The Apostle Paul compares following the Christ to be like running a race. It involves investment and discipline. When it comes to day to day life I find Micah 6:8 to be helpful. (ESV) “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” The most troubling aspect to our current state is the lack of justice. To big to fail? I believe that the law should be written with the goal of clarity and specificity and kept to a concise structure. Its application should be equal for all.
The Constitution provides for two forms of currency. It is a sign of how far from the Rule of Law we have come that our currency today is created at the whim of non elected bureaucrats who are not answerable to the people. Gold and Silver are what the constitution stipulates because they stand alone and require no counter party. I would encourage every person to consider what constitutes a secure store of the value of there labor and to make investment and avoid counter party risk whenever possible.
The United States was founded as an experiment in government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Understanding our Constitution is the task and responsibility of every resident. It is the framework of Government and defines its scope and structure. We have moved far from our founding primarily because of lack of education and willingness to hold our elected officials to account. I believe the best way to improve our governmental affairs is with education and implementation of term limits on all elected offices. To this end I pledge not to hold any elected office for more than two consecutive terms.
