For Constitutional Government
(Republican  -   District 6 of S.C.)
   

Election Day Countdown to 6 Nov 12

Most of the problems facing this country today can be traced back to the point at which our lawmakers started abandoning the Constitution and other principles which guided our Founding Fathers.

Since 1913, the Constitutional Republic our Founders blessed us with, has gradually been transformed into a democratic socialist society incapable of securing for us the "Blessings of Liberty" for which so many fought and died.

Today the majority of our lawmakers in Congress do not understand the vast differences between a Republic and a Democracy, the free enterprise system and socialism, or the difference between Christian principles and secular humanism.   They also, don't understand the proper function of government or why our government came into existence in the first place.   (For more click the links above.)

And yet, we continue sending these ignorant, arrogant, people to Congress to uphold a Constitution that they don't understand or respect.   In 1803, George Tucker made the same complaint with these words:

"If an acquaintance with the Constitution and laws of our country be requisite to preserve the blessing of freedom to the people, it necessarily follows that those who are to frame laws or administer the government should possess a thorough knowledge of these subjects.   For what can be more absurd than that person wholly ignorant of the Constitution should presume to make laws pursuant thereto?   Or that one who neither understands the Constitution nor the law, should boldly adventure to administer the government!" George Tucker, 1803.

The Founders understood that God created man with inalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and Property.   So, they created our government with a Constitution designed to protect those God-given rights.   Today however, we find that our government refuses to protect the Life of the unborn, denies our right to protect our own Life with its misguided gun control laws, devises socialist schemes to take Property from one and give it to another, while forcing us to give up over half of our Liberty working to pay for these unconstitutional programs.

These things have occurred because those in office today do not understand that all government power comes from that delegated to it by the people.   The government therefore, cannot rise above its creator (the people), to do anything that the people themselves cannot do. Since the people have the right to protect their own Life, Liberty, and Property, they can create government to provide assistance in areas of protection such as the military, law enforcement, fire protection, etc..   The people however, cannot hire a government to take from one and give to another regardless of the intended purpose.   Every redistribution of the wealth scheme foreign or domestic is unconstitutional, unlawful and immoral.

Socialism is unconstitutional because Article 1, Section 8 only authorizes Congress to borrow, tax, and spend for less than 20 different purposes, which are clearly defined and restricted primarily to external matters such as war and international concerns.   The few remaining powers are related to only those things that state governments cannot feasibly do, like coining money, establishing federal courts, etc.   As James Madison explained, it is the States that were to be responsible for "all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people".   To remove all doubt as to their intentions, the Founders added the 10th Amendment to the Constitution which states, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,...are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people".   Since, there is no authorization in the Constitution for socialist programs, all of them are UNconstitutional.

Socialism is unlawful for government because it is unlawful for the people who created government to take from one and give to another.   If the people themselves practiced socialism, they would go to JAIL for stealing.

Socialism is immoral because it requires the violation of God-given property rights (Thou shalt not steal) and the promotion of class warfare (Thou shalt not covet).

A little bit of socialism is as possible as a little bit of pregnancy.

If "We The People" continue to elect those unwilling or unable to understand and follow the Constitution, we will surely deserve the resulting enslavement.

Some of the changes necessary to get us back on the right tract are:

Pay Congress based on their performance by deducting from their salary the cost to the average taxpayer of any legislation that a Congressman supports which is not clearly authorized in Article 1, Section 8 of The U.S. Constitution.

Reduce the size of the Federal Government by abolishing or returning to the states all federal departments, agencies and programs found lacking constitutional granted authority (See Article 1, Section 8 of The U.S. Constitution).

Repeal the 14th Amendment or remove the words that gave the federal government jurisdiction over ALL people.   Before this Amendment, the people were citizens of the State wherein they resided ONLY.   The States should be sovereign and make all law concerning the lives, liberty, and property of the people, except when the citizen themselves volunteer into that jurisdiction by accepting employment from the federal government or by violating constitutional federal law.   Today most federal law is UNconstitutional, including laws concerning abortion, homosexuality, guns, drugs, social engineering, regulation, direct taxes (I.R.S.) etc..   Fifty governments seeking solutions to problems rather than one is the goal of STATES' RIGHTS.

Repeal the 17th Amendment so that the Senators would again be appointed by their state legislatures to protect States' Rights as the Founders intended.   We would again have one branch of government with a vested interest in keeping the federal government small.

Replace all direct taxes with indirect taxes by replacing income tax, property tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax with sales or consumption tax collected at the State level.   Article 1, Section 9, of the US Constitution states, "No capitation, or other direct tax shall be laid,...." The income tax was imposed briefly after the War Between The Federal Government and The Southern States.   However, the US Supreme Court overturned it with these words, "The income tax is indeed a direct tax and therefore unconstitutional." Pollock v. Farmers Loan & Trust Co., (1895)   The income tax was unconstitutional then and is unconstitutional NOW along with all other direct taxes "...unless in Proportion to the Census...", Article 1, Section 9.

Reform Social Security by gradually replacing it with Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA's) which would allow workers to retire with more income than that received while working.   Our current system is destined to fail regardless of all the promises made by dishonest or ignorant politicians.   (more here)

Stop Activist Judges From Making Law by exercising the authority granted to Congress in Article III, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution,   "...the Supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, ...with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make".   Congress also has the authority to impeach activist judges.

Get us out of the United Nations and get the United Nations out of the United States.   One World Government under socialism is the goal of this Godless organization started by communist.   Even though the U.S. provides more than 25% of the funding for the U.N., we only get one vote.

Promote morality and traditional family values by teaching the principles upon which this country was founded rather than the LIES of evolution, humanism, and socialism   (more here and here).

Build a strong military recognizing that "Peace Through Strength" is always our best policy.   Learn what motivates terrorist Here

Stop illegal immigration by joining Congressman Tom Tancredo who offers solutions Here.

Declare War on Socialism and Humanism.   These two interlocking philosophical points of view have gradually replaced the Founders' self-evident truths with lies designed to deceive and enslave the masses.

Control Criminals not Guns.   Criminals by definition are lawbreakers and will not alter their behavior in deference to a law.   Enacting gun laws to control criminals makes as much sense as trying to require rapist to wear condoms.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." Thomas Jefferson
