"We The People"

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

A main feature of our constitutional republic is that “We The People” are neither “subjects” nor passive. We both pray for and hold our elected leaders accountable. We don’t have “rulers” for whom we can ONLY pray, as with the Roman Empire in the Apostle Paul’s day. When elected leaders act like rulers, they must be reminded that the United States of America was founded and designed to reject despotism.

We don’t allow oligarchs and plutocrats (look it up) to define patriotism for us. We already have our definition based on these words from the Preamble of the US Constitution:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: 
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Some of what is being demanded by political leaders is actually much more anti-patriotic and injurious than people realize.  Don’t let anyone intimidate or shame you into silence  on any matter of concern.
