What is a Sovereign?
What form of government does the United States have?
The viewpoint of a sovereign in relation to health freedom issues is that we as spiritual beings have a natural right of ownership of our bodies. This means that "self-medication" is a natural, human right. The current de facto government and the owners/controllers of the pharmaceutical corporations have been working assiduously to undermine and usurp this right. To understand what a "Sovereign" is from a constitutional basis one must first understand what form of government exists in these united States.
Politicians and the mainstream media have constantly inculcated people with the notion that they live in a "democracy". However, if you carefully read the Declaration of Independence ("The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America", In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776) and the Constitution for these united States of America, you may be surprised to find that the word "democracy" does not appear even once in either of these two founding documents. This is because the framers of the Constitution did not want to create a "democracy". On the contrary, they wanted to create a "Republic".
James Madison, the "the Father of the Constitution", stated: "Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property, and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths." ["Economic Solutions", p. 35] Benjamin Franklin once quipped: "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote."
Article IV, Section 4 of the united States' Constitution, the "supreme Law of the Land", states: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government...."
Therefore, the united States is a REPUBLICAN Form of Government, slick-talking politicians and media talking heads to the contrary notwithstanding. Not only that, the citizens are guaranteed a REPUBLICAN Form of Government as a matter of constitutional Right. But just what does it mean to have a REPUBLICAN Form of Government? To answer that question simply look in Black's Law Dictionary under "Government" and you will see the following definition:
"Republican government. One in which the powers of sovereignty are vested* in the people and are exercised by the people, either directly, or through representatives chosen by the people, to whom those powers are specially delegated." [Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth ed., p. 695]
Black's Law Dictionary defines a "Sovereign" as: " A person, body, or state in which independent and supreme authority is vested; a chief ruler with supreme power; a king or other ruler in a monarchy."
"We the People" are the Sovereigns because sovereignty is vested in the citizens, not in their (civil) servants. Furthermore, individual citizens have the authority to choose whether to exercise their powers of sovereignty either 1) directly or 2) through representatives. For example, sometimes people exercise their powers of sovereignty directly when they make a citizen's arrest. On the other hand, people can also choose to act through a representative by electing a civil servant (e.g., sheriff) to make arrests for them.
Before the founding of our country, people were mere subjects of the king of England, the Sovereign. However, after our country was founded the sovereignty of the king was ended in America and the people became Sovereigns instead of subjects. As Sovereigns, the citizens are now the kings (and queens) of their own castles, i.e., our homes. Therefore, ownership of our homes is vested in each of us, thereby securing our Rights to private property. That is, by constitutional Law, the state does not own our property. However, the state, via our "public servants" and lawyers, has been usurping these and other Rights through deception, especially in the banking industry (Federal Reserve fraud).
Little by little from the time of the founding of our county people have been programmed to believe that politicians are the "leaders" and that sovereignty is vested in them, not in "We the People" as individuals. Abraham Lincoln reminded people repeatedly of these basic founding principles--a country "of the people, by the people, for the people". Lincoln also stated: "The people are the masters of both Congress and courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it!" Yes, the people are the masters and the politicians are the servants. What does the master of the house do when he has a disobedient servant? He fires him, doesn't he?
Today most people are afraid to stand up to their public/civil servants. The servants have taken over the house. The people often allow corrupt politicians to usurp* constitutional Rights, unalienable Rights and our sovereignty. This phenomenon is the direct result of people no longer taking the viewpoint of being Sovereigns, that is, of being the masters of the house. Therefore, to turn the tide of corruption all one needs to do is to assume the viewpoint of a Sovereign and exercise the Rights of a Sovereign. The only reason a servant can usurp the authority of the master of the house is if the master lets him (i.e., acquiescence or consent to the usurpation). This may sound all very simplistic and theoretical, but one can demonstrate the workability of this principle in real life, as I and many others have done.
* vested: "Fixed; accrued; settled; absolute; complete. Having the character or given the rights of absolute ownership; not contingent; not subject to be defeated by a condition precedent. Rights are "vested" when right to enjoyment, present or prospective, has become property of some particular person or persons as present interest; mere expectancy of future benefits, or contingent interest in property founded on anticipated continuance of existing laws, does not constitute "vested right." [Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition]
* usurp: To seize and hold any office by force, and without right; applied to seizure of office, place, functions, powers, rights, etc. of another. [Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition]
