We the people.. Perhaps the 3 most lucid words in the most important document in history.
A document written BY the people, FOR the people.. To finally put in black and white the inalienable rights, freedoms and liberties of all people, and perhaps more importantly the inalienable restrictions to be placed on any government to protect those rights liberties and freedoms of the PEOPLE.
This includes ALL rights, not just one or two that is conveniently picked out of the list that you personally approve of. And if you don't like this concept of personal freedom and rights, or aren't willing to be eternally vigilant in fighting for them, as our forefathers were, then you can leave. You are not welcome here.
By nature a simple document, designed to be timeless, and applicable to any point in time, be it 1776 or 2776, and anyone that attempts to mutate this framework should be tried and convicted of treason.
While this has happened many times over the years, even to the very document itself ( such as the 21st amendment for example ) it does not make it appropriate or right, nor is the slow progression towards a socialist state.
Yes i said socialist, not fascist. I believe we are heading towards socialism. While it may not be absolute and black and white, the control extended over the US commerce, and the re-distribution of wealth via obscene tax rates puts the government in virtual control of all industry and funds. This is what I consider socialism, with of course all the reduction of rights and privacy and independence of its citizens that go along with that sort of government.
You may argue that unless the government truly owns the commerce we have something other then a socialist system, but if the same result if the same, what is the difference?
You may also argue that the various rights and liberties discussed in the constitution ( and its attached bill of rights ) are not absolute and should be changed over time to reflect current times". But you are wrong, and totally misunderstand the INTENT of the framers.. ( although you would be correct in that the modern interpretation of the document, is that our current government feels that it changeable at a whim )
Thanks for taking the time to read this
