The problem is, they do.

Yes and no man is an island or a Constitutional scholar unto himself.

What is failed to be said here is that if you don't and they do you pay... for deciding what is and is no unconstitutional is not always so clear even to the courts, say nothing of the lay person.

J Carlton, Calgary

Start with refusing to give up your guns. (at least until they are hot and empty) because you will have no authority over your own life or property unless you can enforce it. The minute the populace is disarmed they are sheep for slaughter. Couldn't happen here? That's what they were saying in Germany in 38.

Well said. J Carlton.

The problem is the ones who decide what is constitutional and what is not.

In my dreams...The 28th Amendment - Congress shall make no laws for the people that do not also apply to Congress. Congrees shall make no law for Congress that does not also apply to the people.

In America, the sovereign power resides in and comes only from the People. "We the People" are the sovereigns. All the power and authority the government has ... was given to it by the People! If we don't have the right to do a thing, then we cannot delegate such a right to any government! ("We cannot give to anyone or anything any power or authority we do not have!") Is it not in controversion to this principle that representatives of the People -- legislators or bureaucrats or judges -- pretend they can make laws to implement powers We the People did not and cannot give them? It is self-evident! Yet they pretend they can do virtually anything they or even a majority of them merely agree among themselves (vote) to do; they publish interpretations of laws and promulgate rules based on those interpretations; or they render decisions that are clearly antithetical to the concepts set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution as the Founding Fathers understood and expounded them; and thereby they violate their sworn oath to defend and uphold the Constitution. They know that few if any who discover such usurpation will have the perseverance, let alone the financial means and time required to find a qualified, willing attorney to utilize the court system to expose their usurpation and bring them to account and thus rectify their malfunction. They also promote and rely on the general MISCONCEPTION that any statute passed by a legislature is valid. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail! This is succinctly stated as follows: "The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed ... "Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection and justifies no acts performed under it ... FROM: "Commercial liens a most potent weapon",search it and read it!

Samuel Adams, America

"Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience." - John Locke

Samuel Adams, America

"Who are the militia? are they not ourselves.... Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American.... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people." -Tench Coxe, PA delegate to the 1786 constitutional convention

Samuel Adams, America

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of "liberalism," they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform. " - Norman Thomas (1944).

I think that Congress better begin wearing KEVLAR if they insist on FUCKING WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,that's what.

Until the American people awaken, come together and educate themselves on the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and holding the government accountable. There will be no hope of stopping the government and the general media from dividing U.S. Getting involved and supporting those who truly believe that this country will not be whole until we get back to the rule of law, that being Constitution and the Bill of Rights. "Trust No One Who Supports Or Enforces Unconstitutional Law, For They Are Enemies Of A Free People". K.S. 1999

IRC, UCC, USCA, FRC -codes, statues...not law. Know the difference. Common Law is law.

All who have a vested interest in the future of our nation; be they Democrat, Republican, Liberal or Conservative... any shade of grey or black and white... Christian, Jew, Muslim... or any other religion... everyone should be up in arms over any mandate that seeks to infringe upon their rights. One may not wish to observe a right at any given time, yet should understand the importance of having that freedom of choice as they see fit.

I for one, will not cooperate with the Federal Government on any form of gun ban, infringement on the 1st amendment, allowing unwarranted searches and seizures or anything else. And I will seek truth in media... for example, CNN and MSNBC still insist that it was an AR 15 that was used in the recent shooting in Newtown Connecticut... that is ludicrous! It was a shotgun that was pulled from that vehicle trunk, but not only that, the weapon was never used!!!

People need to wake to the rising threat in our nation... we fund foreign terrorism, yet seek to disarm Americans. Face the facts, the Leftists don't know what they are talking about, and that is because they aren't talking about what it is they really want to push. They want you, the sheep, disarmed, so their plans can be instituted without opposition. They want you controlled, womb to tomb... Don't believe it? Read the health care act... they will mandate "End of Life" counseling. Really? What is this crap? You mean some liberal shit is going to sit there and tell me I have but a few years left and here we go...?

Not to mention the fact that you can not self terminate (SUICIDE IS A CRIME... OK? w/e), but if the govt. gets Sanctioned euthanasia passed... it would be ok, as is the case in some European Countries, if the govt. controls it. Of course, you pay a fee. Make sense to you? This country has bumped its head and lost its damn mind.

See you on the field.

kevin, longmont

when the shit goes down you better be ready!

Folks in all sincerity,
Your answers lie in learning common law like it was before the civil war. You have to take these people out of their costumes and sue them as men and women.
I know how.

Jed Freeman, atlanta

Your role in legal land is a dead person. Blacks law 1st edition look up person and you have been made a fiction in the law society.(civil)
There is no natural rights in legal land. Only civil rights.

clyde askins, weatherford

I think the constitution means just the way it is written no more no less and if you go by that it is not hard to under stand when politicians and judges try to twist it to mean what they want is when it gets hard to understand because they have done lost the meaning

Everyone is bound by moral law and the constitution is very incomplete in its design, the negligent and irresponsible resident majority of America are an example of its incredible incompleteness.
