Law: A rule of conduct, recognized by
or decreed by formal enactment, considered as
binding by members of a community, nation, etc.

Our forefathers when founding this
nation, were very careful when they put together the first laws to govern
the United States of America. They were so careful in fact that they left,
what our learned law professors and modern practitioners at the bar would
call, gaping holes in the laws and constitution. The have fixed this in
modern times by creating their own law and replacing both the legislative
and the executive branches of the government by simply legislating from
In fact through all the branches of government we have just about
out-lawed ourselves to the point that the laws of these United States of
America are again nothing but a group of loop holed rules that apply to
just about nothing.
In just the past few months the government has passed legislation that was
so inept even before it was publicly known, they were hastily going back
to pass more laws to cover up the problems created by last weeks law.
Well, you say, "if you are going to knock our government so much, why
don’t you come up with a better plan."
I am so glad you asked me that and it just so happens I have the answer.
The problem with the answer is that it is so simple the government will
just throw it out. In fact they already have. The problem they would face
with my solution now is the same problem that happened before. That is the
"what if" reasoning. You see when a bunch of lawyers set around and talk
about law they always have the "what if" coming up. No matter how simple
the problem, no matter how simple the solution, they are always going to
have a "what if". That is exactly where we got ourselves to today and in
the mess we are in.
The solution, as simple as it is, goes back to the days when the nation of
Israel was leaving Egypt. They had left the civilization of Egypt and its
laws behind to follow this guy called Moses. They were camped at the foot
of a mountain called Sinai. The people wanted some order and some
government. So Moses went up on the mountain and the God gave Moses the
law. Not the volumes and volumes that we find on the shelves of law
offices today but ten simple laws that would be enough to serve and govern
the people of Israel and for that matter the world. In just a few pages of
the Bible not only did God give us ten perfect laws that would be enough
law for any nation but in just a few pages He took care of all the "what
Our government who is supposed to be the model for the whole world came to
see these laws as religious and with that have thrown out those laws and
find them offensive.
I will not list those laws here. You can Google them or you can look them
up in the Bible and use your common sense to see that those laws are
perfect and that all the laws of all the nations of the civilized world
are taken from those ten simple laws. The problem is that the "what ifs"
have become the law and the real laws account for nothing.
Maybe what we need to do is the opposite of what the government has done
and throw out all the laws that have been enacted in these United States
of America and pile them up in a heap in front of the Supreme Court
building and set them on fire. After that have the justices take those ten
laws given by God and put them up on the wall behind the bench and say
these are the laws which will govern this nation from this day forth.
But they will not, because the laws of God are too precise, too clear, and
would put a lot of ‘what if" people our of work. There used to be a saying
that went, "when guns are outlawed only outlaws would own guns". How about
"when we out law ourselves, only outlaws will have the law."
