The New King George / by kevin murray

A great portion of our Declaration of Independence was the facts submitted to demonstrate the tyranny of King George and our Great Britain suppressors against us as a people and the colonies as a whole.  Unfortunately, as time has moved on, the independence that we once had and so richly cherished, has been compromised by the very government that is in theory, of the people, by the people, and for the people.  The people have become subservient to the government, and especially subservient to our National Government.


For instance, "He has erected a multitude of New Offices…" such as:          

            Director of the White House Office of Cybersecurity

            Director of the White House Office of Health Reform and Counselor to the President

            Director of the Office of National AIDS Policy

            Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change

The above agencies were just some of the appointments made by the current Presidential administration without Senate confirmation.


"He has obstructed the Administration of Justice."  For instance, after both bodies of Congress pass a bill, it is submitted to the President for either his signature or his veto.  However, recent administrations have added their own Executive interpretation to this straightforward signature option, by adding a signing statement to their signature, signifying how the President believes this particular law should be construed which essentially interprets the law as if the Executive branch was the judicial branch and thereby modifies law and consequently supersedes the congressional legislative bodies.


"He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power." The Executive branch has consistently waged war without congressional declaration, by declaring that since the President is the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, that he is in effect, able to call forth military forces at his prerogative, to fight enemies both foreign and domestic and without the need or aid of congressional approval.  This effectively makes the President, and therefore the military, independent of and hence superior to Civil Power.


"For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury," in which more than 90% of criminal trials, are settled with essentially coerced or extorted plea bargains, a Faustian bargain at best, and basically a perversion of justice for the convenience and service of the state. 


Our new King George has been in existence for quite a while, each President in his own time adding his particular imprint to the list of grievances impressed against the people.  The Presidency has devolved into an effective dictatorship, in which all laws are obeyed at his convenience, and the ones that the President feels the right to supersede, amend, or to ignore he does so with seemingly unlimited immunity.  The President is no fool, he makes sure to attempt to placate his political party, to provide the general public its bread and circuses, and he treats the military with all due deference and consideration.   The President wants the public to be fat, dumb-downed, morally suspect, and subservient.   The President smiles while he kills us softly.  We are his bleating sheep to be fed and then shorn again and again,
