Do you stand with President Trump for our flag, our country, and our heroes?

by Robert John Stevens, September 26, 2017

Yes, but no. President Trump’s role is limited to the Executive Branch’s responsibilities as outlined in the United States Constitution.

Moral citizens of virtue cannot support corruption in government, unconstitutional wars of aggression, the forced redistribution of wealth, over burdensome taxation (aka theft), endless regulations, no representation in government, the steady advancements towards socialism and the disregard for inalienable rights, liberty and private property rights.

Should then the Pledge of Allegiance be to the flag, a ruler or to the country? Because the country is defined by the U.S. Constitution, perhaps we need a wording change.

It is the right of citizens to stand or kneel during the pledge. It is also the right of a professional athletes’ employer to fire them if they may contractually do so.

We need a president who is grounded on correct principles. Asking citizens to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance would be much easier if President Trump advocated correct, founding principles in voice and action. I recommend he appoint former Congressman Ron Paul as his tutor.

Or is this another distraction with a political goal in mind? Wrote Paul Craig Roberts:

The protests by black pro-football players by refusing to stand for the national anthem has come at an unfortunate time. It is playing into the hands of the military/security complex which is using President Trump’s loud voice challenging the “anti-americanism” to whip up patriotic fervor. It is amazing how people fall for it every time. The military/security complex and their presstitutes are creating public anger at those “attacking our country.” This anger will be turned from black football players to Russia.

With the public in its pocket, the military/security complex will increase its reckless provocations of Russia until we are all dead. — Washington Has Initiated Military Conflict With Russia

Prosecute Congressmen Who Don’t Read and Debate Bills

by Robert John Stevens, May 19, 2016

Will somebody please introduce a bill to prosecute Congressmen who don’t read and debate new bills before casting their votes?—Not censure, nor impeach but prosecute.

When passed, such a bill would significantly reduce the size of government and may even limit it to the U.S. Constitution and a set of basic principles that school children could recite.

Reasonable-sized bills can be read on the House or Senator floor before debate. Those in attendance cannot be accused of not reading a bill.

A government of laws and ordinances will grow until it self destructs. Only a government of principles can endure.

RE: Donald Trump: An Evaluation — Paul Craig Roberts

Hi Paul,

In your article, Donald Trump: An Evaluation — Paul Craig Roberts you’re right and insightful to point out that Trump’s advisors will surely influence his stance and decisions. Now that you wrote it, hopefully he’ll correct his path.

We live though in a country where few people strive to understand correct precepts and principles. As you well know, attempts to discover them require criss-crossing through landmines of untruths. I believe though that correct precepts and principles are built into us and when we re-connect to them we bask in “ah ha moments.”

Even the word precept has been corrupted. Look at its meaning in 1828, “In a general sense, any commandment or order intended as an authoritative rule of action; but applied particularly to commands respecting moral conduct. The ten commandments are so many precepts for the regulation of our moral conduct.”

By the way, the spelling of these two words need to be corrected in your article:

disqulifying (disqualifying)
insubstantialality (insubstantiality)
