…to ourselves and our Posterity
The Declaration of Independence –
–That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Amendment IX –
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
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.
The Founders of our Nation were classically trained men. They were well versed in politics, government, law, religion, finance and came from such diverse backgrounds as to be able to identify and represent the People at large. After literally years of debate over the best form of governance for the People of the United States they settled on the Constitution for the United States of America as the Rule of Law. In spite of their personal interests, experience and the traditions of mankind they determined through what is known now as a Republican Form of Government that “this Constitution” was in the best interests of the People and their Posterity.
The issues that are considered to be the Blessings of Liberty were hotly debated and fought over, sometimes by duels and fist fights. Today, the United States is far more diverse with more cultures and technologies than were envisioned at the time of the founding of the Nation. Nonetheless, when applied, the Constitution for the United States of America does not cause harm to its People. When applied, it does “secure the Rights of the People” as envisioned by the Founders. We the People have been alienated from it through lack of education of it.
Amendment 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.
Although many do not observe the religious beliefs of the Founders, we believe that it is prudent to consider their point of view in defining the terms they used to draft our Nation’s Laws. Without understanding how they used the words it is nearly impossible to grasp the meaning in context, which leads to many People for whom the Constitution was designed to protect to be carried away by “Patriot Myths”. We the People of the Republic for the United States of America submit the information on this website for your consideration, review and reference that we may together obtain for ourselves and our Posterity the Blessings of Liberty.
