Our country is plaigued with issues regarding the constitution, and our Supreme Court has framed a mock history by equivocating the meaning of words to reflect words that fit into stare decsis. This dictionary can clear up this fraud, regarding the use of absolute power written into our constitution, which went beyond that of despots in England of 1776. These are still the prime facie evidence in existance that prevents the rewriting of history. Thanks

Page 83 - As may with sweetness, through mine ear, Dissolve me into ecstasies, And bring all Heaven before mine eyes. And may at last my weary age Find out the peaceful hermitage, The hairy gown and mossy cell, Where I may sit and rightly spell Of every star that heaven doth shew, And every herb that sips the dew, Till old experience do attain To something like prophetic strain.
