in Amendment to the Constitution
From the Ratification of the Constitution through today
What affect has it had on the concept of government intended by the Framers of the Constitution; on our Liberties and our Lives; and, is it really what we believe it to be?
A study of the history of the Fourteenth Amendment
and its effects

For nearly thirty years, I have attempted to resolve a series of questions that are common to the patriot, or constitutionalist, community. These questions relate to what has happened to the legal system that we were supposed to have adopted, at the time of the formation of this country, based upon both the Common Law of England, as it existed on July 4, 1776, and, a concept of justice that removed us from the arbitrary control of government.
Over the years, I have listened to what others had to say I have watched their actions to see the results. I have read cases that seemed to bear on the subject, and, I have “experimented”, when the opportunity to do so arose.
Over time, as will be explained in the following, the pieces seem to fit a pattern. Rather than trying to wrap the facts around a theory, I developed a theory that fit all of the facts that I could find. However, in finding that some of the facts were, inexplicably, unwilling to fit any theory, I realized that there must be two theories, and it was a matter, then, of determining which theory fit which facts.
The two outstanding theories, neither of which will recognize the other, are:
- We are subject to all laws enacted by the government, unless the Supreme Court overrules them.
- We are subject to no laws enacted by the Congress; instead, we are only subject to the common law.
The two sides (theories) have advocates who faced off with the other side, each insisting that they are right and the other is wrong. While, in fact, both sides are partially right, and, partially wrong.

It does, however, appear that many of the intermediate jurisdictions (other than courts), institutions, and even private corporations, believe that the nexus is there, and, that they are bound by such laws they are told to abide by. They assume that you, too, are bound by such laws. To argue the point with them is fruitless, and, at best, will only create dissension. They, too, have been duped, along with most of the people in this country, into believing that which is not true.
It is for the purpose of exposing that deception that the following has been prepared, for your consideration.

This Essay will provide insight into the beliefs of the Framers of the Constitution; the effect that the Civil War and Lincoln’s assassination; Court decisions and Congressional enactments have had on our relationship with the government.
You may be sorry after you have read it, but you will understand how the subversion of the Constitution has been achieved.
