Ruler’s Law vs People’s Law

I am reading The 5000 Year Leap by W. Cleon Skousen and will share with you some of the things that I have learned along the way.   This book is about 28 principles that allowed the United States of America to become the greatest free nation in the history of the world.

I will start with Ruler’s Law and People’s Law, which is about the structure of our government.

The founding fathers defined government in terms of political power, not political parties.  Today, it is very difficult to see a real difference between the two major political parties.  Although we are starting to see a strong conservative movement come alive…it is about time!

Anyway, back to the American founders.  They defined the two political extremes as Tyranny and Anarchy, not Left or Right.   Anarchy is the absence of government, no law, or systematic control.  Tyranny as the other extreme with too much government, too much political oppression, too much control.  So on a scale, you could put Anarchy at 0% government and Tyranny at 100%.

The American founders wanted to find a balanced center between these two extremes, which is called People’s law.   It is called People’s Law because the power resides in the people, not the government.

Putting a system of People’s law in place would provide just enough government to maintain security and justice, but not enough to control the people’s liberty and freedom.

So how does that power feel lately to you?

Do you feel ignored, insulted, ridiculed?

Do our elected representatives listen to us?

Are you appalled at how arrogant have they become towards us?

For example, when asked how the health care bill is constitutional, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s responds “Are you serious?”  or during an August 2009 town hall,  Congressman Barney Frank responds “What planet are you from, you are like talking to a table.”

Note: I do realize there are some that still have their hearts in the right place, but there are few of them.

The 5000 Year Leap is available at National Center for Constitutional Studies,  you can also even get a pocket constitution.

    Smartest thing i have ever read about our government today. Congressmen have stopped listening to what the people want and have begun doing what they want and what they feel is right, and sometimes what they think is right is completly wrong and will end up hurting this country in the long run. Congress needs to go back to how our founding fathers intended this nation to be, a government of laws and not of rulers.

    Are you familiar with the man behind the lists and the books? I have an expose on my home page this weekend about Cleon Skousen that should interest you. Can you handle the truth?
