What Has Happened To

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

These words and the words that follow were written by our founding fathers to establish a nation free of excessive and restrictive laws, over taxation, and a governmental establishment under which they were not represented and had no power to change. The Constitution of the United States of America was written to protect the freedom and liberty of it's citizens and to assure their rights to persue life in a way of thier own choosing. They were revolutionaries who fought for their freedom and gave their lives to create this great nation. They became free men and wrote laws to guarentee the same freedoms for all American people to come. Those laws are now being misconstrued and misinterpreted to bennifit certain people and America is being turned upside down by the greed, ignorance, lack of fairness and justice, and corruption of those in power. America is no longer the nation that the founding fathers intended and will destroy itself if these perversions arn't corrected.

In recent years, the founding father's concepts and ideas for a free nation have been turned upside down by government bureaucracy regulating social behavior, a court system with no sense of fairness or common sense, and the inability to understand the intent of the Constitution as written by the founding fathers. A government making laws that divide Americans into ethnic groups and treat these groups differently with special privileges for minorities which discriminate against the so called majority. The concept of a united America and all men being treated equal under the law is gone. They forbid discrimination based on race by the citizens, yet practice it themselves in the laws they write.

The First Amendment states:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

It guaranteed the citizens the right to speak their minds freely without censorship, the right to practice and express their religious beliefs without any government interference. These rights are clearly stated and easy to understand, so why do some claim that this means that the government must deny the existence of God and not allow his name to be seen or heard on any property supported in part by the government? They are using their perverted interpretation of the First Amendment to remove our national motto, "In God We Trust", from the eyes and ears of the country and are getting the support of federal judges who haven't a grain of common sense or just don't want to acknowledge God in America. Yet, none of them mind receiving and spending our currency with those words clearly printed right on it.

Our Government has been passing laws and making policies that do not treat all citizens equally. This really started long before the current administration with "political correctness", "Affirmative Action", and other rules and regulations that give special privileges and treatment to minority groups at the expense of the average hard working middle class Americans. It's become common practice to divide America into ethnic groups under the law creating more friction and hate between the groups.

There is no question that discrimination in hiring against blacks existed in this country and changes were needed to correct this injustice. School bussing of students to other districts, racial quotas, and special privileges for minorities just isn't the right way to go about it. "Discrimination" is not a dirty word and every American has the right to use it and does in our every day life. It is our right to choice in everything we do. Employers have the natural right to discriminate when they hire and to choose the best qualified applicant for the job. The law states that "race" is not to be considered in hiring, and well it shouldn't. In that case, race or national origin should not be allowed on the application for consideration in hiring. If a minority applicant is best qualified, then he or she should be hired on that basis and not hired simply because of racial quotas. The non-minority applicant who has worked harder for his or her qualifications is rejected unfairly because equal standards were not applied to all. In order to comply with federally mandated quotas, professional standards have been lowered and services to the public are more costly and of a lower quality. In some cases, employers are forced to hire unqualified persons just to meet these quotas. It bad for business and bad for the public that depends on it. It's unconstitutional in that all men are not being treated equal under the law.

Commerce is important in keeping the national economy strong. The Government knows this and must do all it can to support big business. Corporate executives and government are very closely linked together and often enjoy the same benefits and privileges. Members of the legislature have no need for Social Security and could care less about it. They have their own retirement plan that guarantees them a healthy retirement package depending on their length of service.

In the case of corporate CEOs and CFOs, they guarantee themselves a fortune even if they have to embezzle, steal, or rip off the stockholders to do it. Corporate law states that when a company is incorporated, the CEO can not be held responsible for financial losses and liabilities of the corporation. IS THIS A FAIR LAW? How many times lately have we seen CEOs syphoning off corporate funds into their own bank accounts and running the company into bankruptcy, then retiring with all the corporate money while the stock holders are left holding the bag? A CEO should be held financiially responsible for his company's success OR FAILURE. Any profits gained from his possition as CEO should all be returned to the stockholders if the company goes under. It just seems that people with power are all out to grab all they can and run with it these days. Fortunately, the Bush Administration is prosecuting these thieves as they never were under the Clintons.

The government won't do anything about spam because it creates profit for businesses. They fake it by writing spam bills to control spam but leave holes in them by saying it's ok to spam as long as you include a "remove" link in your mailing (whether it works or not). Seems everything here is motivated by money and no matter how much something would improve the quality of life in America, if it isn't profitable, it doesn't happen. Our economy is driven by corporate profits and what we get on the market is what makes the most profit.

Our America is still the best country in the world to live in but is in need of reforms. The people need to take back control of our government and our country from corrupt judges and politicians. These pages will discuss some of these issues and suggest some possible changes to improve our lives.
