A few years ago, I was bothered by the term, wanted to correct others if they introduced me as a
- 'Ultra' Conservative
I know they meant it as a compliment but my left handed, analytical critical thinking mind, kept asking,
"what am I conserving?...."
The founding fathers would NOT of been considered themselves conservatitives. That would of meant that they wanted to conserve the current ways of the time, the Kings ways. No, they definitely would of not been considered conservative. They wanted liberty from the king, they could of been called libertarians, perhaps different a little different than the definition of today, but not much.
They could of been called Constitutionalists EXCEPT they hadn't wrote it yet!
They were revolutionaries, rebellious, rebels, treasonous (according to the ruling authority). Had they lost the struggle they would of been killed by the king's men in prison or in gallows. Bad guys, criminals, murders.
No I don't consider myself a conservative, because I wouldn't have any idea what I am trying to conserve? I mean, what is left of the constitution?
- Conserve the court 'interpetations' of the constitution, a document that needs no interpetation, (the bought and paid for courts that found Obamacare lurking somewhere in the constitution) ?
- Conserve the latest session of congressional constitutionally-ignoring, constitutional violating, color of law ways?
- Conserve the last public record filing of Federal Agency regulations, that support treasnous UN Agenda 21, that pretends the constitution is just a peice of paper?
You could call me a tea party 'ist' except that the 'no receipt, no hanging chad electronic voter fraud machines are untrustworthy', not from the manufacturer from those that (are allowed) to hack in. So I don't want to associate with a system that insults my intelligence, voter fraud...its not just for dead people anymore. Electronic is efficient, effective, full spectrum dominant, 'candidate' control for key positions. Soon I suspect even the dog catcher postion will be rigged. Don't get me wrong the tea party concept is good, the election is rigged, so what is the point?
I don't consider myself a libertarian because as a political party, it isnt' taken seriously (of course yo would have to trust the electrion process of key positions for that to matter much). The platform has its flaws when it meets the real world. However many of their believes I agree with, for instance the basic concept of liberty. That is a founding principle.
This noun is so abused I bearly like being associated with it. Pagans and heathens call themselves Christians just becasue they are born in America or were baptized as an infant. Treat God, Jesus like a sucker. I am saved by faith unto the lord Jesus the Christ (Savior) but my regular disgust for mankind, hardly allows me the privilege of being associated as a true follower, though I still strive, I get in the way all the time.
The highest law in the land, the one that grants the president and the SUPREME Court its authority, an oath that all politicians swear to uphold. Chock full of principles that can be believed in and lived by...the Constitution. It doesn't conflict with Christianty and it facilitated God's great commission to be fullfilled - to the corners of the earth. But each dot and tiddle in the constitution has be 'interpreted' away, till now it is barely just an old piece of paper. (You can have all of the 'rights' you want, just don't exercise them). I swore an oath to uphold and defend it, against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. Looks like the enemy is within...a secret government in opposition to the constitution. Working day and night to control, rob, exploit and kill the citizenry, in violation of God's law and the highest law of the land, not the president not the supreme court but the constitution.
Yes, I am honored to be called a Constitutionalist (FYI DHS has many documents training local police that if you mention the constitution, when they are violating it...YOU are a terrorist! So I guess I am both a Constitutionalist and a Terrorist (a word that has no real meaning anymore but call me one just the same).
