Brief Lesson on U.S. Constitution

Four Things You Need To Know About Our US Constitution

Written by Kris Anne Hall

1. The Constitution is the standard for Government.  Not the Supreme Court.  Not a majority vote in Congress.  Not the need or will of the People.

“…the power of the Constitution predominates.  Any thing, therefore, that shall be enacted by Congress contrary thereto, will not have the force of law. ~ James Wilson, PA Ratifying Convention, 1787

2. The Constitution is a contract between the States that created the federal government. It is not an agreement between the feds and the people. That is a temporal impossibility. The federal government cannot be a party to a contract when they didn’t even exist until the contract was ratified.

“…consequently, that the ultimate right of the [States], to judge whether the compact has been dangerously violated, must extend to violations by one delegated authority as well as by another–by the judiciary as well as by the executive, or the legislature.” ~James Madison, 1800 Report on the Virginia Resolutions

3. Original Intent is the only legal way to apply the terms of the Constitution.  Contract law dictates that the “meeting of the minds” is the controlling standard for any contract.  Ask your professor, pundit, or politician if they will allow their employment contract to be applied as a “living breathing document” and quickly see how hypocritical they really are.

“There is no position which depends on clearer principles, than that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void.” ~ Alexander Hamilton, Federalist #78, 1788

4. The Constitution created a Constitutional Republic; a government limited and defined by specific enumeration of authority where laws are made by equal representation of the people. If it is not enumerated, it is not Constitutionally authorized. We are not a democracy and our government and it’s laws are not dictated by majority mob rule.

“I sir have always conceived—I believe those who proposed the Constitution conceived—it is still more fully known and more material to observe, that those who ratified the Constitution conceived—that this not an indefinite government…but a limited government tied down to the specific powers.” ~ James Madison, to the House of Representatives, 1792

This is merely a short list of the many truths we neglect to teach and learn about our Constitution.  The miseducation perpetrated upon the American people is not by accident.  It is a coordinated effort to expand the power of those in office and extinguish the inherent liberties of the people.  Our founders warned us of this danger:

“No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.” ~ Samuel Adams to James Warren, 1775

America has the greatest history in the world of Liberty and inherent rights for ALL.  None other compares.  We have the greatest Constitution in the world.
