How Guaranteeing Our Inalienable Rights is so Important

Our Founding Fathers guaranteed to American citizens the right to "Lift, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" because the Constitution sets up a framework that has the capacity to end conflict. It treats everyone fairly and equally, enables everyone to get the life they want and gives people a voice in their government. They didn't tell people what to do, but gave people their rights and then put responsibility into the hands of the people.

When the Founding Fathers came together, it was a time of revolution. Think of how guaranteeing those rights made it possible for peace to prevail. No one would be left out of the framework. What obstructed the movement were those who relied on the old structure for their security and support. The old structure had to collapse by demonstrating it was in no one's best interest for it to continue on, and the new structure had to be rising in power--by the true definition of power. Power comes from assuming responsibility to undo the damage we have done, not by grabbing for power because we believe we don't have it.

Once again we are in a time of revolution. This time, the Constitution is going global, and the rebellion is against the power games, because the games are oppressive to the people.

The first two proposals are US proposals.

The Exit Strategy for Iraq looks at the power grab President George W. Bush perpetrated against Saddam Hussein, and while for many people it seemed like the right thing to do at the time, it went against Universal Law, international law, and federal law, which is based on the premise that someone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. It denied the Iraqi people their inalienable rights.

The Constitutional can only guarantee our inalienable rights to Americans. Then it becomes a matter of foreign policy how our president and State Department apply the principles that are expressed in the Constitution. No one is above the law. On Monday, December 12th, an Iraqi woman will present her case in the US Court of Appeals declaring George W. Bush perpetrated an unlawful act of aggression against Iraq. She is using the Chilcot Report as the basis for her case. She is setting the stage for our Exit Strategy for Iraq proposal to be accepted.

Our Constitution grants people the right to take our government to court, granted us rights people of other nations can only dream about, but it is our Creator that grants our inalienable rights to every person on the planet. We are all citizens of the Universe and all subject to Universal Law. When a government denies our inalienable rights granted to us by our Creator, they are fighting the Universe and cannot win.

To end the conflict around the world, we all must understand that power games don't enable us to get power, and that true power comes from assuming responsibility to undo the damage we have done. We must understand that no one has the right to deny us our inalienable rights granted to us by our Creator, and that no nation, in God's eyes, has greater rights than another. We must all understand that no one has the right to leave another individual or nation out of the framework based on our rights or we risk losing our own rights.

As this court case plays out in the news....

If this court case is swept under the proverbial rugs to insure that America doesn't lose face, the global conflict will only get worse. Saving face is the power game of Pride, which leads to wars.

The Constitutional Amendment proposal allows the United States to assume responsibility to undo the damage we have done, and therefore regain the power we lost by waging an unlawful war. This is our opportunity to end the conflict and to become part of the framework based on the principles of the cooperation of nature. We will demonstrate to the rest of the planet how our Constitution can keep the peace by guaranteeing to each individual our inalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
