The Fifth Amendment

Below is the 5th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. How do they get around it? By calling it a time of “public danger”. Because they say so. For as long as they say so. Based on “science” that changes daily and with often fudged or distorted numbers. “It’s a pandemic”, they scream. They will be saying that six months from now, and a year from now. What then?

5th Amendment:

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

  1. It would be worth considering the most effective and immediate ways to change the focus on “they say” to “We say”. Rather than challenge the “reasoning” on their terms, change the premise. Playing perpetual Defense rarely wins games. If “just powers are derived from the consent of the governed”, Withdrawing consent would be a good place to start the discussion.
