Subject: Liberty or Tyranny?

The founders of our nation knew that if the government was allowed to be the judge, the jury and the executioner, the people would become victims of tyranny. They also understood that the concentration of power was potentially dangerous power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. When a government that writes the law also has the power to interpret the law and to enforce the law, the people become victims of tyranny.
The purpose of a just laws are to promote liberty and to protect property. The purpose of unjust laws is to allow governments to legalize the plunder of other people’s property. According to the Supreme Court in Marbury vs Madison 1803 laws that are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.
The Constitution was written to protect the rights rights of the people not give the government the power to control the people. They knew that if the government that was supposed to be our servant would one day become our master. They knew that power corrupts and that absolute power corrupts absolutely. They understood that those in power would to write laws that would benefit themselves personally as well as their partners in crime..
They designed our government to have limited power. They did not want the government that they had just created to endanger the life, liberty and property of the people. That is why in Article I Section 8 of the Constitution they sought to control the government by limiting the legislative authority of Congress to an area not to exceed ten miles square. The jurisdiction of our federal government does not exist outside to the territory known as the District of Columbia.
Before the ink on Constitution had dried, there were those in high places that sought to use the Constitution to create an empire in America,. These individuals, led by Alexander Hamilton, knew that if the Constitution were to be strictly followed they would be unable to achieve their objectives.
Hamilton and his disciples were determined to have the Constitution interpreted in a manner that would enable them to achieve their goals. The founders believed the newly formed government should only have the authoirty that was specifically granted to them in Article I Section 8. Hamilton believed that there were powers that were not delegated but were implied.
Most of the problems we have today are the result of the acceptance of the idea that the government can do whatever our leaders feel are necessary and proper. This doctrine of Implied Powers has allowed our government to assume powers and authority beyond those delegated to them in the Constitution.

OK here it is Folks. I tried to keep it brief but, oh well, maybe next
time. Anyway, email this to everybody close enough to attend. The ones
who are not close enough to attend, talk them into holding a class in
their area. I’m asking every one of you that is reading this to print
out this flyer and post it everywhere. Churches, barber shops, garages,
diners, etc. Get it into as many gun clubs as you can. We need to pack
this thing out.
The Punxsy Community Center is the old Punxsy High School and we have
the auditorium which seats 1,000. The only stipulation is that we HAVE
to be out by 6pm because the projector guys come in to set up for the
evening movie. I did forget to put on here that we will be breaking for
an hour for lunch. There are numerous places to eat in town or bring
Donations will be greatly appreciated and we will have a jar set by the
door for such gifts.
