To refresh our jaded memories, here's the text of the Preamble of the Constitution of the Confederate States, adopted March 11, 1861.
We, the people of the Confederate States, each State acting in its sovereign and independent character, in order to form a permanent federal government, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Confederate States of America.
To read the rest of the historical document try the Avalon Project since, if our nations succumbs to a Rick Perry presidency, we may be cast back to the 19th century with all its social ills and backwardness as if that could possibly be a good trade for the social ills and conditions of our forcibly austere time.
Jupiter-Saturn, Financial Cycles, and Societal Ills
Now their relationship should act in a 'checks'n'balances' manner in order to protect our Democracy and the sovereignty and treasury of a US government that is invested with ruling power solely by the consent of the governed. Yet these days, a troubling, undermining behavior is shown when the GOP demands contraction of the US economy when there's a Democrat in the White House but spends like drunken sailors on imperial war and Corporate Welfare when they are the freaks at the helm.
Yet of course we know that central and transnational bankers including agents of The Fed control US Politics with politicians acting as the political arm of a global crime syndicate which is symbolized by Jupiter's tendency to incorporate and grow--precisely how America was founded, by Corporation (East India Company, plus, US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx which manipulates from afar since US natal Pluto lurks out-of-bounds from the gestalt of the rest of our national horoscope, no matter which time you use to set up a US natal chart.)
As you've perhaps heard, there are mumblings going round that big bankers of the
1860s era backed both sides of the 'Civil' War (as was their custom in other conflicts) and were determined to hold onto to the South and its agricultural and other resources in order to stop the South from becoming independent trade partners with the Caribbean region, points further south, and Europe. And naturally, given the usury creatures we're discussing, there were large loans that might not be paid back if the South had been allowed to secede, which is one level of action going on in the background of the 1860s and affecting the lead-up to war and describes the motivations of some of the actors and banking agents of those days.
Capitol Hill Washington DC circa 2011
Mundanely, it seems to me that our Capitol Hill Jupiterians (the Grand Old Party) are again using tactics of Saturnian control and austerity when social ills are on the precipice of being addressed and eased (the tension--rulers v people so let's be on guard for yet another war to be waged on borrowed dough whose interest payments will further financially enslave the American people.) Meanwhile Ds (Saturn) want to expand spending and investment (Jupiter) because government (Capricorn/Saturn) must spend when the private sector won't. So we're to believe that the Democratic Party's Jupiter function simply longs to be expressed to aid a struggling populace--but the poor things are frustrated by the Republican Party's inhibiting saturnity.
Checkmate! And we-the-people lose since those who need money for basics and other expenses are the ones who they attempt to prevent from accessing the global money tree when everyone knows that US consumer spending is what can re-float our financial boat. Obviously, there are political, financial, and other factions that don't want the US economy to rebound and have left US workers behind in an Arizona Dust Storm.
Now you may disagree with me on these things, but really, I can't see how you can given the timber of financial and political events which have transpired during the first eleven years of the New Millennium as Washington's jackassian politics spread across the land, snatching away the weak and unwary like hungry wolves at the gate.
Come to think of it, I've harangued here more than once against radical Utopians ('Uranus in Aries = Utopians'--Ebertin) entering and soon re-entering America's 4th house of Homeland, Domestic Scene, Real Estate, and Endings ('The Drain') as Big Bankers and Mortgage Interest Usurers--both here and abroad--take possession of millions of homes and properties in the US, residential and commercial. Hmm...a pattern?
