Armstrong Economics Blog/Opinion Re-Posted Mar 5, 2021 by Martin Armstrong
I am so glad I left New Jersey. I have never been far-right, for I see the way the courts have moved and they have ended the substance of the Constitution. But the left is also an instance for they will not tolerate any dissent more than the right. To both extremes, they have lost the spirit of what the Constitution was all about. They have turned it upside-down and ignored the expressed intent as, not the creation of rights for We the People, but as a restraint upon government. Here is the text of the First Amendment. Note the “Congress shall make no law” does not say you have a right. Our rights are granted by our very existence. Governments exist ONLY by the will of the people. Historically, they ALWAYS abuse their power. This statement by Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey makes it clear that there is no restraint upon government; we have no choice but to comply. That is the very essence of tyranny.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The LEFT and the RIGHT both agree on one thing — more power. They will always arrive at tyranny, but for different reasons. We have lost all sense of what freedom was supposed to be — We the People.
