Sovereignty 101

Some may ask, what is the big deal of being sovereign? What is this stuff about the U.S. being a corporation? And what does defacto mean? Well, here I hope to answer these questions as well as inform you about the TRUE definition of the “sovereign” movement and why it’s so very important to “We the People”.

Let’s start with the word, sovereign.
1.a person who possesses sovereign authority or power; specif., a monarch or ruler
2.a : possessed of supreme power <a sovereign ruler>
b : unlimited in extent : absolute
c : enjoying autonomy : independent

This is what our founding fathers wanted for “We the People”. That we’d no longer be dependent upon anyone else’s whims or fancy but that each of us would be INDEPENDENT rulers of our own lives and homes…. SOVEREIGNS in our own right!
This is why our founding fathers wrote the declaration of independence, telling the king to take a hike, because we were and are kings and queens of our own land and selves. We claimed the sovereign right to rule ourselves!
They further decreed that we were the sovereign when they wrote the preamble to the constitution by stating, “We the People”. WE were the sovereigns creating a government to serve US in order to form a more perfect Union…..establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
In order to form a more perfect union…. what does that mean? Well, back when this was written, there were 13 states, each their own territory, their own little country. But, to keep their sovereignty, against those who would like to take it, they decided to unite as there is power in greater numbers. And in doing so, each wanted to keep their own rights to sovereignty but needed to agree upon some common rules to ensure this and at the sametime, perfect the union with common grounds of ruling so not to tread on their sovereignty.
This then leads to …  establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Notice it states.. FOR the United States of America. Meaning, these are rules FOR the government that they were creating and NOT FOR the people creating it! Why is this important? Because it further shows how important it was to our founding fathers to keep control of and over those who would do the governing. They already knew what happens, when those who are in power would do when they had complete sovereign power, and they wanted to avoid that again at ALL costs! They had just put their lives on the line in order to keep their sovereign right to be kings over their own lives!
In the hierarchy of life, that which is created can NEVER be GREATER than the creator. Since “We the People” created the constitution setting up the government, WE are the creator and the government the creation. WE are greater than the government. And this is further espoused by our founding fathers to make it absolutely clear to one and all that we have sovereignty over this government in the declaration of independence… “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”
We can and SHOULD replace ANY part of or ALL of a government that decides IT is greater than the people it is supposed to serve and starts dictating what IT thinks is better/right for “We the People”.
