Comment: However if the Constitution is not authentic

However if the Constitution is not authentic

then there is no Republic. The present Constitution is, according to some, a corporate Constitution that gives supreme power to the Board and the CEO. i.e. The President and the Cabinet running the Administration of the United States Corporation (USC). It replaced the original Constitution in 1871.

This corporate entity running the States occupies Washington, the District of Columbia and owns about 50% of the land surface of America which it has purchased slowly over the past one hundred years. This is far from the original intent of the founders and their idea of what the Federal government should be and what it should own.

In 1933 FDR introduced the National Industrial Recovery Act. Included in that Act was language from the Trading with the Enemy Act (1917 Amended) that identified the People of America as the Enemy. This then enabled the USC to label the People's gold as "booty" and sequestrate it. This gold was given to the foreign banking interests that own the Federal Reserve System. FDR immediately repriced to $35 an ounce from $20 an ounce giving the bankers a 75% profit at the expense of the American People.

This Act and others during the FDR years has resulted in the President and his Administration governing largely by decree while using the Congress to pass legislation ex post facto to legalise their actions and provide fig leaf cover for them.

This Law is known as the Law of the Sea or Mercantile Law or the Uniform Commercial Code. It is the only way that the present system can be run without protest from the People and why all attempts to challenge the authorities have been unsuccessful.

In my opinion, which is admittedly not an expert opinion, this issue is the elephant in the room because except in very rare circumstances it is never mentioned. Yet it is at least as important as the issue of the Federal Reserve System and goes hand in hand with it. It is the means whereby the oligarchy exercise their power through the courts and regulatory agencies of the Federal government.

It is why any challenge on Constitutional grounds will always fail in the last resort even as the challenge to the Individual Mandate feature of Obamacare has failed. That measure is obviously unConstitutional when considered in the light of the original Constitution for the united States. But it is not in violation of the Constitution of the United States which grants the Presidency and the Administration almost dictatorial powers as has been seen more and more blatantly over the past ten years.

Until this issue is dealt with I can see little prospect of improvement in the governance of the United States. It was my hope that when Ron Paul was elected President that he would actually reveal the existence of the original de jure Constitution, bring it into the open and remove the current Constitution from use entirely consigning it to the round file. This would immediately rid the country of the 14th. 16th. and 17th. Amendments to name but three that have strangled the Republic in the past century and a half.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
