Our Constitution really was a 5000 Year Miracle.
The chart following this article illustrates the Miracle.
Rights come from God, and the purpose of civil governments is to secure the rights God gave us.
A “federal government” is an alliance of Sovereign States associated together in a “federation” with a national government to which is delegated supremacy over the States in specifically defined areas only.
These specifically defined areas are the “enumerated powers” WE delegated to the three branches of the national (“federal”) government.
The States and The People retained all other powers.
The chart (see below) depicts the elegant simplicity of our Constitution; lists the few and defined powers WE delegated to the national government for the Country at Large; shows how the powers WE delegated to the national government secure specific God given rights; and shows the retention of all other powers by the States and The People.
Our Constitution isn’t broken! Our Constitution isn’t outdated. The problem is that WE – who are “the natural guardians” of the Constitution - didn’t bother to learn it. Since we didn’t bother to learn it, we elected representatives who also hadn’t bothered to learn it. And so everyone ignores it.
And we abandoned the religious and moral foundation of our Constitution.
It is our own ignorance of our existing Constitution, and the collapse of religion and morality which have brought us to the brink of destruction.
Our Constitution doesn’t need “fixing”! The only Amendments we need are to repeal some of the previous Amendments we got deceived into approving.
WE THE PEOPLE need “fixing”. Restoration of our religious and moral foundation and our Constitution is the Answer to the Healing of our Land.
Let the Restoration begin with you. Share this Article. Print out the chart. Study it. Flesh it out with your own personal readings of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bible. Have study groups in your home. You can become a “guardian” of the Constitution.
Miracle of Our Constitution
To secure the Rights GOD gave us, WE The People ordained and established
The Constitution for the United States of America
Wherein WE Created the Federal Government:
An Alliance of Sovereign States associated together in a Federation for the
limited purposes enumerated in The Constitution.
Federal government of 3 branches
(legislative, executive, judicial):
1. Has lawful power only over these objects
(for the Country at large):
International trade & diplomacy
War national defense
Make Treaties, but only on objects authorized
Establish uniform commercial system:
o weights & measures
o patents & copyrights
o money system (gold & silver)
o bankruptcy laws
o mail delivery & road building
Laws on naturalization & immigration
Certain civil rights (in the Amendments)
Make & enforce only a few criminal laws
Federal courts for specific purposes only
Miscellaneous housekeeping: census, etc.
May borrow money & levy taxes, but only for
purposes authorized by Constitution!
2. God given Rights secured by federal govt:
Life (military, pirates, traitors, secure borders)
Property rights: honest money, weights &
measures, patents & copyrights, bankruptcy law
Limited & enumerated powers secure right to
be left alone!
Fair trials in federal courts (e.g., Dt 1:16-17;
Dt 19:15-20 & Mt18:16; Ex 18:13-26; dont
bear false witness) (5th - 8th Amendments)
The States and The People:
1. Retain all powers except those few delegated
exclusively to federal govt or prohibited to the States
(Art. I, ß 10):
Federalist Paper No. 45 (3rd para from end) by
James Madison, Father of our Constitution:
The powers delegated by the proposed
Constitution to the federal government are few
and defined. Those which are to remain in the
State governments are numerous and indefinite.
The former will be exercised principally on
external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and
foreign commerce the powers reserved to the
several States will extend to all the objects which
concern the lives, liberties, and properties of
the people, and the internal order and prosperity
of the State.
2. State govts secure rights God demands that govts
honor (e.g., fair trials) & protect us from those who
seek to deprive us of God-given rights in Bible. E.g.,
Our Right to Life (prosecute murderers, ban
abortion, euthanasia, drunk driving; quarantines
for dangerous diseases, etc.)
Sanctity of our persons (prosecute rapists,
muggers, kidnappers, child molesters)
Our property rights (prosecute robbers; punish
negligence, fraud, & breach of contract; courts
available for dispute resolution.)
The federal govt. & State govts. have different spheres of operation. The federal govt. is supreme only in those
few & enumerated objects delegated exclusively to it. The States and The People retain supremacy in all other
matters. When the federal govt. usurps powers retained by the States or The People, it becomes unlawful &
illegitimate: Nullification is proper. Send comments to publiushuldah.wordpress.com (revised, June 2013)
