Preamble — an introductory statement; preface; introduction.
Ambling — to go at a slow, easy pace; stroll; saunter:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Preamble to the U.S. Constitution

This is what I am proposing to do with these next few posts. Before WE can amble, this here is the preamble. 🙂

Out of many WE the People are!

 

1 of WE,

 

 

 

 

 

Please note, it is my purpose and intent to repeat the entire Preamble word for word throughout this series. Perhaps WE all will have it memorized at its conclusion and keep it!

Next time: ‘We the People’

The Conservative and The Liberal

May 19, 2010

Once upon a recent day, somewhere on Main Street America, a group of conservatives got together to ‘peaceably’ protest something. The police were called. A bias media was informed. The media showed up and branded the marchers with all kinds of unsavory names like “twits,” “Far Right Extremists,” “dangerous,” “radicals” and “racists.” The police dispersed the crowd.

A little time went by and a group of liberals got together to ‘peaceably’ protest something. The police were called. A bias media was informed. The media showed up and branded these marchers also, with all kinds of unsavory names like “Libs,” “Far Left Extremists,” “dangerous,” “radicals” and “racists.” The police dispersed the crowd.

A few days later, two couples crossed paths on the sidewalk and recognized one another. One couple had been supporters, marchers and protestors at the conservative gathering earlier. The other couple had been supporters, marchers and protestors at the liberal rally previously.

The couples were mixed – one White American, one Black American or African American or Negro American, one Chinese American and one Hispanic American or Latino American or Spanish Origin American.

After a few angry words were exchanged, they walked out into the center of the street. The police were called and the media was informed.

Some enterprising American Indian Americans, Alaskan Native Americans, Mexican Americans or Chicano Americans, Puerto Rican Americans, Cuban Americans, Asian Indian Americans, Japanese Americans, Native Hawaiian Americans, Korean Americans, Guarmanian Americans or Chamorro Americans, Filipino Americans, Vietnamese Americans, Samoan Americans, Other Asian Americans, Other Pacific Islander Americans, and some Other Race Americans, all kids (youts’ or youths) plus Miss Piggy and Kermit the frog, set up a lemonade stand.

Disclaimer: All the above racial and ethnic categories come from the U.S. 2010 Census form, so don’t get mad at me.

Anyway, some environmental people stood in trees while others sat on benches made from trees. Some rode horses and other were crossing guards for an endangered species of turtles. The global warmers sat inside air-conditioned homes and others could not understand why it was so cold outside.

Some Christians, Roman Catholics, Jews, Moslems and ‘Other Religions’ religious people prayed. Some Agnostics could not decide if they should pray or not pray. Some Atheists, it was assumed, just Un-prayed.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) took the day off as there was no minority or disadvantaged people to represent.

The whole neighborhood turned out and it was a small representation of everything and everyone on planet earth.

The media never showed up as there was no story for any of them to ‘spin,’ so they just ran with a re-make of yesterday’s news or made up stuff.

Government was upset as there was no apparent crisis to solve or muck up.

When the police finally arrived, they did not know what to do, so they left, leaving the two couples in the middle of the street, to “work it out.”

After the police left and no one in the neighborhood seemed to care anymore, everyone went home or to where-ever. The street was quiet.

The two guys proceeded to beat the crap out of each other. The ladies got down and dirty in a knock-down; drag-out cat fight.

The guys were last seen arm-n-arm, with red, white and blue bruises and black eyes. They were each drinking their favorite All-American beer or near-beer. One ate an All-American backyard burger (meat or non-meat) and the other an All-American hotdog (meat or non-meat). Then one had some Fourth of July Cherry Pie (with or without sugar) and the other a piece of American Mom’s Apple Pie (with or without sugar). Together they stood smiling, laughing and screaming; rooting for their own favorite baseball team. And there at the stadium, the score was tied. Score – Conservative won and the Liberal won. And the bent, bruised and twisted sisters went shopping.

Yep, they were more than equally divided, but they found a way to Unite! What about you and me and US, WE the People? OUR American math may be complicated long division, but WE the People are the result of simple addition.

Mind Control

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Today: Mind Control

Mind Control? OH my, is this about drugs or some group manipulating OUR thoughts? Rest assured, neither of those ‘extreme’ measures are the purpose of this post. But every voluntary action taken is preceded by thought. If the thought or thoughts are askew, the actions taken will produce consequences. Like garbage in = garbage out. It does not matter if this manipulation is intentional or errors left undetected and uncorrected, the outcome will still end with consequences.

Last time, WE saw that WE the People are precariously in the middle of two different, but similar forces. From one hand, without realizing that it is OUR differences that keep US divided, it is as if WE had taken some blue mindset altering or maintenance pill. From the other hand, without realizing that it is a corrupt “system” that always seeks power and control, it is as if, WE had taken some red mindset altering or maintenance pill. The all pervading effects of each, act as if WE had taken both the blue and the red pill. This mix of colors makes purple. The effects of which, keep US in a Purple Haze, where WE hardly recognize ourselves or OUR republic anymore. But WE have a choice. WE have the power to end this confusion and mindset and restore OUR republic, OUR balance and OUR control over the security of OUR unalienable rights and those of OUR posterity.

Have WE ever heard or read something similar to the following?

WE have looked into the face of OUR enemy and it is US.

-unknown-

or

“…WE are OUR own worst enemy…”

-Louis Binstock-

In OUR failure to recognize what divides US, or the corrupt “system” that always seeks power and control over US, WE by default, allow both to continue. Have WE ever heard or read “knowledge is power?” This is only true in that this power, is only potential power. If WE the people, being informed; empowered by this knowledge do not act upon this knowledge, WE by default, allow the division and the corrupt “system” to continue.

In a previous post WE were introduced to the Hegelian Dialectic. See:

Convening a Constitutional Congress

Hegel is known for the theorem:

‘Thesis, antithesis and synthesis.’

Another way to see this is:

Problem – Reaction –  Solution

And yet another is:

Crisis – Fear – Rescue (but ends with a loss of Liberty)

This theorem may be simply known as, the ‘Hegelian dialectic.’

“…the State ‘has the supreme right against the individual, whose supreme duty is to be a member of the State… for the right of the world spirit is above all special privileges.'”

-Author/historian William Shirer, quoting Georg Hegel in his book, ‘The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich’ (1959, page 144)-

In 1847, the London Communist League (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels) used Hegel’s theory (Hegelian dialectic) to back up their economic theory of communism. In the 21st century, this thinking affects our entire social and political structure. This theory is a framework for guiding thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead to a predetermined solution. Simply seen:

Have a crisis, produce a crisis or make US think WE have a crisis + the government comes to the rescue = solution.

“The State is the march of God through the World, its ground is the power of reason realizing itself as will.”

-From G.W.F. Hegel, Philosophy of Law in Jacob Loewenberg (ed.), Hegel: Selections (New York: C. Scribner’s Sons, 1929), pp. 443-444, 447.-

Intentionally or not, if WE the People do not recognize how the Hegelian dialectic drives OUR country, OUR republic and OUR lives, WE by default, allow this “system” to continue.

Hegel’s theorem as applied in OUR country is based on the thesis – the state (OUR government) encounters some conflict, some crisis. The antithesis is the reaction of fear that unless  – the state (OUR government) can solve the crisis, there will be consequences. The synthesis is that if WE the People encountering the crisis and react with fear to it, WE exercise OUR freedom of will to the state (OUR government) to relive US of OUR fears. In so doing, each time the state attempts to solve the crisis, WE the People relinquish more and more of OUR control to it.

As per this theorem, all conflicts of interest are controlled within the state. And remember, according to Hegel, the “state is God’s march through the world.”  Let’s look at an example of Hegelian dialectic in a situation most of US are all too familiar with.

There is a campaign in progress. WE the People are pretty close on the issues. There are two candidates and WE are equally divided on the candidate WE think has the best qualifications. For whatever reasons, let’s say candidate A. is quite certain they cannot win strictly on the issues alone. So candidate A. digs up dirt on candidate B. Candidate B. responds in kind and releases dirt on candidate A. The worse the dirt is and the scarier either candidate appears to US, the further away from each other WE become. In the political spectrum, WE call these positions either ‘far-left’ or ‘far-right.’  In the final outcome, candidate A. wins the election in numbers of votes, not cast for their position on the issues, but by votes cast against the other candidate and that their candidacy would save US from the other. So the process ends by all OUR votes merging as a single entity.

The debate is framed and controlled by candidate A. that wins the election not on the issues, but by convincing both sides that voting for their candidacy would avert the crisis (perceived or real) that candidate B. would cause if elected. WE call these ‘smear campaigns’ and have seen this type of behavior, time and time again. What is the common reaction heard to this? Oh, “it’s just politics,” is commonly something WE hear. WE complain about it, dismiss it, but it does not seem to go away, why? Why, because it is allowed to continue.

Another example of Hegelian dialectic would be, using the same election, is to get some to consider wild accusations and think, maybe they’re true. On the other side, if you can get people to not care because of the negative campaign, they become less likely to vote for candidate B. and not vote at all, which helps candidate A. They are also, more likely to vote for candidate A. if they are promised something they care about; not offered by candidate B. Look at this purely from the standpoint of finances.

Candidate A. has lots of money to spend and candidate B. does not. Candidate A. becomes a ‘darling’ to business and the media, now benefiting from the infusion of cash. Question: Are you more or less likely to favor candidate A. if you are being paid to cover their campaign? People siding with Candidate B. might perceive this as Candidate A. ‘trying to buy the election.’ But their reaction to this could very easily be manipulated by the fear of loss. They do not want to vote for a loser and vote for candidate A. perceived as a winner. With more money to spend than candidate B., candidate A. can spend more money on making promises, specifically to those that don’t care. Even apathy is fear.

In all the examples above, a crisis is perceived and instead of reason applied to voting, fear is the factor and the election is won by candidate A. not on the issues, but by being perceived as the only solution to the crisis. Now take all the same examples and apply the Hegelian dialectic, to the dominating two-party political “system” in OUR country.

Look at every advertisement; every marketing strategy, for nearly every single product or service sold through every vehicle possible. Look at them with new eyes. Are most of these not directed at some fear and the desire to not have the fear and then those offering the product or service come to the rescue as the only solution?

Now it’s one thing for a writer of fiction to develop plots involving heroes and villains; heroines and villainesses and lead the reader to a preconceived conclusion, but this is real life WE are discussing here.

This next image might be somewhat familiar to most of US, but also strangely unfamiliar at the same time. Four wise monkeys, but I thought there were only three?

Iwazaru                  Mizaru                Kikazaru             Shizaru

Speak no evil  –   See no evil  –   Hear no evil  –   Do no evil

The three wise monkeys (Japanese: san’en or sanzaru, or sanbiki no saru, literally “three monkeys”) are a pictorial maxim (saying). Together they express the idea to: “Speak no evil, see no evil and to hear no evil.” But quite often there is a fourth monkey, usually not seen in western culture. Shizaru, symbolizes the principle of “do no evil“. This monkey may be shown covering its abdomen or genital area, or crossing its arms.

Note: Both chimpanzees and monkeys are primates, though monkeys are less closely related to people. The main obvious difference between the two is that monkeys have tails and chimps do not. Monkeys  are structurally closer to four-legged animals like cats and dogs, while chimpanzees and other apes are more similar to human beings, both structurally and in terms of their level of intelligence and behavior. Sorry if I offended any monkeys, chimpanzees or apes. I liked the picture of the chimps better than others found with monkeys. But the story, the pictorial maxim (saying) is about monkeys.    🙂

Perhaps the comparison to monkeys and OUR lives is a little simplistic, but still a great way to live. But what if there is uncertainty or confusion over what is evil that WE should not speak, see, hear or do?

Thomas Jefferson was very keen on education so that OUR decisions are ruled by reason and not by fear. A 1700’s solution is still appropriate for today.

“Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.”

-Thomas Jefferson-

The same four little monkeys (chimps) above, could they not be manipulated by fear to not speak, see, hear or do that which is right? And could these same four little monkeys (chimps) be manipulated to speak of darkness and call it light; see evil and perceive it as goodness; hear evil and internalize it as righteousness, and do that which is wrong and rationalize it as right and justified?

Does this smack of conspiracy or smell like Orwellian fiction coming true?

“The adjective “Orwellian” describes the situation, idea, or societal condition that George Orwell identified as being destructive to the welfare of a free society. It connotes an attitude and a policy of control by propaganda, surveillance, misinformation, denial of truth, and manipulation of the past, including the “unperson” — a person whose past existence is expunged from the public record and memory, practiced by modern repressive governments”

-Quote from: Wikipedia-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orwellian

From the book, ‘The ideological origins of the American Revolution,’ by Bernard Bailyn the following is found.

-from: ‘The ideological origins of the American Revolution’- Bernard Bailyn, page 120-

Here is the father of OUR country in 1774, using the word “systematic,” the root being, “system.” Did he believe in or was he suggesting some conspiracy theory?

Thomas Jefferson wrote:

“Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing [a people] to slavery.”

-Thomas Jefferson-

Here again, Jefferson uses the word “systematic” and the root of course, again, is “system.” Did he believe in or was he suggesting a conspiracy theory? “Conspiracy,” “deliberate” and “systematic” words aside, is not a reconciliation of the above quotes by Washington and Jefferson possible?  Did either have access to any such written conspiracy? It matters not if there was such a plan existing, actions taken were still “systematic” and “deliberate.” Errors that occurred in the past, neither detected nor corrected and therefore continuing in the present is still a “system,” a mindset. Yes, it is a “system.” Yes, it is a mindset allowed to continue, by failing first to detect it and then failing to correct it.

“Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.”

-George Washington-

To take, hold and keep power is seductive. With power comes what I call the “trappings of power.” It is like the flame that draws the moth or a baited ‘trap.’ Fear of loss of power often brings the reaction of fire, the claws of a predator or the venom in the fangs of a snake. It will defend itself. It will justify itself. It will always seize more power, if left to its own devices.

In our present-day, it is illegal for you and me to have a poker game, to play for money, in the privacy of OUR own homes. But it’s OK if the state sanctions it as lotto or racetracks etc. because it is all for some good cause? It’s OK to go to Las Vegas, visit a casino or if you take risks at the stock market on Wall Street? Extortion is illegal, but high interest like what a ‘loan shark’ might ‘shake down’ people for, is perfectly legal for a bank to charge? Bribery – the offering and  acceptance of a bribe are illegal, but lobbying and accepting campaign contributions is not only legal, but perfectly acceptable? Perjury or lying under oath is a crime, but little ‘white lies,’ ‘spin,’ and depending on “what is, is,” is OK?

“Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”

-George Washington-

Conspiracies and conspiracy theories, what do they do; what do they accomplish, even if true? There have been many such theories in our lifetimes of the 20th Century and even today. Was it known by OUR government in advance, of  the attack on Pearl Harbor December 7th, 1942? What about the JFK conspiracies and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy? Another theory suggests that no one has ever landed on the moon? Then there is the theory that our own government planned the attack on the ‘Twin Towers,’ September 11th, 2001? There is the New World Order Conspiracy? The list goes on and on. There are two things for certain that all these theories do, whether or not they are true. These conspiracy theories promote fear and influence the casting of blame. What good does fear do or what does blaming others accomplish? Intentional or not, fear and blame are still the by-products of a corrupt “system;” a mindset of that’s the way it is; that’s the way it is done. Do WE not see that this is a corrupt “system;” a mindset?

Question everything and everyone with boldness said Jefferson. WE must research and re-search OUR research again. Then WE must research and re-search until WE are sufficiently educated and well informed. Then WE will see how every time in OUR history that some of OUR liberty has been taken, it is always preceded by some real or perceived crisis. Then the government has been perceived as the only entity to solve OUR problems and allay OUR fears. The price for this service is to charge US dearly for the privilege of taking OUR liberty and to keep US dependent! None have such a right to take what can neither be taken nor forfeited!

For OUR purposes here, it does not matter if this all were some purposed Grand Scheme, an intentional conspiracy with a real person, persons, party or international consortium to blame. It does not matter that it is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system,” that has evolved from errors in the past that have not been detected and therefore, have never been corrected. Why does neither of these matter? Because the consequences would still be the same and they are the same! The beginning was still in 1861! The solution is still in OUR hands!

Next time WE will go through some (not all), of the events since 1861, from the perspective of crises and how laws and even amendments to OUR Constitution ended with more and more of OUR liberty being seized. Am I suggesting the Hegelian dialectic is present in OUR republic? Yes!

Purple Haze

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Last time, WE concluded with the analogy of a sandwich. The bread top of US is compared to all the external things, causes and interests, even though useful, effect division among US as WE are not united. The bread on the bottom of US is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. WE are the jam in the middle of the sandwich. WE the People are the only solution and the only prevention of being eaten alive. But hey Dahni, what is all these purple words for?

Today: Purple Haze

There are many things associated with the phrase ‘Purple Haze,’ including fields of lavender and other purple plants. It is one of 17 colors in the ‘Sonochrome’ spectrum of pre-tinted film stocks introduced by Kodak, in the late 20’s. ‘Purple Haze’ can also refer to certain alcoholic beverages (beer & liquor drinks), an A cappella singing group, several illegal drugs for “recreational purposes,” various night clubs and coffee shops, among others. Most noteworthy for OUR purposes here, ‘Purple Haze,’ is the title name with repeated references to the phrase in a song from the 60’s.

“Purple haze all in my eyes
Don’t know if it’s day or night
You’ve got me blowin, blowin my mind
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?”

The words above are a verse from the song named, ‘Purple Haze.’ The song appeared in the album ‘Are You Experienced’ in 1967. Music and lyrics of ‘Purple Haze’ were written, composed and performed by…

…Jimi Hendrix.

Jimi Hendrix is a celebrated rock-n-roll legend and electric guitar virtuoso, known as a master of ‘feedback’ and shock performances like setting his guitar on fire while performing and his rendition of ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ at the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969.

Purple Haze,’ the title and the words in the song, refer to ‘Purple Haze,’a purple microdot of LSD. Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), commonly known as ‘acid,’ is an illegal psychedelic drug. It was quite popular among the ‘Hippies’ and youth culture of the 60’s. Now if this is a ‘trip’ down memory lane for some of US that lived during those times, it ‘was a ‘trip’ or ‘’tripping’ that this drug was known to take the user on or the user would have “experienced.”

The effects of this drug would vary from person to person; previous experience, state of mind and even the environment were some of the factors involved with a ‘trip.’

Some of these effects were reported as seeing magnified vibrant colors, inanimate objects like walls seeming to breathe or ripple; the distortion of time, tracers or flashes of light racing in front or behind the eyes. Many people believe the drug enhanced their creativity and was a door to some type of spiritual awakening. In short, the chemical reactions upon the brain induce hallucinations. As defined in the dictionary, a hallucination is:

“a sensory experience of something that does not exist outside the mind,usually manifested as visual and auditory images.. a false notion, belief, or impression; illusion; delusion.”

Based on the Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2010.

In essence, the context here is mind altering inducement.

Throughout this blog I have made repeated reference to the 1999 science fiction movie, ‘The Matrix.’ It was used to show an analogy of a non-real, fictitious, ‘legal fiction;’ corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system,” affecting nearly every aspect of OUR republic and of OUR lives. In the very beginning of this movie, viewers are introduced to two characters, Morpheus and Neo. Neo is searching for an answer and Morpheus offered him a choice between two separate things.

This choice presents itself in the form of two capsules, one blue and one red. Morpheus explains to Neo what each means.

“You take the blue pill and the story ends.  You wake in your bed and you believe whatever you want to believe.

You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

MORPHEUS the Character – ‘The Matrix’ © 1999

Written by Larry and Andy Wachowski © April 8, 1996

One way to look at both the blue pill and the red pill is that each are like a mind altering drug.

Returning to the previous post and the analogy of the sandwich, the bread on top of US would be like taking the red pill, WE just keep doing whatever WE are doing and everything pretty much remains the same. WE pretty much remain divided and continue to be “useful idiots” and WE are allowing the “system” to continue.

If WE take the blue pill, this is like accepting the “system” or the piece of bread on the bottom of US. WE may or may not understand that it is a “system,” but either way, WE still remain “useful idiots” and allow it to continue.

In the middle of the sandwich is US, WE the People. WE are the jam between the two pieces of bread. But like choosing the red or the blue pill, the outcome is determined by our choice. WE are the power of OUR republic. WE always were and WE still are the power of OUR republic! Even if WE lost OUR lives and OUR republic, nothing changes the truth of who WE are and what WE are! That being the case, WE have before US the republic that WE have. If WE do not know what the choices are before US, WE allow the “system” to continue. If WE do not know of the existence of such a “system,” WE allow it to continue. If WE are fighting, opposing and constantly disagreeing with one another, or in any way are distracted and divided, WE allow the “system” to continue.

But what if WE took both the red pill and the blue pill?  Now WE get to it. What happens when the colors of red and blue are mixed together? If the red pill and the blue pill were taken together, what kind of mind altering ‘experience’ would that be like? Now we get to what I call here, PURPLE HAZE.

WE the People are living in world where the lines are all messed up. The colors are fused and perceptions are distorted. It’s like a bad ‘acid’ ‘trip.’ What WE knew as the United States of America growing up seems altered. WE hardly recognize OUR republic or even ourselves anymore. Up is down; down is up; gambling is risk taking, bribery is lobbying, laws are not for the lawless, but the law-abiding, a lie is truth, truth is a lie, meaning what is said is saying what is wanted to hear, honesty is spin, solving problems is finding fault, WE is me myself and I, and integrity is compromise. The list could go on, but let US bring up a familiar line.

“United WE stand…”

You know the rest, so fill in the _____________blank. Think about the word compromise. What other idea could be associated with the word? Perhaps a ‘compromising position’ may come to mind? Almost everyday some new allegation is in the forefront of the media’s attention about some public figure or public official in some ‘compromising position.’ Some new corruption investigation; some ethics charge or some type of scandal happen almost everyday in this country. Someone has possibly compromised. The allegations true or not, bring out the swarm of busy bodies, the buzzards hover and the sharks circle among the media. They compromise journalistic integrity for entertainment value and rationalize they are merely delivering what the public wants. They are not alone. Who buys the newspapers, the magazines, and watches all of this as if with baited breath, over the plight of a Soap Opera star or the end of Reality T.V.?  WE morbidly chase ambulances faster than attorneys. Eyes and ears fix and attune to the latest fad and juiciest of gossip. Compromise after compromise what is wrong with US? Why would WE sell our souls and the souls of OUR children for some finite fix that will ultimately fail and cause US to fall? What is the end of all compromise?

“…divided WE fall.”

This is not some ‘acid’ ‘trip.’ WE are not under the influence of some mind altering chemically induced psychedelic hallucinogenic ‘experience. Well I’m not anyway and I hope most of aren’t. WE are not plugged into some virtual reality. We are not batteries to power machines of some Matrix. This is not the Adventures of Alice in Wonderland. But this world that WE live in is the direct result or the consequences of OUR choices. These choices proceed out of actions and the actions are taken from a mindset, a way of thinking about US, each other, the past and the present and the world in which WE live. Unless WE the People change, it will also be OUR future; a future mindset WE will leave with OUR posterity.

The bread on top of US is the blue pill of division. It is a mindset. The bread on the bottom of US is the red pill of a corrupt, corrupting, corruptible “system” of compromise. It is a mindset. WE the People are the jam in the middle, the ones to choose or choose not to choose the one or the other. It is a mindset. To choose them both, WE remain inside…

…Purple Haze!

But WE the People have another choice. WE can get rid of the top piece of bread and no longer accept the blue pill. WE can remove the bottom piece of bread and no longer accept the red pill. Then the purple haze will cease and OUR true colors will return and WE the People will see OUR republic one again!

America the Beautiful

Words by Katharine Lee Bates,
Melody by Samuel Ward

Maybe my sentiments are too sickeningly sweet-patriotic, but I will venture to say that most of US have never read all the verses to ‘America the Beautiful’ above, before now. Perhaps my analogies are redundant and the use of movies and fictitious stories you cannot relate to. Was ‘Purple Haze,’ drugs and the drug culture over the top? Stories are usually filled with heroes and heroines; villains and villainesses. Sometimes stories have the reluctant character, the just happened by person, when circumstances tap the shoulder and call them forth, those that respond by, [ii]There, but for the grace of God go I.”  But this is neither fiction nor a story. It is real in the sense that this non-real, “legal fiction” and corrupt “system,” are all pervading.

I would try almost anything and reuse almost anything, over and over again until WE can see. To see clearly, WE must see that which is over us, under US and within US. For this “system,” this “legal fiction,” this mindset this compromise is all pervading. What does all me, myself and I matter, if there is no liberty to continue. What does it matter if such a corrupt “system” exists among, above, below and within OUR union, if there is no will to rid ourselves of it?  What do WE matter if WE have not liberty or the means to secure it? But loss of liberty begins with some form of crisis (real or perceived) and it ends by taking more control.

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Today: The Bread on the Bottom of US – a summary

In a sandwich, there are usually two pieces of bread and something in the middle. In OUR republic, the piece of bread on top of US, WE the People are all the causes even though of good intentions, are divisive because, WE are not united. If WE are not united, WE are divided. It’s just that simple. The piece of bread on the bottom US, WE the People is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.” And in the middle of the sandwich is US, WE the People. What follows is a summary of the piece of bread on bottom of US.

Last time, WE saw that WE are the jam in the middle of the sandwich. WE the People are the only solution. It is US, WE the People that must tear down and rip out the corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system,” the “legal fiction” that has co-mingled itself within OUR republic. After those brief introductory remarks…   🙂

…the summary of the bottom piece of bread beneath US, WE the People, follows. These are the facts and they are undisputed. The conclusions are yours. The “system” removed or allowed to continue, is dependent upon an overwhelming number of US, WE the People overwhelmingly recognizing and are overwhelmingly recognized that WE are the only solution!

Please Note: Since I was born in the state of Missouri and it is known as the ‘Show Me’ state, you will see the words ‘Show me,’ repeated often below.

  1. In 1861, Congress had adjourned sine die (pronounced sign-e die-e, Latin “without a day”), to reconvene. President Abraham Lincoln summoned them back by presidential order April 15, 1861, invoking the “Extraordinary occasions” clause of the U.S, Constitution Article 2 Section 3. Congress responded as ordered and citing the same clause as the president, re-convened July 4th, 1861. No matter how one looks at this, whether they choose to use the words Martial Law or not, this was not a normal constitutional Congress that re-convened on that day. Therefore, it was an Executive Congress. If you prefer, call this an Extraordinary Occasion Congress. Even though Congress has continued to convene and adjourn since 1861, can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of this being changed since 1861? Draw your own conclusions.
  2. If the Congress was under the jurisdiction or control of the Executive Branch, how did the Judiciary operate? No matter how one looks at this, whether they choose to use the words Martial Law or not, this was not a normal constitutional Judiciary Branch. The president from the proclamation of 1861, called the military into service as the Commander in Chief, to suppress a rebellion, not to declare a war as only Congress could do. The military and/or military justice (rule by force) would replace the courts (rule by law). Therefore, it was an Executive Judiciary. If you prefer, call this an Extraordinary Occasion Judiciary. In Article 1 Section 9 of the Constitution it states in part – “The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in case of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it…” Even though the Judiciary Branch has continued to operate since 1861 and specifically 1863 under the Conscription Act ever since, can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of this being changed since 1861 or 1863? Draw your own conclusions.
  3. On February 25, 1863, The National Bank Act became federal law. It established a “system” for a national security holding body for the existence of the monetary policy of the state. The Act, together with Abraham Lincoln’s issuance of “greenbacks,” raised money for the federal government in the American Civil War by enticing banks to buy federal bonds and taxing state bank issued currency out of existence. The law was later replaced by the National Bank Act of 1864 and other such laws, including the 16th Amendment to the Constitution (income tax) ever since. Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of the control over OUR money being changed since 1863? Draw your own conclusions.
  4. In 1863, Congress passed the Conscription Act and it was signed into law by President Lincoln March 3rd, 1863. Not only did this law require people to be drafted into the military, but to enforce the law, it set up “districts” among all the northern states and when under control of the union army, all the southern states as well. While appearing constitutional among the states, in having representation in congress, the true power of enforcement was a provost-marshal of each “district.” No matter how one looks at this, whether they choose to think of or use the words Martial Law or not, this was not a normal constitutional representation of the several states. Therefore, these once sovereign and component states became Executive “district” states. If you prefer, call them Extraordinary Occasion States. Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of the jurisdiction over “district” states being changed since 1863? Draw your own conclusions.
  5. General Orders No. 100 by President Lincoln, 24 April 1863, effectively put the entire country under Martial Law. It is specifically so named in SECTION I – “Martial LawMilitary jurisdictionMilitary necessityRetaliation.” Even though Martial Law was lifted after the war, southern states re-entered the union and habeas corpus was restored, can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of jurisdiction over “district” states, the Judiciary and Legislative Branch being restored to their original Constitutional authority? Or do all remain under the jurisdiction of the Executive Branch of government? Is our entire nation still an Extraordinary Occasion nation? Draw your own conclusions.
  6. On January 31, 1865, Congress passed the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, making it law that slavery or involuntary servitude “shall not exist.” Was this an Executive Extraordinary Occasion Congress or a Constitutional Congress? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of jurisdiction to enforce this law has not and is not still, residing under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government? Draw your own conclusions.
  7. December 6, 1865, the several states ratified the 13th Amendment of the Constitution, thereby making it part of, “the law of the land.” Was this “ratification” made by sovereign and component states or were they Extraordinary Occasion “district states” under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the emphatic words of this amendment, “any place subject to their jurisdiction,” meaning, the United States Federal Government, has ever been changed? Draw your own conclusions.
  8. On June 13, 1866, Congress passed the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. Was this passed by a Constitutional Congress or an Executive Extraordinary Occasion Congress? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the emphatic words of this amendment, “within its jurisdiction,” meaning the United States Federal Government, has ever been changed? Draw your own conclusions.
  9. On July 9th, 1868, the several states ratified the 14th Amendment, making it a part of the “law of the land,” the U.S. Constitution. Were these sovereign and component states or the Extraordinary Occasion “district” states of 1863?  Does this Amendment 14 Section 1, name a new class of citizenship? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the emphatic words of this amendment, “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” referring to the citizens and their relationship to the jurisdiction of the United States Federal Government, has ever been changed? Draw your own conclusions.
  10. From the ratification February 3, 1870, with the 15th Amendment added to the U.S. Constitution, was this made a part of “the law of the land,” by sovereign and component states or Extraordinary Occasion “district” states? Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the emphatic words of this amendment, “citizens of the United States” Amendment 15 Section 1, referring to the citizens and their relationship to the jurisdiction of the United States Federal Government, has ever been changed? Draw your own conclusions.
  11. February 3, 1913, the several states ratified the 16th Amendment which allowed the Federal Government to collect income taxes “from whatever sources derived.” Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record that the necessary ¾ of the states actually ratified this law, as it is written, in the U.S. Constitution? Even if you could, were these states sovereign and component states or Extraordinary Occasion “district states? Draw your own conclusions.
  12. Amendments 17 – 27 from 1913 to 1992, to the U.S. Constitution, were these ratified by sovereign component states or Extraordinary Occasion “district” states? Please understand that I am not advocating the return of slavery or the denial of ‘the vote’ to all eligible citizens regardless of race, color, creed, sex or legal age. The questions are not to the intention of these amendments or even their effectiveness, but the jurisdiction; control over them and were they proposed by a Constitutional Congress or a Extraordinary Occasion Executive Congress, and were they ratified by Constitutional State Legislatures or Extraordinary Occasion, Executive State “district” Legislatures?
  13. Article 1 Section 8. U.S. Constitution in part reads: – “To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States,…” This is obviously referring to what we know as, Washington D.C. or the “District” of Columbia. In 1871, the Congress passed the Organic Act of 1871. – CHAPTER 62, 1871 16 United States Statutes at Large 419 FORTY FIRST CONGRESS SESSION III . CHAPTER 62, 1871 CHAP. LXII. —“An act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled, That all that part of the territory of the United States included within the limits of the District of Columbia be, and the same is hereby, created into a government by the name of the District of Columbia, by which name it is hereby constituted a body corporate for municipal purposes, and may contract and be contracted with, sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, have a seal, and exercise all other powers of a municipal corporation not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the provisions of this act.” The original intent of the Constitution is that no state would have an unfair advantage or control of the seat of OUR united central government. Congress was given the exclusive control, to govern this “district,” the District of Columbia. Even as a “body corporate” it was not to be and is, not inconsistent with the Constitution. It is set up as a republic etc. It does have a constitution. Its physical boundaries are confined to 10 square miles. However, can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of items numbering 1 -12 above, have ever been changed since 1861? Therefore, this seat of government, this “District” of Columbia, Washington D.C., incorporates the Extraordinary Occasion “district” citizens, the Extraordinary Occasion “district” states, with exclusive control over both its “district” states and its “district” citizens by the Extraordinary Occasion Congress. The Extraordinary Occasion Congress and the Extraordinary Occasion Judiciary remain under the jurisdiction of the Extraordinary Occasion Executive Branch and ultimately with the president of the United States. This is the “system” of which I have referred to so often as, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.”  It is “legal fiction.” It is interpretation, legalese, legal speak and a mindset established under “extraordinary Occasions,” since 1861. Since 1861, it has continued to operate to the present-day.  As such, it is not inconsistent with the Constitution as it is set up as republic and a corporate form of government with a constitution. But it has “exclusive” jurisdiction, power and control over the entire country, and its people. OUR republic and OUR constitution, and OUR unalienable rights remain hidden under its veil of secrecy. It is not a person, persons or a party’s secrecy, but the secrecy or hidden self, of itself. This is not a conspiracy in that there is no single person, persons or a party to blame. It is what it is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.” Most people under it cannot see this anymore than most people that operate it. All are “useful idiots” until all can see it, know how to tear it down and rip it out of OUR republic and DO IT which is to – RIP IT DOWN AND TEAR IT OUT! Can anyone Show me the day, time, and record of this being changed since 1861? Can anyone Show me that all the laws and even amendments to OUR Constitution since 1861, have ever been amended, rescinded, canceled or overturned since 1861? Can anyone Show me that these are not the facts and that they are not undisputed? Draw your own conclusions.

To those of US, WE the people that have long wondered or felt in OUR ‘gut’ and to those that now wonder or feel in their ‘gut’ that something is seriously wrong in OUR republic, can anyone Show me that it is not this corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system” which explains it?

The bread on top of US, WE the People with all the almost innumerable causes and multiple directions, can anyone Show me that these do not divide US and even though good intentioned, prevent US from being united?

The bread on the bottom of US, WE the People with all its intricate tentacle like details; exclusive jurisdiction and control over US, WE the people, OUR Country, OUR States, OUR government, OUR republic and thus preventing the normal flow of OUR Constitution, controls it as well, can anyone Show me that it is not a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system”?

The jam in the middle of this sandwich is US, WE the People.

This sandwich is eating US, WE the People, you and me, OUR public servants, OUR nation, OUR, republic, OUR Constitution and the future security of OUR liberty; OUR unalienable rights and OUR posterity.

WE are being eaten alive!

How to Restore, WE the People!

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Here is where we are so far:

The List (simplified)

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

2.   The 9/12 Project?

3.   ‘The Commerce Clause?

4.   Convening a Constitutional Congress

5.   Hope that the present circumstances will change and the will of WE the People will be implemented?

6.   Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People in future elections?

7.   Remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates?

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

Today: How To Restore WE the People

WE the People in order to form a more perfect union…,” must understand that it is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system which has undermined OUR republic, ever since 1861. WE the People must understand that this system started at the Executive Branch of the federal government and worked downward through the Legislative and Judiciary Branches, to the once sovereign states and finally, to WE the People. WE the People must understand that OUR republic began with WE the people, and a corrupt system worked downward to WE the People. WE the People must understand that WE need to work backwards or reverse engineer OUR republic. WE the People must understand that OUR republic still exists. WE the People must understand that OUR republic started with US, WE the People and it can only be restored by US, WE the People!

How do WE the People restore OUR republic? The answer is so simple and it begins with US, WE the People!

WE the People with unalienable rights (rights which cannot be taken or forfeited) decided to secure those rights for all of US, WE the people. WE would form a bond, a union. The forefathers and foremothers of US, WE the People of 13 colonies in 1776, decided individually, mutually and together to appoint, designate or vote for certain servants to represent US in the Continental Congress. The separate and individual colonies voluntarily decided and unanimously declared OUR independence.

One could certainly view the bonds formed were compulsory and out of fear that unless they were united together, they would fall separately. My view is that those decisions were of wisdom knowing that unless they united they would fall. And the decisions to unite were from bonds stronger than fear. For what other reason, than the mutual love of independence and liberty, would they have united against an enemy so formidable that they had little if any chance of defeating? But unite they did and win they did!

After securing OUR individual and unified independence, WE the People voluntarily formed individual, separate and independent, sovereign states. Once again, WE the People sent representatives to serve OUR will, to the Constitutional Congress. By 1789, WE the people of the several sovereign and independent states voluntarily entered into a union (one by one) of a republic around a Constitution, with limited powers granted to a central government. Each separate, individual and sovereign state had its own voluntary constitution; its own constitutional republic, by the will of its own people.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence

OUR first Constitution was a confederation. OUR second was a federation. By definition the difference between a confederation and a federation is that the membership of the member states in a confederation is voluntary, while the membership in a federation is not. This definition and this assumption are FALSE within the confines of OUR republic; OUR Constitutional government. The federalists argued with the anti-federalists over this very thing in the 1700’s and it also invariably led to the formation of the Confederation of States, from the so called American Civil War.

WE do have a federation, a federal republic and OUR Constitution is the supreme law of OUR country. WE do have a democratic republic. A democracy is the rule by majority whereas a republic is the rule by law. So how could these seemingly contradictory elements possibly coexist or be in harmony? The answer is found first in OUR unalienable rights (rights which cannot be taken or forfeited) and government “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” (WE the People.). All of these centers upon one single word ‘confer,’ as opposed to ‘transfer.’

The individual is sovereign, endowed with certain unalienable rights. Therefore OUR states are sovereign and OUR country is a sovereign nation. Together, WE mutually and voluntarily agreed to form a union among US of the separate and sovereign, component states. WE sent servant representatives to represent US. WE mutually and voluntarily agreed to a Constitution and to form a government with limited powers, and separate branches to secure OUR unalienable rights. To expedite matters, WE voluntarily agreed to settle many of OUR disagreements by the principles of democracy or by a majority. WE have transferred none of OUR individual rights, those rights which cannot be taken or forfeited, to anyone or to any thing! WE have simply conferred certain powers to be executed by the government, by the consent (permission, will etc.) of the governed which is US, WE the People.

Originally in OUR first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation stated that to change the Constitution, all member states had to unanimously agree. Another distinction was that if the central government needed anything, from the separate, sovereign and component states like taxes etc., the central government would have to ask for it. Yet another distinction between OUR first and second Constitution was the idea of a perpetual union.  There are other differences between the two constitutions, but for now, WE are focusing on these three. But all the distinctions between the two constitutions, proceed from the individual unalienable rights and the consent of the governed which is US, WE the People!

Imagine a national election. Would WE the People all agree on the same person to become president? Can you imagine that if under invasion by some foreign entity that the sovereign states could unanimously act in time to respond? Could you imagine the government, in order to fund the response to such an invasion, having to wait until the sovereign states all unanimously and voluntarily agreed to provide the funds? Would these things be impossible, No! Is it probable that WE would not all voluntarily agree or act in time, Yes! So here are some practical applications where a democratic republic could continue to function, while still securing OUR individual and sovereign rights.

In the first Constitution, the government would need to ask US for money and each of the sovereign states by the consent of those sovereign citizen governments would have to voluntarily agree, but they could also voluntarily disagree. In OUR second Constitution, it is more like OUR government just sends a bill, which WE the People have voluntarily and mutually agreed to pay.

The ideas of a perpetual union were stricken from OUR second Constitution and would logically allow secession among the several states. How can I write these things?

In the preamble to our Constitution it states clearly the following:

“…in Order to form a more perfect Union

The constitution was not considered the document of a perfect union, but “a more perfect union.” If it was not a perfect union, why should it remain a perpetual union? That is neither its intent nor its purpose!

Read the above excerpt to The Declaration of Independence again. Then read the following, also from the same document.

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

Excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence

Whose “right” and whose “duty” (responsibility) is it, “to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security?” It is the right and the responsibility of US, WE the people.

So here WE have the reconciliation of seemingly contradictory words, phrases and concepts as: Confederation, Federation, Republic, Democracy, and Sovereign. All these have proceeded out of the People, by the People and for the People! The rights of the individual are unalienable. They can not be taken, forfeited, transferred or even conferred. WE the People do not transfer or confer rights. Privileges and even some freedoms can be transferred and these are inalienable rights, not unalienable rights.

What is an inalienable right? For example, years ago Coors beer was only available in Colorado and in Kansas. If you lived in a border state, you had the freedom, the privilege and the inalienable right to buy beer in Colorado or Kansas and take it to your state for consumption, but not for sale. Now one can purchase Coors Beer from wherever it is sold (provided that you are of legal age to purchase it). The only difference is the price difference based on taxes and the law of supply and demand (whatever the market will bear) and what the seller can get for it. By the way, Miller Brewing Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin now owns Coors, but that’s another story.

WE the People confer power, limited powers to governments to secure the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. This is the only thing that may be construed as being perpetual, OUR unalienable rights!

It has only been through crisis (real or perceived) and interpretation of OUR laws that WE the People have experienced more power being executed by our governments, over the past many years and especially, since 1861. It must be clear, one last time that governments derive their just powers by OUR consent, OUR mutual, voluntary and individual consent. This nation did NOT begin and does NOT continue without US, WE the people! Above all, each of US, WE the People have unalienable rights. Each of US, WE the People are equal and therefore each equally powerful! Do I understand this power? Do you? Do WE, understand this power?

If you and I and If WE the People understand OUR individual and unified power because of OUR unalienable rights, then the HOW to Restore, WE the People rests upon sovereign rights!

In a sense, WE do not need to restore US, WE the People. It is more of recognition of what WE already have. What WE already have cannot be restored in the concept of restoring something that is damaged, altered, changed or missing. Sovereign rights, no matter how they are defined, are rights. They are OUR rights! Whether these sovereign rights have come from a monarch, by God, or by default as the rights were just always in existence, they are still rights. They are unalienable and sovereign rights that cannot be taken, forfeited, transferred or conferred, with or without OUR consent! If this were not true, they would not be unalienable rights, they would be inalienable rights which could be taken, forfeited, transferred or conferred. But they are not!

As this nation of sovereign individuals that mutually and voluntarily agreed to form sovereign states united, to mutually and voluntarily form a sovereign nation constituted, it so continues or can be changed by WE the People, if WE the People so will.

From 1776, empowerment of, by and for the people went up to government – limited. From 1861, legal fiction empowerment went down from the government to the people with seemingly power unlimited. Where it stands right now is with US, WE the People. It is OUR right and OUR responsibility to send the message of, by, and for the People that governments works for US. WE do not work for the government. This is the recognition of OUR individual and sovereign unalienable rights. And it begins again where it has always been, with each one of US, WE the People. It begins with the recognition of our individual sovereign rights in the sovereign state where WE live and with the governor of OUR sovereign state. This is the solution. It is so very simple. If you recall or look at a previous post, it has already been brought up. See:

The Most Important Person

So what is involved in the recognition of OUR sovereign rights? It is nothing different than what WE the People already do and that is, WE vote. But the distinction here is not what particular person or party WE vote for, but what office and how. The office is the governor of OUR particular state. The how is by voting for this governor to be the governor of OUR sovereign, individual and component state. How do WE the People do that? The point here is not necessarily to change the person, persons or party WE the People vote for or when WE vote, but HOW WE vote. The HOW is that our votes are recognized as sovereign citizens for a sovereign governor of OUR separate, sovereign, individual state, among the states voluntarily united in OUR republic.

For a long time now, I have promised you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! I have in part, kept my promise in this post of this blog. Is this too simple? WE rarely believe, trust or accept simplicity, in the complex world in which WE live. Are WE ready to believe, trust and accept a simple solution, to re-forming “a more perfect union?”

The solution has been given! What remains to be seen is HOW; WE the People can apply the solution. It too, is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue with…

Re-Forming “a more perfect union”

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Here is where we are so far:

The List (simplified)

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

2.   The 9/12 Project?

3.   ‘The Commerce Clause?

4.   Convening a Constitutional Congress

5.   Hope that the present circumstances will change and the will of WE the People will be implemented?

6.   Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People in future elections?

7.   Remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates?

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

Today: Re-Forming “a more perfect union”

All throughout this blog, I have taken great pains and time and perhaps your liberties, in trying to expose a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system and what has been tried or is being tried, in order to remove it.

Analogies of this system have been compared with Alice in Wonderland, the virtual world of the Matrix, as a trap, reverse engineering and with such words as fake, false, non-real and even non-constitutional. All of these analogies and words may be understood under the term, ‘Legal Fiction,’ because this is what it is!

Based on the premise that WE the People sense or feel that something is wrong or amiss in our system of government, this blog has endeavored to show what some have tried or are doing about this system, and why these efforts have failed or will ultimately fail. Here is a summary of these efforts and why they will not work:

1.  To try and overthrow the government will not work because of the military. The military is under the command of the Commander and Chief, the President of the United States. As WE have seen and according to ‘Legal Fiction’ and non-constitutional laws under the essential acts of Martial Law, there has not been a constitutional president and therefore, no constitutional commander and chief of the military, since 1861.

2.  The 9.12 Project will not work because even though it has helped to draw attention to problems and have helped to remove corrupt persons and practices, on September 12, 2001, OUR bonds were more formed over fear from what happened to this nation on September 11, 2001. WE the People need to become Un-divided and bond together for principle; OUR republic and not from fear.

3.  Challenging the ‘Commerce Clause’ in the Constitution won’t work, because the Judiciary Branch of government has for years, interpreted the original intent of this clause, have always sided with their own decisions when challenged and both the Judiciary Branch of government and the “district” states are under the jurisdiction of the federal government, the Executive Branch and ultimately, the president.

4.  Convening a Constitutional Congress won’t work, because it is not possible from a practical standpoint alone, to amend the 100’s and 1,000’s of other laws not in the Constitution affecting, effecting and infecting OUR republic nor does it address the cause, which is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible “system.”

5.  To just hope that things will change on their own won’t work, because what is in motion generally continues to stay in motion. The whole purpose of change is to change, not to keep things they way they are or to just hope they change.

6.   To hope that the other party will get its act together won’t work, because knowingly or not, they are part of a corrupt system. It’s the system that must be removed, not necessarily a person, persons or party.

7.  To remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates wont work, because anything that keeps US divided, divides US. Besides that, until WE the People can see the problem, WE cannot see the solution?

8.  Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

Each of the above 1-7 items are actually important as to re-forming “a more perfect union.” They are parts of the whole. As parts, each only addresses parts of the problem which is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. #8 which is where we are now, is the re-forming of “a more perfect union.” I did not write re-forming a perfect union and neither did the Constitution from which these words were written. It was “a more perfect union,” in the original. If they would have meant to form a perfect union, they would have written, a perfect union.

The words are a figure of speech which gives emphasis to the goal of perfection which all should strive for, even though perfection is not possible by imperfect beings. If these words were literal they would make no sense because, you cannot make something more perfect that is already perfect. It is like another familar figure of speech – “Practice makes perfect.” If that were a literal statement, one would logically have to have, perfect practice.

But WE the People need to get back to the goal of, the formation or the forming of “a more perfect union.” To do this, WE the People need to re-form “a more perfect union.” To understand this, imagine the following:

Let’s say its movie night at your house. You decide to have some ice cream only it is rock hard in your freezer. You remove the round quart from the freezer, take the lid off, place it into a pan and leave it for awhile to soften. Next you return to your movie and it’s a really good one. You become engrossed in the story and by the time you remember the ice cream it has totally melted. Unknown to you was a small hole at the bottom of the container. The melted ice cream leaked through the hole. Fortunately you had the foresight to place the container into a pan. As the ice cream leaked from the container it had filled up inside the pan. You pick up the ice cream carton, wipe it off, find and patch the hole. Next, you pour the melted ice cream from the pan back into the carton, replace the lid and stick it back into the freezer to re-freeze – to re-form.

All the parts of OUR republic remain. WE the People just need to re-form “a more perfect union.” OUR independence started with US, WE the People. Our country, our Constitution began with US, WE the People. The corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system started at the Executive branch of government and worked its way down to US, WE the People. The system will end when WE the People work backwards (reverse engineer) where it started in 1776 and 1789 which is US, WE the People. So HOW do WE the People re-form “a more perfect union?” The answer is so simple it will absolutely amaze you!!!! Simple Yes! Easy, No!

For a long time now, I have promised you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! I will keep my promise to you in the very next post. Yes it has taken perhaps, a lot of time to reach this point. My intentions have never been to lead you on or to withhold the solution, though I have known it for some time. WE the People just need to sense that something is wrong in OUR republic and WE need to know exactly what it is. This “it” is, a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. Besides all of that, WE rarely believe, trust or accept simplicity, in the complex world in which WE live. Are WE ready to believe, trust and accept a simple solution, to re-forming “a more perfect union?”

The solution is on the way! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and the direct participation of WE the People. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue with…

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Here is where we are so far:

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

Today: USA – Engineering & Reverse Engineering

Sometimes in order to understand how something was engineered and what it looked like, when all WE have are the parts, WE need to reverse engineer. All the parts to OUR republic are still here. WE just need to put them back together – reverse engineer OUR republic, to restore OUR republic!

Last time WE looked at the word “incorporate.” Its two primary meanings are used in this blog and that is to combine parts into a whole and incorporate as a legal, municipal government. The Organic Act of 1871 incorporated the capitol of OUR government, Washington, D.C. as a municipal legal corporation. Even though this law was amended in 1872 and there have been various changes up to the present-day, the city of Washington, D.C. remains a municipal corporation. If this corporation’s exclusive and exercised power by Congress is limited to 10 square miles, how would it be possible for the federal government with its seat in Washington, D.C. to exercise power over WE the People, over the states, and the Legislative and Judiciary Branches of government? The central points are the 14th amendment to the Constitution ratified in 1868, the Conscription Act of 1863 and the Proclamation of 1861 with the president calling out the military and summoning Congress to re-convene.

Things equal to the same thing are equal to each other.

The 14th amendment made, WE the People the citizens of the United States and of the state wherein WE “reside.” The jurisdiction of, WE the People accordingly, resides with the federal government.  Since the Conscription Act is technically still a valid law, the states remain “districts” These “district states” were under the jurisdiction of Congress. The presidential proclamation of 1861 took jurisdiction over the Legislative and the Judiciary Branches of government by the Executive Branch and ultimately the president. This can all be understood in light of engineering and reverse engineering.

Original Engineering

In 1776, the people of the original 13 colonies, chose, selected, elected or designated representatives who met in Philadelphia, PA to consider independence from England. With consent of the people, all 13 colonies unanimously agreed. A formal declaration was written to show the cause of independence, which was tied to unalienable rights that among these are, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” But the same document also showed that the King had violated laws of the Magna Carta, which even the king could not do. The Declaration of Independence was a legal and formal document.

Independence from England was won!

Once again, the people of the several colonies sent representatives meet for the purpose of forming a more perfect union. The Articles of Confederation became the first constitution of the voluntarily united sovereign states. After much debate, a final Constitution was written, adopted and ratified by the several sovereign states, instituting a rebuplic with limited powers granted to a central government. It devided these limited powers as checks and balances by dividing the powers to Executive, Legislative and Judiciary Branches of government.

The engineering proceeded from the people of the sovereign states, to the states, to the legislative, to the judiciary to the executive branches of government OF the people, BY the people and FOR the people.

Reverse Engineering I

Reverse engineering can be seen as taking something apart or as putting something back together.

Beginning in 1861, reverse engineering occurred at the executive branch. Next, in took jurisdiction over the military, the judiciary and Congress.

In 1863, the sovereign states were designated as districts under the jurisdiction of Congress, which was already under the jurisdiction of the executive branch and ultimately the president.

With the ratification of the 14th amendment to the Constitution in 1868, by “district sates,” WE the people became subject to the jurisdiction of the federal government and of the “district state” where WE reside. Again, the “district states” have been under the jurisdiction of the federal government since 1863 and remain so, to the present-day.

All the parts above were combined, incorporated by 1868 with the finally part of WE the People.

In 1871, OUR nation’s capitol was incorporated as a legal municipal government. An Executive Congress of the time and to the present-day has exclusive legislative power in all cases whatsoever over this government. It’s physical boundaries are limited to 10 square miles.

With the Conscription Act of 1863 still in effect, the states became and remain “district states.” In 1868 the people became “district” citizens and also citizens of the United States, the federal government, the “district” of Columbia. In 1871 the seat of government (Washington, D.C.), was incorporated as a municipal government, limited to 10 square miles with its jurisdiction administered by Executive Congresses.

Since the law of 1863 is still in effect, all the “district” states, “district” citizens and federal citizens are all subject to the District of Columbia and corporate law!

This is reverse engineering!

Like the fictional prosecutor said in the movie ‘A Few Good Men –

“These are the facts of the case.  And they are undisputed.”

Captain Ross – ‘A Few Good Men’

So from 1861 through 1871, it took ten years to reverse engineer our country to produce a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. It started at the Executive Branch of government by the president and worked all the way to the people.  The Engine of our republic so to speak, started with WE the People and worked all the way to the sovereign states and to all three branches of the central government.

To tear down and rip out this corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system, WE the People have to see think and act like those in the movie series called the Matrix a non real world very similar to the non-real republic WE think (used to think) is real. To beat the Matrix WE have to return to the “source.” In our case, the source is the republic upon which OUR nation was founded. Like the Matrix, WE need to plug into or “jack into” the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. That is the power source WE must return to. WE are not batteries, empowering some fictional machine world, but it is through US that this make-believe, fake, false, legal fiction corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system has been built and through US it can be torn down and ripped out!

The engineering OUR republic began with WE the People.

The Reverse engineering began with the Executive Branch gaining jurisdiction over the Legislative and Judiciary Branches of government. Next, it (the system) took over the states and then the people. All parts were combined or incorporated into the Executive Branch. Lastly, the seat of government (Washington, D.C.) was incorporated as a municipal government which made all the incorporated parts subject to corporate law. What is incorporated – WE the People, Inc. Reverse engineering ended with where engineering began and that US, WE the People.

Reverse Engineering II

To restore OUR republic (which is really still here), and to rip down and rip out this corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system, all WE the People need to do is reverse- engineer the process. This is playing by or contending by, the rules of the Matrix, the system. This is returning to the source which is the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. What are WE declaring OUR independence from? In 1776, the People declared independence from tyranny. Today, WE the People declare OUR independence from a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system!

Unlike the Matrix WE are not batteries, but similar to the Matrix, this system used US to construct a trap (legal fiction states and country). This system used US as bait for the trap. This system used US to capture US, WE the People. But what WE the People must understand is that this system, is dependent upon US, and without US, IT CANNOT SURVIVE!!!!

This corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system was not intentionally caused by a certain person, specific persons or a particular party. Therefore, it cannot be removed by a certain person, specific persons or a particular party. This system has woven itself into the fabric of all our lives and has been for over a 100 years. Because of this, it is difficult to lay the blame at the feet of anyone past or present. Since it is so close to the original, WE the People hardly recognize the original anymore. But it’s still here. Our republic has not changed. Our Constitution has not changed. WE the People have not changed.

Ask yourself the following questions.

Has government become too big? Is it efficient? Do the servants of the people serve the people or does it seem like we serve the servants? Should it really take over 1800 pages to make a bill in Congress that many lawyers also in Congress have not read and cannot understand? Do you feel you have more freedom, less freedom or about the same amount of freedom today as you did yesterday? Are WE under-taxed or over-taxed? Do you feel powerful or powerless? Are you confused about what is going on in this country? Are you angry? Are you frustrated?

If you have honestly answered the questions above, congratulations, your eyes are open! You know something is not quite right. What you are sensing is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. It could not have been formed without US. It is dependent upon US. But it cannot survive without US. WE the People should tear it down and rip it out. WE the people should not let die, WE the People should kill it! It cannot be fixed, repaired, rehabilitated, re-constructed or re-engineered. It is a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system. That is all it is, all that it does and all that it can ever do – corrupt anyone and anything it touches.

So HOW do WE the People, get rid of this system. OUR republic started with WE the People upward. The system started by reverse engineering, down to WE the People. So WE the People, just need to reverse engineer the system, all the way back up to OUR republic. I’ll call this, Re-forming a “more perfect union.”

Next Time: Re-forming a “more perfect union”

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! WE are in it, right now! The solution is on the way! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue.

The Day the States Ceased to Exist

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Here is where we are so far:

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

Today: The Day the States United Ceased to Exist!

Previously WE saw HOW the Congress ceased to exist as a Constitutional Legislative Branch of government and became thereafter and to this present-day, an Executive Congress under the control of the Executive Branch and ultimately, the president. WE saw that both the Judiciary and Legislative Branches of government were in all actuality, under Martial Law. WE saw that despite any honorable or good intentions or that the Constitution was invoked, this was not constitutional, it was manipulation! How has this continued to this present-day and even more importantly, when did the states lose their sovereignty?

Since 1861, the country was under Martial Law. Two years later it still was and there were 3 dramatic events which started in 1862 and specifically in1863.

First, on September 22, 1862, Lincoln issued a presidential order which was the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation. It declared the freedom of all slaves in any state of the Confederate States of America that did not return to Union control by January 1, 1863. The second presidential order was The Emancipation Proclamation issued
January 1, 1863, which freed slaves from specific areas in 10 specific states. For our purposes here, both of these orders will merge as one, for the year 1863.

Second, was the Conscription Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Lincoln, March 3, 1863. This law called for a national draft to be implemented, divided the country into districts and provided for the enforcement of the law by a provost-marshal (military control).

Conscription Act

SEC. 4.

And be it further enacted, That, for greater convenience in enrolling, calling out, and organizing the national forces, and for the arrest of deserters and spies of the enemy, the United States shall constitute one or more, as the President shall direct, and each congressional district of the respective states, as fixed by a law of the state next preceding the enrolment, shall constitute one: Provided, That in states which have not by their laws been divided into two or more congressional districts, the President of the United States shall divide the same into so many enrolment districts as he may deem fit and convenient.

SEC 8.

And be it further enacted, That in each of said districts there shall be a board of enrolment, to be composed of the provost-marshal, as president, and two other persons, to be appointed by the President of the United States, one of whom shall be a licensed and practicing physician and surgeon.

Conscription Act (March 3, 1863)

This was and in effect, martial law. Just a short time after the public became aware of the new law, riots broke out across the country. The worst riot occurred in New York City, NY and lasted for three days, destroying much of the city and cost the lives of many. Not only was the Congress and the Judiciary under Executive control by the president, so were the states and would include the southern states when under control of the union.

The third event of 1863, was when the term ‘Martial Law’ was literally put into force.

General Orders No. 100 : The Lieber Code

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF ARMIES OF THE UNITED STATES IN THE FIELD

Prepared by Francis Lieber, promulgated as General Orders No. 100 by President Lincoln, 24 April 1863.

Instructions for the Government of Armies of the United States in the Field, prepared by Francis Lieber, LL.D., Originally Issued as General Orders No. 100, Adjutant General’s Office, 1863, Washington 1898: Government Printing Office

SECTION I

Martial LawMilitary jurisdictionMilitary necessityRetaliation

General Orders No. 100 : The Lieber Code

So Congress was under jurisdiction of the military as was the judiciary and all of the states under the union in the north and any state in the south where union forces were able to subdue. The districts were already defined in the Conscription Act.

At the conclusion of the conflict and after the surrender of the south, Martial Law was lifted from all states except for Missouri (they seemed to like it). Martial law was later lifted in Missouri, by military action, sometime after the assassination of President Lincoln.

By proclamation (executive order) of the president in 1861, Congress became an Executive Congress, not a Constitutional Congress and it so remains to this present-day. The legal fiction states and legal fiction country from 1861 became law passed by the Executive Congress and signed by the president in the Conscription Act of 1863, designating the former sovereign states as “districts.” These “districts” (areas in and including the several states), have never been rescinded or  cancelled by any president or Congress since, or overturned by any Supreme Court!

Theses districts (former sovereign states) are still,

under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government!

This corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system took jurisdiction over the Legislative, Judiciary Branches of the Federal Government and of the several states, placing it into the Executive Branch and ultimately, the president. It would need only to take jurisdiction over WE the People.

Next Time: The Day WE the People, Ceased to Exist

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! WE are in it, right now! The solution is on the way! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation.

Re-writing History

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Here is where we are so far:

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are working on this Now!

Today: Re-writing History

Happy President’s Day!

It is important to set the record straight. I am neither a northern nor southern sympathizer. While I presently reside in the state of New York, one of the original 13 colonies and one of original sovereign states of the States United, I was not born here. I was born in Missouri, also a sovereign state until 1863. As I was growing up in school or as the radio commentator Rush Limbaugh calls it, “screwel,” I was taught many things which I thought were true. Remember what Mark Twain said (also from Missouri).

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”

– Mark Twain

Anyway, my “schooling” taught me that Missouri was a border state during the conflict of the states in the 1800’s. Notice in this blog how I seem reluctant to ever write the words “Civil War?” I am reluctant; hesitant to write the words as it was neither civil nor ever technically a war. But there were some in the north that favored the north and some in the south that favored the south. So if it means anything to you, I was born as the middle child in my family, in a middle state in the country that was in the middle as to supporting the so called Civil War. Does this give me middle-ground status?   🙂

Just today on Television, I saw an advertisement for President’s Day. This ad and most similar ads that I have ever seen throughout my years and all across the country, show the likeness of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The first is affectionately referred to as the Father of OUR country. Lincoln is generally thought of as, “Honest Abe,” the Patient Sufferer, the Great Emancipator and the Savior of OUR Union. This is what I grew up to believe and these ideas still continue. Perhaps if you live in the south, were born and raised in the south, you were taught something different? Perhaps through this blog you may have been shocked in seeing a different perspective than what you were taught about the man? Trust me, I was shocked! I grew up respecting the man every time I held a penny in my hands, when I visited his memorial in our nation’s capitol and in reading such works as the Gettysburg Address.

But I am not here in this blog, to either defend or defame the man. I am not here to defend the union or the confederacy. I do not know if attacks by either side were justified. But I do believe the southern states had and have every right to secede, no matter what were their true intentions. I do not know the heart of Lincoln or the hearts of those pro-union, anymore than I know the heart of Jefferson Davis or the hearts of those pro-confederate. Am I glad that our friends, families, neighbors and citizens of the south are still part of the States United in America? Yes I am, but the result of this re-unification does not justify its means. This blog is not to continue any division among US, WE the People, and in this regard, I do not care who was right, who was wrong or what their true intentions were then or today. The truth is, WE the People were all screwed! History was re-written. A simple explanation of re-writing history would be as follows.

1 + 1 + 1 = 3 is a true statement or fact, but 1 + 1 = 2 is also, a true statement or fact. The difference is that in the second equation, something was left out and it completely changed the outcome. This, I would call re-writing history. The missing (1) is not missing, it still exists. It was just left out of the history books. You cannot change history. The only exception to this would be in a work of fiction. Or unless you can prove to me (sorry I was born in Missouri, ‘The Show Me State’) that you are some space/time traveler, can take me with you, and I am able to observe you change the Space-Time Continuum, its not happening! If you cannot do that, NO ONE CAN CHANGE HISTORY!  What could be done and has been done; is being done today however, is the re-writing of history. Add this, delete that, multiply this and divide that and the result (consequence) is history that has been re-written and taught to US, WE the People in OUR “screwels.”

Note: “screwels” – is what radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh calls “schools.”

The ‘stuff’ of this blog is certainly not taught in OUR “screwels” and it is not being communicated through all the various outlets of OUR mass-media. Like the fictional character Neo in the ‘Matrix’ movies, for a long time I’ve felt like there was something really wrong in the world. Perhaps you have too? I‘ve just wanted to know what it is and if possible, what could I do about it. I hope I am not alone.

I am often asked, “How do you know all this stuff?” The answer is that I research and read. Maybe I am somewhat of a cynic and don’t trust much of anything I read, so I keep reading and verifying and comparing one thing similar with another. Some of what has been found may be attributed to my former background as an investigative journalist. Investigative journalists used to be people that looked for answers, not to prove what they already believed. But mostly, it is probably from being born and raised in the “Show Me State.” I have often jokingly told others that the state bird of Missouri is the mule, a symbol of such stubbornness that sometimes only a 2 by 4 across the head can make a point with a mule. But when I finally get it, I get it!   🙂

More importantly, I am also often asked, “Why don’t I know this or why haven’t others picked this up?” I cannot answer that, but I do believe there are others that do understand a lot of this artificial U.S.A. stuff. They just approach it differently and they deal with it in different ways.

Difference makes all the difference, when it comes to history that has been and is being re-written, even at this very moment.

If in our gut WE feel something is wrong or amiss, but not knowing what it is, what are the choices as to what to do about it? WE either keep digging or through frustration; being spent of energy and resources, just give up and get on with something else?

WE the People were born here or came here. OUR forefathers were already here, came here for Liberty or they were brought here, sometimes against their will. The point is that WE the People of today are all here right now. WE are the People of many races, colors, cultures, religions or without religious beliefs. WE have different opinions and think politically differently.  WE are different in OUR ages. WE are of different sexes. WE have different abilities, skills, and talents, levels of intellect, socio-economic backgrounds and interests. WE are spread all across this land. WE live in different cities, towns, in the wilderness, in the desert, on mountains, on the farms, by the sea, by lakes, streams, ponds and in every conceivable location. WE live in different neighborhoods, with others and alone. WE celebrate OUR differences. But all these differences are not what made this country the greatest country on earth. OUR differences will not continue to make US the greatest country on earth either!

What made US great and can make US great again is OUR willingness and ability to unite. OUR differences can be used to divide US or keep US divided. WE the People are very much divided. It is what has been left out and it is history that has been re-written and is being re-written that keeps US divided. Let each one of US lay aside OUR differences and come together as WE the People United. It is the ONLY WAY TO RESTORE OUR REPUBLIC and OUR RIGHTS to, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!!!

Next Time: The Day the States United, Ceased to Exist

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! WE are in it, right now! The solution is on the way! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue.
