A Stealth Coup d'État in the United States
By Lawrence Sellin
On November 19, 1863 during the Consecration of the National Cemetery following the July 1-3, 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, President Abraham Lincoln pondered whether the new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal could long endure.
Contrary to Lincoln's hope, the government of the people, by the people and for the people is now perishing from the earth.
Military historian Edward Luttwak described a coup d'état as an infiltration of a small, but critical, segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder.
The U.S. government has been infiltrated by ambitious and greedy men and women whose allegiance is not to their country, but to themselves and their political party.
The aims and conduct of the Democrat and Republican establishments have become antithetical to the principles upon which the nation was founded. Their aims are driven by political expediency and winning elections for the sole purpose of attaining and maintaining personal power and profit. Their conduct is based on remaining unconstrained by the Constitution and the rule of law and unaccountable to the American people.
Elections are in no way about representative government, but instead are contests to determine who will possess the power to allocate favors and redistribute wealth from ordinary Americans to a small group of political supporters.
Corrupt politicians, the front men and operational arm of networked financiers, siphon off the wealth created by hard-working Americans while preserving the illusion of democracy for the now disenfranchised voters. Faux journalists, who falsely proclaim themselves as tireless defenders of liberty, then distort the news in an effort to manipulate public opinion to further the goals of selected politicians and their wealthy benefactors.
The real issue of the 2012 campaign is not Obama's record or Romney's business acumen. It is the endemic corruption in the federal government perpetrated by a permanent political class, financed by crony capitalism and facilitated by a fawning media.
The United States is on the verge of collapse because without adherence to the Constitution and respect for the rule of law no economic or any other policy can succeed. As long as the corrupt status quo continues, it matters little who wins in November because, ultimately, the ordinary American loses.
Many of those presently in the federal government have violated their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution, they have obstructed justice and they have scorned and rejected citizens' attempts to petition for the redress of grievances.
Democrat and Republican elected officials continue to block any objective investigation of Barack Obama's personal history because it would reveal dereliction of duty by most and criminal conspiracy by many.
The politicians recognize that if the truth was told about the depth of the corruption and the extent of the criminality in the government, the American people would rise up in open rebellion against those who have undermined the Constitution and flouted the rule of law.
As Abraham Lincoln said, the American people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution. The loyalty of the American people is to our country and our Constitution, not to shady officeholders or petty bureaucrats.
Between now and Election Day on November 6, 2012, there is a window of opportunity to stop the coup d'état, restore the Constitution, uphold the rule of law and pave the way for the election and appointment of honest members of government.
Thomas Jefferson wrote:
"And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?"
The battle line of the Second American Revolution has been drawn: expose Obama and the entire corrupt system protecting him will also be exposed.
The time for education and persuasion is over. The time for resistance has come.

Impressively well put. This should be on the front page of the washington post newspaper.
None of this is new to me. How beautifully, briefly, and clearly said.
We the people need to put these elected criminals into prison for committing treason, daily, against the USA, and thus against "We the people", for the last 100+ years. My estimate of the elected offenders is about 95% of ALL of the electeds, potus to dog catcher, for the last 100+ years.
"We the people" have been betrayed by the very people we elected for entirely too long. It is time to exact a price from those traitors!
I believe one of the founders said "The tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of patriots from time to time".
I am a veteran. I once wrote the famous check... "up to and including my life... for my country".
The cowards that are ruining the USA would never make that promise. They expect YOU to do that for them.
This is only a half truth. An obviouse discription of the most expensive threater the globe has ever witnessed. It would be true but for one thing you left out. Who dose the politian answer to? They are not the ultimite power in the land. They never were. Special interest groups... The true secret power that rules the world. Our Founding Fathers were the richest men in the colonies who refussed to pay taxes to the crown of England. With propaganda as a weapon they twisted the facts to raise an army against the sovien state. They were the Special Intest Groups of their day and they took the power from King George for themselves, nobody eles.
Nothing is different today. The real American dream is that anybody can get rich, buy or become a politian and rule the world. WHAT could be GREATER! You have not been robbed of your birth right as an American. You have not been oppressed by Devine Right or Hereditary Rule. Is the system corrupt? Depends where your standing. Ask yourself, who dosen't serve themselves and those who are close to them. Morality is a very rare quality in people and even rarer with a leader. Is Obama corupt? Sure he is, bought and paid for by the unions. He owes lots of favors to unknown uber rich people that paid for his rise to the presidency. What a suprise...
I totaly disagree with everthing that Obama has done during his presidency. He has personaly made things worse not better. He has betrayed the American dream and ideals that all men can be as greedy and power hungery as they want. Or more eloquently define as a pursuit of happiness.
His smear campain is just sad and he will loose in a landslide simmilar to Carter. Have faith that The American Dream will win out over equality in poverty.
As Michael Savage put in a most eloquent fashion, "Trickle down economics works much better than trickle up poverty (currently known as Obamanomics)."
