No fear is to deny humanity. Bravery does not eliminate fear. Bravery overcomes fear.
There are a few in this country trying to create fear. They are trying to make Americans fearful of their elected leadership. They attempt to create fear of those sworn to “protect and defend the constitution of the United States.” It is the constitution that peacefully overthrows the US government on a routine basis.
The fear mongers are attempting to undermine America by trying to convince people to arm themselves against this peaceful system. Americans peacefully and routinely overthrow their government . That’s democracy. The anti-democracy fear mongers are unfortunately alive and well exorcising their constitutionally guaranteed right to be fearful and small.
Every president selects his own successor prior to being elected. The JFK assassination failed to overthrow his administration. JFK’s administration continued, automatically lead by his hand picked successor, until the constitution called for an election.
The 22nd amendment, ratified on February 27, 1951, set a peaceful system of overthrowing the US government every 2 terms, 10 years maximum, if the people do not overthrow it after 1 term.
- In 1797 George Washington overthrew his own administration by going home.
- Prior to the 22nd amendment, the people have risen up an overthrown every white house that did not overthrow itself as Washington did.
In recent history:
- In 1968 the Johnson administration was overthrown when he decided not to continue.
- in 1976, even though Nixon left office, his administration continued until the constitution call for an election and the people overthrew his hand picked successor.
- In 1980 the people rose up and overthrew the Carter administration.
- In 1988 the constitution overthrew the Reagan administration.
- In 1992 the people rose up and overthrew the George H Bush administration.
- In 2000 The constitution overthrew the Clinton Administration.
- In 2008 the constitution overthrew the George W Bush administration.
- In 2016 it will overthrow the Obama Administration.
This peaceful system of transition of power leaves no need for anyone who supports the US Constitution to arm themselves against the US government. The fear mongers refuse to participate in a land of the free and the home of the brave. To enjoy the benefits of democracy requires the individual to find their personal power.
The path of peace is paved with personal power.
