“There is a word sweeter than mother, home or heaven. That word is liberty.”
~    Matilda Joslyn Gage Epitaph

 What we call “government” is really a for-profit corporation. Look for laws in our state government and you will see that there are merely codes and statutes. This is because corporations cannot write/enact laws. This is true for what we call the central government and our respective states. States are franchised by the central government (corporation) and are therefore corporations as well. Don’t take my word for it, look it up in Dun & Bradstreet.

  Try to get your legislature to un-incorporate and your plea will fall on deaf ears. One reason, other than ignorance, is if the state did that, it would no longer get the revenue-sharing funds from the central corporate government. For many states, that would spell disaster because they have lost control of their resources; or rather, never had them in the first place.

Another reason can be that no one in the legislature has ever truly known self-determination.  

  So what is self-determination? The answer is self-determination is otherwise known as Liberty. Liberty is being able to live one’s life as one sees fit free from any external control as long as he does not violate the common law. The common law is simply stated: don’t harm anyone and don’t steal any of their stuff.

  The common law defines crime and government, or rather the juries, has the task deciding the punishments for those crimes. Sadly, the corporate government sees its role as making the rules that will keep people from committing those common law crimes as well as preventing violation of its codes and statutes, which only apply to those within the corporation. We recognize those rules as prior restraint of rights, which have no place in the government of a free people.

  Why then, does government need to rule over We the People? The truth is that it has no such Constitutional need or mandate. Read the Declaration of Independence and you will clearly see that the sole legitimate purpose of government in this country is to secure the God-given rights belonging to the people, deriving it’s just power with the consent of the people.

  Here is some food for thought: While the Pledge of Allegiance is obviously formatted for children to recite; patriots frequently recite it in that same manner that is at best halting. I believe it would have greater importance and greater relevance if certain changes were adopted. Consider these changes:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the States of America united, and to the Constitutional Republic for which it stands; one Nation under God, indivisible with Liberty and Justice for all.
