Constitutional Enforcement

The question facing us today is whether or not we consider ourselves free individuals.

Our ancestors, a ragtag population of farmers, merchants, laborers, and slaves fought the greatest nation or earth to throw off the shackles of tyranny and establish a government “of the people” whose sole purpose was to secure our God-ordained Liberties.

The principles of Liberty are declared within our the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

Our Constitution was written with a firm reliance on “Our Creator” — God. It truly encapsulates Liberty by creating a severely limited central government charged only with the power to establish and maintain a sovereign Union within the world community. It repeatedly prohibits this government from addressing any routine function within the States or any function pertaining to the daily lives of the people. These responsibilities are unambiguously reserved for the States themselves or the people — the essence of Liberty.

The the “Bill of Rights” theoretically was not needed due to the severe restrictions imposed within the Constitution, but to “prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers,” many States insisted upon their addition as a condition of ratification. Every one of these rights reinforces the restrictions against Congress…

  • Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
  • …the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
  • No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner
  • The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,
  • No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime… without due process of law;
  • To ensure there would be no misunderstanding whatsoever, our ancestors insisted upon the 9th Amendment which reinforced that our rights are ordained by God, and so being are virtually unlimited, and in no way limited to the few specifically referenced within the Bill of Rights. Conversely the 10th Amendment reinforced the exact opposite for the newly created central government — that its powers were limited to those specifically enumerated, and that every governmental need of society were the undisputed responsibility of the States themselves, and the day-to-day needs of the people were to be addressed by the people themselves.

    This Constitutional division of power worked unimaginably well propelling the United States from a third world nation, immediately after the Revolution, to a world class superpower in every regard – economically, morally, charitably, and defensibly — by the start of the 20th century.

    For the last century, our republic has been under a coordinated attack by self serving politicians driven by special interests seeking advantage through federal power.

    It’s working.

    The federal government ignores every restriction of its power and now controls virtually every aspect of society — education, energy, food production, healthcare, retirement, housing, transportation, welfare, communication, and the environment to name just a few.

    To fund this monstrosity it extracts as much capital as possible from the private sector resulting in the virtual destruction of our economy. Yet, due to its inefficiency, incompetency, greed, and corruption, Washington seeks even more money and acquires it through the accumulation of crushing debt or simply printing it out of thin air.

    Unless we can restrain Washington back within its constitutional confines we cannot exist. The policies of Washington will destroy us.

    The founders anticipated this scenario and provided us the answer — if we have leaders at the state level with enough courage.

    The only solution is to enforce the provisions of the Constitution at the State level, making unconstitutional activity by Washington irrelevant.
