Reply To: Bill of Rights


The Bill Of Rights (Amendments 1-10) have ultimately failed. What if they had included a specific crime of usurpation by any member of the government claiming a power of the general government not explicitly granted? Where the usurpation was by the legislature any Congressmen or Senator who proposed, advocated or voted for any legislation not authorized by Article 1 could be indited by a state grant jury for the high crime of Usurpation and if found guilty would forfeit all his legal property and serve one year in prison. Similar viscous legal sanctions for executives and judicial officials could be written.
