What Are We thinking? Doing?

Greetings! Over the last 7 years I have been watching the things around me.  I have been asking questions of myself and because I am blessed to have some friends who hold public office, I have been asking them some questions and trying to encourage them. It is so difficult for me to put a date on things because of my Christian Faith and my worldview, but I am not sure if I were to be honest, and I will be, that I could say I have been totally comfortable since the 60’s.

We live and we get involved in what we are doing with family and children and work and other that we simply don’t stop to think about what is going on, I mean critically think. What is going on? Make sense? I will talk more about this on my next podcast which will be later this week.

I would argue that we I am not a Constitutional expert, but I am more than a superficial observer. I have come to be that over the past several years. Do you ever ask questions like how the U.S. Supreme Court makes a decision on “gay marriage” and say it is legal and right and the law of the land changes from what has been acceptable marriage for millennia. How do they do that? Does the U.S. Constitution say they are so powerful that they can do things like that and then we are to accept their determination. Based on what, Case Law as a precedent? How about the U.S. Constitution and Natural Law?

You ask, are the 3 branches co-equal? Answer, no they are not. Read Articles 1, 2, 3, of the Constitution? Which is most powerful? In the Federalist Paper 51* Madison said the Legislative branch “necessarily predominates” because it is the branch closest to the people. In Federalist Paper 78*, Hamilton said the Judiciary was the weakest branch and would not be a threat to our liberty if it remained in its proper jurisdiction.

…the judiciary is beyond comparison the weakest of the three departments of power…the general liberty of the people can never be endangered from that quarter; I mean so long as the judiciary remains truly distinct from both the legislature and the Executive…And it proves, in the last place, that as liberty can have nothing to fear from the judiciary alone, but would everything to fear from its union with either of the other departments; …*

This is just an example of some things we need to consider as we work to become citizens who know our Bible’s and The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. We can do this, but we have to get out and do it!

We will touch base on other issues and work to get clarification so we can be the kind of citizens we need to be for Jesus and for our families and our fellow citizens. Stand Up! Be Fearless! Be Educated! Be Vocal! Tell those who serve you in the U.S. Congress and in the Executive and Judiciary, it is the U.S. Constitution and the law, not a king or queen or ‘government who is in charge. What are We the People, thinking? Doing? Let’s do all we do for our Lord Jesus and for Freedom!!!

I’ll be back!
