…this Constitution for the United States of America.

by

In so many ways our Government has slowly become their Government.  By that I mean we are supposed to be a self-rule Government and it has become they rule Government.  From the passage of unconstitutional programs to the liberties that become confined by laws and actions of the Government.

Poll after poll shows the majority of the people were  against the bailout Bill, against the stimulus bill and against the proposed health care bill.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, did not describe how a reconciliation scenario might play out. But she said, “When we have a bill, which we will in a matter of days, then that is the bill that we can sell.”

So in short the game is now what can or how can we sell an unwanted and unconstitutional bill to the voter?  Bob Beckel made the argument this morning that Social Security, Medicad and Medicare were all initially unpopular programs that are now very popular and so will be health care.

So the test here isn’t the constitutionally of a program, but if you can ram it through and have people get use to the idea?  Where is the outrage against the Constitution?  Where is the outrage that those unconstitutional programs are the major damage inflected upon our financial stability?  Where is the outrage that this new assault upon the constitution, the tax payers wallet and the liberties of the American People?

I spoke before on the issue of private property.  Well private property is more than just a person’s land and house.  At a low point of our early years slaves were considered nothing more than property.

The point here surely isn’t that people should be property, but things other than land are.  Money, which you earn is every bit as much your property as your home is, no matter what it says at the top of the note.

You could also say that taxation is a perverted style of eminent domain because if your hard-earned cash is your property then the Government should be considered to be taking your property for public use.

Now we all understand that there are times when private property must yield to a public or greater good.  That concept goes back as far as Rome, though they weren’t as kind about it.

We all recognize the need for certain services that are paid for, roads, police..etc, by taxes.  But how is any average tax payer served by Government assuming ultra-Constitutional powers and taking, or diminishing my property, (money), and handing it out to others?

Where in the Constitution does the Federal Government gets to FORCE any of us to hand over a share of our hard-earned property and make us under threat of fines or jail, to participate in a health care plan, so that others can receive that service for free or at a much more reduced rate than I?

I believe that the idea of money being personal property is on solid ground and in-line with the thinking of the Founders.  I know this because they intentionally left out the power to tax individual income when the Constitution was debated and ratified.  So if we take the words of one of those Founders, James Madison who said; “As a man is said to have a right to his property, he may equally said to have property in his rights.

The Government should NEVER be presumed to have authority except in the areas outlined in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution.  The Constitution is less a document of Federal Authority than it is a restraint upon the authority of the Federal Government.

Which takes us back to the opening paragraph; “In so many ways our Government has slowly become their Government.”  We are long overdue to take it back from them.

    Good Morning Chas,
    This is the most corrupt Administration, I have ever seen in my Life time….everything they do is against our Constitution and the American way of life…but they dont care…. because they have a Agenda,
    but there is a problem…. this Agenda and these Policies will bankrupt our country, I have said this before,
    This Healthcare is nothing more then a government takerover, in more ways then we might think….Reagan….50 yrs ago! http://bit.ly/bQn09s
    Great Post Chas.
    =========================
    Thanks Sal. I believe that when yo have to go through this much to pass something, bribes, threats, slight of hand and still only win by 4 votes, it should be scrapped. Too many close calls here between want it and those who don’t, it is best to err on the side of reason. One sixth of the economy is too much to change or take over when the vote is so closely divided.

    Love what I just heard….Lets take the special deals out of the healthcare bill except mine…such is life in Congress.
    ============================
    Almost as good as “we have to pass this health care bill in order to know what is going to be in it“. From people who pass bills on a regular basis that they have never read.

    Under this Administration, they will never be enough power in Washington. The more they take, the more they want to take.

    No man’s life, liberty, or property is safe while any legislature is in session.
    — Mark Twain (1866)
    ================================
    I’d say that is true of both parties Frank. The problem is people are slow to see it.

    I would agree with that absolutely..and we all understand that there is NEVER enough land, money, power, driven by the greed for it all! So, here we are, and we never meant to be here ever. We are reminded that nothing is ever ‘free’….and ‘free men’ must always ALWAYS, fight to stay the ;government’ which, in the course of history, does not actually support the idea of people being ‘free’ at all.
    ==============================
    Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
    Thomas Jefferson

  5. Frank C Says:

    The more they take, the more they want to take. It is a never ending cycle and we need to take back our government. Another fine piece.
    =========================
    Or you can say the more they take the more we need, but you are spot on, we need to regain control.

    Good Morning, Chas. Interesting that the very programs that are slowly draining our Republic also fly in the face of the Constitution. Our founding fathers were not just a bunch of angry rebels out to get rid of the British. Once that was done, it took years of thought and study to come up with our form of government, and the limiting of its powers. Where we have gone wrong is to assume that it is the place of government to supply all our needs, and that these entitlements are somehow now viewed as rights.
    =======================
    I’m certain that it wasn’t me that brought that to your attention, but your comment is exactly the point I was making. And it is always my point. The further we drift from the original content and context of the Constitution the worse our Country seems to run.

    How odd is that?
