Governor Walker, July 18, 2016
Why is it that people refuse to force those to whom we have given our consent to govern our country
in our stead, to obey the Constitution? Is coercion and threats of violence against members and their
families so rampant that so many of them are failing to perform as expected and as they have sworn
they will behave? Something extraordinary is taking place and it had better get fixed real soon.
The most successful cure for threats and coercion is exposure. Freedom of the Press is the tool
that will get the job done. There are so many people with access to information concerning the personal
lives of those in Congress, the Administration (other than Obama and Jarrett)l, and the Supreme Court
that information needed to expose things deterring politicians from behaving as Americans. I cannot
believe that nearly every member of Congress is behaving 180 out from what their constituents were
led to expect from them.
The only resolution to the corruption and misbehavior taking place in Washington is for every American
to refuse to reelect anyone to any office in 2016. A complete turn over of every seat up for election in
2016 is the only peaceful way to resolve our problems. If Hillary is elected, unconstitutionally, there
will be civil war in America and millions will die unnecessarily.
It is about time Americans take control of their country and remind those misdirected persons now
in office that they are not to control the people, they are to listen to the people that they serve. I
guess they all have lost the fact that they are “public servants” and as such, have no voice except
that of those for whom they serve.
Hillary Clinton, or any other woman, cannot be President of the United States. The Constitution, the
foundation of our System of Laws, and law that dictates how our government is to work in plain
English, does not permit a woman to be President and in the same breath does not allow women to
hold public office. Of course, politicians ignore anything that tends to prevent them from doing what
they want to do, and they rely on American citizens not paying attention or voicing their discontent
with what is being done. Not only that, they rely on citizens thinking that since politicians hold high
office in their government that they must be trusted and expected to do what they are supposed to
do. I know that is the way people thought of them when I was younger. All communications with
them usually started with “The Honorable….”. How mistaken they were then and now.
Article II. Section 1. of the Constitution clearly dictates that only a man shall be President and that
he shall serve but one term. The second sentence of that Article and Section can not possibly
spell out the law more clearly than it does. “He shall hold his Office for the Term of four Years, ….”
At the time the Constitution was framed women had no rights to hold any office or do anything
but manage their homes and families. They did not get the right to vote until 1920, after nearly
100 years of hard fought efforts to do so.
“On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all
American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and
responsibilities of citizenship.
In 1923, the National Women’s Party proposed an amendment to the Constitution that prohibited all
discrimination on the basis of sex. The so-called Equal Rights Amendment has never been ratified.”
The Supreme Court has not ruled on making women equal in status with men in all respects because
they haven’t the power to do so. An Article V. amendment is the only way that can be accomplished.
“He shall hold his Office for the Term of four Years, ….” This is law as is the entire Constitution, as
written and legally amended. The phrase “for the Term of four Years, ….” limits presidents to one
term of four years, no more. “the Term” is singular and the same as saying “one Term”.
The 22nd Amendment that purports to limit a president to two terms of four years each is a farce
and meant to take a persons focus off of Article II. Section 1. The 22nd Amendment cannot limit
a person to something he doesn’t have, so, this amendment gives a president the ability to serve
two four-year terms as well as limits him to two four-year terms. Where the authors dropped the
ball is that no mention is made, within the amendment, of Article II. Section 1. or of changes to it
made pursuant to ratification of the amendment. The 22nd Amendment is null and void because
Article II. Section 1., part of the original Constitution, has precedence.
Concerning term limits. Members of Congress are held to serving one term of the length specified
for service by the Framers in Article I. Sections 2, and 3. Section 2. concerns Members of the
House shall be chosen every second year. The word “Members” is all inclusive and the statement
means “All Members” shall be chosen “every” second year. There are no provisions for reelections
or service beyond two years provided in the Constitution.
“The House of Representatives “”shall” be composed of “Members chosen every second Year” by the
People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite
for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.”
Section 3. concerns Members of the Senate. ” The Senate of the United States shall be composed
of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator
shall have one Vote.” The 17th Amendment changed the wording from “chosen by the Legislature”
to “chosen by the People”. The limited period of time to be served by each Senator is “for six years.”
This is a definite statement limiting service to one period “for six years.”. There are no provisions
allowing Senators to be reelected..
The Framers wrote the Constitution on the assumption that those chosen to serve would be honest
and patriotic people. To frame the Constitution such that it provided protection from all the forms of
mischief man could get into would be impossible. Yet, they new well the weaknesses of men faced
with unguarded temptations, over time, bearing no penalties for abuse. That when they fell to those
temptations the ill-gotten gains therefrom would come to control their actions and lead to disservice
to their duties and to their constituents.
Governor, that is where our once great nation stands today. We have a government run amok of the
Constitution comprised of individuals that care not for their duties or their country but only their gains
from the temptations to which they have fallen.
The Framers provided the 2md Amendment for our use in taking back our government from those
that would exert tyranny upon us and take away the right of the People to control their country and
make slaves of us all. This is the very thing the Framers worked so hard to protect us from.
I prefer refusing to reelect anyone to open civil war. I hope you will help promote the idea when you
speak at the Republican Convention on Wednesday.
Please note, the Constitution does not provide for political parties. They are inventions of politicians
for serving politicians and amassing large amounts of money and power never intended. I think its
high time that the Constitution be honored and political parties made illegal. They are not needed.
Members of Congress are elected in the States that they are to serve. They need no national
exposure or support especially since they should serve one term and then go back home. Sufficient
information for voters to be able to choose candidates can be provided on line and in newspapers.
Presidents can be elected by enabling citizens to read and peruse facts about all candidates and
make their choice from that information. How well a candidate aligns himself with the views of
voters will determine who gets the most votes and becomes President.
