America and Natural Law
he Declaration of Independence presupposes natural law: “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.” The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. held America’s feet to the fires of its natural law-based legal documents: The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. In his “I Have a Dream” speech, Dr. King told Americans that: “When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’”
America is in crisis. Having rejected natural law in favor of posiitive law alone (i.e., the decrees of the legislature and the judiciary divorced from natural law standards, which positive law is supposed to live-up to) our nation is now floundering upon the (Nietzchean) seas of the will to power, seas wherein greed and power trumps compassion and justice. War, fear, torture, oppression, colonial occupation.These are but a few of the issues we face. There are three (3) top priorities which the American People must take responsibility to correct if our nation is to become what it is supposed to be: a just and compassionate nation. And if the American People abdicate their responsibity to rise up and put an end to the injustices we perceive, America—as we know it—will cease to exist:
- End the wars, end the torture, end the eavesdropping, and end the colonial occupations.
- End—completely— America’s suport of Israel.
- Begin a restoration of America’s founding legal and philosophical basis for creating a just society: natural law.
Since the early 1960’s, America’s military-industrial-intelligence complex has thwarted all efforts to create a more just society; prefering instead to assert a naked and brutal will to power. The assassinations of leaders who sought peace and social justice (JFK, MLK, and RFK) were planned and executed by America’s military-industrial-intelligence complex; and its current reign of terror, which has been in place since 9/11, has intimidated the American People into submission to the forces of this corrupt and murderous power elite. Like the assassinations of our nation’s greatest leaders, the military-industrial-intelligence complex also planned and executed the terror attacks of 9/11 in order to insure the American People’s submission to this corrupt and murderous power elitie. We, the People, cannot allow this situation to continue. It is time for the People to rise up, take to the streets of Washington, and demand an end to wars and oppression in order to restore our great nation to it’s founding principles and ideals: that all people are created equal; therefore all people are entitled to dignity and respect. Unlike other nations, America depends upon the participation of the People. Today, considering the corruption in our government and the crisis we face, the American People must participate—not in the broken, corrupt system of elections—but in mass protests in Washington in order to drive from power those who would oppress and intimidate us with their tactics of fear and intimidation. America will stand or fall depending upon what we the People decide to do. Make no mistake, on our present course, designed by the military-industrial-intelligence complex, America is headed for a well deserved, but avoidable, if we restore our great nation, destruction at the hands of our enemies. The time has come to turn our nation toward its only true purpose for its people: freedom, liberty and justice. It is time to cast off the tyranny of oppression, which the military-industrial-intelligence complex has impossed—for nearly fifty years—upon the American People. Let us no longer follow the fearmongers and the warmongers, who would frighten us into submission, but let us rather rise up and cast off our oppressors; taking our cues from those true leaders who gave their lives for peace and for justice. Let us not allow their supreme sacrifices to have been made in vain. Rise up! Cast off your chains of oppression! Allow the light of peace and justice to reign in your hearts, in our nation, and spread to our brothers and sisters of every race, creed, and nationality around the world. Let us work together to make America what it is supposed to be: a city upon a hill that cannot be hid, shining the light of liberty, freedom, and justice for all the world to see. If we fail in our duty to do so, I can assure you that the darkness of tyranny, oppression, and injustice will plunge this nation into an ever deeper abyss of selfisheness, greed and exploitation, the likes of which the world has never seen. People of America unite in the name of liberty, freedom, and justice for all!
Only YOU can Restore America!

America in Crisis
There’s something terribly wrong with our nation: wars, torture, eavesdropping; and if you want to know who to blame you need only look in a mirror. It’s up to the American People to change—to restore—America to greatness. Although our political leaders talk about liberty and freedom, which America stands for, they are—at the same time—infringing upon those very liberties and freedoms of which they speak. The events of 9/11 have been used for preemptive wars, torture, and eavesdropping; three things that America does not stand for—the very antitheses of liberty and freedom.
Will the American People sit by and do nothing? Or will they rise up and let their voices be heard? The political system in America is broken, beyond all normal means of repair. The next election, like the last, will change nothing. The only hope America has is that we, the People, will take a stand for liberty and freedom. The American People must take to the streets in order to force those in power to abandon their positions of power, which they use to run roughshod over the rights of the American People and to run roughshod over the peoples of the world at large.
It’s time for the People of America to take our nation back: for the People! If truth and justice have any meaning to you; if you recognize the lies and injustices of on-going wars of empire; then please become informed, get involved, and begin working to restore America.
