What Happened to Our Constitution?

DUNN LORING, VA — Regnery’s Politically Incorrect Guides, despite their coy titles, are an excellent series of correctives to liberal propaganda. I’d be tempted to call the 2007 book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution, by Kevin Gutzman, one of the most inspired, if only the other volumes I’ve seen weren’t so hard to top.

How to discuss this book without gushing superlatives? I find it even better than its advance praise announced. I’ve studied this subject for most of my adult life, and I can hardly imagine a better book of its kind — fearless, incisive, going straight for the intellectual jugular.

    In his First Inaugural Address in 1981, Reagan declared that,”government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

    “Every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.”

    “We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts–not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” Abraham Lincoln

    “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” -Thomas Jefferson

    None of us care what elected officials think! We do, however, care about their actions.It is, “We the People,” not “We the government.”

    Either elected officials know when they violate the Constitution and their Oaths of Office to protect and defend it, or they do not. We the People know. And we do not like the loss of freedom. We dislike their decision – without our input, of course.Their unconstitutional behavior makes them domestic enemies of the Constitution, as such, are an Outlaw Govt..So the burdon to resolve this delima falls on us,We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts.
