An Inviolable Respect For The Constitution And Laws
October 27, 2011 by Bob Livingston
The imperial Presidency and its enabling Congress have long subverted the Constitution: the imperial President through executive orders and the appointment of czars that impose regulation through unConstitutional government agencies, the enabling Congress by legislating in matters that are not enumerated and by ceding its duties under Article I, Section 1, which says: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
The result is endless wars and a growing tyranny.
In an essay in the American Daily Advertiser, Alexander Hamilton succinctly summed up how best to preserve our liberty. He wrote:
If it be asked, What is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be, An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws — the first growing out of the last. … A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.
It’s easy to spot those of the elected class that don’t hold “An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws.” It is our duty as citizens to purge the government of them and install a new class that does.
