The federal government is a creation of the American people. It was the representatives of the people who wrote the document creating the government and granting certain limited powers to the federal entity. The people then retained all other powers to the states (the real governments of the people) or to themselves. If the documents are read correctly, as no real politician ever wants us to do, the people are in control and the government is merely a group of our servants who are supposed to do our bidding. Therefore, it is we, the people, who are to blame for the federal government running amok. We have allowed this bloated, reckless entity to usurp our power because we trusted that it would work in our best interest. We forgot that it was exactly this sort of trust that was warned about and guarded against by our founders. Now, the federal power brokers want to abolish our God-given rights and render us powerless. If Obama puts his pen to this treaty, he has openly and notoriously taken action against the people of this great nation and should be held to account for this. We need to remember that the power lies in us and the rights we enjoy were not granted to us, but have always been ours from the beginning. No one can take them from us, but we can certainly give them away. NEVER GIVE UP THAT WHICH CANNOT OTHERWISE BE TAKEN FROM YOU!

Ok, that was my rant. Now, the main problem I see with guarding against this egregious attempt at usurpation of our rights is that we are saying that we will vehemently resist such an attempt, but we are individuals, and without cohesion. One man standing against a cohesive force is at once brave and foolish, and a force divided is a force conquered. How is this to be addressed?
