Daily Bites of the Constitution of the United States
Reads From the Constitution in the Department of State's: 


We the People of the United States in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America. Article 1 legislative department: Section 1” Congress legislative powers vested: All legislative powers herein granted (by the people) shall be vested in a congress of the United States which shall consist of a senate and a house of representatives (for the people)


United States Constitution 

Our Problems Today by America’s Providential History, Steven K. McDowell and Mark A. Beliles page 257 c1989 

We know the importance of keeping our government as close to the people as possible. This is why our founders limited the power of the national government by keeping most of the power in the hands of the states or the people. Today the pyramid is now inverted and the States have become, in many ways, mere administrative extensions of Washington DC. How has this happened?

THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM IS ROOTED IN THE 14TH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION! After the Civil War congress desired to prevent the encroachment (to invade on others rights) of such an evil of slavery ever again. Though this was well intentioned the method of solving the problem was flawed.

 It started in paragraph 1: No state shall deprive any person of life, liberty or property WITHOUT DUE PROCESS OF LAW! Before the war some had refused to protect the inalienable rights of the blacks. The state legislatures and state courts were immoral because they rebelled against God’s higher law. But why could the legislature and courts get away with it? Because of the back slidden materialistic character of the people who elected them. The problem was with the loss of spirit of the Constitution, morality, spirituality and knowledge. When the war was over congress proposed two Amendments.

 The 13th was to abolish slavery. It was ratified by 3/4 of States in 1865. Six months later the 14th Amendment was proposed by congress to protect the right of all citizens. When it was examined by the state legislatures many rejected it on grounds it would undermine the founders idea...the problem being

in paragraph 5: THE CONGRESS SHALL HAVE POWER TO ENFORCE BY APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION THE PROVISIONS OF THIS ARTICLE. The southern states were for STRONG STATE GOVERNMENT AND MOST REFUSED TO RATIFY THE 14TH AMENDMENT. At this point the radical reconstruction congress made a serious mistake. Instead of listening to the objections of the wording of this Amendment they declared southern legislations to be illegal and placed them under martial law.

So if they were illegal then the 13th amendment (slavery abolished) was also illegal. therefore the 14th Amendment was passed by force and has become the significant cause of the growth of the national government today. The courts have increasingly struck down numerous state laws and the powers of the state have been greatly usurped in almost every Amendment that followed
Amendment 14, problem solving or over riding powers have been granted to the national government. (to be continued...The evils of Amendment 16)

Pearls Notes:

I know I'm just one little citizen but If I can be free to state my opinion I believe a convention of states should be called, not to add but to subtract some of these amendments and bring our country back to the founders intentions. On Nation Under God.

The Importance of a Moral Society
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
