The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions: Guideposts of Limited Government

For true change to take place, Americans must once again conceive of their history as a struggle to create and maintain real freedom. Part of that reconceptualization would entail making a place for the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions in the pantheon of American charters. The resolutions articulate the fundamental principles of our government in an eloquent yet logical manner; in their import, they rank second only to the Constitution.

Secession, Sovereignty, and Salvation: Jefferson Lives!

We are a Rule of Law nation, born of the Enlightenment. We formed our federal government to work at the pleasure of Rule of Law States. We must remind ourselves (and the neo-federalists) that these laws were devised to protect a Sovereign People — by prohibiting the rule of unscrupulous men.

Ignorance + Depravity → Slavery + Ruin

“But still the people themselves must be the chief support of liberty.

But if ignorance and depravity should prevail, they will inevitably lead to slavery and ruin.” — Oliver Ellsworth (at the Connecticut ratifying convention, 1788) Continue reading

Activists Go to Court Over Potential ConCon

They are seeking a judgment that would basically keep out the insiders, that is elected officials, lobbyists and other political players from serving as constitutional delegates. This makes some sense when you consider their rationale — “we can’t allow those who the Constitution is meant to govern control all pathways to constitutional change.” Continue reading
