The American Way

The American Way is based on the Constitutional Rule of Law. It is not based on fiat rule of law that acknowledges only the state and fails to recognize individual rights. It is not the fiat rule of law that is formed by men who fail to grasp the fact that a creator rules over all, men who, seeing creation before them cannot summon enough power of reason to infer a cause for the existence of this universe, or who wish to dispense with such concepts for their personal convenience, supposedly on behalf of the state.

Because American Rule of Law is based on the foundation that individuals are endowed with inalienable rights, it acknowledges areas where government may not tread, where government has no dominion. The rights that fit this category are listed in the Bill of Rights, and this document is the final reason why American Rule of Law knows limits. Fiat rule of law knows no limits because it is created by those who themselves do not wish to be limited, it is law created by man, who doesn't necessarily follow natural law, nor the boundaries that natural law imposes.

The founding documents of this nation explain much more clearly than I can...

"There is a danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty."--James Madison, Notes for an Oration at Braintree [Spring 1772]
