Representatives are, “trustees and servants of the people, and at all times amenable to them”. Whenever government should be found inadequate or contrary to these purposes, the majority of the community hath an indubitable, unalienable and indefeasible right to reform (it). , in such a manner, as shall be the most conducive the public weal.
Make no mistake about it, we have to watch these trustees; so many are untrustworthy, and they do not serve us like they should, accountability is a must! we must hold them accountable!
America must reject the military industrial complex. The tragedy of our foreign policy is driven not by what our leaders believe is best for the people but by the drive for profits by the munitions makers, Bankers and other rift-raft who profit from death, debt, destruction and defeat.
Dwight D Eisenhower.
- When ever there is interest and power to do wrong, wrong will generally be done, and not less readily by a powerful and interested party, then by a prince. Whenever the real power in a government lies, in the majority of the community, government is the mere instrument of the major number of constituents.
- James Madison.
There are only 2 things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the bill of rights.” War is a racket. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives:
Quoted by 2 times Medal of Honor winner:Marine Major General Smedley Butler- book about his life “Devil Dog”
A rigid economy of the public contributions and absolute interdiction of all useless expenses will go far towards keeping the government honest and UN-oppressive.
Thomas Jefferson, letter to Lafayette, 1823
An elective despotism was not the government we fought for; but one in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among the several bodies of magistracy as that no one could transcend their legal limits without being effectually checked and restrained by the others.
James Madison, Federalist No. 58, 1788
We have loss the checks and balances of the federal government , through backdoor deals and chicanery,
But ambitious encroachments of the federal government, on the authority of the State governments, would not excite the opposition of a single State, or of a few States only. They would be signals of general alarm… But what degree of madness could ever drive the federal government to such an extremity.
James Madison, Federalist No. 46, January 29, 1788
Each State, in ratifying the Constitution, is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others, and only to be bound by its own voluntary act. In this relation, then, the new Constitution will, if established, be a FEDERAL, and not a NATIONAL constitution.
James Madison, Federalist No. 39, January 1788
Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm.
James Madison, Federalist No. 10, November 23, 1787
