original-intentHere’s an excerpt from a great interview from the Daily Bell with James Jaeger, the award winning director of Original Intent (which makes a great Christmas gift!).

Daily Bell: Aren’t those ideals of liberty that you describe, the ones the US was founded on?

Jaeger: The U.S. Constitution has adopted certain traditional values to promote this idea, values that were found in the Christian Bible, and stipulated a government that is supposed to serve We the People and protect liberties. Not provide all manner of dialectic materialist needs and wants. Unfortunately, due to FIAT money and a host of other failures to follow the US Constitution, we now have a government that’s attempting to do just this, and in doing such, go the way of all other oligarchies down through time. This can be reversed if certain provisions of the Constitution are better-applied, such as Article III, Section 2 and the Second Amendment and other provisions are reinstated, such as the 17th Amendment and the original Commerce Clause. ORIGINAL INTENT goes into these matters.
