will make slaves of the minority, or, that power hungry men and women will subvert the system for their own benefit. God is outlawed, and God's laws are totally disregarded. Eventually the majority attempts to install themselves as the god of the nation. Today, in our court rooms in every State, the attorneys "PRAY" to the judge for the orders they seek.

Oligarchy:
A form of government where a select group of individuals have gained control over the actions and activities of the government and have placed themselves, and their cohorts, above the law, by claiming immunity from redress for themselves and their associates. -- Does this sound like our lives today?

The Organic Constitution for the United States of America guarantees that we will live in a State that enjoys the blessings of a Republican form of government. We pledge our allegiance to that Republic. In a Republic, God's Laws are supreme, and each one of us, including each of you, is Sovereign. In a Republic the People are Superior to the government because we created the governments.

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence. -- The Constitution for the United States of America - Article IV: Section. 4

No one can place any limits on our Sovereign power.

There can be no limitation on the power of the people of the United States. By their authority the State Constitutions were made, and by their authority the Constitution of the United States was established; -- U. S. Supreme Court - Hauenstein vs Lynham (100 US 483)

You, our Public Servants, cannot hide behind immunity laws that have been created for your personal benefit.

You cannot avoid the wrath of We the People if you fail to honor every nuance of your Contract with us.

We can, and we will, prosecute anyone who defies the provisions set forth in the Constitution. And we will do it through our People's Courts, the Superior Common Law Courts that, as you will see later, truly do exist in spite of everything anyone else has said.

We the People have already used our unlimited Sovereign power to establish Superior Common Law Courts in many States – and, We the People will continue to do this without any interference from, or discussion with, any of our elected or appointed Public Servants, and, We can do this because our Power is not subject to the Constitutional Laws. We created the Constitutional Laws for the express purpose of controlling our Public Servants.

There can be no limitation on the power of the people of the United States. By their authority the State Constitutions were made, and by their authority the Constitution of the United States was established; -- U. S. Supreme Court - Hauenstein vs Lynham (100 US 483)

It is not just our right to establish Common Law Courts to control the unlawful and unconstitutional actions of the few who would do us harm, but, it is our obligation and duty to do so, in order to protect our Life, our Liberty, and our Pursuit of Happiness, so we can pass the Blessings of Freedom to our Posterity. It is the Declaration of Independence that obligates us to such duty.

It is our intent to use our Superior Common Law Courts to review and examine everything that is done within a State, or by the Federal Union. If we find that any officers have exceeded their authority we will, without hesitation, issue decisions, mandates, and other appropriate orders We the People find necessary to properly monitor and control the various entities that We have created. That is not only our right, it is our obligation, and our duty. Do not be surprised when Common Law Juries sit in your Courts to assure the People the decisions are proper.

In a Republic, the elected and appointed Officers of the State truly are the Public Servants and have no power or authority over the Sovereign Citizens because the Contract created by their Oath of Office is a one-way street and the Sovereign Citizens cannot violate the terms and conditions of the Contract.

Each Officer and employee of the several States and of the Federal government is paid by the Sovereign Citizens of the State and are therefore Officers and Employees of the State Republic – because that is what We the People voted to accept when we voted to enter the union.

Remember, the provisions of the Constitution are Mandatory and Prohibitory. A Public Servant can do nothing that is beyond the SPECIFIC powers granted in the Constitution. If the Constitution does not state in clear and unequivocal terms that something can be done – then it cannot be done. If anyone does not fully understand exactly what powers have been granted, then they need to study, not just read, but study, both the Federal and the State Constitutions because the prescribed Oath of Office you are about to take creates a binding contract to "support, obey, and defend" both of them.

Each Officer needs to fully understand and know that no Section of any Constitution grants any authority to the officers, to invade the Sovereign Realm of any Sovereign Citizen.

We use the term Sovereign Realm for the simple reason that when we gained our independence from England the Sovereign powers of the King of England devolved upon each of us individually. As we express it today, we each have our own Sovereign Space. This Space is our Sovereign Realm and we are the Kings and Queens that rule therein.

When this country achieved its independence the prerogatives of the crown devolved upon the people of the States. And this power still remains with them, except so far as they have delegated a portion of it to the Federal government. -- U. S. Supreme Court - Wheeler v. Smith, 9 How. 33

The Federal Constitution grants no authority to establish any form of Federal Police Force. The words Police, Sheriff, Marshall, or Trooper, do not appear anywhere in the Constitution. Nor, for that matter do any other words that might possibly infer the right, including the word Prison. All police functions properly occur under the provisions of the Common Law because that is the People's Law and holds the sole power of dealing in and with Sovereign Citizens and their property. By retaining the Police Powers to themselves they knew they had created the tool to eliminate the possibility of a police state.

There are no provisions for the regulation of banking, insurance, or any of the myriad of licenses the State and Federal governments require of the Sovereign Citizens.

Our Declaration of Independence makes the following statements:

These statements are the cornerstone of our Individual Sovereignty.

What is Sovereignty?

Strictly speaking, in our republican forms of government, the absolute sovereignty of the nation is in the people of the nation; and the residuary sovereignty of each state, not granted to any of its public functionaries, is in the people of the state. -- Bouvier's Law Dictionary - 6th Edition - 1856

A person who has Sovereignty is a Sovereign.

A sovereign is the chief ruler with supreme power; one possessing sovereignty. -- Bouvier's Law Dictionary - 6th Edition - 1856

The fact that "We the People," the Sovereign Citizens of the several States, hold ALL of the Sovereignty, means that We are superior to our States, and our States are superior to the Federal union. You notice that I did not call it a Federal Government because the Constitution is actually just a Treaty between the States.

It was under the direction of "We the People" of the several States that the Federal Constitution was created, and we did not create a Federal government to rule over our States. We took the steps that made it absolutely certain that our coveted States did not give their closely guarded power or authority to the entity created by the Constitution.

And then, to be even doubly sure that We had built a strong cage for the beast We had created, We established the Bill of Rights to further define and limit the powers granted in the Federal Constitution.

The Declaration of Independence says that We the People have unalienable rights given to us by our God, and the Supreme Court tells us that when we achieved our independence by winning the War for Independence, the powers of the Crown devolved upon the people. The King was Sovereign and his power and authority was given to us, not collectively, but as individuals, just like it says in the Declaration of Independence. The War of Independence made each of us Sovereign, just like the King of England.

Just as we have been told all of our lives, We the People are the supreme power behind this nation.

Our problem is that our lack of understanding and knowledge keeps us from realizing the full potential of the powers that we hold. To us, when we are told we are the supreme power behind this nation, it is just a statement out of context, that We the People do not, and have not, fully comprehended.

What does it mean when we say that We the People are the power behind this nation?

When we won the War of Independence we established the concepts behind the Declaration of Independence. We really did claim our God granted unalienable rights.

Unalienable:
The state of a thing or right which cannot be sold. Things which are not in commerce, as public roads, are in their nature unalienable. Some things are unalienable, in consequence of particular provisions in the law forbidding their sale or transfer, as pensions granted by the government. The natural rights of life and liberty are unalienable. -- Bouvier's Law Dictionary - 6th Edition - 1853

Just because We the People have selected you to work for us does not give you any power over us. Employees cannot tell their employer that they are immune from discipline, that they cannot be reprimanded if they get out of line, or that they can, now that they have certain limited powers, expand those powers beyond what rules and laws have been established by their employer.

No employee expects to be able to dictate to his boss, and no employee can.

Our Life, our Liberty, and our Pursuit of Happiness are unalienable. They are gifts from our Creator. No man has the power, or the authority to invade, or even infringe upon, our unalienable rights of Sovereignty.

It is our Creator that granted Dominion over the earth and all things therein to Adam and Eve, and the rights to that Dominion have been inherited by each of us. That Dominion is our Sovereignty.

A true understanding of the meanings of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is necessary to fully comprehend what we truly have.

Life is the right to the Life that God gave us when he placed our spirit in the body that developed within our earthly mother. Life is a gift from God and is therefore Sacred.

Liberty is not just freedom as we perceive it to be today, but when the Declaration of Independence was written it meant the boundaries of our Sovereignty, and it included all of our property and possessions.

Liberty:
Freedom from restraint. The power of acting as one thinks fit, without any restraint or control, except from the laws of nature. When a man is restrained in his natural liberty by no municipal laws but those which are requisite to prevent his violating the natural law, and to promote the greatest moral and physical welfare of the community, he is legally possessed of the fullest enjoyment of his civil rights of individual liberty. Natural liberty is the right which nature gives to all mankind, of disposing of their persons and property after the manner they judge most consonant to their happiness, on condition of their acting within the limits of the law of nature. Personal liberty is the independence of our actions of all other will than our own. It consists in the power of locomotion, of changing situation, or removing one's person to whatever place one's inclination may direct, without imprisonment or restraint. Political liberty may be defined to be, the security by which, from the constitution, form and nature of the established government, the citizens enjoy their liberty. The political liberty of a citizen is that tranquillity of mind, which is the effect of an opinion that he is in perfect security; and to insure this security, the government must be such that one citizen shall not fear another. In the English law, a liberty is also a territory, with some extraordinary privilege. By liberty or liberties, is understood a part of a town or city, as the Northern Liberties of the city of Philadelphia. -- Bouvier's Law Dictionary - 6th Edition - 1856

Pursuit of Happiness is the ability to pick and choose any lawful business or profession without interference by the government, or by regulations created by government officials, or by the need to acquire any permits or licenses.

Happiness:
The right of men to pursue their "happiness" means the right to pursue any lawful business or vocation, in any manner not inconsistent with the equal rights of others, which may increase their prosperity, or develop their faculties, so as to give to them their highest enjoyment. 111 U. S. 757, 4 Sup. Ct. Rep. 652; 1 Bl. Comm. 41. -- Blacks Law Dictionary - 1st Edition - 1891

The Supreme Court of the United States had this to say about the Declaration of Independence and how it affects us and the lawmakers that try to govern us.

We hold these truths to be self-evident – that is, so plain that their truth is recognized upon their mere statement – that all men are endowed – not by edicts of emperors, or decrees of parliament, or acts of congress, but – by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. – that is, rights which cannot be bartered away, or given away, or taken away, except in punishment of crime – and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and to secure these – not grant them, but secure them – governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. Among these unalienable rights, as proclaimed in that great document, is the right of men to pursue their happiness, by which is meant the right to pursue any lawful business or vocation, in any manner not inconsistent with the equal rights of others, which may increase their prosperity or develop their faculties, so as to give to them their highest enjoyment. The common business and callings of life, the ordinary trades and pursuits, which are innocuous in themselves, and have been followed in all communities from time immemorial, must therefore be free in this country to all alike upon the same conditions. The right to pursue them, without let (To let is to grant a charter, a contract,or a license to a person or group who has made a proposal) or hindrance, except that which is applied to all persons of the same age, sex, and condition, is a distinguishing privilege of citizens of the United States, and an essential element of that freedom which they claim as their birthright. -- U. S. Supreme Court 111 U. S. 746

The "Letting" of licences to General Contractors, Real Estate Agents, Insurance Agents, and others, by any of the Several States is strictly prohibited and cannot be pursued. Nor can any of the several States or the Federal Union involve itself in the Letting of Bank and other financial institution charters. These actions are against the unalienable right to the Pursuit of Happiness as set forth in the Declaration of Independence.

In the same ruling the Supreme Court also said:

All grants of this kind are void at common law, because they destroy the freedom of trade, discourage labor and industry, restrain persons from getting an honest livelihood, and put it in the power of the grantees to enhance the price of commodities. They are void because they interfere with the liberty of the individual to pursue a lawful trade or employment.

Take careful note that the Supreme Court said "Common Law."

Common Law exists.

Be sure that you completely and thoroughly understand and know that all actions concerning the Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness are the sole venue of the Common Law Courts, and that these are the Courts of We the People.

We the People retained all rights to the Common Law, and We made the Common Law Courts Superior to any other court in the land so that We the People could step in at any time and overturn a decision that is not in keeping with the Law that We established in the Federal and State Constitutions.

In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law. -- 7th Article of the Bill of Rights and the 7th Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America

Even the Supreme Court acknowledges the fact that the Constitution does not grant any rights to the Common Laws, which are the very basis of all laws in this Country.

There is no federal general common law. Congress has no power to declare substantive rules of common law applicable in a state whether they be local in their nature or 'general,' be they commercial law or a part of the law of torts. And no clause in the Constitution purports to confer such a power upon the federal courts. -- Erie R.R. Co. v. Tompkins, 304 U.S. 64 (1938)

Even though the Attorneys (who cannot practice in Common Law Courts), and the bureaucrats (who stand to lose the empires they are building), and the judges (because they can no longer legislate from their bench), will all say that Common Law Courts do not exist, the above cites from the U. S. Supreme Court and from the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution itself, all state very clearly that the Common Law Courts are the Superior Courts of the Land.

One final point.

For those of you who think that just because some of the people get together and vote to do something that their vote makes it lawful -- consider the following:.

Even if a whole bunch of Sovereign Citizens get together to try and enable a government to do something that is above and beyond their individual power -- it cannot happen.

If I go into your home and take your child I am guilty of kidnapping. If I get 100 others to go with me we are all guilty of kidnapping. If I could talk 10,000 people into going with me we are all still guilty of kidnapping. The reason is, nobody has the right to remove any child, or anything else from the home of another person.

I don't have the power to take someone elses child, and I also know that you don't have that power either.

So what makes you think that just because a bunch of us get together and decide to do it jointly we suddenly have the power, or we can give that power to someone else?

Granting powers can be compared to giving money. If I want to give someone a dollar and don't have it. I can't give it. If I go find a million people who also don't have a dollar -- we still can't give it.

Unless we have something -- we cannot give it away. We do not have the power to invade another person's home, property, family, or anything else that person owns, unless that person has done something directly to harm us.

Consider this -- If I drive 200 miles and hour down the freeway and don't bother anyone -- under Common Law I have not harmed anyone and so I have not broken a law.

Only when you do something that invades, or infringes upon the sovereign rights of another person does that person have the right of redress against you.

We cannot violate the Sovereign Space of another person. And your child is an integral part of your Sovereign Space. I can conceive of no situation where there is anything that I could do to you that would grant you the right to take my child away.

If I beat my child - then my child has the right of redress against me, and the police have the rights and the power to arrest me for assault and battery. But no one has the right to compound the abuse of a child by tearing them away from their loving family, their toys, their bed, their familiar surroundings and give them to another.

By the same token, we cannot go into your home and remove any of your property because it too is an integral part of your Sovereign Space. We cannot summarily take your home because that is your castle and the centerpiece of your Sovereign Space. That is why the several Constitutions require that the property be paid for – even in the case of eminent domain.

The great French jurist Frederic Bastiat, who is freely quoted in law circles, states:

Thus, since an individual cannot lawfully use force against the person, liberty, or property of another individual, then the common force -- for the same reason -- cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, liberty, or property of individuals or groups. -- Frederic Bastiat - The Law

Each Sovereign Citizen holds total and supreme power in his, or her, Space. No Sovereign Citizen has the right, the power, or the authority to invade, or even infringe upon the Sovereign Space of another person.

The law is the organization of the natural right of lawful defense. It is the substitution of a common force for individual forces. And this common force is to do only what the individual forces have a natural and lawful right to do" to protect persons, liberties, and properties; to maintain the right of each, and to cause justice to reign over us all. -- Frederic Bastiat - The Law

Even if a majority of the Sovereign Citizens banded together to grant a power that no one of them held, they cannot grant that power simply because – they do not have that power to grant.

Whenever a government uses its force to invade, infringe upon, or steal from one person in order to give to another it is called PLUNDER.

We the People granted our State and Federal governments the right to perform certain very specific and very restricted activities that are normally reserved to us, the Sovereigns. This did not, nor could it, make the State Sovereign. Fictitious entities have no ability to claim Sovereignty as all Sovereignty resides in the Sovereign Citizens. In fact, the very power of the Crown head of England devolved onto the head of each Sovereign Citizen.

Even though We the People granted specific powers to the State and to the Federal governments we did not grant them sole use of those powers. This fact is attested to by the fact that We the People retained the right to continue to exercise those same powers by modifying or abolishing the entities that we had created and instituting new entities that we felt would most likely effect our Safety and Happiness.

We the People have already used our unlimited Sovereign power to establish Superior Common Law Courts in many States, including the State of Utah – and, We the People will continue to do this without any interference from, or discussion with, any of our elected or appointed Public Servants, and, We can do this because our Power has no limit and is not subject to the Constitutional Laws. We created the Constitutional Laws for the express purpose of controlling our Public Servants.

We fully understand that initially the orders of the Superior Common Law Courts may be ridiculed, ignored and attempts may even be made to bring armed force against those who are involved. Eventually enough Sovereign Citizens will realize what is happening to force the corrupt officers and appointees to heed the orders of the Superior Common Law Courts. We are very confident of this because both the Federal government and the governments of the several States have run roughshod over the People for many years, and once the abused and maligned Citizens discover there is a remedy for their problems we will have literally thousands of Sovereign Citizens before our Superior Common Law Courts seeking redress against the government and the government officials.

We the People formed a republican form of government in each state and mandated that the Federal government was responsible for the continuance of that form of government. The officers of the Federal government have miserably failed in their adherence to our mandate. We have waited for many years for the various officers to correct the problems and they have just gotten worse.

We are now faced with the prospect of an Oligarchy where the attorneys and judges have unlawfully seized the powers of the government. In direct defiance to the separation of powers established in the Constitution, many judges are making laws from the bench. The Supreme Court of the United States has exceeded its limited powers of dealing only with appeals and has taken to the task of creating new and innovative laws that are abhorrent to us, the Sovereign Citizens. Most sessions of our State and Federal Legislatures are ruled and controlled by Attorneys. Attorneys have created a system of laws that require their presence in everything We the People do.

We do not need to be members of their private club – the Bar – in order to deal in and with their corrupt court system. We do not need to be members of their private club to hold any office in any State, or in the Federal government. The Federal Constitution makes no such provisions, and those provisions in the State Constitutions are a direct affront to our Individual Sovereignty. The provisions are unconstitutional, invalid, and unenforceable. They fly in the face of all reason. Any Sovereign, be he, or she, a ditch digger, a farmer, a business man, or other profession has as much right to a seat on the Supreme Court of any State, or the United States, as any other Sovereign – WE ARE ALL EQUAL and we said so in the Declaration of Independence.

In order to properly defend ourselves from the corrupt officials we have elected, or appointed, We must first understand what the Constitution for the united States of America and the Constitutions for the States really are, why they were written, and most important, how they really affects us.

A Constitution is the binding laws set forth by the Citizens of a nation to secure their God given unalienable rights. These binding laws are set forth in the form of mandates from the Sovereigns holding supreme power to command that the people who will staff the offices being created do and perform exactly as they have been mandated to do.

There are another set of binding laws in the Constitution that are prohibitions set forth to prohibit the people who will staff the offices being created from doing or performing any act or action not specifically mandated by the Sovereigns holding supreme power.

Since a Constitution defines the laws to control the actions of the people who will staff the offices being created, it may be considered to be the cage that the Sovereign People have built to protect themselves from the monster they are creating.
