Unique among all nations past and present - unless we turn into yet another
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]
