“The concentrating [of powers] in the same hands is precisely the definition of despotic government. It will be no alleviation that these powers will be exercised by a plurality of hands, and not by a single one.” Thomas Jefferson

Religious Freedom & The Constitution

The first amendment to the Constitution states that, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Of course that means we can put our religious beliefs into action in whatever way we choose. That is the point, isn’t it? We have free will. We are free men and free women. The government or some politician doesn’t have the authority under the Constitution to decide for us. Most Americans do believe this. The problem is that many if not most of our politicians do not understand that the Constitution was designed to secure the individual’s rights, not the federal governments. We have strayed so far from our Constitution that Mr. Obama thinks that he can decide for us which of our beliefs and principles we can exercise and which we cannot. All this in spite of the fact that the bill of rights specifically states exactly the opposite and the oath of office requires Mr. Obama to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution. This is one of the president’s main functions and is neglect of duty if not being done. Thus an impeachable offense

It is extremely important all Americans, no matter which side you are on,  face these facts. We do have religious freedom in our country and Mr. Obama is working quickly to remove this right bit by bit from our Constitution! Even if your beliefs are not in their crosshairs now eventually they will be and so will you. The question is will there be anyone left standing with you?

We can think that this could never happen here and well, everyone uses contraception anyway, so what’s the big deal. But consider this, every dictatorship, totalitarian state, marxist state and police state has started out by taking away freedom’s enjoyed by it’s citizens. Don’t take my word for it check it out for yourself. Look at what has happened in other countries likeVenezuela.

We must confront what is actually occurring here, right now, right this minute. Many of the bureaucrats and politicians in our government are factually working to undermine our Constitution and bill of rights. The evidence is all around us. The bigger our government gets the more freedoms we lose with more forms to fill out and more bureaucrats to tell us what and how we are allowed to do things.  These bureaucrats are unelected and appointed mostly by the president, who from his actions, demonstrates that he’s only interested in what the government can do to you and is totally uninterested in what the government can’t do to you! Ask yourself how else could someone care more about a supposed right to a free abortion drug than to the free exercise of one’s religion, principles and morals? This defies logic!

What can we do about it? First we must let all of our representatives, senators and the president know that these are unconstitutional actions, period! Nothing can force us to go against our own principles and belief’s. Not even the federal government! Next write letters, send e-mails, visit offices and phone your senators, representatives and the president. We will let them know who’s the boss and in the process enforce our Constitution.

All of us are guaranteed the free exercise of our beliefs whether religious or not. Any attempt by anyone in our government to strip this right from any individual in America is unacceptable and will not be tolerated! It’s as simple as Keeping Our Constitution Working!

Author: Tom - Fundamentals of Freedom

I am a small businessman of 31 years,father of three boys and two girls, grandfather to a grandson and happily married for 40 years. I realized our Freedoms & Liberties were disappearing in front of my eyes. I had to do something about it. I started a blog which is dedicated to the individual American and how current political events will and can effect our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is a work in progress and hopefully may inspire others to help our country regain limited government and our individual rights. It is based on our Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. These founding documents contain all of the data we need to secure these rights for ourselves, our families, our churches and our communities. It is the individual American’s charity, ingenuity, creativity, morality and exceptionalism that makes our country the envy of the rest of the world. I salute the Founders for it was their genius and sacrifice that allows me to write on these principles of government today.
