Losing the intent of the Constitution

For more than two centuries, America was considered the greatest, most powerful, richest, and most respected nation on Earth.

Recently, we have staggered, struggled, overtaxed, and created a parasitic parade of under educated, underprivileged leeches who are satisfied to live off others’ work while raping, robbing and shooting anyone who doesn't freely give them whatever they think they deserve.

Our very culture is being destroyed by political hacks who refuse to foster freedoms guaranteed by Nature and God. Political correctness has wrecked free speech, one is racist if he speaks his mind, even though most who use "racist" can't define it.

The Constitution states "promote the general welfare,” not provide it. Promote when used by our Founding Fathers is very definite according to their writings and The Federalist Papers. Congress was given power to lay and collect taxes to defend this country from within and without. Nothing in the Constitution, written or implied, authorized Congress to give money or interfere in schools, insurance, free food, housing, cell phones, computers and hundreds of things that they do illegally in their effort to buy votes.

If one can’t understand the intent of the writers of the Constitution, homework instead of recent political opinion or their own interpretation should be required reading.

As I said before, I am a firm believer that a Constitution that worked for so many years does not need changing or straying from the original intent. This country did well until we wandered in morals and law allowing government to control us instead of "we the people" controlling government.

These same politicians allowed the Federal Reserve to charge ridiculous interest rates on the money we own and print. The Federal Reserve is a private corporation owned by private bankers who care less for America and its people, only in keeping us in debt so they can collect interest on our own money which they lend to us. What a racket, as only Congress is authorized to print money and set its value.
