Tim Utz's Views on Federal and State Constitutions
America has a unique form of government relative to the world. America has a constitutional republic form of government, not a democracy as many a political leader will say.
Over the United States history, the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, Articles of Confederation, United States Constitution, and the Minnesota State Constitution have provided the foundation of our governing society. Take an afternoon, visit the links provided, and read our National and State governing documents.
Our society depends on elected officials' compliance to the Rule of Law as described in the above-mentioned documents. Yet for years, elected officials and the courts continually interpret or just ignore the governing Rule of Law. I have an idea why elected officials drift so far from our foundational moorings--ultimate power.
Government, through the legislative, executive and judicial bodies, is clearly limited in its powers by constitutional law. The conduct, voting records and rulings of officials indicate otherwise. “We the People” are responsible for the mess our leadership exhibits. We have left our knowledge of the Rule of Law governing the conduct of our elected officials and have not replaced them for misconduct.
Under the Rule of Law “We the People,” through exercising our right to vote, have ultimate power of retarding our repressive government. I seek your vote this November for Minnesota House of Representatives District 50-A, and a return of state government to accountable constitutional Rule of Law.
