Rights come from God, and the purpose of civil governments is to secure the rights God gave us.
Accordingly, WE THE PEOPLE ordained and established the Constitution for the United States of America wherein we created the federal government.
A "federal government" is an alliance of Sovereign States associated together in a "federation" with a national government to which is delegated supremacy over the States in specifically defined areas only.
These specifically defined areas are the "enumerated powers" WE delegated to the three branches of the national ("federal") government.
The States and The People retained all other powers.
The chart depicts the elegant simplicity of our Constitution; lists the few and defined powers WE delegated to the national government; shows how the powers WE delegated to the national government secure specific God given rights; and shows the retention of all other powers by the States and The People.
Our Constitution isn't broken! Our Constitution isn't outdated. The problem is that WE – who are "the natural guardians" of the Constitution - didn't bother to learn it. Since we didn't bother to learn it, we elected representatives who also hadn't bothered to learn it. And so everyone ignores it.
And we abandoned the religious and moral foundation of our Constitution.
It is our own ignorance of our existing Constitution, and the collapse of religion and morality which have brought us to the brink of destruction.
Our Constitution doesn't need "fixing"! The only Amendments we need are to repeal some of the previous Amendments we got deceived into approving.
WE THE PEOPLE need "fixing". Restoration of our religious and moral foundation and our Constitution is the Answer to Regeneration.
Let the Restoration begin with you. Share this Article. Print out the Chart. Study it. Flesh it out with your own personal readings of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bible. Then you can become a "guardian" of the Constitution.
