We the people...
What a powerful statement. Children have been taught this phrase for generations. It seems the present system of education does not find these words important enough. It could be ventured that your child, of any age will not comprehend the profound principle.
Is there something that comes to your mind when you read those words. To some, it can be stimulating in the sense that these words are the main sustenance of our daily liberties. Go ahead, say it aloud. The words ring in the essence of liberty, itself.
The sovereign citizen gains the authority, by which the inherent liberties have derived. To the public servant they are just words. The elitist attitude toward the citizen shows the ignorance of the right of the people. We the people have consented to the representation of this public servant. Without this consent, they would be out of a job.
These representatives are oblivious to the authority of the citizen. How many times have you written your representative and received the impersonal template statement in response. Or even a vague response while on the phone. That is if you can even get past the aide. We have all heard the arrogance in our representatives voices while they are telling us that they know better than we do. I guess the elitist money and prestige is enough to allow for such actions. Wrong answer.
We the people even allowed for today's healthcare summit. To his chagrin, President Obama departed with no more than the mere fact that the country knows that he is President. That is a fact. It seems as though he was expecting more. Maybe a praise of, “...we're not worthy”, or something more in line with a title of perpetual rule.
Oh, to be sure. Other President's have been in their own power modes. The party affiliation, matter's not. The duopoly has become that of a party of one. It is profoundly difficult to dole the difference between the monikers. There are many words to describe the duopoly. Here are some examples:
left, right, liberal, conservative, blue dog, rhino, moderate, neocon, etc...
Irregardless of the description, the outcome remains the same. It is still the duopoly.
It is of no reason that any moniker should matter. The fact is, We the people...are the prevailing authority of government at all levels. The United States Constitution is the established commitment of We the people.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Lest we not forget the constitution of the Great State of Indiana. As you can see, I am partial to the Hoosier state. Okay, its my state and I love it. Now, let us return to the matter at hand. This constitution is unique in its own right. More to the point, it is written in the language of the citizen.
TO THE END, that justice be established, public order maintained,
and liberty perpetuated; WE, the People of the State of Indiana,
grateful to ALMIGHTY GOD for the free exercise of the right to
choose our own form of government, do ordain this Constitution.
Moreover, the state constitution allows for a broad perspective on the rights of the people. The following are excerpts from various points in the constitution.
Section 1. WE DECLARE, That all people are created equal; that they
are endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights; that
among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that all
power is inherent in the People; and that all free governments are,
and of right ought to be, founded on their authority, and instituted
for their peace, safety, and well-being. For the advancement of these
ends, the People have, at all times, an indefeasible right to alter
and reform their government.
Note in Section 1, the last sentence makes a profound statement: “...an indefeasible right to alter and reform their government. The word indefeasible is defined as that of not capable of being annulled, voided, or undone. Sounds clear and to the point. It might be wise for legislators to take heed of this statement. That is government at all levels.
Section 31. No law shall restrain any of the inhabitants of the State
from assembling together in a peaceable manner, to consult for their
common good; nor from instructing their representatives; nor from
applying to the General Assembly for redress of grievances.
Section 32. The people shall have a right to bear arms, for the
defense of themselves and the State.
The right to bear arms is cited as a distinct right of the people, rather than the vague statement mentioned in the United States Constitution. Although, the Right To Bear Arms clause in the U S Constitution is no less important. This right can only be seen as to that of the people, and not just a militia or government force.
We the people... the statement is loud and clear. Our voice will be heard. Reform is in the hand of the Sovereign Citizen. Let our representatives know that we will stand no more for the belligerence of the elitist agenda. Together we will stand in liberty.
“REFORM, REFORM, REFORM!”
