To the Editor,
I am disappointed by civil/government officials/agents abusing the privileges they have been entrusted with. Such activities are direct violations of the Supreme Law, which is constitutional.
The county library has rules prohibiting children in the computer room, and children unattended by an adult elsewhere. Librarians have never been authorized with making these rules, yet they are quick to deprive parents of their unalienable right to manage themselves and their children.
City policemen harass citizens at a local gazebo because a misinformed janitor posted ‘no loitering’ signs on public land. Police derive their power through delegation from the Mayor and have no more authority than other private security agencies.
Public entities are empowered by the people through representatives and agents and charged with certain limited responsibilities. i.e., the librarian is charged with managing books, the Mayor is charged with managing city property, etc.
James Madison wrote, “government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any.” [Federalist #14]
Clerks, cashiers, and business owners also abuse their roles by refusing services/products because of misinterpreted statutes. No law will ever subjugate the American Citizen regardless of how society dislikes a different lifestyle.
The problem is ignorance; the solution is information. The truth is in the law, read it. Help restore America’s liberties, stop the abuse.
