What If the Government Rejects the Constitution?

In January I wrote to my congressman the following message: Letter to Congressman Joe Heck 1-20-2012 With all the underhanded and unconstitutional things this president is pulling, how come nothing is being done about it? Sure, I get letters from you and others saying that I am right and the president shouldn't be doing this or that but nobody is doing anything about it! It seems to me that the oath of office "to defend and uphold the constitution" is sacred. Since he has ignored and bypassed that document every chance he's gotten wouldn't that be perjury? I think it's treason! Is the president above the law? Why hasn't congress started impeachment proceedings against him? He is destroying this country and nothing is done about it!!

And that, my dear congressman, is why the public attitude is that we vote out everybody in congress. Nobody believes there is anyone with guts enough to stand up against him. How can you possibly believe that we can spend our way out of this mess with money we don't have? The majority of Americans do not want "Obamacare". We need oil independence. (i.e. The Keystone pipeline and Alaska). We need less regulation on companies and lower taxes on them so they will start hiring again. We need to bring our companies back from overseas. We need people in congress TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!

I told mine at a picnic last year that we had a communist in the WH and he took 2 steps back..I laughed and assured him that I was not wearing a wire and didn't want a response, just that he remember what I said and act accordingly. They listen to the "leadership", not too many will go off the reservation and stand up like men.
That's why I say the ladies like Palin and Bachmann have more balls than the men, they are the real patriots today.

WOW yr kidding yrself if you think Palin or Bachmann are any pillar of honesty. Both of them are proven phonies. Ron Paul is the ONLY confirmed honest man in Washington but he can't do it alone.

Re: "I, along with the vast majority of Americans, do not want to live under a dictatorship!!" Since when have the masters ever asked the slaves whether they wanted to be taken into bondage? If you wish to preserve your freedom, you must demand that it be recognized, and be prepared to fight to defend it. Otherwise, it will be lost.
What if the government never took the Constitution seriously? What if the same generation -- in some cases the same human beings -- that wrote in the First Amendment, "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech," also enacted the Alien and Sedition Acts, which made it a crime to criticize the government? What if the feds don't regard the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land?

What if the government regards the Constitution as merely a guideline to be referred to from time to time, or a myth to be foisted upon the voters,...
