Original US Constitution

THIS ONLINE RESOURCE resurrects the long forgotten Spirit of the Original US Constitution. A conceptual summary is below, followed by a simple-english version of the US Constitution’s original text, easily translated into 180 world languages for easy study and adaptation into your native land.

Below, you’ll also find out why the Spirit of the Constitution has been hijacked, misrepresented, and eliminated from public knowledge. You’ll learn why it is no longer honored by Washington, and why it is hated by so many popular public figures. 

The US Constitution has been the subject of highly targeted attacks and defamation. For this to be the case, it must be considered a significant threat to someone or something. One must ask why.

The reason is this: the ability of the US Constitution to disrupt the deeply corrupt, global ruling class is monumental, so the ruling class must attack and destroy it to protect itself. We are about to discover why they are so threatened. Let’s begin.

The Original Vision

Contrary to popular belief, the US Constitution is radically visionary. Exactly as written in 1787, and inspired by early Native American society structures, the US Constitution reigns as the most free and liberal, diverse and progressive blueprint for society the world has ever seen. It is so rapidly progressive, in fact, it is quite literally the formula for the discovery of utopia (heaven on earth).

How can this be? For starters, the Constitution takes Power from the corrupt Ruling Class, and returns it back to The People. The society built by the Constitution is the pure opposite of all the world’s top-down Governments, where a few wealthy elites dictate to the masses. 

In a unique fashion, the US Constitution builds a society from the ground up instead. Just like with the early Native American tribes, society starts first with the *free and sovereign*, divinely inspired Human Spirit (the fountainhead of creativity) and radiates outward as Individuals work synergistically in Community.

All power is given to Local Government; the Federal Government (Washington) is explicitly designed to be silent.

Just like a science experiment, the Original US Constitution unleashes millions of diverse hearts and minds, working together in thousands of unique local communities, to find sensitive solutions to society’s toughest challenges in policing, housing, education, childcare, entrepreneurship, healthcare and more.

With millions of creative individuals and thousands of local communities involved in discovery, the Constitution then unleashes the Scientific Process to test ideas, compare results, and make quick and steady, incremental progress toward society’s rapid evolution.  Test, compare, improve.

Communities with the best solutions will become the popular leaders (Texas), and live on to influence other communities. Communities with weak ideas or corrupt practice (California) will wither away as individuals “vote with their feet” by moving to communities that prove to work better.

In other words, The US Constitution (propelled by Amendment X: States Rights), creates a free-market for ideas on society’s evolution. It empowers each and every unique Human Spirit to participate in the creative Scientific Process for the explicit purpose of society’s rapid enlightenment.

Progress and Science is the heart and soul of the Original US Constitution. When we finally start to employ it in this way (we never have yet), mankind will rapidly propel itself into a blissful state of enlightenment. Just imagine what the future will hold.

The Hijack

For those of us dedicated to Progress and Science, it is important to understand this: True Progress cannot occur without the Scientific Process of testing ideas, comparing them against the archive of tradition, and adjusting incrementally in the direction of success. 

With that said, when we look to Washington as the sole provider of solutions, as today’s so-called “Progressives” want us to do, we forfeit the Scientific Process completely. A one-size-fits-all “solution” installed by Washington, leaves no room for creativity, no testing, no comparisons, no respect for the wisdom of tradition, and no objective advancement. Curiously, this is the opposite of Progress.

In fact, since there are no competing ideas to compare to Washington’s “solutions”, foul ideas may never be discovered. If one foul idea is installed on a nation for decades without comparison or repeal (child gender reassignment laws, in the name of equality, for example), generations of a nation’s people could be left physically and psychologically crippled. Not only is this the opposite of progress, it is also suspiciously self-destructive. How can this be?

Progress and evolution is a valiant code to live by. After all, it represents the natural and miraculous unfolding of life. Like a moth to a flame, mankind acting in the direction of Progress is an incredibly powerful force of nature…. so powerful, in fact, the word “Progress” actually becomes prime target for being hijacked. 

Whoever flies the flag of “Progress!” wields extraordinary power… for better or for worse. In the deceptive hands of the ruling class, “Progress” cloaks a campaign of control, abuse, subjugation and destruction of The Common People for the elite’s own corruptive gain. It is wise to investigate Progressive leaders carefully, for they are not as they seem.

True Champions of Progress stand behind the Constitution. 

Logic and Structure

The US Constitution is the opposite of a typical Top-Down Government. It builds a society from the ground up, instead.

The free and sovereign Individual is considered the fountainhead of divine creativity. Therefore, Law and Society is designed to flow in this order: From the Individual first, out to the Family, Community, County, State, and then Nation.

The Federal Government is only given 3 very limited powers: protect the States from harm, represent them abroad, and handle disputes between States, should they arise.

All other powers are reserved explicitly for the States or the People (Amendment X: States Rights). Under no conditions is the Federal Government involved in cultural decisions.

In fact, the Federal Government is designed to be only a silent and protective Dome over the “ecosystem” of thousands of local communities, and 50 unique States.

This protected Ecosystem sets the stage for the most diverse, creative, tolerant, cooperative, abundant, and progressive society to ever exist for mankind.

Each State maintains its own legislature, and its own Constitution. The legislature creates its Living Constitution as the blueprint to their States’ ideal Society.

Empowered with its own Constitution, each State can be totally unique. States may employ their own custom blends of socialism and capitalism if they believe it beneficial to their constituents’ objectives.

With that said, Citizens are always free to leave for another State if an experimental idea fails. The Constitution makes it safe to fail, which makes it safe to experiment with new ways of self-governance at the local, county and state level.

Each State’s “Living Constitution” can evolve with time and experience, whereas the US Constitution is not to be changed without the formal and stringent process of Amendments.

Contrary to popular belief, the cornerstone of the US Constitution is actually States Rights (Amendment X :: Local Governance), not Democracy or Separation of Powers.

Once States Rights takes effect, Democracy and Separation of Powers then applies to the Federal Government, to even further protect the Citizens from Federal abuse of power.

Three branches make up the Federal Government: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. Separation of Powers is the main content of the body of the US Constitution, which we now will illustrate below. Thank you.
