September 17, 2010 by Chip Wood
Do You Really Know The Constitution?
Today is Constitution Day — a day specifically designated by an Act of Congress when Americans are supposed to honor the remarkable document that created our system of government. The date was chosen because the Constitution was approved at the original Constitutional Convention on Sept. 17, 1787.
The act that created Constitution Day mandates that all publicly-funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day. Let’s see how well the schools have done their job.
Ask a recent high school or college graduate to take the following brief quiz. I’ll be interested to hear how many of the 20 questions he or she answers correctly.
And be sure to take the quiz yourself. Even if you score 100 percent, it’s good to be reminded of some of the fundamental principles upon which our country was founded. The quiz was compiled by an old friend, John McManus, who is president of the John Birch Society. Thanks, John, for permission to share this with my readers today.
1. Has the Constitution always guided our country?
2. What are the three branches of government named in the Constitution?
3. Does the Constitution allow the Supreme Court to make law?
4. Does the Constitution empower the President to make law?
5. Does the Constitution give the Federal government any power in the field of education?
6. Where in the Constitution is there authorization to dispense foreign aid?
7. Did the Constitution give the Federal government power to create a bank?
8. Can the provisions of a treaty supersede the Constitution?
9. Does the Constitution allow a President to take the nation into war?
10. Can you name any of the four crimes mentioned in the Constitution?
11. Should the Bill of Rights be considered part of the original Constitution?
12. According to the Constitution, how can a President and other national officers be removed from office?
13. How many amendments have been added to the Constitution?
14. How is an amendment added to the Constitution?
15. Does the Constitution say anything about illegal immigration?
16. Is the term of a President limited by the Constitution?
17. Which part of the Federal government holds “the power of the purse”?
18. Does the Constitution provide a method for expelling a member of Congress?
19. How many times is the word “democracy” mentioned in the Constitution?
20. Does the Bill of Rights grant the people free speech, freedom of the press, the right to possess a weapon, etc?
It wasn’t as easy as you thought it would be, was it? Here are the answers at the link.

Wyoming: Any agent of the U.S. who “enforces or attempts to enforce” federal gun rules on a “personal firearm” faces conviction.

Wyoming has joined a growing list of states with self-declared exemptions from federal gun regulation of weapons made, bought and used inside state borders – but lawmakers in the Cowboy State have taken the issue one step further, adopting significant penalties for federal agents attempting to enforce Washington’s rules.

According to a law signed into effect yesterday by Democratic Gov. Dave Freudenthal, any agent of the U.S. who “enforces or attempts to enforce” federal gun rules on a “personal firearm” in Wyoming faces a felony conviction and a penalty of up to two years in prison and up to $2,000 in fines.

WND reported just days ago when Utah became the third state, joining Montana and Tennessee, to adopt an exemption from federal regulations for weapons built, sold and kept within state borders.

A lawsuit is pending over the Montana law, which was the first to go into effect.

Raising the bar for Nullification

Amendment X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Around the country, twenty two states are currently considering a bill known as the “Firearms Freedom Act.” This bill declares that guns, accessories, and ammunition made within a state, sold within that state and kept in that state are not subject to federal laws or regulations under the “Interstate Commerce Clause” of the Constitution.


Supporters of such legislation point to laws passed by other states that have effectively nullified federal laws around the country. Fourteen states have now defied federal laws on marijuana. And, two dozen states have refused to comply with the Bush-era Real ID Act, rendering that 2005 law virtually null and void today.


CLICK HERE to view the Tenth Amendment Center’s Legislative Tracking Page for Current Nullification Efforts

But nullification is much more than just mere rhetoric. To nullify a federal law in practice requires active resistance to it by the people and the state government.

The Constitution and our Freedom

In order to sometimes better understand our Constitution, some may just need that visual or Video to help explain it all. For so long people and big Government tend to try to manipulate what it actually says. In another word say that is your interpretation.

Sorry to burst some bubbles here, but the Constitution is NOT left up to interpretations. It was written plainly for all to understand. With Big Governments taking away our rights and our freedoms. I seriously feel that more people need to learn this stuff. The reason for this blog is to help and try to reach some many that really have no clue about what our Constitution is about.
Here are some Video I had cliipped for a better understand about where our Government actually stands with WE THE PEOPLE.

I have found also that many people set up their own views and religious beliefs towards the Constitution of the United States, that most wind up making it yet even hard to understand. We all need to understand here in America, we would not have freedom of Religion here. Meaning that we would not be able to go to a church worship Jesus Christ in a park or our homes. Let alone have the freedom to share the gospel on Radio, TV, Concerts among so many others. The Gospel, meaning the Good News. is important to through our freedom of Speech. Our Constitution. With Hate Crime laws and Privacy acts being violated. I feel that our foundation that keeps America such a great Nation, may wind up falling to the very same High powered and controlling Governments that caused ALL major empires fall throughout history.

I love my God and I love my country. If you feel the same, or just love your country, please help educate those who know nothing about the Constitution of the United States.

Jury Nullification A Constitutional Right

This is Swampyank's copy of "The Jury&quo...Image via Wikipedia

In a trial by jury, the judge's job is to referee the trial and provide neutral legal advice to the jury, beginning with a full and truthful explanation of a juror's rights and responsibilities.

But judges rarely "fully inform" jurors of their rights, especially their power to judge the law itself and to vote on the verdict according to conscience. Instead, they end up assisting the prosecution by dismissing any prospective juror who will admit to knowing about this right, starting with anyone who also admits having qualms with any specific law.

In fact, if you have doubts about the fairness of a law, you have the right and obligation to find someone innocent even though they have actually broken the law! John Adams, our second president, had this to say about the juror: "It is not only his right but his find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgment, and conscience, though in direct opposition to the direction of the court."

It was normal procedure in the early days of our country to inform juries of their right to judge the law and the defendant. And if the judge didn't tell them, the defense attorney very often would. The nation's Founders understood that trials by juries of ordinary citizens, fully informed of their powers as jurors, would confine the government to its proper role as the servant, not the master, of the people.

Juries are charged today with the responsibility of reaching a verdict based on the facts of a case within the law as it is explained by the trial judge. Almost since the beginning of the jury in England, however, jurors have engaged in "nullification," where the jury exercises its discretion "in favor of a defendant whom the jury nonetheless believes to have committed the act with which he is charged"

The Right To Bear Arms

The Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments t...Image via Wikipedia

The Right to Bear Arms. The Second Amendment.

Amendment II
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Probably one of the most controversial Amendments in the Constitution yet one of the most important one to ever reach any document for an entire country to live by. This is what determines our Freedom here in the United States of America.

I know I have talked to many people from all over this wonderful Country, some with very good arguments on why we should not bear arms. Others that love this Right. I want to take a little time here to try to explain this a little more in depth so that some might understand why this is so important.

I understand the reason why so many are scared of guns but we also need to understand it's not the guns that kill its the people behind them. As we go throughout history which is very important to look back to for this very simple reason. A population without weapons to protect themselves, even entire Nations can and will be destroyed and conquered if the people have no way of defending themselves. Going back to several cases. Throughout all of History, there are higher Governments and rulers that love nothing but power, control, to be Rich and to get the people poor.

One example of this is when Spain invaded what we know of today as Mexico, The Aztecs and the Incas. Both very wealthy and Peaceful Empire with enough people to defend it on there own. Up until the Spanish came to their shores with guns and horses that is. See the Aztecs never saw these kinds of weapons, Chest plates of Iron, Loud canons, rifles along with fast moving animals they had never seen. All these people lived in peace. The only thing they could fight back with was spears, rocks and arrows. Though they had over powered the Spanish in numbers they were no match for the few behind the guns. Leaving them to not only loose their land and Empire but they all became slaves to the Spanish and up until they died working in the fields from over exhaustion and lack of food. They no longer had homes let alone families or a way of life. All because the ones invading had guns and they didn't. This is just one example.

This has happened world wide for thousands of years. One has better weapons and conquers the other. Our forefathers who wrote the Constitution knew this. Remember, They actually lived under Governments like this dominating anyone and everyone the possible could. Just to be the Higher Power.

This is why ALL of our ancestors left, any way they could to come to the land of the free, America the home of the Brave, The land of opportunity, and the Right to be able to protect their families and to be able to Worship God Freely, Anywhere without being persecuted for it. Those who wrote the Constitution knew History, they also knew that in order for We The People to keep such a great Country of freedom, that there would be times when Governments and other Countries may take advantage of the people and to try to come and conquer over them by any means just to have complete and total control over those who live here.

I here this same saying over and over. Why can't we all just get along? Or this one. God says thou shalt not kill. Hmmmm? See I personally have many problems with these sayings. For one, We can't get a long because most of these other countries still have the same exact rules and regulations and are out to conquer the world. A New World Government. With the whole idea that full control of the people on planet Earth will be the ultimate victory. Make the people poor. Spread the wealth so to speak take from those who have something and make them the same as the Starving African or the bum laying in the streets. Think this is impossible? Check out the News today. Let alone study up just a little bit on History. You just might be surprised on how easy this can and will be accomplished if the people have now way to protect themselves.

Thou shalt not Kill, If anyone actually reads the Bible and study the words it is actually Thou shall not Murder. The Right to bare Arms does not mean to just go around murdering people. It gives us the right to protect ourselves and our families lives. Even God throughout the entire Bible tells of stories upon stories of people having to protect themselves from evil doers throughout all of History. Why? cause Satan hates us all and wants us all dead. Believe it or not that is his plan. I will talk more on this subject later. I can just hope and pray the Church will wake up to this fact. Again The Right to Bear Arms does not mean to go out murdering people.

With Governments power, money and eagerness for more control. To become the best in the World, Also if not kept in line from the people, can turn out to be very disastrous not just for one nation but the entire world. We all saw what Hitler did. This is also a result of gun being taken from the public. This is why we went to War to help stop them. Is war good? No, not by any means. But, just as the Bible says, there is a time for peace, and there is a time for war. God gave us a great Nation to live in. Free, and full of life to worship him freely, unlike most countries on the planet. Murdered just because the love Jesus Christ. Imagine this in the land of the Free? It's just a few more laws away my friends.

I don't think most realize that we would by no means have or live in this great country if is wasn't for those who fought and died for us as all. This includes Jesus Christ. All those soldiers who had went out to war and fought so hard to keep the Freedom we have here at home. This should mean something for every American who lives and works and enjoys the lifestyles we all share here on this soil. Our freedom in America is what so many other Countries look up to. If it wasn't for our service in the Military and all those Men and Women who risk their lives everyday for not only us but, for the freedom of others in distant lands, we would by no means have our lifestyles here in America today. Yes we would all be slaves to the Governments who work so hard to take this great land from us. I try my best to go out an shake every officer in the Military's hands and tell them thank you. Christian or not. They put their lives on the line for me and you. We should all take the time to respect that. No matter what.

I can only hope that people might understand my point. May even make a few mad. But, know this. Take away the Right to Bear Arms? Get ready to become a slave with no rights at all. Many have fought and died for this Right and our freedom to live in such a great and awesome Country. I have a hard time believing that so many will just lay down ready to lose this wonderful and strong Nation under God.

I just want to add a couple more the amendments here to help get a better Understanding for the reasoning of the 2nd Amendment.

Know your Rights!

Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment II
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Amendment III

Amendment IV

Amendment V
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

The American Form of Government.

It's a Republic and not a Democracy like the people have been taught for the last 40 years. Multiculturalism and Socialism is bringing this Great Country to it's knees.

What so many don't seem to realize about our Country and our Constitutional Rights. The difference between Governments running everything or the People running it is the the difference of freedom.
Freedom is not Government run. Know your right and why they are there. Stand up for your Freedom and the Constitution. This is what makes our Country America great. Without it? We are just like everyone else.
