For as long as I can remember, I have used the term “obey the Constitution” in many of my writings, and as the basis of many arguments. But today; after watching John Kerry and his war pigs waving around fear flags and dead babies before Congress in order to garner support for an attack upon Syria. I thought to myself; these fools are not “obeying the Constitution”. Then I suddenly came to realize that the assertion was incorrect. For in reality, one doesn’t obey the Constitution, because the Constitution is not a set of dos and do nots for the people, to obey or to disobey. The Constitution is a document that creates a social, political, economic and religious environment where all may live long and prosper. We don’t obey it, we “uphold it” as the instrument of our freedom and prosperity. This is what their guilty of. Not upholding the instrument of our liberty and prosperity. This is an breach of their oath. This is treason and grounds for dismissal and/or imprisonment.
The greatest thing the Constitution does, which makes it unique among the nations, is that it sets and insures the power and the will of the people, over the power and will of the government. This is the critical point that led to my new and better understanding of our relationship to the Constitution. For to serve and uphold the will of the people, from whom the governing/servant class and it’s power is derived, is to uphold and promote the conditions and the benefits the Constitution provides. To my understanding the will of the people are against war in general, and have become very vocal in their opposition to an attack upon Syria. It’s not as simple as “We the People” being against an attack on Syria. It’s about all these extended years of war making that have depleted our resources, brought sorrow to happy homes, and took away the the freedom and prosperity the Constitution created the environment for.
If these politicians were truly attuned to the heart of the people, they would know this. But nay, I watched as Kerry and his cronies spewed their venom and their vile, and I beheld as some of the heads around the room nodded wisely, then proceeded to open their mouths stupidly, speaking in support for war. Know they not, that they have been hired to represent the will of their constituents?
