The fastest way to learn the principles in my Basic Course in Law and Government is, of course, to make the small initial down payment by following the instructions in my July 7, 2011 Post followed by the diligent reading of all the Course Materials.
Once the Student has learned a few good arguments that prove the Constitution of September 17, 1787 to be an orphan document, which no President or member of Congress is bound to support, solutions to problems caused by an out of control government will greatly multiply.
The first problem to tackle is the claim of authority by those who claim the power to enforce the written laws. We know who, supposedly, is the most powerful man in the world—the man in the Office of President of the United States. My Students are knowledgeable enough not to claim the President of the United States as “my President,” but all local law enforcers do make the President of the United States “their President,” because they rightly sense he is the source of their power.
The President of the United States and the local law enforcer claim authority through the Constitution of the United States and we know that Constitution is limited to the territory owned by and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States of America. Local law enforcement is limited to the territory owned by and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States of America, because that is the only landowner that has consented to be governed by a local authority, provided those local laws do not impact the federal government.
Take the first step to a limited government, by confirming with local law enforcement its acceptance of the Constitution of the United States as supreme written authority.
