  9. The Constitution was designed to control the national government, not to control the people.

  11. The Constitution was structured to recognize and protect separate and sometimes conflicting interests.
  12. The Formula For Freedom is found in the structure of the U.S. Constitution:
    • Limited, delegated powers. (Enumeration)
    • Vertical distribution of powers. (Federalism)
    • Horizontal separation of powers. (Separation)
    • Checks. (Bridle usurpation)
    • Balances. (Representation of all interests)
    • Secured rights. (Individual sovereignty)
  13. The Framers intelligently designed The United States of America to be a complex constitutional representative Republic not a Democracy.

  15. The 9th and 10th Amendments are the keystones to preserving Freedom.
  16. In order to retain the divinely inspired Constitution, the “Miracle at Philadelphia,” every generation must be educated in the divine science of government and be vigilant in its preservation.
