ANCIENT PURPOSE OF GOVT: PRESERVING SOVEREIGNTY
Many States in the union are constitutionally instituted for the protection, security, benefit, and other natural rights of the people. Even in ancient times, kings used the notion that a people work together to justly reduce their hardship, but mostly to exploit social control within their territory. US CONST Art IV Sec 4 guarantees the republican form of government. The republican form of government is characterized by the elected representation of government by consent, the rule of law, and prohibitions on authoritarian forms of government. However, if a supermajority attempts to seek the kind of class-action relief for an injury that meets those very high criteria in court, we will be told that we can't 'because the law in question is interchangeable with the consent of the governed no matter what it says.' The case law is that it is not a "judicial prerogative" to remedy any very direct, communist-fascist legal injuries (Luther v. Borden, 1849). The problems with interpreting everything that our elected representatives pass into law as the very consent of the governed itself stand on their face. Our federal bureaucracy acts beyond its constitutional powers frequently, and the powers of the courts only ever extend as far as the law says as well, but they do not have the power to turn off or alter their role of adjudication like a switch. The precedent for "political questions" enables lawmakers to pass whatever special-interest policy universally against our consent that they want, which is common, and then for government to tell us we consented to it. What kind of evil is that? Therefore, we need to distribute entitlements to seek supermajority relief limited to the fundamental consent of the governed so government can no longer blindly obey "Nuremberg orders." We must clarify that the purpose of government is to remove significant hardships for citizens, not create them. We pay taxes for a return on them, not for them to be used against us. Furthermore, the Tenth Amendment is far more important than any of our primary school teachers made clear to us in refresher courses. If you read the amendment you will see it vests great power in the States and the people. Not only do the same words serve as substantive States rights and reserve powers, it describes the constitutional relationship between the parties of the union. The union is made up of three sovereign parties: the several States, the United States, and the people. Unfortunately, the term "the people" has become indistinct from government in the minds of many, which is so wrong because government is supposed to be instituted by the consent of the people: they are somewhat codependent but are not interdependently one in the same. Courts have interpreted every law passed as the consent of the governed no matter what, which is crazy, and State prosecutions are made directly in our name even though the content [and lack thereof] may not always reflect it. Legally, the sovereign, constitutional party known as "the people" has been taken hostage by the other two parties and is often used against us like a puppet. Therefore, we must take back our sovereignty and clarify the rules of reserved power. The doctrine of substantive nullification is simple: law and government actions must be derived from constitutional power, and if a policy is not, it is not law. On the other hand, if only express constitutional language delegated all constitutional powers and everything else could be reserved to the people, that could effectively nullify everything so there are no laws!
