God Bless America - Volume 1

I find it rather amusing as today is the day that 231 years ago the framers of the United States constitution finally came together to vote on the document and take it back to their states to officially vote on it within their own state’s assemblies, and then bring it back to have it ratified by the Continental Congress, that most people don’t actually know that. I listened to a lot of those “man On The Street” interviews this week on my favorite radio shows where they simply made a spectacle of the stupidity of the people walking out front of their buildings. It might sound harsh, but unfortunately I have come to view the total ignorance of this country in general to be far more than laughable because it is slowly starting to become the very downfall of it. We take great delight in acknowledging how Islamic Theocracies take their Qur’an and simply dictate it to the ignorant and then the next thing you know we have teenagers with bombs strapped to them in the name of Allah, but we never acknowledge that that is what we call schools here.

I have always encouraged people to read the Bill of Rights because it is written in plain English, and dictates the laws that Congress must abide to, and not the laws that the general population have towards each other. In other words, the Constitution was a contract by the States to be represented by a Federal Government, and the Bill of Rights was the articles that Congress was bound to treat all the people it serves by. Most left wing factions have butchered the crap out of this and I often find myself amused yet scared at how well people have relied on others to explain it to them. Most importantly I think it is important to remember the context to which it was all placed as well. At the time the people that framed the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were at war with their own government as it sought to succeed from the very government and at the same time was making a set of laws and values that protected people from the new government that would take its place. It was not a chunk of land that was uninhabited and the rule of law was being imposed on both ends with weaponry, as it is in ALL cultures in the beginning.

The preamble of the Constitution is as follows … “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Then it simply goes through a long trail of how the Government will be comprised “The Legislative Branch” {Congress} “The Presidency” {Executive} “The Judiciary” {Courts} all in plain English as I had said and not knowing it is ignorance because it effects your life, and not knowing it means that you are subject to tyrannical interpretation. I don’t really need to go any further on that but the last part also known as the Amendments that were added in the first Constitutional Convention in 1791 are what really needs explaining.

Article I - Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. - You will note the most important part of this is the first word “Congress” as it tends to get lost in all of these arguments. It says nowhere that I will respect your religion, or even acknowledge it. Atheists love to throw this one around as their mantra of how “Your” religion is bad and doesn’t belong anywhere, and they have the right to say what they want about you. It’s become a form of religion unto itself to be anti religion and the fact remains that all this right says is that Congress can’t do anything to anyone over it. People who are not members of Congress actually have the right to retaliate in any way they see fit, that doesn’t break any laws. Be creative because hell can be cast upon the Self Righteous within the scope of the law. I suggest air horn cans because you have the right to free speech as well and those things hurt people’s ears.

Article II - A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. - Without a doubt the most butchered amendment next to the first. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is tantamount to the ability of American citizens to keep living in a free society. Stalin, Hitler, Chavez, Castro, and every maniacal dictator in the history of mankind has always maintained their power by making sure that their citizenry has no access to the weapons necessary to ensure their rights. Many have said that nobody needs mortars, machine guns, hand grenades, etc etc but rest assured when “They” come to get your .22 that they let you keep for hunting ducks, they will have them. It always starts with the powers at the top, not the ones at the bottom.

Article III - No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. - It was a typical British thing to do, to seize property of people to disrupt society and impose their dominance. As the years went on it became the popular way and means of anyone who would wish to keep the people “down” and in turn it was important to make sure that Congress didn’t start forcing the citizens to give up their freedoms in the name of a military. Again, it was and still is commonplace for the most disgusting of governments to steal from the poor to keep their military power over them.

Amendment IV - The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. - It was popular for the King to order that anyone he didn’t trust be humiliated by seizure of assets and their property be searched until they could find something to hold against them. The Congress was specifically given the order that they could not do this under any circumstances except those that would be given them by legal written documentation of a Judiciary. This gets mangled by every thug on Earth considering the Police to be Congress. For those of you that don’t know this, they are not, and actually have the legal authority of the Judiciary, as they are unelected. Again it is a classic example of fact being changed by rumor, ignorance and misinformation.

Amendment V - No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. - As you can see this one really stands out these days as most people {again stricken with ignorance} don’t actually know the wording of said right and how it works. The fear that uneducated people could be taken into court and accused of crimes that they had no comprehension of was a reality in those days. Many people under British Common Law got put to death {forcing them to have to eliminate their death penalty because they will never fix their own legal “dumb-assedness” so at least this way innocent people rot in prison forever instead of die} and by making it illegal for Congress to force people to testify it made it a lot harder to frame the uneducated masses of the country. This amendment also set forth the other exceptions based on military {war crimes} as well as when being put before a grand jury { in the event of a REALLY serious crime that requires more zest} just in case of looming ignorance and judicial abuse. It also protects you from having your things taken for impending criminalities that haven’t been proven, or to be continually taken into court until they can finally prove you guilty.

Amendment VI - In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense. - The easiest way to explain this is “Nothing disinfects like sunlight” since the European method of legal jurist prudence during the 1700’s involved a dungeon and the accused never to be heard from again.

Amendment VII - In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law. - Basically an extension of the amendments previous in being able to get a fair trial by your peers and not being continually in the court system by a tyrannical magistrate. The King of England loved making his enemies spend every waking day for the rest of their lives be spent in a court so they had no time to do anything else. Most usually gave up and killed them selves so their families could find another provider as they were unable to work. Hitler found this to be a great practice a few centuries later.

Amendment VIII - Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. - Again we need to remember that this Government was trying to make sure that the ways of the old Government didn’t unduly punish people. Part of the law was to make sure that Congress never got beyond its own power and held people unjustly or punished them unfairly. {Keep in mind that this as all amendments only applies to American citizens as pertaining to our Government. Nobody being held prisoner of war is entitled to ANY constitutional rights and are only kept in favor by the terms of the Geneva Convention assuming that they represent another legitimate signatory of the Geneva Convention in good standing}

Amendment IX - The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. - In other words, “This only pertains to Congress and what they can or can not do to you” or like I say often “See even they knew back then that you all would forget.”

Amendment X - The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. - Basically this part was put in to remind the Congress that the entire Constitution was still an agreement by the Federal Government to control the borders and regulate trade, and NOT a contract to govern over it. Unfortunately we as a nation are so far removed from this that someone in Utah that doesn’t like Utah state law can simply go to an appeals court in San Francisco full of total whacko’s and get Utah law changed, or other things basically along those lines. Many still believe that the South had every right to succeed from the United States because their rights to create their own laws on a state by state basis were being trampled, and they were right in my opinion.

Now as I had said these were simply added afterwards by a fair and legal constitutional process and by reading the Federalist Papers you can actually see what was really going through the minds of the elected Congress that were filing these amendments. We have simply accepted the United States Constitution and its Amendments to be a living document and seem to think that it changes from year to year based on the collective of “thinking” of the times. It’s not very smart to live your lives that way as most people given the opportunity to actually read it as it is written can see that indoctrination at the level of education, media, and public discourse can change anything given time. It’s hard to believe that the men that started this nation would look down upon what they see today and grimace, or smile, or have any opinion whatsoever. Times have changed but the documents that have started and hold this nation together have not, and it is best to leave things alone until you are damn sure that you know what you are doing. For those that always look to the next generation and assume that they are the ruination of the world should look back at the last generation and ask themselves if THEY have made it any better than the generation before them. I happen to be one of those that look back several generations and then look forward to getting rid of the last generation to get the sanity of this nation back ;8o)
