Take Back The Power

 

Why?

Why do we want to eradicate Constitutional Law as it's currently understood? Like many people, we want to leave the world a better place for our having been here. We want a better world for our children and our children's children.

The USA was once the strongest nation on Earth, both militarily and economically. We didn't regulate ourselves into an economic powerhouse and we didn't tax ourselves into prosperity. We became prosperous and powerful with minimal government, minimal regulation and low taxes.

Bloated government is the cause of our decline as a world power. This decline, not to mention our respect in the international community, has coincided with the expansion of the federal government ("FedGov") into more and more of our working and private lives.

We are now less prosperous, less powerful, less respected and less free than were our American forebears. Unconstitutional government is to blame. If FedGov limited itself to those powers actually delegated to it in the Constitution, we would still be a strong, prosperous nation.

Why Us?

We're just ordinary citizens, concerned about the future. We can see where we've been as a country and we can see where we're going. We can't just sit and watch it happen. We can't do nothing.

We can see where this is heading and it is just a matter of time before there can be no good outcome. Government is bankrupting the country. We don't want to leave this mess for our children and grandchildren. That's why us.

Why Now?

It may not be too late, yet, to save the country. There will come a time, and soon, when the only way out is for the US to implode. This is what we're trying to prevent.


"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air — however slight — lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."

Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas


"Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."

Daniel Webster


"The true danger is when liberty is nibbled away, for expedience, and by parts. "

Edmund Burke


"Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people, by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations."

James Madison


"Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."

Justice Louis D. Brandeis, Olmstead vs. United States, 277 U.S. 438 (1928)
