904. My Eighth Summary About Benjamin Franklin
I have learned that the U.S. Congress has never applied The Declaration Of Independence. (DOI) Nor has the DOI been improved because Congress says that the DOI has no laws. I say that the DOI has laws and that the DOI and that the Constitution must always be more perfect. Below, James Cimmins informs us how the U.S. Congress built the USA wrongly.
James Cummins said that a swelling American population played a large part in the decision Americans made to head west. According to America’s second census in 1800, the U.S. population numbered 5.3 million. By the seventh census, in 1850, the population had quadrupled to 23.2 million. It’s been estimated that between 1820 and 1850, four million Americans moved west. In the first half of the 19th century especially, Americans were mainly farmers who needed arable land for their crops and livestock, land that was not available in the overcrowded and farmed-out east. There were, as well, financial panics (in 1818 and 1839) that uprooted people and sent them west seeking a fresh start.
The American government itself encouraged its citizens to move west, in large part by acquiring new territory from foreign powers. Thomas Jefferson’s 1803 Louisiana Purchase added 530,000,000 acres to America and the Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804-1806 revealed a land rich with promise for settlers. The United States aggressively continued it expansion by negotiating an 1846 agreement with Great Britain to cede the Oregon Territory (which included the present-day states of Oregon and Washington) to the United States. And the U.S. fought the Mexican-American War of 1846-47 in order to secure its hold on Texas and acquire California and much of the American southwest, opening these territories up to American settlers.
Some American citizens and government officials believed in the notion of “manifest destiny,” a term coined by journalist John L. O’Sullivan in 1845, which meant Americans were destined to control all the continental lands west to the Pacific, south to the Rio Grande, and north to Canada. But manifest destiny could also be a guise for opportunism. America’s expansion west was an expansion for merchants as well as farmers. California was known for its fertile land and, later, its rich gold fields, but American merchants wanted to acquire it for its Pacific ports. These allowed for American expansion into the Pacific Ocean for trade with China and Japan; eventually, the U.S. established a powerful American naval base in Hawaii.
America’s westward expansion in the later half of the 19th century included the quelling of Native American resistance and relocation of tribes to reservations, gold rushes, and the building of the Intercontinental Railroad. America was now ready to turn its expansionist ambitions abroad.
When Thomas Jefferson bought Louisiana from France in 1803, 530,000,000 acres were added to America. (click) However, this land led to a duel between Alexandria Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Burr wanted people to buy acres from government and sell them at higher prices, just as beavers are caught and are sold at higher prices at a store. However, Hamilton didn't want to use things in order to buy and sell things. Instead, he wanted to develop the Union of Louisiana and every 'one people' State. I say that Hamilton was making all States and humans equal. And, Burr was wrong. So, 'going West' became nothing other than buyers and sellers. According, the United States never developed a more perfect Union, which is defined in the Constitution Preamble. I also say that all human souls are created by God. I also say that God does not create human races. Thus, all humans, including Indians, are equal.
I conclude that most U.S. Congress members, many Presidents, and most judges of the Supreme Court hare not developing thee USA properly. So, the U.S. government should be abolished and reinstituted with many equal number of well developed scientists and lawyer. The reinstituted Government must become a duality of 'Society and Government,' in order to make The Declaration of Independence becomes more perfect.
