Like the foundation of a strong building a nation must have a firm foundation, The principles spelled out in the Declaration of Independence are the foundation of America.
The founders believed that it was self-evident truth that all men and women were sons and daughters of God and we were endowed with the same rights and responsibilities.
It is true that the Constitution was written by an oligarchy of rich and powerful landowners and merchants and that violated many of the principles found in the Declaration of Independence were abandoned Rather than strict adherence to the Laws of Natures the men who wrote the Constitution decided to make a series of compromises
The Constitution should have been perfectly aligned with the principles outlined in the Declaration of Independence, but sadly it was not. The fact that the institution of of slavery was authorized in the Constitution doomed our Nation from the very start.
To live in the land of the free everyone must be treated equally under the law. The seeds of the Civil War were planted when the Constitution was ratified in 1788.
The creation of a House of Representatives where decision were made based of the popular will of the majority of the representatives turned the House into a democratic assembly Our government was to be governed by God’s Law and not the popular will of the majority
Contrary to what you may believe, the Constitution is not the Supreme Law of the Land, it is subordinate to the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God..
In order for the Constitution to have succeeded in protecting the lives, liberty and property of the people, it would have been necessary for the people to hold their elected officials accountable.
