Sovereignty defined from Merriam Webster’s on-line dictionary. But what does this mean for you?
Our countries founding fathers had a deep understanding of this word. When America was a colonial offshoot of the British empire, this meant that every man, woman and child was a, for lack of a better word, a slave to the sovereign country of Great Britain, or to be more precise lackeys to King George III.
While taxation was an important part of the American Revolutionary war against Great Britain it wasn’t the main reason we revolted against King George.
So, what was the main reason for the American Revolutionary war? It was to enable the people of America to decide their own sovereignty.
Our founding fathers were animate believers that man, being a creation of God, and created in God’s likeness; and God, being a free and sovereign entity, meant that man also was his or her own sovereign entities.
This means, what I have is mine and mine alone. My name. My property. My time. My knowledge. My thoughts. My beliefs. This all belongs to me and to no one else.
When America was a colony of Great Britain that meant that my name, my property, my time and my knowledge was the property of King George III. So, they were not, in the Royalties point of view, mine.
Any form of government outside of self, is in essence, a forfeiture of your sovereignty to an external entity.
So, our founding fathers created guidelines on how this new America would operate. These guidelines were named the Constitution of the United States of America.
But, some of our founders also thought these guidelines were not enough so again they convened and created our first amendments to this constitution.
Both the constitution and the amendments having been created to PROTECT your personal sovereignty.
In general our founding fathers created their first laws based on a combination of both civil law and common law.
But, there is a twist. And this is where personal responsibility plays a big part in all of this. Our founding fathers wanted each and every single American to be a part of this system. This, being a means to prevent the takeover of and by bureaucrats.
Now, as time has passed, because we, as Americans have ignored our civic duty to protect our own personal sovereignty have allowed lawmakers and bureaucrats to strip away what is, given by God, the ownership of Me.
There are those in this world who truly believe that you do not own yourself. They truly believe that you can not govern yourself. They would have you give them all of your time, knowledge, property for their convoluted personal self interest.
They have created organizations, political parties, governing agencies, an endless list of taxes all to strip away your GOD GIVEN SOVEREIGNTY.
The ball is in your court Americans. Do the many stand up and tell the few NO MORE? Or will you continue to allow them to take away your sovereignty?
