In the last newsletter, we discussed the true meaning of the word “Patriot” and how our natural rights come from God, not government. If people believe that government grants their rights then they must understand that government, can then, take them away. If you don’t fully understand natural law and where your rights come from then they will, eventually be taken from you. That is why it is vital to have this basic fundamental understanding.

In the days of the founding of the U.S., there was a principle that was understood by the people. It is called “Federalism” but, unfortunately, most people haven’t a clue what it means.

It goes like this. At the top of any authoritative system, is God…then the power lies in the hands of the sovereign individual…then the local government, state, and at the bottom was the federal government which was extremely limited!!

“Federalism” was also protected by another principle of the founding era and it is known as the principle of “Allegiance and Protection.”

Under “allegiance and protection” everyone has a responsibility to protect “the sovereign.” The purpose of the militia is to protect the sovereign. It is their DUTY to do so! The United States is NOT a sovereign nation. People say this is crazy but it is the states (…and the people) that are sovereign, not the nation. This is where the ‘duty’ of the states comes in.

People misunderstand all of this and, wrongly, think that the answer is state nullification. This is because many lies have been spread from an organization referring to themselves as the “Tenth Amendment Center.” They are not teaching people according to the truth of the Constitution. Their model laws say that the states and the U.S. have a contract agreement. The “Supremacy Clause” of the Constitution (Article 6, clause 2) makes it crystal clear because it automatically nullifies any piece of legislation that is contrary to anything else in the Constitution. Also, case law says that if it’s not passed “in pursuance” with the Constitution, it is not a law. This is, exactly, why most of the modernist “executive orders” are completely illegal…yet the people do nothing about it.

The “Supremacy Clause” of the U.S. Constitution (i.e., Article VI, clause 2) is an automatic nullification clause against unconstitutional federal “enactments” because there is no such thing as an unconstitutional federal “law.”

The problem with “nullification” is that there is no authority for states to nullify federal law – one sovereign does not have ability to nullify another sovereign.  Nowhere in the Constitution does it give any authority to the states to nullify. America is the first and only country where the people were created as sovereign. The term “sovereign” means “subject to the allegiance“…the only one that could severe that relationship with the government is the sovereign, not the other way around. The worst crime is TREASON but they still can’t take away our allegiance and protection. We owe each other the duties of allegiance and protection because we are, all, sovereign.

WE ARE THE SOVEREIGN – the people!

The federal government can’t make states pass legislation and they can’t force agents (sheriffs) to enforce laws…it violates federalism.

Constitutional nullification is far more powerful than state nullification!!! ***

 “[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in Religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. “– Dr. Benjamin Rush, On the Mode of Education Proper in a Republic

Take the “Patriot’s Corner” Challenge

Who refused to attend the Constitutional Convention because he said, “I smell a rat” and why?? What do you think?
