The Real Meaning of the Clinton Decision

Play

Darrell Castle discusses how the rule of law and the right of the people to govern themselves are in grave danger.


THE REAL MEANING OF THE CLINTON DECISION

Hello, this is Darrell Castle with today’s podcast. Today is Friday, July 8, 2016, and on today’s podcast we are going to discuss the death not only of the rule of law, but of the people’s ability to govern themselves.  I’m not going to rehash the information that you already know about James Comey’s press conference in which he said essentially that there was evidence of broken laws, which would have been prosecuted in others but not in one of our Royalty.  That is a rough paraphrase but accurate.  What I intend to discuss is what the actions of Mrs. Clinton, and what Mr. Comey said about those actions, really mean.

Original Intent

Play

Darrell Castle argues that the original intent of the U.S. Constitution is still relevant today but it is poorly understood and never applied.

Original Intent

CR-web-OriginalIntentToday we are going to discuss the original intent of the United States Constitution. This is relevant for our discussion because I am the Constitution Party’s candidate for President of the United States and the Constitution Party was formed originally by a group of people who believed that the original intent of the United States Constitution is still relevant today and can be defended intellectually to the nation.

How could the founders imagine, let alone prepare for the possibility that the United States might abandon the correct method of constitutional interpretation (i.e. original intent) and with it abandon the rule of law in general. Today not only has original intent been abandoned but it is not understood by the average American who looks on the mention of it as extremely right wing or at best simplistic.

No judges employ it, and no lawyers argue it. It is not desired by any politicians or by their special interest groups for whom the Constitution’s quaint words and phrases serve only as a cover story for what best lines their pockets. Continue reading

The Most Important Part of the Constitution

Play

Darrell Castle discusses Article 1, Section 1 of the United States Constitution and argues that it is most important.

The Most Important Part of the Constitution

CR-Web-Article1Section1I am often asked by the media in interviews and by the public in question and answer sessions “What is the most important part of the Constitution?”

All of the Constitution is important and a good argument could be made for many sections, including the Bill of Rights, but I believe Article I Section I is most important. “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

With that beginning sentence The Constitution vests all policy making and law making authority of the federal government in congress. The term “vested” means that Congress cannot lawfully surrender or reassign its authority. The vesting of all legislative authority in a congress answerable to “We the People” is perhaps the bedrock premise of our legal system.
