Of the Republic

Cosmopolitanism is the death of a culture.
The Macedonian Culture decayed soon after they introduced this insidious concept into their existence.
The Romans grew wise to its evil and avoided making the same mistake. However, through other means, cosmopolitanism took root in their culture, and they rotted too, because of it.
Fast forward to today and observe the cosmopolitan practices that have spread across the United States Culture.
Every day that passes, I recognize US culture less. Strangers are welcome at Ellis Island, but they should not be blind and ignorant to the sacredness of the Constitution. They should appreciate the values of Liberty.
Most important, they should comprehend the origin of our culture and willfully allow it to assimilate them.
Is it too late to save our culture, I ask? Is it too late to stop the deadly cosmopolitan cancer?
I love the US Constitution.
I do not love this government, or the culture it's hell-bent to create.
We are all immigrants to this land, even the natives. History speaks of the migration trails into this land of the native people.
Throughout cultural development, boundaries between nations have given rise to immigration policy. While legal immigration is good because it allows time for a host culture to assimilate the immigrants, illegal immigration fails to protect the identity of the host culture.
Without doubt, illegal immigration eventually kills its host, and cosmopolitanism is a destroyer of cultures.

It's not a bluff.
North Korea's not exactly a puppet, even as China pulls their strings.
They're not stupid or crazy; every move's calculated.
In every calculation, the Chinese Dragon and the Russian Bear are included. Korea's never the final answer to the equation, they're simply the beginning.
The calculations aren't simple--they're a small nation, we're bigger than they are--the dragon and the bear more than equal the equation.
In the first Korean conflict, the logistics weren't sound and the war ended in a draw. The dragon learned from its mistakes and in Viet Nam the war ended in a hasty departure and a US loss.
The US has never defeated the Chinese dragon in modern warfare: one loss and one draw.
Considering the economic and military numbers of this modern equation, once again the US is starting in a hole. We're just pulling out of Afghanistan, we'll soon be $17 trillion in debt, mostly to the very enemy we'll be warring against, and we're weary of killing our enemies and losing our soldiers.
In short: we don't want to fight another war.
The dragon knows this.
The bear knows this.
We know this.
Worst of all, Pyongyang knows this.

Tax, Spend, and Waste
I filed my taxes today.
Everyone must pay their fair share, I’m told.
Everyone? Fair share?
Words that would’ve been an affront to the founding fathers.
How do I know this?
Because of the amount of waste and corruption that runs rampant in our government today.
I owe… for this…
The president has Air Force One, Marine One, and a limo available at a moment’s notice. A 2012 Congressional Research Service report found that Air Force One costs about $180,000 an hour to operate.
For the 2008 fiscal year, Bradley Patterson, a retired Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, estimated the cost of running the White House was almost $1.6 billion. That amount didn’t include unpublished classified expenses.
In 2012, the White House reported its payroll grew from $37 million in 2011 to $37.8 million. The list includes 468 names. One hundred, thirty-nine of the names make more than $100,000 a year.
Protecting the president takes a great deal of money. The agency’s budget this year is $1.6 billion. A portion of that will go toward protecting the president while in office and for life.
According to CNBC, President Obama will receive over $191,000 a year for life as soon as he leaves office.
No wonder I owe…

Soil of the Republic
When I wrote Publius: Libertas Aut Mors, I did not think that the subject matter of the novel would become reality so quickly.
The plot of the book deals with an oppressive US Government, heavily engaged in the assassination of US citizens on US soil, under the pretext of America’s war on terrorism.
I despise terrorists and I abhor traitors.
Any president who attempts to circumvent the Legislative and Judicial Branches of government with an authoritarian Executive Branch has lost the meaning of his office—to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
On US soil a US citizen—even a citizen suspected of being a criminal or a terrorist—has certain inalienable rights, according to the Constitution of the United States.
The attorney general of this administration announced on 3/5/2013 that the president has the authority to assassinate US citizens, on US soil, using predator drones.
The Constitution of the United States declares that the president does not have such power.
Let me put things in perspective. On 3/7/2013, US officials announced that the recently captured son in law of Osama bin Laden, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, would be extradited back to the US to stand trial in New York for allegedly conspiring to kill Americans. In this process, he’s read his Miranda rights, will have an appointed attorney (at US citizen expense), and afforded due process of law.
Okay, in the view of this president and his attorney general, We, the citizens of the United States can be incinerated by a predator drone, without the due process of law, yet, this former spokesman for al-Qaeda, and son-in-law of its founder, has the luxury and protection of our Constitution when he isn’t even a citizen of our country.
This is twisted, and it sickens me.
I am convinced that We the People of the United States are standing at the crossroads of our history.
It is time to make a stand against an out of control, oppressive government.
This nation has lost its way.
It must become our mission as patriots to help it find its soul.
The time is now.
Before there’s nothing left of our once great nation to save.

Citizen Kill List
It's always wrong when a government sets out to kill its citizenry. Judge Syria, or any other oppressive government.
So now, the US Government is targeting for assassination citizens who it suspects to be involved in terrorism. While there doesn't appear to be evidence to suggest the assassinations have been carried out on domestic soil, it still provokes a moment of pause.
The shock and awe of it is that the same US Government shakes hands with al Qaeda in a partnership to overthrow Syria. A method it used in Egypt, Libya, and various other parts of the world.
I despise terrorists.
US citizens suspected to have links to terrorists should be judged accordingly, and if found guilty, executed. The government should not circumvent this constitutional process.
I find it revolting that this citizen kill list exists.
Government sponsored assassination against US citizens is the very subject I write about in my latest book.
Publius: Libertas Aut Mors is a novel that describes a terrifying world filled with intrigue and government sponsored assassination against the American people in the United States. The story highlights ordinary American citizens who take action to escape the government kill list, lift the yoke of oppression, and revive a nation into liberty.
The premise of the book’s message is now reality. Pray that we, the citizens of this nation, are up to the task of securing our liberty.

The crisis before the United States is dangerous.
There is a long list of problems; we know them all too well.
The gun control issue, the economic collapse, the 23, 000, 000 jobless citizens, the $16, 500, 000, 000, 000 national debt—the list goes on and on.
The questions and the answers are important.
Only one answer will bring salvation to our divided nation.
This answer will make all of the questions before us easier to answer.
Who are we?
When we answer this question, we identify our culture, we understand our needs and wants, and we become a nation united.
Until we answer this question, we will be a nation—a culture—that has lost its way.
Are we a socialistic nation? Are we a nation who still believes in its people? Do we believe in ourselves? Do we still believe as our founders did—that We the People is greater than the government?
Are we still the United States of America of 1776? Or have we morphed into a culture that no longer believes in Liberty—no longer believes that its citizens are its greatest treasure?
Do we still believe in the American Dream?
The more that we move away from the private sector and more to the public sector, the more we become a country that is run by government and less driven by the American people. When we do this, we identify our culture as more bureaucratic and autocratic and less a free society bound to the concept of liberty.
I know who I am.
Who are we?

An estimated 22,530,746 souls exist in the land we are considering to invade.
This invasion will be dicey.
The lion, when cornered, is always dangerous prey.
The Russian support of the lion will be prominent in the coming events, as an offensive takes shape.
For so long I have comprehended that the Russian state will again expand, as it did in the 1930s. The order of expansion will center in Georgia, the Ukraine, and the Baltics.
There’s a long history here.
In this instance, a gateway into Turkey will be necessary.
This expansion can be covert, or open, but I’m certain that it will occur.
Bashar al-Assad doesn’t seem to be squeamish at the sight of blood and death. It’s in his bloodline.
As for Russia, their country suffered 23, 500, 000 dead in World War 2. Anything we through at them will be a picnic compared to what they went through in the 1940’s.
We’re not as vicious or capable as the Austrian Corporal’s mighty Wehrmacht.
Do I dare mention China?
It is for sure that we will encounter T-90s and Sukhoi T-50s if we invade the lion’s den. The J-20s won’t be far behind.
It’s an old pattern. Ask the Korean and Viet Nam vets.
If the current DC Administration thinks that Uncle Moscow and Cousin Beijing bluff, they’ll be corrected instantly.
We’re not going to be allowed to just waltz into Syria.
Moscow and Beijing will let Clinton play her cloak and dagger operations in Syria beneath the flesh and blood, but any military incursion will not be so cheap—the currency of life will be required.

Our fellow citizens at Staten Island are still trying to dig out of the wreckage of ‘superstorm’ Sandy.
According to local citizens, FEMA packed up Tuesday, and hasn't returned.
Upwards of 4,000 people are without power on Staten Island. Hundreds are staying in temporary shelters, where many complain they’re treated like prisoners, not able to freely come and go. This makes it nearly impossible for them to work towards recovery.
To make matters worse, a subsequent nor'easter has savaged the area again and has left many despondent survivors to think FEMA has forgotten them.
FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate urged people in need of assistance to go to www.disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-FEMA (3362).
As I recall the outrage of the slow government response to Katrina, I’m shocked by the near silence of the media to this horrific tragedy.
Except for a few news outlets, this story has remained hidden from the public.
