Who’s the Boss?
Posted by Keith Broaders on December 23, 2018
If you were the owner of a business and all of your employees took an oath that they would faithfully execute their job according conditions of a contract, what would you do when they repeatedly violated the terms of the contract?
Would you fire them or allow them or take them to court of law run by your employees?
The boss doesn’t need anyone’s permission to terminate the employment of employees who fail to do their jobs properly. Similarly, the U.S. Constitution does not give a panel of unelected lawyers the authority to determine what is and what is not Constitutional. That assignment belongs to the representatives of the people in the legislatures of the states.
I think that any competent employer would terminate any of his employees who violated the terms of their employment. We the people are the employer, and the men and women who hold public office have all taken an oath to honor those terms. As the employers, we have the responsibility to hold our state legislators accountable, and they in turn are responsible to hold our congressional representatives accountable.
With the ratification of the 17th Amendment that allowed for the direct election of Senators, the states legislatures lost their legitimate representation in the United States Senate and their ability to hold the Congress accountable. Our bicameral legislature now has both houses representing the best interests of the Wall Street bankers and corporations.They spend millions of dollars every two years to purchase seats in the Senate to be filled by their hand picked puppets.
The 17th Amendment has turned the federal government into a gigantic crime syndicate that masquerades as legitimate. Instead of writing laws to protect our lives, our liberty and our property, they write laws to regulate our lives and redistribute our wealth.
The representatives of the states wrote the Constitution and created a government that was supposed to protect the people’s rights, not to control people’s lives. The Constitution was written to govern the government, not the people!
The powers granted to the government of the united States were few and well defined, and the power and authority of the states were many and undefined. The states were to be servants of the people and the master over the central government.
An owner of a business who allows the employees to call the shots regarding their employment is a recipe for disaster. In order to prevent the abuse of power it is the people’s responsibility to demand that our employees follow the rules outlined in the Constitution. If we fail to do so, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
