The Election and the Family Rights Blight

Elected officials aren’t listening where family rights are concerned. Have you noticed?

For some time, beleaguered Americans have sought a measure of legal refuge through their federal and local representatives and largely are turned aside. Those lawmakers that are favorable to fair family law while caring about what has become an abusive system of law, do little beyond posting their constituents comments on their Congressional websites. Even worse, those lawmakers are few and far between, a minority among a majority that have their minds on enriching themselves and painting a rosy picture of life for their constituents to obtain reelection.

Where the federal Bradley Amendment, abusive family and child support laws and the family rights blight on America are concerned, no review or consideration of past policy exists. No electoral campaign has mentioned positively, much less championed the plight of an abused subclass of Americans that will only decline with a declining national economy. The topic has been entirely ignored despite the desire of Americans to bring the issue to the forefront in an effort to seek some resolution.

Several opportunities have availed themselves, like the event at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church, and even religious leaders have failed to champion the needs and rights of the American family by entertaining the idea of decent law. Instead, some have contested gay rights in lieu of family issues.

The current political myopia is already evident where economic matters are concerned. Americans are embroiled in debate because the financial blight affects everyone. The political nearsightedness of lawmakers is no less startling regarding the Bradley Amendment, child support law and the systematic cooperative destruction of the American family.

Political leaders are interested chiefly in social engineering through tax law that invariably involves the Internal Revenue Service. That is the endstop and a huge means of control for government socialists that seek to force their hand. Now economic stimulus is divided through the same means. Tax law assumes that every American must be responsible for his or her own finances when the same government does everything that it can to deny that responsibility. What America has is a dichotomy that destroys the American family from both ends designed by either ignorant or malevolent politicians.

For decades Americans have been taught that if we play by the rules that we would reap significant rewards. We have been sold the fantasy of trickle-down economics as an excuse to promote Big Business and government control. Independence through personal business acumen in the small business world has been sold down the river in lieu of government monitoring and control through Big Business, payroll law and the IRS. The needs of the nuclear family, a family with a husband, wife and children, has evolved into little more than a political charade in the legal world.

There is still time to pull this country out of the political grist mill that has debilitated the American family, but time is running out. Even financial wealth has proved insufficient to keep families together under the pressure and selfishness of the nation at-large. The nation must remedy the oppression of the American family and the value that the family holds. Your voice is needed to make a difference. Contact your lawmaker and let your voice be heard. If you are ignored by an incumbent politician where your concerns are made known, vote them out of office now. Tell them that you will not hesitate to do so. Only by standing up for American civil rights guaranteed in the Constitution can this nation be reclaimed for Americans and real family life, free from legal blight and oppression. ~ E. Manning

Avoiding the Truth: Domestic Violence Abuse

by E. Manning, senior writer, family rights advocate and retired economist

Because of many mandatory state arrest laws, police officers are strongly encouraged to make arrests on domestic violence 911 calls, even though many of these “emergency” calls do not involve geniune violence of any kind. Further, because of the “primary aggressor doctrine,” police officers are strongly encouraged to arrest men rather than women.

The plight of the family also involves “no drop” prosecution policies, where prosecutors move forward with cases that contain so little evidence that the case would never be prosecuted if it were any other “crime.” In the words of Glenn Sacks, domestic violence has become a political crime and that “crime” is handled in a political manner by authorities in charge.

Glenn Sacks also makes the case that men often plea-bargain so-called “family violence” cases by accepting battering treatment programs because they need to get out of jail and because they cannot afford to fight the case legally. The inability to hire or afford an attorney to secure ordinary citizens rights is just one travesty of Bradley Federal Law and punitive actions against men in the name of law.

The law has made it easy for a man to lose all of his rights where his children are concerned with an angry wife holding all the cards. The motivations of the angry wife are rarely, if ever, questioned. The result is that millions of men every year unjustly lose rights to their own children.

The fact is that Democrats have personally penned many of these Federal policies with the idea of personal and political empowerment. However, all politicians have proved to be entirely weak-kneed when it comes to standing up for the correct idea of family rights. While Barack Obama has announced his views which stand alongside the Democratic platform, John McCain, like his predecessor George Bush, has avoided breaching the topic for any reason. Even Pastor Rick Warren missed the opportunity to bring up the importance of the family as an issue. As a result, the issue of real family rights has become the largest election non-issue in recent history.

Politics has proved interest in its own empowerment rather than a real interest in preserving the importance of the family, often referred to in archaic terms as the “nuclear family.” The archaic title seems fitting as politicians seem hellbent on “nuclear annihilation” of the single institution that still binds this country as a cohesive unit. ~ E.
