The Proper Role of the Constitution

I have studied all forms of governing and I can assure you this is the best. —>


I always have and always will believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, due process, and the three branches of government which balance the powers of governing.

I also believe in state and individual rights, when federal or state law violates the Constitution, at that point it becomes the state’s and/or individual’s duty to resist those unconstitutional laws through due process.

I have studied all forms of governing and I can assure you this is the best. Is it perfect? Nothing is perfect. However I encourage you to study and discover the teachings of the founding fathers of this country and realize their genius. They were brave, tough intellectual men who understood freedom and liberty.

Remember this, one of the main reasons why it’s important to follow the Constitution and delegate powers to the states to put together and enact their own plans for their community, like healthcare, education, social programs, etc, is because the states have written into their Constitutions the right for them to balance their own budgets. As a result, they must make sure funds are available for them to use for state programs.  The states tend to write their programs to suit their particular environment better than the one-size-fits-all approach of the federal government, this puts more creative and competitive input into these programs, so states can learn from each other and adopt each others ideas when one system runs better than the next.

Competition and diversity is always far more productive than monopolies. In 46 states across the nation, a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) has been enacted into state constitutions. I have always been a long time proponent of adopting the same principle for the federal government but we need more awareness and support to make that happen.

In addition, it’s important to be involved in the political process beyond just the presidential elections. Believe it or not, the president has limited power – he or she is co-equal to one third of the branches of government.

The checks and balances of our government are as important as the causes that we are fighting for, we the people are involved in the process and put people into positions of power who will reflect the will of the people.

You cannot depend on government for every aspect of your life such as healthcare, higher education, personal safety, food and shelter, etc. Take responsibility on your own for your direction and your future. If you are expecting government to solve your problems, I assure you, nine times out of ten you will be disappointed.  Never underestimate the power, strength, and productivity of the private sector.

The Constitution was designed to control the government, not for the government to control us.  Never forget that.
