The Republic is Dead

Supreme Court strikes down bans on same-sex marriage

I am not too worried about gay marriage, but the idea that the feds through any aspect of the government can force states to enact and honor gay marriage laws is just beyond me. The Constitution is dead. It means absolutely nothing. Even if you support the outcome of this ruling, you should be very concerned. The Constitution was designed to keep this from happening without a Constitutional amendment. Between this ruling, and yesterday’s SCOTUSCare ruling, we are no longer living in a Constitutional Republic (frankly, I think that has been the case for quite some time, but these two cases make it very clear and obvious to anyone — the Constitution is dead).

And what will “patriots” do now? Nothing useful. They will complain, post nasty comments on social media, go home after work, sit down and watch TV. The Republic is indeed dead, and it has been for quite some time. This is just the obituary.

The goal of the “Find a Free Country Project” is to research, explore and find a safe and secure free country outside the USA, that is not too large, has a relatively open immigration policy, has a friendly business climate, has a non-intrusive government committed to freedom, and then move to it.

    Well, one thing that is dead for sure is the rule of law in America, it’s pathetic how leftist judges can pass judgments that are obviously unconstitutional and no one does anything about it.

      Next will be the 2nd Amendment.

      • Croatian Capitalist says:

        Probably, and if Americans let that pass, it will be the end of America for sure.

        Even though this happened in America, it is still a good example of why I want the EU to fall apart, just like this obviously unconstitutional verdict was forced on those states that don’t want it by the leftist judges in Washington, the leftist bureaucrats in Bruxelles also want to force their idiocy on the smart(er) EU countries.

    I concur with your conclusion. Welcome to my world. Reality. I can attest that it takes a long time and a lot of serious contemplation to outgrow the sense of patriotism that was instilled in most of my generation; but it can be done.

    You are intent on finding a free country. Is there such a thing? Aren’t freedom and government antithetical concepts? Ask yourself, “What exactly is a country, and why would a truly free individual ever desire or need such a thing?” Is it the real estate within an arbitrary political border? Is it the people living within same? Is it a culture? Is it just a political idea? Is it the government claiming dominion over everyone claiming to be part of it?

    I live on the edge of a small town in rural America and no longer think of those living in the crumbling metropolises as my countrymen. I have far more in common with my simple neighbors of predominantly Mexican heritage, than I ever did with the Progressive ghetto dwellers in NYC, LA, or Baltimore. They don’t try to tell me how to live my life, and I leave them alone to live theirs as they choose.

    I could care less how the citizens of NYC, et al, choose to govern themselves, as long as they don’t come out here and try to govern me. They can marry their pet goats for all I care; just don’t expect me to celebrate the event or declare my approval of a lifestyle I am somehow hardwired to find rather repulsive. Yet, if they are thousands of miles away, why should I care just because some political entity claims dominion over all of us within arbitrary lines on a map?

    I undoubtedly have mentioned it before; but I really commend you to the book “How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World,” by Harry Browne. Especially the chapters on the ‘Government Trap’ and the ‘Utopia Trap.’ It is now available in Kindle format at Amazon. I have reread it at least once a year since 1979, just to keep myself grounded and out of such mental traps. I suspect that if you were to read it, you might soon be living as free a life as I have, which I am sure has been more so than at least 95% of the world’s inhabitants. ◄Dave►

      Dave, we all have decisions to make on how to live our lives. I like to consider myself a stoic in that I try to enjoy the things that I have versus constantly longing for those things I do not have. I also try to accept things as they really are rather than pretending they are something else. I am glad you have found yourself a bit of peace. If I was going to stay in the USA I suppose that is where I would find myself; in some rural setting away from corruption and foolishness. I hope to find peace elsewhere. I do not trust in the idyllic setting you describe. Yes you have evaded the corrupt and tyrannical grasp of modern American life, but I fear you have not escaped it. When the system collapses, which it will by design, you and those like you will become a target much like the Kulacks of of the Soviet Union. I understand that to find peace one must begin with yourself, but how can you be at peace in a country that is constantly attacking you and requires your constant and unbending conformism? No, I hope to find some peace for myself, and some safety for my family, and I think I will have a better chance if I look elsewhere than within the borders of the decaying carcass of a once thriving Constitutional Republic that is now the USSA.
