“The judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working underground to undermine our Constitution from a co-ordinate of a general and special government to a general supreme one alone. This will lay all things at their feet. … I will say, that “against this every man should raise his voice,” and, more, should uplift his arm …” —Letter to Thomas Ritchie, Sept. 1820
Jefferson always had a way with words.
It's true the judiciary has greatly become what he described. But just as we are supposed to have checks and balances, the corrupt system has its own inverse method of making sure it stays corrupt. They simply rubber stamp one another.
So we pull them apart and continue exposing them. Easier said than done so let's do it.
While we do, let's not allow ourselves to be sapped and mined.
I've been talking about how this is all planned, Alinsky tactics and everything multitiered.
It's the battle within we need to tend.
All of this collectivist opposition works way below the surface to feed self doubt, foster fear, make us bitter, to give up.
I've been betrayed, been swindled (aka screwed out of inheritance), had former friends turn their backs and leaders try to lead me down the primrose leftist path. I've weathered this and all the self doubts and fears with that precise goal. Maybe some were not actively working to derail me, but they sure tried by their actions.
I have indeed had moments of faltering, almost giving up. But I did not. Have I become stronger as a result? Absolutely. In the dark night of the soul, it's a two way street. Selfexamination has lended itself to not just surviving but triumphing over enemies and obstacles.
Think of having a bad flu. You are ravaged with infection, fever. Through it all, you focus on getting well. And when you do, you build immunity to that which threatened you.
So it is with the 'red death'. Build your reserves. In martial arts it is storing 'chi', energy.
Know you are not alone, no matter who deserts you. And we can make our own way. THAT is the way of our Constitutional Republic.
It is greater than ourselves, yet it is each of us that makes it work!
E Pluribus Unum bests the sappers and miners every time.
