THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

                         THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

       On July 4, 1776, the People declared:
                                                                    "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that 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 to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, 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 Foundations on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
    The People then established a Constitution and further declared:
                                                                                                            "WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this CONSTITUTION for the United States of America."
    Through the Constitution the People delegated and divided their Sovereignty between the States and the Legislative, Executive and Judicial Branches of the Federal Government. Later the Bill of Rights were added to prevent Government infringement of the Freedom, Rights and Liberties of the People. But the People did not keep a constant Eye on the Government and did not hold the Government accountable to the Constitution. The Government steadily took Power from the People and then started taking away Freedom, Rights and Liberties.
    After the 9-11 terrorist attacks, the Government infringed and took Freedom. Liberties and Rights away from the People for stated Security interest.
    The Government's foreign policy puts the People at even more risk of terrorism. The Government's
economic policy ships the jobs to foreign countries. The Government serves the interest of Wall Street, Banks, Investors, Big Business and the Wealthy. The People are relegated to garbage to be scooped around by the Government. Environmental policy wipes out jobs for the People and raises the cost of Energy. The Rich are getting Richer as the sinking Middle Class goes farther into debt. Poor People cannot find jobs or housing. Same Sex Marriage is now a Right, but Poor People go to Prison for drugs. The United States has more People in Prison than any other country in the world.
Twenty Five 25% of the world's prison population is in the United States, but illegal immigrants have
Executive Immunity from prosecution.
     With the latest terrorism in California the Government prepares to further invade and restrict the Rights and Freedom of the People. The Government wants to take the Guns away from the People under the idea that certain People do not have Second Amendment Rights. The Government has become the Enemy of the People.
    The Declaration of Independence indicates what must be done when the Government becomes the Enemy of the People. The People sought to form a "more perfect Union." But there is more division among the People than ever. The People are divided Race against Race, Religion against People, Rich against Poor.
    WE THE PEOPLE must stop fighting with each other. United We Stand - Divided We Fall. Stand up for Freedom. Stand up for Liberty. Stand up for the pursuit of Happiness and Stand up for Equality.
    Do not Fear the Enemy.
