Political philosophers and their malcontents...

Believe it or not they are trying to help you.

Some knew who the malcontents of the American Republic would tend to be.

"To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy."
(Letter from Thomas Jefferson to William Charles Jarvis (Sept. 28,
1820) in 15 The Writings of Thomas Jefferson 276, 277
(Andrew A. Lipscomb & Albert Ellery Bergh eds., 1904).)

Yet later the oligarchy responds while crafting one of its various diktats:

"Like the character of an individual, the legitimacy of the Court must be earned over time. So, indeed, must be the character of a Nation of people who aspire to live according to the rule of law. Their belief in themselves as such a people is not readily separable from their understanding of the Court INVESTED WITH THE AUTHORITY TO DECIDE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL CASES AND SPEAK BEFORE ALL OTHERS FOR THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL IDEALS."
112 S. Ct. 2816 (1992) (emphasis added)
Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey

They will make all your discriminations for you. They will tell you what your ideals are. It is not as if the political philosohers wrote ideals down in text. No, instead the deconstructionist/fascist will tell you what your ideals are.

Political philosophers reply:
"[I]f the policy of the government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court . . . the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having to that extent practically resigned their Government into the hands
of that eminent tribunal."
Abraham Lincoln, First Inaugural Address (Mar. 4, 1861),
1789 TO GEORGE BUSH 1989, S. DOC. No.
10, 101st Cong., 1st Sess. 133, 139 (1989)

"I had rather ask an enlargement of power from the nation, where it is found necessary, than to assume it by a construction which would make our powers boundless. Our peculiar security is in possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction . . . . I confess, then, I think it important, in the present case, . . . to set an example against broad construction by appealing for new power to the people."
(Letter from Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Cary Nicholas
(Sept. 7, 1803), in 8 THE WRITINGS OF THOMAS
JEFFERSON 247-28 (Paul L. Ford ed., 1897).

Trace back what limits judicial subpagans and the new pseudo-scientists. This is what they will then want to use whatever power they have to attack. The "experts" who make their alliance with the judges have more power than you may think. Their power and their alliance with the State for money increases apace.

It is the Author of the text who writes upon Nature that makes Right unalienable. That is what limits them. That is what sets them off into fearmongering. It is because it means that mere humans cannot change some things. Instead, they must conform to a pattern of self evident truths evident in the Self, a Right that is alien to them. Yes, when something is written by a trans-physical Alien that means that mere humans cannot just change things on a whim. They have tried for centuries to do so but there is always some new disease striking them down as they do. Yet now when humans speak of their "rights" they mean whatever they feel is right, right at that moment. Their "rights" are their very own whims, caught in time.

The Creator makes the Right unalienable, for all times:
"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."
Thomas Jefferson,
In his Notes on the State of Virginia

"The belief in God all powerful wise and good, is so essential to the moral order of the world and to the happiness of man, that arguments which enforce it cannot be drawn from too many sources nor adapted with too much solicitude to the different characters and capacities to be impressed with it." --James Madison

"Republican government presupposes the existence of [virtue] in a higher degree than any other form. Were [people as depraved as some opponents of the Constitution say they
are,] the inference would be that there is not sufficient virtue among men for self-government; and that nothing less than the chains of despotism can restrain them from destroying and devouring one another."
(Clinton Rossiter and Charles Kesler
eds., Mentor 1999).

The political philosophers view of subversion, perversion of Natural Law:

"Have you ever found in history, one single example of a Nation thoroughly corrupted that was afterwards restored to virtue? ....And without virtue, there can be no political liberty....

Will you tell me how to prevent luxury from producing effeminacy, intoxication, extravagance, vice and folly? .....I believe no effort in favor of virtue is lost."
--John Adams

"A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when they lose their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader..... If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security." --Samuel Adams

Virtue, and where the Conscience of any nation ultimately is, its religion. Its thought. Its pattern of beliefs.
"Within a year of his inauguration, Jefferson began attending church services in the House of Representatives [note: he started attending 2 days after writing the famous 'Danbury Letter
which contains the phrase concerning separation of Church and State']. Madison followed Jefferson's example...."

"The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its citizens, and command the respect of the world." --George Washington

Republicanism and faith:
"Familiarity with that great story of redemption, when God raised up the slave-born Moses to deliver His chosen people from bondage, and with that sublimer story where our Saviour died a cruel death that all men, without distinction of race, might be saved, makes slavery impossible.
Because Christians are in the minority there is no reason for renouncing Christianity, or for surrendering to the false religions...."
--Charles Sumner, staunch abolitionist
and one of the founders of the Republican Party

In contrast, John Kerry believes that faith is irrelevant.
