Why Our Constitution is Worth Fighting For: The Supreme Court does its job, somewhat

Understanding and Defending our Constitution

When I first started this blog, I had in mind something like what formed this country, a healthy debate on the nature of our Republic in the form of what we know today as the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers. Back when we were trying to figure out how to have a proper government, some of the founding fathers would contribute essays to the local newspapers making the debate on what the federal government should look like. This process went on for quite a long time. What we know of today as those books is essentially a collection of those essays that formed the constitutional convention and would include our Constitution and, eventually, the Bill of Rights. I’ve never been a big fan of Alexander Hamilton, even though the town I live in is named after him. He’s too much of a big government guy for me. I associate much more with the Anti-Federalists. But to give Hamilton credit, we needed a reference point to settle the Articles of Confederation, which was not sufficient after the Revolutionary War to run a country. I think the debate to form our American Constitution is one of the most advanced processes ever to form a government in the history of the world, and the results paid off. I keep both of those books next to my reading chair and refer to them constantly, just for fun. 

Those books gave me the understanding to handle many complicated problems over the last year or so, everything from election fraud to this latest problem of the Biden vaccine mandates. It was more than just a little satisfying to see it all blow up in the Biden administration’s face this past week of mid-January 2022. With the filibuster intact in the Senate, the Democrats have no chance to change election laws to keep them in power in 2022, which they had to have. They can’t win without cheating, just as they did in the 2020 election to get rid of Trump. When all this started back during that election, remember what I said. Don’t freak out. Let the process run its course. Trust our constitutional system even though it is evident that the Biden administration and Democrats, in general, wanted to get rid of the Constitution. Evidently, the Davos crowd and the other globalists worldwide had no fundamental understanding of our Constitution, nor did they care to learn.   As Progressives, they fully intended to move beyond our Constitution and the great work that the Founding Fathers did to form the United States. Their game was to accelerate things so fast that the courts would never catch up to the aggressive actions to overthrow the country, which the Biden clan have been attempting to do. As things would get hot, I would refer to those books for the many thousands of times that I have before, and I could see how it would end up. Our Republic was designed to handle just these kinds of problems, and it was working to my eyes. The proof came on January 13th around 2:45 PM when our Supreme Court issued a strike down of the OSHA vaccine mandates Biden had attempted to pass through executive order. 

I think it has been a precious lesson to watch how everyone behaved during all this mess. In my own book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business, I feel relieved to see that my opinions were not isolated into some bubble of conservative thought born out of midwestern politics but were highly relevant in corporate America across the world. The Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers could probably be applied to every small village in Africa or South America. All over Europe. Everywhere. It’s not just a set of laws that we have in America, but the foundation of a functioning republic that can function over vast distances that makes it an incredible work of philosophy surpassing in my mind any of the works done by Rome, Greece, the Indus Valley, Egypt, or any of the Dynasties of the Orient. Never in the history of the world was there such a proper set of laws and order to establish the best government possible to the minds of humanity than what is talked about in those books. I’ve read them all, and there isn’t anything better than the documents that formed our Republic. And so long as we had a Supreme Court following those ideas, much of this Biden tyranny would be eliminated. The originators of Covid never planned for our Constitution, and it shows. When it was announced that the Supreme Court had made a 6 to 3 decision against the Biden Executive Orders, the pride I felt made a lot of all this pain worth it. Because not only had it been horrifying at times, but we’ve never seen our system tested like this before, especially from domestic enemies, and it had held turning theory into reality. Thank goodness Trump had three picks for the Supreme Court during his one turbulent term. It’s probably the most important thing to come out of the Trump presidency. 

Because of my love of those books, I was more than familiar with the constitutional challenges that worked at all levels of politics and really rattled the cages of people with powerful positions. I can’t say that I was ever apprehensive that the rule of law would not hold. But at the rate of change coming from the Biden administration, his masters in the United Nations and China, and the donor class, which is different in many cases, the main weakness of the Constitution and our Republic in general is time. Things are meant to take a long time in our government, to keep the breaks on during hot human sentiment. China brags about how fast it can do something with centralized authority. Democrats drool at the power of the centralized state because that’s how they want things to be in America, more like China, where a mob of administrative tyrants can do and say whatever they want. In America, it takes a long time to sift through the legislative process, and if the idea survives, we would consider it a good thing. But it’s the rushes to judgment that we always want to put the brakes on, and that is what has been assaulted by our enemies recently, especially after Trump left office. The speed of our innovation comes from free people, which is the key to everything. Not the government, so bureaucrats have a tough time getting their minds around such a concept. When the Federalist Papers and Anti-Federalist Papers were written, and our Constitution was formed with the Bill of Rights to follow, all this was figured out, and now we have the results of the greatest nation on earth to prove it works. And now, even under great assault, it has operated under very tenuous conditions, and that is something we should all take pride in. Of course, the fights are far from over, but a big blow occurred in that Supreme Court decision that will reverberate historically for the next century. It was an easy case for them to decide on, can the Federal government compel health decisions, and the answer was always no. But the big-government types had more intrusions in mind to follow should they manage to make that Biden executive order stick. And now those big global plans are blown out of the water. There will not be a global takeover of America from the Davos crowd or anybody else without some form of physical assault. And in a country full of guns, that option isn’t a good one for them either. Our Republic is still standing, and now more people than ever are empowered to fight back, and it makes my love for those books even that much more powerful, fueled by a pride few in the world could understand.
