In the twilight of free government:
People believe voting alone can restore free government.
The outward institutional structures of a free people still exist. No matter how corrupted our system becomes, there will always be a congress, federal court system, and a president. Despite the fact that these institutions no longer serve their intended purposes and are thoroughly disconnected from any constitutional restraint, they give the patina of legitimacy to tyranny.
Unknown, faceless, unaccountable people somewhere in Washington, DC write regulations with the force of law.
The people have forgotten the purpose of elections, which is to entrust a few select men and women to serve and act as our surrogates, to act in our place in order to secure our safety, freedom and civil happiness. They have forgotten or never learned the purpose of government.
A presidential candidate is pre-bought by foreign governments.
And most tragic of all, in the twilight of free government, an unknowing people fail to understand Article V exists to lift them from their misery.
We are the many, our oppressors are the few. Be proactive. Be a Re-Founder. Join Convention of States. Sign the COS Petition.
