The Constitution - RIP

Post by SamCogar on Sat Apr 25, 2015 7:07 am

During the Constitution’s ratification process, the “General Welfare” clause inane Article 1, Section 8 PREAMBLE, terrified state legislatures as they feared it WOULD be used by the Federal government to impose any kind tyrannous law they felt was for the “general welfare”.

The state legislators were always assured that the “general welfare” clause would NEVER be misinterpreted in that manner because just after this PREAMBLE, the specific 16 tasks that constituted “general welfare” were specifically enumerated…

Of course the state legislatures were all lied to and federal statists soon used the “general welfare” clause to shred the enumerated powers and pretty much do whatever they wanted.

The “interstate commerce clause” was perhaps the most abused innumerate power, especially after the 1942 Wickard v. Filburn SCOTUS ruling…

Thomas Jefferson defined the Constitution as a CAGE designed to confine the state leviathan from imposing tyranny. The door of that cage has long since been kicked in and explains why the U.S. federal government now wastes $4 TRILLION/yr, has $18 TRILLION in national debt, has about $100 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities and why none of our Bill of Rights are being protected.

The Constitution is now just a meaningless relic that only exists in some hermetically sealed case in the Library of Congress.
