Natural law as understood by the founders had natural consequences. The quote explains very well the dumbing down, economic devastation, and the debilitating despotism of the statist theocracy infesting this land.

    TRUE. The Bill of Rights are known as amendments to the Constitution but several states only ratified the Consititution after it was agreed that a Bill of Rights would be added. If the government formed by this Constitution ignores the Bill of Rights, it betrays the trust of the American People and nullifies the agreement that put it in power. Often our government twist the text of the Consititution and the Bill of Rights until they come up with something that is completely unrecognizable and contrary to liberty. We the People must force our government to abide by the original meaning of these sacred documents and the spirit in which they were passed. My fellow citizens, do not be fooled; there is no need to interpret, the Constitution means exactly what it says.

    The Bill of Rights vs. Tax Tyranny and the Patriot Act. Hmmm, something isn't adding up here.

    Guys like Carlton using phrases like "tax tyranny" to define our freely and democratically enacted tax laws is what the problem is with our country. Let us start talking intelligently.

    Waffler, to claim that the tax tyranny in Amerika was freely or democratically enacted is a declaration of ignorance (at best). Were is the innocent until proven guilty, the constitutional provision that authorizes general criminal authority, etc.? I once worked with a group that put together an air tight case showing the 16th Amendment had never been constitutionally passed (early 80s). The case would not be accepted in any court in the nation. Finally, I think by accident, a Federal court allowed it and then, at the start went into recess. After a year or so of recess, I lost contact with the case. To speak intelligently, would be to describe a democracy as tyranny. Since tyranny, government crimes and otherwise slavery are freedom to you, then we have entirely differing views of intelligence.
