Contrary to modern popular belief, the US Constitution isn’t the first document establishing the USA as a sovereign nation of free self-governed people, the Declaration of Independence is. In fact, the document that preceded the Declaration of 1776 is the Mayflower Compact (1620), the foundation for what appears in the Declaration establishing the USA as a free people and independent sovereign nation almost 250 years ago.

Text of the Mayflower Compact (1620)

“In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the grace of God, of Great Britaine, France and Ireland king, defender of the faith, etc. having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our king and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually in the presence of God and one of another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politick, for our better ordering and preservation.”

Due to increasing tyrannical abuses of power under British rule, our nation’s Founders adopted the Declaration of Independence from England on July 4, 1776, 156 years later. From that day on, the United States of America became a sovereign nation of free self-governed people, who would forever be the final arbiters of truth, justice, law, freedom, and sovereign security in preservation of themselves and all posterity.

Eleven years later in 1787, the Founders adopted the US Constitution forming and guaranteeing every State in the Union, a “republican form of government” obligated to uphold and defend the founding principles and values of the new free nation, based upon “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” (aka Natural Law)

The sole purpose of the US Constitution was stated in the preamble to the document…

“in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”

In order to gain support for the adoption of the Constitution, our Founders agreed to immediately take additional action to specifically limit the power and authority of the Federal government via a Bill of Rights on September 25, 1789, the reasoning once again explained in the preamble.

“The Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.”

The three founding documents combined, The Declaration, Constitution, and Bill of Rights, establish what has been referred to ever since, as the “Charters of Freedom.” Each document provides a specific measure of security for the American people to preserve freedom, liberty, justice, and prosperity for all lawful Citizens of the United States. Combined, they are the cornerstone of freedom forever.

However, in order for these historic documents to do their job, it requires a well-informed and active society forever vigilant in the protection, preservation, and enforcement of everything in these three documents.

The Bill of Rights is not an enumeration of The People’s Rights, which are far too numerous to ever number. Instead, the Bill of Rights is an enumeration of strict prohibitions of federal authority and power. They must be read within this proper context, or they are useless.

“The Constitution might never have been ratified if the framers hadn’t promised to add a Bill of Rights. The first ten amendments to the Constitution gave citizens more confidence in the new government and contain many of today’s Americans’ most valued freedoms.”

What First Amendment?

“Congress shall make no law” means that the only law-making branch of the Federal government, Congress, has no power or lawful authority whatsoever over the following subjects…

  • an establishment of religion
  • or prohibiting the free exercise thereof
  • or abridging the freedom of speech
  • or of the press
  • or the right of the people peaceably to assemble
  • and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

Today, the federal government is deeply engaged in violating all six protections in the First Amendment. The government has essentially attempted to establish itself as a religion opposing more than 70% of American Citizens who claim the Christian faith, with increasing attacks on Jews as well, including open attempts to “prohibit the free exercise thereof.”

They have prosecuted and jailed thousands of Citizens for simply speaking their political views in the public square, J6ers being the most blatant example, but they have done this to innocent Citizens for years. The ongoing witch-hunts trying to eliminate their political opponent Trump being yet another egregious example, where the government can say anything they want about Trump to manipulate public impressions of Trump, including proven lies, while they try to muzzle Trump’s ability to defend himself via a totally unconstitutional GAG ordered by a blatantly political Judge in New York.

Trump couldn’t possibly get a more politically motivated bias court or jury than the one he faces in New York right now. But mindless Trump-haters see no problem with direct violations of the Bill of Rights, so long as the abuse of power is aimed at someone they were dog whistle trained to hate.

But it isn’t just Trump… the extreme global Marxist left did the same thing to Sanders and Warren to make room for Obama puppet Joe in 2020. They have done the same to countless journalists either out of work or scared for their lives under tyrannical threat from the Obama regime in power. They have done it to more than a thousand J6 rally goers, while protecting their own street minions as they burn and loot cities across the country, referred to as “peaceful protests” by the left. And…they are even doing it to Robert Kennedy Jr. as he challenges the tyrannical regime as an “independent” candidate in 2024.

Indoctrinated children are taking over college campuses and whole cities shouting, “death to America” and “we are Hamas,” with total immunity from the laws they break. But anyone and anything “pro-American” is being hunted down by our weaponized government, as global criminals and terrorists are being imported and spread across the country in preparation for the “imminent attacks on US soil” that the same government is issuing warnings about daily.

The current federal government totally controls the press and all social media platforms, except Tik Tok, which is why the government is hellbent to eliminate the one public forum they can’t control, Tik Tok.

They have criminalized the right of the people to assemble and labeled the right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances, an “insurrection.” There’s nothing in the First Amendment that hasn’t been directly violated by the people currently in control of the federal government and their offenses are far worse than any of the offenses perpetrated by King George in the 1700s.

Which is why the Second Amendment exists…without which, there’s no means to protect any other rights at all…

“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,

the right of the people to keep (own) and bear (carry) Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Yep, the current government has taken aim at both militias and lawful private gun rights too, for equally obvious reasons. Nations all over the world have fallen under brutal communist and Marxist dictatorships for centuries, but not until after the citizenry was disarmed! Meanwhile, they spread nothing but threats of death and destruction across America in their ongoing foreign invasion of military age males from the worst places on earth.

What Bill of Rights?

If Amendment one and two can no longer be defended, tell me what else in the Bill of Rights can be? Nothing in the other eight amendments can be protected without protecting the first two, it’s just that simple.

Included in the Right of Free Speech is the most important form of free speech, the lawful secure voice of the legitimate eligible American voters. If our country cannot be governed by the people through free, fair, lawful, and transparent elections, then all that is left is street justice. That’s exactly what the current federal government is pushing for…all out war in our streets.

Left with no peaceful constitutional remedies, the people will sooner or later be pushed to war against their own government.

When everything in the Constitution and Bill of Rights fails, the people must return to their foundations of freedom in the Declaration.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

In other words, if the federal government is no longer restrained by its limited Constitutional authority, and the additional restrictions in the Bill of Rights, then it is no longer a faithful partner in that contract with the member States, or the American people, and it has no right to exist at all. Every penny sent to DC is “taxation without representation.”

The final arbiter isn’t any temporary occupant of the Oval Office, any Executive Branch Agency, the US Military, any legislator, or court, it’s the American people…so says our Founding documents.

The Founders had it all right…but the people have not been “forever vigilant” for over a hundred years now. As a result, the vast majority of Americans are now demoralized, depressed, and defeated. The framers had this part right too…

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”

Unfortunately, by the time the people have had enough, they will have already lost everything, including the means to right their own ship. Everything they tried to protect by keeping their head down and mouth shut, they will lose.

Freedom once lost, has never been regained in the history of mankind. The USA was the one exception in the world, and now, it appears the people will let it fall too…

Those who do not know history, are doomed to repeat history!
