We’re close but you’re not quite there yet.
I understand, however… Show me where the Constitution grants the government the power to deny any “FREE”
man’s rights. The key word being FREE
. After all, some crimes are punishable by death. However, the Gummyment has not been granted the power to punishing free men.
The Amendments to the Constitution were written to PROTECT FREE MEN
. The Constitution and particularly the Amendments are precisely to restrict the gummeyment. They don’t grant freedoms they ACKNOWLEDGE
them and forbid gummyment intrusion on them.
The ACLU and other socialists have dumbed people down so much they actually think there is such a thing as separation of church and state. They press the gummeyment into making laws restricting religious activity on public property. And what is the first thing stated in the First Amendment? “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Again the MORONS
have interoperated that to mean the gummeyment CAN
make laws forbidding the expression of religion in and on public places.
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” Thomas Jefferson The atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference. They deserve a place of honor with all good men. [George Washington]
"Let us hear no more of confidence in man, but let us keep THEM [men in government] from mischief by binding them down by the chains of the Constitution." [Thomas Jefferson] [emphasis added]
"Congress shall make no law, shall not be infringed".
Sounds pretty much like they wanted at least those Amendments to be ABSOLUTE
if not all.
