Supporters of the monster state love using the term “inflation” not to describe inflation, but the effects of it. That way, when they “take action” against inflation, they never go after the root cause – and continue to use it as a tool to expand their power and control.

Today, we live under the largest government in history – this couldn’t be further from the system of the founders under the Constitution. So some people take the position that the Constitution itself failed to limit government. But, is that the case, or is there some other cause the Founders would point to?

In July 1775, Benjamin Franklin introduced a formal plan for uniting the colonies – “The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.” He read it to the Second Continental Congress nearly a year before the Declaration of Independence and the first drafts of what became our first constitution, the Articles of Confederation.

In his 4th speech during the Virginia Ratifying Convention, Patrick Henry made the case that the constitution was being sold as a response to dangers that didn’t truly exist – but instead created an even greater one, consolidation.

Using the wrong strategy to defeat government infringements can often cause more damage than doing nothing at all. And this is exactly what has been happening in the so-called “2nd Amendment Sanctuary” movement. With the latest defeat coming in court in Yamhill, County Oregon.

The first attempt in history to include anti-slavery, free-soil provisions into a national constitutional instrument was written by Thomas Jefferson. Most historians teach us about the slave-owning of Jefferson – which is important history, but they ignore this fact, and fact that his text of 1784 was copied almost verbatim as Section 1 of the 13th Amendment.

From a four-step plan to undermine and defeat federal programs in 1788, to a duty to interpose in 1798 – and nullification as a natural right in 1834 – James Madison saw the states and people as essential checks on federal power.

“Treason against the sovereignty of the people” is how St. George Tucker described usurpation – or theft – of power by government. But this view was nothing new – the founders and old revolutionaries had long understood usurpation to be an act of tyranny, even including it in the Declaration of Independence.

Responding to Federalist claims that rejecting ratification would lead to danger, chaos and potential ruin, Patrick Henry took the other side, “it is the fortune of a free people not to be intimidated by imaginary dangers” and urged the addition of a bill of rights first.

Government schools never teach this stuff. But the American Revolution – and the War for Independence – were about much more than “taxation without representation.” The Revolution was about unlimited, arbitrary power – complete and total supremacy over the colonies. And the battles started over a British gun control program.

Incorporation – the legal doctrine whereby the Supreme Court applies the Bill of Rights to the states, was not part of the original, legal meaning of the Constitution. Instead, it arose out of the 14th Amendment, and the court first started applying it “selectively” in 1925.

One of the grievances in the Declaration of Independence, the founders and old revolutionaries not only rejected the notion of “arbitrary” government, they considered it the definition of a tyranny.

Few people understand the root cause of the economic troubles we face, but the founding generation knew the situation well. For many, the “evils of paper money” were tyrannical and despotic. Or, as George Washington warned, it would “ruin commerce, oppress the honest, and open a door to every species of fraud and injustice.”

Approved unanimously on June 12, 1776, the Virginia Declaration of Rights, drafted primarily by George Mason, is one of the most important founding documents that many people have never even heard of.
