These United States Of America ... Are Not a Democracy!
by James Kraft-Lorenz (04/18/2004)
The United States of America was never intended to be a democracy. The framers and ratifiers meant to impose the stable rule of law and not the rule of men, motivated, at the instant, by whim and passion. Democracy is the antithesis of the rule of law, for it is precisely the rule of the voters: that is, rule without limits, obtaining its power from 50%, plus 1, regardless of the established law. Under demos (populace) kratos (master), from the Greek, the mere whim of the majority, right, wrong or indifferent, becomes the law. A lynch mob is democratic within this definition.

"A Republic, If You Can Keep It"
by John F. McManus (11/06/2000)
The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it." This exchange was recorded by Constitution signer James McHenry in a diary entry that was later reproduced in the 1906 American Historical Review.

The "Boston Pamphlet"
by Boston Committee of Correspondence (09/01/1772)
Alarmed by Britain’s decision to remove the colonial assembly’s right to pay the governor’s and judges’ salaries -- thus removing any power it might wield over royal officials -- a group of Boston citizens led by Samuel Adams, James Otis, and Joseph Warren formed a citizens’ committee to oppose the action. The committee compiled a three-part document soon known as the “Boston Pamphlet” and distributed it throughout the colony. The document (1) asserted the colonists’ rights as men under natural law, as Christians under God’s law in the New Testament, and as British subjects under the British constitution; (2) listed twelve violations of those rights by Britain; and (3) invited response from other Massachusetts towns. Soon over one hundred new town “committees of correspondence” had been formed in Massachusetts.

Coup d'etat
by Paul Craig Roberts (07/17/2013)
Does the FBI Consider you a Terrorist?
If you are a 'defender of the Constitution', you fit the profile
Phoenix Federal Bureau of Investigation created this flyer during Clinton's Presidency, asking the recipients to help them fight domestic terrorism. It has been confirmed by many phone calls to the FBI and Phoenix local law enforcement that such publications were being given, by the FBI, to local law enforcement. It was not intended for the general public to know such FBI domestic terrorist definitions. "Defenders of the Constitution" are listed as potential terrorists. Do you fit the domestic terrorist profile?

Our duty is to put men at the helm of the National and State Governments who will curtail these expenses and lop off all that are unnecessary until their promises are up to par, [great applause,] and then repeal your legal-tender act. That is resumption, and not by legislative enactment."

Sixth Rule
by John Adams (06/01/1788)
John Adams, in this chapter, is reviewing a 1656 work by Marchamont Nedham (1620-1678), titled "The Excellency of a free State, or the right Constitution of a Commonwealth," from which Adams quotes extensively. Notice should be made especially of the last paragraph, in which Adams outlines his views on the two legitimate functions of the right to keep and bear arms, which are for private self-defense, and for enforcing the law as a member of the general militia, under the direction of a democratically elected government (as local as possible). Note also his earlier analysis of the dangers inherent in a democratic tyranny of the majority, and, in passing, an explanation of the ancient origin of the phrase "crossing the Rubicon."
Sorry, Mr. Franklin, “We’re All Democrats Now”
by Ron Paul (01/29/2003)
At the close of the Constitutional Conventional in 1787, Benjamin Franklin told an inquisitive citizen that the delegates to the Constitutional Convention gave the people “a Republic, if you can keep it.” We should apologize to Mr. Franklin. It is obvious that the Republic is gone, for we are wallowing in a pure democracy against which the Founders had strongly warned... (Speech before House of Representatives, Jan 29, 2003)
The 13th Amendment 'Disappears'
Titles of Nobility and Honor
by The AWARE Group (02/01/2002)
Twenty years after the passage of the Bill of Rights, in January, 1810, Senator Reed proposed another "title of nobility" Amendment. On April 27, 1810, the Senate voted to pass the 13th Amendment by a vote of 26 to 1; the House resolved in the affirmative 87 to 3; and the following resolve was sent to the States for ratification. After 12 of the required 13 states had ratified the Amendment, war broke out with England, and Washington was burned along with most of the federal governments records. Was it ratified or not?

The Missing 13th Amendment
by David Dodge - Researcher, Alfred Adask - Editor (08/01/1991)
Searching for evidence of government corruption in public records stored in the Belfast Library on the coast of Maine. By chance, they discovered the library's oldest authentic copy of the Constitution of the United States (printed in 1825). Both men were stunned to see this document included a 13th Amendment that no longer appears on current copies of the Constitution.
The Original 13th Amendment
Constitution for the United States of America
by The AWARE Group (02/01/2002)
The Founders held an intense disdain and distrust of "Nobility" as a result of a long history, during Colonial times, of abuses and excesses against the Rights of Man and the established Common Law and Constitutions by the "Nobility", and therefore placed in the new Constitution two injunctions against acceptance of Titles of Nobility or Honor or emoluments from external sources. The Revolutionary War for Independence was primarily waged to eliminate these abuses and excesses of the "Nobility" and the "Monied Classes" from the life of the Nation, recognizing the Equality of all men.

The Story of the Buck Act
by Richard McDonald (02/20/2002)
When passing new statutes, the Federal government always does everything according to the principles of law. In order for the Federal Government to tax a Citizen of one of the several states, they had to create some sort of contractual nexus. This contractual nexus is the "Social Security Number".

Manipulation of Gold Market Keeps on 'Truckin'
by Bill Murphy (06/17/2000)
No market trades like this for so long. The price of oil is surging, commodity prices are going up, there is record gold demand and producers like Normandy are delivering into hedges, reducing here-to-for supply. The price of gold should be trending higher, not ALWAYS stopping at $290.

The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time.

How George Soros Singlehandedly Created the European Refugee Crisis—and Why
by David Galland and Stephen McBride (07/10/2016)
So why is Soros going to such lengths to flood Europe with hordes of third-world Muslims? We can’t be sure, but it has recently come to light that Soros has taken a large series of “bearish derivative positions” against US stocks. Apparently, he thinks that causing chaos in Europe will spread the contagion to the United States, thus sending US markets spiraling downward. The destruction of Europe through flooding it with millions of unassimilated Muslims is a direct plan to cause economic and social chaos on the Continent.

by Albert Jay Nock (10/01/1935)
Originally published in 1935, this elegant essay on the nature of the state shows the important distinction between state power and social power. "Every assumption of power, whether by gift or seizure," Nock writes, "leaves society with so much less power; there is never, nor can be, any strengthening of State power without a corresponding and roughly equivalent depletion of social power."

Down through the ages there have been many secret societies and conspiratorial movements that had as their goals the absolute overthrow of all existing governments, and the final destruction of all religion. Adam Weishaupt, a professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt (in Bavaria, Germany) established a continuing organizational structure to direct the worldwide attack on religion and monarchy—a structure which would, he hoped, eventually rule the world. The organization Weishaupt founded on May 1, 1776 was called the Order of the Illuminati.
