The Constitutionality Crisis
An overview of this site
The meaning of "Constitutional"
This site is concerned with the Constitution for The United States of America — the U.S. Constitution — and thus we define 'constitutional' as: being in accordance with, or authorized by the United States Constitution. Thus, when we speak of 'unconstitutional' laws, we refer to laws that are not in accordance with nor authorized by the United States Constitution. References to 'government' mean the federal government of the United States.
This site examines the Constitutionality Crisis facing the United States of America and suggests an approach for restoring Constitutional government. The federal government routinely violates constitutionally-protected rights of both its citizens and of the states making up the union. The legislative, executive and judicial branches of the federal government are all guilty. We are to the point where government sees no practical limits on its actions. Unless something is done — and soon — the United States of America is doomed as a republic. In compressed form, here's what this site covers.
The problem can be remedied, but only by changing the way we pass laws and the way we determine whether laws are in fact Constitutional or not. To understand what's needed to fix this very broken system, we must first understand how we got into this mess in the first place.
Three Critical Questions

The answers to the above questions are these:
Ask any 'Constitutional Scholar' the above three questions and you should get the same three answers. Given the foregoing three irrefutable facts, it is reasonable to conclude that the power to review federal laws and regulations as either being in accordance with the Constitution or not is a power "...reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Two More Questions
If the drafters and ratifiers of the Constitution could have foreseen the size and scope of the current federal government:
There are, of course, no "right" or "wrong" answers to the last two questions. I offer them simply to get you thinking about what it was the Founding Fathers intended.
