The U.S. Constitution established a Republic rooted in Biblical law...
That each individual is endowed by his Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are the rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness...
...Any legalization of the termination of innocent life of the born or unborn is a direct violation of our unalienable right to life...
...We affirm the God-given legal personhood of all unborn human beings, without exception. As to matters of rape and incest, it is unconscionable to take the life of an innocent child for the crimes of his father.
... In addition, we oppose the funding and legalization of bio-research involving human embryonic or pre-embryonic cells...
... Our party leaders and public officials must display exemplary qualities of honesty, integrity, reliability, moral uprightness, fidelity, prudence, temperance, justice, fortitude, self-restraint, courage, kindness, and compassion...
... If we are to see a return to the states those powers, programs, and sources of revenue that the federal government has unconstitutionally taken away, then it is also vital that we repeal the Seventeenth Amendment and return to state legislatures the function of electing the U.S. Senate...
... Because the federal government has absolutely no jurisdiction concerning the education of our children, the United States Department of Education should be abolished; all federal legislation related to education should be repealed. No federal laws subsidizing or regulating the education of children should be enacted. Under no circumstances should the federal government be involved in national teacher certification, educational curricula, textbook selection, learning standards, comprehensive sex education, psychological and psychiatric research testing programs, and personnel...
... So that parents need not defy the law by refusing to send their children to schools of which they disapprove, compulsory attendance laws should be repealed....
... The Voting Rights Act should be repealed. The Federal Election Campaign Act, including its 1974 amendments, and the Federal Election Commission should be abolished....
Are you a U.S. citizen or a Citizen of the U.S.A.
U.S.A., or The Union - America in the broad, abstract, national sense without distinguishing
between federal and State territory.
“Union States” - The 50 sovereign Union States. Each State is its own separate nation, with its
own exclusive jurisdiction and laws over its own Citizens and alien residents.
"United States" – A federal statute term which means the Constitutionally-created federal nation whose territory is limited to the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands,
Guam, U.S. military bases and all other federal enclaves, which delineates the geographical
border of federal jurisdiction. Can also mean the federal government.
"State" - A federal statute term which means, when used in conjunction with "United States,"
the District of Columbia and its territories (U.S. territories). (unless specified to also encompass the 50 Union States.) See below;
TITLE 49 - TRANSPORTATION
SUBTITLE VI - MOTOR VEHICLE AND DRIVER PROGRAMS
PART A - GENERAL
CHAPTER 303 - NATIONAL DRIVER REGISTER
(7) “State” means a State of the United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands,
Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, and
any other territory or possession of the United States.
(Notice it does not state the 50 Union States nor any commonwealth)
TITLE 49 - TRANSPORTATION
SUBTITLE VI - MOTOR VEHICLE AND DRIVER PROGRAMS
PART B - COMMERCIAL
CHAPTER 313 - COMMERCIAL MOTOR VEHICLE OPERATORS
(13) “State” means a State of the United States and the District of Columbia.
(14) “United States” means the States of the United States and the District of Columbia.
(Notice above in 13 and 14, it does not state the 50 Union States.)
“American Citizen” – A person born within the U.S.A. (within a State or federal territory). Also
correctly described as an ; “U.S.A. National" or "Citizen of the Union". Capital "C" is imperative.
American Citizens are either State Citizens or "U.S. citizens."
“State Citizen” -- An American Citizen who resides the statutory length (usually 30 days)
within a State and is thereby subject to that State's jurisdiction, rights and privileges (i.e., voting).
State Citizens cannot simultaneously be "U.S. citizens." State Citizens are not subject to
General regulatory federal jurisdiction (i.e., income taxes).
"U.S. citizen" --An American Citizen who, by residing in some federal territory, is subject to
federal jurisdiction. "U.S." (federal) citizens cannot simultaneously be State Citizens and are
generally not subject to State jurisdiction, nor do they pay no State income tax.
"person residing in..." or "resident of..." -- That 1956 federal report on jurisdiction said that a
"person" or "resident" is not the same as a "citizen" (State or "U.S."). This was affirmed in Logan v. U.S., 12S. Ct. 617 and also in Powe v. U.S., 109F. 2d.147. This non-U.S.A. National
(foreign alien) resides within either a State or the federal nation, and thus is subject to its jurisdiction. Resident aliens of a State don't pay federal income tax. "U.S." resident aliens don't pay Union State income tax.
(NOTE: There are two questions I have for my fellow researchers: (1) What is the meaning
and significance of a "U.S. national" as referred to in Form 1040NR and in the U.S. Passport application?, and (2) Does a State Citizen who has taken up official residence abroad lose his State Citizenship because he is no longer a resident of his State? (My tentative feeling is "yes.") For example, can the "United States" claim a Florida Citizen retiree living in Mexico as a "United
States citizen" because he no longer resides in Florida? These two issues have puzzled me, and I
didn't have time to fully research them while finishing this book. Any help on these, or other,
matters would be most appreciated.

Whoa! Jefferson was emphatically and positively NOT a Christian. He was a Deist. He may have given it a certain amount of unavoidable lip service to Christianity when he was President, but you ought to read some of his latter writings about the religion. He was one of Christianity's most scathing critics of his time.

What is this? Our time is at an end and you speak of politics? Have you not realize there is more to your existence than your foolish opinions? Abandon those thoughts for now and place the future in higher value.
The true constitutionalist recognizes the importance of seperating religion and states in order to protect the freedom of religion.
The true constitutionalist opposes any religious laws,
The true constitutionalist has the right to bare arms but at the same time recognizes that they are of no pity or support from the constitution to abuse that right.
I do not believe those who contend that the Constitution was based, founded on or had anything to do with Biblical Law...
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.... And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion."
- George Washington
"Those rights, then, which God and nature have established, and are therefore called natural rights, such as are life and liberty, need not the aid of human laws to be more effectually invested in every man than they are; neither do they receive any additional strength when declared by the municipal [or state] laws to be inviolable. On the contrary, no human legislation has power to abridge or destroy them, unless the owner [of the right] shall himself commit some act that amounts to a forfeiture." - William Blackstone
"The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the Holy Scriptures. These precepts, when revealed, are found by comparison to be really a part of the original law of nature, as they tend in all their consequences to man's felicity." - William Blackstone
