Powerful Presidents Are Incompatible with Liberty

This article was originally published by Ron Paul at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. 

The mainstream media has declared former Vice President Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election. However, this does not mean the 2020 Presidential campaign has come to an end. President Donald Trump is continuing his legal challenges to the vote counts in some key states.

The emotional investment of many Americans into the race between Trump and Biden would have shocked the drafters of the Constitution. The Constitution’s authors intended the presidency to be an office of strictly limited powers that would not impact most Americans. The Constitution authorizes the president to administer laws passed by Congress, not create laws via executive orders. The president serves as Commander-in-Chief of the military following a Congressional declaration of war, with no authority to unilaterally send troops into foreign conflict.

The Founders did not intend for the president to set the “national agenda, “ and they would be horrified to see modern presidents assume the authority to order American citizens indefinitely detained and even killed without due process.

The idea that the president should exercise almost unlimited powers is a legacy of the progressive movement. Progressives, who are responsible for the rise of the American welfare-warfare state, have an affinity for a strong Presidency that is not surprising. A government that aspires to run our lives, run the economy, and run the world requires a strong executive branch unfettered by the Constitution’s chains. The Cold War also provided a boost to presidential power, as it justified presidents assuming more unchecked authority in the name of “national security.”

The concentration of power in the executive branch does not mean presidents are all-powerful. For example, even though presidents are judged by the state of the economy, the unelected, unaccountable Federal Reserve Board typically has greater influence over the economy then the president. Presidents often must tailor their economic policies to deal with the consequences of the Fed’s actions. This is why presidents spend so much time and energy trying to influence the “non-political” Fed. Fed Chairs usually, but not always, reciprocate by attempting to tailor polices to be “useful” to the incumbent president.

It has become cliché to say that “politics stops at the water’s edge.” This means no one—not even Members of Congress, should ever oppose or second-guess a president’s foreign policy decisions. However, this rule does not apply to those comprising what has become popularly known as the “deep state”: the military-industrial complex, the national security bureaucracy—including the CIA— congressional staffers, and members of the media. This deep state serves a permanent government and has an agenda it pursues regardless of the wishes of the president or the American people.

The deep state has derailed President Trump’s (modest) efforts to fulfill his campaign promise to pursue a less interventionist foreign policy and end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Members of the deep state were instrumental in the Russiagate hoax and the impeachment of President Trump. Many supported impeachment because President Trump’s actions contradicted the DC “consensus” on US -Ukraine relations and the need for a new Cold War with Russia. President Trump is not the first president to be undermined by the deep state and he will certainly not be the last.

The 2020 election has awoken many Americans to the corruption of the modern welfare-warfare state. These Americans are ripe for the message of liberty. They can help with the vital task of demystifying the US Presidency, destroying the deep state, restoring our constitutional republic, and regaining our lost liberties.

      I don’t think Americans would be greatly disturbed by mass hangings. In the old days they sang hymns at the gallows and had family picnics.

      The illegal unconstitutional lockdowns foreshadow America’s future, and the reality that it refuses to face, even the house is guaranteed to lose without customers, with MGM shutting business operations Monday-Thursday after a 61% decline in revelenues YoY after the Health Scare Scamdemic and the financially destabilizing effects of it on customers. The 14th amendment prohibits states from violating the individuals consitutional rights, but it happened none the less. Nobody stopped it. The executive Branch did not stop it, the FBI did not stop it, the Judicial Branch did not stop it, and we know for damned sure that the media insisted on it and riled people into a hyper-paranoid, state of hypochandria all based on scientific and medical fraud in a conspiracy to commit treason, fraud, and deprive people of life, limb, and property in order to cover for the financial fraud conspiracy that they were also involved in. Conspiracy to commit fraud is Business as Usual in America, and is why America is failing like it is, and has been since all of the deregulation that started in 1993 in the financial, corporate, and government sectors, prior to that was EO 12333 in 1981 which is a confession of high crimes and treason that the presidents have used to illegally experiment on people without their consent or knowledge, and to spy on them for the purpose of procurement. EO 12333 is one of the most abusive and least referrenced surveillance state abuses that surpasses all of them. It must stop. It is illegal. The constitution is quite clear.

      The hacking retard won’t stop hacking my posts! Typical American! America will always suck, because of Americans. Most are corrupt, retarded, psychopathic, losers, which I did not find out until 2014.

      Bill Gates who is not a doctor, and has no ,edical training has sponsored Pfizers dangerous messenger RNA vaccine that reprograms the bodies own DNA, to do what over a lifespen is a complete unknown, but you are pkaying with fire if you attempt it, because you were created with the DNA that you have for biological reasons, spiritual reasons, or both. This advertisement below alleges that m-RNA vaccine will train the coronavirus to enter cells in order for the cells to create a spike protein, which happens naturally but that is not disclosed. Bill Gates said “that it kind of turns your body into its own manufacturing system.” But the body already is its own manufacturing system, which can be demonstrated since the fetal stage, growing into adults, manufacturing all of the cells that are required for growth, with cells dying off and being replaced by the body totally on its own, without a conscious consideration, all the way through life. Every cell that is currently in your body today will be completely gone in seven years. You will be who you are, even though you do not have any of tne same cells that you had seven years ago.

      The m-RNA vaccine has the potential to increase the likelihood of a cytokine storm, where the body attacks itself in an effort to fight off the disease. Bill Gates is not a doctor. I am not either, but I do have more medical qualifications than Bill Gates does since I was a care giver, and I am not attempting to sell a product for profit to the world either, like a charlatan, which is what Bill Gates is by precise definition – someone without any expertise that claims to be able to cure people for a profit. Bill Gates also has Munchausen’s Syndrome, and poses a grave danger to society and really ought to be locked up for it where he can no longer impose his non-expert medical will on the world. People with Munchausen’s syndrome are severely disturbed and dangerous psychopaths, and they deliberately induce illnesses in their victims and have resorted to intentionally poisoning their victims to create symptoms. People with Munchausen’s syndrome have been parents that have done it to their own children, and people in the medical profession that have done it to their patients, and of course, the CIA, as if that last one would surprise anyone!

    6. The average American citizens has no idea of the words “nonintervention” and “isolation’. Anytime a President’s policy is non-intervention the media screams isolationist. Then the media wonders why the rest of the world hate us? The greatest stupidity yet was GW Bush wanting to export “democracy” to an Islamic nation that wants an Islamic theocracy. We are still losing that war twenty years later.

      • Bill says:

        James – a great and most important post, there was a time when isolationism was the norm. A superb basis for American non-intervention was propounded way back in a quote by George Washington, it can be found easily on-line. (The nation of his day had three and one-half million people, we now have almost 100 times that, but have nothing of the caliber of people then, and frankly, could not accomplish what they did.)
        I believe most people today want an end to all the wars and endless war making policies, but the people are so propagandized, and so thoroughly misinformed that they really don’t know what to think (MSM is completely compromised, it aids in subverting the people). Pres. Reagan’s intel director stated his job was successful when everything the Amer. people believe is false. The effort to keep people misinformed is official policy.
        The nation is actually controlled by politicians with secret agendas, factions, special interests groups, and other entities with concealed names and faces and motives.
        For example, one faction are what some call neo-cons, who are ceaselessly acting in opposition to the interests of the American people, and in behalf of Israel. How much American blood must be spilled, or American treasure must be spent, solely to keep the region in turmoil to help the Israeli effort to attain a greater regional hegemony. I’ve read they have many even grander ideas and goals in their agenda. Probably the highest most overarching, primary goal of a number of these entities is to permanently alter the demography and culture of America.
        The American people are being lied to so profoundly, and are so distracted by bread and circuses, it is almost impossible to really understand what is going on. Regardless of what entity or group it is, and what goal they have, the American people are viewed as nothing more than disposable managed resources.
        Most people don’t know this, but one time the US was viewed more favorably than any other nation. The main reason will surprise most – it was missionaries. The US had more missionaries abroad performing more to help the in the progress of humanity, than all other nations combined. There were American missionaries in every nook and crannie of the world at one time (and many British). Missionaries from the US started going abroad in large numbers almost immediately after the founding of our country, and continued well into the 20th century. The work they performed, the progress they made, and the good will they created was incalculable. But it’s all long squandered away decades ago. It is now due to the policies that officialdom has implemented is why we are so hated.
        The propaganda we are “exporting democracy” is a contrived term used to sell the idea to the American people in justifying intervention.

    7. “The mainstream media has declared former Vice President Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election.”

      Since the [US] election for President has not happened yet, how can there be a “winner”?

      Excellent article that actually shows that the author has read the US Constitution that is the contract that those who serve within our governments – state and federal – are bound by Oath to support and defend. The person who serves as a US President has a different Oath that requires them to “Preserve, Protect, and Defend” the US Constitution.

      Breaking the constitutionally required Oaths(s) is perjury [U.S. Code § 1621. Perjury]. Miles v. State: “… Perjury corrupts and defiles the stream of justice.”

      Four elements must be present for perjury to be a crime: an oath, intent, falsity, materiality.

      Many Americans forgot or were never taught that it is the people who must know what those who serve within our governments are doing at all times, not those gov. representatives OF the people who must know what Americans are doing.

      John Adams, from A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law (1765): “Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right… and a desire to know; but besides this, they have a right, and indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean of the characters and conduct of their rulers.”

      Yes, all the spying by those who serve within our governments – state and federal, are crimes against the American people, and actions being taken to destroy from within [knowingly or unknowingly] our constitutional republic. Because there are those who took the Oath, and are bound by it, yet have never read it is criminal action on their part. Our Oath[s] requires that every single person who serves within our government be personally responsible for the US Constitution itself, not a person, not a position within government, not an office of government, but responsible for our US Constitution. It is another separation of powers within our government that makes each individual, regardless of the position occupied, responsible for our constitutional republic.

      I would be proud of a powerful president, aligned with my own, frugal, personal value system — dirt-simple, utilitarian, fiscal conservative.

      Though, I am worldly-enough to see how many Democrat plantations are run, locally.

    9. cranerigger says:

      To the young TEMPER TANTRUM CROWD. Demonrat leaders are frequently the folks that get the USA into wars. Look for a weak Biden Presidency to lead to the same result. That decision affects young people because they are the people predominantly executing our war-fighting-efforts. Look for a DRAFT (this is a new word for you – look it up – you won’t like the definition) as a reward for supporting a poor Presidential choice.

    10. Darth Skippy says:

      This looks like a continuation of 3 generations of leftist, domestic terrorism, after the last administration told us to wait and wait for the multidimensional chess game to play out and who asked whether we were tired of winning.

      Every gutter, port-a-potty, trash can, and building project, anything not nailed down, any piece of infrastructure, shows where they have passed through — those who we’ve had 4yrs to prosecute, who’ve been given room to destroy over the last 4yrs, and who remain free during the last critical hours.

    11. cranerigger says:

      The Constitution laid out the STRUCTURE of our Federal Government (a Republic) as 3 CO-EQUAL branches. The Founders intended a LIMITED Federal Government, not the Blob (always expanding) as depicted in an old Steve McQueen science fiction movie. Most issues were to be addressed by local governments as with “states rights”.

      The move toward socialism/communism & eventual one-world-govt. continues to destroy our nation.
