Abuses and Usurpations

Usurpation is the exercise of powers by an agent which have
not been delegated to him by the principal. In a constitutional
republiclike the United States of America, acts by officials are
legitimate only if they are consistent with and based on a constitution,
a body of laws which are superior to all subsequent statutes and other acts of
officials, which embodies all delegations of power, and which may
recognize certain rights to further define the limits on the powers
delegated. It is a fundamental principle that all acts of officials not derived
from the delegated powers of the constitution are null and void from
inception, not just from the point at which a court may find them
unconstitutional. Every person who has an encounter with the acts of officials
has the duty not only to obey legitimate official acts, but to help enforce
them, but, when there is a conflict among acts of officials, to enforce the
superior one, which, when an act of an official is in conflict with the
constitution, means enforcing the constitution and not the act in conflict with
it. Judges and other citizens do not decide constitutionality, but
discover it, and every person who is involved with any act by an
official has a nondelegatable duty to make a determination of the
constitutionality of that act. This determination is called constitutional
review, and, when exercised by a judge in a case, judicial review.
Since the ratification of the Constitution for the United States and each of
its properly ratified amendments, there have been numerous acts by officials,
including statutes, regulations, executive orders, court rulings, and ordinary
decisions and actions taken while on duty and under color of law, which have
been unconstitutional, and in many cases, in violation of civil rights of
persons and of constitutional laws. We will try to identify some of the worst
of such violations of the Constitution, and discuss how compliance with the
Constitution can be restored.

|Political corruption begins with every voter who votes his pocketbook
instead of for what's good for the country. There is little difference between
the selling of his vote by an elected official and the selling of his vote by a
voter, to whatever candidate promises him some benefit.

Abuse in general
Besides usurpations, there is a larger class of abuses which include
corruption and violations of constitutional statutes. It becomes a matter of
special concern to citizens when officials conspire with one another to not
enforce the law against such corruption, and use the resources of government
and the powers of their offices to cover up such crimes or otherwise protect
the perpetrators, whether such crimes are committed by officials themselves or
by powerful persons who are allowed to become a privileged class that is above
the law. When officials fail to enforce the law, citizens must step in and take
action to see that the laws are enforced, and replace those officials with
others who will do their constitutional duty.
