Thus, we enter the age of constitutional globalization

Again, if folks want to be governed in a certain way, go to a country that has that form of government. I want to live in the country that respects the Federal Republic devised for us by the Founding Fathers, protected by the Constitution as properly amended. Where elected representatives are servants of the voters, and remember their true function.

Why do so many love to hide behind the freedoms of this Country, while working to bring down the instruments that protect those freedoms?

Then when those who believe as I do band together, we are ridiculed, threatened and held up as enemies of the state. Our observations and arguments are brushed aside as irrelevant.

Washington warned a two party system would degenerate into a single entity, with loyalty to the party rather than the Constitution becoming the supreme goal of the special interest groups. Application of power to control the citizens brought to bare, instead of application of the Constitution to help the citizens pursue Life, Liberty, and Happiness.

As Moses, or rather Arron, said to pharaoh, "Thus saith the Lord, let My people go."

The ‘Future We Want’

“On the eve of a historic Governing Council for UNEP, the High Level Meeting on the Rule of Law and the Environment brought together eminent Ministers of the Environment and government representatives with Chief Justices, Heads of Jurisdiction, Attorneys General, Auditors General, Chief Prosecutors, and other high-ranking representatives of the judicial, legal and auditing professions as well as representatives of partner organizations to discuss important recent developments, challenges and new opportunities regarding the rule of law in the field of the environment and how the rule of law can be promoted for greater effect in the quest for environmental sustainability, sustainable development and social justice.”

Participants reiterated that the rule of law at national and international levels can make a significant contribution toward forging an enduring partnership between the environment and development founded on ecological and social sustainability. Judging by the continuing trajectory of rapid environmental degradation and natural resource depletion, it was, however, universally recognized that its full potential had yet to be realized. Recognizing environmental law as a foundation for environmental sustainability and realizing its full potential was ever more urgent in the view of the participants on our quest towards sustainable development and new economic growth, but also towards just and fair societies vis-à-vis growing environmental pressures.

Through the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development and UNEP’s World Congress on Justice, Governance and Law for Environmental Sustainability, both held in June 2012, the rule of law in environmental matters had received new affirmation. Through the World Congress, for example, over 250 of the world’s Chief Justices, Attorneys General and Auditors General seized a generational opportunity to contribute to the debates on the environment and that any diplomatic outcomes related to the environment and sustainable development, including from Rio+20, would remain unimplemented without adherence to the rule of law, without open, just and dependable legal orders.

The ‘Future We Want’, the outcome document of Rio+20, was cited as reaffirming the central role to be played by the rule of law on the path towards sustainable development and as a prerequisite for a successful transition to greener economies.

National judiciaries played therefore a crucial role in ensuring fairness and equity in the implementation of policies to further sustainable development.
Participants also discussed the themes of the meeting against the recently adopted Resolution by the UN General Assembly on the Rule of Law (A/RES/67/1) which underlines the importance of fair, stable and predictable legal frameworks for generating inclusive, sustainable and equitable development and maintaining peace and security, as well as a report on advancing justice, governance and law for environmental sustainability by the Executive Director of UNEP to the first universal session of UNEP’s GC.GMEF, which immediately followed the meeting (UNEP/GC.27/13).

Participants underlined repeatedly that individually and together, these important outcomes of recent international processes and developments had the potential to aid governments in making significant strides in making societies more just, enhance the rule of law and promote environmental sustainability.
The High-Level Meeting identified key solutions and actions needed, by a reformed UNEP and the universal membership of its governing body following Rio+20 and the World Community at large to achieve these objectives.
The strong linkages between sustainable development and the rule of law, such as the negative effects of transnational organized crime (including environmental crime) need to be made more explicit through the work of UNEP and beyond.
The mutually supportive relationship between the adherence to the rule of law and the respect for all human rights, including those related to the environment, must be better explored and utilized for the benefit of both fields.
 Access to justice in environmental matters is an important step towards environmental justice. It should be further promoted at all levels along with new and emerging principles, such as the non-regression in environmental law.
Public involvement in promoting environmental rights and capacity building in environmental law is important.
More focus must be placed on capacity building to advance environmental justice and to effect change and promote environmental justice. UNEP and the International Advisory Council on Environmental Justice have a key role to play in this as well as in promoting dialogue with policymakers on the legal framework to advance the outcomes of Rio+20 and the World Congress on Justice, Governance and Law for Environmental Sustainability.
A web based tool as well as a journal should be developed to provide and share information on jurisprudence decisions and with specific focus on the rule of law and the environment as well as in order to stimulate further debate on these issues.
UN wide initiatives concerning the rule of law and also the discussion surrounding the post 2015 development agenda in which the environmental rule of law should benefit from an integration of and focus on environmental justice and rule of law in the field of the environment more broadly."

Sounds great*, where is this place?

If only people actually were "free" to just leave, and be cut loose from the chains of the state which claims ownership over them. Try just "leaving" the usa. They claim they still own your income, no matter where you are in the world.

*Ok, not really, doesn't sound "great" at all. “But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.”
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

Not if you renounce your citizenship, I imagine. My mom has a friend who expatriated herself to Ireland several years ago. I'm pretty sure she doesn't pay (and isn't expected to pay) U.S. Income tax.

Heard a great line on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" this week:

"The government of today has no right telling us how to live our lives because the government of 200 years ago already did."

Cute, but not so much. The rules that the government of 200(+) years ago laid out that still affect us were pretty much rules of limitation on themselves. So, yeah, the government of 200 years ago set rules that (to varying extents) we still go along with, but most of them don't "tell us how to live our lives.". That's mostly a much more modern invention. Or as one writer put it:

"America was a nation that basically said to its citizens: "Your forefathers have given you freedom, so good luck, see you around, hope you make it."
"Torture doesn't work" lol

Anarchy! That's the ticket! Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.
