Nobody talks about common laws anymore. We should because the true balance of power in a Democracy is the distinction between common law and statutory law. Does that balance still exist? No, because with each passing day the principles and values upon which the United States was founded are being eroded. Federal and judicial manipulation has made the Constitution/Bill of Rights nearly irrelevant.

As Americans, we are the most powerful citizens in the world. We can choose our own representatives. We can choose to acquire as much knowledge as we desire. We can choose to worship God in our own way. We can choose to turn our ideas into reality. We have opportunities tha went undreamt of before 1776 and unrealized in much of the world today. We have the power to choose an environment that encourages respect and integrity.

For 200 years people had the protection of the Constitution/Bill of Rights. We educated our children, we exercised our religion, we had the freedom to speak our minds, we had property rights, we could not be subjected to double jeopardy, and the states had authority. We had common laws. For 200 years we were a people.

Times have changed. We have lost that power. States must educate our children in a costly federally mandated manner, our property rights are controlled by tax laws and use constraints, and when and where we choose to exercise our beliefs is governed. We may not voice objections openly or express our opinion unless it is "politically correct." We are tried on the state and federal levels for the same crime, and the states' Constitutional power has been suspended by overreaching federal power.

Our common laws and choices are now bound by federal dictate that is enlarged upon by lawyers, courts, bureaucrats, politicians and special interests with every passing day. We have lost our "democratic" privileges and rights.

What has this to do with our children? Everything.

If we continue to let the government usurp the power of the people, our children will never enjoy the freedoms the Founding Fathers won for us.
