A few comments on the election November 4
By: Lewis Shupe President of US Freedom Army
These are a few of my thoughts from the November 4, 2014 elections. It is solely my opinion and everyone is certainly free to disagree with any or all of the thinking below.
Lewis Shupe, Founder
The Republican Party had a terrific victory and this gives me confidence that things in this nation will improve. Certainly they will be better than they were before the night of November 4, 2014. The problem is that I see no evidence that any of our constitutional complaints will be addressed. If the U.S. Constitution is not restored no long term progress will be made, the socialists will regroup and come back, and the lingering problems will continue or reappear. That is why this organization and others like it must go on. Our complaints cross party lines and have not been addressed for about 85 years. The continuous constitutional violations are a major reason why this nation is slowly sinking into mediocrity. Socialism cannot function when the Constitution is being scrupulously followed.
I can name at least 20 Republican Senators (and there are probably many more) that are not conservative and do not give one whit about the rules governing this nation. They, like almost everyone else in high office, are primarily concerned about getting reelected and will do whatever they deem necessary to see that this is what occurs. If it involves violating the Constitution to assure their reelection they will do that. If it involves more unconstitutional government programs they will vote for them. Our complaints are long lasting and cross party lines and are philosophically based. We want the rules followed as the patriots who wrote the Constitution intended for them to be followed.
The trap. I have seen this so many times in my lifetime it is becoming almost comical. The Socialist (Democrat) Party loses. They then say they are ready to cooperate. Cooperating with the Socialists means doing exactly what they want. The Socialists then ask for the exact same things they wanted before and if the opposition party doesn’t give it to them they claim the opposition is being uncooperative. The Main Stream Media ably assists them in this farce. The Republicans were elected to stop Barack Obama and his Socialist agenda and for no other reason – they had no platform. Will they succeed? Don’t bet on it. Saul Alinsky: “Accuse your opponent of what you are doing yourself.”
Obamacare. Of all the items on the Socialist agenda that the Republicans were elected to stop Obamacare is perhaps the primary issue. Those of you who have read the entire U.S. Freedom Army website know why Obamacare is unconstitutional and know the correct remedy. By implication, if Obamacare is unconstitutional any changes to it are also unconstitutional and any new replacement health care bill is also unconstitutional. The Republicans should send a repeal to Obamacare (Obama will pocket veto it) to get all the U.S. Senators who do not favor the repeal on record. When that fails they should attempt to defund it but they should not send changes to it. Changes, as I have said, are unconstitutional but, even more importantly, changes legitimatize the bill and make it virtually impossible to remove. Once the Socialists are back in power the changes they may have agreed to will be changed back the way they want. Based upon what I am hearing from even conservative Senators they plan on modifying the bill. This is a long term mistake and will backfire but you can bet the ranch they will do it anyway. The Socialists will agree to minor cosmetic changes to Obamacare to further cement their position on this horrible piece of legislation.
Illegal immigration. The Republican Party should be reminding everyone who is here illegally that they cannot be made a citizen by Executive Order. What is done by Executive Order can be undone by Executive Order. Anyone here illegally who believes that an Executive Order by Barack Obama makes him a citizen is not thinking clearly. Attack BHO on this issue at every opportunity. As an aside, federal immigration laws are constitutional and the federal government does have the authority in this area.
Debt and inflation. The Federal Reserve will continue to print money because otherwise the government will shut down. The Socialists will fight tooth and nail for every government program and unless the Republican Party suddenly grows a spine nothing will be done. Ultimately the subsequent inflation, if left unaddressed, will destroy the U.S. economy. Look for a national debt in excess of $20 trillion before BHO leaves office.
Impeachment. Impeachment should not be attempted unless the necessary 67 votes in the U.S. Senate are certain. Leave Barack Obama alone – he is either destroying or severely damaging his party. If Barack Obama marginalizes his party and they become recognized for what they are – the Socialist Party – he will have done a great service for all Americans. In a year or so the Democrats in the Senate may be calling for his head – let them initiate this action.
Learn history. In January 2001, George W. Bush was President and the Republicans were in control of both houses of Congress. What happened? The Republicans blew this opportunity and nothing of substance was accomplished. What was the first thing of consequence “W” did? He huddled with Ted Kennedy and created the “No Child left behind Act” – another unconstitutional poor piece of legislation that plagues America to this day. The federal government only has constitutional authority in education if there is discrimination involved and for no other reason.
The three branches. The victory election night only gives the Republicans control of one branch of government. The Executive Branch we know about but people forget the Courts. The court systems are riddled with Socialists, Marxist, Progressives and Communists of various ilks who do not give a darn about what the U.S. Constitution says and they are appointed for life. These people make up 20% to 40% of the members of our courts yet socialists are less than 5% of the U.S. adult population. This is why Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option, so he could load the courts up with his people as much as possible before the disaster struck. These people have a goal and it is not to interpret the law, it is to destroy the Free Market System (Capitalism) and the American way of life. In this regard they are succeeding massively.
Conclusion. I do not believe the Republicans will do one thing I have suggested and, just like 2001, they will blow it again. I hope I am wrong. This is why this army and others like it must go on. Somehow, somewhere, someday someone must restore order or this nation will crumble and it had better happen fairly soon. About a year and one-half from now lift up your head and see what has been accomplished. I would venture to say not much.
If you received this email and did not receive our November month-end report there is something wrong with your email account. Check your spam filters and be sure that email@example.com is allowed to send you information. We want to ensure that everyone receives his reports.
You may ignore this email if you are not a Twitter user or you do not wish to help the U.S. Freedom Army on Twitter. We value all our enlistees and will not think less of anyone who chooses for whatever reason to not work with us on Twitter.
For those of you helping us on Twitter or who wish to help us on Twitter we have technical changes below that may affect how we interact. To summarize, we are opening a new Twitter name to use for retweets and we have some new information on the timing of retweets.
ENLISTEES WITH TWITTER ACCOUNTS: NEW INSTRUCTIONS
Tweeting is the most important thing you can do to help this Army at this time.
We cannot respond to queries regarding our Army on Twitter. If someone wants to pose a question to the U.S. FREEDOM ARMY ask them to go to the website and use the “Contact Us” button. We simply do not have the time to respond to replies on Twitter and engage in discussions with people (especially liberals) about any matter on our Tweets. If you wish to do so that is your choice. When people make wild statements about our Army and it is obvious they have not read the website refer them to our website.
The United States Freedom Army wants to thank everyone who is helping us on Twitter. Twitter is the current major source for our enlistments. Sometimes in life you are asked to do things without being able to see the results. We see the results here, however, and our recruiting is doing very well. I wish there were some way we could share it with all of you but for the present we feel we need to keep our strength numbers somewhat under wraps. We will share the results with everyone as soon as we feel it is appropriate.
Below are the instructions for helping us recruit on Twitter. If you have less than 100 followers no retweeting is required on your part but you could help us by writing tweets.
Remember, this is optional. We will not think any less of anyone that does not wish to participate. We value all enlistees and appreciate your patriotism.
We especially need any enlistees with more than 20,000 followers who wish to work with us to advise us immediately of your desire to help. We really need your participation if you are in a position to help us. We need our Twitter efforts to start reaching new people out there in cyberspace.
We also need creative people to write new tweets for the United States Freedom Army. If you would like to write tweets for us please advise us. We would like you to write about 1-2 new tweets on average per day. There is no minimum number of followers required to write tweets.
At present, we get 80% to 90% of our enlistees from Twitter. We estimate that our current enlistees have a total number of Twitter followers between 1,000,000 and 2,000,000. If you would each give us two to four minutes a day of your time we could increase our enlistments dramatically.
These are the modified instructions for Twitter:
15,000 followers up to 100 retweets per day
The limitations above are there for a reason – try not to exceed them. One reason for the limitations above is to attempt to ensure you do not overwhelm your followers. Another reason is to not anger the Twitter Gods.
DO NOT RETWEET THE SAME TWEET MORE THAN ONCE PER DAY. IT IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.
@usfreedomarmyx (the U.S. Freedom Army Auxiliary). This contains all the tweets we have ever created or found that support our army. Approximately every 7 to 14 days we add about 40 to 80 new tweets to that timeline. This timeline only changes at the time we add those tweets and other than that is always the same. To see the newest tweets in time order you may use this timeline.
@presidentdiary (the Founder’s primary Twitter account). Here you will also find large amounts of tweets that change constantly during each day. While these are not in any time order, they will give you a wide variety of tweets to choose from should you wish to send different tweets to your followers each day.
There is an elliptical box in the upper right portion of your Twitter Page that says Search Twitter. In that elliptical box at the top enter @usfreedomarmyx or @presidentdiary (as you prefer) and then click on the title when it appears below. You should get a list of the TWEETS for the profile you have selected (usually, but not always). If you do not get a list of the TWEETS click on the profile – you will get the last two tweets – go to the bottom of the profile and it will say “Got to full profile” – click on “Go to full profile” and you will get the Tweets. Select any tweets you like and retweet them. Retweet ONLY those tweets that have the name of our website usfreedomarmy.com (or USFREEDOMARMY.COM) contained within the tweet.
Once you become proficient at this it can be done in just a few minutes. Whenever you go on Twitter you can do this first if you wish and it will be over almost immediately. You can always reuse a tweet if you like it over and over as long as you do it on different days.
Note: We retweet the same tweet over and over from day to day if we like it – do not be afraid to use the same tweet many times. On rare occasions Twitter will not allow you to retweet something – just ignore that tweet if this occurs – it is the nature of Twitter – we don’t understand why either.
Email us at any time if you have any problems or questions. The more enlistees we have in the army the more we will be able to increase pressure on the government to reform. If everyone pitches in we can assure you the results will be dramatic.
If you wish to write original tweets this is what we need you to do:
Advise us by email that you will be writing tweets and include your twitter name (@xxxxxxxxxx). In order for us to use your tweet it must contain the name of our web site spelled correctly in Twitter format USFREEDOMARMY.COM (or usfreedomarmy.com) and should include the word Enlist (or join). If you can also include U.S. Freedom Army in the tweet that is good but is not required. Pictures are good – they attract people – especially pictures that are large enough to be visible. One or two a day on average is fine – you do not have to exceed that limit. Be creative – we have people writing for us that have done a great job being creative.
If you are writing original tweets for us you MUST inform us so that we can get those tweets to the correct timelines. You may inform us by replying to this email or by using the “Contact Us” button on http://www.usfreedomarmy.com.
Please note: If you wish to communicate on Twitter with other enlistees you may use #usfreedomarmy. Those of you who are not using a web site name on your Twitter profile are welcome to use usfreedomarmy.com if you wish to do so.
Thank You and please sign up they need all the help they can get, our country needs to be returned to “WE THE PEOPLE”. “LET FREEDOM RING”
God Bless us all,
