Regaining Our Reign

Sometimes, We the People, forget who owns the powers and gave "limited" amounts, with checks, balances and right of reclamation to them who think they can re-attain "Nobility" by threat of terror, by proclamation of "inherent" powers, or by other means of mental manipulation and evasion.

Here is the text in more easily discernable (and spreadable) form:

When it says "and our Posterity", that means we must have a fiscally sound and SUSTAINABLE Democracy.

We cannot pass astronomical debts to our children and grandchildren.

We cannot pretend to be "promoting the General Welfare" by polluting the air and soil, by squandering all that is left of the oil gift which Nature has bequeathed to us, and by breeding and overpopulating like greedy, planet-consuming rats.
