Edumication


And the idiot gawddamned rubes cheer.

Only…

We are founded as a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy.

Democracy (mob rule) voids our Republic (rule by/of law) which voids our Constitution that houses our Bill of Rights (individual liberties) and individual liberties do not and can not exist in a mob rule.  If the mob votes that you can’t own a firearm for protection, you ain’t ownin’ a firearm for protection. That’s democracy!

In our Constitutional Republic, Constitutionally protected individual liberties say: Fuck Mob Rule!

An Important Distinction: Democracy versus Republic

Any American touting democracy (naturally democrats will), is an enemy to our Republic.

Can’t a fellow just go out on a 20 degree night and “enjoy” his daughter’s soccer game without two branches of the government losing their minds?  As the introduction message to this site states, we are neither cheerleaders for nor knee-jerk opponents of the President.  We are conservatives.  Likewise, we take remarkably seriously the rulings of our federal judiciary.  I know I do, I am a lawyer, former law professor, and a former assistant law school Dean.

When I appear in media, it is often as an expert associated with legal issues.  To be sure, I don’t hold myself out as the leading guru on federal jurisdiction.  I do, however, fully understand that area of law, having learned it, practiced it, taught it, and indeed commented on it.

An Important Distinction: Democracy versus Republic

Granted, we’ve not been governed as a Constitutional Republic for at least the last 150 years…

As our Republic dies so goes our Constitution “individual liberties” because, individual liberties do not and can not exist in a democracy (mob rule).   Of course all democrats (democrat is derived from democracy) are antithetical to our Republic. Anyone  touting “democracy” in our Republic (that includes Donald Trump and his surrogates), is either ignorant of our Founding form of government, or, an usurper.

You rubes better pay attention.

Over the past half century, the Reagan years notwithstanding, our ruling class’s changing preferences and habits have transformed public and private life in America. As John Marini shows in his essay, “Donald Trump and the American Crisis,” this has resulted in citizens morphing into either this class’s “stakeholders” or its subjects. And, as Publius Decius Mus argues, “America and the West” now are so firmly “on a trajectory toward something very bad” that it is no longer reasonable to hope that “all human outcomes are still possible,” by which he means restoration of the public and private practices that made the American republic. In fact, the 2016 election is sealing the United States’s transition from that republic to some kind of empire.

Electing either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump cannot change that trajectory. Because each candidate represents constituencies hostile to republicanism, each in its own way, these individuals are not what this election is about. This election is about whether the Democratic Party, the ruling class’s enforcer, will impose its tastes more strongly and arbitrarily than ever, or whether constituencies opposed to that rule will get some ill-defined chance to strike back. Regardless of the election’s outcome, the republic established by America’s Founders is probably gone. But since the Democratic Party’s constituencies differ radically from their opponents’, and since the character of imperial governance depends inherently on the emperor, the election’s result will make a big difference in our lives.

Excerpt:

What’s grossly ironic is the specter of people using white computers hooked up to white electricity sent across white power grids to criticize the very white people who made their whining possible. Even worse is the ubiquity of white people pejoratively using the word “white people” as if it somehow doesn’t apply to them. That right there is a collective mental illness for the ages.

White technology has doubled lifespans across the globe and yanked several human subgroups out of the Stone Age. This makes certain white people feel guilty. It also apparently makes lots of nonwhite people resentful.

The currently approved conceptual framework for American race relations dictates that whites—all of them, simply by dint of being white—are oppressors. Any deviation from this rigid script, no matter how deeply rooted in fact, must be immediately annihilated like a blood-engorged tick.
