'United States unchained from constitution'

"We may form free constitutions, but our vices will destroy them;
we may enact laws, but they will not protect us." - Lyman Beecher


constitution republic - democracy - corporation

Pathocracy: A system of government where a small pathological minority takes over society from normal people through the use of political ponerology.

Citizens of a self-governing society are free to think and talk openly and critically about issues of governance.

"When a legislature undertakes to proscribe the exercise of a citizen's constitutional rights it acts lawlessly and the citizen can take matters into his own hands and proceed on the basis that such a law is no law at all." – Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas

"Nothing can destroy a government more quickly than its failure to observe its own laws, or worse, its disregard of the charter of its own existence." – Supreme Court Justice Tom C. Clark



"Where is it written in the Constitution, in what section or clause is it contained, that you may take children from their parents and parents from their children, and compel them to fight the battle in any war in which the folly or the wickedness of government may engage it?" – Daniel Webster

"America, the supposedly freest country in the world, cannot admit that democracy (per the Constitution of 1787) has failed. The U.S. Government entity is in no way what Americans first signed up for in 1776. Entities such as corporations are legal constructs. As such, they have no conscience or inherent moral compass. Only individuals can sense right from wrong and employ conscience if they so choose." - Susan Boskey

"It took about 150 years, starting with a Bill of Rights that reserved to the states and the people all powers not explicitly delegated to the federal government, to produce a Supreme Court willing to rule that growing corn to feed to your own hogs is interstate commerce and can therefore be regulated by Congress." – David Friedman

"The Constitution is not hearsay. It is not a bunch of legal myths passed along by word of mouth. It is not a depository for judicial delusions and ideological pipe dreams. It is not a figment of some justice's Marxian imagination. It is a written document – a legally binding contract whose words, spirit and intent are clear." – Linda Bowles

"From the utopian viewpoint, the United States constitution is a singularly hard-bitten and cautious document, for it breathes the spirit of skepticism about human altruism and incorporates a complex system of checks, balances and restrictions, so that everybody is holding the reins on everybody else." – Chad Walsh


government fiat

Well the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more,
'CaUnited Statese when life looks like Easy Street, there is danger at your door.
Think this through with me, let me know your mind,
Wo, oh, what I want to know, is are you kind?

It's a buck dancer's choice my friend; better take my advice.
You know all the rules by now and the fire from the ice.
Will you come with me? Won't you come with me?
Wo, oh, what I want to know, will you come with me?

Goddamn, well I declare, have you seen the like?
Their wall are built of cannonballs, their motto is "Don't tread on me".
Come hear Uncle John'n Band playing to the tide,
Come with me, or go alone, he's come to take his children home.

It's the same story the crow told me; it's the only one he knows.
Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go.
Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait,
Wo, oh, what I want to know, where does the time go?

I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggar's Tomb;
I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune,
anybody's choice, I can hear your voice.
Wo, oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?

Come hear Uncle John's Band by the riverside,
Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide.

Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide,
Come on along, or go alone, he's come to take his children home.
Wo, oh, what I want to know, how does the song go.



constitutional rights

"Self-government is in inverse ratio to numbers. The larger the constituency, the less the value of any particular vote. When he is merely one of millions, the individual elector feels himself to be impotent, a negligible quantity. The candidates he has voted into office are far away, at the top of the pyramid of power. Theoretically they are the servants of the people; but in fact it is the servants who give orders and the people, far off at the base of the great pyramid, who must obey." - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited



"President Calvin Coolidge did say that the business of America is business and the American political class seems to have adopted this view, but the Constitution cannot be used to justify it. The word "business" in the sense of "commercial firm" occurs nowhere in it. Nowhere does the Constitution direct the government to even promote commerce or even defend private property.

The Constitution is clear.

It was established to promote just six goals: (1) form a more perfect union, (2) establish justice, (3) insure domestic tranquility, (4) provide for the common defense, (5) promote the general welfare, and (6) secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.

Of course, the Constitution does not prohibit the government from promoting commerce or defending private property, but what happens when doing so conflicts with one or more of its six purposes?

Shouldn't any law that does that be unconstitutional?

For instance, wouldn't it be difficult the claim that a bankruptcy procedure that protects business and subordinates or dismisses the claims of workers and injured plaintiffs establishes justice?

How can spending trillions of dollars to save financial institutions and other bUnited Statesinesses whose very own actions brought down the global economy be construed as establishing justice or even promoting the general welfare when people are losing their incomes, their pensions, their health care, and even their homes?

These actions clearly conflict with the Constitution's stated goals. Shouldn't they have been declared unconstitutional?

Although the Constitution does provide people with the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances, it does not clearly provide that right to organizations or corporations and it certainly does not provide to anyone the right to petition the government for special advantages. Yet that is what the Congress, even after its members swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, allows special interest groups to do.

Where in the Constitution is there a justification for putting the people last? " - John Kozy


no government only corporations

Amendments to the Constitution

"The people who founded this nation didn't fight a war so that they could have a couple of "citizen representatives" sitting in on meetings of the British East India Company. They carried out a revolution in order to be free of oppression: corporate, governmental, or otherwise; and to replace it with democratic self-government." - Jane Anne Morris

"Only a government which fights for civil liberties and equal rights for its own people can stand for freedom in the rest of the Earth." - Adlai Stevenson

"The American Constitution specifically requires the president to take an oath that he will "faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." George W. BUnited Statesh used the purported threat of terrorism as justification for tearing apart the Constitution." - John Strain

"Many of the world's most ruthless governments started out by promising their people a safer society, all the while chipping away at civil liberties." - Amy Smith

" I have come to the sad conclUnited Statesion that this administration has intentionally obstructed Congress' rightful and constitutional duties." - Dana Rohrabacher 02/08

David Claudio Iglesias, a conservative evangelic, was appointed by George Walker BUnited Statesh to be a justice department attorney. After failing to break the law for George Walker BUnited Statesh he was fired.

The strategy used in the Jose Padilla case was designed to make it possible to sUnited Statespend the Constitutional rights of American citizens by presidential decree.

The writ of habeas corpUnited States was sUnited Statespended even though America was not being invaded nor was a rebellion taking place.

Jose Padilla suffered cruel and unUnited Statesual punishment.

This amounts to three major executive Constitutional violations by a sitting president.


"Habeas corpUnited States is a basic human right and an essential foundation of democracy. Every jailed person on Earth should have charges against them brought in a timely fashion, should have access to counsel and should be able to answer the charges in a fair and open hearing." - John Slevin

Under the 6th Amendment of the Constitution, the accUnited Statesed in a criminal prosecution is entitled "to be confronted with the witnesses against him." This right entitles the accUnited Statesed to be present at the trial, and to hear and cross-examine all witnesses against him. In the past evidence which is not subject to confrontation, such as the testimony of anonymoUnited States sources, who are not subject to cross-examination, may not be used against the accUnited Statesed.

2007 Federal judge rules in AugUnited Statest that testimony from a Israeli intelligence official could be used anonymoUnited Statesly in the federal trial to prove that the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development was only a front to funnel money to Hamas. The judge refUnited Statesed to allow the submission of evidence that indeed the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development had provided relief goods and supplies to Palestinians in general.

2008 Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) says it can not locate a recording of the final interrogation of Jose Padilla that proves his guilt.



plead the fifth


To govern men in accord with nature

It is best to be restrained;

Restraint makes agreement easy to attain,

And easy agreement builds harmonioUnited States relationships;

With sufficient harmony no resistance will arise;

When no resistance arises,

then you possess the heart of the nation,

And when you possess the nation's heart,

your influence will long endure:

Deeply rooted and firmly established.

This is the method of far sight and long life.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. ReligioUnited States intolerance occurs when any group refUnited Stateses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and SUnited Statestainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global indUnited Statestrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitoUnited Statesly over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
