An Open Rant to the President and 'We the People'

Dear Mr. President

Would it be possible for you to exercise some measure of intellectual faculty and answer the following query? Is it within the realm of probability for a man bound in human frailties to run a governmental construct, and while restraining his iniquitous nature, disallow the natural tendency to trespass on the unalienable rights of the people? A burdensome question by any measure, but a connotation exists which must first be acknowledged in order to facilitate the conclusion I seek. Therefore deliberation should become your imperative by which a resolution may be logically derived, a failure to do so would only result as a failed endeavor.

In view of the previous weight set before you, may I impose an additional question for consideration? Would you acquiesce to my asseveration that the fundamental structure and purpose of the Constitution is to confine the parameters of government, as well as constrain potential abuse by those addicted to the opiate of power?

"In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." Thomas Jefferson

Can it also be stated that the intrinsical fallibility that precludes the revelation of the normative is the audacity of arrogance? Many politicians claim that our Constitution is a superannuated document that fails to address the advancement of a progressive nation - much less the societal and economic corollaries that manifest as a consequence to the increasing size of this country. I submit that this can be a dangerous form of myopia. The Founding Fathers were marked by inventive skill and imagination, their faculty of reason and cogitation are still unmatched. What they knew and subsequently designed is a dynamic, a duality whereby;

"Every constitutional right is a claim against an affirmative action of government, and complementary to the exercise of a delegation of power to that government. A constitutional provision that protects a right restricts powers, and a delegation of a power restricts rights. A challenge for leadership is to define the line separating the two spheres of action, and to separate and confine the actions of civilians and officials within their proper spheres." Jon Roland

Declaratory provisions notwithstanding, the answer lies in human nature Mr. President. A balance had to be engineered to counteract any person in positions of power from employing his or her personal proclivities towards the acquisition of power and influence.

"It may be a reflection on human nature that such devices [as Constitutional chains] should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature?" James Madison

In your vociferous attempts to redesign our Republic you exclude the very thing our Founding Fathers warned against - is your vision for this country superior to that which required blood sacrifice to build? To claim vehemently that we face trials and tribulations that could not be perceived at an earlier time dispels my aforementioned determinant. And in doing so you fail at upholding a sacred task by seeking a legacy unworthy of our nation's history. You will most undoubtedly persist in your endeavors of re-construction, and with the assistance of your Judas goats, pursue in full measure the complete abdication of individual liberties for the sake of the collective. But I caution you and your political party not to underestimate the people's resolve. Try as you may to subjugate those who are disinclined to follow you Mr. President, my Counterfeit Prince, it would serve you well to read and remember the following poem from William Ernest Henley - so you can see the Herculean event you are facing.


Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance.
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

You may send me and my brothers and sisters to bended knee, but we will not yield. History will find you flaccid and an unkept promise, how much damage and loss of liberty will prove to be the true testament. To those of you who question your mettle after the battery and outright rejection imposed by members of the media please consider the following;

"These are the times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still
calm of life, or in the
repose of a pacific station, that great characters are
formed. ...Great necessities call out great
virtues." Abigail Adams

The task remains ominous, but our natural virtue, which our Founding Fathers viewed as an unbreakable precept,
remains as an untapped resource that only
needs introspective discovery. I have found mine, will you find yours?

In support of other bloggers to share their viewpoints, I would like to offer,
The Conservative Hideout 2.0. Take some time and look at this blog, read
some articles, and post some comments. Thank you

LP, I gotta be honest with you here: I don't think Obugger will understand your letter. I think you gotta come down (as all liberal policies would have you do) to his level."

May I suggest a few more "ahhhs" and "ummmmms" and "I'll get back to you on thats"?

the Liberty Pen said...

@Dr. Dave: You are correct Sir, unfortunately I mailed the letter. The sad news is, he actually won't be reading it, one of his minions will. In my next letter I will put a lot of WTF! in there. I will have you proof read it. :-)

Matt said...

Well done sir. We three have been poking at the messiah a bit this weekend, haven't we?

the Liberty Pen said...

Thank you Sir for your comment. I agree, we have been the proverbial thorn in the side of a man too concentrated on his self-endowments.
With regard to our association, I find myself lucky to be in such excellent company.

Dr. Dave said...

You could always report yourself to I'm assuming that has a higher reading priority for Zero.

@Dr. Dave: Funny you mention that, I sent the following letter to that address on 8/5/09;

Dear Praetorians,

I am writing to address the issue of your draconian measures of utilizing government informants to indict those who act in dissent. Your requisition to effect incrimination for a policy constructed of socialism should cause one to deliberate over the utter disregard for our Constitution. Pray tell, once your obsequious sycophants procure all of the requisite personal information on those who refuse to conform to the administration's authority and doctrine, what will you do with said information? Will it be cataloged? What would the Founding Fathers say over your Hitlerian attempts to control public discourse and information? I am well aware of your assertions that misinformation exists over your attempt to socialize health care. But it begs the question; is it the egregiousness of non-capitulation that is the derivation of your indignation, or is it the failure of progressive collectivism to completely stifle the certitude of individual sovereignty?

Perhaps the problem of disinformation would not exist if the videos of Frank and President Obama extolling the virtues and intent of implementing socialized health care didn't exist. Perhaps you should control your own backyard before attacking the public-at-large.
