Christianity and the Coming Dissolution of the United States

Conservative Chloe's Eagle Eye blog takes activist judicial interpretation of the Constitution to court.

Chloe argues that Jefferson and other of the Founding Fathers believed in a literalist interpretation of the Constitution. Quoting Jefferson:

"On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed."

As well, Chloe points out that the Founding Fathers saw this as a Christian nation. Quoting the Northwest Ordinance, signed by President George Washington:

"Religion, morality, and knowledge, necessary to good government and happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged."

Chloe argues that America is a Christian nation. Supreme Court and other rulings that have overturned the Founders' original intent are illegitimate.

Recently, I received an e-mail from Baruch College, a campus of the City University of New York, as is my employer, Brooklyn College. The e-mail said that Baruch College was holding a colloquium on whether the Constitution should be abolished. The academics involved were indifferent to republicanism, limited government or restrictions on government to steal, murder, loot, mismanage and oppress. These academics are ignorant of history. In short, they are quacks.

Conservative Chloe makes a good point. However, the resolution of these differences is hard. I do not believe that the Supreme Court of today functions as a legitimate institution. It is not authorized by the Constitution to write law, but it has repeatedly done that. It has done so in the name of changing social values. Yet, the Supreme Court does not represent Americans' values and has no mechanism to be aware of them.

The justices on the Supreme Court are taken from the ranks of elite universities. Elite universities are overtly antagonistic to traditional American values. I would add that quack social theories; medieval belief systems concerning socialism and how economies ought to work; and primitive attitudes toward the legitimacy of state violence and murder, especially as concerns left-wing or communist dictatorships and murderers are common. A murderer like Che Guevara is eulogized in these circles, as are failed, stupidly conceived medieval economic systems such as those of the Soviet Union and Cuba.

Trained in the primitive ignorance characteristic of American universities, the Supreme Court of the United States reflects neither prevalent social attitudes and mores nor any kind of evolution. They are a medievalist, reactionary body whose aim is to assist the far left in imposing aristocratic and monarchical systems on the American people through a total state similar to what existed in Russia in the 14th century.

The question is how to resolve this dilemma. On the one hand, the quackademics agitate ceaselessly for medieval government through what they pathetically call "progressivism". At the same time, real Americans favor progress through economic evolution, free markets, innovation and the free circulation of ideas, free of the unlimited authoritarian state that left-wing academics and their pupils on the Supreme Court advocate.

The conflict is one of an unstoppable force and an immovable object. The end result will be dissolution of the United States.

There is no reason why Conservative Chloe should be forced to share this nation with the thuggish, left wing knuckleheads who dominate Congress. Nor should people schooled in American history like Conservative Chloe be forced to share this country with ignoramuses who do not know that the Founders saw a militia and the ownership of guns as necessary to protect against the tyrannical state--the very kind of state academics and the US Supreme Court advocate.

The country ought to be broke up into several regions. The regions ought to reflect widespread values of large groups of Americans. Each region ought to be free to form its own constitution as far as economic and social values. The Supreme Court ought to be decentralized into the several regions. The chief remaining duty of the federal government ought to be national defense. The federal government ought to be elected by the state governments and by the people. The regions should be free to decide on their own monetary, economic, social and religious policies.

America is simply too large to manage. The attitudes of the left, namely, the activist state, are incompatible with the ideals of the Founders. The failure of the activist state has, unbelievably, been met in left-wing and Democratic Party circles for calls for an ever more activist state.

The current federal government lacks legitimacy. It exists by force of violence. It is a tyranny.

The dissolution described in your post became obvious to me when the congress voted blindly on a trillion dollar stimulus bill-- in front of the entire world! It's understood many lawmakers knew beforehand what to expect but even still, passing welfare and bonuses and the like soviet style on their constituents was a shocking act of hatred for people who did not deserve such treatment. Regionalism would only postpone their pursuit of anarchy. The midterm elections are in serious danger, provided the congress lasts long enough.
