We to start calling our Congressmen and women ‘Representatives’ because they ‘only represent us,’ they are not our Lords and Masters, that the supreme Court IS a branch of government, subject to checks and balances, to the dismissal of judges, that ‘supreme’ at the front of their office is an adjective while Court is the noun, and they only issue rulings in the form of opinion and NOT law, that the Senate follows the House of Representatives in the formation of bills and budgets, and that the Executive Branch doesn’t have unlimited power, and that it is the people through the states that has delegated power to the three branches of federal government and that delegation can be withdrawn at anytime.
Further, a Progressive education system and the Progressive media have pushed the idea that the U.S. Constitution is an outdated document, which simply isn’t true. Here is an overly simplified breakdown of the first 10 amendments that give us liberties that no one can take away from us:
Free speech, freedom to worship (or not worship) in the religion of our choice, the right to gather and peacefully protest, the right to ask the government to make right an unconstitutional action; a free press; the right to protect yourself from anyone or thing that threatens you, your family or community (and that specifically means the government); not to be forced into having soldiers (or law enforcement) living in or using your home as a base of operation; the right not to be searched physically, electronically or by any other means unless a lawful warrant has been issued; not be held against your will unless you’re charged; your property cannot be taken from you without a trial or without fair compensation; you can’t be tried twice for the same crime; you get a quick trial and that trial cannot be held in secret; you can take anyone to court — including the federal government — if the offense is for more than $20, and that ruling once entered, cannot be overturned; you can’t be given a bail that is so high that you can’t pay it; you can’t be whipped, tortured, chained up or anything else as punishment for a crime; no one can be denied a liberty that is in the Constitution; and if the Constitution doesn’t say the federal government has authority over it, then it belongs to the state and this include marriage, transportation, roads, healthcare, schools, drug enforcement, etc.
Sadly, many of these liberties have been quietly stripped from away through acts of unlawfulness which include ‘interpretation,’ opinion’ and willful ‘bureaucracy.’
