We are currently faced with many, many Constitutional issues that desperately need to be dealt with and first and foremost should be Article I, Section 8 Clause 1 and Clause 4 regarding the ability given to Congress to borrow money on the credit of the United States and the Power to Coin Money and regulate the weights and measures thereof. When were they given the authority to transfer that power to a private entity known as the "Federal Reserve", a consortium of International Bankers? Please read the Congressional Record of February 12, 1917 by Charles Lindbergh Sr. and Congressman Louis B. McFadden's remarks in Congress on the Federal Reserve Corporation, 1934.
Secondly, "The Missing 13th Amendment". Researcher David Dodge has uncovered very interesting evidence as to the Ratification of the Original 13th Amendment known as the "Titles of Nobility Amendment" (TONA). This Amendment added penalties to violations of the Titles of Nobility Clause.
Thirdly, the Commerce Clause, Article I, Section 8, Clause 2 which has allowed the Federal Government to effect every aspect of the lives of the Citizens of the Several States.
The 14th, 16th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution I feel, severely limited the Sovereignty of the Several States with the dual Citizenship of the 14th Amendment. Why could they not simply have voided the three-fifths clause. This has left the Citizenry not knowing whether they are citizens of a Sovereign State or citizens of the United States. The 16th Amendments taxing power coupled with the Federal Reserve's money power and with unfunded mandates by the Federal Government has greatly stressed the individual States' power to finance themselves, and the 17th Amendment which took the election of the Senators out of the hands of the Statehouses which were the most informed and needed equal representation within the houses of Government and gave it to the citizenry, who were the least informed, knowing that it is much easier to control the least informed that those that are the most informed.
I must say that it certainly appears to me that the one thing that the Mainstream Media on both liberal and conservative sides can agree on is the war effort, and the only thing it seem the two main political parties can agree on is restriction of independent or third parties. Perhaps, it is true that "We Have The Best Government that Money Can Buy". We may not be free, but we're cheap
This letter is not necessary for publication, but more for information and for my desire to see a deeper understanding of our Constitution and our Founding Principles, which I personally feel to be extremely lacking.
