My Journey To God

July 19, 2007


by Mike Farris

On Wednesday, September 23, 1998, which I later learned was the first day of the 7th month on the Biblical calendar, and is also the Feast of Trumpets (Leviticus 23:24), I was in deep despair. At age 35, I had lost all hope. I had used drugs for 18 years, my wife of eight years had left me, taking my two young children with her. I had laid out from work that day to write a suicide letter and to make final plans to end my misery. My plan was to park my pickup truck in the employee parking lot, very early Thursday morning before anyone else came to work, and run a hose from the exhaust pipe so someone would find my dead body… but God had other plans.

About 8 o’clock Wednesday night, a friend (I call him my “angel” now) came to my house to ask me to get a tire for his motorcycle. He could see that my eyes were red from crying; and I told him of my suicide plan. While I was gone to get the tire, my friend called a preacher he knew and when I returned he handed the phone to me and said “someone” wants to speak to you.

The voice on the phone said, “I hear you got trouble.” I said, “Yes, I’m going to end all my trouble tomorrow.” He said, “Are you telling me you don’t want your life anymore?” I said, “Yeah, I’m going to kill myself.” What he said next changed my life. “GOOD!”, he said, “If you don’t want your life, give it to the Lord.”

Now, I had not been to church since I was eleven years old, and at the time I was talking to this preacher I was a complete Bible illiterate, but something came over me with such force that I felt God’s holy spirit enter my body, and I felt a peace I had never experienced before.

I said, “Lord Jesus, I give my life to you. Please tell me what to do.” The preacher man said, “You’ll be alright now.” And he hung up the phone. I told my motorcycle buddy to go on home, I would be OK. Within 10 minutes, my dad who lives 140 miles away called and asked was I OK? He had just gotten a strong urge to call me about 9:30 that night. I was still shaken from my experience, and told my dad all that had happened to me that day, and that I had just given my life to Christ. My dad said, “That’s great. Do you need me to come stay with you tonight?” I said, “No, you have to work and so do I, I’ll be OK.” My dad said, “OK son, I’ll see you this week-end.”

That night I slept the most peaceful rest I have ever had. The next morning, Father Yahweh gave me the first word of His message to me… T-H-A-T, THAT! I didn’t know then that there were six more words to follow in the next ten days, so I had no idea what “THAT” meant. All I knew it was from God and it was for me. I told everyone at work what had happened to me and they could see the change in me. But no one could tell me the meaning of THAT.

The next day, Friday, September 25th, God gave me the word CONDITION; still no meaning. Then Saturday, He gave me DEDICATION. My dad came that afternoon and I told him about the words that God was giving me, but my dad didn’t know the meaning either. My dad spent the night with me and Sunday morning we went to church together… the first time in over 20 years.

On Sunday, I received the word VERSATILITY. Monday, the word CO-DEPENDENT. Tuesday and Wednesday, no new words. Thursday, October 1st, I went to visit my grandmother and spent the night at her house and got the word, INTERPRETATION. Friday, October 2nd, which is the 10th day of the 7th month (Leviticus 23:27), I received the word… COMMANDMENT. Since then I have not received any new words. I waited until Thanksgiving to tell my dad that the words had stopped coming. My dad who has been a Christian for over 28 years, asked me to give him all the words I had received with the dates and days of the week they occurred on to see if there was a pattern or hidden code that Father Yahweh was revealing to me. The following is what the Holy Spirit revealed to my dad on December 9, 1998.

Yahweh gave you seven words, the number of spiritual completeness. In six days, or six words in this case, God created a new life in you; and on the 7th day He rested and gave you rest from all your troubles. Starting on the Feast of Trumpets which is an announcement of things to come, you received :

1. THAT: “clearness, purity, sincerity.” 2. CONDITION: “a premise upon which the fulfillment of an agreement or covenant depends.” 3. DEDICATION: ” self-sacrificing devotion.” 4. VERSATILITY: “many-sided, ability, capacity or usefulness of many kinds.” 5. CO-DEPENDENT: “relying on another for support.” 6. INTERPRETATION:”to understand in light of individual belief, judgement, or circumstance.” 7. COMMANDMENT: “something that is ordered by Almighty Yahweh.”

Here is the message of the seven words. When you gave your life to Christ unconditionally, your heavenly Father said if you are willing to do THAT (Hebrews 11:6) upon the CONDITION that I, Yahweh, will fulfill My covenant with you, then I will give you My salvation so your DEDICATION and VERSATILITY are not CO-DEPENDENT on anything or anyone except Yahshua the Messiah (Acts 4:12). Then I, Yahweh, will open the door of INTERPRETATION so you will understand in light of your individual circumstance (Job 42:5) that you may keep My COMMANDMENT. And this is My COMMANDMENT, that you agape-love one another that your joy may be full (John 15:1-17). Father Yahweh gave you the 7th word on the Day of Atonement which means at-one-ment with your heavenly Father; for absolutely without doubt, this is the destiny of every begotten Son of Yahweh. Amen and Amen.

This is the true testimony of my son, Robert Michael Farris. Not everyone will find God in the dramatic way my son did, however, you have the same promise… “seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened unto you…” To help you on your journey, I highly recommend the book, SonPlacing by Garrison Russell; available at SonPlacing

Also, start reading your Bible and just let it speak directly to you. If the Book says do a certain thing, do it. If the Book says not to do certain things, don’t do it. Your pastor or church organization mean well, but they cannot give you what they don’t have. Yahshua (Jesus) is the ONLY person who can give you Life and Peace… listen to Him.

Football Is In The Bible

July 19, 2007


by Mike Farris

In Texas where I grew up, football on all levels… high school, college, and the pros… is a religion. The amateurs play on Friday and Saturday, and the professionals on Sunday. Since God is sovereign and nothing exists without His hand in it, I began to ponder the question: “Why is American style football so popular, and what lessons can be learned from football?”

So, let’s examine football from a Biblical perspective. First, football is a game which only the elect can play on game day. Many are called to try out for positions, but few are chosen. Second, football is about overcoming the opponent. Third, football is about reaching a specific goal and winning. And fourth, football is a game of rules and has coaches to instruct the players.

When God calls Christians to become overcomers, many are called but few are chosen. Only the elect get in the game. Most of the team sits on the bench (church pews) and observe the game. But at least they are on the field, and when their team wins, they are all winners… “for we are all one body (team).” Does this mean that the bench-warmers don’t have to do anything except show up? Absolutely not! ALL players must practice overcoming and be ready to get in the game when called upon by the Coach.

In Ephesians 6:10-18, Coach Paul gives his team the pre-game pep talk and reminds them to check their football gear. I’ll paraphrase here… “the hip pads of truth, the shoulder pads of righteousness, shoes of preparation, above all the face mask of faith, helmet of salvation, and sword of the Spirit which is the game strategy from the Play Book.” Then Coach Paul asks his team to kneel for a locker room prayer, and prays that they may persevere and overcome their opponent.

When the team takes the field, there is much rejoicing and praise. The Cheer Leaders (choir) and the Band Director (song leader) lead the fans (congregation) in fight songs. (“Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war”) Sounds like a religious service to me.

There are eleven “starters or first stringers” on a football team; originally there were twelve. but Judas broke the rules and was booted off the team. The game is played in four quarters with a set time limit. Man’s years on earth are divided into four quarters and have a set time limit. Life is hard and then you die. Football is hard and you either win or lose. Every winning team has a winning Head Coach, and the Christian Head Coach has never lost a game. John 1:1 gives us some insight… “In the beginning was the Head Coach, and the Head Coach was with God and the Head Coach was God…” (ask anybody who ever played for Bear Bryant, or the great Eddie Robinson… look up their records)

The football field is laid out in ten yard increments (Ten Commandments). There are two side lines (statutes: physical & spiritual laws), and two goal lines (judgement: eternal life or eternal death) at each end zone. There are also two time clocks in football. One is the “game” clock which represents your time on earth, the other is the “play” clock which represents your spiritual decisions. The play clock gives you a very short time to call and execute your next play. Making the right decision determines whether you win or lose. There are five officials on the field(the five-fold ministry in Ephesians 4:11) who make sure the game is played by the Rules. Penalties are accessed for each violation (sin). At the last trumpet (whistle) the game is over.

To start the game, the football is kicked to the opposing team. The team is given four tries to go ten yards called a first down (hear, believe, confess, repent). The ball can be likened to the gospel (Good News of the Kingdom). This Good News is fumbled, kicked around, passed, and run with. The offense (the team in possession of the ball) wins games, but it’s the defense that wins championships. In the Spiritual game, Coach James says…” be doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving yourself into thinking that possession of the Good News is enough…” James 1:21-26. When a team gets the football across the opponent’s goal line, it’s called a touchdown and is worth six points (the number of man), but with a kicked extra point (conversion) the total is seven (spiritual completion). However, when a team chooses to run or pass the ball, it’s two points (prayer & fasting) for a total of eight. The team that kicks a field goal is awarded three points (faith, hope, and love). Tackling your opponent in his end zone is two points (trust & obey).

A team is judged by the quality of its opponents. The Father of the Head Coach owns the team and approves the team schedule. All Overcomers must defeat the following opponents to become champions: Adultery, Fornication, Impurity, Lust, Idolatry, Witchcraft, Hatred, Strife, Jealousy, Anger, Contention, Disunity, Heresy, Envy, Murders, Drunkenness, and Rebellion. Galatians 5:19-21. That’s a 17 game schedule that Overcomers must fight to win. (17 is 1+7=8, the number for a new beginning). In 1972, the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League went 17-0… but against much lesser opponents that Overcomers must face.

There are two types of Christians… overcomers and non-overcomers. Non-overcomers believe that the goal of salvation is to populate heaven with “saved sinners”. Overcomers know the real goal of salvation is to become like the Head Coach. Do what He did… crucify the works of the flesh, and get what He got… the crown of Life and championship ring, or reign if you prefer. Read it for yourself in James 1:12 and Revelation 3:21.

Professional football is a violent game and requires utmost faith in the Head Coach and His game plan. Overcomers are warriors. “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.” Matthew 11:12. Overcomers are professional assassins of their own carnality. An overcomer asks himself three questions every day.

1. Is what I am doing now building Christ-like character?

2. Is what I am doing now producing the fruit of the Spirit? Galatians 5:22.

3. Is what I am doing now helping me overcome the carnal mind?

What if you asked yourself these questions several times a day? Write these questions on 3X5 cards or on the back of business cards. Carry one with you at all times. Post one on your desk at work. Affix one to a conspicuous spot inside your car. And place another one on the mirror you use most at home. Read these questions several times a day. Focus on becoming the person the Head Coach chose you to be. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself actually headed in the direction you want to go. And even if you are tackled for a loss, step out of bounds, or get the wind knocked out of you, get back in the game. Quitters never win and winners never quit! The fearful and unbelieving will never know the sweetness of victory. That’s the lessons to be learned from football. “Be instant (ready) in (football) season and in the off season”… 2 Timothy 4:2. “There is a (football) season and a time to EVERY purpose under heaven…” Ecclesiastes 3:1-11

Football is the reason God created pigs… down to this very day, a football is called “the pigskin”. Other football traditions are straight out of the Bible also. Take tailgating… the Bible calls it feast days and burnt offerings. There are three times in the year when all males must present themselves… the playoffs (Passover), the league championship game (Pentecost), and the Super Bowl (Tabernacles). I can’t quote chapter and verse, but it’s in there.

The National Anthem of The Kingdom of God

July 19, 2007


by Mike Farris

The Lord is my Shepherd… that’s relationship.

I shall not want.. that’s supply.

He makes me to lie down in green pastures… that’s rest.

He leads me beside still waters… that’s refreshment.

He restores my soul… that’s healing.

He leads me in the paths of righteousness… that’s guidance.

For His name sake… that’s purpose.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death… that’s testing.

I will fear no evil… that’s protection.

For you are with me… that’s faithfulness.

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me… that’s discipline.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies… that’s hope.

You anoint my head with oil… that’s consecration.

My cup is running over… that’s abundance.

Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life… that’s blessing.

And I will dwell in the House of Yahweh forever… that’s security.

As any Bible reader knows, the above is taken from the Psalm 23. The Bible contains the history, promises, and covenants that God made with His servant people, the Israelites (not to be confused with ancient or modern “Jews”). Most of the Bible deals with government… how to live in peace with each other, and other nations.

North America was preserved by God as the final promised land for the re-gathering of the representatives of each of the 13 tribes of Israel. Colonial America had 13 colonies and Canada had 13 provinces for the double portion blessing of the first born. Rueben was the first born son of Jacob/Israel, but lost his birthright to the sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh. The history of the sons of Israel is well documented, but little believed because it conflicts with the “traditions of men”.

But God doesn’t lie and He doesn’t forget what He promised to the decendents of Jacob/Israel. One of the promises was to give them His divine Law to live by. Today, the American legal system doesn’t even recognize divine Law. (

 There is only human law which covers everything from buckling your seat belt to murder.

Today, Christians restrict God’s rule to just the spiritual realm. It has not always been this way. Less than a hundred years ago it was commonly believed that God’s Law encompassed everything… spiritual and temporal. Terrible and bloody conflicts like World War I (1914-1918) caused people to question this belief in God’s rule on earth.

Because of death and destruction caused by disease and wars, people began to believe that God really doesn’t care, or He ‘allows’ evil. Their blind Pastors began to ignore scriptures like Isaiah 45:7… “I (God) form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create EVIL: I the LORD do all these things.” And Amos 3:6…”shall there be EVIL in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?”

Christians began to doubt the power and sovereignty of God and began to believe in fables. They believed that God is “good” and Satan is “evil”, and poor old God just can’t control the Devil. No wonder Christianity has fallen on hard times. Without faith that God is the “doer” of it all, it becomes a tug of war between God and Satan, and Satan seems to be winning. The truth is: God IS sovereign and can do anything, anytime, and any way He chooses. Who is puny man to question the superior wisdom of Almighty God?

As for me, I pledge allegiance to the Kingdom of God, and to the King of creation; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in all.

Immigration ‘Compromise’ Sells Out Our Sovereignty

by Ron Paul

The much-vaunted Senate “compromise” on immigration is a compromise alright: a compromise of our laws, a compromise of our sovereignty, and a compromise of the Second Amendment. That anyone in Washington believes this is a credible approach to solving our immigration crisis suggests just how out of touch our political elites really are.

The reality is that this bill will grant amnesty to virtually all of the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens in the country today. Supporters use very creative language to try and convince us that amnesty is not really amnesty, but when individuals who have entered the United States illegally are granted citizenship – regardless of the fees they are charged – what you have is amnesty.

What is seldom discussed in the immigration debate, unfortunately, is the incentives the US government provides for people to enter the United States illegally. As we know well, when the government subsidizes something we get more of it. The government provides a myriad of federal welfare benefits to those who come to the US illegally, including food stamps and free medical care. Is this a way to discourage people from coming to the US illegally?

Additionally, one of the most absurd incentives for people to come to the US illegally is the promise of instant US citizenship to anyone born on our soil. That is why when Congress returns next week I will be re-introducing my Constitutional amendment to deny automatic citizenship to individuals born on US soil to parents who are not US citizens or who do not owe permanent allegiance to the United States.

There are many other very troubling items buried deep in the Senate’s immigration compromise. The bill explicitly calls for an “acceleration” of the March 2005 agreement between the US president, the president of Mexico, and the prime minister of Canada, known as the “Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America.” This somewhat secretive agreement – a treaty in all but name – aims to erase the borders between the United States, Canada, and Mexico and threatens our sovereignty and national security. The SPP was agreed by the president without the participation of Congress. It should be eliminated, not accelerated!

According to the pro-Second Amendment Gun Owners of America, the legislation also makes it easier to target gun dealers for prosecution. Even gun clubs could find themselves targeted under this immigration reform legislation.

Immigration reform should start with improving our border protection, yet it was reported last week that the federal government has approved the recruitment of 120 of our best trained Border Patrol agents to go to Iraq to train Iraqis how to better defend their borders! This comes at a time when the National Guard troops participating in Operation Jump Start are being removed from border protection duties in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas and preparing to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan! It is an outrage and it will result in our borders being more vulnerable to illegal entry, including by terrorists.

I will continue to oppose any immigration bill that grants amnesty to illegals or undermines our liberty and sovereignty.

Faith and Freedom America

July 19, 2007


by Mike Farris


Greetings to you in the name , and authority of, YAH-Shua the Anointed King (aka Jesus the Christ), Ruler of Heaven and Earth, which includes all civil governments. Psalms 24:1 and Matthew 28:18

If you are not aware, there are two governmental systems at work in the world. One is the Kingdom of Heaven with its Laws, Statutes, and Judgements which are are always true, right and good for its Citizens who are called Christian/Sheep. The other is the government of unregenerated man which I call the Baal/Wolf system with its rules, regulations, and policies which always leads to corruption, abuse of power, and injustice. Both of these systems are necessary, just as “good” and “evil” are nesessary. God always gives us a choice; He never forces us to trust and obey Him. God sets before mankind only two choices…Life or Death, therefore choose life.

The Sheep have a Shepherd/King and the Shepherd has Laws of Right and Wrong. The Wolf System has an alpha-wolf and the alpha-wolf has policy (might makes right) which they call “legal” and “illegal”. And of course, the Alpha-Wolf makes all the rules; he decides what is to his advantage. The Sheep are hard working, productive, and for the most part, peace-loving creatures. These very qualities make it easy for the wolves to exhort (obtain by threats, force, fraud, or abuse of power) most of the Sheep’s money, property, and freedom. A shrewd and criminal Constructive Fraud has been perpetrated over America (the Promised Land YAH gave to His Sheep) by the Wolf under counterfeit “color of law”. The Wolf forces the Sheep to pay a “tax” they do not owe; and makes the Sheep buy a “license” for everything (even marriage) they ordinarily have a RIGHT to do. Many imposter laws could be repealed if the Sheep would only listen to their Shepherd instead of the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” who stand in their 501(c)3 pulpits and lie to the Sheep. “Choose you this day whom you will serve”; and in another place it is written: “you cannot serve two masters.”

Since the founding of this once Christian Nation, under God, with Liberty and Justice for all, there has been a steady assault on the God-given Rights of the Sheep. However, the Wolf has absolutely no control or authority over you unless you allow yourself to be placed under his jurisdiction. The Shepherd/King said, “come out her (the Wolf System) My people, that you be not partakers of her sins (fraud, deceit, extortion, etc.), and you receive not her plagues” (things or persons that torment, vex, annoy, trouble, offend). Sound familiar? If you are not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Example: sending your children to the Wolf school system, and re-electing Wolves. Wolves eat Sheep and must gain entrance into the Sheepfold… never re-elect anybody! Public service is a brief civic duty, not a career…tenure corrupts.

You may think this letter sounds like some “anti-government-radical-extremist” (wolf propaganda) who hates Wolves and wants to “force” God’s Laws on everyone. NOT SO! As a Christian/Sheep, I love you enough to tell you the TRUTH… wrong is always wrong… and right is always right… even when the Wolf System says differently. Sheep are not “anti-government”… we are anti-corrupt-government.

You can help fix this corrupted system by making copies of this letter and sending it to family, friends, government personnel, media, schools, lawyers, accountants, bankers, clergy, and others who have been misinformed by the Wolf System. This letter will only raise awareness… nothing good will happen until the Sheep start practicing what they preach… i.e. obedience to the Shepherd/King’s Law. Faith without action is dead.
Nothing puts the fear of God into a Wolf quicker than an informed and active flock of Sheep who only listen to their Shepherd.

In the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy, God makes it very clear that He will give us a choice of whether we want to receive His blessings or His curses. Failure to obey God is at the root of all our problems… personally and nationally:

“If My people (the Sheep) which are called by My name (authority), shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from THEIR wicked ways (following Wolf policy), THEN will I (the Shepherd/King) hear from from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (America) 2 Chronicles 7:14

And Eli-Yah (this name means my Mighty One is YAH) came unto ALL the people(nationally) and said:”How long halt ye between two opinions? If YAH be God, follow Him; but if Baal (Lord Wolf), then follow him. And (We) the People answered him not a word”.  1 Kings 18:21. Sad isn’t it? How long America, how long? 1 John 5:4.

The Kingdom of Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people. Get informed, get involved, and get ready for the future because that’s where you’ll spend the rest of your life. What kind of person do you want to be? What legacy do you want to leave for future generations? Get informed, read my article: Why Americans Have No Rights.

Get involved:  

 Get ready for spiritual warfare,  read my article: Football Is In The Bible.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God and keep His commandments for this is the whole duty of man.” Ecclesiastes 12:13

Why Americans Have No Rights

July 18, 2007


by Mike Farris

If one can ignore the incessant propaganda that bombards us from what passes as “news” on TV, movies, and even music, one might ponder why Americans no longer have Rights over themselves, their children, and their property.

In the pre-socialist days prior to 1935, the Common Law based upon justice, reason, and common sense was the Law of the land. Since the Common Law is a prerogative of sovereigns, the servant government had no lawful authority to enact nor prosecute Common Law offenses. Many judges agreed that the Common Law was too harsh for a democracy. And they were right because Americans were promised a Republic form of government wherein the People (not citizens) were the sovereigns. Since property and sovereignty are inseparable, only those who absolutely owned property could rely upon the promises in the organic documents that instituted America’s governments at the Federal, State, and Local levels. In the original instrument, the Declaration of Independence, it was clearly stated that governments were instituted among men to do two things: help secure property rights, and govern by consent.

What are property rights? The absolute right to own ourselves, our labor, the fruits of our labor, and that for which we choose to trade our labor. Private property is defined as land, houses, and chattels (property other than real estate). Real estate is not private property. If two or more persons have a claim it ceases to be private property and devolves to estate. Estate is held with qualified ownership. It’s no surprise to me that State constitutions only list “real and personal property” as subject to taxation and regulation. Private property is sacred, and exempt.

Before the politicians (poly from the Greek, meaning many; and tic, an ugly bloodsucking parasite) sold out America, a sovereign who owned private property was the supreme authority and absolute monarch over his domain. An example of the absolute power to decide and act (sovereignty) was the landlord’s right to defend his property from trespass with deadly force. If capital punishment without benefit of trial isn’t evidence of individual sovereignty, I don’t know what else will suffice.

To retain the status of private property, only ONE individual can own said property, therefore, coverture was essential. Coverture was the transfer of the wife’s property to her husband for the duration of the marriage. This made the man the sole authority over the property insuring that servant government had to respect the family’s property rights in all things. There were very few problems as long as men loved their wives and treated them as equal partners.

Historical revisionists would lead one to believe that men “owned” their wives and children, not unlike slaves, and that it was a bad thing (as if collective ownership by “Big Brother” is superior). If one will recall, though men had the rights of ownership, they also had the sole duty of support and defense of their family. As the saying goes, “women and children first” into the lifeboat. Men were obligated to lay down their lives, if necessary, in defense of their family. Was it a burden that women and children had to obey the man of the family in exchange for his lifelong obligation to them? I don’t think so. Even the Law recognized that only the man could be held legally liable for failure to support his family. A wife who was forced by circumstances to “work outside the home” was tantamount to giving notice that the man was either unable, or worse, in violation of the Law, unwilling to support his family. At the very least, it was an insult to the manhood of the husband.

All this changed with the institution of national socialism in 1935. Known as the Social Security Act, or Federal Insurance Contribution Act (F.I.C.A.), this treacherous enactment was the final nail in the Grand Old Republic’s coffin. The ground work had been laid in 1913, giving control of America’s money to a privately held loan shark operation known as the Federal Reserve; and in 1916, the creation of the Fed’s collection agency, the Internal Revenue Service. It took the Fed less than 25 years to totally bankrupt America. The wealthiest nation in the history of the world was brought to her knees by the “Great Depression”, and had desperate Americans demanding that the government “do something”, which lead to the destruction of individual property rights. For the truth about the Federal Reserve (which is no more “Federal” than Federal Express), read FOURTH REICH OF THE RICH by Des Griffin and SECRETS OF THE TEMPLE: HOW THE FEDERAL RESERVE RUNS THE COUNTRY by William Greider.

Unknown to the gullible participants, enrollment into “Social Security” (I call it socialist insecurity), had dire effects. First, it changed their status as Free men to paupers eligible for charity from the public treasury. Second, it eliminated their private property Rights to own, and thus have a domicile, in exchange for a residence. Third, it obligated them to pay the claims made upon the bankrupted United States of America (upper and lower case spelling), replaced by a bankruptcy trustee, the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (all capital letters, a legal deception), and made the federal debt into their “national debt”. Fourth, it made it legally impossible to object to the worthless federal reserve notes. Fifth, it was prima facie evidence that a national socialist security number made them wards of the government and status criminals without the former protections accorded Free Inhabitants. Sixth, it made men (and women) subject to, and object of, administrative bureaucracy without constitutional restrictions. Seventh, it made them co-signers on all the loans the politicians borrow (present tense) from the Federal Reserve for the so-called “national debt”.

When Americans were reduced to bleating paupers, hands out for a share of their “entitlements”, the government could rightly ignore the centuries of Law based upon securing private property rights, and shift to policy based on voluntary consent. Without Common Law rights, the Common Law evaporated from public awareness (with a little help from public schools). In its place the strict rules and regulations of “civil law” have become the standard, Instead of natural and personal liberty, those birthrights of free Americans, we now have civil and political liberty as permitted by our master government. Contrary to popular belief, “Civil Liberty” is not freedom, but license (permission). Who needs permission (license) to own a dog, marry, build a house, travel public roads, carry a gun, and so on? Not a Free Man. Who needs to pay a tax for the privilege to live, work, or hold property? Not a Free Man!

Since 1935, Americans have surrendered their Republic form of government, guaranteed by Article 4, Section 4 of the constitution for the united States of America, and the promise to the Free Inhabitants of the Land from Article IV of the Articles of Confederation, in exchange for the mob rule of democracy. If you think democracy is something fine and good, you have been brainwashed, programmed, and indoctrinated with ANTI-AMERICAN propaganda. If you think it’s good that American lives and property are being used to make the world safe for democracy, your ancestors are spinning in their graves in outrage. Patrick Henry would spit on you. George Washington would turn his head from you. Ben Franklin would kick you in the arse.

All Law is for the protection of life and property. All else is mere policy, and policy requires fully informed consent. And though involuntary servitude was outlawed, there is no restriction on voluntary servitude, howbeit by fraud and deceit. Why do Americans keep re-electing the same politicians year after year? None of them ever honor their oath of office to defend and protect the constitution, and restore the Republic.

In answer to the question why Americans have no rights, national socialism is to blame. However, our continued consent to national socialism is the mechanism that has locked the chains of tyranny upon us. He who consents can’t complain… can’t bite the hand that feeds you… beggars can’t be choosers… you get the idea.
