Request From Readers

Reader Ken adds to Judge Napolitano’s list of “what ifs”:

What if Fox were really, “fair and balanced”?

What if a large percentage of the military realized their oath is to the Constitution rather than their superiors or even the President?

What if enough of us believe the 10th Amendment is still relevant?

What if We the People began living as though, “In God We Trust” were more than just words?

What if the feds would decide to let the South go its own way peacefully this time?

What if true Liberty could be given just one more chance to exist on the faceof the Earth?

How about other readers submitting their own “what ifs?” I will collect them and publish the better ones. Send them in.

  1. What if Fox were really, “fair and balanced”? —– who cares

    What if a large percentage of the military realized their oath is to the Constitution rather than their superiors or even the President? —- the military is a paid military, bring the draft back and the entire answer changes, but for now they answer as an employee to the employer.

    What if enough of us believe the 10th Amendment is still relevant?——- It would inhibit integration. Some states would not be tolerable.

    What if We the People began living as though, “In God We Trust” were more than just words? —- Wouldn’t work everybody puts a different hat on their God.

    What if the feds would decide to let the South go its own way peacefully this time? — What race would the slaves be?

    What if true Liberty could be given just one more chance to exist on the faceof the Earth? —- One mans liberty is another mans infringement.

    1. I care about Fox. At least I did until the day they fired the Judge.

      The military is not an employee-employer relationship. I spent much of my adult life in uniform and have held several civilian jobs both prior and since. None of the civilian jobs had as a condition of employment the requirement to take a sacred oath to protect and defend the Constitution or anything else.

      So you apparently do not support the Constitution including the 10th Amendment. The relationship of States to Federal is as creator to created. The feds Constitutionally are limited in their just responsibilities and powers and the States are supposed (originally were) superior and quite different one from another. If one State were not “tolerable” to you, you would be free to move to a tolerable State as was originally intended by the States which ratified the Constitution.

      Not even close to true. This nation (and indeed the original separate and sovereign States) were founded on Christian principles. It was widely recognized that the Creator who granted us our “unalienable rights” deals with nations as well as indviduals. So while provision for individuals to be free to deny the Creator Himself, there was no allowance for disputing the principles themselves. Your god may wear a different hat than mine but the foundation of our government was based on the instructions for living handed down by my God.

      Are you historically challenged or just a product of today’s public indoctrination centers? The War for Southern Independence-often incorrectly referred to as a Civil War- did not originate over the issue of slavery but rather the principle of the supremacy of the States over the federal government. The outcome is a prime example of why might does not make right and Lincoln’s evisceration of the Constitution was a giant leap foward in the decline of our Republic.

      Sigh. So little time, so much ignorance. True Liberty is the freedom to act as I see fit up to the point that it infringes on your Liberty. The most common example given being that my right to swing my fist stops short of your nose. One man cannot- as you said- act within the limits of his rightful Liberty and infringe on another. To put it in a Christian context, citizens should be at Liberty to act according to their conscience and the moral dictates of the founding principles. Not quite what we have today with the feds interfering with every aspect of our lives. Some egregious examples being I am “lawfully” required to help fund the murder of unborn children, fund public schools which teach immorality is normal and forced to contribute to the welfare state as if the Constitution authorized some level of federal charity. I urge you to read a short book titled, “The Law” by Frederic Bastiat.
