Republic lost? Harvard Law Professor Lessig explains:

Who truly decides who the President, or Senator, or Congressional Representative will be?   Those who vote, or, those who determine who the voters will be allowed to vote for?

How would “one” pre-determine the outcome of an election?  

Determine who votes, or,

determine who the voters will choose from?

In 2012, how many “individuals” decided WHO would be a candidate in the Federal November election?

0.000042 % of the American population,

 159 “individuals”

gave 60% of the super pac money that was spent in the 2012 elections.

Harvard law Professor Lawrence Lessig explains the United States Federal election process and system:

How do they act as members of Congress, and as a consequence, what they are.

Professor Lessig presented the following: Published on Jan 29, 2013
Session 4 of the conference, Is America Governable? University of Texas School of Law, Jan.25, 2013. Speaker: Larry Lessig.

Is the Republic still in Danger of being lost?

The relative funders get to vote.

To be allowed to run in the general election, you must do extremely well in the election that decides WHO runs. (Who the general populace gets to pick from.)

Reform that angers the funders, is likely to be highly unlikely.

Merriam Webster online defines Oligarchy:

oligarchy
noun ol·i·gar·chy \ˈä-lə-ˌgär-kē, ˈō-\
: a country, business, etc., that is controlled by a small group of people

: the people that control a country, business, etc.

: government or control by a small group of people

Congress, and the President, have a developed dependence on the “funders” of the election process.  This didn’t happened by mere accident.  Remember, how do you determine if words are a true or false?  Examine actions and results and outcomes.  Just as Professor Lessig explains in his presentation.

The Supreme Court has determined this “election process” does not violate the Constitution.  An extremely small group with complete control has been forever  institutionalized as “Constitutional”.

When you realize, see, accept, and understand reality;

Then, the decisions of the Supreme Court which are contrary to our Constitution adopted in 1789, are foreseeable.  One merely has to understand who those in power are dependent upon.

“The Supreme Court has gone completely insane in its thinking about equality in the context of election law.”   Professor Lessig

Does anyone truly believe those in power will voluntarily return Constitutional governance to the American People?

From the 2012 election, those 159 individuals and their “friends” will never admit their power nor return their “stolen power” and Constitutional rule of law to “the People” voluntarily.

NEVER.

They secretly STOLE their power.  They will not admit what has happened nor freely allow the Constitution to be re-implemented.

The “funders” control almost all who legislate, execute, and interpret American federal law.

No “legal” change will come from the Federal Government election process because the election process is rigged from the beginning for a pre-determined result.

The only possible peaceful and legal way to correct Federal illegality is a  Constitutional Article V convention of States.

  1. I think we are beyond a “Peaceful” correction.
    For the simple reason that the entire Federal government is at this time lawless. They operate Completely without regard to ANY real law. Legal is what they choose from day to day, which is by definition operating without law.

    The Article V Convention of States IS the route……but only the route AFTER what will have to be massive Civil Disobedience on the Local and State level. Mark Levin spelled it out today with respect to the “disparate intention impact” ruling by the SCOTUS and the extra-Congressional DataBase created to implement, by force and legal threat, the AFFH ( Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing “rule”. Basically forcefully Putting section 8 housing into predominantly Conservative Suburban neighborhoods throughout America ( New Port Beach, RI and the like exempted of course).

    Push Back needs to happen first.

    Local Push Back in that Local gov’t, City Councils, school boards will have to just Flat out say NO. When the Feds come for Info etc….the answer will have to just be NO. And let the court cases start adding up. Local communities throughout the Country will have to join. And thence to Counties and thence on the State level, saying NO about ALL Federal “requests”.

    Basically a PUSH BACK and a return to Federalism.
    And this will NOT be done without some pain…… even perhaps just financial pain. But people will wake up to the fact that the money withheld by the Feds and the Political “Elite” is OUR own Tax money sent to Washington in the first place !

    After Push back of this nature it will become clear that the entire system is broken and un Constitutional. A solution will be searched for and the Article V will be understandable to many more as a way back to restoration of the Republic. But it won’t work in and of itself. We are too far gone to Political tyranny to have mere paper turn us back without massive buy-in by the public into Federalism again ( States Rights !! ).
