I have lived here in this state on and off since I was about 15 years of age. Only leaving for college, and to serve this nation in the United States Marine Corps. I am upset, and disturbed with the continuance, and furthering of the jack boot police state here in Florida. We now have a new Governor, and Attorney General. These two individual’s are quick to speak about the constitution, and how Obama-care is un-constitutional. However, there are many draconian state laws that go against those laws laid down in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I am not seeing the attention, of the laws of Florida that are un-Constitutional by these new lawmaker’s!
For the first instance, if you are driving in the state of Florida the law says you must wear a seat belt. The law enforcement community here has gone so far as to say that not wearing your belt gives them probable cause to search your vehicle. Now, in my opinion this seems to violate not only the essence of liberty, but also the nature of the fourth amendment.
The second instance, I will bring up the second amendment. Florida’s own constitution violates the supreme law of the land, and creates a conundrum of epic proportions when it comes to a Citizens god given right to self-defense. The Florida constitution is and must be sub-servant to the law laid down by the U.S. Constitution until such time as the state secedes from the union. Florida’s constitution in regards to arms states: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves and of the lawful authority of the state shall not be infringed, except that the manner of bearing arms may be regulated by law.” This creates the conundrum I was speaking of earlier. It causes the state to have to publish books with all the draconian gun laws, and this is done on the taxpayer’s dime. On top of the other draconian laws regarding firearms in Florida, the state is offering concealed carry permits. Turning a god given right into a paid for privilege, and in doing so attempting to elevate the state and its so-called authority above that of the lord almighty. I hold the state in contempt for these actions, and demand it be righted to fit with the guidelines of the Constitution of the United States.
