The Preamble to the US Constitution Contained 52 Words

Today’s US Code Is Over 104 Million Words

3 Jul 2021 ~~ By Joe Hoft

The US Constitution is under attack. The numbers show it.

In the last 6 months, it seems that a ‘process’ has been kicked into overdrive to completely subvert the American way of life. Many of those that have sworn to uphold and defend the constitution clearly have either never read the document, flat don’t understand it, or are willingly working to subvert it.
The Constitution of the United States, in its totality, is a mere ~ 4500 words and can be read in about 30 minutes. It’s doubtful if the majority of those that have sworn to protect, uphold, and or defend it have never read it.
The Preamble to the Constitution contains the defining and most well-known phrases of our government. It is 52 words in length.
The Preamble of the U.S. Constitution—the document’s famous first fifty-two words— introduces everything that is to follow in the Constitution’s seven articles and twenty-seven amendments. It proclaims who is adopting this Constitution: “We the People of the United States.” It describes why it is being adopted—the purposes behind the enactment of America’s charter of government. And it describes what is being adopted: “this Constitution”—a single authoritative written text to serve as fundamental law of the land. Written constitutionalism was a distinctively American innovation, and one that the framing generation considered the new nation’s greatest contribution to the science of government.
Here is the Preamble:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Some of the most powerful and well thought out and distilled words ever put on paper are contained in the Preamble. It takes just 2 minutes to read, and it distills what is to come in the Constitution’s body.
Compare this to the current US Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).. which is what our Government HAS BECOME is ~ 104 MILLION words and would take about 6000 hours to read it. Those who work with and through these documents after years often come across wording that even lawyers can’t understand.
The entire CFR is a monument in and of itself mocking what the founders wanted for our way of government …
Does 104 MILLION words of what people can and can’t do, how they can’t do it, and where… sound ANYTHING like limited government, personal freedoms, sovereignty, etc.?

Through lawfare and weaponizing the CFR and our judicial system.. individuals and entities are at work dismantling those most elegant 4543 words that once defined our most cherished way of government, “the US Constitution”.



Comment:
The main weapon of tyranny is to have so many laws on the books that everyone, everywhere is in violation of some law at all times. Then all the the corrupt system needs to do is selectively apply the law only to its own critics and enemies in order to ensure retention of power.
We should ALL be willing to defend the Constitution as those that came before us did....no matter what the cost. "Live Free Or Die". Just not enough people are willing to put it all on the line to secure our freedoms like our forefathers did. To comfortable in their lives. If more people only knew how much was lost by those that signed the Declaration of Independence.
"Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance or the most abject submission."

"If you will not fight for right when you can win easily without bloodshed. . .
you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you.
There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."

How many words in the CFR? That's the real abomination. How many Americans even know what the CFR is?

Sad.

Thanks for mentioning it. I didn't know it either so I put it in search engine and found that it is the Code of Federal Regulations. It must be massive now that Nancy Pelosi has invented an easy way for taxpayers to become slaves to her party with no chance of a differing view brought forth. She has laws written up that take a ream of paper for the opposition to think about 20 minutes before voting yea or nay. It's sneaky, disloyal and takes money from taxpayers who have no say and no one to talk to about funding what they know is infanticide and they have to give up their beliefs to crater to this theater. :rolleyes-41:
