Second American Revolution
Are the American People again suffering taxation without representation?
Are our politicians more concerned with political power and party alliance than performing their duties effectively?
Has party politics paralyzed our system?
Is it time to do away with career politicians?
Are the banks, the corporations and the political parties running this country?
Are the American People responsible?
Do the American People have the right to fix what is broken?
Is it time to re-think our constitution?
Should we consider that many of the ideas that formed the original constitution are not relevant today?
Could the American People frame a better constitution that allows for the world we live in today?
Should this even be discussed?
Where have all the patriots gone?
These are just a few of the questions the American People should be asking themselves. After all, even Thomas Jefferson (author of the Constitution) recognized many of the problems we would be facing today.
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. - Thomas Jefferson
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. – Thomas Jefferson
[The] Bank of the United States… is one of the most deadly hostility existing, against the principles and form of our Constitution… An institution like this, penetrating by its branches every part of the Union, acting by command and in phalanx, may, in a critical moment, upset the government. - Thomas Jefferson
I am not among those who fear the people. They, and not the rich, are our dependence for continued freedom. And to preserve their independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. - Thomas Jefferson
I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country. - Thomas Jefferson
This past weeks CNN presentation on Fareed Zakaria GPS tries to answer some of these questions.
A brilliant, well-spoken reporter that digs into the questions on how to fix what is broken.
Please listen to the podcast above. Think what the consequences will be for our children, their children, and the country in general if we fail to act. It is the American Peoples responsibility to do what is necessary to keep this country prosperous and responsive to the needs of the common man.
Respond in comment or submit an article. The Jefferson Tree is not interested in party rhetoric, we encourage the submission of independent thoughts, ideas and suggestions on what should be done to fix what is broken.., not what is in the best interest of party politics.
