What are the basic concepts of US Government?
Freedom Outpost – Publius Huldah – 3/16/2013
c) Previously, churches were the moral authorities in our country. But the national government has eliminated that moral authority! Even though the modern “welfare” state is based on Coercion & Looting & Distribution of Plunder to favored groups – the legalization of Envy & Theft  – the Pastors dare not speak out against it – they have been silenced by the 501 c (3) tax exemption. So we have been deprived of the benefit of their moral guidance on issues affecting our country – that’s what the national government demands! So the churches are restricted to speaking on saving souls, “escape” or “rescue” from this Earth, what happens when we’re dead, and other such matters that don’t challenge Caesar’s sovereignty on Earth. For Caesar claims that the Earth and everything on it belongs to him!
When speaking of the national government, do not confuse its few powers – those enumerated in the U.S. Constitution – with the more extensive powers that may be granted to State and local governments in their constitutions.
The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those that are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people….
The federal government isn’t supposed to have anything to do with our lives, liberties and properties except as follows: Other than those in military service, it has no lawful criminal jurisdiction over us unless we are counterfeiters, pirates or traitors; it has no civil jurisdiction over us unless we file for bankruptcy; if we are inventors or writers, it secures for us the rights to patents & copyrights; it makes rules for naturalizing new citizens, and it delivers our mail! (Art I, Sec 8 & Art III, Sec 3,
Constitution) That’s basically it, U.S.
Our Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land (Art VI, cl.2); and anything contrary to our Constitution is lawlessness – no matter who in office or on the bench does it.
The judiciary, the Congress, and the Executive Branch impose their unfettered wills on us; and THIS is how we have been transformed from a “free state” where we were governed by the constitution and laws; into a despotic state, where we are governed by the edicts or commands of judges, congressmen & senators, presidents, and meddlesome federal agencies.
THE STATIST VIEW IS THAT RIGHTS COME FROM “THE GOVERNMENT”. THE STATISTS ARE NOT CONCERNED WITH LIFE,
AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS! 
TO THEM, A “RIGHT” IS A CLAIM FOR STUFF PAID FOR BY SOMEBODY ELSE: THE “RIGHT”
TO A PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION; THE “RIGHT” TO MEDICAL CARE; THE “RIGHT” TO
HOUSING; ETC. BUT IT IS A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS – IT IS A PERVERSION – TO
SPEAK OF “RIGHTS” TO STUFF THAT IS PRODUCED BY, OR PAID FOR, BY OTHERS! TO HOLD
THAT PEOPLE WHO PRODUCE EXIST TO BE PLUNDERED BY CIVIL GOVERNMENT FOR THE
OSTENSIBLE BENEFIT OF OTHERS IS NOTHING LESS THAN SLAVERY. JUST AS NO ONE HAS
THE RIGHT TO OWN ANOTHER HUMAN BEING; SO NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO OWN THE FRUITS
OF ANOTHER MAN’S LABORS. LIBERTY
When the “creature” usurps powers not granted in the Constitution, the “Creators” are not bound by the usurpations. Those usurpations are, by definition, lawless. When this happens, the States have the Right and the Duty to rein in their creation – for the creature has become Frankenstein.
