Introduction to the Republic
INTRODUCTION TO THE REPUBLIC
The Declaration of Independence established the foundation for several key aspects of what would eventually become the Republican Form of Government guaranteed to every State by the Constitution for the United States of America (Article IV, Section 4).
We hold these truths to be self evident:
• All men are created equal (separate and equal station)
• They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights
• That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men
• Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed
• 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.
In order to understand the foundation of the Government of the United States it is important to not only understand the words that are used in our founding documents and laws but also the context and the paradigm from which they came. It is well documented that many of the Founders were men who believed in the Bible. The 1st Amendment that was ratified years later prohibits the Congress from enacting any law that establishes or prohibits the free exercise of one’s religion, however, because of their beliefs many of the words and concepts that are part of the foundation of the United States are defined by Scripture and are discussed here for clarity and because they are fundamental to the authority of We the People.

In the beginning God created man (Gen 1:26). And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Gen 1:28)
These two verses establish our authority as men to have separate and equal station among the powers of the earth. It is from Scripture that we get the word “dominion” which is defined as “Sovereign or supreme authority; the power of governing and controlling.” Unalienable Rights cannot be taken or given away.
We the People delegated “just powers” by our consent to institute the government of the United States to “secure these rights.” All political power is inherent in the People. We the People ARE the government. If there was no government WHO would perform the duties that were delegated to it? We the People would, right? And, if the People did not enumerate it, they reserved it to themselves. Therefore, if we did not give the power, we retained it. Once we gave it, we are subject to it and must abide in it.
A Republican Form of Government is “Rule of Law”, not politics, religion, special interests and the like.
In September of 1787 the Continental Congress adopted the Constitution for the United States of America and submitted it back to the State Legislatures for ratification. So the supreme Law of the Land was not a work of just one political body (the Continental Congress/federal government but also required the approval (ratification) of at least nine of the thirteen original States for it to become Law. This was accomplished by June of 1788 when New Hampshire became the ninth State which gave the Constitution for the United States force and effect. By September of 1788 the Founders had passed a resolution to establish a seat of government, when to hold elections and the date that the Government of the United States would begin operations under the Constitution; March 4, 1789.
The Constitution is widely misunderstood. Some believe that this is where we derive our Rights as Americans. Some believe that the Constitution is a “living document”. Some recognize it as a mere inconvenience. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”. The reason that the People of the United States suffer at the hands of an imposter government is for “lack of knowledge”. The Constitution for the United States of America is a “system” of governance that was established by the consent of the People. Shouldn’t we KNOW what it says? The reason it does not “appear” to work is because most do not know what it says? After all, how can you follow something you have never read?
The Constitution is a body of orders that the People issued to the government to secure their Rights and provide for the things that we have in “common” among the States. The government Officials and Members of Congress do not answer to the People, they answer to the Constitution. The Constitution answers to the People!
The Constitution defends itself, it requires “support”. That is what we are lacking in the United States at this time — “support” for the Constitution. The oath that the Congress takes is “to support the Constitution of the United States”. Their oath is not to the People, it is to support the orders of the People which is embodied in the Constitution, Treaties and Statutes of the United States first, and then to the State governments and what is not enumerated is reserved to the People. There is a great misconception that the People are in charge of the government. That is simply not so, the government answers to the Constitution, the Constitution answers to the People.
The issues that we face today in America are because the Constitution has not been supported! It would surprise MOST of America to learn that there are NO political parties in the federal government! The People did not enumerate in the federal Constitution the power for the government to be partisan in ANY way! Their only duty is to support the Constitution!
The Constitution secures the Rights of the People. The powers not given to the federal government were reserved to the State OR to the People. The People never surrendered Rights or authority; they delegated powers to the government to perform certain duties in a specific way. And they provided for the government to remove any individual who failed to comply with the duties as ordered. It is a marvelous system!
In the first session of Congress, the Founders passed the Judiciary Act of 1789. In section 34 of that Act is says: “And be it further enacted, That the laws of the several states, except where the constitution, treaties or statutes of the United States shall otherwise require or provide, shall be regarded as rules of decision in trials at common law in the courts of the United States in cases where they apply.” Further, in 1791 The Legislatures of the several States ratified the “Bill of Rights”. The 5th Amendment to the Constitution says: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
During the decade surrounding the events of the Civil War the Constitution for the United States of America was usurped through unconstitutional acts. The oath that was established for Congress was changed so that Congress became Officers and not Members who hold seats. In a Republican Form of Government, those who are elected or appointed go “in our place” to “support the Constitution”. If no power is given, no action can be taken. Once established, the Constitution requires “amendment” by a specific process and the Rights of the People cannot be “legislated” away.
The Congress also RE-defined words that have a significant impact on our lives today and mixed the Republican Form of Government that was authorized by the People with a corporate democratic structure. This commingling of terms, jurisdictions, law forms and politics has led the American People into slavery. The People have been RE-created as corporate fictions, never authorized by the Constitution.
The Republic for the United States of America is comprised of People just like you. One must be a citizen of the United States to vote, hold office or be an elector in the Republic. It is NOT the wicked thing that the Corporation called the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA makes it out to be.
We were born here in America or naturalized according to Law. We have taken a stand for the truth and invite you to join us in that plight. There is no need for violence. We do not require the permission of a fiction to maintain the form of government that WE authorized. No person in the United States may be deprived of life, liberty or property. As stated above, the laws of the States are the measure of Law, not the precedent, case law, administrative process, etc…that we have been subjected to all our lives.
There are those who would attempt to have us believe that we CAN be deprived of our Rights without due process. How can that be true if our Rights are God given and unalienable? It simply requires the American People to not KNOW the difference. We have devoted ourselves to learning and disseminating the truth and ask you to join us.
There are a number of ways to “support the Constitution”. Every person born or naturalized in the United States is a citizen of the United States and has unalienable Rights. That is what the Constitution secures to you, and the Republic for the United States of America “supports” the Constitution. If you are concerned about your name being associated with organizations that are not part of the Corporation and are considered to be part of a “sovereign citizen movement” we understand. We also understand that the United States corporation usurped and set aside the Republican form of government during the Civil War
Each of the several States has already been accepted into the United States and if you were born in one of those States, or naturalized into the United States, your Rights cannot be taken from you.
