The Fast Track to Tyranny

By wise counsel thou shalt make war:
and in a multitude of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 24:6

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            Obama has been demanding to be granted “fast track,” power. When this is granted to the President by Congress, this allows the President or the US Trade Representative to write the legislation, to limit debate, forbid amendments, and set a date on when the vote must take place by, usually within 90 days. Many people have complained about the rotten results of fast track, such as NAFTA, which shipped our jobs overseas; but few have understood what a monstrosity Fast Track is in and of itself.

Public Money for Public Purposes

And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise,
and perverteth the words of the righteous.” Exodus 23:18

            Some people don’t understand the meaning of the term Republic, thinking it is interchangeable with Democracy. Some Greek words and Latin word convey the same meaning, for example the Greek word “agnostic,” is Greek for without knowledge, and the Latin word “ignoramus,” is Latin for without knowledge. The same cannot be said for the Greek word “Democracy,” which means rule of the people, and the Latin word, “Republic,” which means “Public thing.” So a Republic is a form of Civil Government, that is limited to do only those things that are truly public things.

CPoW Pleads The 5th For The Pre-born.

“Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.” Proverbs 31:8
By Riley J. Hood-State Chairman

            On January 22 1973 the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision struck down the State of Texas’s anti-abortion statute. Roe allowed for abortion in the “first trimester of pregnancy”, and declared the pre-born baby to be a non-person with regards to the law, thus the status of “fetus” was introduced. Fetus is Latin for young one, but the term is used to deny personhood to the pre-born, like “chattel” was used by an earlier Supreme Court to deny slaves their personhood. Later on the same day as Roe, (January 22, 1973) the Supreme Court handed down Doe v. Bolton, saying in that decision that the preborn child was a “fetus;” or a non-person during the entire length of the pregnancy; and thus could be aborted right up until birth, as being the “property of the mother.” Continue reading
