(The Constitution was read by our New Congress Today… and They Edited the Reading Because Obviously the Readers… Members or Our Congress Did Not (DO NOT) Understand It… Think About It)
They left out the 3/5’s clause out of consideration for Political Correctness. For those who understand history and the 3/5’s clause, they understand that it was a measure by which the Founding Father’s ensured that slavery would eventually be defeated; it made it an anti-slavery document, as Frederick Douglass learned when he set out to prove the opposite. If you are not familiar with the 3/5’s clause please read: Giants and Original Intent… and then explain it to your Congressman and Senator. The Congress also did not read the 18th Amendment about prohibition, but read the 21st Amendment reinstating drinking… why? The two need to be read together as well as the 3/5’s Clause to understand the process, the thought process as well as see the scars of our nation’s journey. The same sanitation is going on with our classics. Books like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer teach lessons that our children now cannot read. (Read it with your children and make sure you read an original version or at least an annotated version: The Annotated Huckleberry Finn which leaves room for discussions).
The U.S. Constitution
As the 112th Congress of the United States House of Representatives takes it’s Oath to God to uphold and defend the Constitution from ALL enemies foreign and domestic the first on a long list of orders to be fulfilled is the actual reading of the Document that they swear the Oath to.
This is probably the most honorable symbol from those the American People entrust so much too, with vested power, in enacting laws and keeping us safe. Simply put the Constitution is the relevant document that bestows our Legislative, Executive and Judicial leaders in the Federal Government with the needed authority on what they can and cannot do for or most importantly against the American people.
Today more and more Americans are talking about this document because they are reading it and understanding the true nature of its power when enforced by the American people. As the word spread about this reading on the House floor led by new House Speaker John Boehner some in the media questioned this with obvious confusion and anger.
On Joy Behar’s HLN program Tuesday night she questioned a Progressive radio host Bill Press, “Do you think this Constitution-loving is getting out of hand? I mean, is it a nod to the Tea Party?” Behar asked Press, before unwittingly, perhaps, answering her own question: “Is it the first time a lot of congressmen will have heard about it, er, read it?”
The mood amongst most Americans and specifically the TEA Party is that which Behar described in her ending remarks. Most of the Congressmen in Washington have never read it, much less understand it because if the Politicians do they are willingly lying about the Constitutions intent for Government and breaking an Oath to God.
What’s worse is the thought Ezra Klein of the Washington Post most absurdly articulated here in this statement on MSNBC, a news channel.“You can say two things about it, One; it has no binding power on ANYTHING. The issue of the Constitution is that the text is confusing because it was written more than a hundred years ago, and what people believe it says differs from person to person and differs depending on what they want to get done.”
The idea that the text is confusing is extremely disturbing given that if the Constitution and all 27 Amendments are added to a Word document with Calibri and 11 size fonts you have 17 pages of 7,500 words. Just one of the most recent laws signed by President Obama, one of positive rights, ObamaCare, was 2,500 pages and more than 500,000 words and in the last two years Congress has passed and President Obama has signed at least 5 laws just like ObamaCare. How will we ever interpret them? (And everyday we learn something new about this bill that isn’t good for “We the People”!
These remarks come from a much discussed and debated idea most of you reading this will already know and that is that the Constitution is a “Living, Breathing Document.” This means that we, namely Politicians and those wanting to get stuff done, have to translate and manipulate the language of the Constitution to fit their purpose and our rapidly changing environment, socially and politically, based on verbiage.
For those that proclaim the living, breathing lie also believe the Constitutions language must be altered arbitrarily, or interpreted, to match the agenda for those seeking to pass unconstitutional legislation.Over generations meanings of words do change but for this case the Founding Fathers wrote and published thousands of hand written explanations for the words, terms and meanings of which they used.
The most important aspect of all this aside from reading and understanding our founding documents is how the concept of the “living,breathing document” theory was passed down as more than a theory.
To some, the answer and conclusion you will read may seem controversial or conspiratorial but the annals of history and time prove this true. I implore you to not take my word for it but conduct your own research and you will find the same answers.
As Karl Marx, German Philosopher, and Friedrich Engels’, German Social Scientist, Communist Manifesto took off amongst the elite in the world and the framework for their plans began to take shape. For the many pages of horrid rhetoric describing the knowledge on how to dismantle the American system in particular the Authors tell of the plans to remove the American people from history and eternal truths.
“Undoubtedly,religious, moral, philosophical, and juridical ideas have been modified in the course of historical development. But religion, morality, philosophy, political science and law, constantly survived this change.”
“There are, besides, eternal truths, such as Freedom, Justice, etc., that are common to all states of society. But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience.”
It is true that President Reagan defeated the Communist Soviet Russians and the Communist International but ideas are more complicated to defeat than a human cabal.
Those Americans who joined hands with the Communist around the turn of the 20th century knew that once the ills of the Communist International were made public the ideas espoused by them would never see the light of day. So, the only logical thing to do would be to call your ideas by another name. For this we have a generation of history in America that is called the Progressive Era.
This was the beginning of the end of generations of American children learning the meaning and history of our founding leaders and documents. Those children obviously grew up and did not understand the concept of limited-Government and what the tool that kept it that way was. For this, we have a completely out of control Federal Government that is constantly stepping over its boundaries and usurping from the American people the ability to self-govern.
Understand Liberal/Progressives will use the Constitution, explicitly to progress their agenda, but when it comes to the ideas of it limiting government per its enumerated powers the document becomes out dated and hard to interpret. So, in hindsight, to Progressives the Constitution is a dead, living breathing document.
The importance of the Constitution cannot be overstated for a free people to remain as such. In fact Thomas Jefferson, Author of the Declaration of Independence said, “If a Nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”
The Constitution is a timeless document that transcends generations primarily due to the overarching wisdom and intellect of history and Faith in God by the Founding Fathers. The men, who debated, wrote and studied which form of government to be best where literal students of history and took from the best of former societies and established unto God what was intended for human kind, Individual Liberty and self-government.
Because of this, it is of the utmost importance that each and every American be more than familiar with the documents history, text and original intent. The intent of which I speak is a parameter setting, NOT for the general public as are laws, but for the Government. It lists basic governing principles and enumerated powers that are to be bound like shackles to the ankles of our Representing body of government.
Like most humans do when presented with an obstacle in its way is for that human to get around said obstacle, like former Speaker of the House Progressive Democrat Nancy Pelosi stated during the healthcare debate, “We will go through the gate. If the gate is closed, we will go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we will pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we will parachute in. But we are going to get health care reform passed.” The Constitution was the obstacle and the American people were the closed gate.
But if removed, the Constitution or the people, singularly or both together you have a government in full fledge tyranny.
The idea at the time of ratification was simply to give the majority unblemished Freedom and allow for God’s hand to work its spirit and soon thereafter would secure to all unequivocal Freedom that no human civilization has ever been witnessed to.
Above all, what makes the U.S. Constitution so special aside from securing self governance and individual liberty is that it is the oldest governing document in human history. Most societies revolutionize themselves every fifty to one hundred years. We, Americans, have lived under the inalienable core principles abound in the Constitution for more than 234 years.
This gives even more reason for taking an Oath to God to uphold and defend with my life and liberty in order to secure it for future generations because if there is no more important thing to understand then self governance it is that the Constitution and Freedom do NOT belong to us, this generation, it belongs to future generations of God’s children to also uphold and defend. We are not the sole proprietors of Liberty but it must be passed on and the only way to accomplish this is by teaching, reading and living by the Constitution.
“Whether peace is best preserved by giving energy to the government, or information to the people. This last is the most certain and the most legitimate engine of government. Educate and inform the whole mass of the people. Enable them to see that it is their interest to preserve peace and order, and they will preserve them. And it requires no very high degree of education to convince them of this. They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”
Thomas Jefferson letter to James Madison
Wilder Pub. put WARNING LABELS on the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the Federalist Papers.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME????
They feed us genetically modified food that our bodies may not even recognize as food, our school kids are #19 in the world… 100’s of cities don’t have safe water in their pipes, and now…
THE CONSTITUTION NEEDS A WARNING LABEL!??
I gotta say….I am actually laughing at this one…
Want to fight back? Write Wilder a nice little note and then go buy one of those things they “warned” us of, from ANOTHER publisher. And then do something REALLY mean and spiteful… Actually READ THE THING!
Read Full Story Here and then Please Share:
The Congress was starting their session today with the reading of the Constitution… sadly necessary!!
And if you haven’t read the Constitution (and related documents) or have children in school now, please sit down and read it and discuss it… Here are some suggestions:
- The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America
- The Constitution of the United States of America, with the Bill of Rights and all of the Amendments; The Declaration of Independence; and the Articles of Confederation
- The Federalist Papers
- The 5000 Year Leap
- Glenn Beck’s Common Sense
This photo is an example of what makes America great… the most civil transfer of power in world… even sealed with a kiss by this two arch rivals. It demonstrates the amazing tools that our Founding Fathers have given us… a republic and a divinely inspired Constitution that the Progressives have worked to destroy for over 100-years, and are closer in doing so than they ever have been before! If there was ever a time for each of us to get involved in saving our country and all that is good about it, it is now!
Keep them honest… Keep up the pressure by calling, faxing, emailing and writing your Senators and Congress-people as well as visiting their offices both at home and Washington D.C. and keep the tea party candidates and Republicans focused on their election promises!!
