Do you know about the history of the Constitution, the bankruptcy of our country, specifically the 1st bankruptcy, and the creation of the Federal Reserve and how it was funded?
Our slow, now moving train momentum rage is long time coming. Turning the other cheek is not an option.
1 Peter 2:13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 15For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. 16Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. 17Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.
Mark 26:17 And Jesus said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were amazed at Him.

As a believer in Christ, and based on my understanding of the Bible, I believe the most responsible political ideology is Libertarian Anti-Federalism. Socialism can go straight to hell.
A small government which is accountable to the citizenry, which does not inhibit personal rights, freedoms and ideologies is necessary for the preservation of prosperity and freedom in this nation.
We have reached the point where elections will not change the system. Protest is ignored, and rioting only feeds the tyrrany. So how can we level the playing field?
Through the courts!!!!
Here are some changes that I propse:
1) Court costs must be flat percentage rate on based on the income of the accused party, if the accused party if found guilty. If the accused is found guilty, then court costs should fall on the accusing party. Furthermore, they should only be charged for the number of hours spent in court.
2) Courts should be force to offer a basic legal education (free of charge) on Constitutional Law and on laws relevant to the case in question, so that any citizen can represent themselves with confidence if desired.
3) These proposed changes should be added to the Bill of Rights and applied to local, state, and federal court systems.
These three changes alone, coupled with the potential power of Judicial Review would make it much easier to defend our rights in local, state, and federal courts, providing traction for the citizens who pay taxes and fail to receive adequate representation.
Please, share your ideas.
