    ozmirage--

    Harmon Taylor is interviewed in this vid. He was part of the team challenging jurisdiction of the Denver, Colorado, court to try Timothy McVeigh for the Oklahoma City bombing.

    The challenge was based on the extradition of the case from Oklahoma to Colorado since the Constitution's Bill of Rights restricts jurisdiction to the community in which the crime is committed.

    Taylor's appeal was thrown out and was said to be frivolous and ludicrous, et al. Over time Taylor came to the conclusion that the court was correct because the Constitution had never been legitimately put into place, which topic he discusses in this vid.

    He also talks about the change of currency bringing about the foundational choice of law.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvQNFMwbLeI


    Here's another interview with Taylor that I'm only 30 minutes into, but it seems to go into more detail:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uu2ik5imw2U
    (Skip the first 10 minutes' dithery intro.)


    I think my bottom-line questions are:

    1. If the original organic Constitution for the united States of America and the Bill of Rights are not something we can quote and rely on to assert our natural rights, how do we/how can we protect ourselves?

    2. If Common Law is the default law, does it need to be recognized by the corporate U.S. in order to be used?

    3. How are we able to hold "their" feet to the fire of Common Law?


    I would very much appreciate getting your take on this--and anyone else's take who cares to share. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it and maybe haven't done a swell job of describing the vid or phrasing my questions, but I'm hopeful that clarity might be gained.


    Peace Love Joy & Harmony,
    genevieve


    P.S. Thanks for this thread. I'm learning.

    I'd steer clear of patriot mythology and stick to concrete law and authorities.

    The endowed (natural) rights come from the Creator, as stated in the Declaration of Independence. Governments in America, are instituted to secure those endowed rights.

    GREAT!

    EXCEPT, if one CONSENTS to be governed, all those endowments are surrendered / waived.

    WHY?

    Because mandatory civic duties involve abrogating rights to life, liberty and absolute ownership of property.

    It was much more clear before the 1820s. In the state constitutions, they spelled out that to be a voter / elector (exercising political liberty) one had to be a property owner and pay taxes, as well as be obligated to perform other civic duties (militia duty, jury duty, etc).

    This idea that a voluntary citizen had no endowed rights was slowly erased after the 1820s. And the elimination of stringent prerequisites for voting in the democratic form allowed for a dilution of the quality of citizenship. In place of endowed rights, people were led to believe that they only had CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS (really government privileges).

    The patriot mythologists / fabulists have concocted a vast array of explanations, buzz words, and excuses to explain the situation as they perceive it. But they all ignore the effect of consent to be governed (as a citizen).

    . . .
    “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.”
    - - - George Washington; "Sentiments on a Peace Establishment" in a letter to Alexander Hamilton (2 May 1783); published in The Writings of George Washington (1938), edited by John C. Fitzpatrick, Vol. 26, p. 289.
    [... Every citizen ... owes a portion of his property ... and services in defense ... in the militia ... from 18 to 50 years of age... ]

    If he is not lying, he's clearly stating that if one is a CITIZEN, one has
    NO RIGHTS,
    NO LIBERTIES,
    NO PRIVATE PROPERTY.

    All one has are government granted privileges and immunities (i.e. civil and political rights).

    What MORE can you lose?
    Descend to status criminal, via FICA?


    REFERENCES:

    Another reference about citizenship and the drop in status from mandatory civic duties.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Civil_War
    “The great draft riot in New York City in July 1863 involved Irish immigrants who had been signed up as citizens to swell the vote of the city's Democratic political machine, not realizing it made them liable for the draft."
    Citizens do not have endowed rights to life nor liberty.
    " Personal liberty, or the Right to enjoyment of life and liberty, is one of the fundamental or natural Rights, which has been protected by its inclusion as a guarantee in the various constitutions, which is not derived from, or dependent on, the U.S. Constitution, which may not be submitted to a vote and may not depend on the outcome of an election. It is one of the most sacred and valuable Rights, as sacred as the Right to private property...and is regarded as inalienable."
    - - - 16 Corpus Juris Secundum, Constitutional Law, Sect.202, p.987

    NATURAL RIGHTS - ... are the rights of life, liberty, privacy, and good reputation.
    - - - Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Ed., p. 1324
    There are many many references that support this, but these two cover the gamut of endowments.

    Sacred Rights:
    [] absolute ownership of private property
    [] right to life
    [] right to liberty (natural and personal)
    [] right to privacy
    [] right to a good reputation
    [] not subject to majority vote (democracy)

    In short, you do not demand 'constitutional rights' but endowed rights, as promised by the constitutional guarantee of the REPUBLICAN FORM of government, and the Declaration of Independence.

    But if there is evidence that one is a consenting subject / citizen, all bets are off.

    Thumbs up Re: Republican Form of Government

    SOCIALISM = DEATH

    The cultural shift to socialist expectations for support have decimated the growth in population. Instead of relying on one’s own children, socialism tricks the people into assuming everyone else’s children will support you. Net result - less children.

    And as population declines, the growing recipient population will eventually be left to its own devices, suffer and die miserably.

    Worse, the indigenous population will be displaced by the influx of invaders from nations who did not curb their population growth. The native people will become strangers in their own lands, dispossessed and destitute.

    Thus the glorious socialist state is consumed by its own folly.
    The future belongs to the descendants, not the socialists.

    SUGGESTED REMEDY

    Assuming that the socialist safety net is unlikely to prevail, one should consider alternative means for one’s support in old age. Returning to the republican form is a good start - and cuts back on government imposed burdens.
    If one lacks (extended) family, that does not bode well.
    If one is alone, then one should endeavor to establish an autonomous habitat that can supply one’s necessities, goods, and / or services, to trade with others.
    . . . .
    Traditional Means:
    __ Rooming house / tenants
    __ Permaculture landscaping (edible plants, etc)
    __ Landlord for rental properties, mobile home park, marina, etc.
    __ Adoption by a rich patron / extended family

    If you don’t have it, can’t make it, you will do without it.

    IN DEFENSE OF THE REPUBLICAN FORM

    The threat to sovereignty, freedom and independence, and the endowments of one’s Creator require the people to make a stand against those enemies, foreign or domestic, who would trespass your life, liberty, and property for their own gain.

    In Honor of Memorial Day- - -
    Thanks for the Republican form of government,
    Where endowed rights are superior to constitutional rights (privileges),
    Where governments are instituted to secure endowed rights, and
    Where governments only govern those who consent; who knowingly waive their endowments, accept mandatory civic duties, in exchange for political liberties.

    WHAT IF - - -
    What if America never forgot the republican form, and most Americans never consented to be subject citizens?

    With endowed rights intact, any American landowner had natural liberty and dominion over his private property, not subject to any ad valorem taxes.

    And having not given consent to be governed, was not bound to obedience to the regulatory laws. His only restriction was to not trespass upon the rights and liberties of his fellow Americans.

    Imagine governments limited to securing rights and little else. Without millions to rule, nor the massive revenue streams, servant government was unable to get into mischief. And such frugal governments were quite efficient in their prosecutions of criminals, unwilling to expend public funds recklessly. For if they failed in their duties, they might find themselves subject to the ire of the sovereign people, for whom all government exists.

    What would your life be like if you had a small plot of land, a home, no income taxes, no property taxes, and liberty to do what you wish, without needing permission, license, or obedience to the State? Would you seek prosperity - be prodigiously productive - generating surplus goods and services? Or would you slack off, and just work enough to ‘get by,’ without concern for the future?

    IF ONLY AMERICANS KNEW I would not worry about the imminent collapse and reformation of servant government.

    Know what?
    • __ The republican form of government (aka “sovereignty of the people”)
    • __ Absolute ownership of private property, domiciled as an inhabitant
    • __ Natural and personal liberty
    • __ Endowed rights (by one’s Creator) are superior to granted privileges
    • __ Governments are instituted to secure endowed rights and only govern those who consent
    • __ Governments instituted to secure rights cannot tax those rights
    • __ Sovereign people can create their own medium of exchange
    • __ Limited liability, bureaucracy, usury, scarce money, compulsory charity, and bankruptcy laws are sources of corruption and havens for predators - oppose them we must.

    When sufficient number of Americans withdraw consent, the socialist democratic form will collapse - ending all public funded pensions and entitlements. The “dollar bill” will cease to be legal tender. As tax revenues plummet and obligated parties diminish, government will downsize, having few to govern, and few to pay for it.

    Infrastructure will be transferred / sold.
    All unWars will end, foreign bases closed and repatriation of all American personnel and materials will be the order of the day.

    Intolerance of predators shall be the watchword of government, once again. Tolerance of evil is unmerciful to the next victim.

    <><><><><><><><><><><><>
    If you’re a victim of disinformation and / or indoctrination, do not be too harsh on yourself. Most Americans are victims of the world’s greatest propaganda ministry.

    If you’re frustrated with the socialist democratic form of totalitarianism and “voluntary” slavery, you’re not alone. However, it is important to study facts and ignore the mythology promulgated by agents of discord and disinformation.

    The Counter Revolutionary Checklist:
    ● <> Republican form of government vs socialist democratic form
    ● <> Endowed Rights vs granted privileges
    ● <> Absolute ownership of private property
    ● <> Liberty money (freely created) vs lawful money
    ● <> Withdraw consent from “Voluntary” Socialism
    ● <> Shun usury in all its forms
    ● <> Intolerant of predators and parasites
    ● <> No limited liability, nor group privileges superior to individual rights

    The Counter Revolutionary advocates respect for the person, liberty and property rights of others. What’s yours is yours. Our birthrights are endowments of our Creator, not dependent upon governments instituted to secure those rights. And that we who do not consent to be governed, retain our endowed natural and sacred rights, liberties, prerogatives and absolute ownership rights, which are not subject to democratic vote.

    The opposition seeks to rule without consent, take without consequence, plunder without fear, and demands our gratitude for its benevolence - allowing us to regrow our skin before skinning us alive - repeatedly.

    Suggestions:
    [] Read the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and then the U.S. Constitution, in that order. Note the delegations of power and for what purpose. Pay attention to the distinction between ‘people’ and ‘citizens.’
    [] Note that those who do not consent to be governed, are not.
    [] Verify your state’s constitution and statutes still respect the sovereignty, freedom and independence of the free inhabitant, domiciled upon private property, within the boundaries of the united States of America. Verify that no servant government can trespass upon the natural rights, liberties (personal and natural), or absolute ownership of the sovereign people, except in pursuit of justice or by consent of the governed.


    I hope I am wrong, but it appears that the "DARK DAYS" are nigh.
    Prepare prepare prepare.

    MORAL CONUNDRUM

    Survival is the basis for all morality - dead things have no morals. Morality determines laws.
    There are two systems of law to choose from:
    1) Law of the Jungle versus
    2) Law of Love
    In the former, predators are good, prey are “good to eat,” and prey who fight back are “bad.” In the latter, harmless productive people are “good,” and harmful destructive people are “bad.” Civilization tends to grow when harmless productive people are dominant over the harmful destructive people.

    We have two major ideological groups:
    [] Harmful predatory people, abiding by the law of the jungle, and
    [] Harmless productive people, abiding by the law of love (civilization)
    Supposedly protected by:
    [] Government (cooperative union of the many, instituted to secure rights)
    . . .
    However, there is a problem. Without predators, there is no reason for government to exist. So if a government successfully eradicates predation, it eradicates its own reason to exist. So it is in the best interests of a government to not succeed, lest it destroy itself. Which makes government into an ally of predators and thus an enemy of the victims. Worse, is when the predators infiltrate the government, and pervert law into protecting predators and persecuting prey. Not good.
    . . .
    The Founders’ Remedy - RFOG

    To institute a government that was to be a servant to the sovereign people, was one remedy.

    All concentrations of power tend toward corruption and tyranny, so dilute power.

    Therefore, American governments were to be limited in resources (revenue) and power (consent of the governed), whose offices were to be filled by civic minded people who complied with stringent prerequisites, exhibited unselfish civic virtue, served in the militia, paid taxes, owned property, and were held to a higher standard of behavior than the free and sovereign people.

    Unfortunately, that did not last more than two generations, before it was corrupted into the populist democratic form. By eliminating the onerous prerequisites for political liberty, the public servants now could tax and rule the (m)asses, under the illusion of “consent of the governed.”

    The circle is complete, the sheeple are corralled, and can be repeatedly skinned alive - for their own good - and the shepherds can demand their gratitude for allowing them to regrow their skin before doing it again. But some are evidently not too pleased with this situation.

    Again, Americans are facing a conflict, not realizing that those who are manipulating the sheeple are not readily apparent to the "players."

    We know that government will feign incompetence and inefficiency as an excuse to leverage more revenues, more power, and abolish more liberty. As long as sheeple obey and pay, government is pleased.

    Predators are among us, in various forms and disguises. In fact, it is common knowledge that the most vocal opponents of immorality, evil and vice are often covert practitioners. In short, they’re hiding their evil by mingling with the innocent as camouflage.

    And it is more likely that predators will use innocent but useful idiots to do their fighting and conquering. It’s no fun being shot at!

    Based on the mass media, we should expect the conflict between: the “left versus right”, “rich versus poor”, “unions versus corporations,” and “old versus young”. The left wing denounces the “greedy capitalist”. The right wing denounces the “spendthrift collectivist”. Racially based agitators are even in the highest public offices. Any group that can be used to foment a schism is fair game - illegal aliens, homosexuals, perversions, racial subgroups, and religions.

    But they’re just ideological cannon fodder.

    Who are on the roster for known predators?
    [] Usurers - masters of money madness
    [] Collectivists - slavers and thieves, using government as their instrumentality
    [] Islam - A political system of totalitarianism masquerading as a religion

    These three “teams” are almost mutually exclusive.
    • Islam forbids usury, and is opposed to all other religions and governments.
    • Collectivists abhor religions that teach “Thou shalt not steal” and are ideologically opposed to usurers (“capitalist bankers and corporations”).
    • Usurers don’t care about religion or politics as long as they can “control” the money system, and take their skim via perpetual debt.

    My “Skeptic” button is being pressed by the way people are being led to “join up” with various predatory groups, and not cooperate in the mutual defense of property rights from ALL predators.

    I think “they” are planning a conflagration, and want YOU to take sides, and fight on “their” behalf.

    Best Advice - if they have a war, don’t participate. You may have to establish yourself in a rural location, where you’re not likely to be of any strategic value, and wait it out.

    In the end, one cannot use evil to defeat evil, lest evil is the victor.
    “I firmly believe that the benevolent Creator designed the republican Form of Government for Man.”
    - - - Samuel Adams;
    Statement of (14 April 1785), quoted in The Writings of Samuel Adams (1904) edited by Harry A. Cushing
    http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Samuel_Adams
    What is the essence of the Republican Form of Government?
    A form where people have:
    [] Creator endowed rights and liberties (natural rights, natural and personal liberties, absolute ownership, etc.);
    [] That governments are instituted to secure (not tax, infringe or impair);
    [] Governing (ruling) only those who consent to be governed.

    Since endowed rights are antecedent to the creation of government, they are not subject to the vote nor a democratic majority. The individual is sovereign unless he consents otherwise.

    This is what must be preserved.

    DUAL NATIONALITY / STATELESSNESS

    Persons intending to renounce U.S. citizenship should be aware that, unless they already possess a foreign nationality, they may be rendered stateless and, thus, lack the protection of any government. They may also have difficulty traveling as they may not be entitled to a passport from any country.

    An American national, free inhabitant, domiciled within the united States of America IS A FOREIGN NATIONAL with respect to the United States / Federal government. Furthermore, he is endowed with rights to be in HIS own country, and needs no passport to travel within his own country.

    POSITIVE LAW - Existing law created by legally valid procedures; (...law set by political superiors to political inferiors.) Austin, The Province of Jurisprudence Determined (1954 ed.). p.155
    Non-positive law may not be legally valid, as codified. Always check the statute.

    (a) A "foreign state", ...
    (3) which is neither a citizen of a State of the United States as defined in section 1332 (c) and (d) of this title, nor created under the laws of any third country.

    NATIONAL - A person owing permanent allegiance to a state. 8 U.S.C.A. § 1101.
    The term "national" as used in the phrase "national of the United States" is broader than the term "citizen". Brassert v. Biddle, D.C.Conn., 59 F.Supp. 457, 462.

    NATIONALITY. That quality or character which arises from the fact of a person's belonging to a nation or state. Nationality determines the political status of the individual, especially with reference to allegiance; while domicile determines his civil status. Nationality arises either by birth or by naturalization. See also Naturalization.
    - - - Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Ed., p. 1025

    CITIZENSHIP - The status of being a citizen. There are four ways to acquire citizenship: by birth in the United States, by birth in U.S. territories, by birth outside the U.S. to U.S. parents, and by naturalization.
    - - - Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Ed., p. 244

    CITIZEN - One who, under the Constitution and laws of the United States, or of a particular state, is a member of the political community, owing allegiance and being entitled to the enjoyment of full civil rights. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.
    U.S.Const., 14th Amend. See Citizenship.
    "Citizens" are members of a political community who, in their associated capacity, have established or submitted themselves to the dominion of a government for the promotion of their general welfare and the protection of their individual as well as collective rights. Herriott v. City of Seattle, 81 Wash.2d 48, 500 P.2d 101, 109.
    - - - Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Ed., p. 244

    NATURALIZATION - The process by which a person acquires nationality after birth and becomes entitled to the privileges of U.S. citizenship. 8 U.S.C.A. § 1401 et seq. In the United States collective naturalization occurs when designated groups are made citizens by treaty (as Louisiana Purchase), or by a law of Congress (as in annexation of Texas and Hawaii). Individual naturalization must follow certain steps: (a) petition for naturalization by a person of lawful age who has been a lawful resident of the United States for 5 years; (b) investigation by the Immigration and Naturalization Service to determine whether the applicant can speak and write the English language, has a knowledge of the fundamentals of American government and history, is attached to the principles of the Constitution and is of good moral character; (c) hearing before a U.S. District Court or certain State courts of record; and (d) after a lapse of at least 30 days a second appearance in court when the OATH OF ALLEGIANCE is administered.

    Default Re: Republican Form of Government

    STATUS COLLAPSUS
    =\\==\\==\\==\\=
    The insane money system is at the breaking point. The Constitution is so bypassed, that calling for public servants to abide by it is a joke. "Voluntary" socialism has transformed America into "Takers" versus "Taken." And the wholly corrupted government still demands our obedience and support. So why would such "honorable" statesmen embrace immigrants who are anti-American, anti-freedom?

    To misquote Cicero:“America delenda est!” America must be destroyed!
    Why?
    Only America has a republican form of government, despite the vast majority being ignorant of it.
    In the republican form, the people are the sovereigns, with endowed rights that government was instituted to secure. And only by consent, can the government rule (govern). In all other countries, the people are subjects of their sovereign governments, whether they're monarchies, democracies, or totalitarian police states.
    Such a nation and people cannot be allowed to survive, thrive and prosper. It would trigger a world wide revolution and topple the Powers That Be.
    . . .
    The Revolution of 1776 was speedily hampered by the USCON (1787) which granted power to the usurers (bankers) via scarce precious metal coin. Money madness forced many changes to the original plan of the Founders. Desperate for "yellow metal," Americans were more than willing to compromise their moral consciences. Americans were chivvied into "Manifest destiny" and conquering the continent, as well as expanding into the Pacific Ocean, absorbing the Kingdom of Hawaii, and taking over Spanish conquests (Philippines). The final conquest was accomplished in the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, allowing for completion in less than 20 years (1913-1933). The State of Emergency, confiscation of lawful money, and pauperization of the American people, allowed for the imposition of national socialism (via "voluntary" FICA). So we have 320 million "human resources" pledged as collateral on an impossible to pay public debt, interest charges that are larger than the cost of World War Two, an overhead of red tape, taxation, and bureaucracy that strangles prosperity, a government filled with parasites, predators and scoundrels who laugh at the "little people" and fear the day they rise up - so they repeatedly push for complete disarmament of the once free people.

    Yes, we're being manipulated into a unCivil War, so that there's an excuse to impose martial law, and dispense with existing law. Better yet, the Powers That Be want to thin the herd. . . us.
    Why else place mutually antagonistic populations in close proximity?

    Under the Republican Form of Government, Americans are endowed with rights by their Creator, that government was instituted to secure - not infringe, tax, or trespass. They are sovereign, free and independent. Such a people are anathema to any who demand submission, subjugation, and strict obedience - on pain of death.

    You can restore your status as a free (or sovereign) American under the RFOG, but that won't change the fact that the perpetually indebted socialist democratic form is heading for the crapper. So you need to PREPARE, as the Wise Ant saith. Have a secure bug out location if your own domicile is inadequate. Have supplies tucked away, hidden from Gestapo Grasshoppers and Lunatic Locusts, who will be battling for control of the garden. Then hunker down for a “cold” winter that will follow upon the destruction.

    Let us hope that the republican form won't be eradicated from the face of the Earth.
    The secret of life is that there is no secret of life.

    SOUNDBITE EXPLICATION
    OXYMORONS R US
    >>>|||<<<
    Republican Form Versus Democratic Form
    (of Government)
    (America’s Unique Version)
    ● RFOG: “What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine, don’t trespass, or else my ally, the government will punish you.”
    ● DFOG: “You volunteered to be governed. So shut up, sit down, and obey!”
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Restating the situation, concisely - - -
    RFOG SOUNDBITES:
    {source: Declaration of Independence}
    The American national, free inhabitant has endowed
    [] Natural rights
    [] Natural liberty
    [] Personal liberty
    [] Absolute ownership; and is a
    [] Sovereign, served by government
    (Owes nothing to the government)
    . . .
    DFOG SOUNDBITES:
    {source: compact / constitution}
    The American citizen / resident has government granted
    [] Civil rights
    [] Civil liberty
    [] Political liberty
    [] Qualified ownership; and is a
    [] Subject of the government, by consent
    (Owes mandatory civic duties, etc)
    . . .
    EXCEPTED CLASSES:
    {Status criminals}
    <> Fugitives from justice
    <> Paupers (recipients of public charity)
    <> Vagabonds (vagrants, wanderers, homeless)
    CAVEAT: “Resident” is often redefined to be synonymous with vagabond.
    . . .
    When reading any American law ask yourself:
    ● Is this law securing the rights of an injured party?
    ● Is this law imposed upon only those who gave consent?
    ● Is this law internal to the administration of the government?
    ● Is this law only pertaining to status criminals?
    . . .
    He who consents cannot complain!
    . . .

    FOUNDERS’ IDEAL

    As victims of the world's greatest propaganda ministry and careful indoctrination by government approved pedagogues, it is reasonable that few Americans should know of the truth about America's founding.

    I know I had no clue, despite a traditional education, college and post graduate studies, as to the true nature of America's government. Only after reading the law (statutes) at the local county courthouse law library, did the scales lift from my eyes.

    Though not explicitly mentioned in any "approved" history course, our Founding Fathers HATED the English Parliamentary Democracy, and deliberately sought an alternative to the vices and foibles of democrazy... where a majority could vote to dispossess a minority with impunity.

    The Post Revolutionary Republicanism was centered on limiting corruption and greed. Virtue was of the utmost importance for citizens and representatives. Revolutionaries took a lesson from ancient Rome, they knew it was necessary to avoid the luxury that had destroyed the Empire.

    A virtuous citizen was one that ignored monetary compensation and made a commitment to resist and eradicate corruption. The Republic was sacred; therefore, it is necessary to serve the state in a truly representative way, ignoring self-interest and individual will. Republicanism required the service of those who were willing to give up their own interests for a common good.

    In short, citizenship (and public service), was a step DOWN in status, from sovereign to subject.

    :>:>:>:|| THE IDEAL ||:<:<:<:
    Under the Republican Form - - -
    __ Americans were endowed with inherent / sacred / inalienable rights; peacefully supporting their right to life with harmless activities, exercising natural and personal liberty, and absolutely owning themselves, their labor, and the fruits of that labor, as well as the land and buildings upon their land. No government instituted to secure endowed rights could tax, regulate or otherwise infringe upon those rights.

    Under the Democratic Form - - -
    __ A small portion, perhaps 3%, would constitute the Citizenry, who consented to be governed, in order to serve. They would surrender endowed rights, accept mandatory civic duties, serve in the militia, pay the bulk of taxes (on privileges), be held to a higher standard of behavior, and exercise civil and political liberties, vote and hold public office. They had to be propertied, tax paying, and dutiful. And with the prospect of militia duty (18-50), cowards need not apply.
    . . .
    __ The government instituted to secure rights of the sovereign people (adjudicate disputes, punish criminals, defend against enemies, foreign or domestic) would not govern nor rule the sovereign people, but serve them. Only those who consented to be governed (Citizens) would be ruled / governed, and held to a higher standard of behavior. Service is not a right, but a privilege, and the sovereign people had the right to refuse the services of those they deemed immoral, disgusting, repugnant or otherwise unacceptable to them.
    . . .
    This was the “ideal” that the Founders hoped would insure that only unselfish civic minded militia veterans would become citizens, public servants and statesmen. And with the limited resources (revenues) and few subject citizens, there would be little opportunity to foster corruption, greed, or delve into other vices, nor foment wars of aggression and conquest.
    . . .
    Unfortunately, one group of predators were granted protection (usurers), and the Constitution was warped to grant them vast power and wealth. [The limitation to gold and silver coin, and the power to administer bankruptcies - due to usury! This shifted the cost from the creditor to the debtor.] The rise of the bankers in early American history is easy to trace.

    Another bane of the Founders, unlimited Democracy, was unleashed in the 1820s, when States removed the strict prerequisites for voters / electors / citizens. This set the stage for the rise of partisan political parties to fight over the “spoils” of ever greater tax revenues and masses to rule / govern.

    The perversion of Democracy continued unabated, and hastened by the “Progressives” (Collectivists from Europe), who advocated the transfer of power to the State. Infrastructure was taken over, at taxpayers expense, and the size and scope of government grew and grew. Where government could not directly control, it indirectly controlled via regulation and taxation. Instead of securing rights and liberties, government trampled rights and liberties, by virtue of the contrived consent of the governed, who unknowingly assumed they retained endowments, when in reality, they had surrendered them for a mess of pottage. Where once free people lived in domiciles, subjects now resided, needing permission (license) and or paid taxes to live, work, travel, buy, sell, treat the sick, operate a business, enter occupations, build a house, transmit, fly, cut hair, hunt, fish, marry or own a dog. The Founders would be sickened by their demeanor and slavish condition.

    The coming conflagration will divide the nation into partisan groups, some on the “Left” (Collectivists), some on the “Right” (Usurers / Corporations), some on the “Take” and others “for the heck of it.” Let’s not exclude the foreign invaders who see an opportunity to enrich themselves, or promote their anti-American religious dogma.
    But hardly any will fight for the republican form and the sovereignty of the American people.
    Or will they?

    MORALITY AND LAW
    - - a handy nanosoundbite reference - -
    >>>(||)<<<
    ● Morality is based on survival. Dead things have no morals.
    ● Survival by harmful acts falls under _law of the jungle.
    ● Sacrificing others for one’s own benefit is the rule under jungle law.
    ● Survival by harmless acts falls under the _law of love.
    ● Self sacrifice for the benefit of another is the highest expression of love.
    ● Governments instituted to secure rights from predation oppose jungle law.
    ● Thus, all law is for the protection of property rights, all else is policy, and policy requires consent.
    ● What’s mine is mine, what’s yours is yours, do not trespass, or my government will punish you.
    ● If you have Creator endowed [natural] rights, [personal and natural] liberties, absolute ownership of private property; and governments were instituted to secure them, you are sovereign under the republican form of government.
    ● If you have government granted civil and political rights (aka liberties) instead of endowed rights, you are a subject and not under the republican form.
    ● Tolerance of [predators / evil] is unmerciful to the next victim. Loving your enemies does not extend to aiding them in the victimization of innocents.
    ● Contradictory behavior by government may indicate infestation by predators, who will pervert government to protect predators and punish their victims who dare to fight back.
