Thanks to decades of progressive education, media propaganda, and politicians from both parties that have ignored their oaths to uphold our US Constitution, we may now say we are nearly de-constituted as a country that once was based on individual freedom and our property rights, in a society which both revered and observed the rule of law.
Preamble of the De-constituted
We the Central Authority of the Subservient States, in Order to form Enduring Powers, establish arbitrary Justice, insure domestic Obedience, provide for the Social Compact, promote the Standardized Consensus Agenda, and to secure and redistribute the Property of the Demos, do command, and so order, this Manifesto as Supreme authority over the subjects of the Socialist States of America from this time forward.
Far fetched? Which part is not already true?
Our federal government, populated and dominated by socialist ideologies, is dictating what the states may or may not do, as well as us citizens, as if we were subjects commanded to obey, instead of the source of our elected representatives authority. This dictating attitude of office holders is heard in their words, and seen through their actions.
The Rule of Law, along with the elements that are required for true justice, have been usurped by the rule of men. The laws have grown so numerous, and so complex as to not be known even generally, much less in any specifics by most of the people. Increasingly we see these laws are applied unequally, to politically favored groups for either exemption or benefit, and to dis-favored groups as punishments and inhibitors of freedom. Not only is the individual left largely unprotected now in favor of the arbitrary “greater good” of society, new laws are damning to the individual… and his rights. Success of the productive is often met by confiscation, overbearing regulation, and even more laws of men which are meant mainly to siphon off a maximum value for the longest time possible, and redistribute those proceeds to ensure political power for themselves. Judicial review is no longer conducted by impartial or independent judges.
Irresponsible social promises have been made now for generations, by those willing to promise anything, without being held responsible for their false advertising, which in turn has made the notion of a ‘social compact’ between the government and the people seem almost natural for people to expect, and many feel this promised arrangement is somehow superior to the idea of true self sufficiency and the liberty to pursue ones own happiness. Evidently these people have never thought it through far enough to realize that one cannot both retain responsibility for determining one’s own path, and simultaneously enjoy no responsibilities for their own welfare.
If we are to retain our ability to demand our consent for a system of self-government, as a representative Republic, we must elect those that understand the elements of good law to be our lawmakers. Otherwise we end up with the rule of men, uncertainty, decline, and worst of all, the end of our liberty.
Our Founders understood what the Rule of Law consists of. Our elected officials need to remember these elements too. The rule of law must be known (knowable) in general to all, have a certainty (a law we count on to last without changing, and have a sound legal framework. It must be applied with equality, with an absence of any government discretionary power which always threatens the Rule of Law. It must have impartial independent judicial review. It must acknowledge its authority is only derived by protecting our individual rights.
The recent Obamacare law is a prime example of what happens when the Rule of Law has been eviscerated and usurped by the arbitrary rule of men. It is an unprecedented massive, unknowable law that was both rushed and rammed through Congress by a majority against the will of the people, which tramples on individual rights, is already undergoing numerous changes, will generate volumes of new rules, is creating uncertainty, is full of both discretionary powers by government and exemptions for government and others of favored status, and much of it is not subjected to any independent judicial review or even congressional review. Life itself will be put at risk by its provisions, which do include a “death panel” based on costs of services.
So we can see that the fictitious Preamble of the De-constituted above is not far fetched at all. This is however how those in power now exercise their duties. This is the power and purpose they are actively seeking by any means possible, and they likely hope to pronounce a similar manifesto of control when they know that they have crushed any resistance to them. They have massively abused their power to the point of controlling us, by ignoring good law, constitutional constraints to limit power, the sovereignty of the individual, and substituting arbitrary rules of their own making. All the positive good born of freedom which our fellow citizens, current and past, have built upon to grow this society into the greatest country, is now in jeopardy of being lost forever unless we end this rogue regime of post constitutionalists and any like it.
It is not too late though, unless of course, We the People ignore what Edmond Burke stated;
“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men (and women) do nothing”
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
