On this broadcast of Samuel Adams Returns – The Anti-federalist Got It Right, I continue the discussion of how the Senate is now a part of democracy and not the Republic to which it was intended. Then I get into a real sore spot, Treaties and International Executive Agreements. De Tocqueville wrote that if tyranny would engross America, it would a ‘soft despotism” that arose through elected administrators. For over 100 years we have been electing administrators over statesmen, socialism entered into this nation since the early 1800’s and infiltrated the core principles of We the People so that most do not have the concept of what Foundational Liberty is about.
Hence we have had since the 1930’s International Executive Agreements at a ratio of almost 20:1 over treaties that have established that ‘soft despotism’ and stripped us of our individual and national sovereignty, making us serfs in the globalist dream.
