Target the Party as a whole rather than waste resources on numerous individual races – a party platform based approach
Appeal to the basic intelligence and goodness of the American people to reject the Democrats’ agenda of division, destruction, death and moral degradation
Appeal to the positive principles of life, liberty, justice, rule of law, personal virtue, etc.
Problem: Some Myths That Need Busting
Not all of these will be addressed in this presentation
Republicans are the party of Big Business and Big Money
Republicans are anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-science, anti-union, anti-worker and anti-social and economic justice
Republicans are the party of the status quo
“Limited government” is just a preference rather than the law
Democrats fight for the “Little Guy”
Democrats fight for justice
The Constitution empowers the government to solve all our problems and provide us with whatever goods and services we need or want
Problem: Some Public Education
That Needs to be Accomplished
There are real and important differences between the Republican and Democratic Parties
Many important votes in Congress and state legislatures fall along party lines with relatively few rebels from each camp – voting “scorecards” from advocacy/issue organizations clearly show this
The real power in legislatures is exercised in the committees, all of which are controlled by the majority party
A vote for any candidate is a vote to empower the agenda of that candidate’s party since the candidate’s seat counts toward the majority in the chamber and could change control of the committees
In spite of media derision, the battles over spending are deadly serious and not “shenanigans”
Problem: Republicans/Conservatives Keep Fighting on our Opponents’ Terms and Turf
Every attempt to address particular problems or fix particular programs that lacks Constitutional authority is conceding the legitimacy of the Democrats’ unlawful approach to government.
Approaching every so-called “issue” on the Democrats’ terms only makes Republicans look miserly, uncaring, cold-hearted, etc. We cannot out-Democrat the Democrats!
The leadership of the so-called “Democratic” Party consists of thieves, homicidal psychotics, liars and ideologically driven corrupters of our nation’s economic, social, political and educational systems, as well as of the very moral character of our people.
The characteristics of the so-called “Democratic” Party fit the description of an organized crime syndicate craving political power rather than riches. The “Democrats” are obsessed with CONTROL or, as Orwell put it, POWER.
Republicans need to TAKE THE GLOVES OFF!!!
The Democratic Party’s agenda is entirely inconsistent with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream and Vision of The Beloved Community. Their agenda abandons the principles of nonviolence, inclusiveness, justice and love of neighbor.
The Democrats’ agenda is abusive towards opponents, undermining goodwill and making reconciliation difficult
The Democrats’ agenda does violence to the rule of law, especially trampling Constitutional protections against government overreach
The Democrats’ agenda undermines the values, hopes and moral integrity of the American people
The Democrats’ agenda enables ongoing direct physical violence to the most innocent and helpless members of the human community
The Democrats’ agenda and messages are deadly to African-Americans and other components of the Party’s base
Importance of the Constitution
The Supreme Law of the Land (Article VI)
If you have ever worked for the government at any level, have ever been in the military or are a naturalized citizen, you have taken an oath in some form to support the Constitution of the United States as required in Article VI.
This oath does not expire.
Abiding by the provisions of the Constitution is essential to having rule of law
“Taxes, by their very nature, reduce a citizen’s freedom. Their proper role in a free society should be to fund services that are essential and authorized by the Constitution, such as national security, and the care of those who cannot care for themselves. We reject the use of taxation to redistribute income, fund unnecessary or ineffective programs, or foster the crony capitalism that corrupts both politicians and corporations.”
Many of the issues that divide us the most boil down to matters of responsibility and authority.
Republicans habitually say they believe in “limited” government
The phrase sounds like a mere preference to the average citizen who may want expanded government services and has been conditioned to believe this is a legitimate expectation for people to have of their government
A proposed better phrase that unmistakably gets to the point is “lawful” government
The Founders on Government
“Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
“Power always thinks... that it is doing God's service when it is violating all his laws.”
“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”
“A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”
“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
“The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.”
A Sad Reflection on Government
“But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.”
The American people continue to chafe under the morally and socially unacceptable consequences of this brazen act of judicial tyranny which is incompatible with everything this nation has ever stood for. This controversy is not going away, at least not until the so-called Democrats are largely removed from positions of power.
Some Key Provisions of the U.S. Constitution
Article I (legislative branch) Section 1. All legislative powers vested in Congress
No such powers to make laws are vested in the executive or judicial branches
Article I Section 8. Enumerated powers of Congress
The enumerated powers are very specific - only those thought to be necessary
for the central government to exercise – all else left to the states
Much of what the federal government does today is not lawful under the
Constitution’s list of enumerated powers, including healthcare, education,
welfare, transportation, energy, agriculture and much more
General Welfare – not carte blanche per the Tenth Amendment
Commerce clause – “…among the several States…” – interstate commerce only
Necessary and proper clause – redundant and unnecessary
Article III (judicial branch) Section 1. The judicial Power – not defined
Only the jurisdiction of the judiciary is defined in Section 2
Congress empowered to regulate the Supreme Court – Sec. 2 clause 2
Therefore, “Court stripping” is a legitimate power of Congress
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor
prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to
Enumerated Powers Under the Constitution
[I]t is to be remembered that the general government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any. The subordinate governments, which can extend their care to all those other subjects which can be separately provided for, will retain their due authority and activity.
Federalist No. 14
Clearly, Madison did not anticipate the usurpations that would result in the “general” government encroaching upon many of the powers of the “subordinate” governments (of the states).
The interstate (sic) “Commerce” clause (Art. I, §8, cl. 3)
Webster’s 1828 Dictionary says “commerce” is the buying and selling of goods. In Federalist No. 22 (4th para) and Federalist No. 42 (9th & 10th paras), Hamilton and Madison explain the primary purpose of the clause: To prohibit the States from imposing taxes & tolls on merchandize as it is transported through the States for purposes of buying and selling.
Three Clauses the Supreme Court Perverts to
Get Around the Enumerated Powers
(part 2 of 3)
By Publius Huldah
The “general Welfare” clause (Preamble & Art. I, §8, cl. 1)
Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines “welfare” as: “2. Exemption from any unusual evil or calamity; the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, or the ordinary blessings of society and civil government; applied to states.” It has nothing to do with handouts, public relief, or the feds doing whatever they think is a good idea. In Federalist No. 41 (last 4 paras), Madison points out that Art. I, § 8, employs “general terms” which are “immediately” followed by the “enumeration of particular powers” which “explain and qualify”, by a “recital of particulars”, the “general phrase”. It is “error” to focus on “general expressions” and disregard “the specifications which ascertain and limit their import”; thus, to argue that the general expression provides an unlimited power is “an absurdity”.
So yes! The powers of Congress over the Country at Large really are limited primarily to those few listed at Art. I, §8, clauses 3-16.
Our Framers understood that “general Welfare”, i.e., the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, and the enjoyment of the ordinary blessings of society and civil government, was possible
only with a federal government of strictly limited powers. [Let that sink in.]
Three Clauses the Supreme Court Perverts to
Get Around the Enumerated Powers
(part 3 of 3)
By Publius Huldah
The “necessary and proper” clause (Art. I, §8, last clause)
This clause delegates to Congress power to pass all laws necessary and proper to execute its declared powers (Federalist No. 29, 4th para); “the constitutional operation of the intended government would be precisely the same if [this clause] were entirely obliterated as if [it] were repeated in every article”; a power to do something must be a power to pass all laws necessary and proper for the execution of that power, and thus the clause is “perfectly harmless”, a “tautology or redundancy” (Federalist No. 33, 2nd & 3rd paras). Madison writes to the same effect in (Federalist No. 44, under his discussion of the SIXTH class of powers).
So the clause permits the execution of powers already delegated and enumerated in the Constitution. No additional substantive powers are granted by the clause.
Learn the enumerated powers delegated to Congress & to the President. With our Votes & Nullification of unconstitutional acts, let’s enforce the Constitution we already have. Don’t let others change or replace it! PH
“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and
indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. The operations of the federal government will be most extensive and important in times of war and danger; those of the State governments, in times of peace and security. As the former periods will probably bear a small proportion to the latter, the State governments will here enjoy another advantage over the federal government. The more adequate, indeed, the federal powers may be rendered to the national defense, the less frequent will be those scenes of danger which might favor their ascendancy over the governments of the particular States. If the new Constitution be examined with accuracy and candor, it will be found that the change which it proposes consists much less in the addition of NEW POWERS to the Union, than in the invigoration of its ORIGINAL POWERS. The regulation of commerce, it is true, is a new power; but that seems to be an addition which few oppose, and from which no apprehensions are entertained.“
Federalist No. 45
Established by the Supreme Court case of Marbury v. Madison in 1803.
The Court's decision was opposed by then President Thomas Jefferson, who lamented that this doctrine made the Constitution "a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please."
Jefferson couldn’t have guessed how right he would be proven with the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade.
“Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them. The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules by which the duties and rights of every citizen are to be regulated. The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm (emphasis mine) even for the efficacy of its judgments.”
“The courts must declare the sense of the law; and if they should be disposed to exercise WILL instead of JUDGMENT, the consequence would equally be the substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body.”
Federalist No. 78
The exercise of will by the courts has become routine and much desired by the Democrats to enact their agenda directly, free from the messy legislative process. They long ago accomplished their objective of Rule of Whim or “substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body.”
Largely under Democrat rule, Congress has habitually directed Executive branch agencies to write “rules” which carry the force of law, then execute the rules and adjudicate any disputes which may arise in their application. Aside from violating the principle of non-delegation, which was recognized by the ancient Greeks, this practice combines all three branches of government in the same hands and leaves citizens with little or no recourse.
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and
judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and
whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be
pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
Federalist No. 47
Does it trouble the Democrats that We the People are experiencing the creeping loss of our liberties due to the expansion of regulation by administrative law?
Some of Dr. King’s Concepts and Principles
The Triple Evils of POVERTY, RACISM and MILITARISM are forms of violence that exist in a vicious cycle. They are interrelated, all-inclusive, and stand as barriers to our living in the Beloved Community. When we work to remedy one evil, we affect all evils. To work against the Triple Evils, you must develop a nonviolent frame of mind as described in the “Six Principles of Nonviolence” and use the Kingian model for social action outlined in the “Six Steps for Nonviolent Social Change.”

This presentation will demonstrate that the Democratic Party’s agenda
- Promotes moral and spiritual poverty
- Is closely related to racism
- Pursues numerous policies that can be considered wars and have predictably destructive effects
Some Aspects of Dr. King’s Beloved Community
“…a realistic, achievable goal that could be attained by a critical mass of people committed to and trained in the philosophy and methods of nonviolence.”
“…a global vision, in which all people can share in the wealth of the earth. In the Beloved Community, poverty, hunger and homelessness will not be tolerated because international standards of human decency will not allow it. Racism and all forms of discrimination, bigotry and prejudice will be replaced by an all-inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood. In the Beloved Community, international disputes will be resolved by peaceful conflict-resolution and reconciliation of adversaries, instead of military power. Love and trust will triumph over fear and hatred. Peace with justice will prevail over war and military conflict.”
“…all conflicts in The Beloved Community should end with reconciliation of adversaries cooperating together in a spirit of friendship and goodwill.”

SIX PRINCIPLES OF NONVIOLENCE (part 1 of 2)
PRINCIPLE ONE: Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people.
It is active nonviolent resistance to evil.
It is aggressive spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
PRINCIPLE TWO: Nonviolence seeks to win friendship and understanding.
The end result of nonviolence is redemption and reconciliation.
The purpose of nonviolence is the creation of the Beloved Community.
