Watch 14th Amendment Debt Ceiling and Althusius’ Federalism on Rumble, Brighteon or YouTube

14th Amendment Debt Ceiling

In my studies of the 14th Amendment, it was easy to conclude that over the last 100 plus years, the original intent of this amendment was hijacked by nefarious and idealogical miscreants. I focus on Section 4 which states:

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

I’m giving the quick analysis of this but as you read it over a number of times, you should be asking: how can the executive branch use the first sentence in justifying the raising of the debt ceiling? Second, as a teaser for future discussions, how does the last sentence allow for reparations?

12-6-14 Program: Why the Anti-federalist Are the Constitutional Interpreters?

This week I elaborate on how many of the Colonist actually knew the law and understood the English Constitution in great detail.  The Colonist were for the most part highly literate and understood law not just from a legalize perspective but from a Reformation Covenant perspective.

We will also discuss what the Founders intended for education was based on what they learned and what has been left out of the modern political science conversation completely: The Anti-federalists are in fact the final determiners of Constitutional interpretation, Not the Federalist Paper!  Find out why by listening to this Program.
