A Southern Refresher Course on History:
It seems odd to me that there are so many people who seem to try to make a direct connection with the "founding fathers" of the united States and their constitution – or compact – that created a federal government. That compact was between the States. They created a central government for their mutual benefit. At that time there were no "American" citizens as some so fondly consider themselves today. Obviously, North America is a continent. The government people swear obeissance to now is that of the Yankee empire. The people were citizens of their State. Following Lincoln’s revolution the Washington government assumed a superior position over the erstwhile sovereign states that had created it. The nationalists and socialists weren’t able to create a U.S. citizen until July 9, 1868, when the 14th Amendment was unlawfully added to the constitution at bayonet point. This amendment radically changed the power and scope of the Washington government. The so-called Reconstruction Acts put into law what the illegal military actions of the usurpers had done by force.
Since that revolution we have no more connection with the founding fathers and the original constitutional republic of republics than they had with King George following the first revolution.
Robert E. Lee said: "All that the South has ever desired was the Union as established by our forefathers should be preserved and that the government as originally organized should be administered in purity and truth."
Jefferson Davis said: "The social problem of maintaining the just relation between constitution, government, and people has been found so difficult that human history is a record of unsuccessful efforts to establish it… In all free governments the constitution or organic law is supreme over the government, and in our federal union this was most distinctly marked by limitations and prohibitions against all which was beyond the expressed grants of power to the general government. In the foreground, therefore, I take the position that those who resisted violations of the compact were the true friends, and those who maintained the usurpation of undelegated powers were the real enemies of the constitutional union."
In the second American revolution the bad guys won.
They are still in power and won’t let a little thing like a constitution get in their way. As the Radical Republicans in Lincoln’s time and George Bush in our time said, "It’s just a d*** piece of paper." The argument for constitutional rights rings empty in the ears of the agents of the Yankee Empire.
Our rights don’t come from the constitution, they come from God and are "unalienable." But we can and will lose them if we allow a renegade government to take them away from us.
"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…"
This is the Lost Cause.
