In the last generation, the federal government and Supreme Court have gained an enormous amount of power at the expense of individual and state rights. Americans have become increasingly ignorant of their constitutional freedoms, so much so that most people don't even realize it when a legislative or court decision blatantly violates their rights. Understanding your rights as an American citizen is vital to preserving America as we have known it. An increasingly loud subset of Americans are openly advocating for a totalitarian government in which the all knowing, all wise government employees and judges determine how the rest of us should live.The Founders were used to a totalitarian government. The monarch of England and the British Parliament were reigning over their American colonies with absolute power. The colonists weren't represented in Parliament. They had no power to change unjust laws by legislative means. They had to revolt and fight with arms to overturn an unjust system.Today, fortunately, we do have the power to vote. The government is still in the hands of the people and we can change it if we want to. All powerful courts and dictatorial edicts from Washington are the law of the day, however, because we have allowed it. We have placed people into office who usurp local authority, tell us the laws passed by our legislatures are "unconstitutional" and violate our rights everyday.The key to changing this is our own education concerning political matters. We must learn the principles in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We must read them and understand the proper roles of the President, Congress, the Supreme Court and the States. We must learn about the limited list of powers given to Congress in the Constitution and know that all other rights and powers are given to the states and to the people.In "Understand Your Rights Because You're About to Lose Them!" you will learn about the basic rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution. You will learn about their history, why they were important to the Founders and how they impact you on a daily basis. Understanding these rights is the key to slowing and reversing the power grab from Washington. Let's understand our rights and put people into office who will preserve them and reverse the trend before it is too late.
