     Never have I seen so many people in Congress who give an Oath to uphold the US Constitution and their votes violate their sacred honor to do so. I think we have about 10 congress members who believe the Constitution is even okay to uphold if their voting records are an indication. Please look up the score card which grades on adherence to the Constitution ONLY to get a picture of whomever you have voted for in the House of Representatives and the Senate. This is the only one I have found so far and its in the "Freedom Index New American". They give reasons for each...tho you may have to search for that.

         An excellent reference to "the laws of nature and of nature's God" (Declaration of Independence) The de jure States united's authoritative, uniquely legitimate and sole jurisprudence is a system of law at nature that is absolute (science, math, life, liberty, rights, property, etc.). At / under nature's law, man can not create law — man can only implement procedures of order through tools such as codes, ordinances, regulations, rules, statutes, etc. Can man create gravity, life, etc. out of nothing — NO! ! !  Further, man can not legislate morality. Man can only create tyranny.

         The originating Greek philosophy (messaged through to today) is an ideology based on an ever elusive ideology that, law is based on man's morals (government actions only - man can legislate morality).

         Another legal philosophy (Legal Positivism) is an arbitrary system where demonic man is capable of creating and enforcing law. “An arbitrary law is one made by the legislator simply because he wills it, and is not founded in the nature of things;” (Bouvier’s Law Dictionary) – Legal Positivism, as an applied ideology, is most often “used in opposition to natural law” (Bouvier’s Law Dictionary)

         A blending of several legal philosophies today (contrary to constitutional law) deny individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty, the laws of nature, etc. while promoting demonic enslavement, pain, death, violence, poverty, etc.
