You are misinformed; a testimony to compulsory state factory schools and government propaganda. Language changes with time. The meaning of the Constitution does not. The Constitution memorializes the Natural and therefore unalienable rights of the individual. The Constitution established a strictly limited federal government which sole purpose for existing is to protect individual rights and provide for the defense of the United States. That is all. When government expands beyond the enumerated powers granted its actions are unconstitutional and therefore unlawful.
We need yet another law to add to the tens of thousands already on the books. Every new ordinance, law, tax and regulation of the private sector by government erodes liberty thorough incrementalism.

Didn’t Ski Corp’s parent company just do a $50 million stock buy back reducing shares outstanding increasing earnings per share? Didn’t the cost of season ski passes increase for 2015/2016? Why are the people subsidizing a private for profit company?
An important clarification: you state; “…that right was provided to me in the U.S. Constitution (2nd Amendment FYI)”. This implies that those drafting the Constitution and Bill of Rights granted you this right. Government doesn’t grant rights. Your right to be armed in unalienable
Stock buybacks inflate share prices and increase earnings per share while producing nothing of tangible value. Rather than investing in products and services to grow earnings corporate executives simply reduce the number of shares outstanding in order to increase earnings per share.
You are correct. It is the combination of the Warfare/Welfare State that has bankrupted America. A permanent war economy along with a Welfare State funded by debt, taxes and inflation is destructive to a free market economy. Every dollar spent on war or welfare is a dollar not spent in the private sector. Every person employed in the Military Industrial Congressional Complex, or who lives on welfare, is a person not employed in the civilian economy. Welfare includes corporate welfare, a form of fascism, which plunders the people for the benefit for those that control the government. America’s war economy and Welfare State exist at the expense of, and are destructive to a free market capitalist system. Both are responsible for the bankruptcy of America.
The people can’t afford to maintain the infrastructure and pay for the Military Industrial Congressional Complex that has bankrupted the country.
Agenda 21 is the rabid environmentalist’s scheme to control every aspect of human existence under the banner of “sustainability”, all of course controlled by an “enlightened” ruling elite. The Constitution, and the State Sovereignty it documents, is a troublesome obstacle to this goal. Agenda 21 is a Globalist Trojan Horse to bypass the Constitution that recognizes individual liberty.
What hypocrisy from a partisan hack that votes precisely as ordered by his big government bosses in DC. “Under every rock lurks a politician "…Aristophanes
Individual rights were not an afterthought for the United States were founded upon the idea of self ownership and freedom. King George thought of the people in the Colonies as subjects while the people thought of themselves as free. The Revolutionary War was about freedom and individual liberty. When the Framers drafted the Constitution the majority understood that individual rights were implied. Anti-Federalists insisted later that the Bill of Rights be included so that the ordinary person could understand that individual rights are an innate and fundamental part of the Constitution.
The misnamed “Civil War”, Lincoln’s unconstitutional War of Northern Aggression, was an unlawful act of the federal government. Gun control advocates should pay particular attention to the fact that the federal government has waged total war against Americans, including civilians, resulting in the slaughter of, at last count, more than 700,000 Americans, 50,000 of which were women and slaves. It can be argued that any Constitutional Amendments done at the point of a bayonet following Lincoln’s unconstitutional war are therefore illegitimate.
“We the People” are the operative words. The power and authority come from the people who then granted limited powers to the government. When the government usurps the enumerated strictly limited powers these unconstitutional actions are unlawful by definition. It then follows that most of what the federal government does is beyond the enumerated powers and is therefore unlawful.
