House Republicans Attempt to Stop the 2024 RED WAVE

House Republicans are asking Americans to support them as they prepare to conscript youngsters to fight the next war(s) of dubious value.  A recent bill, H. R. 8070, 14 June, 2024 demands mandatory registration for inclusion in conscription.

Americans respond…

We are Americans; we do not send others to fight our battles.  As House Republicans voted for this subversion of rights, possibly conscience, and certainly liberty and decency, they had best hope that whatever poison pills were included in that bill had better be poisonous enough.

I do not actually support a draft; it is the sign of unjust government and a weak populace.  If there comes a time when Americans know of a battle, and the battle is worth the blood of Americans, Americans will fight that battle.  To even suggest government conscript people to send to fight somebody else’s war is proof that government conscriptors are in sore need of reading, at a minimum, included below for the edification of any who may read this, the preamble to the Constitution of the united states of America:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Please allow me to explain.

We (that means I get included with you, House Republicans, and the rest of us) the people (into whom all inalienable rights and attendant powers are invested by our Creator:* Confer the Declaration of Independence) in Order to form a more perfect (meaning COMPLETE, not infallible) Union, establish Justice (again, YOU and THEY do not determine justice, I and everyone get(s) a voice and vote), insure domestic Tranquility (currently under assault by “our” government), provide for the common defense (which is primarily to defend our people and our borders), promote the general Welfare (which is not done to benefit some at the expense of others), and secure the Blessings of Liberty (liberty being anathema to conscription) to OURselves and OUR Posterity (OUR children; this time OUR isn’t the collective, but the individual; it means MINE and HIS and HERS, not YOURS) do ordain and establish this Constitution of the united states of America (the several states are free sovereign and independent nation-states, units unto themselves, (like people); read the Treaty of Paris 1783** excerpted for your convenience below).

Further, from the Declaration of Independence, a grievance against King George:  “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”  Hey House Republicans, it seems this hasn’t been fixed.  Why don’t you work on this for a while?

Now, therefore, with regard to the “Where did Republicans go wrong and lose another Red Wave” bill, I assert and I believe I may logically and decently defend my contention that H. R. 8070, 14 June, 2024 is anathema to the whole idea of America and the work of, at best, dangerous fools.  It may all be some sort of posturing that is brilliant politicking, we cannot know unless you tell us so.

Are you going to outsmart the Democrats again, Wile E Republicoyote?  It seems that the Senate Democrats were determined to not be outdone by House Republicans, regarding conscription, in constitutional overreach and maniacally stupid legislation so they matched efforts by passing a bill to require women (whom they cannot identify or define) to be eligible for conscription.  It’s too bad we only have two chambers in the legislature because, while Larry and Moe are very well represented, Curly seeks a voice.

(That is so unfair to the good-natured and beneficent Three Stooges, but I must allow it to stand.)

The Mandatory Registration for Conscription bill appears to be the work of a body of the sort which must have populated parliament in 1776; fools detached from the voice of consanguine subjects who had born ill treatment too often and no longer considered themselves subjects.  I speak for myself, but believe that many would agree with me that the REPUBLICAN members of the House of Representatives, heretofore, in my mind consanguine Americans, free, not subjects, previously thought of as home to 99% of the decent and lucid members populating that body, have shot themselves in the foot, stabbing Americans in the back.

There is only one remedy to this travesty and that is equality before the law- equity if you prefer:

The draft age must immediately be changed to age 27 (at the young end) and include up to the age of the oldest sorry-ass member of the legislature.  Also, as we old guys are too stubborn to just die, I know that you’re aching to find a way to lessen the Social Security liability, so start with the oldest member of Congress and draft downward in age if the time comes; no more old men sending young men to die. 


                          NO MORE!

Additionally, let all the sorry-assed members of the legislature who voted for this attempted usurpation of body and conscience make the case that any American should ever against their will travel off of the North American continent, (Hawaii included), (and I am being generous in not restricting to the several states only, an exception born of the notion that it is dangerous to not have a buffer state between ourselves and those with whom we (meaning usurpers in Washington DC) disagree.  But, of course, without borders there is no “ourselves.”

Thank you for reading,

*  Excerpted from Declaration of Independence:  “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”  What if we don’t consent to your pretended act of legislation regarding conscription?  If you don’t like people having the rights and the powers, take it up with the Creator.  I’ll wait.


** Excerpts from the Treaty of Paris 1783:   [The] “most potent Prince George the Third, by the grace of God, king of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith, duke of Brunswick and Lunebourg, arch‐treasurer and prince elector of the Holy Roman Empire etc” did not sign a treaty with THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA as a unit, but with “…the said United States, viz., New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, to be free sovereign and independent states…”  When the prince elector of the HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE signs a treaty, well, take note.


viz:  The abbreviation viz. (or viz without a full stop) is short for the Latin videlicet, which itself is a contraction of the Latin phrase videre licet, meaning “it is permitted to see”. It is used as a synonym for “namely”, “that is to say”, “to wit”, “which is”, or “as follows”.
