A Plague of Hopelessly Inept Demands and Declarations by Anna von Reltz
My email has been jammed the past few weeks with all sorts of high-sounding "Declarations" and "Demands" and "Orders" and accusations of "Conspiracy Against the Constitution" and "Writs of Mandamus" and "Writs of......"
Well, you get the picture. All sorts of very angry people, and all of them talking in very high-tone and calling the government out in the name of "We, the People, of the United States of America".
My friend, Ron, sent me another one of these tonight, and wearily, I just had to sit down and tell him----
"Yes, but it is all totally useless and meaningless and if you take the time to listen I can tell you why."
Americans are defined as "the free, sovereign, and independent people of the United States".
NOT the "free, sovereign and independent people of the United States of America".
That is because there is no country [at least no country of ours] called the United States of America. And no National Trust established under that name.
It's the "United States Declaration of Independence" --- not the "United States of America Declaration of Independence".
Where you start seeing the words "united States of America" is in the original Constitution, called "The Constitution for the united States of America"------ but note, there is a small "u" on the word "united". It is used as an adjective describing "States of America"---- the actual name of the entity contracting for services from the federal government.
And what was the "States of America"?
It was a group of states (originally nine out of thirteen) who chose to create an association of "states" outside the already existing perpetual union created by The Articles of Confederation (1781).
Remember that in legalese, the word "of" means "without" in the sense of "within and without" or "outside of" or "belonging to" in the sense of a possession or attachment.
So "States of America" means "States Without America" or "States Outside of America" or "States Belonging to America"---- but they are not the same as the United States.
There are the States and there are the "States of States". There is the within and the without. There is the land jurisdiction of the geographically defined state referred to as the "Texas State" and there is the "State of Texas" which is a corporation in the business of providing governmental services.
So what are the "united" States of America? They are businesses providing government services to the people living inside the boundaries of the land mass called "Texas" or "Rhode Island" or "Tennessee" that united in delegating some of their "powers" --that is, services they are responsible for providing--- to a new subcontractor, an entity known as the "federal government".
Originally, there were only nine out of thirteen, but the advantages and cost efficiency of banding together to provide for self-defense and with regard to other tasks, eventually won out.
By 1868, these original "State of State" businesses had incorporated under the auspices of the State of Delaware, the only State in the Union to have a Chancery Court and to allow insurance and registration of commercial corporations ----and they formed a new organization---an international commercial corporation calling itself the "United States of America".
The United States of America formed by the "States of_________" was a private, mostly foreign-owned, multi-national corporation operating franchises under names styled as "State of Florida" and "State of Oklahoma" et alia and all these member franchises are in the business of providing government services.
So when you say, "We, the People, of the United States of America"----- what are you talking about? The only "people" involved in operating the "United States of America" are government employees, and by definition, government employees exist to serve the government----not to be served by it.
We are treated to the unlikely and ultimately farce-like spectacle of people identifying themselves as government employees---- and at the same time trying to boss the government around.
Do employees boss their employer around? Since when?
Can you think of anything more pathetic? Laughable? Sad?
The authors of these high-sounding "demands" are most likely angry, half-awake, "stubbed my toe and ran out of coffee" American State Nationals blundering around with all their assumptions about reality intact and not a clue in this world what is actually going on. They don't realize yet that they are "people of the United States" and not "People of the United States of America"---- and they probably haven't even noticed that there is a difference.
But if you want to get beyond the stumbling around and angry stage you have to notice and you have to think.
If you want to act and be recognized as Americans and give orders to the government, you have to say, "We, the People, of the United States" ------the ones who signed The Declaration of Independence, the ones who fought the Revolution, the ones who own the land of the United States, the ones who are owed the United States Trust, the ones who are NOT bound by or parties to any "Constitution" and who owe no duty of "citizenship" at all to any government.
Because "We, the People of the United States of America" are all government employees, elected officials, their dependents, etc., and they are all British Subjects, all bound and required to serve the government, and they can't order the government around because they work for the government and are dependent on the government and are considered "franchisees" of the government.
Now, isn't that a kick in the pants? Maybe someone--- you--- should explain all this to these folks? And while you are at it, tell them that even when and if you choose to reclaim your actual birthright political status as American State Nationals and even when and if you choose to act as one of the "free, sovereign, and independent people of the United States"----it is still true that you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar and it is not fair, right, or honorable to be rude and accusatory and unkind toward people who are just as confused as you were before I clued you in.
So if you feel any shred of thankfulness for the half hour I spent writing all this down for you and your friends, be as kind to the government employees as I have been to you. Show them some decency and respect and realize that they really are just here to serve you---- once you stop shouting and unwittingly claiming to be one of t
