“If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. If there are any circumstances which permit an exception, they do not now occur to us.”
West Virginia State Bd. of Educ. v. Barnette [319 U.S. on p.642]
The United States of America was birthed by the 1777 Articles of Confederation and was made “a more perfect union” of Independent Nation States by the Constitution
Those “Independent Countries” known as “the several States” were, are and continue to be Republics i.e. . . always have been, always will be . . unlike a Democracy which is Socialistic in that it does not respect individual Rights nor the Rule of Law as detailed in the The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America (Clause 2)
The maintenance of our natural & self-evident Rights requires freedom of speech and of the press, and at times, Redress . . now almost extinct 😦 by design of the tyrants that oppress You
However, the foundation of those 3 enumerated Rights is the Right of Conscience aka Freedom of Religion, as found in Article 4 of the NH Bill of Rights as well as in Jeremiah 31: 32 -34 – These Rights make up the “1st Amendment to the Constitution for the united States of America. These are Pre-Constitutional natural Rights.
Your conscience is WHY you even bother to speak up at all . . . to express what YOU believe to be right and wrong, in accord to Your Conscience, which is that law spoken of in Jeremiah and laid on your heart as Your Creator’s will for Your life . . that is why we must be careful how we judge a man that has caused harm to no one [no MENS REA, no Corpus Delecti]
. . speaking YOUR conscience in a corrupt environment is likely to get you killed by those with different plans for Your future, and THAT is why WE need the full freedom and flexibility expressed in the 2nd amendment to the United States Bill of Rights as well as in Article 2 of the New~Hampshire Bill of Rights.
How are we to defend our Rights to Conscience without proper Arms?
I agree, support, and stand with
. . but there’s so much more that needs to be secured besides the 2nd Amendment which is intended to secure our ability to defend all other Rights . . i.e. Right of Conscience
Unfortunately, most people focus on only the 2nd Amendment and pay little or no attention to the others, like the 3rd Amendment which keeps “Big Brother” out of your living room.
. . and the 9th Amendment which secures ALL Pre-Constitutional Rights such as the Right to Face Your Accuser or to settle a matter privately prior to Court, neither of which are mentioned anywhere in the Bill of Rights.
. . and what of Your Right to an impartial Jury of Your Peerage in accord with the Statute of Staples of 1353 . . where did that disappear to? . . i don’t know, but it is secured by the 9th Amendment.
. . . . and did you realize the “Consent of the Governed” is what Jury Nullification is all about? . . . that Right is also secured by the 9th Amendment cuz it’s yet another Pre-Constitutional natural Right.
The 2nd Amendment stands not alone to secure your Rights, as this “Right to bear Arms” ALSO pre-dates the Constitution and is also thus secured by the 9th amendment . . as is the right to associate with like minded people called a Militia who are mandated to be the law enforcement of every community. (see Committees of Safety)
I could go on for hours about this stuff, but why bother, most people are only interested in the 2nd Amendment and then, dancing with the stars, golf or Bass fishing . . they don’t study shit and can’t be bothered with too big a dose of reality cuz they’d never have time for those weekend hunting and fishing trips . . . and you wonder why women have so little respect left for the “men” in your society?
Why is it that these “men” have yet to hear of the Committees of Safety or the Committees of Correspondence . . it’s truly sad that the public education system has stripped so much history from existence.
Yes, it takes a lot of persistence and dedication to learn all that is important for the maintenance of freedom and liberty . . but what choice do you have?
How much longer will you wear the hair off the back of your head?
Please, stop relying on others to do your part.
Simply commit to doing more today than you did yesterday,
and soon enough, things will improve.
. . or you can just sit there like a socialist
expecting everyone else to carry your load,
. . and when it’s your life that’s being liquidated,
We won’t know, cuz no one will be left to care
Anyway, enough rambling from me,
i just needed to air out when I saw
the image below posted on Facebook.
The second amendment was written in the summer of 1789 – thirteen years after the unanimous Declaration – it was ratified in December of 1791 in order to “form a more perfect union” of the 13 sovereign nations.
– more perfect than what?
i hope you know that answer by now
