There has been a great display of smoke and mirrors out
of the rats' nest called Washington in the past months.
Everyone wants onto the band wagon to set up health insurance
for all Americans. What a crock! I know this is a highly
emotional issue . . . but bear with me a bit.
They have had this system in Canada and England for many
years and both have been a total failure. What makes them
think that we can make a go of socialist medicine?
Let's eyeball an outfit . . . excuse me, it's a cabinet
post called the Department of Health, Education and Welfare.
After the most recent riots in Los Angeles, mouthpieces from
the Justice department and 'presidential spokesman' have come
out and said the riots were a result of the 'Great Society'
programs of Lyndon Johnson. Then we heard the howling . . .
like coyotes serenading the full moon.
The programs they are all condemning are socialist
programs . . . just like the one for national health
insurance. Why should this one work and all the others be no
good? Do you think perhaps all the rhetoric was only a
political expedience? You know, say something to get it off
our backs and put the blame somewhere else! How many
billions of our tax dollars were thrown into these unworkable
socialist programs by the Reagan/Bush administrations? Why
didn't they say then that they were useless and save all our
money? Give me a break.
The Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW)
was created April 11, 1953 (doesn't that take your breath
away?) under Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1953. The plan
changed the Federal Security Agency into a new cabinet
department. What I am about to report comes from the
Encyclopedia Americana. It was written by a previous
Secretary of HEW and is a glowing report of their activities
biased to the extreme to justify their existence and of
course, their jobs.
Let's look at some of the major elements that come under
their wing . . . Social Security, of course. We've taken it
across the hot coals in Volume 1. A huge insurance scam
which was foisted on Americans.
Next is the Public Health Service. This was established
as the Marine Hospital Service in 1798 to provide care for
American seamen. This was similar at the time to military
hospitals set up to care for soldiers and sailors.
Activities were generally increased to include national
and interstate quarantine and the collection of data
concerning sanitation measures. (Now this is one the feds
should be pretty good at . . .) In 1912, Congress extended
their duties to include scientific investigation. These
results are made available to public and private organiza-
tions. The next paragraph is so flowery that I had to
include it verbatim . . .
"To carry on this important work, Congress created
within the service the National Institutes of Health which
conduct research into the problems of arthritis and metabolic
diseases, microbiological diseases, cancer, heart disease,
mental disorders, mental health, and neurological diseases
and blindness." Now that should make you want to stand up
The Office of Education, which is an outgrowth of the
National Department of Education established in 1867, is the
clearing house for data on progress in educational procedures
and methods of school administration. Results of experience
in educational methods all over the country are brought
together here, analyzed, and made available to educators
throughout the nation. Whooppeeeee.
Let's look at some dates here. This National Department
of Education was established in 1867. This was also a very
sad and volatile period in our history. There was as much
conspiracy around the shooting of Lincoln as there was with
Kennedy. Lincoln refused to allow bankers to issue money so
he had the famous 'Lincoln greenbacks' issued to finance the
war. After they had him assassinated, all sort of programs
were pushed through Congress to alter our form of government.
(Yes, this has been going on for a long time.) A major area
to alter government is in education. Teach them that what-
ever the government does is good for the nation. Teach them
that government jurisdiction is all pervasive and omnipotent.
It's a slow process but you can't argue with success.
What do we see today? Everyone says we must have major
reform in education in the US. Both little George and
Clinton want to be the 'education president'. Our students
fall way below students of other nations. Whose fault is
that? The students or the education system? If we really
want a good education system, we all will tell all government
to butt out and keep their noses out of education. First
thing you do is to teach that family values are not impor-
tant. Next, convince students that religious values belong
to the horse and buggy era and are not really important.
Once that is done, the doors open to acceptance of all manner
of weird ideas.
Now we are enlightened by a revealing report on the
evening news that children in America are not reading enough
books. They are spending too much time watching television.
No kidding . . . I wonder how many of our tax dollars were
spent on this study. Sure some bright people in DC!
Speaking of Clinton, it's reported that he went to
Oxford University. Is this the definition of an oxymoron . .
a moron who went to Oxford?
Another element under HEW is the Food and Drug Ad-
ministration. No need to say more about these creeps . . .
just read the chapter entitled Food and Drugs. One of their
duties 'is formulate standards and definitions for foods that
will promote honesty and fair dealing in the interest of the
consumer.' Yea, sure! (I just had to include that. . . )
Another section under their wing is the Office of
Vocational Rehabilitation. (Sorry, never heard of this one.)
Their function is to cooperate with the states in preparing
for and restoring to useful employment disabled civilians who
have job handicaps resulting from illness, accident or other
The next couple of outfits under their control, and of
course funding, will come as a surprise. One is Saint
Elizabeths Hospital for the mentally ill and the others are
three FEDERALLY FUNDED CORPORATIONS -- The American Printing
House for the Blind, in Louisville, Kentucky; Gallaudet
College (for the deaf) in Hartford, Connecticut and Howard
University in DC, a college for blacks. (Federal Corpora-
tions?) I'll bet you didn't know your money was being spread
around so generously.
To cap off this report from the encyclopedia, I want to
include the last paragraph of their rubbish which shows in a
subtle way what they consider their authorization from the
"Together the programs administered under the Department
of Health, Education, and Welfare represent a comprehensive
group of services to meet nationwide needs. As a partner in
these programs, the federal government cooperates with the
states and their communities in safeguarding the general
welfare of the people."
The key words are . . . the general welfare of the
people. These sick and warped legal minds have had some
success with using the general welfare clause of the consti-
tution for all sorts of socialist programs. When challenged
in court, what do we have again? More warped legal minds
which agree that this is a good way to get programs in place
to help the people. Drivel.
Critics of the proposed constitution jumped on this
notion. It has been urged and echoed that the power "to lay
taxes, duties, imposts, and excises, to pay for the debts,
provide for the common defense and general welfare of the
United States," amounts to an unlimited commission to
exercise every power which may be alleged to be necessary for
the common defense or general welfare. No stronger proof
could be given of the distress under which these writers
labor for objections, than their stooping to such a mis-
construction. (James Madison, in paper No. 41 of The
Madison continues "[T]he language used by the convention
is a copy from the Articles of Confederation. The objects of
the Union among the States, as described in article third,
are "their common defense, security of their liberties and
mutual and general welfare." The terms of article the eighth
are still more identical: "All charges of war and all other
expenses that shall be incurred for the common defense or
general welfare and allowed by the United States in Congress
shall be defrayed out of a common treasury," etc. A similar
language again occurs in article ninth. Construe either of
these articles by the rules which would justify the construc-
tion put on the new Constitution, and they vest in the
existing Congress power to legislate in all cases whatsoever.
But what would have been thought of that assembly, if,
attaching themselves to these general expressions and
disregarding the specifications which ascertain and limit
their import, they had exercised an unlimited power of
providing for the common defense and general welfare?"
As we've pointed out many times throughout these books,
James Madison was adamant that the powers delegated to the
federal government by the proposed Constitution are few and
defined. (Paper No. 45)
We granted specific and enumerated powers to the feds.
They have NO carte blanche to pass legislation to care for us
from the cradle to the grave . . . NONE. They cannot take
general terms and twist them into authority to pass whatever
they take a whim to legislate.
Again, we must point out the ninth and tenth amendments
which were passed to further restrict the federales from just
this assumption on their part. If they feel, in their
peculiar minds, that general welfare means they can do
whatever they want, we must point out that the tenth
amendment says, "No way."
THE ENUMERATION IN THE CONSTITUTION OF
CERTAIN RIGHTS, SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED
TO DENY OR DISPARAGE OTHERS RETAINED
BY THE PEOPLE.
THE POWERS NOT DELEGATED TO THE UNITED
STATES BY THE CONSTITUTION, NOR PROHIBITED
BY IT TO THE STATES, ARE RESERVED TO THE
STATES RESPECTIVELY, OR TO THE PEOPLE.
Nowhere in the document does it even suggest that the
general welfare clause can be substituted as a power to enact
But just look at the empires these schmucks are creating
at the rats' nest called our nations capital . . . They are
not only giving us a royal ride but they are shoving it in
our face too.
Their pompous attitude is that we should be happy that
they are so concerned with our general welfare. We should be
contented country bumpkins that really appreciate all they
have done and are doing for us. After all, the public good
is their only concern. You know, things like free cheese,
medicare, medicaid, welfare, massive retirement payments for
members of Congress, and more.
Congress can't alter the Constitution by legislation.
It receives it's power from the document and can pass laws
only within the powers it defines. These powers cannot be
extended by a loose construction of constitutional phrases.
And whose fault is it? Ours mainly . . . because we
haven't closely watched what the jerks that we sent off to
the funny farm were doing. We have to wake them up and
remind them that we are out here and they will obey the law.
There is a very simple solution to the problems of
health insurance for Americans. Watch . . .
By our massive reaction to what they are doing to us
through these constitutional violations, we could easily get
them to restore constitutional sanity to our government.
Throw out the Federal Reserve System and restore our right to
honest money. Stop all unauthorized spending and through
these two books, most of it has been pointed out. Then,
abolish the IRS and their illegal taxes and we would all have
enough money to afford the health protection we deserve. In
essence, we want them to go back to believing in the
supremacy of the Constitution and obey its dictates.
We have several big problems concerning these people.
One, no one knows what the Constitution says or means. If an
issue concerning constitutionality surfaces, our public
servants don't read the Constitution to see if what they are
doing is allowed. They refer it to a committee which then
decides if yea or nay it's constitutional and they report to
members of Congress. Constitutional or not, it then sails
through the legislative process. They don't bother to check
the document themselves nor do they have one of their staff
to check it out. You know the attitude . . . hey, don't
confuse me with facts, my mind is made up.
Next, we ordered all members of Congress to take an oath
by swearing (or affirming) to God 'to support this Constitu-
tion'. It obvious that the oath has become a recital of so
many words before they can go back to giving us the shaft.
We need to exert all our pressure on these clowns by
letters, phone calls and by Petitions for Redress. At the
end of this book is an ASCII file of a petition which can be
printed out on any printer. Make copies and fill out your
grievance. Send it to your representative and both Senators
by registered mail. These people need to be flooded by a
million or more of these petitions. One of two they can
chuckle over but numbers get their attention. They do
understand when their constituents are upset as we saw when
their banking practices were made known. The future of our
country and by that, also our liberties, happiness and lives
are at stake.
The traitor is already within the gates!
