To answer the question that is the title, we have to know of what the US consists. Is it an ethnic group, a collection of buildings and resources, a land mass with boundaries, or is it the Constitution. Clearly what differentiates the US from other countries is the US Constitution. The Constitution defines us as a people. Without the Constitution we would be a different country. Therefore, to lose the Constitution is to lose the country.
Does the Constitution still exist? Let us examine the document and come to a conclusion.
The Constitution consists of a description of a republic with three independent branches, legislative, executive, and judicial, each with its own powers, and the Bill of Rights incorporated as constitutional amendments. The Bill of Rights describes the civil liberties of citizens that cannot be violated by the government.
Does The United States Still Exist? — Paul Craig Roberts
"I think without any question it's what we called 'the use of hired gunmen.' And this isn't new. In fact, this little manual here, which is called 'The Assassination Manual For Latin America', contains a line which says, that, talking about Latin America, 'If possible, professional criminals will be hired to carry out specific selected jobs.' 'Jobs' in quotes which means murders. Well, if this manual for Latin America, printed within the last few years, and a government manual says that, there's no question what the application of the same techniques was dated back in Kennedy's time. In fact, I know that from my own experience. You know, I was in that business in those days. So, with that knowledge, you begin to realize that hired criminals, the way this book says, can be hired by anybody in power with sufficient money to pay them but more importantly, with sufficient power to operate the cover-up ever after." - Fletcher Prouty
