Comment: Reading

(See in situ)


Have you read Patrick Henry?

or the words of William Manning? Page 229:
"made like A Fiddle, with but few Strings,"
"play any tune upon it they pleased."
In Context:
"Regarding the Constitutional Convention, he [William Manning] echoed a common Anti-Federalist complaint: the framers deliberately employed ambiguous language to facilitate their aristocratic designs. He confidently asserted, "The Convention who made it intended to destroy our free government by, or they neaver would have spent 4 Months in making such an inexpliset thing." The Constitution was a "made like A Fiddle, with but few Strings," so that those in power might "play any tune upon it they pleased." The ambiguity of the Constitution was a deliberate product of Federalist aristocratic machinations-confirmed by the practices of Federalists since ratification. Under the guise of constructive interpretations, Federalists were seeking to extend the powers of their federal government and trample on the people's liberties."

I am concerned over the intent of the Constitution because it was pushed by Hamilton who had a goal to initiate a debt based national bank from which our problems stem today. We are slaves to the lenders. I am concerned that Christians are kept in homage to the Constitution which may not have been a covenant at all, but a fraud to enslave the people to the bankers. The Bible says the Love of Money is the Root of all Evil. I fear that our history has been one sided and it has been used to keep Christians in check to a nation state when those revolutionaries fought for a Democratic Federated Republic with a fully operating Trial by Jury which was lost with the Constitution per Patrick Henry. The words I have just written would have been close to blasphemy for me to say last year.

I have just ordered and am getting ready to read 2 books by Dr. Paul:
“The Revolution: A Manifesto” and “Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom” and I hope they will balance me out in case I am thinking incorrectly. I’ll add the "The Covenant" by Timothy Ballard to my reading list
