Do You Believe in the United States Constitution? Then Start Acting Like It.

Many Americans say they believe in the constitution, however the actions speak differently.

Take for example our federal elected officials. There is nowhere in the Constitution that states or hints that the President represents the people. Yet this is the consensus of the American public and voters which is also known as “conventional wisdom,” You tell a lie often enough and long enough the people will believe it. Dig hard and long in the constitution and you will not find it! The President represents the nation as a whole to other nations. The Presidential office is so guarded by the founding fathers that they only wanted a small group of Americans known as “electors” to nominate the person for that office. (Read the Federalist Papers No. 68) In other words, citizens are not to vote for the President!

The United States Senate is the same way. It is the “electors” chosen from the State legislator that are to pick the Senator to represent them in Congress. That’s correct—Senators do not represent the people of that state but they represent the State, government, in Congress so that the States have a voice in the federal government. But that was changed in 1913 with the passing of the 17th Amendment—an amendment that stripped away State’s rights in Congress. The founding fathers did not want this! States have no say in congress and we have a runaway congress to this day. So when you vote for your “so-called” senator, you are actually throwing away your vote, time and money to an individual that does not represent you but to “special interest” groups. Have you ever known an individual that has spoken to a Senator about the issues?

The Representatives are the people’s representation in Congress and the only one’s per the United States Constitution that the people are allowed to vote for in a federal office. In other words, the Representatives are the highest federal office that citizens can vote for.

So stop wasting your time, money and long lines to the voting booth to elect a person that does not represent you. If you don’t believe what I have written, then check in out for yourselves since you do believe in the Constitution.
