When someone hands me the piece to the puzzle that I am missing it most definitely inspires a "Thank You" within me! It really was the first thing that welled up in my mind when I read your reply!
However, the reply before that the Thank You was intentional. Not so much automatic, but more of a way to let you know that I am appreciative of your time on my behalf. I was asking you for help, me a stranger, which would cost you your time and effort, and a Thank You was all I had to give in return, so I gave it.
That is probably more than you wanted to know this morning.
I have received alot of help from ID Josf this year. It seems the Constitution may have been a ploy for centralized government. Me being patriotic and all, it was hard to swallow. i.e., the Declaration of Independence was a Liberating document and the Constitution was a Constraining document. One of the first readings Josf offered me was Patrick Henry. It seems that great patriot was alarmed. http://www.wfu.edu/~zulick/340/henry.html And that Hamilton was pushing it as well as working towards a central bank.
The deception runs deep?
Yes, beautiful words in that Declaration, and beautiful words here as well: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that who so ever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
The world...all men...who are created equal...not just some of certain degree.
That came to mind after I had already replied, so I have included it for you this morning.
I have a purist question for you: It seems that some of the contention here in this post towards Rand’s amendment is that it is targeted federally while Ron’s Sanctity of Life Act was targeted towards State’s rights.
Do you know anything about the difference between the 2, if there really is a difference. If not I am not asking you to find out. I am just asking if you know and if you do know, can you tell me what you think. Thanks (natural response lol)!
I am going to quote some info here for your food for thought about it incase you should want to explore.
“From Section 1 of the 14th Amendment:
“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
By following the powers offered to Congress in the Constitution, passage of the Life at Conception Act would reverse Roe v. Wade without the need for a constitutional amendment.
In a statement today, Sen. Paul shared his thoughts on today’s March for Life and on co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
“The right to life is prescribed to all Americans in the Declaration of Independence. Ensuring this is upheld is the Constitutional duty of all Members of Congress. I am doing my part by joining my fellow pro-life colleagues in sponsoring the Life at Conception Act, which will protect the sanctity of human life.
Protecting Americans – whether it’s balancing the budget or ensuring no child will be denied the right to life – is my priority now – as it has always been. As a medical student, I was one of a small group of students who opted out of learning abortion procedures. My regard for the sanctity of life has carried me throughout my career as a physician and I am proud to join my new colleagues to continue this fight for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, born and unborn.”
(However I might note here the 14th amendment specifically says “BORN” so I am not sure how Rand’s bill falls under the 14th amendment’s words: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_amend...
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
Ron Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/112/hr1096/text declares life at conception however his Act specifically talks about the states:
“(2) the Congress recognizes that each State has the authority to protect lives of unborn children residing in the jurisdiction of that State.”
OK Big Boy, you must tell me if this is too much information to be shoving at you and I will cease and desist! I have a tendency to get carried away with my lengthy words and documentation thereof.
