"The freedom and happiness of man...[are] the sole objects of all legitimate
government." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Thaddeus Kosciusko, 1810
With the current behaviors of government, would you call them illegitimate or government not abiding by Constitutional law? Excessive taxation (do you feel represented?), manipulation of the press, daily destruction of your rights bestowed by the Creator and voluminous unconstitutional laws would make you think so. All the aforementioned actions deter or remove the ability for man’s attainment of happiness.
The duty we are charged with is to find, promote and elect those that will remove the obstacles in the path to your happiness. That government, when we find them, will truly represent your interest, will not be illegitimate and will use the wisdom of our Founding Fathers who created the Constitution for guidance and your freedom.
