When a popular vote took over the Senate, it allowed for the internal invasion of another form of government: a corrupt democracy. By using its growing powers, the pseudo-Senate has been able to form a new judiciary along with its following corrupt law enforcement system. It has also used its mutated powers to thwart the best efforts of a constitution-abiding Executive.
"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
(Thomas Jefferson November 13, 1787, letter to William S. Smith, quoted in Padover's Jefferson On Democracy, ed., 1939)
We may have come to such a time as this.
