Everyone knows Congress doesn’t work. Everyone knows and Congress admits it doesn’t read the federal laws it enacts and wouldn’t understand those laws if it did read them.
Congress is dysfunctional because it is using only 25% of the Organic Laws of the United States of America intended to guide it in its operations.
The four Organic Laws consist of the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777, the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 and the Constitution of September 17, 1787. Congress operates as if only the Constitution is valid law.
Congress ignores the Declaration of Independence because that revered document lists the tyrannies of governments Congress regularly commits. Congress refuses to recognize the right and duty of the people to throw off any government which commits such abuses.
Congress ignores the Articles of Confederation because it can claim the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 were replaced by the Constitution of the United States. Congress is right. The Articles of Confederation is law for free people and the people on federal territory are not free.
Congress ignores the Northwest Ordinance because everyone except my Students ignores the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787. Only my Students know there is an Organic Law called the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787.
Congress embraces the Constitution of the United States, as if, it supplies all the answers to all problems governmental and political in America. Congress, the Presidents, the federal courts and practically all of the American people believe all the hype that has been heaped upon a document which suffers from a multiple personality disorder. There is the Constitution which was ratified and established by the States of the United States of America to form a different and separate Union. Then there is the Constitution in which a President of the United States takes an oral oath or affirmation to “preserve, protect and defend.” Finally, there is a Constitution which requires, in accordance with Article VI Clause 3 of “this Constitution,” a written subscribed oath or affirmation “to support this Constitution.”
None of these three Constitutions contain any mention of the doctrines of the “balance of power” or “checks and balances,” Congress, however, imagines they exists so it can blithely enact Obamacare without thought of any written law restraints.
Congress knows no bounds, but, you can easily learn how Congress is limited to taxation and legislation within the United States, the territory owned by or subject to the exclusive legislative power of the United States of America. You can learn that and more when you enroll on a trial basis in my Basic Course in Law and Government for as little as $50, to get the details, contact me at email@example.com
