The Constitution

19 October 2012, 11:02

Declaration of Independence and Affirmation of the Constitution of the USA still the world very best.  Clear concise and cannot be misinterpreted yet it is.


What does affirmation mean?


Does anyone understand these words today written specifically so no fool could misunderstand the US constitution or principles of any countries constitution.


Yet today “the people” believe the constitution is subservient to laws or government and can be changed, altered and infringed with impunity by government or some law.


That is not the case any constitution is our law, our instructions to government and we the people, the citizens police and enforce it. These rights a constitution seeks to put in written instructions to government are protecting the rights which protect all. The weak, the strong, women, children, the insane or anyone. Once we the people allow anyone to be excluded we the people have given up our right.


Give up that duty and responsibility and you invite your worst nightmare to control you, your family, loved ones and all you own including your life and everyone else's life. Allow the morally bankrupt to convince the people what they want is desirable and you are going to find out why you have this duty to protect your rights.


It is hard to imagine what stupidity drives people to accept infringements on the self-evident rights we have had since man began to use his brain.


Is it the mealy mouthed inducement of the morally bankrupt that impress us or the ability of these charlatans and oppressors to hide the truth in complex illusions that what they do is good for us? That we are to lazy and uncaring to bother to figure out what they are doing? That kind of irresponsible neglect has a very high price, do you want to pay it?


A firearm or any equal weapon simply allows us to say no thanks and government and other bullies have no choice but to back down. It is a symbol and tool of citizens power to balance governments power. A gun or ownership is not the right. It is a protective tool. Protect the right. Value the right and the tools will also be valued because they like everyone should protect the right.


Read it and realise why it was written. These are such beautiful and meaning full words of great wisdom from people who did care. Heed them that is all they asked.


Declaration of Independence and Affirmation of the Constitution.


We affirm our belief and loyalty to these great truths that we hold to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.


But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object contrives a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. When those bodies of government whose purpose is to guarantee and protect the liberties, freedoms and protections in law, fail to sustain and nurture such objectives, and instead subvert and apply with selective and arbitrary judgement to suit the agenda not of the people, then the people must intervene.
