The End of American Independence Day

Politics / US Politics Jul 01, 2013 - 02:13 PM GMT

By: BATR

Politics

The 4th of July should be a day of historic retrospection. For a proper understanding into the significance of the birth of the nation, start with an examination of the perennial BREAKING ALL THE RULES essay, The Meaning of Independence Day. Then contrast our circumstances and heritage in the article - Independence Day for Whom? Both of these columns are essential. If one forgets from where, how and why our country was created, it is impossible to appreciate the uniqueness of the American Revolution and the meaning of the "shot heard ‘round the world".


A provoking account of The Original and Real Cause of the American Revolution - What They Really Fought For, presents the following historical story, taken from a radio address given by Congressman Charles G. Binderup of Nebraska, some 50 years ago and reprinted in Unrobing the Ghosts of Wall Street: 

Before the American War for Independence in 1776, the colonized part of what is today the United States of America was a possession of England. It was called New England, and was made up of 13 colonies, which became the first 13 states of the great Republic. Around 1750, this New England was very prosperous. Benjamin Franklin was able to write:

"There was abundance in the Colonies, and peace was reigning on every border. It was difficult, and even impossible, to find a happier and more prosperous nation on all the surface of the globe. Comfort was prevailing in every home. The people, in general, kept the highest moral standards, and education was widely spread." 

When Benjamin Franklin went over to England to represent the interests of the Colonies, he saw a completely different situation: the working population of this country was gnawed by hunger and poverty. "The streets are covered with beggars and tramps," he wrote. He asked his English friends how England, with all its wealth, could have so much poverty among its working classes.His friends replied that England was a prey to a terrible condition: it had too many workers! The rich said they were already overburdened with taxes, and could not pay more to relieve the needs and poverty of this mass of workers. Several rich Englishmen of that time actually believed, along with Mathus, that wars and plague were necessary to rid the country from man-power surpluses.Franklin's friends then asked him how the American Colonies managed to collect enough money to support their poor houses, and how they could overcome this plague of pauperism. Franklin replied:

"We have no poor houses in the Colonies; and if we had some, there would be nobody to put in them, since there is, in the Colonies, not a single unemployed person, neither beggars nor tramps." 

His friends could not believe their ears, and even less understand this fact, since when the English poor houses and jails became too cluttered, England shipped these poor wretches and down-and- outs, like cattle, and discharged, on the quays of the Colonies, those who had survived the poverty, dirtiness and privations of the journey. At that time, England was throwing into jail those who could not pay their debts. They therefore asked Franklin how he could explain the remarkable prosperity of the New England Colonies. Franklin replied:

"That is simple. In the Colonies, we issue our own paper money. It is called 'Colonial Scrip.' We issue it in proper proportion to make the goods pass easily from the producers to the consumers.   In this manner, creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power and we have no interest to pay to no one." 

The central struggle that has plagued the fledgling country between true independence and a spin off version of British mercantilism has persisted since 1776. In the beginning: Let there be the Articles of Confederation presents the background on the fundamental reason for fighting the American Revolution; namely, independence - the essence of Inherent Autonomy. The Articles of Confederation was Preferable argues, "Only a systemic dismantling of that central government, returning primacy back to individual states will restore the vision of the American Revolution".

The conflict between the Federalists supremacy of Alexander Hamilton and the vision of Thomas Jefferson’s Revolution, has continued to this day. "Jefferson’s passion for a restrained central government was a core principle foreseen as a primary reason for separation from England. His concept of an independent and self-reliant society was abandoned with the rush to regiment a flawed national identity".

Deplorably, the Federalists took control and forced their replica model of central government despotism upon a disjointed society. Andrew Jackson is an America hero because he opposed a fiat currency, issued by a National Bank, and an all-powerful central government. Compare his legacy to the archetype tyrant Abraham Lincoln.

The brilliant thinker, Thomas DiLorenzo in his account, Why Neocons Are Freaking Out Over Lincoln, makes a contemporary analogy that illustrates the betrayal of the spirit of the American Revolution. The conquest of vicious tyranny, institutionalized with the union victory in the "War of Northern Aggression", has ruled ever since.

"One of the clearest examples of the importance the neocons assign to the Lincoln legend in supporting never-ending war is a small book by an American Enterprise Institute neocon named Walter Berns. His book is entitled Making Patriots. In an important chapter on Lincoln mythology Berns bemoans the fact that too many of today’s youth are too hesitant to join in the neocons’ crusades to overthrow governments in place like Syria, Lebanon, Iran, North Korea, and elsewhere. They are too selfish and self-centered, says Berns, being so preoccupied with their own education, careers, and families. They must be mesmerized into the fascist/neocon militaristic mindset by some kind of "national poet," says Walter Berns. "Fortunately," he says, we already have such a "poet" in the political rhetoric of Abraham Lincoln. "Making Cannon Fodder" would thus be a more appropriate title for Berns’ book."

The egomaniacal presidencies of Theodore Roosevelt, Woodward Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt, all fermented an internationalist empire, is the antithesis of the original purpose of the founding of the country. Independence is dead, because the nation is no longer a republic of sovereign states. Even those who dismiss the superiority of the Articles of Confederation and proclaim primary allegiance to the U.S. Constitution must concede that the "Bill of Rights" no longer exists. In its place is a system of bureaucratic treason dominated by the power of fiat debt money. That "happier and more prosperous nation on all the surface of the globe" now reduced to a society where "The streets are covered with beggars and tramps", has no sensible reason to celebrate the imperium regime. The End of Independence Day is upon us. However, our solemnization of the American Revolution remains. The traditional conservative America First populism that is our heritage goes unheeded by most citizenry. It seems illogical that people will continually endorse or even give rudimentary support to a system that is lethally hostile to individual liberty. Nonetheless, that is exactly the state of affairs that we live underneath, with no reasonable expectation of altering constitutionally.

Independence, both personal and juristically are tagged as terrorist defiance. Accountability of arrogant autocrats goes unpunished.

An American Renaissance Revolution is the solution. "In order to fulfill the objectives of 1776, the original conflict must finish the task that was never completed. Western Civilization is worth saving. Our true cultural heritage must survive. And secular humanism needs to be cast into the pit of hell fire."

Can you afford many more years of betrayal? The 1776 declaration stands for liberty.

The commentary, No Despotism - Only Independence espouses the case for self-rule.

"The answer to defeat despotism is found in the revelation of INDEPENDENCE. While not a perfect guarantee for victory or a formula to replace a fallen human nature; autonomy among your own similar kind, is the inherent right for governance. Independence is the antidote to despotic corruption. Relief from mob lunacy, under the domination of gangster direction, is found in the model of an authentic Republic."

Regular readers are familiar with numerous examples of government subversion. Any bystander intuitively knows that the system no longer works for the average American. However, countless citizens still want to cheer for a government that long ago forfeited any legitimacy. How strange a society that champions wars and plague as necessary to rid the country from man-power surpluses. What has changed among the Lordly elites from the colonial era?

It is ironic that Congressman Charles G. Binderup emigrated with his parents from Denmark, understood the nature of the American experience, while legions of government-schooled clones are so clueless.

The globalists that control the political apparatus are dedicated anti-liberty fascists. The corporatists of today are English Crown Tory descendants, no matter their origin. The death lyric of independence is the choir in the requiem hymn of the Republic. Ben Franklin’s jubilate assessment, has witnessed the methodical destruction of the spirit of Independence Day with each succeeding year.
