Harvard professor and philosopher George Santayana wrote, “Those who can’t remember the past are doomed to repeat it.” King George III had co-opted the Church to do his bidding in Britain and the pilgrims came to America to escape persecution.
Early American patriots were governing themselves in America for 150 years. Then King George III declared "Americans were his subjects, who would do what he told them." In response American patriots wrote their own declaration.
In the Declaration of Independence, one of the grievances listed was that King George III had erected a multitude of new offices to harass our people and eat out their substance.
Today we have multiple agencies writing rules with enforcement power making it harder to survive in our businesses and families. If that is not enough, district appeal courts have been applying individual cases and controversies as binding national injunctions.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor stated, “All of the legal defense funds out there are looking for people with court of appeals experience, because court of appeals is where policy is made”.
Courts deny inalienable rights, while creating manmade rights which can just as easily be taken away. We have legislators that worship corporate donations in exchange for a monopoly on one side and on the other side Neo-Marxists that want total control over corporations. Greed, power, and control emerge as the end goal.
Freedom of religion and the right to self-protection are being sacrificed on the altar of federal courts. The pursuit of happiness allows the private sector to find solutions, but the federal government seeks to control the private sector for more power and control. How soon our world is about to change if American citizens remain silent.
There is a solution that is spreading across the nation. The Founders included a remedy in the U.S. constitution: Article V. We can call a Convention of States to propose amendments to the Constitution.
The proposal by subject matter by Convention of States:
- Limit the scope, power and jurisdiction of the federal government
- Term limits for federal officials
- Fiscal restraints on the federal government.
Please contact your state legislator encouraging them to support our Article V resolution on the subject matters listed above.
