America’s Only Real Choice: Constitution or Tyranny?

It’s the Only Choice the Constitution of America Has Ever Given the People

“On every question of construction [of the Constitution] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or intended against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” — Thomas Jefferson

The corporate-government press has given US a myriad of choices. Democrat, Republican, Conservative, Liberal, Hawk, Dove, Pro-Life, Pro-Choice, Fathers, Mothers, Children, Best Interest, No Interest, Patriots, Terrorists, Values, No Values, Stupid, Not Stupid, Conspirators, Conspiracies, Theories, Divinities, etc., are merely labels to divide and divert the people from the only question that needs to be asked of America. Does America Live by the Constitution of America or do we exist in Tyranny? The answer to that Constitutional Question answers almost all the rest of the corporate-government label questions and allows the People to focus on what is Right, Just and the True America.

“A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy.” James Madison

The Father of the Constitution’s words and meanings are clear. Anything other than a Historical Background Constitution Interpretation is Tyranny. James Madison wanted to be sure future America could not say, “No one told me.” James Madison wanted to make sure future America knew exactly what Interpretation of the Constitution Must Be Used in All Government and Public Circumstances. Deviation from the Historical Background Constitution is Tyranny.

“Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.” James Madison

Virtually all other labels disappear when placed in the Constitution Vs Tyranny context. Most are solved, many of the rest become insignificant. Those that do not fall, others having been solved, in either the Constitution or Tyranny group will be much easier to identify and fix as America can work together in a non distracted concert.

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people, by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations.” James Madison

Instead the corporate-government press cranks out labels and pseudo-divisions of each individual aspect of violations of the Constitution, so that the ‘labeled’ will identify with an individual cause furthering isolation and distraction from the only answer that divides almost all the “labels”. Each individual taking their stance for their isolated cause, must decide if their stance is Constitutional or Tyrannical. There is no new or old situation, of which this author is aware, that is not easily settled by the Original Intent Interpretation of the Constitution.

“Despotism can only exist in darkness, and there are too many lights now in the political firmament to permit it to remain anywhere, as it has heretofore done, almost everywhere.” James Madison

What about this new label not envisioned by the Constitution. All labels have been envisioned by the Original Intent Constitution. There are no labels on the Original Intent Constitution so that it could and does apply to all situations, although the individual circumstance is not addressed, the general circumstance most assuredly is. Example: “More Smarter Tyrant”, Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) were not around during the Constitution and could not be envisioned. True, the Constitution does not address ICBMs. It addresses no isolated circumstance or label. But, it does address the attack of America by other nations by a tremendous power no individual could survive. England was most definitely an ICBM to them. For that one nation would have destroyed America in it’s entirety. They were in the midst of attack by England as they wrote the Constitution. There is ample reference on America’s response to attack by any individual or any tremendous power. The same is true in all aspects of government actions. There is only one Constitutional answer, all other answers are tyranny.

“The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse.” James Madison

There is no liberal, conservative, or national media. There is only the Corporate Media, barring a few small isolated instances. Do you think corporate media is going to publish anything harmful to corporate media, upset the apple cart, or stop feeding at the trough? The public has had daily bombardments of the “liberal” media by the media, is that not correct? It’s the liberals. It’s everyone. It’s anyone except corporate-government presses. And who told you? Laugh Out Loud, the Corporate Press.

“The circulation of confidence is better than the circulation of money.” James Madison

It’s not liberals and conservatives. It’s corporations and tyranny. As long as Americans place the labels of individual circumstance, without regard to Constitutionality, on themselves, tyranny will reign.

“Wherever there is interest and power to do wrong, wrong will generally be done.” James Madison

“In questions of power…let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” –Thomas Jefferson: Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

“Whenever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.” –Thomas Jefferson: Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.  Jury Nullification – The last defense of the US people in its fascist courts.  See also, ‘Yellow Fringed Flag Courts’.

Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed.

I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces?”

Wake Up and Work Strikes are needed  to set US free.  Afterward, we can commence with Real Constitutional trials and accountability.

    FAVORITE JEFFERSON QUOTES – Why historical background interpretation is needed – It explains perfectly why one doesn’t go entirely by text. The text meaning is explained very clearly

    REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT

    =The Constitution=

    “Aware of the tendency of power to degenerate into abuse, the
    worthies of our country have secured its independence by the
    establishment of a Constitution and form of government for our
    nation, calculated to prevent as well as to correct abuse.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Washington Tammany Society, 1809.

    “[The purpose of a written constitution is] to bind up the several
    branches of government by certain laws, which, when they
    transgress, their acts shall become nullities; to render
    unnecessary an appeal to the people, or in other words a rebellion, on every infraction of their rights, on the peril that their
    acquiescence shall be construed into an intention to surrender
    those rights.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782. Q.XIII

    “I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this
    ground: That “all powers not delegated to the United States, by
    the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are
    reserved to the States or to the people.” [10th Amendment]
    To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.” –Thomas Jefferson: National Bank Opinion, 1791.

    “The foundation on which all [our State constitutions] are built
    is the natural equality of man, the denial of every pre-eminence
    but that annexed to legal office and particularly the denial of a
    pre-eminence by birth.” –Thomas Jefferson to George Washington, 1784.

    “The principles of our Constitution are wisely opposed to all
    perpetuations of power, and to every practice which may lead to
    hereditary establishments.” –Thomas Jefferson: Reply to Address,1809.

    “Though written constitutions may be violated in moments of
    passion or delusion, yet they furnish a text to which those who
    are watchful may again rally and recall the people. They fix,
    too, for the people the principles of their political creed.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Priestley, 1802.

    “Whenever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.” –Thomas Jefferson: Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

    “It [is] inconsistent with the principles of civil liberty, and contrary
    to the natural rights of the other members of the society, that any
    body of men therein should have authority to enlarge their own
    powers… without restraint.” –Thomas Jefferson: Virginia Allowance
    Bill, 1778.

    “The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as
    are injurious to others.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782.

    “Laws provide against injury from others, but not from
    ourselves.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Religion, 1776?

    “In questions of power…let no more be heard of confidence in
    man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the
    Constitution.” –Thomas Jefferson: Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

    “Confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism. Free
    government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: Draft, Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

    “It is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited
    constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust
    with power. Our Constitution has accordingly fixed the
    limits to which, and no further, our confidence may go.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: Draft, Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

    “Is confidence or discretion, or is STRICT LIMIT, the principle
    of our Constitution?” –Thomas Jefferson to Jedidiah Morse, 1822.

    “Leave no authority existing not responsible to the people.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Isaac H. Tiffany, 1816.

    “The elective franchise, if guarded as the ark of our safety, will
    peaceably dissipate all combinations to subvert a Constitution,
    dictated by the wisdom, and resting on the will of the people.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Waring, 1801.

    “Unless the mass retains sufficient control over those entrusted
    with the powers of their government, these will be perverted to
    their own oppression, and to the perpetuation of wealth and power
    in the individuals and their families selected for the trust.
    Whether our Constitution has hit on the exact degree of control
    necessary, is yet under experiment.” –Thomas Jefferson to M.
    van der Kemp, 1812.

    “I disapproved from the first moment… the want of a bill of
    rights [in the new Constitution] to guard liberty against the
    legislative as well as the executive branches of the government.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Francis Hopkinson, 1789.

    “A bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every
    government on earth, general or particular; and what no just
    government should refuse, or rest on inferences.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to James Madison, 1787.

    “A bill of rights [will] guard liberty against the legislative as
    well as the executive branches of the government.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to Francis Hopkinson, 1789.

    “In the arguments in favor of a declaration of rights, one which
    has great weight with me [is] the legal check which it puts into
    the hands of the judiciary.” –Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 1789.

    “By a declaration of rights, I mean one which shall stipulate
    freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of commerce
    against monopolies, trial by juries in all cases, no suspensions
    of the habeas corpus, no standing armies. These are fetters
    against doing evil which no honest government should decline.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Alexander Donald, 1788.

    “I sincerely wish we could see our government so secured as to
    depend less on the character of the person in whose hands it is
    trusted. Bad men will sometimes get in and with such an immense patronage may make great progress in corrupting the public mind and principles. This is a subject with which wisdom and patriotism should be occupied.” –Thomas Jefferson to Moses
    Robinson, 1801.

    =Amendments to the Constitution=

    “Whatever be the Constitution, great care must be taken to provide a mode of amendment when experience or change of circumstances shall have manifested that any part of it is unadapted to the good of the nation.” –Thomas Jefferson to A. Coray, 1823.

    “Nothing is more likely than that [the] enumeration of powers is
    defective. This is the ordinary case of all human works. Let us
    then go on perfecting it by adding by way of amendment to the
    Constitution those powers which time and trial show are still
    wanting.” –Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Nicholas, 1803.

    “We have always a right to correct ancient errors, and to establish
    what is more conformable to reason and convenience.” — Thomas
    Jefferson to James Madison, 1801.

    “I willingly acquiesce in the institutions of my country, perfect
    or imperfect; and think it a duty to leave their modifications to
    those who are to live under them, and are to participate of the
    good or evil they may produce. The present generation has the
    same right of self-government which the past one has exercised
    for itself.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Hampden Pleasants, 1824.

    “The precept is wise which directs us to try all things, and hold
    fast that which is good.” –Thomas Jefferson to William Drayton, 1788.

    “Let us go on perfecting the Constitution by adding, by way of
    amendment, those forms which time and trial show are still
    wanting.” –Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Nicholas, 1803.

    “The real friends of the Constitution in its federal form, if they
    wish it to be immortal, should be attentive, by amendments, to
    make it keep pace with the advance of the age in science and
    experience. Instead of this, the European governments have
    resisted reformation, until the people, seeing no other resource,
    undertake it themselves by force, their only weapon, and work it
    out through blood, desolation and long-continued anarchy.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Robert J. Garnett, 1824.

    “Our children will be as wise as we are and will establish in the
    fulness of time those things not yet ripe for establishment.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1810.

    “Can one generation bind another and all others in succession
    forever? I think not. The Creator has made the earth for the
    living, not for the dead. Rights and powers can only belong to
    persons, not to things, not to mere matter unendowed with will.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to John Cartwright, 1824.

    “I am certainly not an advocate for frequent and untried changes
    in laws and constitutions, I think moderate imperfections had
    better be borne with; because, when once known, we accommodate ourselves to them and find practical means of correcting their ill effects. But I know, also, that laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times.” –Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816.

    “We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which
    fitted him when a boy, as civilized society to remain ever under
    the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.” –Thomas Jefferson to
    Samuel Kercheval, 1816.

    “It is more honorable to repair a wrong than to persist in it.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: Address to Cherokee Nation, 1806.

    “Happily for us, that when we find our constitutions defective
    and insufficient to secure the happiness of our people, we can
    assemble with all the coolness of philosophers, and set them to
    rights, while every other nation on earth must have recourse to
    arms to amend or to restore their constitutions.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to C. W. F. Dumas, 1787.

    =Interpretation=

    “Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written
    Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Nicholas, 1803.

    “The true key for the construction of everything doubtful in a law,
    is the intention of the law givers. This is most safely gathered
    from the words, but may be sought also in extraneous circumstances,provided they do not contradict the express words of the law.” –Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 1808.

    “On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the
    time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit
    manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning
    may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform
    to the probable one in which it was passed.” –Thomas Jefferson
    to William Johnson, 1823

    “I had rather ask an enlargement of power from the nation, where
    it is found necessary, than to assume it by a construction which
    would make our powers boundless.” –Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Nicholas, 1803.

    =Separation of Powers: Federal and State=

    “I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this
    ground: That “all powers not delegated to the United States by the
    Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to
    the States or to the people.” [X Amendment] To take a single step
    beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers
    of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power,
    no longer susceptible of any definition.” –Thomas Jefferson:
    National Bank Opinion, 1791.

    “The true barriers of our liberty are our State governments; and
    the wisest conservative power ever contrived by man, is that of
    which our Revolution and present government found us possessed.” –Thomas Jefferson to A. L. C. Destutt de Tracy, 1811.

    “I have always thought that where the line of demarcation between the powers of the General and the State governments was doubtfully or indistinctly drawn, it would be prudent and praiseworthy in both parties, never to approach it but under the most urgent necessity.” –Thomas Jefferson to Joseph C. Cabell, 1814.

    “The States should be left to do whatever acts they can do as well
    as the General Government.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Harvie,
    1790.

    “The way to have good and safe government, is not to trust it all
    to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to every one
    exactly the function he is competent to. Let the National
    Government be entrusted with the defense of the nation and its
    foreign and federal relations; the State governments with the
    civil rights, laws, police, and administration of what concerns
    the State generally; the counties with the local concerns of the
    counties, and each ward direct the interests within itself. It
    is by dividing and subdividing these republics from the great
    national one down through all its subordinations, until it ends
    in the administration of every man’s farm by himself; by placing
    under every one what his own eye may superintend, that all will
    be done for the best.” –Thomas Jefferson to Joseph C. Cabell, 1816.

    “An elective despotism was not the government we fought for, but
    one which should not only be founded on true free principles,
    but in which the powers of government should be so divided and
    balanced among general bodies of magistracy, as that no one could transcend their legal limits without being effectually checked and restrained by the others.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia,
    1782.

    “What has destroyed liberty and the rights of man in every
    government which has ever existed under the sun? The generalizing and concentrating all cares and powers into one body, no matter
    whether of the autocrats of Russia or France, or of the
    aristocrats of a Venetian Senate.” –Thomas Jefferson to Joseph C. Cabell, 1816.

    “When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great
    things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power,
    it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on
    another, and will become as venal and oppressive as the
    government from which we separated.” –Thomas Jefferson to
    Charles Hammond, 1821.

    “The concentrating [all the powers of government, legislative,
    executive and judiciary] in the same hands is precisely the
    definition of despotic government. It will be no alleviation that
    these powers will be exercised by a plurality of hands, and not by
    a single one.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782.

    “One precedent in favor of power is stronger than an hundred
    against it.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782.

    “Where powers are assumed which have not been delegated, a
    nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.” –Thomas
    Jefferson: Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

    “[If] it [were] assumed that the general government has a right to
    exercise all powers which may be for the ‘general welfare,’ that
    [would include] all the legitimate powers of government, since no
    government has a legitimate right to do what is not for the
    welfare of the governed.” –Thomas Jefferson to George Washington,
    1792.

    “I do verily believe that..a single, consolidated government would
    become the most corrupt government on the earth.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to Gideon Granger, 1800.

    “It is a happy circumstance in human affairs that evils which are
    not cured in one way will cure themselves in some other.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Sinclair, 1791.

    “On every unauthoritative exercise of power by the legislature
    must the people rise in rebellion or their silence be construed
    into a surrender of that power to them? If so, how many
    rebellions should we have had already?” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782.

    “The peculiar happiness of our blessed system is that in
    differences of opinion between these different sets of servants,
    the appeal is to neither, but to their employers peaceably
    assembled by their representatives in convention. This is more
    rational than the jus fortioris, or the canon’s mouth, the ultima
    et sola ratio regum.” –Thomas Jefferson to Spencer Roane, 1821.

    =Separation of Powers in the Federal Branches=

    “If the three powers maintain their mutual independence on each
    other our Government may last long, but not so if either can
    assume the authorities of the other.” –Thomas Jefferson to William Charles Jarvis, 1820.

    “The interference of the Executive can rarely be proper where that of the Judiciary is so.” –Thomas Jefferson to George Hammond,
    1793.

    “Mankind soon learn to make interested uses of every right and
    power which they possess or may assume. The public money and public liberty, intended to have been deposited with three
    branches of magistracy but found inadvertently to be in the hands
    of one only, will soon be discovered to be sources of wealth and
    dominion to those who hold them; distinguished, too, by this
    tempting circumstance: that they are the instrument as well as the
    object of acquisition. With money we will get men, said Caesar,
    and with men we will get money.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on
    Virginia, 1782.

    “It is the old practice of despots to use a part of the people to
    keep the rest in order; and those who have once got an ascendency and possessed themselves of all the resources of the nation, their revenues and offices, have immense means for retaining their advantages.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, 1798.

    =Elective Government=

    “Elective government is…the best permanent corrective of the
    errors or abuses of those entrusted with power.” –Thomas
    Jefferson: Reply to Address, 1801.

    “The Legislative and Executive branches may sometimes err, but
    elections and dependence will bring them to rights.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to Archibald Thweat, 1821.

    “To insure the safety of the public liberty, its depository should
    be subject to be changed with the greatest ease possible, and
    without suspending or disturbing for a moment the movements of
    the machine of government.” –Thomas Jefferson to A. L. C.
    Destutt de Tracy, 1811.

    “If our fellow citizens… will sacrifice favoritism towards men
    for the preservation of principle, we may hope that no divisions
    will again endanger a degeneracy in our government. –Thomas
    Jefferson to Richard M. Johnson, 1808.

    “The frequent recurrence of this chastening operation [of
    elections] can alone restrain the propensity of governments to
    enlarge expense beyond income.” –Thomas Jefferson to Albert
    Gallatin, 1820.

    “[It is] by their votes the people exercise their sovereignty.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: written note in Montesquieu’s Spirit of the
    Laws.

    “Experience [has] shown that, even under the best forms [of
    government], those entrusted with power have, in time and by
    slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” –Thomas Jefferson:
    Diffusion of Knowledge Bill, 1779.

    “Should things go wrong at any time, the people will set them to
    rights by the peaceable exercise of their elective rights.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Nicholas, 1806.

    “The elective franchise, if guarded as the ark of our safety, will
    peaceably dissipate all combinations to subvert a Constitution,
    dictated by the wisdom, and resting on the will of the people.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Waring, 1801.

    “I think the best remedy is exactly that provided by all our
    constitutions: to leave to the citizens the free election and
    separation of the aristoi from the pseudo-aristoi, of the wheat
    from the chaff. In general they will elect the real good and
    wise. In some instances wealth may corrupt and birth blind them,
    but not in sufficient degree to endanger the society.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to John Adams, 1813.

    “It suffices for us if the moral and physical condition of our own
    citizens qualifies them to select the able and good for the
    direction of their government, with a recurrence of elections at
    such short periods as will enable them to displace an unfaithful
    servant before the mischief he mediates may be irremediable.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1813.

    “A jealous care of the right of election by the people–a mild and
    safe corrective of abuses which are lopped by the sword of
    revolution where peaceable remedies are unprovided–I deem [one of] the essential principles of our Government.” –Thomas
    Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801.

    “In case of an abuse of the delegated powers, the members of the
    General Government, being chosen by the people, a change by the people would be the constitutional remedy.” –Thomas Jefferson:
    Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

    “I am for responsibilities at short periods, seeing neither reason
    nor safety in making public functionaries independent of the
    nation for life, or even for long terms of years.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to James Martin, 1813.

    “In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life if secured
    against all liability to account.” –Thomas Jefferson to A. Coray,
    1823.

    “I think it is a duty in those entrusted with the administration
    of their affairs to conform themselves to the decided choice of
    their constituents.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, 1785.

    “I love to see honest and honorable men at the helm, men who will not bend their politics to their purses nor pursue measures by
    which they may profit and then profit by their measures.” –Thomas Jefferson to Edward Rutledge, 1796.

    “An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens… Power is not alluring to pure minds and is not with them the primary principle of contest.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to John Melish, 1813.

    “Whenever a man has cast a longing eye on [offices] a rottenness begins in his conduct.” –Thomas Jefferson to Tench Coxe, 1799.

    “Men of high learning and abilities are few in every country; and
    by taking in those who are not so, the able part of the body have
    their hands tied by the unable.” –Thomas Jefferson to Archibald
    Stewart, 1791.

    “That there should be public functionaries independent of the
    nation, whatever may be their demerit, is a solecism in a republic
    of the first order of absurdity and inconsistency.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to William T. Barry, 1822.

    “In a free country, every power is dangerous which is not bound
    up by general rules.” –Thomas Jefferson to Philip Mazzei, 1785.

    “It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men
    of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights.
    Confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism. Free
    government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: Draft, Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

    =Legislative Branch=

    “Our legislators are not sufficiently apprised of the rightful
    limits of their power: that their true office is to declare and
    enforce only our natural rights and duties and to take none of
    them from us. No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws
    ought to restrain him; every man is under the natural duty of
    contributing to the necessities of the society, and this is all
    the laws should enforce on him.” –Thomas Jefferson to Francis
    Gilmer, 1816.

    “The representatives of the people in Congress are alone competent to judge of the general disposition of the people, and to what precise point of reformation they are ready to go.” –Thomas Jefferson to Mr. Rutherford, 1792.

    “A sound spirit of legislation,… banishing all arbitrary and
    unnecessary restraint on individual action, shall leave us free to
    do whatever does not violate the equal rights of another.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: Report for the University of Virginia, 1818.

    “To special legislation we are generally averse lest a principle
    of favoritism should creep in and pervert that of equal rights.
    It has, however, been done on some occasions where a special
    national advantage has been expected to overweigh that of
    adherence to the general rule.” –Thomas Jefferson to George
    Flower, 1817.

    “If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be
    otherwise in a body to which the people send one hundred and
    fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield
    nothing, and talk by the hour?” –Thomas Jefferson: Autobiography,
    1821.

    “A forty years’ experience of popular assemblies has taught me
    that you must give them time for every step you take. If too hard
    pushed, they balk, and the machine retrogrades.” –Thomas
    Jefferson to Joel Barlow, 1807.

    “It is not only vain, but wicked in a legislator to frame laws in
    opposition to the laws of nature, and to arm them with the terrors
    of death. This is truly creating crimes in order to punish them.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Crimes Bill, 1779.

    “History has informed us that bodies of men as well as individuals
    are susceptible of the spirit of tyranny.” –Thomas Jefferson:
    Rights of British America, 1774.

    “When the representative body have lost the confidence of their
    constituents, when they have notoriously made sale of their most
    valuable rights, when they have assumed to themselves powers
    which the people never put into their hands, then, indeed, their
    continuing in office becomes dangerous to the State, and calls
    for an exercise of the power of dissolution.” –Thomas Jefferson:
    Rights of British America, 1774.

    “The purpose of establishing different houses of legislation is
    to introduce the influence of different interests or different
    principles.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782.

    “I consider… the republican as one more willing to trust the
    legislature [than the Executive] as a broader representation of
    the people and a safer deposit of power for many reasons.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to John Dickinson, 1801.

    “A representative government, responsible at short intervals of
    election… produces the greatest sum of happiness to mankind.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: Reply to Vermont Legislature, 1807.

    =Executive Branch=

    “Responsibility weighs with its heaviest force on a single head.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816.

    “To inform the minds of the people, and to follow their will, is
    the chief duty of those placed at their head.” –Thomas Jefferson
    to C. W. F. Dumas, 1787.

    “No ground of support for the Executive will ever be so sure as a
    complete knowledge of their proceedings by the people; and it is
    only in cases where the public good would be injured, and
    BECAUSE it would be injured, that proceedings should be secret.
    In such cases it is the duty of the Executive to sacrifice their
    personal interest (which would be promoted by publicity) to the
    public interest.” –Thomas Jefferson to George Washington, 1793.

    “On every question the lawyers are about equally divided, and were we to act but in cases where no contrary opinion of a lawyer can be had, we should never act.” –Thomas Jefferson to Albert
    Gallatin, 1798.

    “It is not wisdom alone but public confidence in that wisdom
    which can support an administration.” –Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1824.

    “Let nothing be spared of either reason or passion to preserve the public confidence entire as the only rock of our safety.” –Thomas Jefferson to Caesar Rodney, 1810.

    =Judicial Branch=

    “The dignity and stability of government in all its branches, the
    morals of the people and every blessing of society depend so much upon an upright and skillful administration of justice, that the judicial power ought to be distinct from both the legislative and executive and independent upon both, that so it may be a check upon both, as both should be checks upon that.” –Thomas Jefferson to George Wythe, 1776.

    “The great object of my fear is the Federal Judiciary. That body,
    like gravity, ever acting with noiseless foot and unalarming
    advance, gaining ground step by step and holding what it gains, is engulfing insidiously the special governments into the jaws of
    that which feeds them.” –Thomas Jefferson to Spencer Roane, 1821.

    “A judiciary independent of a king or executive alone is a good
    thing; but independence of the will of the nation is a solecism,
    at least in a republican government.” –Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Ritchie, 1820.

    “It is a misnomer to call a government republican in which a
    branch of the supreme power is independent of the nation.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to John Hampden Pleasants, 1821.

    Pretty nice post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to mention that I’ve really loved browsing your weblog posts. After all I will be subscribing in your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!

    • Ed Ward MD Says:

      Thanks for the comment. Since I’m heavily censored on all the government’s search engines and the predominately covert op ‘truth’ sites, outside of rense.com and that is only for a very limited time, although has reposted several of my articles several timess, that is about the only way to find me. To see even a partial listing of my articles, one has to go to the end of my ‘single notation of my website’ on a search of “Ed Ward, MD” (the easiest way to find many of my articles is to go to my wordpress website) to ‘In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the already displayed”. Otherwise, if one does not take the single reference to my wordpress site, you only get listings a few of my articles at other sites.

      As for more, I’m on break for a while. I’ve documented proven US treason, fascism, murder, and tyranny multiple times on my site. Until the herd starts to wake up with boycotts and work strikes for impeachment and indictment of the entire US government in real Constitutional trials with the needed accountability. I tire of moving on to the next atrocity, while the real criminals rake in their blood money, fame and ‘public adoration’.

      Best – you and all of US need it as we continue to let murderous scumbags rule, bleed and destroy US.and the entire planet.

      Dr. Ed
