The Constitution --- Plain and Simple
Conspiracy --- Part II
Curtis W. Caine, MD
This column on the Constitution appears in the Medical Sentinel to remind us that it is the unConstitutional (and thus illegal) activities in medicine and all other facets of our lives that have trampled on and outlawed our God-endowed freedom and liberty.
In Part I of this lesson (Medical Sentinel, July/August 1999), I enumerated the first 13 points of inference that can be drawn from our "U.S. Constitution 101" course. As we advance to the sophomore level 201 of the Constitution, we proceed hereby with the fourteenth point of inference.
14. For emphasis, restated, the States, via the Constitution, granted the central government no authority/power to place the United States in any international body or entangling alliances that exercise any authority over citizens of the U.S.A. or the States of the Union or any entity of or within the Union. "Membership" in NATO and the UN is prohibited. Those who put the U.S.A. therein (the President "make[ing]" and the Senators "Consent[ing]") violated their oath to obey the Constitution --- an impeachable offence in all instances, and treason in many.
15. The Census was directed to be taken every 10 years to determine: a) the distribution of the 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and b) the equal direct taxation on the head of each and every citizen. The census (to be taken again next year) is not to determine the number of toilets in each home.(1)
16. In addition to not being included in Article I, Section 8 as an authorized power of Congress, to make it unequivocal, unequal direct "Capitation" taxation on the monetary/financial worth of each person was specifically prohibited by the original Constitution in Article I, Section 9, paragraph 4. The 1913 Sixteenth Amendment changed each individual's worth from being equal by virtue of his personhood made in GOD's image to his unequal, capricious, obdurate, inhuman, pecuniary value to the almighty STATE.
17. Contrary to the current sooth-saying "The First Amendment says you can't legislate religion," ALL legislation ultimately deals with religion. What a person believes and subscribes to constitutes, indicates, and attests his religious world view and predetermines his words and deeds and vote. Additionally, what the First Amendment actually says is that the Congress cannot legislate "AN establishment of religion" --- i.e., the creation or sponsoring of a State Church.
18. History-wise George Washington concluded, "Govern-ment is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment, should it be left to irresponsible action."
Thus, the people were to remain informed and vigilant in preserving their liberties from the monopolistic tendencies of central governments to usurp power.
In The Federalist, No. 28, Alexander Hamilton thus explained:
Power being almost always the rival of power, the general government will at all times stand ready to check the usurpations of the state governments, and those will have the same disposition towards the general government. The people, by throwing themselves into either scale, will infallibly make it preponderate. If their rights are invaded by either, they can make use of the other as the instrument of redress...
It may safely be received as an axiom in our political system that the state governments will in all possible contingencies afford complete security against invasions of the public liberty by the national authority.(2)
19. So, the Founders seated the Representatives in the House in D.C. to watch out --- within the set framework of the Constitution --- for the people who sent them there, charged to make sure their constituent citizens are not disenfranchised, lose their sovereignty, and become subservient creatures to historically oppressive government tyranny.
20. And likewise, the Founders seated the Senators in the Senate in D.C. to watch out --- within the set framework of the Constitution --- for the State that sent each there, charged to make sure their State is not disenfranchised, does not lose its retained sovereignty in matters not delegated to the Fed, and become subservient to the central government creature which it had created.(3) This bedrock of the Republic was pulverized to quicksand by the Seventeenth Amendment which gelded the States.
21. Remember --- the citizens created the States, the States created the Union. Creatures are not above but are subservient to their creator.(4) The wisdom of this aphorism is contained in the Biblical admonition "Professing to be wise, they became fools...who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator...." (Romans 1:22-25)
22. The Constitution forbids entitlements in two places --- Article I, Section 9, paragraph 8 and Article I, Section 10, paragraph 1. All entitlements are illicit, forbidden by the Constitution. The question is not are entitlements nice? or helpful? or needed? or good? The question is are they authorized? They are not. Thus they are forbidden by the Law of the Land. Those who introduced the legislation for welfare programs, those who voted them in, those who administer them, and those who receive welfare are breaking the Law of the Land. A statute enacted by Congress that violates the Constitution by being outside delegated authority is a usurpation, and therefore, null and void. Such egregious violations taking place and going unpunished is tyranny --- the A) eradication and then B) prevention of the recurrence of which were the underlying reasons the U.S.A. was founded by the Declaration and formed by the Constitution.(5)
23. The Constitution 1) proscribes the central government being in health, education, welfare, "human services," ad infinitum, yet these constitute 80 percent of federal activities. Thus 2) a similar proportion of the Fed's resultant NSF spending, that requires long-term borrowing to cover the consequent deficit and debt, is also disallowed by the Constitution. Hold on, there is more! 3) The Constitution in Article I, at the outset of its enabling Section 8, in its very first paragraph, prohibits a standing debt. It orders the Congress "...to PAY the Debts...." There is to be no national debt! And thus no interest on no debt. Don't you see? Wrong begets more wrong --- it snowballs. Like pregnancy, there is no such thing as a small amount of wrong.
24. Much of the above illegal central usurpation is done by government fiat bureaucratic decrees of the government agencies (by issuing "regulations"), the courts (by rendering "decisions"), and the Executive (by signing "orders") without even illicit statutes by Congress.
25. Much of the collectivist international entanglement and domestic plunder is and must be done by subterfuge, because the plain, simple, direct, elementary language of the Constitution forbids even entertaining thoughts of subjugation of the(se) United States in the collective socialism of the "ecumenical" quagmire of the new world order. So, the Constitution has been and is "interpreted" by subversives to mean what it plainly, simply, and directly does not say, never has said, and didn't say when enunciated by its authors. That is, the so-called "interpretation" has "evolved," we are told, to upgrade to contemporary times from an old fashioned, outdated, antique, passé society; to modernize it for an industrial (and now an information computer) age. This is, of course, all hogwash, a cover for the hidden and undisclosed real reason of ulteriorly making an end run around the iron clad restrictions of the Constitution. The Declaration appropriately calls these restrictions "new Guards for their future security" in its paragraph 2.
