Wouldn’t it be nice if the people in the government were required to obey all the
same rules that they impose on the rest of us? They would have to abide by the truth-in-advertising
regulations and fraud laws. They could be sued for failing to keep their promises.
They could be put in jail for violating the Constitution.
And, wouldn’t it be nice if all citizens could have the same privileges under the
law that the government officials have? We could have the same health insurance
choices. We could be immune from frivolous lawsuits.
Some amendments have been proposed to require legislators to be subject to the same
laws that they impose on the rest of us and to give to us the same privileges that
they enjoy. Unfortunately, there are some necessary privileges of government officials
that cannot be conferred on the rest of us, such as the necessity of legislators
to set legislators’ salaries, and there are limitations applied to government officials,
such as the need to be re-elected periodically in order to stay in office, that cannot
be applied to all citizens. And for those rules that we would like to equalize,
why stop at the legislators? Why not require ALL government officials to obey the
same rules that the rest of us have to obey?
It’s time to arrest the lawbreakers in government. The Constitution, a product of
thousands of years of wisdom, is being trashed by a generation of lunatics, and only
a minority of citizens are determined enough to save it. The government itself, a
collection of egotistical elitist gangsters, will not willingly impeach the congressmen,
the president, and the judges within its ranks who have wilfully violated their oaths
of office. The government employees, who have grown to be a huge parasitic sector,
will not bite the hand that feeds them. The welfare dependents and crony capitalists,
whose loyalty is purchased with taxpayer dollars and undeserved favoritism, will
not cut off their plunder. And half of the remaining citizens don’t have the foggiest
idea of what is going on. That leaves just a minority of us, the most aware victims
of government lawlessness, to enforce the Supreme Law of the Land.
In the hierarchy of laws we have state and local laws, we have federal laws, and
we have constitutional law. Just as a federal crime is more serious than a state
or local crime, a constitutional crime is more serious than a federal crime. But,
who enforces constitutional law? What do you do when the entire federal government
has become a mafia? What do you do when the Supreme Court, made up of justices appointed
by lawbreaking presidents, rubber stamps practically every distortion of the Constitution
to the point of allowing countless outright violations? What do you do when a Rep.
Pete Stark says, “The federal government can, yes, do most anything in this country,”
and when congressional leader Nancy Pelosi scoffs at a question about the constitutionality
of federally mandated health care with, “Are you serious? Are you serious?” What
do you do when the various state governments have given their power to the federal
government and are now too much under the financial thumb of the latter to risk upholding
the Constitution? Who enforces the all-important constitutional law?
Answer: There is only one body left to enforce it–you and I–the victims.
The only question is how to do it. The answer is that we have to force the adoption
of an amendment to the Constitution that will change the rules instantly to the advantage
of everyone but the crooks. This amendment has to have teeth, meaning that it must
provide a means by which the government can be altogether prevented from disobeying
the Constitution. Is such an amendment possible? Yes! And it is called the Equalizer
