There are continuous attacks on our Constitution by Mr. Obama and many of our politicians through the Enviromental Protection Agency, Health & Human Services, the Education department, and the Transportation Security Agency. There are so many of these agencies that I don’t think the politicians themselves know them all. Also there is unconstitutional legislation like the healthcare law. Don’t take my word for it. Look at the enumerated powers listed in our Constitution and then compare that to what each of these agencies are currently doing to withhold our natural resources, force us to compromise our religious belief’s and our right to privacy, indoctrinate our students into socialist and marxists ideology through radical teaching, and take away our right to due process at all airports where we are treated as criminals until we prove our innocence.
But these attacks are most onerous within the healthcare law. This one law all by itself could totally change life in our country from freedom to slavery. You think that can never happen in America. I thought so too until the healthcare bill was passed into law through bribery and coercion and against the consent of the people.
All of this may appear very complicated but if we look at it through the lens of our Constitution it sorts itself out pretty quickly. Look at our Constitution and you will find that none of these agencies mentioned above and the actions they take appear in the enumerated powers of the executive branch as listed under Article II. There are many more such violations of the enumerated powers our Constitution grants each branch of government. Too many to go into here.
This war on our Constitution has been ramped up tremendously in the last several years but it’s been going on since before the great depression. Whenever legislation has passed that gives any branch of government a power that is not an enumerated power granted by our Constitution a battle has been lost along with a little of our individual rights. A presidential veto would be the right thing to do for any such legislation along with the page showing this is not an enumerated power. Alas, very few of our leaders have had the courage nor the fortitude to do this. An example of this is social security. There is no enumerated power for this in Article I, section 8 of our Constitution.
Each piece of legislation that is not held up to our Constitution to see if it is within the boundaries of the government’s enumerated powers actually changes the relationship between the government and the individual and this change is never good for the individual. Is it ever good to let someone else decide for you? Of course not. That would be like saying being robbed is good for a person. In actual fact when we are robbed of some of our liberty we also lose some of ourselves as well.
There is only one correct way to change our Constitution and it is not through legislation or executive order. It is through Article 5 of our Constitution. Read through it and you will find that this procedure if followed will give, ”We the People”, the most say in the proposed change. A change like that put forth by the healthcare bill would have never seen the light of day if our politicians upheld their oath of office and followed our Constitution.
So, what can we do about this seemingly disastorous predicament we find ourselves in? We can study our founding documents with friends and family. There are resources and suggested sites on this blog to help you. Start or join groups who want to put our Constitution back in use. Contact your representatives, senators and the president insisting on the same. Last but not least keep dreaming of the day when the Declaration of Independence, the Constituion, and the Bill of Rights are known so well by all of us that no politician or bureaucrat will dare violate them!
Victory is right around the corner!
