Should free people be jailed for resisting what others swore publicly and willingly not to do?

“…whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”
– Thomas Jefferson (1798)

“…a law repugnant to the Constitution is void…”
– Marbury v. Madison, (1803)

“An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no right; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”
– Norton v. Shelby County, (1886)


The 10th Amendment:

“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.”


Choose one:

The Constitution or Socialism?

-We choose Freedom-

WE DARE ANYONE TO TELL US WE CANNOT 

_______________________________

 

Are they enforcing the Constitution,
or what comes out of Washington, DC?

 

WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE THEM ANSWER THAT QUESTION

“Which view of the Constitution do you hold?”
 

  • A list of Enumerated Powers, in Article 1, Section 8, severely limiting the function and scope of Washington, D.C. so that we can live free from a powerful central government.

Or…

  • A ‘living document’, removing all constitutional restrictions and giving a vast number of people in Washington, D.C. power, without limits, over our lives and property.

________________________________

The Constitution needs to mean what it says if we are going to be free from power and money obsessed bureaucrats.

So… we gave them this:

[ OPEN LETTER TO LANCASTER CO. OATH TAKERS ]

_________________________________

They do NOT want to answer how they view the Constitution. 

Such a simple question.  Why so difficult to answer?

_________________________________

Help us make them tell us who they are obeying and what they are enforcing:

By making these three people, and then the rest, answer this simple, pivotal question, we can begin again to use the Constitution to do what it was designed to do:

  1. Read this:

[ OPEN LETTER TO LANCASTER CO. OATH TAKERS ]

  1. Call one or all of the three people above every week:
  1. Leave them a short message:
    Give them your name and  – very politely, but with authority – tell them that you want them to answer the question in the OPEN LETTER.

_________________________________

We are headed into very trying times.

Do you really want to do that without knowing their answer?

 

Our Constitutional Crisis: 
Two polar opposite views on the Constitution result in two completely different Oaths of Office, to two different groups of people, and in two radically different forms of government.

How they view the Constitution tells us exactly which oath they swore and to whom they swore it.  It should be to us, not to federal employees in political parties in Washington, D.C., obeying and defending them from us by enforcing all of their unconstitutional, unlawful actions.

They cannot swear to obey and defend the Constitution and then never talk about that which they swore to obey and defend.  How is exactly is that honoring their Oath of Office?

Asking and answering this question leads to a very specific conversation, and that is why they are afraid to answer.  That, however, makes me want to make them answer even more.

Before you call anyone, educate yourself about the nature of the Republic in which you live…

Our Republic

Where Freedom is a virtue and control is a vice

Our Constitution:

  • Four pages that created, defines, and severely limits our federal government.
  • 70% is internal, administrative, and structural.
  • 30%:  The Enumerated Powers in Article 1, Section 8.
    • 7 National Defense related tasks.
    • 7 Inter-State and foreign Trade related tasks.
  • When federal employees are constrained by our Bill of Rights, the 10th Amendment specifically, the Enumerated Powers, and their Oath of Office, we are free.  When they are not, we are not.

The 10th Amendment:

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.

  • Hated and ignored by the Left, creating cognitive dissonance in them between Socialism and control vs. The Constitution and Freedom.
  • Created by us to protect ourselves from all Leftist/Central Planning forms of government.
  • Called “the foundation of our Constitution” by Thomas Jefferson.
  • The line between Freedom and control along which our Constitution, our fortress wall, is built.
  • Our greatest, but not only, tool in reining in the federal government and its employees.

The Bill of Rights:

  • Our Rights that our governments cannot touch.
  • Created because of how God says that we should treat each other, and because we know very well how governments abuse people.
  • Something never intended to be controlled, modified, or to reside in the hands of government employees.
  • Rights that come from God and that are eternal; not favors from man that are transient.

The Oath of Office:

  • Sworn publicly and willingly to us to obey and defend the Constitution as written in order to guarantee our Freedom.
  • Not sworn to federal employees to obey and defend them by enforcing everything of which they can conceive.
  • Mandatory, regardless of your party or lack thereof.
  • If broken through a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object to evince a design to reduce us under absolute Despotism, the immediate and simplest consequence of which is that the Oath breaker loses all moral and legal authority.

The alternative to Freedom is Control, no matter what they call it:

  • Socialism cannot function without control.  More Socialism requires more control.
  • All Leftist ideologies, whether king or Communism, are simply different flavors of the same thing, and all are blocked by our Constitution and the principles in the Declaration of Independence.
  • The real divide in our Republic is between people that neither want not need government at the center of their lives, and those that are desperate for Central Planning in all things.  Almost all other conflicts being fomented by the Left flow from the reason for that fundamental difference in values.

Enumerated Powers, Delegated Responsibilities, and the 10th Amendment:

“The plan of the convention declares that the power of Congress, or, in other words, of the national legislature, shall extend to certain enumerated cases. This specification of particulars evidently excludes all pretensions to a general legislative authority, because an affirmative grant of special powers would be absurd, as well as useless, if a general authority was intended.”

– Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 83

“It is the people, and not the judges, who are entitled to say what their constitution means, for the constitution is theirs, it belongs to them and not to their servants in office – any other theory is incompatible with the foundation principles of our government.”

– President Theodore Roosevelt

“If the United States go beyond their powers, if they make a law which the Constitution does not authorize, it is void.”

– Oliver Ellsworth, the Supreme Court’s third Chief Justice

“With respect to the two words “general welfare” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.”

– President James Madison

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce. … The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives and liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State.” – James Madison, author of the Constitution

“Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.”

– President Thomas Jefferson

President Thomas Jefferson on Judicial Tyranny:

“Nothing in the Constitution has given them [the federal judges] a right to decide for the Executive, more than to the Executive to decide for them…  The opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves, in their own sphere of action, but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.”

– Letter to Abigail Adams, September 11, 1804

“The original error [was in] establishing a judiciary independent of the nation, and which, from the citadel of the law, can turn its guns on those they were meant to defend, and control and fashion their proceedings to its own will.”

– Letter to John Wayles Eppes, 1807

“Our Constitution . . . intending to establish three departments, co-ordinate and independent that they might check and balance one another, it has given—according to this opinion to one of them alone the right to prescribe rules for the government of others; and to that one, too, which is unelected by and independent of the nation…  The Constitution, on this hypothesis, is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please.”

– Letter to Judge Spencer Roane, Sept. 6, 1819

“You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.  Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so… and their power [is] the more dangerous, as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.  The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.”

– Letter to William Jarvis, Sept. 28, 1820

“The judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working under ground to undermine the foundations of our confederated fabric.  They are construing our constitution from a co-ordination of a general and special government to a general and supreme one alone.  This will lay all things at their feet, and they are too well versed in English law to forget the maxim, ‘boni judicis est ampliare jurisdictionem’ [good judges have ample jurisdiction] …  A judiciary independent of a king or executive alone, is a good thing; but independence of the will of the nation is a solecism, at least in a republican government.”

– Letter to Thomas Ritchie, Dec. 25, 1820

“The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”

-Letter to Charles Hammond, August 18, 1821

“The great object of my fear is the Federal Judiciary.  That body, like gravity, ever acting with noiseless foot and unalarming advance, gaining ground step by step and holding what it gains, is engulfing insidiously the special governments into the jaws of that which feeds them.”

– Letter to Judge Spencer Roane, 1821

“At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government.  Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance.  In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life if secured against all liability to account.”

– Letter to A. Coray, October 31, 1823

 “One single object… [will merit] the endless gratitude of the society: that of restraining the judges from usurping legislation.”

– Letter to Edward Livingston, March 25, 1825

President Abraham Lincoln on Judicial Tyranny:

“… The candid citizen must confess that if the policy of the government, upon vital questions, affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties, in personal actions, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having, to that extent, practically resigned their government into the hands of that eminent tribunal.”
