Stevens County Assembly has a new website at: www.StevensCountyAssembly.com. Republic Assembly (RepublicAssembly.com) will continue to be an education website; will now focus more on National issues. Whereas, the new Stevens County Assembly website (www.StevensCountyAssembly.com) will be more Stevens County and Washington orientated.
In our era we have not a sufficient number of people that understand the truths and principles that our nation was founded on. People must understand what’s been lost and that our freedoms and liberties neither begin nor end with the constitution.
One of our major weaknesses today is, as a populous, we, for the most part, have no concept of the principles, circumstances and events that formed the constitution. Many a well-meaning person, to include many of our elected officials, will say they understand, but have really never done an in-depth study of this most important matter. Obviously, when you consider that and events of our day, politically speaking, the qualifications of our present leaders should come into question.
Woodrow Wilson and his fellow founders of the modern liberalism movement argued that we should live in an age of progression and government must be the engine of progress. This idea not only affects the way government operates, but also the freedoms and liberties of people.
Franklin Roosevelt added to natural rights, the idea of economic security. Government grew as a result, especially under Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon.
Under these new progressive doctrines the government grew quantitatively to be the largest single force in the land. This is far from what our forefathers originally envisioned for America.
The question has been asked of late, “Can the states make laws contrary to the American constitution?” Representatives from the states wrote and approved the constitution with all its guarantees, rights and liberties. One of the most pivotal facts presented in the text is the limit of the federal government’s powers. We have certainly allowed them to far exceed their lawful bounds. In essence, the constitution was written by the people and for the people. No state or federal person or office can lawfully write law contradicting the constitution. (See 14th Amend.)
If the state can write contradictory law, then the constitution was never the supreme law of the land and we were guaranteed nothing. No amount of over-philosophical talk or rhetoric can change that fact when you do an earnest study of our forefather’s writings, beliefs and considering again that our freedom neither begins nor ends with a document of any kind. Inalienable freedoms go back to the beginning from our Creator.
Consider this also: none of our liberties and freedoms mean anything at all if we don’t believe in them and claim them. Claiming them is more than just believing, it’s acting upon them and living them out which may require us to not consent to ideas and unlawful acts that are thrust down upon us.
There are many reasons why we lost our republic, although there are still a few elements of it here and there. There are, however, three main reasons that we must give our earnest attention to as follows:
Lack of participation, consent to seditious behavior and we took God off the throne of America and replaced Him with government. May I remind us all that no government has ever kept anyone’s freedom. Liberty comes from God and freedom from the exercise thereof.
Come and exercise your freedom as a community at the Stevens County Assembly.
