The word “sovereignty” means “kingship.”
Founding father Gouverneur Morris (1752-1816), a signer of the Constitution, said that the magistrate is not the king; the people are the king.
Chief Justice John Jay (1745-1829) said that the people are the sovereign of this country.
Signer of the Constitution James Wilson (1742-1798) said, “Sovereignty resides in the people; they have not parted with it.”
U.S. President Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) said that “the people of these United States are the rightful masters of both congresses and courts.”
U.S. President Grover Cleveland (1837-1908) said that “the sovereignty of sixty millions of free people is, to my mind … the working out … of the divine right of man to govern himself and a manifestation of God’s plan concerning the human race.”
Who is the King of America? – We are! “We the People” are the king!
The word “citizen” is Greek and has the connotation of a co-ruler, a co-sovereign, a co-king. We, as the citizens of these United States, are all co-kings of America.
Unfortunately, most of “we the people” do not know this, as the public school institutions that indoctrinated them espoused a false narrative that we must obey those who rule over us.
When our constitution was written, and with the addition of the Bill of Rights, our nation had the greatest beginning of any nation on this planet. Unfortunately, over the last several generations, governments at federal, state and local levels slowly usurped the liberties of the peoples to expand their own power and authority to, in turn, enrich themselves at the expense of we the underlings below them.
What we have now is the constitution formally, yet not functionally. We still abide by our constitution to elect the president and members of Congress, and in theory to uphold our civil liberties, but unfortunately none of the barriers that were supposed to place checks upon the government work anymore, as our government does, and will do, anything that it can get away with.
Our Constitution, like the Magna Carta, is now simply mere words upon paper, incapable of enforcing itself, and is an abysmal failure. As a veteran who swore an oath to protect the document, it hurts my soul to finally comprehend this. I am reminded of a quote by Lysander Spooner (1808-1887), who said: “Whether the Constitution really be one thing or another this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.”
There are little to no differences between the Republican and Democratic parties, as both will use the power of government to suppress others, and both will, and do, use their positions to enrich themselves and their cronies.
Our government is notorious for enforcing laws it chooses to, not enforcing what it doesn’t want to, and looking the other way when it’s convenient, especially when their own agencies break the law, such as when the FBI or the NSA, etc. violate your 4th Amendment right to privacy with warrantless computer hacking of every computer, everywhere across the U.S.A, every day.
Joesph Biden has been an abysmal failure as a president. Rampant inflation is robbing the little remaining value of our hard-earned paychecks. Our nation is more than $33.72 trillion in debt, and Biden is throwing money at two wars now. I once joked about Biden that former President Jimmy Carter has lived as long as he has just so he could die knowing that there was a finally a president with a sadder record than his own.
And Donald Trump is not the messiah that many mistakenly assume that he is. He had one shot at being president thus far and not only failed to drain the political swamp of Washington, D.C., but embraced it by increasing the debt by 33.1%, with another $6.7 trillion added to the debt that each and every one of us must shoulder.
We must remember during this upcoming election year that we the people are their boss, and it is not the other way around. The only way we can fix this problem is to vote out of office nearly every incumbent across the board, as a warning to all who may seek office, that we the people are their rightful masters.
