Federalist Papers 2020 #7 On Articles VI and VII and Some Twenty-First Century Thoughts

It is the year of our Lord Twenty Twenty and of the United States of America the Two Hundred Forty-four. The majority of our citizenry lives in some degree of affluency when compared to the rest of the world, yet at this time, We the People have seemingly lost our way. Where are the fervor and zeal of our Founding Fathers and those of our patriotic ancestors who established our Constitutional Republic as a bastion of Liberty? There must be some cause, some good reason, why our Founding Fathers and our patriotic ancestors were so eager for Liberty then, and now We the People are eager for the servitude (slavery) of Socialism. Therefore, I have determined to lay aside my Quill Pen and take Keyboard in hand to once again write in defense of our divinely inspired Constitution.

Our Founding Fathers were true Statesmen, whose only desire was for the good of our fledgling nation and the Liberty and Freedom of We the People. It is true they had loyalty to their several States, but they had no “Party” loyalties because political parties only emerged during the administration of President George Washington. He is the only President in our history not to belong to or have allegiance to a political party.

In Federalist Paper 2020 #1, the six purposes We the People had for establishing our Constitutional Republic were covered as stated in the Preamble. In Federalist Paper 2020 #2, Article I on the Legislature was covered. In Federalist Paper 2020 #3, Article II on the Executive, the President, and the possible effects of the XXV Amendment on the 2020 Election Cycle was covered. In Federalist Paper 2020 #4, Article III on Judicial Power, the Supreme Court, and our Judeo-Christian Heritage was covered. In Federalist Paper 2020 #5, Article IV on a More Perfect Union was covered. In Federalist Paper 2020 #6, Article V on Amendments was covered.

We the People need to consider the last two Articles of our Constitution — Article VI and VII. The first of these Articles concerns prior debts of the several States and the Confederation prior to the adoption of the new Constitution. These debts would be honored by the new United States. Article VI also established the new Constitution as the supreme law of the land and that our elected representatives would serve in office bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support the Constitution.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

It is also important to note that “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

Article VII. Ratification

“The Ratification of the Conventions of nine States, shall be sufficient for the Establishment of this Constitution between the States so ratifying the Same.” New Hampshire became the ninth state to accept the Constitution on 21 June 1788, which officially ended government under the Articles of Confederation and established our Constitutional Republic. Some States determined they would not ratify the Constitution without a Bill of Rights for We the People. This Bill of Rights, the first ten Amendments to the Constitution, was ratified 15 December 1791.

Some Twenty-First Century Thoughts

On 5 January 2011, the 112th Congress was sworn in and John Boehner (R, OH) became Speaker of the House. On 6 January, the Speaker scheduled the reading of the “revised” Constitution (our 1787 Constitution, as amended), in its entirety, on the floor of the House with the Members participating in the reading. Perhaps it should be read monthly. It would be 90 minutes well spent and perhaps keep our elected Representatives on track as they go about We the People’s business.

Some on the Left denigrated this reading for various reasons. Some Representatives, on the Left, even boycotted the reading. One Representative, Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the previous Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, criticized it by saying, “They are reading it like a sacred text…” Mr. Nadler, many Americans do regard our Constitution as a “sacred text.”

Would anyone disagree that the Constitution is a text? After all, it is a written document delimiting (setting the boundaries) the powers granted to the Federal Government by We the People. So the rub seems to be if it is “sacred.” Webster defines sacred as: 1. dedicated or set apart for the service or worship of deity; 2. devoted exclusively to one service or use (as of a person or purpose).

Our Constitution is certainly “devoted exclusively to one service or use” which is to establish a Republic of, by and for the people where our elected representatives are the servants of We the People, rather than our rulers. So my fellow citizens, it would seem that Webster would agree that the Constitution can be described as a “sacred text.”

However, it must be remembered that just because something is sacred does not make it perfect. The provisions within Article V on slavery to ensure the South’s ratification and allowing for a Constitutional Convention, and the Amendments establishing and repealing Prohibition are proof enough of that. But it can still be sacred — or at least sacrosanct.

May every American find a special place in their heart for this sacred text, our divinely inspired Constitution, and the Republic which it established. May every American find the time to READ and STUDY this sacred text, our Constitution, so that We the People might hold our elected representatives, our servants, accountable for their actions and the laws they enact. May we do this so We the People might continue as the Preamble states to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” May we do this so the Rights contained in the first Ten Amendments, our Bill of Rights, might NOT be infringed upon by our servants, our elected representatives.

We the People, as individuals and as a nation, should also be very concerned with ALL those, within and without, including our elected and appointed representatives, who have trouble acknowledging our “sacred text” and its purpose. Can the motives of such individuals and/or groups be right or good for our Constitutional Republic or the Freedom We the People all hope to maintain and enjoy. Such motives cannot as the Preamble of that sacred text suggests “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

If the motives and actions of these individuals and groups are not in support of the delimited Federal Government contained in our divinely inspired Constitution and which established our Constitutional Republic what do their motives support?

Could it be that they support a Welfare Socialist State making government the ruler rather than the servant of We the People or the one world government movement, of George Sorus and his ilk, with their oligarchy as the ruler rather than We the People.

In these cases, their motives, efforts and actions to destroy our Constitutional Republic through legislative, executive, judicial or any other means, whether overt or covert, are treasonous. Article. III. Section. 3. of our Constitution, our sacred text reads, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.” (Emphasis added.)

We the People need to be aware of our enemies foreign and domestic, within and without, particularly those who sit in the chambers of Congress who profess progressive and socialist views. These elected representatives, in the House and Senate, who power has corrupted, their minions and fellow travelers and the perpetual unelected bureaucrats (The Swamp) who would enslave us by destroying our Constitutional Republic should be voted out of office or fired and never trusted with power again. They are self-appointed Political elites, whose only desire is to be part of an oligarchy of power where We the People would become their servants (slaves) in a Welfare Socialist State rather than the rulers of our Constitutional Republic.

We the People, each of us, need to take action!

  1. Each of us must read and study our sacred text, our divinely inspired Constitution and our Declaration of Independence. We the People’s Freedom does hang in the balance; and, if Freedom is lost in our Constitutional Republic, the United States of America, the light of liberty will be extinguished throughout the world.
  2. Each of us must then let our elected representatives know that we are watching and that We the People expect them to conform and limit their service to the six purposes stated in the Preamble of our Constitution.

Freedom and Liberty are very fragile. Once lost, they can only be restored through much contention and the shedding of much blood of the enslaved. Why? Because those in power have their friends in iniquity, who destroy righteous laws and deny the unalienable rights of man to Life, Liberty and Property and trample under foot the commandments of God to the end that they might perpetually retain their oligarchy of power. As our Fortieth President, Ronald Reagan, said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

“Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.”

May God Bless and Save the United States of America —
Our Constitutional Republic !
