It’s time people decide if they want their country back, or not. If they do, it’s time to stop headline reading and sound bite seeking, and it’s time to get INFORMED,and then teach others. Otherwise, this country is lost. James Madison said:

“Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.”

Most Americans don’t have a clue about the Constitution, the separation of powers, or why we are in such grave danger… 

 

THE FOLLOWING WORDS ARE FROM THE VIDEO BELOW:

Today I’m here to speak to you about the state of our great union, what the Founders intentions for the country were, and the lack of motivation I see my fellow countrymen to retain the freedoms fought for so hard by their forefathers…

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was, and what never will be.”

Patriots, at this crucial point in our nations history, information and knowledge are key, they mean the different between retaining or losing this republic.    

Our Founders believed in the potential of this country so greatly, that they gave their lives, and some of them even watched as their children were slaughtered on the battlefield, and others lost everything, and died penniless. They endured greater pains than you or I could ever even fathom, simply so their children and grandchildren could prosper without the wolf of tyranny knocking at their door.

MY COUNTRYMEN… MY BROTHERS… THAT WOLF IS NOW AT OUR DOOR…

That evil that they warned us of, has come upon us like a thief in the night. It has crept slowly into our lives, and is preparing for it’s final blow. We have not heeded the words of our Forefathers, and for that, we may have to pay dearly to regain our republic. I’m sorry, but there is a chance our republic can no longer be saved by political means… they have all but extinguished our hopes of a diplomatic resolve.

James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, said “The ultimate authority resides within the people, and if the federal government ever got too powerful and overstepped its authority, then the people were to develop plans of resistance and resort to arms.”

Madison 2

234 years they KNEW this could happen, and they spoke openly about it so it wouldn’t, but NOW the mainstream media portrays you as some crazy redneck racist if echo the thoughts of the great men who created this nation… Enjoy the video, and then make a decision: Are you going to 1) Continue to rip on people on social media while you sit back and do nothing; or 2) make an effort to educate yourself beyond mere headlines, and make allies, not enemies?

 “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”  Thomas Jefferson

 

What Would the Founders Thinks.com writes: 

The Constitution of United States of America was signed on September 17, 1787.  This year we will celebrate Constitution Day on Friday, September 16th.  We’ve submitted two blog posts in honor of Constitution Day.  Some of this has appeared in prior posts, but it seems fitting to repeat some points on a week that starts with memorials for 9/11 and ends with a celebration of our Constitution.

The design of the government under the Constitution was not haphazard.  Our Founding Fathers understood that governments can oppress people.  They knew it from their own experience—and they knew it from their extensive scrutiny of governmental forms throughout history.  Concentrated power was more than dangerous … it was life threatening.

That’s why:

They balanced power between the three branches.

They gave each branch robust checks on the other two.

They gave the national government only enumerated powers, and retained all other power in the hands of either the people or the states.

They used the states to check the national government.

The members of each branch were chosen by a different method.

The term of office varied by government position.

An impeachment process was defined for extreme cases.

Concentrated political power frightened the Founders.  They believed that only by limiting government could liberty survive the natural tendency of man to dictate the habits of other men.  The balanced separation of power with checks was designed to prevent tyranny.  Each branch was given delineated powers, and then each of these powers was limited and checked by another branch or entity.  The system was purposely designed to slow governmental actions enough to allow due deliberation.  This frustrates those who want the government to always “do something” about every problem, but it also hampers the government from doing something grievous that affects our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

Knowledge

The Constitutional Convention debated long and hard about whether to call out each power individually or, alternately, to list restrictions on general powers. Basically they had to decide whether to write down what the federal government could do or what the federal government could not do. Because they feared they might forget some crucial restrictions, the delegates decided it was safer to define the powers, instead of the limitations. Additionally, monarchies had general power, and since they had just escaped a monarchy, they would give their national government only clearly specified powers.  This was the safer route because if they made an error, it would leave the authority closer to the people.

The national government was not restricted for all time to the enumerated powers.  Non-enumerated powers were retained by the states or the people, but the Founders included an amendment process which the people could chose to use to delegate additional powers to the national government.  The 16th Amendment is an illustrative example.  Article I, Section 8 gave the national government the power to “lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises,” with the caveat that “all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States.” The 16th Amendment expands national authority to “lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived,” which authorized the infamous income tax.  It doesn’t matter if this was a good or ill-conceived expansion of national powers.  What matters is that it was done in the proscribed manner defined within the Constitution, and thus is a legitimate expansion of national power.  Unfortunately, this is a rare case of the national government receiving a legitimate expansion of power.  In almost all other instances, Americans have witnessed authority simply being usurped by the national government.

We often hear laments that our politicians no longer honor their pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.  This is backward.  The Constitution was never written for politicians.  Our political leaders have no motivation to abide by a two hundred year old restraining order.  Americans must enforce the supreme law of the land.  The first outsized words of the Constitution read We the People.  It’s our document. It was always meant to be ours, not the government’s.  It is each and every American’s obligation to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
