The United States of America is unique in may ways. It is the first constitutional Republic in written earth history. Our founding fathers risked all they had, their lives, their property, and their families to end the tyranny of British Rule and declare their independence.  They  expressed in the Declaration of Independence"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."  

These Rights are precious and are the gift of our creator.  

The Revolutionary War  that followed was eventually   won by the colonies. The Founding Fathers and their patriots became the worlds first sovereign citizens. The rights and privileges of the King of England, the ownership and the bounty of the American Colonies was now owned by the people.   They carefully crafted the Constitution of the United States of America. This document  defines the role of the Federal Government  and limits the federal and government to a set of specified areas. Some of the rights of the sovereign citizen were given to the States. The States in turn gave some of their powers to the Federal Government.   The Liberty in America is insured only if the Constitution is followed and all citizens keep a watchful vigilance and participate in the process of governing their government.

In the early Republic of The United States of America,  according to the constitution every state citizen was a  sovereign.   He owned his land outright and paid no taxes on God given rights. He owned arms without permits. He could  travel  without a license or a permit. He was superior to the State on his own land and the State was superior to the union of States.

 The United States of America was founded by devout Christian men. We gained our independence with the guidance and help of the Almighty and established a nation whose primary function is liberty and  freedom from all types of control and regulation. The Constitution and the Amendments were to LIMIT government not guarantee rights.  This is a very important point. The Constitution and Amendments limit our Federal  government to only the powers that were delegated to them.

Thomas Jefferson said "I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground; That all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the State, are reserved to the States or to the people. To take a step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition."

Many of The Founding Fathers were concerned about the  inevitable growth of government and insisted that there be some additional amendments to the Constitution before they would ratify. This  concern  was expressed in the Preamble of the Bill of Rights. It is noteworthy that we hardly ever see the Preamble to the Bill of Rights in print. The clarity of the authors worry of Government over expansion is clearly written  in this preamble. The limitation of federal and State duties is further enforced by   the Tenth amendment.

Our founders clearly limited the powers of our government. They even wrote in some very important specific things that the government could never touch in the Bill of Rights just in case the people did not stay vigilant.  The Constitution and the Bill of Rights  need to be adhered to exactly if we are to keep our liberty. There are no changes necessary in the pre-civil war constitution.

The hierarchy of power according to our constitution  is:

Sovereign Citizen


Federal Government

Sovereign citizens created the States who created the federal government.  This is how it was set up. We the people command our civil servants.  Servants do not rule, they obey. 

What happened? How come we are now the commanded and our civil servants now can command us through endless legislated hierarchies?  Oh, we are not ruled by our civil servants? Try and not volunteer to participate in Social Security or do not submit the voluntary assessment forms and see who is telling who what to do. Questions regarding these issues are simply ignored.   We have allowed the Constitution to be ignored. Just as Jefferson stated " To take a step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition."  To let government out of the boundaries a tiny bit was the  big mistake that started the monstrous growth.  This governmental expansion  has ballooned to the extent that now we have a structure that employs hundreds of thousands of high priced people all working in a vast bureaucracy that ineptly manages an ever growing  legislative mountain that is almost all un-constitutional. The runaway growth of regulations and Government bureaucracy is the exact thing the Constitution should   prevent ...if it is followed.

We as a people have to be aware of these documents and what they say. We as a people have to pay attention to what is occurring or our freedom will erode away, piece by piece, until we are free no more. This has already happened to such an extent that if we do not wake up soon and have our representatives reform the Government according to our best interests and the Constitutio
