For you to determine how well you understand some of the currently practical fundamentals of what the founders understood the Constitution to be, look below at these 10 very relevent questions about the Constitution and try to answer them. The answers are at the bottom.

  1. Do you know whether we’re a Federal or a National government and how that affects the constitutionality of various bills or programs?
  2. Do you know how the Constitution, “express a silent silent?”
  3. Is a gold standard a specific requirement in the Constitution?
  4. Is the income tax Constitutional?
  5. Does the United States government even have legal authority to exist in its present form?
  6. Since a majority of States have declared in their Constitutions that Obamacare is unconstitutional, it is therefore legally _____________ by the States, and every State and court in America has a right and duty to rebel against this law.
  7. Does the United States have the authority to engage in any regulations whatsoever in private business?
  8. Does the United States have legal authority to establish or maintain a central bank like the Federal Reserve?
  9. Where do States rights come from?
  10. Does the U.S. government have the authority to take over a State in times of crisis?


  1. We are a Federal, not a National government, volumes can and have been written on the practicalities of this subject so I won’t get into that here seeing as it’s to complex for a short answer.
  2. As the American Blackstone pointed out as to the normal rules of Constitutional construction, “expressum facit tacere tacitum”. This was further supported by Madison in Fed 45.
  3. Yes, under Article 1 Section 8.
  4. No, despite the 16th. amendment it is still unconstitutional, for it violates the Federal compact which is the root of the U.S. governments authority.
  5. No, for the 17th. amendment legally null and voids all authority for the Federal government to exist until such time as the proper Federal forms are put into place, for coetus principatum pendet in membra, or as George Nicholas said in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, “representation is the corner-stone on which the whole depends.”
  6. Nullified.
  7. No.
  8. Not at all.
  9. The simple fact that we are a Federal government.
  10. Yes, if the State is in such a crisis that it has lost its sovereignty.
