Hierarchy of Law
December 16, 2013
We begin yet again: a new 30-day window for signature gathering for our petition to protect our Sovereignty and our Constitution.
We require a specific statement from The White House regarding what efforts The White House will take & when, in support of a proposal for a Constitutional Amendment [called “Hierarchy of Law” at http://www.usann.us/Hierarchy_of_Law.html & further explained on that site], to preserve Sovereignty, and The Constitution as the guiding Law of the Land, & by ensuring a specific clarification of a hierarchy within the structures provided within & under that Constitution; or, a statement of why such support is not & will not be provided.
The proposal is largely designed to keep UN & similar attempts against US sovereignty, as regarding arms and the Law of the Sea Treaty, from ever allowing the UN or others to dictate to the US, while still allowing the US to adopt positions in line with such.
This petition is hosted on a White House site, https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/issue-specific-statement-regarding-preservation-sovereignty-and-constitution-outside-influence/TPXj9X26 [or http://wh.gov/l8XXM] which does require a name and an email address to “open an account”, which takes just a couple of minutes; it also hosts a lot of other petitions, accessible through the same account. It might be worth checking out even if you don’t like ours.
While we think this is clear enough for just about anybody to sign without even having to read the material referenced, we invite you to do the reading. We are pretty sure any examination of the material will only further encourage folk to sign. We hope it will also encourage people to recommend to virtually everybody they know, to sign also.
While we hold The Constitution in great esteem here, considering it something of a holy document [the house Barbarian calls it one part of his Holy Trinity], we do not see it as the beginning and ending of all things Great and Good. Neither did those who wrote it, evidenced by one of the most miraculous features of the document: the provision(s) for amending it.
We do not consider proposing Amendment lightly for a number of reasons. We do not think that all situations necessarily call for a change to The Constitution, in part because we think most answers are already there. We also are not at all sure that we are somehow blessed with a special combination of skills and talents uniquely and adequately suited to the task, and we certainly claim no exclusivity in such if we are found to be reasonably suited in this instance.
Still, the ravages of 200 years of neglect in some quarters, and the creativity of some of those less-enlightened than The Founders, has brought on situations that do indeed call for changes — and in some cases, changes to changes [like rescinding the 17th Amendment, thereby returning election of Senators to the State legislatures]. We believe that the most appropriate means by which to address this problem — and it is a problem — is, unfortunately, by Constitutional Amendment.
What follows is adapted from a more extensive work in progress [the proposal being only one of a series which are intended and structured to work together, though each is also constructed to work as an independent piece: another is “Fiscal Responsibility“, for which we’ve set up a separate petition and ask assistance there as well], which we hope will explain the rather strong copyright restriction.
Loss of Sovereignty
Loss of sovereignty has been seen here for a long time. We have watched for years as Congress made itself less and less relevant, and as the Administration and even the Judiciary sought more and more accord with international entities than with the people of the country. Consider the array of U.N. Treaties and accords [by whatever name known] on the environment, childrens’ rights, Agenda 21, and firearms, just for openers. Obama and his Secretary of State and others have been heading that way since coming to Power, in a number of ways and on a number of fronts; they are not the first, but they’ve been going at it with unprecedented vigor and thoroughness.
We at this site believe that the country is on the brink, not just financially, and not just on sovereignty, and not just on those two items: we are in big trouble in too many ways to address in what might be seen as “a sound bite” or a blog entry.
But the threat to Sovereignty demands, as we see it, immediate response, and if it costs us potential future earnings, well, at least we might still live, and in a country where earnings are at least a potential. We also have seen the threat to Sovereignty as being way beyond war-making powers, which is what has brought this to a head, and we have devised our REMEDY to address Sovereignty specifically, rather than any form an attack on it might take. We think readers will find it covers “a multitude of sins”.
