How the oligarchy will die
By Donald Hank
January 4, 2016

The concept of "case law" as the determinant of the judicial fate and future of our country is not constitutional. The Constitution does not mention this principle, which unjustly transfers the power from We the People to the elites and oligarchs.

Further, the perverted definition of "marriage" in the sense of a union between two people of the same sex has been unduly enshrined in law. As a matter of fact, language and the definition of words is not within the purview of legal authorities. ONLY the people – you and I – can determine the usage and definition of words. It is utterly erroneous to claim that a same sex couple has the right to marry, simply because marriage as defined by the People over centuries is a legal condition that applies only to couples of the opposite sex. Thus the real issue is not rights or even religion, but language.

Judges and legislators have no jurisdiction over language usage. YOU, as the people, are the sole keepers of language. You have it in your power to hold to the original definition of the word marriage. Any American who uses the word "marriage" in the sense of a same sex union is not only abusing language they are also giving undue power to the oligarchs who have been usurping our power and our Constitution.

It is not their Constitution to manipulate. It is ours to preserve.

There is a principle at work in America that the oligarchs have not noticed but they will eventually notice it as long as they continue to push us aside in their own interests.

This principle can be illustrated by an example:

A few years before the collapse of the Soviet Union, a poll was taken among East Germans and 40% were found to agree with socialism. But shortly before the fall of the Berlin wall, a fresh poll found that only 10% agreed with socialism.

What does this illustrate?

It illustrates that the farther the ruling elites drift philosophically from their constituent base, ie, the people, and the more power they grab, the less authority they have.

There is an inverse relationship between power and authority when the authority is usurped and not granted by the people.

Why did the Soviet Union and the Berlin wall fall?

Because the ruling class had overreached for power and lost their authority.

The system fell spontaneously. The people did not consciously wrest power from the elites in a violent revolution. No, the power slipped away from the elites because they ignored the principle outlined above: Their power was not commensurate with their legitimate authority to rule the East German people and myriad events and trends were observed – black market, inability to enforce senseless laws, etc – that made it impossible for the communists to maintain their power.

The "Trump phenomenon" is following this very same principle. America does not need us to go out in the streets and march or fire on the authorities. It only needs time. The elites will do themselves in in the US just as they did in the East Bloc and Russia.

The collapse is happening before our eyes. And it doesn't matter if Trump wins or not. He already blew the lid off the lies and the msm can't fix this.
