary of State. Bonds must be recorded BEFORE the politico can ENTER the office and ACT(discharge duties). Failure or neglect to record the bond creates a vacancy in the office; so say the courts on this subject.
If said politician has not timely recorded(within an appropriate period of time) the bond they may physically be sitting in the office BUT they have no legal/lawful authority to act, again, so say the courts.
This same requirement for recordation ALSO applies to a written and signed oath; AND that recorded oath MUST be one for the current term. If it isn't, the office is vacant.
We have found, more than a few times no current oath; or a bond. Knowing and understanding this, and finding someone with no bond is a very destructive tool in one's hands AGAINST any politician.
There is a bit more to all this, bonding, but the foregoing will suffice to give you something to mull over.
Hey Richard - no I had no knowledge of such a requirement - have you researched which States have such requirements?
We will publish such a list on the Article V Library site.
Richard after doing some research after you sent the piece you wrote - I have found that many and maybe all States have some bonding requirements. Even the Sheriff must be bonded. I believe that when it is researched well and details published then distributed to the people - the Political class will change their tunes.
Texas has a very detailed plan Statute and here is part. . .
III. OFFICIAL BONDS Officers required by law to give an official bond shall file the bond with the officer’s oath of office.38 34 60 Tex. Jur. 3d, Public Officers and Employees, §259 (1988). Generally, the required bonds must be given before an officer begins performance of any duties of office. An officer who is required by law to give an official 35 60 Tex. Jur. 3d, Public Officers and Employees, §262 (1988). 36 Id. §258. 37 Id. Compare TEX. GOV. CODE, §601.002 (first assistant or chief deputy of a public office in which a physical vacancy occurs shall conduct the affairs of the office until a successor qualifies for the office, unless the vacancy is on a board or commission). 38 TEX. GOV. CODE, §604.001 8 bond and who fails to execute the bond within the time prescribed by law may be removed from office.39
We are clearly under attack and the evidence is all over the place! We say prepare...well that time has come gone and BO and his Commie/Fascist/NWO/Muslim want this War... they have declared War on "We the People"..!!!! God help us please!
I have said for about ten years that the only way to restore our Republic is by civil disobedience, protests in the streets, and ultimately by the barrel of a gun. All those who believe in freedom have a duty to remove these reprobates in the government and form a more perfect union.
