Why do we need Forums?
« on: May 12, 2015, 06:53:36 AM »
As we go about our daily lives, our country is in grave danger.

There once was a time when no other nation on the planet would ever entertain the thought of trying to conquer us. Today, our current leadership and lawmakers seem to be intent on destroying us from within, and aiding those who would defeat us from afar.

Last year I began reading the Bible. This year I am reading it again, on a different schedule. This morning I read chapter 1 in the book of Isaiah. Wow! If that first chapter doesn't describe the current state of America, nothing does. Simply replace "Israel" with "America." But all is not hopeless; it also gives remedy in verses 16-20 on how to recover and get back into God's good graces.

For years I have said that in order for this great nation to be restored to what it once was, "We The People" must change our ways, and refocus. We have been led astray, and followed like lost sheep. Morality cannot be legislated; it must come from the people. If we are to get the bus back on the right road, we have to elect good drivers.

But how do we undo all the damage caused to our bus by previous bad drivers who made many wrong turns and got us hopelessly lost on unpaved wilderness trails instead of staying on the paved interstate highways? As long as our Constitution is still the document which dictates what the federal government can and cannot do, "We The People" must re-educate ourselves and try to spread the good word that there is still hope, but time is running out. It always has been, and still is up to "We The People" to be diligent in keeping watch on those who we elect to represent us as "drivers of the bus."   And that's where comes in...

I personally have many questions on how several things that we take as commonplace can be "constitutional." In no particular order of importance, things like;

  • How can it be "constitutional" for a few select states with early primary elections to set the direction a presidential election takes for the entire country?
  • How can it be "constitutional" for states to agree among themselves to tell their state electors to vote for whoever wins the popular vote, thereby setting simple majority rule, and effectively eliminating the electoral college?
  • How can it be "constitutional" for lawmakers to write laws from which they are exempt?
  • What happens to all bills if it is later discovered that the president who signed them into law was unlawfully elected?
  • ...and the list goes on...
   I know I am not the only one with concerns, and many of us have concerns of our own. is a place where we of like minds can gather to share concerns, learn, and spread what we learn to others.

   What are your thoughts?

If Hillary was the answer, then it must have been a really stupid question!
