The Constitution, Part 3

united States in Distress

Michael Badnarik is a scholar of the Constitution.  He knows it better than almost anyone I’ve ever talked to.  I hope one day to attend his classes but unless he comes to my area I never will.  So thank God he has given us the ability to hear his lectures through video.  Please visit HERE to watch 7 hours of education concerning the Constitution and what your rights actually are.

In order to defend your rights, you have to know them.  How can you know if someone is violating your rights if you do not know what those rights are or where they came from?  You simply can’t.   Our current government is working very hard to make sure you don’t know what is going on.  Why else do they not teach history anymore in this country?  Isn’t it important to know where you came from and how you got there?  I was lucky enough to have history when I went to school.  But history isn’t taught in school for a very specific reason…

First we must define where your rights come from and it ISN’T the Constitution.  Your rights came to you through God, The Creator, Allah, Goddess, or whatever divine being(s) you believe in.  The Constitution defines the government whether that government be State or Federal.

Second, you must understand that Congress and the Presidents for some time now have been passing laws to take away your rights, which is ILLEGAL according to the Constitution.  Those laws are illegal from their CONCEPTION, not just once they came into being.

Third, you cannot defend what you do not understand.  It is imperative that all united States Citizens know their rights, know what is and is not illegal, and how to stand up to them.  These are the things which Michael Badnarik teaches you.  I cannot recommend enough that you watch these videos unless you are able to attend one of his classes in person.

I will not be able to do the full video, that is too much information for a blog of this kind.  I can only do about 20 minutes worth.  It is up to each of you who read this to take the time and view the videos for yourself…  If you love your country and your life, this is something you will make time for regardless of your time schedules.  On to the video…

The reason we separated from England was because of taxation without representation.  The King of England went to war with Spain and France and because of the expense of those wars he decided to tax the colonies heavily.  In other words, we were taxed without representation. Because of this we eventually crafted the Declaration of Independence.  We informed the King that we were no longer English subjects, something unheard of up to that time.  But this wasn’t what caused us to go to war with the British.  The fighting had been going on for a while.

In 1775 the British soldiers showed up in Lexington and Concord to take all of our guns.  (Sound familiar?)  The British figured that if they took our guns we couldn’t resist their rule.  And they were correct.  However, this was a definite mistake on their part as we were not about to give them up without a fight.  This resistance was what was behind the “Shot heard round the World.”

In 1776 we formalized the war by creating the Declaration of Independence.  Up until that point there was no formalize dispute with England.

The formal end to the war was the Treaty of Paris.
In an effort to minimize the importance of France in guaranteeing U.S. Independence, David Hartley the British Commissioner agreed to the American suggestion to negotiate a separate treaty without France or Spain. On the morning of September 3rd, 1783 Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and John Jay, met privately with John Hartley in his rooms at the Hotel de York and signed a treaty entitled, “The Definitive Treaty of Peace between his Britannic Majesty and the United States of America.” The Treaty was immediately dispatched to the United States Congress as Article Ten required ratification and the exchange of originals within six months.

If there is any question as to WHY it was called the Treaty of Paris instead of something else, it is because neutral territory is desired for such treaties no matter what country is having problems with any other. All will go for neutral ground.  There is a book that can be purchased from the National Archives called: “The Cornerstones of American Democracy“.  Unfortunately I am unable to provide a link to the actual book. I find the title to be inaccurate though as we are NOT a democracy as so many state, we are a REPUBLIC!

The Pledge of Allegiance

I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God,indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

The government is lying to us all the time.  One way for them to make you believe something that isn’t true is to tell you over and over again that something is what it isn’t. Full text of the definitions can be found HERE:

A Democracy

The chief characteristic and distinguishing feature of a Democracy is: Rule by Omnipotent Majority. In a Democracy, The Individual, and any group of Individuals composing any Minority, have no protection against the unlimited power of The Majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man.

A Republic

A Republic, on the other hand, has a very different purpose and an entirely different form, or system, of government. Its purpose is to control The Majority strictly, as well as all others among the people, primarily to protect The Individual’s God-given, unalienable rights and therefore for the protection of the rights of The Minority, of all minorities, and the liberties of people in general. The definition of a Republic is: a constitutionally limited government of the representative type, created by a written Constitution–adopted by the people and changeable (from its original meaning) by them only by its amendment–with its powers divided between three separate Branches: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Here the term “the people” means, of course, the electorate.

The Treaty of Paris was, in essence, a divorce decree.  We divorced ourselves from the English Crown and its system of governance.  What did the united States get?  PROPERTY!  Allodial Title to the land mass of the united States.  For the first time in our history, Citizens of this country could own property, not just get grants of land from the Crown!

So, what did England get?  Visitation rights!  The right to come here anytime they please and sell their products.  It was important to England that they not lose the customers they had here, the ability to do business with the citizens of this country.

So, before the Constitution was created, what did those here have to guide and direct them?  The Articles of Confederation. These were a loosely organized group of States.  It was a guide-line of conduct and behavior that all agreed to.  In actuality, the Constitution was originally named:  The Unanimous Declaration of the 13 united States of America.

Please NOTE: united is in SMALL letters. It is an adjective, NOT a title or a noun! The States were united in their endeavors, and this is all it meant or means today.

Definitions of adjective on the Web:

  • a word that expresses an attribute of something
  • adjectival: of or relating to or functioning as an adjective; “adjectival syntax”; “an adjective clause”
  • the word class that qualifies nouns
  • relating to court practice and procedure as opposed to the principles of law; “adjective law”

As you can see by the definition, united is a descriptive word, not a noun. States is a noun.

Now, it should be noted that the united States didn’t win the war, we just REFUSED to lose.  Washington only won two battles.  The rest of the time he was in full retreat and refused to stand and fight the British on their terms.

What helped us “win” was the fact that the King of England was engaged in two other wars, one with Spain and one with France.  He simply could not afford to spend time and troops here.  In shear frustration he granted our independence because he was unable to devote his energies to us.

Both France and Spain were loaning us money during our confrontation with England.  So, we won our independence but now France and Spain wanted their piece of the pie too.  What did they get for their money?  Well, there was a problem with that.  Each colony was printing their own money like it was going out of style.  And while they were ALL supposed to help pay off the debts from the war, few were interested in that and so no one wanted to pay the full amount.  Each colony had their excuses.

But pretty soon, no one wanted to take the money they were printing.  It was worthless.  They, the colonists, wanted REAL property for their goods.  They would trade chickens or beef or tobacco for something of compreble value, but they refused to take the paper that was being printed.

When this happened, the economy stopped!  At this point the founders of the Articles of Confederation realized that they had to go and fix those articles and quick!  Our economy was in serious jeapardy.  The founders went back to Philadelphia and scrapped the Articles of Confederation all together and started over…  This is how the Constitution came to be born.

If you think the newborn Constitution was created over night, think again.  Everyone had their own ideas about what it should and should not say, how exactly it should be written, what it was about, etc.  Fights ensued, sometimes physical ones, before all could agree to and sign the Constitution.  Benjamin Franklin turned out to be quite the mediator and kept things together.

There were 2 distinct groups involved.  Who were these groups?  There was Alexander Hamilton and his cronies who were MONARCHISTS.  And while he didn’t like King George, he liked the idea of having a King.  Liked it so much in fact he wanted to have the united States modeled after the system of government in England.  Hamilton went so far as to ask George Washington to be the first King of the united States.  Fortunately for us, George Washington said NO…

Hamilton and his group also showed up in Philadelphia with a whole new document expecting to have it easily ratified.

Then we had the Federalists party.  Definition from Michael Badnarik: Of or pertaining to a compact or league, especially a league between nations or States.

Definition of National: Of, pertaining to or maintained by a nation as an organized whole or independent unit.

So we see that a National government is ONE while a Federal government is many.  It can be expressed as The united States, (national) or THESE united States, (Federal).

Alexander Hamilton wanted a NATIONAL government but disguised his desires in calling his party the Federalists.  Think of cat and dog…  Hamilton set out to mislead people because he knew they would NEVER vote for a strong central government.

Now, Thomas Jefferson and his allies wanted the loosely organized government OR a Federal government.  Thomas Jefferson WAS a Federalist.  However, since Hamilton had already used that name, he was forced to call his group the ANTI-Federalists.

Before the Constitution was even written, our politicians were lying to us, can you imagine that???

To make their views known, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay all wrote newspaper articles trying to convince people to their way of thinking. These articles were known as the Federalists papers.

There were also articles written by Patirick Henry and others known as the ANTI-Federalist Papers.  Both books are highly recommended reading by Michael Badnarik.  Today, the excuse of most is that they really don’t know what the Founding Fathers were thinking.  This could NOT be further from the truth.  ALL their thoughts are in these two books, as they were written so long ago…

And so ends Part 3 of the Constitution.  I am perhaps 1/3rd of the way through the video and hope I have whetted your appetite for viewing the whole thing.  This is your future that is at stake.  You are responsible for what happens.  LEARN or be cattle, the choice is yours!
