Are We Ruled by Our Constitution or the Elite Group in the Usa?

It is August 4, 2022-It has been ten years since this was originally written. Our leader forgot to lead by the constitution.

Update August 4, 2022

Our country has faced many sad and terrifying events since 2012. If you are an American, then you are aware.

Neither political party can claim victory in making our country better. It has become clear that the party members have their own agendas.

Not everyone in either party is against the United States of America and its people. I believe there is a secret society among members of the Elite group that might be the only ones that love our country.

I am not impressed by either party. We Americans are watching, and we know who is pulling the strings on the White House puppets.

There are many in power who believe they are above the law, and I am here to tell you they might be right. I do not see any lawmakers demanding justice for the brazen actions of people who know better.

It is sad that respect has left the premises of the White House and curled up like a serpent in the back garden, living its own life of choice.

We need a miracle in our government to restore normalcy to American life, where we can afford to buy healthy food instead of the cheapest, and to be able to afford gas to visit our families.

I pray for all who are trying to make American lives better and for the evil serpent to leave our country.

Are American Jobs Still Outsourced? Written in 2012

American companies are still outsourcing American jobs. Does this make you ponder if America is still being run by the Constitution of the United States of America, which was signed by our forefathers on September 17, 1787, in Philadelphia?

Pennsylvanians are now turning over in their graves at the asinine way Congress members are destroying our country.

What has been done to bring back American companies so all Americans can once again find employment? There are so many unanswered questions. Just who is running the Congress?

Who are the Elite? Written in 2012

My Daddy always said: "Baby, remember that money talks and bull &*%$ walks." Well, I have concluded that the top 2% of the wealthiest in the United States of America—who will not have their taxes raised—are the same 2% that are calling the shots in our government. Are the wealthiest 2% of Americans the Elite Group?

Who are the elite? They are a small group that controls an unequal amount of wealth and/or political power. Therefore, it would be a normal conclusion that all USA Presidents would be sent an invitation to this "secret elite club." We're left wondering how many accepted or declined the invitation.

Constitution or Elite Group--Written in 2012

So I ask you again: are we being governed by our Constitution or the Elite Group? Do your research, Americans—we need to know who is attacking our way of life. Is our worst enemy our own American Elite Group? It is the rich who are getting richer, and the unemployed with no jobs are getting poorer.

It makes one wonder if the elite are true Americans or Communists. In the absence of an open war, it seems we still have a secret war within our shores. Remember the saying, "The Pen is Mightier than the Sword," and deals are cut and signed in secret for the rich to get richer by outsourcing American jobs. This continues today, even after the election of President Obama. What is he doing about it? Well, you will need to tell me, because my "Crystal Ball" is muddy and so far I cannot forecast the future.

President John F. Kennedy--Written in 2012

It was our President John F. Kennedy who spoke against secret societies. His speeches are from a brave man who told us about how dangerous secret societies were within our government. Was this one of the reasons he was killed? Was John F. Kennedy our last good president who cared about the American people? His speeches were the best I have ever heard from a president, besides my favorite, President Lincoln.

Masonic Symbol

Masonic Symbol

The Masonic Society was founded in 1717 in London (written in 2012). 

My grandfather Knight and my ancestors before him were Masons, and I learned at a very young age how Masons helped each other. It was never spoken about when they met, but I watched how they shook hands, and it was different. I was such an inquisitive little girl.

My grandfather called me Miss Snoop, but I knew a lot of what went on in my grandfather’s world. He helped many people because he was a farmer and had extra to give to neighbors in need. But he never mentioned it when he assisted or to whom anything was given.I loved the Masons then and still do today, as my beloved cousin is one.

I know members need the following to belong: a good reputation, a good family provider, and a good American who helps others.

Secret Societies in our Government--Written in 2012

So, the way I see it, any "secret society" that controls our government is against the Constitution of the United States of America. Therefore, we need to do more research.

Who is the Elite Group concerned about? Is it their money? Is it their country? Is it the American people? Is the United States their homeland? Is their money in American banks? Did their children fight for our country?

Who controls Congress? Who controls our government? Is it "We the People?" Are we sliding straight into the second "Civil War" in our country? Do we still have good, honest people in Congress? Is our President a good and honest man? What are we to do?

So, I close by asking, "Is our government governed by the Constitution or by the Elite Group?" I fear for my baby nieces and nephews, for our country now and in the future, and for all American babies in our great country today. Am I wrong to be so concerned?

Nice to have you visit and comment. I will be happy to read your hub. You have a great weekend.

RBJ33 on March 16, 2013:

Hey Bobbi - just discovered you - nice hub and great questions. You know Abe Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address said in part "Government of the people by the people" - we have let the "by the people" get away from us. We need to get in the game - I invite you, and all your commentors, to read my hub "Apathy - is that any way to run a country?" and consider being involved in "by the people"

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on January 20, 2013:

We have failed and everyone should know this by now.Thanks for your comment---it is one of the best ones I have receive on this subject of the Elite. Thanks for your time in answering and I am sure others will appreciate your point of view.


Bobbi Purvis

Scott Belford from Keystone Heights, FL on January 20, 2013:

Great hub, Bobbi, your points are well taken and expressed. In reviewing the comments I saw one that has a familiar Reaganesque refrain, "the government is part of the problem" (Reagan was more blunt by leaving out "part of"). The phrase never sat well with me and finally I figured it out ... because you got me thinking about the Constitution. Given the way America is established, an equivalent phrase to the one above is "the People are part of the problem" since, in America, the People are the government, therefore the substitution is appropriate.

People talk about "the government" as if it were something alien, something separate from them, and pretty odious at that. Well, pull out your pocket Constitution and give it a read; you will find that you gave birth to "the government", it is your child.

That wasn't what I wanted to say as a comment, but, the inspiration was there so ...

What I wanted to do was point out a couple of things that might color your take on such a broad indictment. One is that those who wrote the Constitution and ran the government for a very long time, at least until Andrew Jackson, were the elite you are talking about; almost to a man, they looked down their noses at and did not trust Joe Sixpack. If you didn't own land, you were basically a person without rights, you weren't included in the group spoken of in the Declaration of Independence. It wasn't until the 1964 Civil Rights Act did all humans in America finally become emancipated.

Another is that the elite are a fact of life, they won't go away and, in fact, you don't want them to. Because they are going to be around, the trick is to control them.

Finally, the elite are necessary, they make the world go around, whether we like it or not. They have the wherewithall, the intelligence, the power, the vision, etc to make big things happen. How do they make them happen? By organizing and using people like us.

It is our collective job to make sure they do that fairly and appropriately without becoming dictators. The way we do that is elect the right people to federal office; and we are failing, miserably.

Hi web923,

My distain with our government sometimes inundates my better judgment and I write the obvious---at least to me it is. Thanks for reading it.

Bill Blackburn from Twentynine Palms, California on January 02, 2013:

"Is Our Government Governed by The Constitution---Or by the Elite Group?" Most definitely the entire world is being governed by an "elite" group... I firmly believe this, and I don't believe that they have our best interests in mind; that is unless one really enjoys being a mindless slave. Bobbi, you obviously did a lot of research; you did your homework so to speak and this was one of the most enjoyable encounters I've had since discovering this website. This was awesome and thank you very much!

I heard many times about this story. I firmly believe that they are for the good of the people.

Because they might fall later if they themselves fight. If there are tough decisions they made, their council are always for the good.

I think there is no organization in the world that will last that long if they are up for no good.

Ruchira from United States on December 11, 2012:

Good questions put fwd. however with time n their values are changing as well. Government constitutes us thus changing fo the worse :(

Voted p as useful, interesting

Hi Paula,

We will not let our forefather, ancestors, and true Americans down because we will keeping telling it like it is, and prayers help too.

Have a great Christmas with all your babies---and from my house to yours---Merry Christmas.


Suzie from Carson City on December 11, 2012:

Bobbi.... I surely am an American with great concern for our Country.....You've presented the awful truth here. Unfortunately, the hard core reality of your Dad's comment (which I heard many times from my own Dad) is accurate.

Money does literally TALK. It drowns us (middle class & lower) out entirely. No one hears one cares, but us. We must struggles harder, speak louder and band together to have any amount of clout whatsoever.

Currently, the vast majority are simply holding on for dear life and trying desperately to keep the faith. It HAS to get better. PLEASE, let us make it better!.............UP+++

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on December 10, 2012:

Hi Sis,

You are so right and we can still speak out with our words on paper---bring it all to the attention of people who are walking around with their heads in a cloud. I know I had mine in the clouds when I was employed I did not even listen to the news---I was too busy. So I understand how people need to be educated about our country and the current events of today.

I hope all is well with you and yours.


Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on December 10, 2012:

Thanks Michael,

Yes--we all have to be aware of what is going on around us. And speak out about all the negative structure of our government--- because we are still a free nation. Thanks for your visit and comment. Have a great week.


Angela Blair from Central Texas on December 10, 2012:

Your fears are the same as many of us -- this country is indeed being led down the primrose path to socialism beginning with our president. As to secret societies -- yes, I believe a lot of them wield great power -- but they'll also have no power against this POTUS if he keeps personally making all the decisions for this country and totally ignoring our Constitution. He's gathering up power to control this whole nation by himself -- it's called a "dictator." Like you, I seriously fear for the future of our children -- however -- most young people old enough to vote are following this POTUS like he's their idol. Wish I was gonna be here to see how that works out for 'em! Great Hub -- Best/Sis

cleaner3 from Pueblo, Colorado on December 10, 2012:

Bobbi, great hub. i am a person who believes in conspiricies , secret societies and " the New World Order. Some cal me delusional but as a poet your imagination brings forth thought that when you you put them on paper they become true.

Look back at the events that have brought us to where we are? and look at the current events that are happening.? coincidence or reality.?

The media is controlled and they direct the conversations of our " instant gratification society for information" which all of our young peole gravitate to. They have taken over and changed our government by having been manipulated to vote for a candidate that has lied and now we are having to face the consequences.

We are doomed to repeat the past for sure .

Great hub, Bobbi.!

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on December 10, 2012:


Thanks for your visit and comment. Being a Mason to me is a great thing---what I am concerned about is who is running our country. Is it our elected people by "The Constitution or is it the Elite Group?" This is what we need to be concerned about.

You have a wonderful Christmas with your love ones,

Bobbi Purvis

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on December 10, 2012:

You make some good points in this hub. I also think the government is part of the problem. I think they should lower the corporate tax and close the loopholes, like companies buying yachts as a write off, etc. The corporate tax rate is one of the highest in the world but the loopholes mean companies still often pay low taxes. Also, why don't we tax things made in other countries and shipped here? That way it would be less attractive to companies to make their products in other countries. I try to make American made products, but that isn't always easy.

My grandfather was a Mason also but didn't own any big company. He had a good job and I thought they were more of a social group when I was a child. I remember going to picnics the Mason't did for the families. I think there are certainly secret groups and money exchanging hands that we don't know much about. Interesting hub.

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on December 09, 2012:


Thanks for your comment and visit. You really are a true mason and so was my grandfather. In my world men who are masons are highly revered.


Bobbi Purvis

Martin Kloess from San Francisco on December 09, 2012:

Thank you for this. First, I was successful at city hall because the opposition stayed home. Could I raise funds or get signatures? Elite can be "doers". Second, I am a mason. 33rd degree no less and I was a masonic educator. Go to one of our meetings and you will say. "these guys couldn't run a hole in the ground." If we are so powerful why do non-masons run our hospitals and retirement homes?

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on December 09, 2012:

Hi ImKarn23,

Happy to hear from you and I appreciate your comment and you are so right. It is good that some people are aware of what is happening in our country today. I hope every day that I am wrong---but all the signs are there for all to see.

You have a great Holiday.

Bobbi Purvis

Karen Silverman on December 09, 2012:

i love this..thank you for chewing the gristle - when most can't..or won't..

i believe you are correct, Bobbi - the government is being controlled by the money - and the money is only interested in MORE money...for some reason that is beyond my comprehension..

They are willing to ruin the country - while at the same time standing on the constitution and screaming how much they 'love' their country. it nauseates me and i wonder why more don't see thru it!

i thought maybe obama would ball-up in his second term - but - perhaps that's not 'allowed'...

this fiscal cliff crap is pure politics and bullshit - WHERE has the power gone?Who's pulling the strings, i wonder every day..the 'people' voted for the taxes on the rich to go UP - why is there ANY discussion after the fact?

soon there will be no middle class left - just the rich and the poor - just the way 'they' want it - and the next step is..well - take a look a the path of the arrogant roman empire...or..the greek empire...or the german empire..

we're on the same path..

I don't know if it's a secret society or the politicians or the banks. But something stinks to high hell.

Concerned? Darn right. We need to be.

Valuable brain food here. Thanks.

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on December 09, 2012:


Thanks for your answer Bill---it really concerns me about our country---and if we had not been hit with all the unemployment in the USA and the reasons for it---we might still have our heads in a cloud. But I am afraid it has started to rain doubts and questions for Americans.

Have a great Christmas with your family.

Your Friend,


Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on December 09, 2012:


Thanks I value your answers always. This is scary for Americans and our babies. You have a great Christmas and be good to yourself.

Your Friend,

Bobbi Purvis

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on December 09, 2012:

I don't think you are wrong to be concerned at all, Bobbi, and I don't think there is any doubt about your questions. As long as special interest groups are allowed to pour billions of dollars into the government, this kind of corruption will continue. Well done my friend!


Curiad on December 09, 2012:

You make good points here Bobbi. I fear the answers are all too obvious and that this country is deteriorating to the point of massive, random protests and civil disrupt. I would hope this is not the truth, but the things happening right in front of our eyes says different.
