Education is key
I’m nearing my 69th maturity level in this life—does that give me the right to share “nuggets of knowledge?” (Hosea 4:6, Isaiah 5:13). Especially with others tardy about doing their “stay free longer, intellectual homework?” Perhaps, please analyze carefully, above verses...God’s word!
There’s two worlds out there—the world of freedom vs. the world of regimentation. Which do you serve? If the first, you’ll realize the free market made America the greatest for over 200 years, under a limited government republic (flag salute). If the second, perhaps you can see why America is going downhill, too much big government trending into socialism, which fosters dependency instead of independency we celebrate each July 4th.
The first sentence, American Constitution reads: “All” legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a “Congress” of the United States.” (emphasis added). It said “all not some.” Are many things unconstitutional right now going on in the world scene? It also said “Congress” not other entities such as the UN or the Federal Reserve.
Remember presidential inaugural days over past decades? Do you recall the raising of their hand and taking an oath to protect and defend the American Constitution, not the UN charter?
Our Declaration of Independence, circa, July 4, 1776, has an ominous part reading: “He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.” He—referring to England’s King George. Any parallels to our modern era?
Would it be tremendous common sense to ask all harassing bureaucrats, “Are you sir, ma’am, aware of any “law” in black and white that gives you or your agency “legislative jurisdiction” over me?” (emphasis added). On a personal basis, my constitutional studies have yet to reveal where one has to have a permit or license to help one’s fellow man. Bureaucrats supposedly work for us, not us for them.
All you “knowledge rejectors” out there, please consider too much government and taxes as being “bad trends” towards degrading our great American republic (flag salute), which started as limited government, not big government. Expanding government is creeping socialism. It ultimately fails.
All things considered, working daily for less government, less taxes, more responsibility, and with God’s help, a better world just makes good common sense!
I delivered key, educational knowledge—you decide if it’s worthy.
