Need more to read Constitution

Kudos to Mr. Edward Fisher Jr. of Houghton Lake (“Leave us, our guns alone”) and Mr. Dick Duprey, of Higgins Lake (“Focus should shift”). Hooray for their letters in the March 22 Resorter. At least a few people in this country are reading our Constitution! We need about 200,000,000 more people like them!

Our Constitution’s roots were in the Magna Carta in England, June 15, 1215. The Lords of England had problems keeping peace with common people (technically slaves) forcing the King to sign an agreement granting freedom and certain rights. But it took more than 572 years until our 2nd Continental Congress set a Convention May 25, 1787, in Philadelphia to form a new Constitution, guaranteeing the sovereign citizens of this country freedom and rights! Twelve states sent delegates. On Sept. 17, 1787, the required nine states ratified it, creating the “Republic of the United States of America.” I hope we can maintain it as a republic, but we are fast becoming a socialist state, with all the liberal crap happening in this country today. Socialist states soon turn into dictatorships, because they do not have a “book of rules” such as our Constitution, to protect “We the People” from greedy, powerhungry, self-serving politicians.

The first thing socialist governments do is take guns out of the hands of the people to protect the politicians. And they use every rotten trick available such as using impressionable school children for votes, as is happening right now with the “March for Our Lives” movement. Soon, everything is controlled by the self-proclaimed “ruling class” of socialist politicians. People like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Barak Obama, Harry Ried and the rest of the liberal pack believe we “common people” don’t have brains enough to manage our own lives (mostly Democrats, but including many Republicans), in government, schools and colleges.

There is just one gun law in this country; the Second Amendment to the Constitution. The very first gun law passed by any governing entity in the United States is unconstitutional. Simply read Article VI, Clause 2; it clearly states: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made, in pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.” Does any reader really have to look up “supreme” in a dictionary?

We “sovereign citizens” (”We the People” of the United States of America) are the government, and we hire and pay public servants to vote, or by appointment of other public servants, with approval of parts of Congress to operate our government in accordance to our book of rules, which is the Constitution for the United States of America! And they take an oath to defend, protect and preserve it! Read it! It is sixth grade English!
