Day 441

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 -


It was the foresight and genius of the Founding Fathers to establish the United States of America as a Republic; NOT a democracy. Yet most people today have been brainwashed into believing we have a democracy, and even the Republican politicians repeat this false mantra ubiquitously. By and large, people have come to believe this because they have been brainwashed in government schools and it is repeated often in the media and on the campaign trail. And so gradually “we the people” have quietly and willingly allowed the government to usurp our constitutionally derived power and authority over our government. To a great deal, this is resulting from our apathy, but much more than that, just plain ignorance of the power and civic responsibility we the people, as the ultimate sovereign of this nation, have under God.

In the 1950s, the phrase “under God” became our national motto, very aptly so. For He is the ultimate authority and the basis of all law, according to our Founding documents. In a democracy, the citizenry of a country directly elects its leaders, who become its sovereign rulers, with the people subservient to the elected leaders.

Thereby, when a politician calls the U.S.A. a democracy, they are admitting to you the fact that they wish to steal and give your sovereignty to the government, whereby in a republic, the government is subservient to the citizenry (the voters) and the people are the ultimate authority over its government. The citizens are therefore in a position to judge the laws passed by Congress in light of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, which declare themselves subservient to Natural Law, or God’s law.

So in its hierarchy, our Republican system of government recognizes God’s ultimate authority to which We the People are solely beholden to. We the People wrote and developed our constitution to govern ourselves, recognizing God’s ultimate sovereignty and the government’s role as subservient to the Constitution and ultimately to We the People. Every federal government official within our Republic is subservient to the Constitution and to We the People, including the President, members of Congress, judges, and even U.S. attorneys. They are all tax consumers and we are the ones who pay their salaries. They work for us, and we, who are under God’s ultimate sovereignty, must judge whether the laws they have established are allowable under the Constitution, which We the People developed to govern what they can and cannot do.

So what is the role of the federal government in our constitutional republic? This is clearly defined in the preamble to our constitution, “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.” Any role the government of the United States takes upon itself, whether by law of Congress or executive order or any other unconstitutional means, which does not adhere to these purposes set forth in the Constitution is thereby unlawful since it is not constitutional and the sixth and seventh amendments to the Constitution place the enforcement of the laws in which they write and administer to We the People. This is where We the People are provided with the significant responsibility to serve on grand juries as well as trial juries, whereby we can utilize the veto of one to nullify an unjust law or unlawful legislation. Think about this! Ultimately you or I, or any other person sitting on a jury, has more power than any judge, any prosecutor, Congress, or even the President of the United States! We the People are sovereign and the Constitution is our authority. This is why well-informed citizens should jump at the chance of being on a jury!

Think about this with me. The U.S. Constitution provides for no law enforcement powers except for that of We the People through 1) the power of the voting booth; 2) the Grand Jury; and 3) the trial jury. Only in these three ways can there be a check on whether or not our public servants are beholden to us and the Constitution We the People formed to define their proper role in their service to us. Are the laws they produce allowed as defined in the Constitution, so adequately summarized in its preamble? The only way the government has authority to enforce laws it writes is with our approval! We must make that government obey the Constitution. And remember what the Tenth Amendment says: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Therein, no state is obliged to adhere to a federal law which it is not empowered to do so by the U.S. Constitution. Think “ObamaCare,” same-sex marriage, federally mandated education dictates (the U.S. Department of Education), and much, much more!

The bottom line is that few of the citizens are taught this anymore, and they are being brainwashed into thinking the government has the ultimate authority. That is democracy. It is time parents take the responsibility of teaching basic civics and this civic responsibility to their children and start boycotting public education. It is time to vote out of office big government bureaucrats who try to buy elections through public welfare, entitlement programs, and local projects along with lots of federal taxpayer money. It is time we become the lone dissenter when necessary when citizens are tried under unjust laws or the government seeks unjust indictments. It is time pastors began declaring this responsibility to their constituents. It is time to take back our country!
