Feds Ignore U.S. Constitution
When U.S. citizens make contracts for goods, services, or other reasons, each party to the contract is expected to abide by it. However, there is one contract that seriously affects every citizen, but few pay attention to it. It is the U.S. Constitution, a contract between our citizens and the federal government.
The original 13 states established our federal government with very limited powers, primarily to repel invasions. Individual states were responsible for most government actions. If a state became too oppressive, people could simply move to another state.
The Constitution authorizes only Congress to make federal laws. Hence, a Supreme Court decision or a presidential Executive Order cannot become a law. Yet, these decisions and orders have been used as laws.
In the more than 200 years that our Constitution has been in effect, only 27 amendments have been ratified. Today, those who want to make a change, simply circumvent the Constitution. There is no constitutional power to have federal involvement in education, housing, health, foreign aid, and many other activities. Therefore, about 80% of what the federal government does is unconstitutional. See www.thenewamerican.com for details.
We are living in a partial police state because the feds do not obey our Constitution. Unless enough of our citizens demand that the feds abide by the Constitution, we soon will be living in a total police state.
