i thought the Constitution was ruling.
This is the mistake most young people make. The Constitution was written by We The People and then provided to the government in order to charter its
functional behavior and to limit the scope of its authority. The laws that come out of Congress are the "rules". Those rules are supposed to be made
in full compliance to the Constitution so that they do not surpass the authority Congress was granted by We The People.
what change must take place exactly.
There are a number of changes that must take place in order to reign the current growth of tyranny. I will enumerate a few that quickly come to
1 - People must educate themselves regarding how this government is supposed to work. They need to have an understanding of what the Constitution
really is and how the government was intended to work. In short, the People need to regain an understanding that they are the rightful power in this
2 - Through the above understanding, the People must reject the current crop of Congressmen and replace them with representatives who also understand
and yield to Constitutional rule. New representatives need to monitored to ensure that they actually represent the views of their constituents.
Republicans and Democrats alike are rapidly eroding freedom and need to be replaced.
3 - Communicate with your representatives constantly so that they do have an actual understanding of the will of The People. Most representatives
complain that nobody cares, and that nobody tells them what their lawmaking preferences entail.
4 - Put aside partisan politics, and always be mindful of what is good for the Nation. Make an effort to understand the issues "from both sides",
and know the historical lead up to the issues. Based upon knowledge and unselfish reasoning, you then call upon your representatives to make rulings
that properly solve the issues without impacting your freedom.
In short, The People need to become actively involved with their own governance, as originally intended. Apathy and non-participation on the part of
the citizens has given rise to self-serving lawmakers working to fix things that aren't broken. Tyranny has engaged simply because that is the drift
of unfettered government. Put the chains back onto the government where they belong. That is how the system was designed to work.
Don't make the mistake of exchanging freedoms for pretense of security.
When proper representation has been put in place, demand that the encroaching tyranny be reversed. It really is that simple, and no blood needs to be
spilled. The system is not broken, it is merely overlooked.
