WHY A FREEDOM AMENDMENT

  Bill Sullivan     WHY A FREEDOM AMENDMENT?


SOMETIMES AMERICANS assume that in this country each person has the right to do whatever they want as long as it is their personal choice; it should not be the business of anyone else. In truth this can be taken to the point of the absurd. As long as the people in a country are Godly and are ruling themselves mostly according to the Word of God, you can get pretty good results. One of the founders put it best.

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. "----- John Adams

The problems began to be seen, in earnest, when government is called upon to litigate every thing men can imagine. People generally do not even think of these things today nor understand what part these concepts play in protecting us from Tyranny and from forcing ungodly things upon the nation. Jefferson also thought of these things as we see below.

1. "Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others." --Thomas Jefferson to I. Tiffany, 1819.

2. "All natural rights may be abridged or modified in their exercise by law." --Thomas Jefferson: Official Opinion, 1790.

3. "Laws abridging the natural right of the citizen should be restrained by rigorous constructions within their narrowest limits." --Thomas Jefferson to I. McPherson, 1813.

Notice in no.1 above, Jefferson assumed what he called "rightful liberty." That presumes UN-RIGHTFUL liberty. You see you have the liberty to think about or pick up a gun and go next door and shoot your neighbor. I call this FREEDOM. It is not a right. You have the freedom to be drunk with liquor or drugs. That is not a right. You have the freedom to cuss out God upon which concept the country is founded. This is not a right. We are becoming confused between freedom and rights . It is time we fully understand what the founders knew that Freedom and Rights are not the same thing. It confuses people into thinking that America or the Constitution has granted rights that it cannot. So if I want to be a moose, some time in the future the government might assume I have that right and thus; FORCE the tax payer to pay for adding moose horn on, lets say an inmate, who believes he is or wants to be a moose.

The type of reasoning is already taken place. I submitted a second proposal for the Convention of States movement. This one could help guide and keep us within the founding principles of liberty, freedom and rights today. Below is the wording to that proposal.

.

Second Proposed Amendment:

2. All legislatures and courts must take in effect the difference between rights which are inalienable; and Freedom. They must understand that Freedom as a whole is a matter of free will and could be good or bad; which courts and legislatures must not declare to be rights. They must best served freedom by allowing logic, religion and other social pressures and interplay of ideas; to get people to police themselves, as long as they do not impede significantly the natural rights and freedom of others. No individual freedom is allowed to take away the natural rights of others. The protection of natural rights is the whole objective of our government.
