    The Year of Jubile! -Leviticus Chapter 25:13-17. i

    This is the time of *Jubile: when so much of the wealth has been siphoned up by the greedy few that the economy comes to a halt-
    social unrest is assured and revolution imminent.
    *Jewish year of restitution: in Jewish history, a year of restitution that was proclaimed every 50 years by a countrywide blast of trumpets.
    During the period, land was left uncultivated, slaves were emancipated, and land that had been sold reverted to its former owner.

    Capitalism:
    Is a hangover from Feudalism.
    Even today many corporations hold
    dead peasant insurance policies on their employees, naming themselves as THE BENEFICIARY.

    A 401-K may give you a false sense of security.
    The money you put in has a certain buying power
    when you put in that it will not have when you cash it out,because the congress and those in government feel it is their right to spend money that they borrow from foreign governments that you will have to pay back.
    And to add insult to inquiry you will have
    to pay taxes if or when you do you cash out!

    So, when the Qs run out and the insiders pull the chain on the DOW,
    the insiders will have stolen your retirement funds.

    PONZI ANYONE?

    When viewed in its historical setting.
    The twelfth amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides the states with Veto Power over the tyranny of government.

    The Electoral College was intended by our Founding Fathers to preserve the ancient Precedent established by the Israelites on the Plains of Encampment when Levi was in the Midst: also when the thirteen Chieftains of the lost tribes who had settled in Scandinavia held a TING to elect their King; likewise when the Pope is chosen: and this is the reason that when George Washington was likewise elected he was given the title of ~Mr. Precedent.

    [With ambiguous placement, a modifier is confusing to a reader because it can refer to two or more words in a sentence.] ~(c) 1999 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

    “The Electors…one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves…
    . But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice.” ~Amendment XII.

    Senator William Jenner warned in a speech: "Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded."

    The CFR is the promotional arm of the Ruling Elite in the United States of America. Most influential politicians, academics and media personalities are members, and it uses its influence to infiltrate the New World Order into American life. Its' "experts" write scholarly pieces to be used in decision making, the academics expound on the wisdom of a united world, and the media members disseminate the message.

    Thomas Jefferson’s bountiful book collection, now housed in the Library of Congress, comprises the bulk of renaissance enlightenment; among which may be found his personalizes copy of Swedenborg’s True Christian Religion, with his hand written notes along the margins.

    Poetryfortherevolution bears references to this esoterica, and deals with the ambiguity found in the twelfth amendment of the
    U. S. Constitution.

    Viz. Leocorion was a temple in Athens,
    erected to the three daughters of Leos,
    who immolated themselves for the good
    of their country.
    The Parishioners of which are those who
    perform uses without thought of recompense
    and are known but to God

    1. MAXIMUS HOMO defines: “… new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form …
    “~The Declaration of Independence.
    As our Founding Fathers envisioned it!
    When we speak of a form of government; no one thinks of any external or visible shape, but of the nature and adjustment of the various parts composing the government, and by means of which it is administered. A person, who reads and understands our constitution or organic law of the State, sees therein its form of government. We speak, also, of the form of society in a particular nation; and by this is meant the nature and relation of the several parts composing such society, the nature and arrangement of its social, industrial, commercial, educational, artistic, moral, and religious elements. Again, we speak of the form of a government; and by this we mean the character, connection, order, subordination, etc., of its various functionaries, the mode of their appointment, and their respective duties. When it is said, therefore, that our government is in the human form, the meaning is that it is in human order; that all its parts, or all the innumerable societies of which it consists, are so arranged and adjusted as to express most perfectly the truly human principles which constitute the essential spirit of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.. In other words, the relation, mutual dependence, and intercommunication of the societies composing the whole, and the uses they respectively perform, correspond to those existing among the various organs of the human body and their respective uses. One is a perfect type or representative image of the other body. It should appoint its wisest and best men to preside over its interests, because every one is aiming to subject himself to the government of the highest good and truth. And so the form or order of that community becomes more and more human. All its corporate acts express more and more faithfully the human thoughts and feelings with which the minds of its individual members are imbued. Such community is in the human form, therefore, just so far as the individual minds composing it are human. The moment one ceases to do its work, or appropriates more that its share of the juices elaborated, or more than it needs to fit it for the performance of its appointed use, that moment comes disease to itself and disease to all the rest. And if it perseveres in this abnormal course, sooner or later death inevitably ensues. Notwithstanding there exists authority and obedience, there is nothing like tyranny on the one hand or slavishness on the other. There must be perfect freedom.

    Demise of our Republican form of goverment.

    Demise of our Republican form of goverment.

    “Our Founding Fathers predicted the inevitable demise of their republican form of government, which is presently upon us: ‘It takes time, observed John Jay, to make Sovereigns of Subjects and for them to realize that the government is their own.'
    'The Republic will degenerate into a democracy with the politicians promising largess and the people voting their own self-interest,' quipped Madison.
    'The lawyers will get into Congress to manage the Constitution, license paper money and pillage the treasury,' remarked Amos Singletary.
    'The Supreme Court judges, ignorant of its historical setting, will be unable to interpret the Constitution and the original intent of its provisions; and there will arise a two-party system, divided along economic interests, leading to deadlock as the public good is disregarded in the conflict of rival parties,” opined Madison.

    Every kingdom divided against itself
    Will be laid waste … … … and if the Republicans drive out the Democrats, Satin
    Would be divided against Himself; how, then, will his kingdom stand?”
    ~Matthew 12: 25-26.

  4. Ron Paul's choice for VP should be one contemplated at great length and with a lot of political savvy. Take the suggestion of Christie. That choice would doom the ticket big time! Does Dr. Paul really want to carry that burden? I doubt it.
    Christie is a blowhard,corporate stooge who lampooned Whitman's race in California. The best way to handle that bully is to politely decline any offer of help from him!
    It would be wise to stay out of the Republican elite area also. Those candidates are toxic politically. And lets not forget how those clowns laughed at Ron Paul's ideas during the debates in 2008!
    The Koch-funded Tea Party extremists are a bad idea also. After being sold out in the last election they should be a bit more suspicious of candidates that promise everything and anything under the sun to get elected!
    The best choice has already been indicated, Judge Andrew Napolitano.
    Napolitano is much more intelligent than the other GOP candidates and he actually has read and comprehends the Constitution whereas the others just use it as a talking point or buzz-word.
    Napolitano is the only correct choice.

  5. Funny enough I think Ron Paul is paving the way for his son Rand Paul. I think Ron Paul sit this one out and just help his son get the nomination.
    Once that happens even the Mark Levin's and Sean Humanity's of the world will have to support the tea party candidate.
    Problem for them is Paul has principles no matter what neoconservatives think they can or want to do if Paul is the candidate their dreams will be shattered.
    The tea party will not become the neocon talking points.
    Who is the VP would be could be interesting but I personally would like to see
    Ran Paul/Chris Christie we need people who will lead this country, follow a constitution and get this budget under control.
