Franklin Delano Roosevelt
To the Congress of the United States:
Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, 1 hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam.
Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.
Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island.
This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.
Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our Nation.
As Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.
Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us.
No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people, in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory.
I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.
Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.
With confidence in our armed forces—with the unbounded determination of our people—we will gain the inevitable triumph—so help us God.
I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.
Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The White House,December 8, 1941.
December 8th is also the 70th anniversary since America last declared war under constitutional law.
This December 2011 saw America’s newest declaration of war around constitutional law
The Legislature of the United States of America has failed their constitutional duty.
They have surrendered their oath to manage trade with other nations over to the IMF.
They have surrendered their oath to secure and produce the nations currency over to the Federal Reserve Bank.
They have surrendered their oath to declare lawful war over to the Executive Branch and UN credibility.
They have surrendered their oath to over see the enforcement of government policy and institution over to Presidential Police State.
They have surrendered their oath to defend the equity, justice and local authority of the public domain over to multinational corporate special interests
They have surrendered their oath to govern, debate, propose and represent the electoral public over to the Super Congress of 13.
Indeed because of this the entire Federal Government has become nearly unrecognizable as a national government protectorate of, for and by the personal Freedom, Liberty and Justice of all.
The Federal Department of Homeland Security has destroyed the states domain, authority and jurisdiction of policing and securing the safety of the citizenry.
The idea of the Homeland, which did not exist before the world trade center was burned, has completely conquered the thought and reality of Personal Rights, Statehood, of States Rights and the United States of America.
Federalization is surrendering our national sovereignty.
It is able to do this because it has destroyed the power inherent in sovereign statehood and the fundamental natural rights of being human.
The states must each stand for their own liberty, justice and freedom, by maintaining their sovereignty, policy and enforcement.
1. Remove all preemptory government regulations of all the professions and businesses.
2. Cut taxes to the bone, when possible totally abolish them.
3. Cut all subsidies and protectionist measures.
4. Eliminate all minimum wage laws.
5. Close down all the alphabet soup agencies (a corollary of #1).
6. Sell off all government properties that do not relate to the military defense of the country.
7. Abolish the war on drugs.
8. Abolish all blue laws, everywhere (including states, counties, and municipalities).
9. Stop all non-defensive military endeavors.
10. Basically and most generally, follow the edict of the Declaration of Independence where it assigns to government the job of securing the basic rights of the citizenry.
American Feel Goodism – Going to Weekly Church ‘Service’ – Faith without Works is Dead
I have nothing against an awareness walk, a fundraising marathon, a communal sporting event or even a reality television show (with some personal qualifiers).
I only see a large expenditure of energy that is wasted or at least not put to a definitive use or real gain. That energy cold be spent in a way that is just as entertaining, just as inspiring and would also accomplish a gain that is a positive net gain and permanent or at least long in lasting effect.
Let us take a Marathon that is run for funding research or a cure of some such malady.
There is an initial investment and down payment to schedule the event in a city and this covers the costs to begin the initial planning, ads, notices, permits etc.
Every runner has an entrance fee and often run hundreds of miles in training to prepare for the event, with days of training and energy.
On the day of there is the tremendous cost as the city is shut down, police, traffic, business loss, the mess and cleanup, etc.
Let us instead make our marathon a Repairathon for the Same Malady and the same funding for the same research or cure.
Instead of running individuals would clean, repair, mend and beautify the community.
Competition Repairathoners would signup and have an entrance fee. Volunteers cold participate for free and serve as assistants doing the lifting and prep work for the competition Repairathoners specific tasks.
They would start at a given point and have direction and boundaries in which to work. They would work night and day, until the last person/group was standing.
The Entrance fee and initial donations would go to setup as well as supplies and expendables for the event.
With additional Sponsorships, Contributions and Donations from Engineers, Artists, Designers, Architects, Contractors, Public Works and Land, Businesses and Individuals, the results for the community trust and public domain at the end of the event would astounding; cheering on the last few workers after 78 straight hours of hammering up shingles, painting and repairing; cheering the 3 square miles of new beautiful neighborhood and community trust.
As such I also have nothing against organized sports or religions; and individuals going to the weekly church service, in which, those in real need are not necessarily served. I have nothing against taking a day of the week to calmly reflect, relax and refocus spiritual faith and principled direction.
What if that congregation were also to work together for an hour or two or three a week, repairing the Widow Jones’ house or cleaning out that vacant lot? That hour of a hundred hands with good work and deed affirming faith.
To Know Good indeed.
What if the 80,000 attendees and the millions of Monday Night Football viewers Did something when they watched. All they would have to do is Watch Outside or Listen on the Radio, Together with $20.00 of free hotdogs and any neighbors that want to stop by and enjoy the game.
What if those millions Created a Real Community Trust with our Great American past times? What if we used the bread and circus to come together, to find our Front Porch and to unite over the game, the event and not divide over the winners and losers or choose the biggest, widest screen and softest chairs?
The Justice, Honor, Equity, Service and Integrity of Our Republic of the United Stated of America, lies not in the Faith of Freedom, the Belief in Liberty or the Show of Power.
It lies instead in the Works of the Individuals of the Public, Under Affirmation and Duty, to be Diligent in overseeing, in Checking and in Balancing, to be faithful in Securing the Justice, Honor, Equity, Service and Integrity of Our Re Public.
We alone can ensure that the Sacred Private Individual Is Protected Above All, to Pursue Personal Happiness and Sovereign Prosperity.
I require action.
I judge not what is said but by what is done.
I am my vote, I am sovereign, I am Free
