We who consider ourselves Freedom Loving and Constitutional Americans proclaim our confidence in the Constitution of the United States to keep our freedoms intact, and not the men and women in government. The constitution was a novel concept in the history of mankind. The novelty was that our founders said we would not be ruled by the arbitrary dictates of men, but by the rule of law as outlined in the Constitution. The intent was that no person, regardless of rank or position, would be above the law.
James Madison, in Federalist No. 57, scoffed at the idea that members of Congress would exempt themselves from laws that applied to other people. They “can make no law,” he wrote, “which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society.”
This principle, Madison declared, creates between the legislature and the people “that communion of interests and sympathy of sentiments, of which few governments have furnished examples; but without which every government degenerates into tyranny.”
Congress and the administration follow this practice consistently. Our freedoms are constantly being eroded. An article with examples will be posted on the website under articles by the author within a few days. Please check for it.
