America! Are You Not Tired Of Politics As Usual?
For the Framers and Founders politics was never meant to be a job. The most successful and brightest in 1776 and 1787sacrificed to inaugurate a new era of liberty and justice for all in history. This untried experiment in government was intended “to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domesticTranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity. [W]ith a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence”, they “pledge[d] to each other [their] Lives, [their] Fortunes and [their] sacred Honor”.
“The preamble never can be resorted to, to enlarge the powersconfided to the general government, or any of its departments. It cannot confer any power per se; it can never amount, by implication, to an enlargement of any power expressly given. It can never be the legitimate source of any implied power, when otherwise withdrawn from the constitution. Its true office is to expound the nature, and extent, and application of the powers actually conferred by the constitution, and not substantively to create them. For example, the preamble declares one object to be, ” to provide for the common defence.” No one can doubt, that this does not enlarge the powers of congress to pass any measures, which they may deem useful for the common defence.1 But suppose the terms of a given power admit of two constructions, the one more restrictive, the other more liberal, and each of them is consistent with the words, but is, and ought to be, governed by the intent of the power; if one would promote, and the other defeat the common defence, ought not the former, upon the soundest principles of interpretation to be adopted? Are we at liberty, upon any principles of reason, or common sense, to adopt a restrictive meaning, which will defeat an avowed object of the constitution, when another equally natural and more appropriate to the object is before us? Would not this be to destroy an instrument by a measure of its words, which that instrument itself repudiates?” – Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, 1833, Ch. VI. The Preamble
Clearly Justice Story of the United States Supreme Court, being of a generation directly familiar with those in Independence Hall in 1787 and those in the First Congress giving us our Bill of Rights, was very aware of the Framers’ and Founders’ intentions for this “one Nation under God”. Reading the above and applying it to the Constitution as a whole, and particularly to Article I, Section 8, and Amendment X, it is readily apparent that the politicians, bureaucrats, and judges that we have erroneously trusted to be bound by the intentions of the makers of “the supreme law of the land” have willfully violated that trust.
From the dismissal of states’ rights, to taxation without representation, to complete fiscal irresponsibility, to the failure to protect us from enemies “foreign and domestic”, to saddling our children with incomprehensible debt, to name but a few of the more pressing usurpations and failures to obey the very basic principles demanded in the Preamble, America is under attack.
The first step in reclaiming our heritage and restoring freedom and justice is for every citizen to individually recall all the behaviors that allowed us to enjoy the opportunities and blessings that were “endowed by our Creator“. Recognized by Gov. Bradford in his Of Plymouth Plantation, work and sacrifice have given all so willing that opportunity. In the words of the father of our country, “religion and morality are indispensible supports”. The fight and the responsibility rest on each patriot. From Plymouth colony on, repeatedly confirmed by history, socialist welfare governments — any utopian order not fully established on the unchanging realities of human behavior — fail.
With each loyal American doing their individual part, we must then cleanse our Nation of those contaminating and destroying all that enabled and sustained us. The lies and deceptions of political propaganda must join those infecting us as we hold all those that we place in positions of public service accountable. A first step is to bind all elected officials by contract to their oath of office.
