    But since when (and here is my sincere question) does it matter that something violates the Constitution??

    That happens as a matter of routine business in Wash DC, and nobody has any power to stop the trampling of the Constitution.

Actually, I dont know of any unconstitutional laws, or actions. There are SEVERAL that appear to be unconstitutional, but when they are dissected, you see that they apply to specific people who are subject to their jurisdiction....dont forget:

    Article IV, Section 3
    New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

    The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.

    This means that Congress, constitutionally can make rules and regulations for all Federal Personnel!! Well, when you see the definition of "Federal Personnel" it starts to make sense:
    USC Title 5, 552

      (13) the term “Federal personnel” means officers and employees of the Government of the United States, members of the uniformed services (including members of the Reserve Components), individuals entitled to receive immediate or deferred retirement benefits under any retirement program of the Government of the United States (including survivor benefits).

    Here you see that anyone with a social security number is "federal personnel", and Congress is allowed to make all regulation for federal personnel, or anyone living in the District of Columbia...see how Congress defines "State"

    see page 166 State means the District of Columbia...todays codes mean the same thing, but now they are trickier, they simply put "State includes the District of Columbia", in hopes that Americans will assume that includes means also, and often Americans do!!

    (10) State
    The term “State” shall be construed to include the District of Columbia, where such construction is necessary to carry out provisions of this title.

    As far as wars, they are not declared, because America isnt at war, "the UNITED STATES" is, the UNITED STATES, is a Corporation:

    (15) “United States” means—
    (A) a Federal corporation;

    I think this is why they wear the flag backwards on their sleeves is to differentiate between America and the UNITED STATES...the military of course has a different excuse, but my idea makes more sense!!

    Its all a scam, but not an unconstitutional scam, this is why it is SO IMPORTANT to know all of these laws and actions, that most Americans consider "kookery" or "conspiracy theories"
