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,...
I recently read a comment on a blog for Constitutionalist, men who are prepared to fight against their own government, but felt the line has not yet been crossed, but close. On principle, I differ with the individual for the line has been crossed. Our government defends the murder of over 50,000,000 babies, killed seventy-six people exercising their constitutional rights by bearing arms and practicing their brand of religion (Waco), by subverting the constitution, by the irresponsible bankruptcy of America, by passage of the Patriot Act, by sabotaging of our state and local educational systems. But then I am certain the LINE would not have been crossed so long as we constantly keep moving it.
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?
