Blue State Constitutions
Blue State Constitutions? Really? Blue States have Constitutions?
I know that it is hard to believe that States line California and New York actually have ‘State Constitutions.’ One would think that they are just extensions of the federal government bureaucracies and the D.C. Swamp. Well, in a Hamiltonian way they have become that consolidated, assimilated region of the Federal Government.
Believe it or not, the State Constitutions of California and New York have a Bill of Rights as their ‘first’ article. This is significant. Not only that, but the number of sections in theses constitutions is telling about what the Citizens of those states can claim.
Californians have the capacity to reform their state on the basis of Article I. New York not so much. I discuss this in the first segment.
Corporatism Corrupts State Constitutions:
My focus for this weeks program is only on two of the Blue States, it is clear by all the policies that California and New York have done away with any Article I, their Bill of Rights, Citizen authority from their State Constitutions. The only thing remaining operational in those ‘covenants’ with the people are the processes of government. But that is another discussion for another day.
What is clear by the definitions from Last Weeks Program ( https://bit.ly/3lmjcJh ), is that local, national and global corporatism is the mechanisms of governing in these two Blue States.
The challenge to all in those state is to read, learn and act according to their Article I: Bill of Rights from their State Constitution.
