Was there really an independence day? Did we, americans get our independence?
Or, were we sold up the river by the crown in exchange for someone else promising that they would make us pay?
Everyone points to the Declaration of Independence as a holy document... and, although it is a very good document, it has no bearing on our conversation or legal standing. It is a red cloth held aloft that hides the sword behind it from the outraged bull.
The Constitution for The United States of America is almost the complete opposite of the Declaration of Independence. So, pretty much annulling anything in that document.
But, even worse, this constitution isn't for the people.
It is for "We the People". And no, it wasn't capitalized because that was the thing to do.
(we are just told that so that we do not march on DC and slaughter all the vermin therein)
In a court case, Padelford Fay tried to dispute a tax, stating it was unconstitutional.
The judgement came back, and the supreme court said:
"No private person has a right to complain by suit in court on the ground of a breach of the United States constitution; for, though the constitution is a compact, he is not a party to it."
(Padelford Fay & Co. v The Mayor and Alderman of the City of Savannah 14 Georgia 438, 520)
Today, "The US" is a corporation filed under England.
So... what independence?
We have always been beholden to the crown.
We elect the person with the strongest blood ties to the Kings of England.
And we keep electing the same family.
We have no constitutional rights, what we have is an obligation to keep sending payments to the crown.
I love America, however, i hate The US and all the inbred, paedophilic, psychopathic monsters that run it.
So, i don't feel much like celebrating this day.
