repeating that we are about to be saddled with martial law from some
catastrophic event soon to hit. Again,
let me take the amateur position about this.
The Constitution makes no provisions for suspending itself. Congress cannot do it, the president cannot,
the military cannot, and the judiciary cannot.
It also has no provisions for anyone to enact martial law. The Constitution contains some components of martial law, but with
restrictions of their use. The military,
for instance, can assist in
enforcing existing law; it is not a law unto itself. A military leader cannot legally (under the
Constitution) declare that such-and-such are now laws and that anyone breaking such
declarations will be held accountable to the military; it just is not provided
for in the Constitution.
concerned about Romans 13 in the Bible, just remember that the Constitution is the supreme law of the
land; not the military, not the president, not Congress, etc. Religious leaders that may have undergone training
to the contrary by government agencies should prepare to defend the
Constitution, at least by refusing to be involved in anything that remotely
takes away the rights of the people.
True, when staring down the barrel of a Howitzer, it may be difficult to
remember the Constitution; but if there is truly strength in numbers in such a
situation, then remember that you at least have the Constitution on your side,
and thousands of American lives have been lost defending those freedoms with
all that they had to give.
Our liberties and
Constitutional (and inalienable) rights
for sale. We have the inalienable right
to self-government, free from the interference of elites that would take away
those privileges. Regardless of which of
our rights may be important to you--and some of those other rights important to
others that you may not care so much about--we have to find some common ground
to make a stand or we could all be in the same sad state of affairs in the
not-too-distant future: hungry, broke, and without a suitable shelter of our
