Definition of Insanity?
Americans grow weary of corrupt Washington politics. So much for “Hope and Change”, eh? When the people in charge of our Republic hold our time-proven Constitution in disdain, why should we expect a good outcome?
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg infamously advised Egyptians to disregard the U.S. Constitution as a model for government and pointed to South Africa as a preferred model.
“I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, have an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done.” — Justice Ginsburg speaking to Egyptians at the beginning of 2013
This is the definition of insanity: Doing the same things over and over, expecting different results.
What’s the Cure, Brother?
First, we recognize that Big Government steadily erodes the ultimate authority in this country: We the People.
“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” — Abraham Lincoln
Has our Constitution become a relic of history, something too ancient to be relevant this century? Fact is, our Constitutional Republic has outlasted all others for hundreds of years. How is this possible? How can our Constitution endure, if merely the product of the imaginations of the Founding Fathers?
“Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [the Fourth of July]?” “Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity”? — John Quincy Adams, July 4, 1869
“I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the Ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this.” — Benjamin Franklin, addressing colleagues when the constitutional convention came to impasse, July 28, 1787
When Federal Government Fails
The wisdom that inspired our Constitution came from the minds of our Founding Fathers who were inspired by the Holy Spirit of God. This is not my opinion. This is a well-documented fact of history.
Because of the Divine influence, our Constitution has within it mechanisms to deal with human failures, as are evident today. Supreme Court justices don’t believe in God, a communist sits in the seat of the presidency of this nation, lawmakers disregard its precepts.
There is built into the Constitution a mechanism for We the People to restore our Republic: Article V.
“…on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States…” Excerpt, Article V, U.S. Constitution
When federal government fails to uphold the Constitution, when it becomes ineffective and corrupt, We the People can amend the Constitution to bring it back on track.
