America, The Roman Empire, and The Constitution 

What do they have in common?

If we allow socialism and marxism to continue to grab power, we may end up like the Roman Empire.

When In Rome Do As The Romans Did Is A Recipe For Failure

Rome’s government experienced several transitions.  The Roman Republic was formed in 509BC and lasted several centuries. The end started when Ceaser became “dictator for life” and created the Roman Empire. For a long time, Rome was the most extensive and most robust empire known to man. There was a powerful government that provided a good life for many of its elite citizens. But there was no moral code. The leaders were selfish and afraid of the citizens. There was no plan to make things better for the people who lived in the Roman Empire. Only strategies about overcoming them and ruling the inhabitants while the leaders enjoyed all varieties of sin and evil. Eventually, Rome fell because its leaders were corrupt and without morals. Does that sound familiar?

The U.S. Constitution

The U.S. Constitution is a roadmap for America that has survived many attacks since ratification on September 17th, 1787. Arguably, this document has formed the most stable government in modern history. It is the basis for patriotism in our country.

The Bible As A Guide

While the Constitution is not a religious document, it does draw on a moral code that mirrors the Bible. There is a controversy about the number of Christians who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. But the debate is an argument about words. The Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 2:14 ESV, “Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers.”  Read this article in Britannica to see how divisive and nonsensical this argument is. It is an argument for scholars to debate, not for practical use for living. Notably, arguing about words is the go-to method for those who would usher in the demise of our country. The real issue is lost in the conversation, and the slanderous word becomes the topic of discussion. Want to talk about school grades? You’re a racist! Want to talk about safety in our country? You’re a racist! Want to talk about unprotected borders? You’re a racist! And the coverup goes on and on.

When In America Do As The Americans Do

Our country should not exchange its basic building blocks to accommodate other faiths or forms of government or conduct without foundation in morality and good faith. Instead, people of different religions and beliefs should work within our Constitution. If there is a change to be made, there is a process provided called Article 5

Our early founders and immigrants appreciated this because they knew what it was like to live under controlling churches and controlling forms of government. America was once known as the melting pot of the world. People from all over the world came to America for freedom and opportunity. I don’t recall hearing that phrase for a long time. 

What’s Changed

Some would like the world to believe we are racists, that America was built on slavery and racism. Even more concerning, those complaints and falsehoods come from within the United States, not from the outside. Much of the criticism is from those elected to serve and protect the country they hate. Yes, some would prefer that we live under Marxism, Socialism, or Communism. Not for our benefit but for theirs! How is that possible, you may ask. How can “We The People” change things?

 Here’s how:

  1. Voting is not just a right; it’s a duty. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 2020 voter turnout set a new record, but only 66.8% of registered voters voted. School board election turnout is much worse, according to the National School Boards Association
  2. Congress has failed America in too many ways to count. One of the primary responsibilities of Congress is to write laws that protect America and should have the best interest of Americans as the central theme. Instead, they want the courts to write law because most of our elected officials are failures at the job they were elected to do. “We The People” need to participate, communicate and vote!
  3. Presidents and Congress have allowed the courts to interpret the Constitution in ways the founders never meant. Interpretation of the law became based on feelings or left or right leanings. Justices and Judges need to be picked on their ability to interpret the Constitution. Instead, many believe they should be chosen by how liberal or conservative they are. These have become two of the most dangerous words in the application of the law. Either definition requires The Constitution to be interpreted based on feelings that have minimal, if anything, to do with what the law says. “We The People” need to participate, communicate and vote!

We The People” can change all of this by Voting and contacting our elected representatives, especially Congress. Visit this page if you need to find out how to call or email your representatives at all levels.
