Proverbs 22:3 NLT

A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.

Madison Gave America Outline to Handle Government

Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, special Obamacare exemptions, thousands of Executive Orders... The list of problems seems endless yet the President contends Congress has taken its "eye off the ball" in order to focus on these "phony scandals".
 
Isn't it amazing that America still is divided on these issues? Whether you support the President or not, whether you support Congress or not; the staggering list of unprecedented misuse and abuse of power currently ongoing in Washington cries for a mass protest by Americans across the country. Not armed warfare but protest.
 
James Madison told us how in Federalist Papers No. 46. The then-future President of the United States wrote directly to the people of the State of New York and connected to the theme he first began in No. 45. But he was more explicit in 46.
 
He opens: "...I proceed to inquire whether the federal government or the State governments will have the advantage with regard to the predilection and support of the people. Notwithstanding the different modes in which they are appointed, we must consider both of them as substantially dependent on the great body of the citizens of the United States. I assume the position here as it respects the first, reserving the proofs for another place. The federal and State governments are in fact but different agents and trustees of the people."
 
He has set the stage but in a very different tone from what we commonly think today. Notice, for instance, how he designates the greater authority not to the federal government but to the State officialdom simply by capitalizing the word 'State' not once but twice! Think about that aspect for a moment and how far we have drifted away from the concept of State powers.
 
Later in the lengthy second paragraph he writes: "They must be told that the ultimate authority, wherever the derivative may be found, resides in the people alone." He continues: "Truth, no less than decency, requires that the event in every case should be supposed to depend on the sentiments and sanction of their common constituents."
 
With all due respect to our elected idiots in Washington and the various State capitols, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE POWER, it resides with 'We the People'.
 
Madison caps it all in the sixth paragraph of his writing. He penned: "On the other hand, should an unwarrantable measure of the federal government be unpopular in particular States (again the power is with the States over the federalists), which would seldom fail to be the case, or even a warrantable measure be so, which may sometimes be the case, the means of opposition to it are powerful and at hand. The disquietude of the people; their repugnance and, perhaps, refusal to cooperate with the officers of the Union; the frowns of the executive magistracy of the State; the embarrassments created by legislative devices, which would often be added on such occasions, would oppose, in any State, difficulties not to be despised; would form, in a large State, very serious impediments; and where the sentiments of several adjoining States happened to be in unison, would present obstructions which the federal government would hardly be willing to encounter."
 
Now obviously he envisioned compromise rather than a Civil War. But a compromise mostly ceded by the federal government to the State government. We know that is not the case today.
 
However, Mr. Madison was himself willing to go to war and expected his fellow citizens who also thought like him to be willing to do the same. His version was "refusal to cooperate with the officers of the Union."
 
He was helping to set up a government but also firmly entrenching the power of the government with the people and the people alone. He exalted the powers of the State government above the power of the federal government.
 
He did not expect our State governments to bow and throw off their mantle of authority for the sake of federal monetary assistance. A true State government, by Madison standards, would have shoved any and all unpopular regulations attached to a monetary handout back down Washington's (even George's) throat. Such a State would disbar any federal agent from setting foot inside its borders again until such 'repugnant' authority was removed.
 
This includes the IRS, NTSB, AFT, FBI, the irrational Circuit Court system or the spittle-licking sycophants who hang around our State-elected representatives to Washington. Homeland Security was as foreign a concept to Madison as it could be because he was a FREE CITIZEN capable of taking care of himself, his family and aiding his neighbors as he chose.
 
The difference is the Founding Fathers were men who had such a true belief they were willing to go into harm's way. They didn't merely sit in front of the TV and protest, nor did they play video games while complaining. They stepped into the front lines against the strongest government in the world.
 
In today's world, which government should we be opposing?
