Advance the Teaparty Tradition
Without a Chaotic Con Con:
"Revive Our Constitution"!
This attempt is a major battle front in the Culture War engulfing America today. Reconstructionist judges have interpreted the Constitution according to their anti-constitutional [Humanistic] worldview. But the Constitution is founded on the Judeo-Christian worldview and cannot survive if ripped from this foundation. The "peculiar security" of the United States to which Jefferson referred is thus in imminent danger.
We Constitutionalists (advocates of the Judeo-Christian worldview) must understand this danger and how to respond. We must especially understand how to repel the Reconstructionists' argument that their approach is necessary if America is to have a "living Constitution." A superb Constitutionalist response was expressed thirty years ago by U. S. Senator Sam Ervin. Senator Ervin declared that, "The usurpation of . . . power by the Supreme Court Justices does not prove that the Constitution is a living instrument of government. On the contrary, it proves that the Constitution is dead, and that the people of our land are being ruled by the transitory personal notions of Justices . . . rather than by the enduring precepts of the Constitution."
Therefore, our challenge is to Revive our Constitution and curb the courts! And we must do so without resorting to a constitutional convention which appeals to some patriots but in reality is an untried device for which no standards or rules exist. Such a Con Con would invite chaos and more court cases allowing Reconstructionist judges the opportunity to morph America into a Humanistic society.
There are other tried and proven methods available to us Constitutionalists in the battle to Revive the Constitution and curb the courts — to carry out the Teaparty tradition of demanding that government observe the constitutional limits placed on its powers. Several of our most efficient, effective and well-tested tools are incorporated into "Eagle Forum Court Watch's Election Plan for 2010."
No principle is more foundational to American law and life than the principle of the "Supremacy of the Constitution": "The U. S. Constitution must be respected as America's supreme law, requiring that it be interpreted according to the original meaning of its words. Failure to adhere to this principle severely threatens the survival and health of America's entire legal system and our culture in general." This principle is the focus our Election Plan.
