A New Independence Day

"Change" for the sake of "change" is nonsense. Those who campaign on "change" do so to hide their real agenda. Every new politician is a "change" from his predecessor. We need real change. A wholesale change of our Imperial Congress.

The concern manifested in this statement by the early 19th century statesman Daniel Webster resonates all too clearly during this second presidential election year of the 21st century.

Our Congress has abandoned all constitutional restraint. It has become as distant from the concerns of the vast majority of citizens as was England's King and Parliament in the late 18th century.

Consider these issues:

There is only one "change" (in this year of "change") that might possibly save this nation from the future warned about by Daniel Webster. Each of us must become better informed and then become an agent to help others better understand that our lives are being destroyed by an Imperial Congress that does not have our interests at heart. Self-aggrandizement, personal gain, and massive hubris prevail in our Imperial Congress. The only solution can only come from an informed citizenry. We must enforce term limits by never voting for any incumbent in any future election. The notion that somehow these lawyers in Washington, DC, are anointed with some special capabilities is absurd on its face. Look at the mess they've gotten us into.

This Independence Day, take a pledge to help make our country independent from this Imperial Congress. Pledge to vote, not on the basis of Party, but on the basis of incumbency. Vote against all incumbents. We need to rid this nation of the Imperial Congress with a modern-day election revolution.

And for the sake of sanity, do not vote for "change" for president. Any candidate will be a "change" from any sitting president -- that is a given. Those who campaign on "change" are merely hiding their real agenda. Such campaigns appeal to the shallow, those citizens who seem incapable of thinking about issues and making prudent decisions. We must do our best to help educate such people so that they can help prevent the destruction warned about by Webster nearly two centuries ago.

Make election day this November our new Independence Day! Vote against all incumbents!

Biography - Bob Webster

Bob Webster, a descendant of Daniel Webster's father and early American patriot, Ebenezer Webster, has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for every high school student so they can understand the dangers of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.

A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
