Inverting The Constitution Goes Unpunished, Again and Again and Again

From the Woodpile Report (read it all)

Remember the promises made after Hurricane Katrina that citizens would never again be subject to gun restrictions and confiscations during such emergencies? Bad news. They lied. On Wednesday, September 1st, North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue signed an Executive Order declaring a State of Emergency in anticipation of Hurricane Earle. In doing so, she suspended the right of state residents to use or carry firearms outside their premises. And yes, violater's guns would be confiscated.

Notice she did not protect and defend the rights of the citizenry as is her sworn duty. No surprise, Governor Perdue is a socialist activist—master's degree in education, doctoral in education administration, it's all there in the record. She won the Governorship in a squeaker when Obama delivered the crucial voters. Since then she's had an approval rating in the low 30s but governs as if she had a mandate from Mao.

That the Governor was not forced to step aside pending immediate impeachment and conviction says what needs saying. That she holds office in the first place says even more. This walking pile and her errand boys in the legislature are all the proof a person should need that voting doesn't work, not for the citizenry. If voting worked it would have worked by now.
No consequences for actions repugnant to the Constitution.
Until tyrants are held accountable, expect more and more of the same.

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission.

- Frank Zappa
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
-Winston Churchill
Will America remember it's heritage and stand up? Or succumb with only a whimper?
That the Governor was not forced to step aside pending immediate impeachment and conviction says what needs saying.

If I may offer two comments / thoughts...

First, remember that, as reorted on the Restore the Constitution site, a number of the state's sovereign citizens publicly proclaimed their disobedience and proceeded to carry their firearms as usual. No one challenged them.
Now - if they HAD been challenged, what would have happened? Hard to say. Which brings me to my second comment.
If you have ten minutes to spare, OR if you can visit two links and download the text or whatever, PLEASE read the two connected articles from Mr. Kerodin. The links are below.
IF we want to stop the pretending and the movie/dream/fantasy scenes in our minds, and if we can mn-up for real life situations, then please ponder deeply the words and decide now - before you are herded onto the boxcars - decide NOW what your actions wil be.

I turned in a aplication today with the National Parks sevice for a RTC Rally @ Palo Alto National Battle Ground Park just to the North of Brownsville.TX.
The suepervisor seamed as though he was favorable to the idea of holding a rally there but he had to look at some logistical problems he had because of work that is scegualed to be performed around that date 10-30-10. I will keep everyone posted as to the outcome of the Permit as soon as I hear myself.

This is a REPUBLIC. Is it not? The Rule of Law Applies to The Government even MORE so than any individual. Because the Rule of Law (COTUS) makes That Government Legitimate or Not.

So is it that The Constitution has Failed the People of the United States or is it maybe that We The People have Failed the Constitution.

It was Benjamin Franklin that said upon exiting the Continental Convention when asked by a Lady outside the convention as to what they had given us he replied,

¨A Republic,Madam If You Can Keep it.¨

It was with These Words that whose Duty it was to Protect What are Defined. If we and our forefathers before us have not Fought for their Rights and Liberty as described in the Constitution then I ask You Who or What has Failed to Protect the Other.
