Our Dying Constitution — and How to Revive It
The usurpation of this power [to amend the Constitution] by 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 who occupy for a fleeting moment of history seats on the Supreme Court bench rather than by the enduring precepts of the Constitution. [emphasis added]Senator Ervin's perceptive observation illustrates that a vicious, climactic battle over the Constitution, the country, and the culture has been underway for many years — even though this front in America's Culture War is just becoming visible to many Americans. Reconstructionist (Humanistic) judges have been guilty of the "usurpation of power" to which Ervin refers, substituting Reconstructionists' "transitory personal notions" for the Constitutional text and Judeo-Christian/Constitutionalist foundations in interpreting our fundamental law. The Kagan nomination to the U. S. Supreme Court is another significant Reconstructionist blow at the Constitution.
Can YOU do anything about our dying Constitution? SHOULD you? ABSOLUTELY, YES! The recent surge of support for our revered fundamental law encourages battle-scarred veterans of this war, and sends forth the clarion call: We Americans have the MANDATE and the MUSCLE to fight for the Constitution, and we must be empowered with adequate and accurate knowledge to fight effectively to Revive the Constitution.
We also must have a plan of action to guide our battle. The Blackstone Institute and Eagle Forum's Court Watch have designed such a plan for the 2010 elections, and beyond — our "RTC ('Reviving the Constitution') Plan." With Congress coming home soon for summer recess, candidates will be everywhere. Use this opportunity to present the RTC Plan to candidates and incumbents, asking them if they will support all of it? none of it? parts of it (if so, which parts)? At the very least, your action will further the education of many segments of America concerning the necessity of Reviving our Constitution!
The foundation of the RTC Plan is education; the focus of the Plan is a set of specific actions involving the people and their representatives in governments across America. The Plan can be summarized as follows:
You, too, can arm yourself and help your fellow patriots to become armed with knowledge to Revive the Constitution! Available online or directly from the Blackstone Institute are educational weapons to start you on your mission, including:
