Rally at the Breach!!! A Note on the US Constitution

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

There's an interesting essay that the great American thinker Lysander Spooner once penned in 1867 entitled "No Treason." To very briefly summarize this document, Spooner points out that there is no treason committed by those who disagree with Constitution of the United States. Recently a friend brought this up to me for a rather heated debate – which might have something to do with the fact that my pen-name since I started writing is "the Champion of the Constitution."

This article is my attempt to recap this conversation and add some points I've had after some time for reflection. While I concede the point that there is no treason in disagreeing with the Constitution – although it's quite different if you happen to be a politician who swore to uphold it - it is my firm belief that in our day and age we must rally around the Constitution.

Please.

Don't try to whitewash Lysander Spooners words, with a venal interpretation. He made it clear on what he thought of the document.

There is no way in h@ll, that the constitution ever restrained the federal government from the people. How could it? It established absolute control of taxation and law making to a ruling class.

And, this put us under control how?

You can't blame the people for not understanding the deception. The indoctrination has been generational in scope. The people are taught in gov education, that this IS freedom.

If the people have never been allowed to see or know of freedom, how do they know this is not it?

They have had centuries to perfect the lie, to manipulate and gain power thru a forced system. Taxation is a force. It was one of the first things placed in the document.

They made sure they controlled all the law making too. They even closed the loop with the Supreme Court, they made sure we would be in bondage by the interpretations of a few people, only they would control. The Supreme Court gets to decide and interpret what rights the slaves have.

So really, the document is worthless because it is subject to final interpatation by a select few, and used only as a means to gain absolute power over the people.

There is absolutely no way to enforce it anyway, without eventual war.

okay so I get this right.

You think the constitution is not good? And that my whole life I've been raised to think this is freedom when in fact it's servitude?

that makes sense.. I just want to know that you don't like the Constitution..
