The Consititution, Government & Trolls

Rate this Entry
There are so many opinions on the world stage that it is hard to decipher truth from propaganda. But there are types of propaganda that are hard to tell from the truth. We see the outright lies and agenda promoting of the mainstream media and, for those that are "awake", it is a sickening experience to even have such running in the background while surfing the net for truth.

The more difficult propaganda to sift out as such is that which agrees mostly with our point of view. Take the NDAA and it's controversial indefinite detention amendments. We agree that laws that strip American citizens of their rights are wrong. But to state that "the NDAA strips American Citizens of their Constitutional rights" is incorrect.

Congress does not have the authority to make laws that strip our rights. How are things passed by government any more binding than the authority to do so? I can say that I give myself the right to do some thing, but if I do not have the authority to do so, how is it binding upon others?

The government of the United States of America is bound by the Constitution of the United States of America. The following are just 2 of our "Bill of Rights" amendments to the constitution:

"Amendment 1: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

"Amendment 4: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Now I ask you, is our government bound by these? Yes, it is, otherwise the subversive actors within it do not have even the authority that our government is given, but are criminals.

Yes, our government has a bigger gun and there are people within and without that could attempt a coup to subvert our form of government, which seems to be what is being attempted. A bigger gun pointed at "We the People" does not imply legality but excessive and illegal force.

So, when we hear scare tactics like "they have just stripped the citizens of their rights", it is a subtle twisting of the truth to instill more fear. The truth, as I see it, would be more like "they are attempting to convince you that they have authority that they do not have" or "they want us to believe they are not bound by the constitution even though any authority they do have is only given by that same constitution".

There are only two ways to "strip the citizens of their rights". Modify the Constitution of the United States as provided for in the Constitution, or, overthrow the United States of America and subdue "We the People" to an alternate form of government. Is the latter being attempted?
