|Our Legislators Think We Are a Democracy!!!|
|Most of the problems facing this country today can be traced back to the point at which our lawmakers starting abandoning the Constitution and other principles which guided our Founding Fathers. The proliferation of socialism, humanism, and monetary corruption are the cause of moral decline, and loss of individual freedom in the USA|
|Since 1913, the Constitutional Republic our Founders blessed us with, has gradually been transformed into a democratic socialist society incapable of securing for us the "Blessings of Liberty" for which so many fought and died. It all started with the popular election of our Senators, the establishment of the Federal Reserve System, and the XVI Amendment supposedly legalizing income taxit didn't.|
|Our Senators were required to be selected by each State as one of the "checks and balances" in our federal government. That is why there is no longer any State's rightswhy Mr. Gore is bragging about what he is going to "require" the States to do regarding education after he is elected President.|
|The Federal Reserve System is not federally owned, and nothing is in reserve. It is a private corporation with the power to increase or decrease the money supply by changing the interest rates and the reserve requirements of its member banks. It can create money out of thin air, lend it to the government and then collect the principal and interest from the taxpayers.|
"Permit me to control the currency of a nation and I care not who makes its laws."
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
|The XVI Amendment allows collection of taxes on income, but the only definition of "income" is corporate profit. Not wages, interest, capital gains, or tips, or anything else if you are not a corporation! Do not fear, that does not stop our federal government from collecting it voluntarily. It also does not stop it from criminally punishing those who chose not to volunteer.|
|Today the majority of our lawmakers in Congress do not understand the vast differences between a Republic and a Democracy, the free enterprise system and socialism, or the difference between religious principles and secular humanism. They also, don't understand the proper function of government or why our government came into existence in the first place. Or worse yet, they have a Socialist agenda which they are trying to slip past the low-information voters.|
|And yet, we continue sending these ignorant, arrogant people to Congress to uphold a Constitution that they don't understand or respect. In 1803, George Tucker made the same complaint with these words:|
"If an acquaintance with the Constitution and laws of our country be requisite to preserve the blessing of freedom to the people, it necessarily follows that those who are to frame laws or administer the government should possess a thorough knowledge of these subjects. For what can be more absurd than that person wholly ignorant of the Constitution should presume to make laws pursuant thereto? Or that one who neither understands the Constitution nor the law, should boldly adventure to administer the government!" George Tucker, 1803.
|The Founders understood that God created man with inalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and Property. So, they created our government with a Constitution designed to protect those God-given rights. Today however, we find that our government refuses to protect the Life of the unborn, denies our right to protect our own life with its gun laws, devises socialist schemes to take property from one and give it to another, while forcing us to give up almost half of our Liberty working to pay for these unconstitutional programs.|
|These things have occurred because those in government do not understand that all of its power comes from that delegated to it by We The People. The government therefore, cannot rise above its creator (the people), to do anything that the people themselves cannot do. Since the people have the right to protect their own Life, Liberty, and Property, they can create government to provide assistance in areas of protection such as the military, law enforcement, fire protection, etc.. The people however, cannot hire a government to take from one and give to another regardless of the intended purpose. Every redistribution of the wealth scheme foreign or domestic is unconstitutional, unlawful, and immoral.|
|Socialism is unconstitutional because Article 1, Section 8 only authorizes Congress to borrow, tax, and spend for less than 20 different purposes, which are clearly defined and restricted primarily to external matters such as war and international concerns. The few remaining powers are related to only those things that state governments cannot feasibly do, like coining money, establishing federal courts, etc. As James Madison explained, it is the States that were to be responsible for "all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people". To remove all doubt as to their intentions, the Founders added the 10th Amendment to the Constitution which states, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,...are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people". Since there is no authorization in the Constitution for any socialist program, all of them are in fact unconstitutional.|
|Socialism is unlawful for government because it is unlawful for the people who created government to take from one and give to another. If the people themselves practiced socialism, they would be put in jail for stealing.|
|Socialism is immoral because it requires the violation of God-given property rights (Thou shalt not steal) and the promotion of class warfare (Thou shalt not covet).|
|A little bit of socialism is as possible as a little bit of pregnancy.|
|If "We The People" continue to elect those unwilling or unable to understand and follow the Constitution, we will surely deserve the resulting enslavement.|
