Wall of Protection
America’s Wall of Political Protection
America’s wall of political protection is a set of “checks and balances” drafted into our constitution to provide the States’ with the authority to keep the federal government in check. It is the checks and balances that protect the rights and freedom of the people.
Our Founding Fathers were so fearful of a runaway central government that they felt it necessary to establish in the U. S. Constitution multiple checks and balances. The Bill of Rights is one of the “checks and balances” added to the constitution to further clarify what the federal government could or could not do.
The Founding Fathers had been allowed to experience firsthand what it was like to live under the control of an all powerful central form of government. It was the rulings of an unjust King thousands of miles away that led to the Revolutionary War. After the war our Founders lived under a charter, the Articles of Confederation, which taught them the problems with a central government that did not have sufficient authority to rule efficiently.
Faced with the two extremes the Founding Fathers did not want their newly formed government to have the characteristics of either form of government. The Founders labored thousands of hours deliberating over the clauses and wording that would be included in the constitution providing the necessary protections.
Protecting the Unalienable Rights and Freedoms
The Founders were so diligent in protecting the people’s unalienable rights and freedoms that drafting the constitution took nearly eleven years to accomplish. After the constitution was drafted it took two additional years before the document was ratified to become the “Constitution of the United States of America”. The Bill of Rights was added to the constitution as many of the Founder’s felt additional support was necessary to enhance the checks and balances within the constitution. The resulting document enhanced America’s wall of political protection by establishing additional checks and balances.
Checks and Balances
Our Founders were fearful of a runaway central government so within the constitution were placed “checks and balances” so that actions taken by the central government could be controlled. Over the years we have allowed our representatives to alter the constitution thereby removing many of the established checks and balances.
Today we are facing the effects of removing these checks and balances from our constitution. Our country has become what our Founders feared the most. Our federal government has near unlimited power of its citizens. Many of the ills facing this nation are the result of our abandoning the safe guards provided in the original Founder’s constitution.
Today’s runaway government must be bridled. Our politicians are not able to establish control over the federal bureaucracy on their own. It is up to us the people to step in to take control re-establishing the checks and balances that were placed in the constitution when it was originally ratified in 1789.
Healing of America
America can be healed. The process begins with educating the American public of the great document they had been given by the Founders. When an understanding of the U. S. Constitution is fully comprehended by the population as a whole we will have within our power the ability to begin healing America. By re-establishing America’s wall of political protection (s) we can heal the constitution which will allow the healing of America to begin.
