Articles: War!

America is now at war. It is a civil war, but no shots will be fired. It's a war over the Constitution, yet it will be through the Constitution that the winner will be determined.

The opponents in this war are not Republicans against Democrats. This war is between the American people and their government. Some of the American people, though, will choose -- have chosen -- sides with the government.

Too many Republicans have sided wrongly in this war. They justify their choice by calling themselves "compassionate conservatives," and such.

The government has many advantages over the people in this war. It has the authority to make law -- the very rules of this war. Government is legislator, prosecutor and judge, yet it is a contestant, too. Our government has clearly shown its contempt and disregard for the rule of law. In other words, our government cheats.

Obama doesn't merely cheat; he plays dirty.

Another advantage that the government has is the power to tax. As we saw today with the ObamaCare decision, the government institutes fines and calls them taxes, all in the name of "complying" with the Constitution. Our government lies.

Government routinely violates our First Amendment, Second Amendment, Fourth Amendment, Fifth Amendment and many rights endowed on us by our Creator. Government cannot take them from us. Our government steals.

This war can only be won by the people through the very Constitution over which we fight.
