Let’s begin where we are now. I will be posting practical information for dealing with education, preparedness and political survival. (Realize that I have been exposed to the writings of William O. Douglas, William J. Brennan and Laurence H. Tribe–this means I have a broad interpretation of my parameters.) I have been watching the government in action since the early sixties and I tend to remember a lot which turns up at the oddest times and occasionally slips by where it might be appropriate. I also see trends leading toward a concentration of power in the unelected. I will be discussing origins of terms we use and in relation to statutory or constitutional language, I believe the language as understood at the time of adoption prevails,
I also will bring in a broad spectrum that is the result of a liberal arts education and studies beyond the walls of academe and government. I hate walls that exclude ideas and thoughts. I would, however, restrict the powers of government in favor of the rules of society. I believe in free will, which means my actions are not pre-ordained.
Like Horatio I am a Roman. But I follow the Cato who defended the Republic, not his ancestor who set the Republic on the course that ended in Empire.
