Very good Selwyn! It looks to me like Honduras is a healthy constitutional republic; a far cry from ours. Ours has morphed into a faux-republic, with the executive order, the unprecedented appointment of Czars, "policy from the bench" justices like Judge Soto and the ever so powerful "Administrative branch of government," as Mark Levin summarized it well in his book "Liberty and Tyranny." Perhaps the day the first executive order was handed down our joint chiefs should have stood up and said, not so fast Mr. President, we are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution, and by your very title as an Executive you are outside your authority.

Not only has our Constitutional Republic been circumvented by the leftists so has our means of representative selection; the democratic election. It has turned into a farcical display that Teheran and pre-'90 Moscow would have been delighted with. We have a distracted decadent populous whose world view and subsequent voting is steered by a Pravda-esque media and a Hollywood that would make Hitler proud. Of course beyond the shapers of world view we have the direct usurpers of democracy like ACORN, the defenders of "no-ID's required to vote" crowd and the local efforts of corrupt voting practices and such that rear up from Broward county to Washington state; many organized by big labor. Now, it is not beyond imagination, to foresee with a stroke of our “Dear Leader’s” pen we may have an additional 12 to 20 million people (illegal immigrants) added to our voting roles as a supreme act of humanity, fairness and decency, to a poor and oppressed people. A people oppressed by their own government as we cower from policies that might have forced Mexico off the path of third world corruption. But that is another diatribe all together.

Although all of these examples are a recipe for a faux-democracy, the 17th Amendment to the Constitution was probably the worst assault on the Republic of all. Before the 17th, Senators were elected by the State representatives rather than the populous. It is a state representatives job to, have a touch on his constituent’s desires and spend much of their lives researching the complex issues; things “Joe six pack” does not have time nor perhaps the intellect or desire to learn. It was the wisest of all representatives (US Senators) to be elected by the wisest of the citizens (the state representatives). Today a senate seat is decided by who can spent the most, who controls the media message and, if you happen to be a republican, if you can keep your pants zipped up or your feet from tapping as you unload your daily grind. Our Constitutional Republic is a sad little puppet show.

Sorry for the long post but just one more thing. Selwyn mentioned the term “fellow traveler” in his article. This reminded me of a book I finished a few weeks back, that may well be one of the most important books of our time. The book is “United in Hate” by Jamie Glazov. This book is very UNLIKE the regular “hot list ” conservative books like Liberty and Tyranny, 5000 Year leap and Common Sense (all good as well). This book is a shocking expose’ on leftism and what makes the believers so freaking insane. If you have a weak stomach or a lukewarm desire for liberty you should not read this book.

You’ve got a dandy little lesson built into your article! But, no mention of the really important thing: Keeping the Honduran population south of Guatemala and not standing in the parking lot of your local building supply store.

My propers to Selwyn for another outstanding article. Selwyn Duke is a refreshing fountain for articulating logic and morality.

I am presently reading an excellent book by Professor Ellis Washington. It is called "The Nuremberg Trails: Last Tragedy of the Holocaust".

In this outstanding book, Professor Washington expounds on the difference between Positive Law (based on man-made jurisprudence) and Natural Law (the law of nature and of nature's God).

To make this mistake, as was done by the Nuremberg Tribunal, is to abandon sound logic, reason and its source: God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is in them.
