Our elected officials are bound by oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution, not the will of the people. Only an oppressor would seek to destroy the Constitution in lieu of their agenda, for in so doing, they would in effect, be imposing their will upon the liberties of others.
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
Our Creator has given every individual their liberty, and our government is sworn to protect those liberties as penned within the Constitution of the United States of America. We must, as individuals, be prepared to suffer personal loss for the sake of liberty and justice for all. No sane individual looks forward to suffering, but endures the suffering, for the joy in which the end of that suffering, will bring.
So we suffer our personal causes for the sake of liberty and justice for all. Our legislation must reflect the liberties found within our Constitution else we all suffer loss, the loss of our liberties. We can no longer allow justice for some but not all. We must filter every ordinance through the Constitution in light of what is good for all, not based upon the cost of the thing, but upon the inalienable rights given to each of us by our Creator.
If we allow our cause to reign outside of our liberties, given to us by our Creator, then we open the door for others to have their causes also reign outside of our Creator given liberties. When this occurs, we have moved away from the rule of law (what is good for all, a Constitutional Republic), to the rule of man’s will (what is good for me, a democracy ruled by the majority). We must be wise, for we have allowed the majority to suppress the majority. Having moved away from a Constitutional Republic, we have opened the door to special interests controlled by those who have the majority of wealth and influence. But who among us trusts their-self enough to always do what is best not only for yourself, not only for another, but for all, even when that best places limits upon your own desires.
Therefor, let each of us pray for those elected. Their very desires war against the Constitutional desire to uphold what is good for all. Those whom our elected represent, their very desires too, wage war against doing what is good for all. The power of our government was limited for a reason. The one in charge today may have the will to do good. But what about the one tomorrow? We must pray and encourage our leaders to uphold our Constitution even when that limits our own personal agendas.
Let us remember our current elected officials are bound by oath and do not need our vote to keep it.
