A long standing aspect of American culture has been the patriotic pride in the sacrifices of our fore fathers to establish this nation – by far, one of the most prosperous and powerful in the history of the world. It’s commonly said that America is the greatest nation in the world, and for many decades, that was hard to argue with. Most of us grew-up reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in school, and it’s hard to go far in this country without seeing an American flag, but in recent years, it’s become more than obvious that the United States is not the beacon of purity and prosperity that many Americans believe it is.
This isn’t hard to understand when we look at the rise of nationalism, and it’s affects on US politics -particularly, the Civil War. There are so many misunderstandings about the Civil War that it has almost become, in the liberty-minded community, a cliche to point them out. After only a brief study of the war, it becomes so apparent that this history has been shrouded in propaganda that even its name begins to beg for curiosity -The American “Civil War”.
A “civil war” is when two opposing groups fight for control over one government. This abstraction of the term fits all too perfectly with the classic Good-Guy-Bad-Guy version of the story -that the noble and altruistic Union fought to save the slaves from the evil and racist southerners.

First, you should know that the situation is much more complex than that… it’s so complex that you might want to get a lawyer for this. Some of the more obvious fallacies are social aspects of the war, such as the fact that literally almost everyone was racist at this time and that overwhelming numbers of immigrants in the North actually faced more brutally exploitative conditions than the majority of slaves in southern states. Despite the obvious barbarism of the practice of owning other humans, the abolition and equal rights movements were still a phenomenon within the women’s rights movement. Social Darwinism had warped people’s minds, and they were still ignorant as hell about race.
Some of the more subversive issues that came out of the “Civil War” that still have not been addressed, legally, are issues with our Congress… such as the legality of it -and they require a little more background information and understanding before you can begin to make sense of any of it. When the Representatives of the southern states left the Congress on March 27th, 1861, there was not enough congressional presence to establish a next date of review -so the President, under the “Emergency of War-Powers” rule, took control of the Congress (*12 Stat 319, Title 50 USC §§ 212, 213, 215, Appendix 16, 26 CFR Chapter 1 § 303.1-6(a), and 31 CFR Chapter 5 § 500.701 Penalties), and this was never repealed.
This goes a little beyond the ‘extraordinary sessions and special adjournment’ outlined in clause 3 of Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution of the US. The United States has not had a legal meeting of Congress per the Constitution since 1861… I’m sure you, at least, had a feeling that we lived under a quasi-dictatorship. To make things worse, they have us hailing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution just because it redefines the terms of citizenship to include black men… it should have already included black men, AND women.
The problem here is that section 4 of the 14th Amendment establishes a cestui que trust, “Public Charitable Trust” between the United States federal government and its citizens to manage debt. Despite the fact that the 14th Amendment was never legally ratified (*see Dyett v Turner, 439 P2d 266, 267; State v Phillips, 540 P 2d 936; Coleman v. Miller, 307 U.S. 448, 59 S. Ct. 972; as well as Congressional Record, June 13, 1967, pp. 15641-15646), the Legislative Act was passed in 1871 which established a federally chartered corporation called “United States”, referred to as “US Inc.”, in accordance with the 14th Amendment. This act established all “citizens of the United States” as co-trustees and co-beneficiaries of the national debt of US Incorporated.
Perhaps you have heard the term “Social Contract”? Well, there it is -the social constructive trust… codified in half-ass law and enforced by over 100 years of state-sponsored propaganda. Before this, we were sovereign citizens… our states were sovereign bodies within the constitutional federation of the United States of America… Now, we and the states are subsidiary entities of US Inc, per this implied contract. But, perhaps the problem was that we never understood those values in the first place.
