When George Washington won the first presidential election and was inaugurated to become the President of the Untied States, it was done peacefully. There had been a call for Washington to assume the roll of a monarch and he rejected, even a monarch without hereditary succession. The transfer of power from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson was a peaceful transfer even after a very bitter campaign in which ridiculous and slanderous accusations were made. John Adams set a standard that had been followed by all others not elected or leaving the White House until 2016.
This peaceful transfer of power set a standard to which the rest of the world would aspire. It is now an accepted concept throughout Europe and even becoming so in parts of Asia. It has not become accepted throughout most of Africa as of yet. The concept of a peaceful transfer of power is now under attack in the United States, the nation that brought the concept to the rest of the world.
Peaceful transfer of power requires that the political elements within the country have common goals, such as the protection of freedom and independence that the United States has had over the course of our history. The political elements with the United States no longer have the preservation of individual rights above the rights of the state, that is freedom and independence of the people, which is required for a free and independent society. One of the political factions within the United States still holds the rights of the individual as Natural Rights granted by the Creator, a power that exceeds the power of the state, while the other element believes all rights are under the purview of the state.
I write about this difference in “The Road To Tyranny, Individualism to Collectivism.” Collectivism believes the people are servants of the state while Individualism believes the state is a servant of the people. These two concepts are colliding in the United States today and this collision is threatening all principles necessary to freedom including the peaceful transfer of power and the rule of law.
The collectivists, (communists, socialists, progressives) have played by a different set of standards throughout their history. The Collectivist has always lived by the axiom, “the ends justify the means.” The desired end of the collectivist is a society controlled by the state with the individual dependent upon and subservient to the almighty state; as Marx and Lenin believed and advocated, the state is god.
Many things changed in the United States recently that has brought about this open denunciation of the traditions so unique to the United States; the peaceful transfer of power and adherence to rule of law as opposed to arbitrary law where the law is changed simply by saying it has and where the law is applied differently depending on the political goals of the so-called perpetrator. The people of the United States elected a dedicated and determined communist (Marxist) to be president. This Communist believes in strict adherence to all the collectivist ideology is. This communist changed the bureaucracy into a communist style bureaucracy that believes in all that is arbitrary law including changing the law as needed by sampling restating it to mean what you need at the time and applying the law differently to people depending on their political goals and their allegiance to the collectivist ideology. This communist elected to be president also transferred the law enforcement arms of the federal government such as the DOJ, FBI, and CIA to become arms of a political party as opposed to enforcing the law of the United States under the concept of rule of law; applying the law as written and applying it uniformly regardless of social, economic, or political status of the person under investigation.
This political faction will do anything they need to do to bring about their end goal of negating The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States, The Bill of Rights, the peaceful transfer of power, the rule of law, and the abolition of all the rights of the individual as endowed to us by our Creator, to bring about their desired end of collectivism or supremacy of the state. This political faction believes anything said, anything done, and the destruction of any individual is justified so long as their goal is achieved.
Freedom, peaceful transfer of power, rule of law, and all that has made the United States a unique and great nation, are the very things that must be destroyed for the collectivists to achieve their goals. The communist that occupied the White House from 2009 to 2017 will, along with his comrades, do whatever is necessary to bring about the coup they are currently orchestrating. They have become even more vicious since their plans were so rudely interrupted by the American people in November of 2016.
