Returning to The US Constitution and other principles from the Founding Fathers is the solution to our problems. The proliferation of socialism, humanism, and monetary corruption are the cause of moral decline, and loss of individual freedom in the USA.
A Constitutional Republic requires the three branches of government to support the Constitution. These branches of our government only follow the parts that insure that they can stay in power. Whole departments (i.e. Department of Education) are created in defiance of the Constitution. Hundreds of Billions of dollars of public money are given away for foreign aid, farm subsidies, big business, and to individuals. This is to buy votes for incumbents to stay in office. Both Republicans and Democrats promise to spend money on unconstitutional projects to curry favor with the voters.
They can do this because 30% of our population cannot read and more than 90% of the population has never read or have no understanding of the Constitution. Example: some groups suggest that the Constitution is old. Was made before electricity, autos, airplanes, etc. Therefore it should be changed. The only thing the Constitution does is protect our rightsso which rights in these modern times do they feel we no longer need protected?
The majority of our population is unaware that the Constitution gives us no rights. The first ten Amendments (Bill of Rights) do not "give" any rights, they prohibit the government from messing with the rights we already have!
Of equal importance is the fact that the government is prohibited from doing anything not specifically spelled out in the Conxtitution. However, currently, the majority of federal government actions and expenditures are for things that are not Constitutional. The Department of Education, and Department of Energy are just two examples of unconstitutional agencies. It costs a lot of money, no one benefits from them except the thousands of bureaucrats they employ, and most important, the several states can do the job better.
Another example is what they call "pork." A cute name makes it appear less sinister. It is in fact misappropriating federal monies (stealing). It takes a majority of both houses of congress to pass "pork."
So if the Constitution is ignored by the three branches of government, we do not have a Constitutional Republic, instead we have a Democracy. A Democracy with a dishonest government.
Please note: Every vote by every Representative and every Senator for these unconstitutional laws is violating their oath to support the United States Constitution.
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years."
