Justice John Marshall Quote

“Let the end be legitimate, let it be within the scope of the constitution, and all means which are appropriate, which are plainly adapted to that end, which are not prohibited, but consist with the letter and spirit of the constitution, are constitutional. ... [S]hould Congress, under the pretext of executing its powers, pass laws for the accomplishment of objects not entrusted to the government, such [acts are] not the law of the land.”

~ Justice John Marshall

McCulloch v. Maryland, 17 U.S. (4 Wheat.) 316, 421-423 (1819)

Justice Marshall did not live to see the United States Inc. come to be in 1871. The act of which rendered the Constitution null and void. Most Americans do not realize this. Restore the Republic and Abolish the Federal Reserve.

Yup. Marshall (and all of the founding fathers) knew what the country COULD become if we forgot the constitution. Well, we have, haven't we? Dr. Paul reminds us, but few listen....certainly not the elite, who really govern us. Toilet... here we come.

ABSOLUTELY ! ! ! We hold this truth to be self evident. Where in Article 1 section 8 is it that specifically describes the implementation of the anti / un-natural alphabet soup(s) / occupying statist theocracy, that is / are infesting this land ? OOOPs each and every, any and all are living under the tyranny of a lawless / unconstitutional statist theocracy (whether they like it or not) ! ! !

The facade is cracking.  Duping Americans is getting harder, and the authoritarians are pulling out the stops to transform the American republic into a totalitarian State.  The cracks started in the Bush years, and have now devolved into a straight-up coup of the inalienable rights of the People.  The Trump card has exposed the rigged game and the roaches are scattering in the light.  We must keep this up!
