Common Sense Too: Part 2
Bill of Rights Used Against Us:|
Further proof of the original intent of our government is in the Bill of Rights, otherwise known as the first ten amendments to the constitution. These ten amendments were added to allay men’s fear about the over reaching power of a central government. These ten amendments were added to protect every man from the government, not to give the government added power. Common Sense would lead one to know that, if a “Bill of Rights” was added to the constitution to restrict the power of the federal government, then the intent of limited government was the design of our founding fathers. The following is the “Bill of Rights” to our constitution.
The Preamble to The Bill of Rights
Congress of the United States begun and held at the City of New-York, on Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.
THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.
RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.
ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The Bill of Rights Amendment I to X
The tyrants that oppress us will down play the ninth and tenth amendment of the constitution listed above as nothing more than a truism; that is to say the ninth and tenth amendments add nothing to the constitution, as the thoughts contained there within are understood by all men, without the need for documentation. This view is an absurd position. If our constitution requires no clarification then why is there a need for a Supreme Court to determine constitutionality of legislation?
USE YOUR COMMON SENSE! We have two amendments in our constitution specifically designed to protect us from the evils of government intervention, as identified by Thomas Paine in “Common Sense”. With these two amendments added, any fair jurist, when confronted with conflicts unresolved in the constitution between the government and men, would fairly rule on the side of men, not the government. But as our current state of government tyranny can confirm such, the jurist in our highest court are not up to this task and have chosen to consider the ninth and tenth amendment as little more than a truism, to their gain and our loss.
Here again is disturbing words from the Supreme Court ruling on United States vs Darby (1941) dismissing the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution:
Our conclusion is unaffected by the Tenth Amendment which provides: 'The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people'. The amendment states but a truism that all is retained which has not been surrendered. There is nothing in the history of its adoption to suggest that it was more than declaratory of the relationship between the national and state governments as it had been established by the Constitution before the amendment or that its purpose was other than to allay fears that the new national government might seek to exercise powers not granted, and that the states might not be able to exercise fully their reserved powers.
Supreme Court Ruling United States vs Darby
Let us imagine the logic that a Supreme Court justice would use if he were motivated by his own biases to support Social Security Benefits. He would justify in his own mind that if these benefits were not provided, many seniors would be put out on the street or would have to work past retirement, so the cause is good. As the distress of these citizens could spill outside state boundaries if these benefits were not provided, the federal government has the power to provide these benefits. Since the resources to tax the people twice to provide for their retirement is not feasible and since the federal government is superior to the state government, the state would not have the ability to provide for their citizens as well as the federal government could. The Supreme Court justices misinterprete the commerce clause, and ignore the 9th and 10th amendments as truisms, as selective consideration of the constitution is to his advantage.
