The USA should never have been a Democracy in the first place...It should have remained the way it was created...A Republic form of government under
the Constitution (even though there are Democratic processes within, they are under strict limitations
). Democracy took a mortal blow on the
day when the Federal Reserve Act was signed into existence...That's when the USA became a Corporate Fascism.

How Corporate Elitism And Greed Are Destroying Democracy
God knows I can agree with a title like that, I just wish the article was more expansive.
This is why Democracies always
fail...Once Government Officers realize that they can vote for public monies to their personal benefit, it's
all downhill from there.

Actually, the movie got that quote from Thomas Jefferson

Here's another Thomas Jefferson quote

As it pertains to rule by the elite in America, the People have been impoverished by the elite withholding or outright falsification of information,
sharing the truth only amongst themselves. This is why I had finished up my OP in Future
with the concept that we're fighting a War FOR Information. The real trick is to freely share the information
when you have
it...This is what many of the "alternative news" sites do & even WTP organization
focuses mostly on
People than anything else.

IMO, Ron Paul
(& Bob Schultz from WTP Foundation
) looks to be the
modern-day Thomas Jefferson...Even though Dr. Paul has officially dropped out of the Presidential race, he's still speaking up & educating the People
to move off their "couch-potato @$$es" & accomplish something.

If someone can come up with a decent plan, I'm on board.
Well, there are a few threads here at ATS (which include links to further research) to help with the first steps & I'll list them below. The first
steps involve research
that will give you the details on how to free yourself
from the corporate-system ownership that we've been
locked into since birth. The more People that can do this, the weaker (financially) the commercial government & the illegitimate banking system
becomes...Making it easier for the People to restore Constitutional Government. The real trick is that Government has grown too big & has imposed more
restrictions on the People in favor of Big Corps (especially the Banks). This is because too many Government Officers are violating the
(Article 1, Section 6, Clause 2: Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8) in favor of the
"emoluments" they get from their personal corporate/financial interests.
"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."--Thomas Jefferson
"I own that I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive."--Thomas Jefferson
"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength,
and bid defiance to the laws of our country."--Thomas Jefferson
"I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by
posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale."--Thomas Jefferson
1: Regain Title of Ownership on your body. You need to make corrections on your Birth Certificate & get it changed into a Certificate of Live Birth,
having the names of your parents & yourself entered as a combination of upper & lower case letters, the same way you would write your name by
hand--ie: John Doe instead of JOHN DOE. You must also be sure that the new changes get officially Recorded
instead of officially
: This can be done with Filing Statements, as per UCC-1.
2: You may "opt-out" of your federal citizenship: Don't worry, you'll still retain your State Citizenship, through your Certificate of Live Birth.
Yes, these are two entirely different types of citizenship: One is your State Citizenship (which State you were born in or have been in residence for
a least one year) & the other is the Federal citizenship through your Social Security Card (which makes you a 14th Amendment citizen, different from
your "native-born" citizenship: The 14th Amendment was intended to grant citizenship to People who did not have it, such as the newly-freed slaves,
at the time the 14th Amendment was enacted). You still retain any State-funded benefits for which you may be entitled through your State Citizenship,
regardless of Federal citizen status.
The Feds are not
a government by Law--They are a government by commercial interests, upholding commercial law
(Statutory law) instead of
Constitutional/Common Law. In short, you can become exempt to the individual (non-profit) corporate taxation on your labor, but you'll also lose all
of the "federal benefits" such as Social Security: It may be possible, once you've established your Exemption Status, to try getting reimbursement
for all of those back-taxes you've already paid during your working career. It's much easier to establish your own "retirement funds"(perhaps
through the use of self-perpetuating Trust Funds) more efficiently without having to keep forking over your "taxes" all the time.
This takes making up affidavits (It's possible to do this with just one affidavit, but it'll be a very long
one) & submitting them to the
official Records Office. The affidavit(s), once on record, officially "separate" your flesh-n-blood self from the government-created fictional
that they use to identify you...And at the same time you reclaim the title over that fictional entity under you
The key to your personal sovereignty lies in the fact that you must make them acknowledge you
as being different than the fictional identity
that the government had created to represent you under corporate law. In short, know yourself
& force them to either acknowledge you or let you
go: They are loathe to acknowledge you
as different from the fictional ID, because for them to do so is to make them admit
have no jurisdiction over you
as a flesh-n-blood human being.
The key to this knowledge is that the courts uphold commercial law
over Real Law
...Corporate Law (Statutes) can only claim jurisdiction
on corporate entities, but have no jurisdiction
over Real Law (Constitutional Law or Common Law). Extreme caution is advised--They make
their careers by tricking people
into entering into Contract Obligation with them...The idea is to refuse to enter into any contractual
at all. Never enter into a place where they do
have jurisdiction (at the Plaintiff/Defendant tables in front of the Judge's
Bench or even step past the separator-railing between the visitors area & the courtroom proper, inside a Federal Building or any other Federal Zone,
etc)...Never do anything they demand (without repeating that they have to acknowledge you
before you can recognize their jurisdiction), never
answer any questions (repeating the same things as you would for refusing their demands). The first time you screw up & enter into any kind of
, they've nailed you. They have no jurisdiction over you until you indicate any
acceptance of agreement whatsoever.
