Put some nice, long, jaggedy teeth in the Bill of Rights

• by L. Neil Smith (The Libertarian Enterprise)
We are helping to promote a White House petition in favor of a Constitutional amendment that would put some nice, long, jaggedy teeth in the Bill of Rights. Believe it or not, it's even more Draconian the the clause I've been promoting for years.

I don't believe our society suffers from the wrong laws or not enough good ones. The law is a tool of the totalitarians used to justify their actions. Whatever the law says it will be used to enslave as long as a monopoly on force exists. A free market in force is needed: Every person a sovereign, i.e., no sovereign government.

I'm with Monroe in his comment below. It seems that lawyers have some of the lowest spelling and grammar IQs. And it is the same with patriot lawyers as the regular ones. Words and grammar DO have meaning.

Obama is guilty of treason all over the place. The people seem to like it that way. "Guilty of treason" isn't teeth. It's the same old thing. "Teeth" starts with specific punishments for specific acts or specific negligence, in list form. And the punishments are REAL, not some slap on the hands.

We can do this because we have some experience over the past 200+ years. We know what works and what doesn't.

Oops, forgot to add "serving in - done below:

Any official, appointed to, hired by, serving in, or elected to at any body of the federal government who introduces or votes any bill, or enforces any law, that violates an individuals rights under any of the 1st 10 amendents, or the 14th amendment to the US constituion, shall be judged guilty of treason.

Can be shortened by writing:

Any official serving in, whether by appointment, hiring, volunteering, or election, any body of the federal government who introduces or votes in favor of any bill, or enforces any law, that violates an individual's rights under any of the 1st 10 amendents, or the 14th amendment to the US constituion, shall be judged guilty of treason.

Consider the highlighted phrase in the second paragraph in the petition: 

Any official, appointed or elected at any level of government who introduces or votes any bill, or enforces any law, that violates an individuals rights under any of the 1st 10 amendents, or the 14th amendment to the US constituion, shall be judged guilty of treason.

Consider changing the paragraph as follows:

Any official, appointed to, hired by, or electedto at any body of the federal government who introduces or votes any bill, or enforces any law, that violates an individuals rights under any of the 1st 10 amendents, or the 14th amendment to the US constituion, shall be judged guilty of treason.

Use of the word "level" implies that one body of the federal government is superior in "rank" to another.  Of course, that is what is widely believed, accepted and practiced; however, in a federal government with distributed powers, each body outranks all the other bodies in the discharge of its specific obligations, those obligations reserved or delegated by legislation or long practice.

Also, in addition to being appointed or elected, individuals can be hired (as lower ranking police officers)  or merely serve in (as in reserve deputies, many unpaid) various bodies of government.

I am wondering if anyone with an IQ above 100 has signed this proposed amendment. Having read it I will state, without reservation, that I would not sign or endorse this proposed amendment on a bet! It has grammatical errors and worse it has a grave philosophical error by including the 14th amendment. Worst of all is to propose that the federal government do the investigation of any violations. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Monroe
