So You Want To Take Your Country Back!

Do we really have what it takes to return to a Constitutional government?

How often have you heard this question lately? Especially during 2009? You’ve probably lost track of how many. If you’re reading this, the probability is you have said it yourself. Yes, I have also heard it many time and have also said it myself.

So, I decided to find out how we got this way. We now owe 12 trillion, 382 billion, 984 million, and some odd thousands---increasing so rapidly, I could not keep up with it---as of 4:40 pm, this afternoon, the 8th of February, 2010. This is $40,000 per person; $113,000 per taxpayer. Check for yourself. It will be even higher when you do. Click here: US Debt Clock.Org.

The promise that our taxes will not go up, ring hollow, as we know differently. I received my new co-pay schedule for my advantage program under Medicare, and they have gone up drastically. I am 78, and already, my medical teams are scheduling me for less follow-up visits for my cancer, as they will be paid less for my care. How many other seniors have found out the bad news about their care? And I will not get an increase in my social security for the next two years, at least. However, the government will take out more part B as a ‘premium’ on my advantage health program.

The printing of money by the Fed will cause inflation within, probably during the last part of this year, and will increase each year during the next few years. Inflation is a ‘hidden’ tax on everything that rises due to inflation.

Yes, I want to take my country back, and I have reviewed history of laws and events related to the constitution from its ratification until today. On September 17, 1787, the Constitution was signed. As dictated by Article VII, the document would not become binding until it was ratified by nine of the 13 states. Beginning on December 7, five states--Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, and Connecticut--ratified it in quick succession.

The ratification required 9 of the then 13 states. New Hampshire, The ninth state ratified the constitution on March 4, 1789, the beginning date for our government to begin operation (Source).

Interspersed among other posts on current news as it happens involving our government and the constitution, I will post a series of articles denoting the things I feel we must do to replace our present government, a government of the special interests, by those whose incumbency was paid for by special interests, and for the special interests with a government truly of the people, by the people, and for the people. There is a cost to taking our government back. It will be a long and difficult journey, as those currently in power will not want to leave! They will do everything, legal and illegal, to maintain all that the progressives have achieved. We have to be steadfast and make up our minds not to falter in the process.

I hope we are up to it. God bless our wonderful country.
