The 9th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Amendment IX:

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

The most overlooked Amendment in the Bill of Rights...

What it generally means, in the context with the rest of the Constitution, is that We The People are the rightful OWNERS of the government and masters of the servants therein.

Through the powers vested in us by God, WE grant certain authorities to the government in order to protect us from injury. Those authorities and powers therein are granted only to the extent that those in government use them PROPERLY and with the full force of law to protect us --- ESPECIALLY from the abuses of government itself! Anything that has NOT been SPECIFICALLY delegated to the government (Federal and all others) is retained by We The People - INCLUDING the right to suspend or even rescind any previously granted authorities and powers. In other words, WE THE PEOPLE TELL THE PUBLIC SERVANTS WHAT WE WANT THEM TO DO AND THEY ARE BOUND BY THE OATH THEY GIVE TO DO IT.

WE are their perpetual masters, and they are our servants. If they fail or refuse to obey, then we have the unalienable right to REMOVE THEM FROM OFFICE and replace them with others that will obey, even if we have to exercise our 2nd Amendment Rights to facilitate their removal. But our 1st Amendment Rights should be exercised first, with the objective of their removal and replacement in mind... Therefore, the 2nd Amendment is there to protect the 1st Amendment and all other rights and powers We The People hold over these public servants.

It's this author's educated opinion (backed up by case law) that if a public servant refuses to uphold any right We The People have, then they act under color of office (illegally) to intentionally breach their oath, thereby admitting INTENT to violate the rights of the people. Which is also a breach of contract, and thereby making themselves subject to lawsuit and criminal prosecution (see Title 18 U.S.C. sec(s) 241, 242, 245). Such breach of oath is also an act of Treason Against The Constitution and cause for immediate removal from office. For example, when any public servant makes a statement that they want to inflict any form of gun-control, they are admitting that they INTEND to violate their oath to protect and defend the Constitution and thereby the rights of the people by infringing upon the 2nd Amendment. At that very instant that public servant waives any and all authority of their office and becomes nothing more than a mere interloper, a trespasser of the law, - automatically rendering themselves with ZERO authority whatsoever.

Another very important basis of criminal law is Corpus Delicti... If you are falsely accused of committing a crime - such as a traffic violation, or not keeping your lawn mowed, etc., then you have NOT committed any crime as there is most likely NO INJURED PARTY... And since we have an ADVERSARIAL form of Judicial government, and there being no adversary (injured party) then the judicial branch of government fails to establish foundation, as their actions of prosecution are without merit, therefore the court is without subject matter jurisdiction... Such abuses by the government are usually strictly for revenue generation, which is a violation of Federal law - The HOBBS ACT - (see Title 18 U.S.C. 1951).
