Decentralized Government

The Republic in crisis

The Founding Fathers of the United States understood the problems of both centralized power (tyranny) and pure democracy (mob rule), and so devised a system where the two are intricately balanced. This balance is articulated in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Together they are perhaps the best formal system yet devised to implement Fractal Sovereignty, beginning with the assertion that the sovereignty of the individual — his life, liberty and the pursuit of his happiness — cannot be usurped by the state. They go on to assert the sovereignty of the separate States that compose the Union:

The Founders recognized that a system of self-government of the people, by the people and for the people could only endure if We The People remain vigilant against the predators and parasites which would inevitably infiltrate and infect the apparatus of the state. When Benjamin Franklin was asked, upon leaving the Constitutional Convention, whether we got a republic or a monarchy, he replied: “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

Perhaps the greatest threat to the Republic until now was the Civil War, instigated by the elite working through the banksters. President Lincoln’s main goal was not to end slavery, but to preserve the Republic. On the walls of the Lincoln Memorial are engraved these words from his Gettysburg Address:

We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

The Republic went on to endure another 148 years to this day, but the elite have not been idle. Control of money has always been their primary lever of power used to control every other aspect of society. As the infamous bankster Mayer Rothschild stated in 1790: “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” The elite gained control of the money system in 1913, with the creation of the Federal Reserve Banks. In the 98 years since, they have nearly succeeded in using that lever to wrest control of the state from The People. The Republic is in graver danger now than during the Civil War, and will be lost unless The People defend the spirit of the Constitution by reclaiming sovereignty from the state which they created but which has turned from servant to master.

“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.” — James Madison

Reclaiming sovereignty

The strategy is simple: massive decentralization in every area of society, beginning with the monetary system. Each of us can begin by simply buying physical silver and gold. To accomplish this on a large enough scale to save the Republic, we need to educate The People. Fortunately, the internet is still relatively decentralized and allows us to bypass the corrupt educational system and establishment media. The Don’t Tread on Me blog and the Sons of Liberty Academy are already doing this. Join us and help spread the word.

But buying silver and gold is only the first step in regaining control of our money and our sovereignty. Legal tender laws and capital gains tax laws need to be changed through the political process provided by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Accordingly, if change cannot be effected at the federal level, then it can be effected by reasserting the sovereignty of the individual States which compose the Union.

Washington is still heading full speed toward a cliff, despite the efforts of a handful of principled statesmen like Congressman Ron Paul. Ron has perennially introduced bills to audit the Federal Reserve and to reinstate gold and silver as non-taxable legal tender, but he stands virtually alone against a tsunami of corruption in the “District of Criminals” and so his legislation is usually stalled or defeated. Now that he is the Monetary Policy Subcommittee Chair, he may have more influence. And we can hope that he will win the presidency in the forthcoming national election. Indeed, he may be the only remaining hope of meaningful positive change from within the federal government.

Utah State Rep. Ken Ivory

But rather than gamble that Ron Paul alone can save the Republic, the State of Utah has recently reasserted its sovereignty by declaring that gold and silver are legal tender and are not subject to capital gains taxes. State Representative Ken Ivory is one of many legislators promoting State Sovereignty/States Rights as an antidote to the corruption of the federal government, as sanctioned by the Constitution. During his recent interview with Eric King, he mentioned that 11 other states are following Utah’s example.

Ken and other legislators are coordinating their efforts to identify the areas where the federal government has exceeded its constitutional authority and then to systematically restore usurped power to the States. You can learn more about such efforts through the Tenth Amendment Center. Also, two years ago Alex Jones interviewed many legislators concerned about States rights.  You can listen to them in this States Fight Back YouTube playlist.
