If we are to be truly candid & blunt—it has much to do with not only knowing the art & science of governing…but also having the ability to communicate the same to a variety of worldviews held by others. Without genuinely knowing WHAT you believe & WHY…politics is something to be avoided—not embraced. (This may also be a great place to start when you bring up the subject & your audience—one or all—go blank &/or head for the exit.)
The saying has never lost its cautionary & well-proven advice:
"Those who won’t stand for something—will fall for anything."
Your goal—as is ours—is to develop the ability to breakdown the seemingly complex. . .to SIMPLIFY. To understand the following key events is to also understand the politics of our day. You know that SOMETHING is wrong with the direction we’re going as a People & culture…& now you’ll know exactly how we got here. That is how we make a difference & THESE are the events.
From the time of the US Civil War, unelected bureaucrats have shaped public policy & a de facto Congress have passed laws & statutes that supported the top-down chain-of-command style governance as a result of the divided era—an attempt to preserve the Union of States by force.
This was in complete opposition to our Constitutional framework—where ‘We the People’ are the Sovereigns & the government carries out limited acts prescribed to it, in order to serve & protect its creators. Those would be every American Citizen…
- On March 27th, 1861—Americans lost their true Republican form of government when seven southern States’ representatives walked out of the US Congress…
This left our Legislative Branch without a "quorum" (the required minimum members needed to lawfully adjourn the assembly & set a date to reconvene—also known as a parliamentary state termed "sine die"). This event has, arguably, been held as the day our legitimate Constitutional Republic was dissolved—in principle & by law.
- In April of 1861—President Abraham Lincoln issued an Executive Order demanding Congress reconvene & provided the date to do so. Since that time, there has only existed such illegitimate—but nevertheless in effect—body UNDER ‘war powers’-type dictates deemed ‘by necessity’. In simpler terms…by FORCE via violence.
- The United States declared itself a municipal corporation through this de facto Congress in 1871. The same was reorganized on June 11 th, 1878 under the names "United States", "U.S.", "US", "U.S.A.", "USA", & "America".
- As US Bonds which funded the government came due, Congress was compelled to pass the Federal Reserve Act of 1913—surrendering constitutional authority to create, control & manage the US money supply into a few & mostly foreign banker’s hands.
- Federal Reserve Notes (FRN’s) represented a method for the government to continue functioning status quo—with just ONE catch. They were ‘debt instruments’. FRN’s were loaned to the US Government at a cost. Regional Federal Reserve Banks would circulate its currency on behalf of the government in exchange for "interest" payments on the total amount in circulation—to be initially be paid in GOLD.
- With the US Treasury being quickly depleted of its gold reserves, President Roosevelt declared the US bankrupt, in 1933, within days of taking office. US Citizens were essentially "pledged" as an asset (i.e. collateral) to finance this Chapter 11 bankruptcy procedure (reorganization plan). ALL private & public property in every State was included in this pledge/collateral:
"The ultimate ownership of all property is in the State; individual so-called ‘ownership’ is only by virtue of the Government, i.e. law, amounting to mere user; and use must be in accordance with law and subordinate to the necessities of the State."

- Being as this is how the current "system" evolved & operates—most are not even aware that they were registered into this commercial debt-based economy/system voluntarily via mere acceptance…being without knowledge of the scheme’s origin.
Registration comes in a variety of (mostly) ‘adhesion contracts’ that YOU and/or your parent(s)/guardian(s) filled out and signed—such are called ‘legal fictions’ (i.e. social security numbers, birth certificates, licenses, voter cards, etc.).
- This system has been incredibly successful—not only in producing unprecedented
revenue to support an ever growing ruler-class government—but in what is approaching near TOTAL control & manipulation of a majority of its citizens…who are almost entirely clueless as to their genuine/operative debt-slave status.
"The majority of the people of the United States have lived all of their lives under emergency rule. For 40 [now over 80] years, freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency."

- Remember… the US Government is only Sovereign in relation to other governments/nations in this world community—as it carries out necessary/expedient foreign affairs.
Here in America, the US Citizen is the actual Sovereign—of & from whom ALL legitimate political power/authority originates…
Make it simple for anyone in disbelief upon your explanation—
"Just WHOM is serving WHOM?"This ONE rhetorical can have an extraordinary reset button effect with many today. …it’s a good start for minds ready to GET REAL when reality is becoming more unreal.
