The American Revolution

No, not the Revolution against Great Britain.  The ongoing Revolution against the United States of America, which was created between 1776 (the Declaration of Independence) and 1789 (the Constitution).

The Founding Fathers anticipated and provided for change.  Article V of the Constitution spells out the procedure for “Amendments to this Constitution”.  But when Article V is not followed, change is not constitutional — it is Revolution.

Those who advocate Revolution and those who oppose it disagree about what the Founding Fathers meant when they wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

The Declaration of Independence says “all men are created equal”.  Did the Founding Fathers mean corporations and human beings “are created equal”?

The Declaration of Independence says all men are created with certain “unalienable Rights” that include “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  Did the Founding Fathers mean human life in the womb, up to the instant of birth, is an exception?

The Constitution says Members of the House of Representatives are chosen by “the People of the several States”.  Did the Founding Fathers mean corporations and moguls from one State can spend unlimited money to influence elections in other States?

The Constitution says Congress shall have power to declare war.  Did the Founding Fathers mean Presidents have the authority to wage undeclared wars in Vietnam and the Middle East?

The Constitution (the First Amendment) prohibits Congress from making any law that abridges freedom of speech or the press.  Did the Founding Fathers mean Congress can create laws (such as Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act) that allow Big Tech to abridge freedom of speech and the press?

The Constitution (the Fourth Amendment) protects We the People from “unreasonable searches and seizures”.  Did the Founding Fathers mean to give the FBI an exemption?

The Constitution (the Tenth Amendment) says powers not delegated to the federal government by the Constitution are reserved to the States.  Did the Founding Fathers mean to give the federal government exemptions for the issues of education, health insurance, and gun control?

What are your answers to these questions?  If any of your answers is “no”, you know a Revolution is in progress.  Are you an advocate or an opponent?
