Because Our Government Is Hooked Up Backward!
Our Constitutional government was not created a Democracy. It was created a Representative Republic! We, the sovereign citizen are to have no direct contact with the federal government. That's the purpose for which a representative is elected.
Per the constitution, the sovereign citizen is free from direct taxation, at the federal level. The federal government is to be funded thusly:
The federal representatives compose a definitive budget,
The states are then responsible for their portion, as determined by the annual census. This is the purpose of said census.
The state representatives then determine the means by which the money is raised.
The income tax at the federal level is totally unlawful, as is the direct taxation of the sovereign citizen.
Sixteenth American Jurisprudence, Second Edition, Section 177
The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law, constitutes the law of the land.
Contrarily: The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute, to be valid, must be in agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution, and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail.
This is succinctly stated as follows: the general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose.
Since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it, an unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statue not been enacted.
Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it.
A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statue runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, it is superseded thereby.
No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law, and no courts are bound to enforcement it." (emphasis added)
Perhaps the following history review, will help explain the current crisis.
The United States was governed under martial law for the duration of the Civil War; thus suspending the Constitution and the right of Habeas Corpus.
The war, according to the words of Lincoln, was not to for the purpose of freeing the slaves, but to preserve the union. The advocates of the principle of states rights lost the war, the advocates of the power of central government won!
When the Constitution was restored; the Federal Government had assumed the inherent right of conquest; sovereignty had shifted from citizenry, to government; the United States thus transitioned from: sovereign citizenry to sovereign /corporate nation.
Due to this one hundred eighty degree change of application, Members of government now govern under the shield of corporate immunity. Though their oath is too the constitution, they govern according to corporate policy.
Beginning with the close of the Civil War, the constitution has either been adhered to, ignored, or "re-interpreted," as corporate policy dictates. It has thus became what the controlling politicians, and the courts of the time, declare it to be.
The only way any member of government, if acting in the name of government, may be held responsible for their actions, is if the judiciary allows the sovereign/corporate shield to be pierced. This is true whether county law clerk, city cop, state governor, or president of the United States.
Remember George Bush's contention that nothing is illegal, when perpetrated as an official act of the Presidency. As head of the sovereign government, a presidential order enjoys the status of sovereign decree. Remember the right of habeas corpus, was suspended by "Prince" George, by means of sovereign decree, i.e. (presidential order)
A Presidential order of pardon, may override due process of the judiciary, an equal branch of government, by force of sovereign decree.
By presidential order anything he desires hidden, is accomplished by merely invoking his "sovereign right" to secrecy, or its denial to the individual citizen.
With a signing order, he picks and chooses the legislation he will follow, thus negating the power of congress, another supposedly equal branch of government.
