Reader comments about this quote:
Ever so slightly - hmmmm - but, over all, spot on. "The people", broken down is: each and every, any and all individual persons (heirs to the King of Eternity / Universe / etc. (individually and in concert united). The State is sovereign as an extended expression of the sovereign person (individually and in concert united). The States united (U.S.A.) is sovereign as an extended expression of the several sovereign States. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, the current police state, and the bankrupted corporation are not sovereign but rather, have more helot, serf and slave patrons with deadly force than knowing sovereigns.

    The quote is made with neglect to the Declaration of Independence, a Stand Alone Contract "covenant" with the Creator, the constitution of our founding father's " ready minds" is to defend the Individual Sovereign At Liberty from the oppression of an individual monarch, dictator, or national socialistic democracy or any other force that would oppress its neighbor.
    This nation, the USA, was born in the Spirit of True, Pure Liberty granted to the Individual by the Creator, A "new creature" born in a sea of oppressive nations, with which God has an issue. 13 attributes of 3 liberties , the sweet influences of Pleiades to loose the bands of Orion. The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. Remembering the Bible (KJB) is the Rock upon which the Republic rest. A "Rock of offence" to all people and nations, who would oppress their people. for they stumbled and continue to stumble at that Stumblingstone. This Pure liberty has been under siege for more than 150 years by an "occupying statist theocracy" as Mike, Norwalk always clearly states.

    I know of no other nation on Earth that has chartered its servant government based on the natural-born and inherent 'rights' of the People. It is what separates the American citizen from the citizens of the UK, Europe, Central & South America, Asia, Middle East, etc.. Every effort is being made to adopt the centralized authoritarian practices of monarchies, dictatorships, and theocracies, in order to paint over the very foundation of the political and civil powers of Americans, which can never be voted away.

    The sovereignty movement is making a resurgence, not just in America, but with Britain's exit, and other European nations eschewing the dictates of the EU. Latin American countries are trying to break free from the socialist infiltration of their governments, to return to a market-based economy, and other republican ideals. The 'worker' has been getting screwed for a LONG time by communists promising the wealth of others, only to be enslaved by another dictator that rewrites the Constitution. Self-determination is becoming a clarion call around the world for the common people.
