I've been writing about the corruption, incompetence, and hopelessly anti-American, un-Constitutional, and anti-family culture of so-called "Child Protective' "Services" (CPS) in the United States for six months now, and I've been arriving at the same conclusion for some time. I wondered when someone else would reach the same conclusion, and thankfully, others are as well. The current Texas Republican Party now officially calls for abolishing CPS altogether, and I am beginning to think they are right.

We've written about all the various reform ideas, and have been generally supportive of many of them, but there is not (to my knowledge) a single major national parental rights organization that is yet had the temerity to openly call for abolishing CPS. So, once again...GOD BLESS TEXAS. They may just be the State that leads us back to sanity, God and the Constitution...if it can be done.
Here is a key excerpt:
"At the statewide convention of the ruling party of Texas earlier this month in San Antonio, delegates agreed on a new position on Child Protective Services (CPS)...The call for “the eventual abolishment of CPS” was enshrined in the official party platform after passing through a subcommittee on civil and criminal justice, a larger committee handling the platform as a whole, and the general convention...
In itself, the platform does nothing to change how the government is currently run, but it represents official party doctrine and points to a rift between incumbent Republican politicians who in recent years have moved to expand CPS and grassroots delegates who took part in drafting the platform. “If it’s in the platform, we will fight for it,” said GOP Chairman James Dickey in remarks to the drafting committee."

Now let me just warn those patriotic and sensible Texas delegates who moved and passed this amazing resolution. I have been a State Committeeman of the GOP in Maine, and have actually drafted resolutions before that were presented and passed at the State Convention, (or the monthly meeting of the State Committee) only to see the "Republicans in Name Only" (RINOs) who seem to really run every state GOP organization--sometimes pretty openly, sometimes from the shadows--render them useless and ineffective. They will NEVER, as James Dickey claims above, "fight for it," if the resolution is opposed to their agendas and their paymasters wishes.
While abolishing CPS is a great idea, it will take constant grassroots agitation to overcome, first RINO resistance at the party level, then all the liberals, most Democrats, and the RINOs in the State Legislature, and finally a corrupted court system that will pull every trick in the book to maintain the rotted apparatus, no matter how fervently the people may want it. It's just the situation we are in. EVERYTHING conservative and Constitutional is (or will shortly be upon origination) infiltrated by enemies of The Republic.

The billionaire pedophile club does not want to lose their pipeline, and will pull out all their enormous resources in terms of wealth, mainstream media propaganda, bought & paid for politicians (including the POTUS) in order to invalidate or ignore any such effort at the federal level. Trust me. I'm old enough and experienced enough in politics to know exactly how they operate.
But that doesn't mean it still isn't the right thing to do, or the right thing to at least elevate to the level of a national discussion. If most people knew, as those who read this blog now do, how irreparably damaged the entire CPS milieu is from top to bottom, and from beginning to end, as it is now, they would certainly support abolishing CPS at the federal level. If the Texas GOP sends this resolution out as a remonstrance and open letter to all other State GOP organizations, there is a solid chance that many other states will pass similar resolutions at their state conventions. That could be the way to get the snowball rolling down hill.
In the mean time, I can support all honest reform efforts that at least head in the right directions--like those typically put forward by the good folks at ParentalRights.org, and others--but I agree with Texas. Abolishing this monstrosity is the only answer to restoring sanity to the way American handle their few real child endangerment situations. It can no longer be done granting an insanely repressive and over-reaching federal and state CPS milieu superior rights to parents in familial relations.
There simply is no conservative, Constitutional or correct involvement by government in the family. The entire system is rooted in a flawed and evil view of human relations and the role of government.

Here is how the supporters of the Texas GOP resolution out it (excerpted from the above link:)
“'Before the government can take even minor liberties or private property, the Texas Constitution requires that individuals have their day in court, with all the procedural protections that entails,' said Chance Weldon, an attorney for the group. 'Here the law at issue gives the Department of Family Services the authority to interfere with one of the most intimate rights protected under the Constitution — the parent-child relationship — with almost no procedural protections at all. That’s not just unfair, it’s unconstitutional,' Weldon said."
Due process is something that is at the very wellspring of what it means to be an American citizen. Without due process government becomes judge, jury and executioner and there is NO FREEDOM. CPS is INHERENTLY set up to violate due process and to create and advance a new and un-American process. To the degree (which is now enormous) that the judicial system in the United States now puts "legal precedence" ahead of Constitutional rights, this direction becomes absolutely treasonous and deadly.
In the final analysis the Texas GOP is right. Only abolishment can kill the CPS monster. Styling its hair, and polishing its nails can only make people less fearful of something they ABSOLUTELY NEED TO FEAR.
