"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
"Republic" is the proper description of our government, not "democracy." A republic and a democracy are identical in every aspect except one. In a republic the sovereignty is in each individual person. In a democracy the sovereignty is in the group.
Republic: That form of government in which the powers of sovereignty are vested in the people and are exercised by the people, either directly, or through representatives chosen by the people, to whom those powers are specially delegated. [NOTE: The word "people" may be either plural or singular. In a republic the group only has advisory powers; the sovereign individual is free to reject the majority group-think.
Democracy: That form of government in which the sovereign power resides in and is exercised by the whole body of free citizens directly or indirectly through a system of representation, as distinguished from a monarchy, aristocracy, or oligarchy. [NOTE: In a pure democracy, 51% beats 49%. In other words, the minority has no rights. The minority only has those privileges granted by the dictatorship of the majority.]
The distinction between our Republic and a democracy is not an idle one. It has great legal significance. The Constitution guarantees to every state a Republican form of government (Art. 4, Sec. 4). No state may join the United States unless it is a Republic. Our Republic is one dedicated to "liberty and justice for all." Minority individual rights are the priority. The people have natural rights instead of civil rights. The people are protected by the Bill of Rights from the majority. In a pure democracy 51 beats 49[%]. In a democracy there is no such thing as a significant minority: there are no minority rights except civil rights (privileges) granted by a condescending majority. Only five of the U.S. Constitution's first ten amendments apply to Citizens of the United States. Simply stated, a democracy is a dictatorship of the majority.
A Republic, by definition, has two principle elements;
First, it is controlled by Law, therefore it does not control Law.
Second, it recognizes the private independent sovereign nature of each person (man or woman) of competent age and capacity, therefore a Republic must be representative in its nature.
A Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable, or at least that it can only be changed by a higher source than government. In a Republic the concept of "collective sovereignty” cannot exist, except with recognition that the State or nation, as a body of sovereigns, can speak through one elected voice;though that one voice can never lawfully interfere with the private rights of the individual sovereigns.
"A Constitutional Republic” is a government created and controlled, at least, by the Law of a Constitution. The Constitution of the United States of America was, in Law, foundationally based on the Bible, the Magna Carta, and The Declaration of Independence. Those documents recognize man’s sovereignty, the divine nature of man’s creation and man’s divine right to Life, Liberty, Property, and the pursuit of happiness.

Middle English governen, from Old French governer, from Latin gubernre, from Greek kubernn
"The word government is derived from the Latin word gubernare, which means to guide or "pilot a ship.”
"The verb "to govern" has its roots in the Latin "gubernare" which means to steer or guide.”
"The French word was _gouverner_, and its oldest form was the Latin _gubernare_, a word which the Romans borrowed from the Greek, and meant originally "to steer the ship.”
"Inasmuch as every government is an artificial person, an abstraction, and a creature of the mind only, a government can interface only with other artificial persons. The imaginary, having neither actuality nor substance, is foreclosed from creating and attaining parity with the tangible. The legal manifestation of this is that no government, as well as any law, agency, aspect, court, etc. can concern itself with anything other than corporate, artificial persons and the contracts between them."
Those who want to trap animals lay out "bait" and rig the door of the trap to slam shut when the animal grabs the bait. People can be trapped just as easily as animals and it happens all the time. For the Federal government, this "bait" is called "benefits". You "grab" or consume this bait by filling out an "application" such as a Social Security Form SS-5, or IRS Forms. Beyond the point of taking the bait, you become a public officer in the government corporation. Hence the "cage", from a legal perspective, is a corporation and the animals in the cage is a public officer. Why? Because the government' can't lawfully pay public funds to private people. Therefore, you must be assimilated into the government corporation as a public officer and a public "person" in order to lawfully receive payment or "benefit" and in effect become one of them.
"To lay, with one hand, the power of the government on the property of the citizen, and with the other to bestow it upon favored individuals to aid private enterprises and build up private fortunes, is none the less a robbery because it is does under the forms of law and is called taxation. This is not legislation. It is a decree under legislative forms. Nor is taxation. 'A tax', says Webster's Dictionary, 'is a rate or sum of money assessed on the person or property of a citizen by government for the use of the nation or State'. 'Taxes are burden or charges imposed by the Legislature upon persons or property to raise money for public purposes.' Cooly, Const. Lim. 479. Coulter, J., In Northern Liberties v. St. John's Church, 13 Pa.St., 104, says very forcibly 'I think the common mind has everywhere taken in the understanding that taxes are a public imposition, levied by authority of the government for purposes of carrying on the government in all its machinery and operations - that they are imposed for a public purpose." [Loan Association v. Topeka, 20 Wall. 655 (1874)]
Like every type of animal trap, the cage or trape is chained to the ground and destroys the mobility, liberty, sovereignty, and freedom of those who eat or who are even eligible to eat the "bait". That cage, in legal contemplation, is portable and can be moved wherever the owner deems proper for their malicious purposes. By examining 26 USC 7701(a)(9), and 7408(d), we see that both the cage and the headquarters of Babylon the Great Harlot, federal corporation called the United States is the District of Columbia, or what Mark Twain calls, "The District of Criminals". Therefore you are chained to the District of Columbia because you are representing an office in the District of Columbia. This:
1. Attaches to you, at the point you consent by filling out the application for the benefit, even if you were threatened and intimidated to fill out the form and thereby render it void, the government will look the other way by deliberately omitting to prosecute the source of the duress because doing so would stop the legal plunder.
2. Consists of the franchise contract that obligates you, the trapped animal, into economic and political servitude to the whims of bureaucrats in the government. This is your half of the "consideration" that forms the contract.
3. Attached you to a legal "status" such as that of a statutory "taxpayer" (26 U.S.C 7701(a)(14), "citizen" (8 U.S.C 1401), "Benefit recipient" or "federal personnel" (See U.S.C 522a(a)(12)) Only those who have this "status" can be the object of enforcement of the franchise contract. This status can ONLY be procured through YOUR CONSENT.
Those who regularly read the bible ought to be familar with these concepts. The very first city described in the Bible, which was Babylon, was established by a man named Nimrod who was described as a "mighty hunter". What he hunted were MEN, and he did so by establishing cities full of "benefits" to lure them into the city from out of the agrarian primitive dwellings. To wit:
"Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a might one on earth. He was a mighty hunger before the LORD; therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod the might hunter before the Lord And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erich, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Sinar. From that land he went to Asyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah and Resent between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city). [Gen. 10:18-12]
The Bible also speaks directly, through the prophet Jeremiah, about those "who devise evil by law" as a way to trap and enslave men. The "Snares" they are referring to, at least in the area of government and the legal field, are franchises. The phrase "fearing the Lord" is defined in Proverbs 8:13 as hating, and by implication punishing and preventing violation of God's laws such as those described here:
"Let us now fear the Lord our God, Who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season. He reserves for us the appointed weeks of the harvest. You iniquities have turned these things away. [filling out government forms for "benefits"] And your sins have withheld good from you. 'For among My people are found wicked men [the District of Columbia, who are foreigners posing as protectors]; They lie in wait as one who sets snares; They set a trap; They catch men. As a cage is full of birds, So their houses are full of deceit. [ in their usurious "codes" that are not law, but contracts] Therefore they have become great and grown rich [by stealing and spending TRILLIONS of dollars form those who were unjustly compelled to participate in government franchises]. They have grown fat, they are sleek; Yes, they surpass the deeds of the wicked; They do not plead the cause, The cause of the fatherless [or the "nontaxpayer"] yet they prosper and the right of the needy they do not defend. Shall I not punish them for these things? says the LORD, ' Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this? An astonishing and horrible thing Has been committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests [judges, who preside over a civil religion of socialism that worships the 'state'] rule by their own power; And my people love to have it so, But what will you do in th end?" [Jeremiah 5:24-31]
"Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant or mutual agreement with the inhabitants of the land to which you go, lest it become a snare in the midst of you." [Exodus 34:12]
Human rights are those we possess by virtue of being human. They are natural rights, i.e., rights we possess by nature, not by law (although they may be, and should be, protected by law). They are not rights granted to us by any government, and so they cannot be taken away by any government, regardless of what laws it may pass and what degree of violence it may employ to enforce its laws. (However, governments can, and should, legislate to protect human rights.) These rights include (in the words of Thomas Jefferson) the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (in whatever form we think best).
These rights and others are possessed by all who acknowledge that other persons have the same rights. We do not have a right to harm or endanger others — for that would be a denial of their rights — except where others attempt to deprive us of these rights (we have the right to defend our rights against encroachment). The only kind of law which best represents these ideals is Common Law, the law of the land.
Sadly, the government no longer cares about human rights. The rulers of the world today have very sinister plans and it involves ABSOLUTE control of the people. If we have rights, they don't have control. Of course they can not come out and take all of the people's rights away in one swoop. Instead they did so using incrementalism, a policy of making changes, especially social changes, by degrees. Gradualism.
Ultra vires is a Latin term meaning "beyond powers". The term is usually used to refer to acts taken by a corporation or officers of a corporation that are taken outside of the powers or authority granted to them by law or under the corporate charter. Some states have enacted laws to prevent the use of the defense of ultra vires action to unfairly avoid obligations under otherwise valid contracts.
The concept of acting "under color of law" means acts are done while a person acts or purports to act in the performance of official duties under any state, county, or municipal law, ordinance, or regulation. This is a similar concept that refers to the apparently authorized status of the action, as distinguished from the unauthorized status of their actions, which ultra vires refers to.
