874. The U.S. Democracy Is Lost.
After ten years of discussions, on July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence (DOI) was signed by fifty six members of the Second Continental Congress by January 18, 1777. On January 2, 1781, the Second Continental Congress would come to its end, after thirteen States signed the Articles of Confederation. However, on May 25, 1787, the Articles of Confederation were revised.
On Sept. 17, 1787, the Constitution would be considered by thirty-nine delegates from the thirteen colonies. However, major problems emerged. These problems are (1) that the central government was given too much power; (2) that the central government's power was drawn from the Constitution as the supreme law of the land; and (3) that the Constitution did not contain guarantees of States' rights and individual liberties. Thus, on December 15, 1791 the first ten (Bill of Rights) Amendments were ratified.
When January 1, 2016 came, I noticed that 240 years have passed on the Declaration of Independence. I also noticed that it has never been perfected. In a letter, Senator John D. Rockefeller IV says that the DOI is not considered laws in the same sense that the Constitution is considered law, throughout our nation's history, it has been looked upon by the Supreme Court in order to frame the historical context of legal and constitutional issues.
This statement is incorrect because John Locke says in his work on The Second Treatise of Government,that human nature has two states: (1) the state of perfect freedom with full power and (2) the state of equality with equal power.
By not developing the DOI, the U.S. government is developing full power. Thus, the democracy of the USA is not developing. Accordingly, the State representatives of the Constitution have never become really functional on the DOI.
