Our First Law Is Clear

Just a little more time is all we're asking for
'Cause just a little more time could open closing doors
--Corey Hart

Reflecting on the escalating insanity of our economic and financial situation, the author here concludes that returning government to it original scope, the scope defined by our nation's first law, is the best solution.

Indeed, Jefferson was clear. The purpose of the national government is to secure our natural rights. If a government exceeds that scope, then the people are justified in throwing it off in favor of one that is more capable of securing our natural rights.

It is also clear that the current scope of the federal government far exceeds those boundaries defined by natural law. We are blatantly violating our first law.

The author suggests that the recent debt ceiling squabble has awakened more people to this reality. I hope and pray that he is correct.

I would be lying, however, if I said that I thought people are waking up fast enough.

Life, faculties, production—in other words, individuality, liberty, property—this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.
