Fast and Furious

"Let me explain... No, there is too much... Let me sum up."

Okay, I’m throwing this together quickly, and I’m not going into too much detail as I don’t want to bog down the main points.

What I want to talk about is:

Why this Health Care bill is unconstitutional.

And why the Senators that voted for this Health care abomination are traitors.
----
The Founding Fathers put tremendous thought into the constitution and were as careful as they could be with the checks and balances they created. Americans are beginning to remember that we aren’t a Democracy, by many still don’t know what we were created to be. We hear the word Republic and we think we know what it means, but do we?

The FF’s created the US to be a Mixed Federal Republic. Lets look at those three words, shall we?

--
-Mixed.

The Greeks believed there to be 3 pure systems of politics

1) Monarchy- rule by one

2) Aristocracy- rule by the few

3) Democracy- rule by many

The FF’s were terrified of democracy because it gave the mob the right to shift rights and property from those that have to those that have not, and will eventually lead, ironically, to a single rule dictatorship. The Aristocracy, on the other hand, tended to shift rights and property from the many to themselves. Monarchy, more often then not, also eventually decayed to a dictatorship. Each type of politics will eventually remove freedom, and create a tyrannical environment. So, then, what to do?

As each pure system looks to increase the power of those in charge the best course of action is to make all three a part of the game, and accountable to the other two. As each is power greedy they will keep the others from gaining too much control.

How was this done?

Monarchy- Presidency, elected by the electoral college (not the people)

Aristocracy- Senate, elected by the States (not the people)

Democracy- House of Representatives, elected by the people.

-And the Federal part of things?

A Federal System is one where power is divided between two main parties. In this case, a central authority with few and define rights, and constituent political units with numerous and undefined rights. Both the central authority and the constituents have certain right and are given means to retain those rights. The Constitution was written with the precise goals of outlying specific jobs and abilities of the Central Government. The States until, oh about 1865, always had the secession right and the right to veto a Federal law still lay in the hands of the State elected Senate. If we don’t like how the Feds are doing business then we have the right to either fix the Fed or leave the Union.

The civil war gave the Federal Government the big stick with which to bully the states: try to leave and we will kill you. Now it is no longer even a notion of an idea. Except in Texas.

The Federal Government now uses the idea of implied powers to circumvent the Constitution to the point that it might as well not exist. Understanding that they couldn’t foresee everything the congress may need to address the Founders added this little gem.

“[Congress shall have the power…] To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the Unite States, or in any Department of Officer thereof.”

In plainer English, the Congress has the right to make laws that help them do the stuff the Constitution says it can do.

The Congress has, of course, decided that this means they can do whatever they want to do as long as they believe that what they want is “necessary and proper for carrying into Execution” of their powers. However, this is sort of like the Pig deciding if we will have pork or beef for dinner. It is suppose to be used in the execution of powers they already have, and is not a means to give them the right to powers not outlined by the Constitution.

-They can create The United States Air Force as an extension of their rights to raise an Army and maintain a Navy that the Founders couldn’t have foreseen.

-It does not give them the ADDED right to create a mandatory Social Security program.

-Third, Republic.
1. a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.

Sovereign
1. a monarch; a king, queen, or other supreme ruler.

Got that? The president isn't the sovereign, the people are. But the idea here is not Mob Rule; rather it’s the idea that all rights are inherent to an individual, that individual then trades part of his rights to the government. I have the right to defend my property, therefore I can give government the right to defend my property. In a Republic one can not give the government a right they don’t posses themselves. I don’t have the right to steal my neighbors property, so I cannot give the government the right to steal my neighbors property and give it to me.

----
What happened on Sunday was not only a demolition of the Constitution it was a slap in the face of every American. The Federal Government gave itself the right to pass a law forcing the Sovereign buy a particular product, whether they want it or not.

What do you call someone that knowingly breaks the law? A criminal.

What do you call someone that knowingly steals anothers money? A thief.

What about someone who violates their oaths to their government? Who betrays the trust of those they govern? Those that use treachery to achieve their own goals and ambitions?

Treason
1. the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
2. a violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state.
3. the betrayal of a trust of confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

Why, I do believe we call that treason and those guilty are traitors.
