“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….”
These are some of the most important words in the history of mankind, a turning point in the relationship between people and governmental bodies. That last sentence is the keystone in the entire edifice. Before this point in time, a monopoly on the use of force and other advantages meant that governments ruled by decree, they were changed from time to time but the same paradigm remained.
Thomas Jefferson’s words in the Declaration of Independence changed all of that. This placed the power in the hands of the people vested with individual rights and liberties in which the people decide what are the limited and just powers of the government. While it took time to get it right, the wisdom of the people worked to fix the flaws and create an almost perfect union.
We say almost perfect union because there is a factor that is hidden but vital, and when that disappears, all of this can collapse. There has to be a moral component to our system because as we can see from recent events, without that, it all falls apart.
Consent of the governed requires a moral component
The presumption is always that everyone will play by the same set of rules. The press will strive to inform the people about both candidates and avoid propagandistic attacks. Pollsters would be scrupulous in their methodologies to avoid bias and assure accuracy.
Both parties will work to set up a fair and impartial voting system devoid of fraud. The electoral system will be open and transparent without any question that the counting of the vote was above reproach.
We now see why a lack of a moral component will cause the collapse of a government
Recent events show how all of this can fall apart, with the press actively refusing to inform the people and even being the propaganda organs for the nation’s socialist left. The left worked to change the rules and openly cheat.
Worse still, there were no real sanctions for this behavior; the left is actively working to try and steal an election. History teaches us that this will be the pattern from now on. We depended on the left to be honorable and they failed in this capacity. This means our government no longer has the consent of the governed.
Whether we want to admit to it or not, we have crossed a virtual Rubicon
Word has it that Scott Adams made the observation that the minute the left kicked out the observers, blocked their view, or simply kept them from ensuing free and fair election that we were done as one nation. These actions and many more from the past few months in the course of the election process showed they were no longer interested in obtaining the consent of the governed, but merely pretending to do so. They hoped that their minions in the misinformation media would act as a steamroller in pushing their propaganda that they had won a great victory with a ‘mandate’ to now transform the country.
The construction of this façade began with the atrocious polling and the censorship of anything negative about the left’s socialist national agenda. It continued with all kinds of the Bolshevik style BS that would have made Joseph Gobbles proud trying to convince everyone that we didn’t see the left steal an election – and they are suppressing the truth to prove it.
The problem is that all of the evidence proves them wrong. There are times when people have to avoid the truth because admitting it means they have to do something about it. History is replete with such occasions, and we are approaching one now. Many do not want to admit the left stole the election because it means they will do it again, and again. Turning away from the truth means they can avoid its dreadful implications of the moment.
Many do not want to admit the left stole the election because they have violated an unwritten but vitally scared trust. That is never to be trifled with because it is so critical to the function of our Constitutional Republic. It can no longer function under such a condition, it is only a matter of time before this is painfully obvious and there is only one solution, a ‘trial separation’ of sorts.
There is no other way out of this dire situation; the national socialist left no longer cares about the consent of the governed, only power. As that is made clear, those who value liberty will have to consider departing from the company of those who have lost the plot. It’s not a good solution by any means, but it’s the only option that makes sense.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
