Over the past 100 years, conservatives and Progressives have battled over the meaning and relevance of the U.S. Constitution. Many of these disagreements have focused especially on the relationship between the federal government and the states. Lost is the basic principles which Our Nation was built on. Starting from the Top to the Bottom. Where did we lose our social ethics towards one another? To win at any cost has hurt the moral fibers of this great Nation over the past few decades.
Meanwhile, Some call for a return to the federalism of the Constitution, but they are not always clear about what exactly this means, offering different prescriptions about the kind of federalism that America’s leaders should embrace. Others even go so far as to try to resurrect the discredited doctrine of state nullification of federal laws. Progressives have bitterness towards conservatives. While Conservatives feel if though Progressives are wishy-washy lacking a backbone with all the indecisiveness. Each displaying hatred towards the other side. Often leading to irreconcilably disagreement towards each other. This leads to a paucity when it comes to governing “We The People”
Although America has made great strides over the last 200 years. Our Country has become a Big Divide in recent past. Our foundation set forth by Our Founding Fathers seem to be none existent. So, let us take a look at some basic principles, shall we?
1. Under the Constitution, No Branch or Agency of the Government should be allowed to operate in violation of the expressed will of the People.
Our Founding Fathers said, “By God’s own allowance”
2. All Humans are Equal:
- A) All before God
- B) Equal in their Rights
- C) Equal before the Law in which we are governed.
So begin Jefferson’s famous words from the body of The Declaration of Independence of 1776. “We Hold these truths self-evident that All Men are Created Equal”
3. Alienable Rights in the Declaration Of Independence:
- A) The Right To Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
- B) The Right to Freedom of Speech
- C) The Right to Assemble, and To petition the government for a redress of grievances.
These are truly Powerful writings of the Founding Fathers but nowadays they don’t have to mean much to those who represent “We The People” Nor will they ever have the impact on Our Nation if “We The People” continue to elect those who have their who personal agenda oppose to the concerns of their constituents. Whether your Republican or Democrat; Progressive or Conservative. If a candidate does not have his or her people best interest at heart for your the Community, State, or Country… This is what Our Founding Fathers had when they got together to form The Constitution. It’s not Rocket Science, it must take a collective effort for us all to hold those accountable who have frayed from what this Country was built on… Let us get back to the basics and in return, begin what we started decades ago.
