    The Constitution

    by Charles Burris

    The Constitution of the United States, as adopted and intended by the Framers at Philadelphia in 1787, (and later ratified in the various state conventions), created a decentralized limited federal republic of free and sovereign independent states with specific enumerated powers delegated to the general government, with all other powers retained by the states and the people.

    But later a Mr. Lysander Spooner would disagree: No Treason No 1; No Treason No. 2; and No Treason No 6.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    After you've read "No Treason" above, I suggest this article. Spooner's contention that the Constitution is not valid is a strong one, and I agree with it, but the matter still goes deeper. Did the Constitution actually create a new form of tyranny, worse than existed before?

    "For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy ... Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed." - J.F.K.
