The Declaration of Independence! Our Lives, Our Fortunes, and Our Sacred Honor!

Quote of the Day


H.L. Mencken (born 1880 – died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat.  He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920, edition:

“As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people.  On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.”

~H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun,   July 26, 1920

Quote of the Day

“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.”

Josephine County Residents Explain Public Safety No Vote


Josephine County Residents Explain Public Safety No Vote

• Citizens don’t trust county government to spend wisely
• Tired of voting on property tax increases (6th time in 10 yrs)
• Reject Salem’s Josephine County only income tax increase

Josephine County residents speak their mind and send a message to Salem politicians considering forcing only them to pay additional income taxes.

SALEM-Oregon Capitol Watch Foundation’s Executive Director and former State Representative Jeff Kropf announced a media campaign today asking citizens for their opinion about politicians in Salem mandating a Josephine County only income tax increase for public safety. The campaign features Josephine County residents with Capitol Watch’s Petunia the Pork Detective in the background.

Oregon Capitol Watch is running coordinated TV, radio, newsprint, social media ads along with a grassroots campaign around Oregon in an effort to learn what citizens think about the unprecedented possibility of targeted citizens paying a higher income tax rate based on where they live. In a special two minute video report, Josephine County residents explain why they rejected a property tax increase for public safety for the 6th time in 10 years and what they think about being forced by politicians in Salem to pay higher income taxes than anyone else.

“Petunia and I decided it was time to journey to Josephine County to video on the street interviews with real people to understand why they voted no” said Kropf. “We also wanted to know their reaction to proposals in Salem to impose a special income tax increase only on them to fund their public safety”.

The two minute special TV report asks viewers to express their opinion on the OCWF website by voting on the following question: Should the Governor and the state intervene by forcing a public safety tax only on Josephine County?

“We really want to know what the people of Oregon think about Josephine County residents being forced to pay higher taxes for public safety by politicians in Salem” Kropf said. “That’s why we are asking people to watch the video report, go to our website and vote or comment on this issue”.

The two minute video report is running on KOBI TV NBC 5 in Medford and Grants Pass during the evening news at 5, 6 and 11 on June 20, 21 and 25, along with radio, print and social media ads urging citizens to watch the TV broadcast on KOBI, then vote on the OCWF website. A grassroots email campaign begins at the same time to reach out to those who may not see or hear the broadcasts or print ads.

Oregon Capitol Watch will publish the vote results and comments within a few days after the campaign ends.

All on the street interviews in this video report were conducted in Merlin, Cave Junction and Grants Pass in early June, with most interviewees randomly selected in public places.

The two minute video report can be viewed at as well as the opportunity to vote and comment.

Oregon Capitol Watch Foundation is a non profit, tax deductible educational foundation dedicated to educating citizens about how government spends their tax dollars and offering common sense ideas for improved government efficiency.

“Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”

National Popular Vote

Our Framers never intended for the President to be elected by popular vote. While they recognize in Our Declaration of Independence (2nd para) that The People are the source of political authority, 6 they knew that all history demonstrates that The People lack the knowledge, wisdom and judgment to make wise choices when voting for politicians.

In Federalist No. 64 (3rd & 4th paras), 7 John Jay recognizes that People are ignorant and easily manipulated by small groups who take advantage of their “hopes and fears”, to steer them towards candidates favored by the small groups.

Accordingly, the Electors would be “select assemblies” “composed of the most enlightened and respectable citizens” who would vote for those men who were “the most distinguished by their abilities and virtue”. Furthermore, Electors would not likely “be deceived by those brilliant appearances of genius and patriotism” which “sometimes mislead as well as dazzle”.

How The National Popular Vote Will Work.

Here is the nefarious 888-word interstate compact. It is written in the bureaucratic style favored by those who seek to confuse, confound and conceal. Their Explanation of National Popular Vote Bill expressly discloses, however, that

Under the National Popular Vote bill, all of the state’s electoral votes would be awarded to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

In other words, if the popular vote in Virginia is for James Madison, but the total national popular vote favors Adolf Hitler, then all of Virginia’s 13 Electoral Votes are given to Adolf Hitler.

Indeed, the winner of the national popular vote will end up with all the electoral votes for every State.  Do you see?  And do not think that the winner will fail to claim a “Mandate” for whatever he wants to do.

The States Can’t lawfully Enter Into A Compact Which Violates The U.S. Constitution!

1. Every aspect of the NPV violates Art. II, Sec. 1, cl. 2 and the 12th Amendment.  So it’s altogether unconstitutional. Compare the detailed procedures set forth in Our Constitution with the proposed NPV!  It sets up a method of electing the President and vice-President which is altogether repugnant to what Our Constitution requires.

2. Article V sets forth the exclusive methods of amending the Constitution. “Compact among the States” is not one of the authorized methods of amending the Constitution. So the NPV Compact also violates Article V.

3. Furthermore, Article I, Sec. 10, last clause, prohibits States from “enter[ing] into any Agreement or Compact with another State” “without the Consent of Congress”.  So, whether the NPV Compact also violates Art. I, Sec. 10, last clause, depends on whether Congress consents to it. But Congress may not lawfully consent to unconstitutional compacts of the States!

Under The National Popular Vote Scheme, Votes From Major Metropolitan Areas Will Decide Presidential Elections.

Most of the Population of these United States is located in a few major metropolitan areas. Under the NPV scheme, these major metropolitan areas would decide the elections for President!

Please look at this 3D map showing how these major metropolitan areas actually voted in the last presidential election:

They all voted for Obama.

The NPV is not about “making every vote count”. The NPV is about guaranteeing that every future presidential election is won by a Democrat.

Who Is Behind This Plot To Impose The National Popular Vote?

The organizations who have endorsed the NPV include four organizations (Common Cause, NAACP, Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, and Public Citizen) which, according to this website, have received funding from George Soros and his Open Society Institute.

I’ve Crossed The Rubicon, Will You?

It is no longer acceptable to sit and remain silent, nor accept excuses about lies. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard “politicians just lie, that’s what they do”. When did we as a people accept that it is ok to be lied to? To be used? To be attacked, by those that we have placed into office under the promise they would protect our freedoms? All the while these politicians are destroying those freedoms they were sent there to protect. Ultimately, while we are attacking each other, the “elite” are attacking us. They are destroying our freedoms, stealing our money, killing our people, dismantling our Constitution and Bill of Rights. They are laughing all the way to the bank! Because of our failure to identify the real enemy, and understanding the importance of working together to stop this attack on all Americans, they have almost successfully destroyed this entire country.

Make no mistake while we are arguing, and trying to focus the blame on this administration, or that administration they are destroying our God given freedoms. No, I am not just talking about the 2nd Amendment. I am talking about all of them.

Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Religion, Right to bear arms, Right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, Speedy and Public trial etc…

Are You Proud To Be An American?

First, let’s clarify. I’m proud of our heritage and true Americans. The satanic slime bag elitists and politicians that have destroyed this country are not what make a true American. A true American is all sizes, colors, and shapes, many religions, generous to a fault, open arms for those less fortunate, a melting pot of all peoples who come together in one American culture, hardworking, believing in the American dream, and the freedoms in our country’s founding documents, and knowing you live in the greatest country in the world, founded by Godly men. Real America is this and more and is what true Americans are proud to be. A better question to have asked would be, “Are you proud of our American government today?”

Agenda 21: John Kerry & Nancy Pelosi & 21 Years Ago

If you gain nothing else from this information, please realize that both parties are responsible for directing our nation’s laws and regulations to comply with the United Nations’ Agenda 21 Doctrine. No treaty was signed.  The American people were not told.  The media did not announce any of this.  To this day, the media, for all intents and purposes, mocks those of us who expose this and denies there is any such thing as Agenda 21 within the United States of America.

Stand Up Now or Be Strapped Down Later

Written by Bradlee Dean
April 18,2013


Vladimir Lenin, first Leader of the Soviet Union, said,

“We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”

Sound familiar?

We see it in trickles now, but left unchecked by the silent majority who sit back and do nothing . . . what will be the fate of your America? History tends to repeat itself unless we stand up and do something to stop it. Knowing what you stand for limits what you fall for.

Quote of the Day

“To those who cite the First Amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions and every-day life, may I just say: The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.”

~ Ronald Reagan

Congress’ Enumerated Powers

Continue educating yourself by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post.

1. With the U.S. Constitution, We The People created the federal government. It is our “creature”, and has no powers other than those We delegated to it in Our Constitution.

If you, dear Reader, will study this paper and read the Constitution, you will know more about it than most State & federal judges, most law professors & lawyers, those who spout off on TV & radio, just about anybody in Congress, and the self-educated who fixate on their own idiotic theories. And you will certainly know more than anyone currently occupying any office in the executive branch of the federal government.

WE delegated to Congress the following Enumerated Powers over the Country at Large:
Congress may not lawfully exercise ANY other powers!

5. Thus, Congress has NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to bail out financial institutions, businesses, and homeowners who don’t pay their mortgages; NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to take control of our health care; NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to pass laws denying secret ballots to employees who are solicited for membership by labor unions; NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to take away your IRA’s and other retirement accounts, NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to take your guns, NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to pass laws respecting energy consumption or “emissions”, education, housing, etc., etc., etc.

Therefore, all laws which Congress has made on such topics are unconstitutional as outside the scope of the legislative powers WE delegated to Congress in OUR Constitution. WE THE PEOPLE did not give such powers to Congress when we ordained and established the Constitution, created the Congress, and listed its 22 enumerated powers over the Country at large. And WE did not delegate those powers to Congress in any of the Amendments.

6. You ask, “How can Congress make all these laws if they are unconstitutional?

Congress gets away with it because WE are ignorant of what our Constitution says; and We have been indoctrinated into believing that Congress can do whatever they want!

13. In all its recent legislation, Congress ratchets up its concerted pattern of lawless usurpations. The executive branch and the federal courts approve it. Such is the essence of tyranny. They are “ruling” without our consent, and hence the federal government is now illegitimate.
