An Excellent Comment by Cal.
By voting for either Democrat or Republican you are voting for the destruction of the USA and the American people. There is NO difference. They continue on with the polices of the previous administration and add to them more unconstitutional policies. They are both destroying our legitimate government, willingly and treasonously.
You are supposed to vote your conscience, for the person who would uphold the US Constitution, not follow and vote the party line.
All three branches were given constitutional means to stop another branch. The states have the means to stop the federal government which was created to deal with specific things, mostly of a foreign nature and to see that the *states traded equally with each other.
Federalist Number 57, James Madison wrote that Congress “can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society.”
*James Madison, letter to Virginia senator, Joseph Cabell declaring that the interstate and foreign commerce clauses were not intended, nor construed, to vest in Congress equivalent powers when regulating domestic and foreign commerce: “I always foresaw difficulties might be started in relation to the interstate commerce power. Being in the same terms with the power over foreign commerce, the same extent, if taken literally, would belong to it. Yet it is very certain it grew out of the abuse of the power of the importing states in taxing the non-importing, and was intended as a negative and preventative provision against injustice amongst the states themselves, rather than as a power to be used for the positive purposes of the General Government, in which alone, however, the remedial power could be lodged. And it will be safer to leave the power with this key to it, than to extend it all the qualities and incidental means belonging to the power over foreign commerce.”
Madison – the states would serve as the check: “Should an unwarrantable measure of the federal government be unpopular in particular State…the means of opposition to it are powerful and at hand. The disquietude of the people; their repugnance and, perhaps refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union, the frowns of the executive magistracy of the State; the embarrassment created by legislative devices, which would often be added on such occasions, would oppose, in any State, very serious impediments; and were the sentiments of several adjoining States happen to be in Union, would present obstructions which the federal government would hardly be willing to encounter.”
Madison, the “Father of the Constitution” (caps are mine): “The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, THAT THERE CAN BE NO TRIBUNAL ABOVE THEIR (the states) AUTHORITY, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.”
The opinion in Mack and Printz v. United States stated, “The Framers rejected the concept of a central government that would act upon and through the States, and instead designed a system in which the State and Federal Governments would exercise concurrent authority over the people.”
Thomas Jefferson: “that a federal “law” that violates the Constitution is no law at all. It is “void and of no effect.”
Black’s Law Dictionary, first edition, defines de facto: In fact, in deed, actually. This phrase is used to characterize an officer, a government, a past action, or a state of affairs which exists actually and must be accepted for all practical purposes, but which is illegal or illegitimate.
“Some provision should be made for defending the community against the incapacity, negligence, or perfidy of the chief magistrate. He might pervert his administration into a scheme of peculation or oppression. He might betray his trust to foreign powers.” James Madison
Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers 65: “A president should be impeached for “offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to society itself.”
Thomas Jefferson: “The government created by this compact (the Constitution) was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party (the people of each state) has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.”
It is not the US Constitution that is at fault here. It is the people who were charged through their lawfully required oath to “support and defend the US Constitution from ALL enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC” and did NOT carry out their duty.
They are still not carrying out their duty. Where are the charges, the prosecutions, against Obama and those of his administration that have ALREADY been indicted as War Criminals? Where are the charges of treason which are well documented and witnessed? What about murder in the first degree, no one was ever given “assassination powers here in the USA? What about the other various criminal and civil crimes that have been committed?
