March 2013 – The Self Serving Elitist Class
by Dr. David M. Berman
History has much to teach us, and it is always a shame when I hear people speak of modern events and decisions without any historical perspective. We know from history how tyrants come to power and what truly motivates them. Money certainly is a motivating factor, however it never stops there. The true lust that motivates them for the long term is not only money, but also power. Once tyrants have money they do not leave their position of power. Instead, they seek more power, more control, and the more never satisfies. This power fuels their elitism, furthering their megalomania, reducing their “subjects” to mere peasants.
In order to maintain control, authoritarians always create a certain ruling class that I call the Self Serving Political Class. This is the class of societal elite whose purpose is to increase centralized power and maintain it. They are always placed in positions of influence such as government, education, media, and entertainment where they are rewarded for their loyalty to the system of political elite autocracy. They themselves do very well since the senior leaders of the self serving political class need them to maintain and grow their power. After a while many in this class actually begin to believe that they are good and are functioning for the good of society. It is in this dilution that they lose all sense of the principles of liberty that our founders realized were “self evident.”
Great nations are rarely conquered, they usually rot from within. We are in the worse time in our nation’s history. Some would say that I am foolish to make such a statement. I however stand by this statement and I will explain why. If we point to what most would say was the most difficult time in the history of America; The Civil War, we see something much different than now. There is no doubt that the Civil War was an intense trying time with death, and destruction. It was a time when perhaps our nation could have fallen so low as to be invaded and taken over by a power that would use our divisional weakness against us. That was a bad time and yet not as foundationally bad as now. We can point to times like WW2 when we were fighting both the German’s and the Japanese with great strain on our country. That was also a very difficult time and yet our nation was on a much stronger philosophical foundation than we are on now. We can look back on many times of great testing however there has never been a time in our history that we have so moved away from the principles of liberty as we have in the last 20 years, and particularly since Barack Obama became president. With a majority in the house and a filibuster proof senate, the Marxist President Obama has a willing self serving political class to institute tyranny as this nation has never experienced. Thankfully we survived the great tests. The Civil War was a fight to restore liberty that saw the end of slavery and the beginning of bringing civil rights to Black Americans. WW2 was a fight against a nation that attacked us and a nation that sought to dominate Europe and exterminate an entire race of people. Hitler had to be stopped. These fights were principled in liberty, as was the American Revolution.
The fight we are in now is another civil war. For the moment it has been a cold war without bloodshed. The ruling self serving political class has pulled out all the stops and is going for their true desire; power! They have taken over huge portions of the private sector and are seeking to totally control the citizenry. They tell us what we can and can’t do, what we can say, and when we can say it, what we must buy and not buy, how we can and can’t use our land that they make us pay rent in the form of property taxes at the threat of them confiscating it. They arbitrarily quote the Constitution when it suits there aims, and reject its principles constantly when it threatens their supremacy. These are the worst kind, who use the money and power that they seize from the citizens through intimidation to keep them in power. They do this while they perpetrate the charade of free and fair elections with the choice of two parties who work together for the furtherance of the self serving political class. This is why they make it so hard for a challenging party to get on the ballot.
Although it is clear that the Republican Party contains many conservatives at the grass roots, it is also clear that the Republican Party self serving leadership class is not conservative, but rather is in a dance with their cousins the Democrats. Together they have established an industry where money is raised to pay them and all their political operatives who work to continue their political corruption. Hundreds of millions of dollars are raised for the purpose of furthering the political industry that has come about by graft, and manipulation of the masses.
The war we are in is not for the change of a few things that we may disagree with. This is not simply disagreements on basic methods of grey areas. It is much more than that. We fight for the very same thing that sparked the American Revolution. This time the enemies of liberty are not only within, but also hold the most powerful positions of ill-gotten authority. They occupy huge bureaucracies in government. They are Presidents, Congressmen, Senators, staffers, and entire political machines. They are media elites and leaders of our education institutions. These are not Americans. They are traitors who put self interests above the Constitution. Their world-view is Marxist, (in some ways, Fascist) and globalist with them ruling all who they consider to be unenlightened, old fashioned, and lacking intellectual prowess. You know the contempt they have for those (as Obama put it) who “cling to their guns and religion.” They are the ruling class, the self serving ones, the ones who desire global government and the destruction of our national sovereignty. They push for global treaties that place the United Nations in authority over American citizens. They desire global taxes and regulations, they negotiate trade policy that devastates our countries ability to manufacture goods and thus provide for itself (making us more dependent of foreign countries).
What are we who believe in the founding principles to do? Are we to sit back and watch our heritage be stolen from us? Are we to get in line with the culture of corruption, graft, payoff and find a way to get some crumbs that fall from the “King’s table?” Do we have a right to fight? Should we fight beyond just words and political action or does there ever come a time to say; ENOUGH!!!? Does there come a time to bear arms in defense of liberty? These are questions we freedom loving, God fearing, Constitution Patriots must answer. The government is already labeling American Constitutional advocates as “terrorists.”
I am not calling for an armed revolution at this point. I hope and pray that we can turn things around and return to our beautiful root principles that we may all…White, Black, Hispanic (or whatever ethnic makeup) live under the Constitution that made this country to envy of the world, and as close to the best that ever can be in a fallen world run by imperfect humans. There may come a time to bear arms we must. I pray that does not happen but if given a choice between hard tyranny and fighting for liberty I know what choice I will make.
I know that the words I speak may seem radical to some who read this but that is because of what I said in the beginning of this article; “it is always a shame when I hear people speak of modern events and decisions without any historical perspective.” Do you not realize that you would not have this nation if Patriots of liberty did not fight against tyranny? Does not history teach us of the vile abuses of repressive rulers? My people (The Jews) waited too long to defend themselves from the Hitler’s minions. History is replete with examples of people allowing the self serving political class to slowly take their liberty until it’s too late to fight. Am I radical because I believe the founding of America was paid for with the blood of freedom loving Patriots? Am I radical because I believe that the Constitution must not be arbitrarily interpreted as to allow the destruction of the principles it stands for? Am I radical because I expect the people who put their hand on the Bible, and solemnly swear to defend the Constitution from all enemies both “foreign and domestic, to not become the very enemies they swore to defend against? Consider these “radical” words;
“All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”
Radical? Terrorist? Is that what these words are? Indeed not! These are the words of our Declaration of Independence. These words were confirmed by men who understood liberty and were willing to fight for it. As I said, I hope and pray that we do not get to the point of armed resistance; however I fear that is exactly what is going to happen because there is a breaking point for freedom loving honest people. There comes a point where the winds of freedom blow in such a way as to make men see the principle of the most powerful of quotes of the revolution;
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” – Patrick Henry
I am not some crazy forty year old man still living in his mother’s basement writing this anonymously from behind a computer screen. (Like so many cowards who criticize me). I have been in business, have employed people, have started three churches, personally trained men for ministry, and have raised a family. People know me. My website tells you where to get in touch with me. This is not a joke people, this is real. Wake up!
The time may come when I will get arrested for saying what I am saying in this article. Alarmist you say? The F.B.I “Terrorism Task Force” already issued a pamphlet declaring that “defenders of the Constitution” are “extremists” and that the F.B.I should be on the lookout for them. Alarmist you say? So called “Hate Crimes” legislation has been signed by President Obama and enacted to limit the first amendment, as well as the bill that President Bush signed into law called “Campaign Finance Reform” which limits political speech. Alarmist? President Obama had a web site set up so citizens could report other citizens who are sending out “misinformation” How about the 2700 armored personnel vehicles that the Department of Homeland Security is ready to “deploy?” Do you not see the history of “big brother” repeating itself? I hope you know the answer to this question: Is it I and others like me who are radicals or is it those who trample the rule of Constitutional law who are the radicals?
I cannot say what other men may do, or what it may take for other men to get to the point that Patrick Henry came to. What I can say is that each American Constitutional Patriot must ask himself the question that Patrick Henry asked; “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?” I trust our answer will be “Forbid it, Almighty God. Give me liberty or give me death!” Open your eyes, listen to history, stand up before it’s too late, exhaust every peaceful means, but never give in to the promises of the self serving class and never sell your freedom for so called security, for history teaches us that you will end up with neither. If called upon to defend liberty, we true Americans of every ethnic makeup must be both ready, and willing to fight. May the Lord God have mercy of us so it does not come to that point. Live Free or Die!
