Top Four Problems Causing Constitutional Lawlessness by Debbie Lewis
Presidential Elections are just around the corner and so are the establishment games. There are four major problems we face going forward, lack of constitutional leadership, public apathy, media and lobby interference.
In an interview for the film Camp FEMA, 2008 Presidential Candidate Chuck Baldwin said Washington D. C. is “too far gone…It doesn’t matter which party you put in charge in the White House or Congress, nothing of substance changes.” We have no real representation.
Pete DeFazio admitted our reps don’t read legislation in his infamous rant during the USA PATRIOT Act voting. Washington, You’re Fired revealed the bi-partisan approved USA PATRIOT Act was switched with a different version hours before it was to be voted on. Congress voted on it anyway. Washington, You’re Fired cites other unconstitutional bills passed by congress and scores of unconstitutional Executive Orders.
“Voters need to be intimately acquainted with Article 1 Section 8, along with our Bill of Rights.
For those who are not as knowledgeable about the Constitution, there are two extremely powerful documentaries covering the subject, Don’t Tread On Me and Blood of Patriots. They don’t really teach this stuff any more,” says award winning independent filmmaker, William Lewis.
A good friend once told me she sees no benefit from participating in politics, because “they will do what they want and tell me what I have to do, so why bother?” “Is public apathy caused by people feeling their opinion doesn’t matter,” asks Debbie Lewis, writer at William Lewis Films.
In 2008 Federal Elections, less than sixty percent of eligible voters actually voted. In most of the past non-presidential election years, the participation rate is less than forty percent. Is this a lack of confidence in those running?
During the past eleven presidential election years, voter participation averaged under fifty-four percent.
“The media has been manipulating our elections. The 2008 Presidential election cycle was the most blatant,” states Lewis.
“There were great, constitutional candidates from the major parties and the mainstream media ignored them, virtually blackballing them. It’s clear the mainstream media does not work independently of moneyed interests.”
According to Open Secrets, since 2008, the Lobby industry has spent more than $3 billion per year to get the attention of political figures nationwide. Cynthia Davis, Lt Governor hopeful in Missouri said that on the state level, our representatives looked into the gallery to the lobbyists to see how to vote.
Among the top twenty spenders are several medical and pharmaceutical companies, realtors, weapons manufacturers, and communications companies that seem to be paying to play.
These four things are intertwined. If mainstream media doesn’t cover a candidate and the public doesn’t bother to research the facts, people make uninformed decisions. Wealthy candidates can afford to parade their message, unchecked.
In public polls, people have very little trust in the media or in congress, yet they continue to vote for the same type people.
If we are to break this cyclical paradigm, we’re going to have to get involved. Let’s hope this realization happens soon!
