Making Our Government Serve Us, Again

When the needs of everyday Americans takes a backseat to the access and influence of the permanent establishment of DC, we need to be aggressive and assert our right to new elected representation.

Bill of Rights and 14th Amendment

The First Amendment is rightly placed at the top of our Bill of Rights. We are not a Country controlled by the masses, but we are a nation of laws founded on God’s providence. So, the expression of the faith and the fortitude of the people versus the government and before God is strictly and rightfully protected. As a man of faith, this is highly important to me.  This passion extends beyond my own faith to a healthy respect for the expression of all citizens in a peaceful and orderly fashion.

The Second Amendment is of course a matter of controversy to many, but not me.   The trust of  the government towards the People and vice versa really brings to question today whether the Founders properly installed in the Bill of Rights. After all this leaves such power and authority outside of government.   I believe that they were spot on, reaffirming the ideas of self-preservation that comes from God.

Red Flag laws are an attempt to empower courts with the ability to preemptively disarm those considered to be a threat to themselves or others.  However, this clearly is a work-around of the Second Amendment.  This is intolerable.

The Fourteenth Amendment (1868) was not ratified in Kentucky until two years before I was born (1976). As we contemplate the nature of freedom and the slow pace of change in our rather young national experiment in democracy, true freedom lovers must acknowledge that we are still perfecting self-governance. The Kentucky Constitution and the American Constitution are living documents that must be upheld by elected leaders and courts, but ultimately, we the People must demand justice. Voting rights, economic freedoms, and other civil rights and liberties must be made available to all eligible citizens expeditiously and fairly.
