Perhaps the most important win for the Constitution we witnessed, was the peaceful transfer of power. After 45 times, we take this critical freedom for granted. This is unfortunate. This was very unique at the time the founders dreamed of this concept. The founders lived in a world where the idea of peaceful transfer existed only when power transferred from monarch to monarch within the same family. The framers said the transfer of power in the United States would not be based on birth or force, but would be the result of the people’s choice. We witnessed the results of the founder’s vision being carried out once again just as they had dreamed it would.
Another victory, or should we say a promise that we will count because we have not heard if for years, is that the people will once again regain their sovereign position. Our nation was founded on this concept. It was Benjamin Franklin who said that, “In a free society, those in government are the servants and the people are the superiors and sovereign.” The Declaration of Independence told us that government is instituted among man but receives its just power from the consent of the governed. We have witnessed the shift of sovereignty from the people to government for many years. Trump said on the steps of the capital, and in front of those in government who wish to be sovereign, that their desires and the results of their efforts will be reversed.
We people must understand that our return to sovereignty and government once again becoming the servant will only take place if we take our rightful place as the sovereign. That means that we the people must become informed about our kingdom, how it functions, its issues, and we must become continually involved, not just at election time. We the people must regard sovereign as a verb and not a noun or nothing will change.
Our government was intentionally established as a divided government. Power was not consolidated, it was diffused. This was done to protect our freedom. For many years, and especially the last eight, the executive branch has usurped the primary duty of the legislative branch which is passing or rejecting proposed bills that would become law. Our most current ex-president openly and often repudiated this distinction. He told us he had a pen and a phone and would act accordingly. He told us he must act when congress did not do what he wanted them to do. This is the constitutional right of the congress, to act by passing or rejecting. The Constitution does not give the executive to act in case congress does not. Trump has assured us he will reverse this usurpation of power by the executive. If Trump will follow through on this promise, that will be another victory for the Constitution.
We also witnessed the fulfillment of the promise of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. We saw the exercise of free speech and assembly supporting the new administration. Just as importantly, on Saturday, we saw the exercise of free speech and assembly voicing opposition to the administration. Both exercises are critical in a free society. Our founders realized that it is only in a free country where the right to support and oppose must be encouraged and protected. Only in a despotic dictatorship is opposition forcibly suppressed and ridiculed and minimized by those in power. This does not mean that we must agree with the opposition, but it does mean we must protect the right of all to disagree and openly display that disagreement.
The Constitution had a great week-end. As I said, the Constitution did not have a shut-out. The typical anarchists and Marxists displayed their ignorance of how both freedom and the United States Constitution work. Once again, we had thugs and criminals in the streets destroying property, creating mayhem, and using profanity and vulgarity to express their views. This type of opposition is not conducive to freedom nor is it protected by the Constitution. This represents all that freedom is not.
We have come to learn that these lawless riots are not spontaneous. Such lawless actions have been encouraged by many who have held power at the highest levels of our government. Most recently those encouragers have included the Obama’s, Holder, Lynch, Jarrett, and so many Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). These encouragers have not denounced these lawless actions but have made excuses for and attempted to give credibility to them. This is to be expected since it is the goal of both the encouragers and the lawless to tear down our current society so their perceived socially just society can be built.
Those members of the House of Representatives who refused to participate in a very sacred ceremony that is the very essence of freedom, are to be counted in this group of encouragers and denouncers of freedom and the Constitution. These Representatives stated that the will of the people is to be suppressed to their goals and desires. These Representatives have stated by their actions that the spirit and the words of the Constitution have no meaning or credibility to them.
Nevertheless, these encouragers, anarchists, and Marxists, suffered a huge defeat this week-end. The United States Constitution and our quest to remain a free people and nation scored a huge victory. All lawful and Constitution abiding citizens, those in support and those opposed to the new administration, should congratulate themselves and those with whom they disagree. Then these laws abiding and Constitution abiding citizens must face reality and realize that freedom and the Constitution only won the battle; the war continues. The encouragers, anarchists, and Marxists, will regroup and they will live to fight again. They have been told by Marx they must. It is their intention to fundamentally transform the United States from a free people and a free nation to a Marxist tyrannical state so they can form their “fair and just classless society.”
