I haven’t gone through the thesis linked to up there. Not going too.
“…the US Constitution was designed, by Alexander Hamilton, to result in the tyrannical state we have today.”
The constitution was designed by Alexander Hamilton to enslave us?
Even Hamilton realized and confirmed that if the constitution is silent on a subject, then the government can confer no power from that silence. If it is not restricted by the Constitution … nor delegated by the same … there is absolutely no power.
Ya know, men can write Declarations of Independence, constitutions, and Bill of Rights … Articles of Confederation … in any form that they wish, until they are blue in the face. But, those Declarations of Independence, constitution’s, or Bill of Rights, mean NOTHING to the governments, or … even the people, disposed to usurp those objects. It is, and always will be, within the power, and the responsibility of the people, to be the final backbone of those objects. If the people are to lazy, and/or to busy, and/or to afraid to defend those objects and route those out who usurp those objects, by any and all means necessary, then it becomes obvious that the people could care less about those objects. Silence is acceptance. Lack of opposing resistance is acceptance.
When a man says he is going to enslave you, you reason with him. When he acts to enslave you by force … you kill him.
Words on a piece of paper mean nothing, if they mean nothing to those who read them and are not willing to defend the premises of what they read. No matter how many words or how it is written, it is still just a piece of paper with words on them.
Freedom and liberty is in the heart of man … or it is not. No piece of paper will give IT to you. And no piece of paper will defend IT for you.
What you had: A republic Madam … if you can keep it.
How to keep it: The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time by the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.
They understood that. Why can’t you?
There will ALWAYS be men who wish to enslave you. And no piece of paper can prevent that. Only you can.
I’ll go along that the constitution is not perfect. But how, do you make a constitution perfect upon imperfect men?
So, anyone care to tell me how our constitution put us, and allowed us, to be where we are today? How our constitution has allowed the government to enslave us … by using the constitution that we have? Or maybe someone can tell me how a piece of paper alone can guarantee liberty, freedom, justice, unalienable rights and etc.?
I hate to be the hairball in peoples throat, but … G. Bush was right when he said: “It’s just a g-d damn piece of paper!” Those who gave us our constitution KNEW THAT.
How do you codify in the absolute, unalienable rights on a piece of paper that will guarantee that those unalienable rights will not be tread upon by instituted governments? Or your … neighbor?
Might may not always make right. And might is no guarantee that right will prevail. But if might for the right is never used … then you accept the condition that you are in.
Personally, while I don’t believe that the constitution is perfect, it is as perfect as we are going to get. Our problems that we face today are no fault of our constitution … it is our fault that WE HAVE ALLOWED men who are disposed to usurp our constitution, to do so, with impunity, from the legislative to the executive to the judicial.
If anyone believes that they are going to make a more perfect absolute piece of paper that will ensure their absolute unalienable rights … they are dreaming.
Lucifer Geraldo at The Libertarian Enterprise – short essay supporting the ideas of Lysander Spooner and Boston T. Party that the US Constitution was designed, by Alexander Hamilton, to result in the tyrannical state we have today. Mr. Geraldo’s web site, infowarstoday.com, not to be confused with Alex Jones’ infowars.com, has lots more, including a very interesting copy of Aleister Crowley’s The Rights of Man, which I have copied below.

“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” —AL. I. 40
“thou hast no right but to do thy will. Do that, and no other shall say nay.” —AL. I. 42–3

to speak what he will:
to write what he will:
to draw, paint, carve, etch, mould, build as he will:

“take your fill and will of love as ye will,
when, where, and with whom ye will.” —AL. I. 51

“the slaves shall serve.” —AL. II. 58
