Where Does The Hatred Of Constitutionalism Come From?

Real News Reporter shares with us an essay by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market

The Constitution of the United States is an undeniably powerful document.  So powerful in fact, that it took establishment elitists with aspirations of globalized governance over a century to diminish the American people’s connection to it.  It’s been a long time coming, but in the new millennium, there is now indeed a subsection of the masses that not only have no relationship to our founding roots, they actually despise those of us who do!

Including the following video,  wherein a New Hampshire politician voices his opposition to libertarians moving into his State:

The essay IS a worthy read!

  1. I don’t “hate” the constitution at all. I simply find that it is absolutely an enemy of individual liberty, and was always intended to be. It was a compact between smaller political monopolies, imposed on the people more than 200 years ago by those “rulers.” Yes, it was a bit less intrusive then in some ways… as long as you were not an indian, a Catholic/Irish/Italian (later) in New York, a Chinaman in California, a black person, or a woman anyway…

    Where does legitimate authority over people’s lives and property originate?

    And it’s the most important question we can ask ourselves. Do we own our lives, or have we given our sovereign and natural authority over ourselves to the rulers and politicians?

    Those who have freely consented to be controlled by the constitution and the layers of ruling class and bureaucracy it created do not need my permission or my blessing. They are free to do so. The problem is that they feel equally or even especially free to impose that on me, even though I have NOT consented to be so ruled. By their own words, they must have the “consent of the governed,” but not one of them is willing to entertain the fact that not consenting -simply opting out – is possible.

  3. “Live Free or Die” probably applies to being free to live the way “The Chosen” have selected for you … and the consequence if you choose not to.

  4. I could have guessed Cheshire county was home to Keene.
    While interviewing with Segway (when it was still the uber-secret “Ginger” project) they hooked me up with a realtor for house shopping.
    My wife and I looked around at the various towns to get a feel, some at or beyond the limits of a reasonable drive to Manchester.
    When I saw an interesting listing for Keene, I inquired about the place. More than one resident commented it was more accurately referred to by most as, “The People’s Republic of Keene.”
