I am a government employee, and would never work for the government - nor would anyone else - if I thought that the government could be sued and my personal money be taken away because of it. I am protected by the legal entity of the corporation.
"Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members, and a Majority of each shall constitute a Quorum to do Business; but a smaller number may adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized to compel the Attendance of absent Members, in such Manner, and under such Penalties as each House may provide."
And that is exactly why what we have today is allowed to continue. Blisfully unaware we have become, and complacent to boot.
First, before we continue into this, I want to know exactly how many people showed up and what percent they were of the remaining states.
Any action a government employee takes on his or her own, or that represents gross misconduct, makes them personally liable.
However, I can not be sued because you don't like something my department did - if I could - then there would be no one in government.
The legal entity of a corporation is required if you want any level of government to exist.
...combined with the opinion of a constitutional lawyer that any president can summon Congress without a quorum in any sense...
As you have provided nothing to make me believe that there is not enough accountability, all I have to say is that to me its quite clear that the government is more than accountable enough with its corporation, and without one you would have no government of any size because no one in their right mind would work for it.
I am far from an expert on the constitution and the civil war, that is why I emailed an expert on the war. This is a guy who has spent his whole life studying and writing books on the subject.
He says the war is over.
That in fact war was never declared. The fact that an expert on the civil war agrees with me is enough for me to believe that the so called war has indeed ended.
Okay, let me rephrase that. The war isnt over because there never was a war. The rebellion is over. It was never a war. It was a rebellion or uprising.

I just email another person who's fields of Expertise are: Constitutional law, First Amendment, Supreme Court and the Constitution, privacy law, press and the Constitution. I asked his opinion on the matter. If he gets back to me I will post. I have asked for his insight on your other post.
"United States of America’s Constitution, as prescribed by the nation’s founders, no longer has direct authority, and that the nation operates under a declared state of martial law. While it is true that the Constitution is referenced, and still alive in spirit to some extent, it is also true that it no longer binds effective governance in legitimacy."
I also have asked him about the supreme courts authority during martial law. Since you claim they had no authority to overrule Lincolns Martial law. Almost tempted to give him a link to your article but I want to get him to take me seriously. I doubt he will if I link it to the ATS website. However this time after he answers I will email him the link. Maybe we will get lucky and he will actually review your arguments.
