Teaching the Principles of Individual Liberty and Personal Responsibility
Lysander Spooner observed the Constitution either created the government we now exists or was powerless to prevent it. The Constitution has become a toothless tiger because it has failed to protect us from the abuse of power by our employees.
It has not failed us, we have failed to defend it. The Constitution is only as strong as the people's determination to be free. If the people want to be free they must take the responsibility to hold elected officials accountable. If they fail to do so, elected officials will continue to violate the Constitution without consequences.
The Constitution does not need to be amended as much as the people need to be amended. Unless the people enforce the rulebook we will continue living as slaves in the land that once was free.
As long as we allow it, Congress will continue passing legislation which will benefit their friends at the expense of their enemies.
Only a moral and virtuous people are capable of freedom and due to apathy, ignorance and neglect we gave squandered the gift of liberty which was purchased with the blood of our founding generation.
The problems is that whenever a government is created, the vast majority of the people become subjects of a ruling class. In any society where the people are unequal there will always be masters and slaves. Today the representatives of the financial elite write the laws and the rest of us our expected to comply and in the process we give our consent.
When God gave us liberty he also required us govern ourselves. Man can either govern himself or he can be ruled by a tyrant. George Washington is quoted as having said "Government is like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." He realized that if a government was not confined to its proper role it would become a tyrannical force which would destroy rather than defend the rights of the people.
