CBS: US Constitution is Overrated

This is the kind if bilge being offered by the asses in the “mainstream” media as meaningful, worthwhile, beneficial “information” to the American people. These elitist morons are, in their own minds, infinitely smarter and more enlightened than the primitive rubes who lived 200 years ago.

THE REPUBLIC IS DEAD…Long Live the King

THE REPUBLIC IS DEAD…Long Live the King

History is replete with examples of groups giving their own champions unbridled powers and control, only to have that power turned against them later, to their destruction. Nobody – not Obama or Bush, Republicans or Democrats – nobody should be allowed to flaunt their disdain for our foundational liberties. The Bill of Rights was created to restrict Congress, not the American people; it was designed to keep their power in check, for our Founders knew what power does to people’s good sense. For a president and Congress to trample on that Bill of Rights is a dire omen of what is to come if their action is allowed to stand.

Time for a Declaration of Non-Compliance

Time for a Declaration of Non-Compliance

With the federal government radically exceeding its legal Constitutional authority and running roughshod over the rights of the states and the people, it is clear to all (except liberals who agree with this usurpation, and the naive who still have their heads stuck in the sand of negotiation with evil) that radical steps are going to need to be taken by the states and the people if the American republic is to survive much longer.

Gun Control, the Dick Act of 1902, Bills of Attainder & Ex Post Facto Laws

The latest round of rubbish flooding our in boxes is an ignorant rant claiming that the Dick Act of 1902 (which respects our Right to be armed) can’t be repealed because to do so would “violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws”. Who dreams up this stuff? Does anyone check it out before they spread it around? Of course we have the God-given right to keep and bear arms, to self-defense, etc., etc.

When Government Abandons ‘We the People’

When Government Abandons ‘We the People’

In recent years this wholesale abandonment of our founding principles has rapidly gained momentum — accompanied by a skyrocketing government debt that now eclipses our nation’s annual gross domestic product. “There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics,” former U.S. President Ronald Reagan said in his farewell address to the nation in 1989. “As government expands, liberty contracts.”

Constitution Restrains Obama Spending Authority

Constitution Restrains Obama Spending Authority

Soon, the Obama Administration will be able to borrow money to refinance and expand the $16.4 trillion national debt without any permission from Congress. That is, if House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi gets her way. There’s just one little problem: the United States Constitution.

The Death Of Original Intent

Many Americans are oblivious to the meaning of original intent. A century ago, it was the established and respected legal approach to determining constitutionality and applying law. The question was, “How did the framers of the constitution intend this passage to be applied to our case?” But in the twentieth century, the original intent of the framers was seen as irrelevant by some.

The Ninth Amendment: The Value of Our Unenumerated Rights

We recently observed the 221th anniversary of the Bill of Rights, taught in every school in America. Interestingly, certain rights are not enumerated, and yet people still benefit from them. The Ninth Amendment is my favorite: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Few of us ever think about how the Ninth Amendment preserves all of our rights not cited in the Constitution.

Bill of Rights

A Creature Determined to Destroy Its Creators

Newly independent, the thirteen States were concerned that their new Government may become too powerful, as King George’s was. They insisted handcuffs be place on the power of the Federal Government. We call these the First Ten Amendments or Bill of Rights, ratified DECEMBER 15, 1791. These Amendments did not limit States or citizens, just the Federal Congress.

Does the Constitution Allow ‘Mandatory Spending’?

Does the Constitution Allow ‘Mandatory Spending’?

In 2013, $2.2 trillion of the $3.65 trillion budget will be on so-called “mandatory” spending — a Washingtonian euphemism for automatic spending. It just operates on autopilot, and even increases of its own accord as a function of the rising population that qualifies for benefits and built-in cost-of-living adjustments. But is such a design constitutional?
