Deconstructing America #001

Mystery #001
The Strange Disappearance of the Republican Form of Government
by Jeff Ganaposki

At this time, there are (unofficially) over 320 million Americans, of which less than 1 in 100,000 can accurately define the republican form of government, its origin and source. That’s roughly 3,200 people. And it’s a guesstimate based on the pervasive propaganda and indoctrination that disguises the republican form.

Most people assume that a republican form is synonymous with a republic, but that is not correct. The People’s Republic of China is a republic but NOT a republican form. It’s more a communist meritocracy, but I digress.

Others assume that America is a constitutional republic, which is not a reference to the republican form, because the republican form existed BEFORE the U.S. Constitution. And Art. 4, Sec. 4 only guarantees the already existing republican form to the people in the united States of America.

When I was a wee lad embraced by the arms of government approved indoctrination, I was shown the indirect democratic form of government – where the citizens voted for representatives and public officials who filled the offices of government. But a democracy, direct or indirect, is not a republican form. In fact, they are mutually exclusive. In a democracy, a majority can legally persecute a minority. And America is NOT a democracy – especially not a parliamentary democracy.

As part of the disinformation campaign, I was repeatedly told that the citizens were the bosses, and the elected officials were their servants – as in public servants. But a cursory examination exposed the lie. Once elected, no campaign promise was binding, but the acts of the official were binding on his constituency, the electorate.

The biggest whopper was that the president was the most powerful man in America, and empowered to govern us. In reality, he’s the highest ranking public servant, one step down in status from the lowest non-subject American. He may be the Commander in Chief of the armed forces, but Congress has the power to declare war, activate the militia, and determine funding of said actions.

When one tries to find an official “legal” definition, suddenly it becomes muddled.

Under “G” – – –

GOVERNMENT (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. In re Duncan, 139 U.S. 449, 11 S.Ct. 573, 35 L.Ed. 219; Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. (21 Wall.) 162, 22 L.Ed. 627.

– – – Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, P. 695

Under “R” – – –

REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT. A government in the republican form; a government of the people; a government by representatives chosen by the people. In re Duncan, 139 U.S. 449, 11 S.Ct. 573, 35 L.Ed. 219.

– – – Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, P. 1303

When I first read that definition, I thought they were referring to the citizens voting for their representatives and government officers.
I was being misled.

CLUE #001

In the Declaration of Independence, we find the first clue.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable 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.”

All men – which includes women under common English usage – contrary to the Left wing nuts – (male terms include female, whereas female terms exclude the male) – all men are created equal before the law – none higher – no royal class;
All men are endowed with rights that include but are not limited to natural rights (life, right to defend oneself and one’s property, privacy, good reputation, etc.), natural liberty (the right of dominion over one’s person and property, absolute ownership of private property), personal liberty (the right to travel upon public roads and water ways, without hindrance), inherent powers (to self government, control over one’s children, etc), privileges and immunities inherent in the people.

And governments are instituted to secure these endowed rights.


However, there is a problem. In today’s America, we’re told that we’re born into U.S. citizenship, that comes with mandatory civic duties such as jury duty, militia duty, paying taxes, and so on. If you are so obligated, then you cannot simultaneously have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Because if you disregard the government’s orders, you will be deprived of your property, liberty and perhaps your life.
Consider that militia duty – the obligation to train, fight, and die on command – is a definite violation of one’s sacred endowment. And yet the Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that civic duties are not involuntary servitude.

What’s going on?

Perhaps we volunteered and can’t recall how or when?

Recapping, all men have endowed rights, but citizens have mandatory civic duties that abrogate endowed rights. And governments are instituted to secure endowed rights, but imposition of citizenship at birth, voids endowed rights that governments were instituted to secure.

Can’t have it both ways!
Either the governments recognize American people have endowed rights or they’re in breach of the Declaration of Independence, imposing involuntary servitude implied by citizenship at birth – infants cannot consent.

And any skeptics who think that the Declaration is NOT the foundation of law in these united States should direct their attention to their state constitution wherein one should find a restatement of the Declaration regarding the people’s endowment.


In the united States of America, each state is a sovereign, and the United States in Congress assembled is a foreign corporation with respect to each state. The U.S. government has limited exclusive jurisdiction, and has no general jurisdiction over the 50 states united.
So the 14th amendment didn’t impose citizenship on the people in the states united. It was instituted for imposing citizenship upon former privately owned chattels. But it suited the government to let people assume otherwise, because there was a deliberate shuffle done in the 1820s that began the eradication of the republican form of government from the minds of Americans.


Under the original recipe, governments were instituted among men to secure creator endowed rights – adjudicating disputes, prosecuting criminals, and defending the nation. In other words, mutual aid and cooperation in defending Americans from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And nothing more without consent of the governed.

Under such a lean and mean government, you’re not going to get rich and powerful. In fact, no endowed right was taxable lest government diminish them by raising taxes. Only government privileges were taxable. And in those early days one had to be a property owner, tax payer, militia man, and be held to a higher standard of behavior because public service was a privilege not a right, and the people could object to those they found disreputable, unacceptable or disgusting. That’s right – only the citizens and elected officials were bound to obey the ‘rules’ that they consented to – not the sovereign people.


It is apparent that many Americans, especially the Founding generation, knew that all men had endowed rights and governments were instituted to secure them. And that only citizens had duties and obligations that abrogated endowed rights. How do we know this? The end of the Declaration of Independence spells it out:
“…And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
The founders surrendered their endowed rights to life, property ownership and liberty in order to secure endowed rights as the new government of these states united. And all citizens are presumed to have made the same pledge – hence the legality of Selective Service (the draft) and other mandatory civic duties.
{Some have argued that the creator is sovereign over his creation. But this does not apply to a compact based government. Those who created and agreed to the rules of the compact, are subject to its terms. They surrendered sovereignty.}

In one supreme court case, Chisholm v. Georgia, Justice John Jay expresses the most astounding idea – that Americans are sovereigns – and the government is their agent (not unlike a regent), and not their ruler. This is the key feature of the republican form of government.

People who have Creator endowed rights are basically sovereigns without subjects, masters of their dominion, and enjoy liberty, freedom and independence. Remember, they were born equal before the law – none higher. And the highest status at law is sovereign. There is none higher than sovereign.

As a sovereign, and master over that which you absolutely own, you can defend your rights as you see fit. No servant government can promise to protect you, it’s impossible to ever have enough protectors. Your survival is your responsibility.
If you’ve ever wondered why American entertainment had so much violence in it, and historical heroes were often rough and tumble fighters, now you know. A right to life is useless unless defended, and a people unwilling to defend their rights are easily conquered. So, too, are people who don’t know they have rights to defend.

If You Cannot Carry Weapons Without Government Permission, You Do Not Have a Right to Life. You Only Have a Privilege to Live, Revocable by the State.

A right undefended is useless.

[] Citizens, who gave consent to be governed, surrendered their endowed rights in exchange for privileges that come with mandatory civic duties that abrogate endowed rights.


These subjects can only defend government granted privileges.


It has been said that the American Revolution was directly fought by only 3% of the population, because most Americans weren’t wholly behind the rebellion. And those who prevailed had no intention of turning over the nation that they had just created to those “stay at homes” and “clever scoundrels”. That’s why citizenship was quite a burden. The founders wanted to insure that only the best could be servants to the masses.

By the 1820s, enough of the founders were dead and their knowledge forgotten, so that the third generation decided enough was enough. Why endure the bulk of the taxes and burdens of duty? They were going to “fix” things so a career in politics was more rewarding. The stringent requirements for citizens / electors were eased so that any warm body could vote – especially if helped along by free beer – and suddenly populist partisan politics blossomed. Now, servant government had plenty of warm bodies to govern and tax. Which led to abuses that culminated in the Civil War of 1861, a most misunderstood conflict.

As stated before, Americans are born equal, and have endowed rights, and are sovereigns without subjects under the republican form of government. How did the governments deal with the inequitable situation of chattel slavery? Simple – it was only allowed as a government taxable privilege under the CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY. That was why the Confederate States seceded instead of merely withdrawing from the democratic form. If they reverted back to the republican form, no sovereign could own slaves. As to the grievances of the Southern states, they were only applicable to the subject citizens, not to the sovereign people for whom all government was created. That’s why LINCOLN was correct in preserving the UNION and prosecuting the Civil War. The beneficiaries of the Union were the sovereign people in the republican form – not the subject citizens in the democratic form, north or south.

Unfortunately, historical revisionists have created disinformation and mythology to imply that the war wasn’t fought over slavery but economic injustices caused by tariffs, and so on. But the truth is that the Confederate subjects and their governments decided to derail the United States sovereignty train, and by division, weaken both sides – which did not benefit the sovereign people – what few remained.

And as the years passed, fewer Americans knew of their sovereign heritage and blindly signed up as citizens and residents, unknowingly surrendering their birthright.

What is that birthright?
You were born equal before the law, no one can be born higher. Thus you are a sovereign, and the government is your servant and agent instituted to help secure your Creator endowed rights, which include but are not limited to natural rights, natural and personal liberty, inherent powers, absolute ownership of private property, privileges and immunities not based on consent to be governed. You are the social equal of every monarch on the planet, and all other titled nobility are inferior to you. That’s why Americans do not kneel nor bow. It’s also why Americans can marry foreign nobility and not violate their local laws prohibiting marriage to “commoners.” We are kings and queens, lords of our land, with the sovereign prerogatives to inflict capital punishment on trespassers without benefit of a trial. (Private property – no trespassing – trespassers will be shot) [not applicable to estate]

Which leads us to the last question : who benefits at tricking a whole nation into squandering their birthright and transferring wealth and power to miscreants?

America’s republican form of government makes America the most dangerous nation. For if we succeeded, all other people would be inspired to overthrow their sovereign monarchs and governments. And that may explain our current dire situation.

Article I Declaration of Rights [Section 1 – Sec. 32]
( Article 1 adopted 1879. )
Section 1.
All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.
Pennsylvania Constitution,
Article 1, Section 1. Inherent Rights of Mankind

All men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent and indefeasible rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, of acquiring, possessing and protecting property and reputation, and of pursuing their own happiness.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
PRIVATE PROPERTY and ESTATE are mutually exclusive

PRIVATE PROPERTY – As protected from being taken for public uses, is such property as belongs absolutely to an individual, and of which he has the exclusive right of disposition. Property of a specific, fixed and tangible nature, capable of being in possession and transmitted to another, such as houses, lands, and chattels.

– – – Black’s Law dictionary, sixth ed., p.1217

OWNERSHIP – … Ownership of property is either absolute or qualified. The ownership of property is absolute when a single person has the absolute dominion over it… The ownership is qualified when it is shared with one or more persons, when the time of enjoyment is deferred or limited, or when the use is restricted.
– – -Black’s Law dictionary, sixth ed., p. 1106

LAND. … The land is one thing, and the ESTATE in land is another thing, for an ESTATE in land is a time in land or land for a time.
– – -Black’s Law dictionary, sixth ed., p.877

ESTATE – The degree, quantity, nature and extent of interest which a person has in real and personal property. An estate in lands, tenements, and hereditaments signifies such interest as the tenant has therein.

– – -Black’s Law dictionary, sixth ed., p.547

REAL ESTATE …. is synonymous with real property.

– – – Black’s Law dictionary, sixth ed., p.1263

REAL PROPERTY … A general term for lands, tenements, heriditaments; which on the death of the owner intestate, passes to his heir.

– – – Black’s Law dictionary, sixth ed.,p.1218

INTEREST – …More particularly it means a right to have the advantage of accruing from anything ; any right in the nature of property, but less than title.
– – -Black’s Law dictionary, sixth ed., p. 812

Estate = real and personal property = real estate = qualified ownership

Only land and property absolutely owned by an individual is private property. All else is estate, held with qualified ownership.

An example of the lost knowledge of our forefathers comes from “The Devil’s Dictionary”, by Ambrose Bierce, a collection of humorous definitions, originally published in a weekly paper starting in 1881.
Apparently his audience knew what he was writing about, though today’s reader would not.
ALIEN, n. An American sovereign in his probationary state.

” PERSONAL LIBERTY, or the Right to enjoyment of life and liberty, is one of the fundamental or natural Rights, which has been protected by its inclusion as a guarantee in the various constitutions, which is not derived from, or dependent on, the U.S. Constitution, which may not be submitted to a vote and may not depend on the outcome of an election. It is one of the most sacred and valuable Rights, as sacred as the Right to private property…and is regarded as inalienable.”

– – – 16 Corpus Juris Secundum , Constitutional Law, Sect.202, p.987.


” Our theory of government and governmental powers is wholly at variance with that urged by appellant herein. The rights of the individual are not derived from governmental agencies, either municipal, state or federal, or even from the Constitution. They exist inherently in every man, by endowment of the Creator, and are merely reaffirmed in the Constitution, and restricted only to the extent that they have been VOLUNTARILY SURRENDERED BY THE CITIZENSHIP to the agencies of government. The people’s rights are not derived from the government, but the government’s authority comes from the people. The Constitution but states again these rights already existing, and when legislative encroachment by the nation, state, or municipality invade these original and permanent rights, it is the duty of the courts to so declare, and to afford the necessary relief. The fewer restrictions that surround the individual liberties of the citizen, except those for the preservation of the public health, safety, and morals, the more contented the people and the more successful the democracy.”

– – – City of Dallas v Mitchell, 245 S.W. 944
. . .
The rights of the individual / national / non-citizen / inhabitant / non-resident are not derived from government, but are Creator endowed.
But once consent to be governed is granted, via citizenship, that endowment has been surrendered / waived by the citizenry. Why? Because mandatory civic duties abrogate endowed natural rights, natural and personal liberty, absolute ownership of private property, etc, etc.

(a) Pennsylvania militia.–The militia of this Commonwealth shall consist of:
(1) all able-bodied citizens of the United States and all other able-bodied persons who have declared their intention to become citizens of the United States, residing within this Commonwealth, who are at least 17 years six months of age and, except as hereinafter provided, not more than 55 years of age…
“The great draft riot in New York City in July 1863 involved Irish immigrants who had been signed up as citizens to swell the vote of the city’s Democratic political machine, not realizing it made them liable for the draft.”

Geo.Wash. Sums it up nicely in 1783 – long before the constitution
. . .
“It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.”

– – – George Washington; “Sentiments on a Peace Establishment” in a letter to Alexander Hamilton (2 May 1783); published in The Writings of George Washington (1938), edited by John C. Fitzpatrick, Vol. 26, p. 289.

[… Every citizen … owes a portion of his property … and services in defense … in the militia … from 18 to 50 years of age… ]

The Supreme Court has held, in Butler v. Perry, 240 U.S. 328 (1916), that the Thirteenth Amendment does not prohibit “enforcement of those duties which individuals owe to the state, such as services in the army, MILITIA, on the jury, etc.” In Selective Draft Law Cases, 245 U.S. 366 (1918), the Supreme Court ruled that the military draft was not “involuntary servitude”.

Since the militia only include CITIZENS, and not all people (who apparently retain their rights), citizenship must be voluntary. But once one volunteers, those civic duties become mandatory.

If government claims the power to impose citizenship upon infants that cannot consent, it violates the very basis of law in these united States of America.

“… at the Revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people, and they are truly the sovereigns of the country, but they are sovereigns without subjects, and have none to govern but themselves. . .
“… In Europe, the sovereignty is generally ascribed to the Prince; here, it rests with the people; there, the sovereign actually administers the government; here, never in a single instance; our Governors are the agents of the people, and, at most, stand in the same relation to their sovereign in which regents in Europe stand to their sovereigns.”
– – – Justice John Jay, Chisholm v. Georgia, 2 U.S. 2 Dall. 419 419 (1793)

“Our” governments are agents of the sovereign people. Obviously, no American government can exercise the power to impose subjugation upon the sovereign people they were instituted to serve, not rule, govern, nor trespass upon our endowed rights.

And if fraud was used to get your consent, you have the legal right to denounce the fraud, and withdraw consent, restoring all your endowed rights, etc.
“There is no question of the general doctrine that fraud vitiates the most solemn contracts, documents, and even judgments.”
– – – United States v. Throckmorton, 98 U.S. 61 (1878)
