Your home for discussing politics, the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and the principles of liberty.
I guess I always had a sort of sense about what's right and wrong with governance but the wake up point was around the time of Obama's re-election that I noticed his neo-conservative actions weren't being attacked at all the way George Bush and John McCain were criticized by pundits and the media only four years before. Part of how JBS attracted me was that they spoke to my common sense though I wasn't really versed in the ideals of being right of center.Original_Intent wrote: ↑Mon Apr 17, 2017 9:35 amI am wondering if there was a defining point in your life that you "woke up" to the current situation, or were you just raised in a home that taught you this viewpoint? If there was a "wake up" moment can you share what led up to it? The JBS also has had a very strong impact on me.
I am not in the JBS right now only because Im unable to be an activist at the moment.
I adhere to the Founder's vision of the Constitution and don't even recognize the supreme court as having authority to rule what is and is not constitutional. Amendments 16 and 17 should be repealed and there is evidence that the 16th wasn't legally ratified.lundbaek wrote: ↑Mon Apr 17, 2017 11:36 amAspietroll, You stated that "My political ideals are of strict constitutionalism". Which constitution do you support, the Framers' Constitution or the Supreme Court's Constitution ? To get an idea of what I'm on about, have a look at www.inspiredconstitution.org/jh_gk/chapter_1.html
My point is that there have been 17 amendments to the US Constitution since the Bill of Rights, some of which maintain the spirit of the original Constitution, and others which infringe on our freedoms. That's why you might note that I often, when referencing the Constitution, follow it with the caveat "in the tradition of the Founding Fathers" or "as the Founders meant it to be understood.
Also,it might help you to be aware that it is a tenet of the Mormon Faith that the Lord "established the Constitution of this land..." And some of those participants of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, including Washington, Franklin and Madison, acknowledged divine help of "Providence" as they composed the Constitution.
Well, I found that in order for me to support the JBS I would have to debate why they had their position on civil rights. I can deliver a pretty thorough posting on that issue. Also, Im versed in my history of the United Nations, European Union and communism.
