Why I don't post daily

Originally I was more involved in my teachings. I had hoped that with some effort I could reach people and get them on the road to increased knowledge and with that increased freedom through proper involvement in the government process. What I found was that the majority, and even the majority of those desiring smaller government, really don't want to put out the required effort needed to grow and become a proper citizen. People are innately lazy and I underestimated the extent of that laziness. And so I too become lazy in my writing, in my expositions.

I believe the government established under the US Constitution to be one of the best if not the best ever concocted by man. But we do not have that government. The adage that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely were never more true that within our government. For instance, I doubt that more than a handful of people out there know that the federal government has no authority to spend monies on local issues, i.e. bringing home the pork to one's district is a violation of the limitations placed upon Congress by the Constitution. That is merely the tip of the iceberg. Those who serve us know even less than the people they serve and are quite often more corrupt than average, and that is saying a lot.

I am by heart a pessimist. I wish I could have a different outlook but my more than 50 years on Earth hasn't altered that. I worked throughout the 90s writing my book. I hoped that by sharing it online more people would read it and learn. I believe in my heart that I was guided by a higher power. What that power is/was I do not know but something/someone was there pushing me forward. I have attempted to write in a format that is ammenable to easy study. Yes, what I say is my interpretation of the US Constitution, however I attempt to stay within the bounds of the simple meanings of the words used. I follow standard reading and standard logic in making my determinations. I also read the Constitution as a single document with all parts closely intertwined. A common error is made when clauses are extracted and used out of the context of the entire document. Words convey a specific meaning when written as they are in a document like the Constitution. I know that anyone who studies the Constitution with an open mind will likely arrive at the same conclusions as I.

I pray that my pessimism is unwarranted and that those who read these words will follow my links to my book and study. May each reader be guided in the search for truth.
