Can socialism be constitutional in the United States?

Originally answered by Steven Miller February 26, 2019

The Executive Branch of government administers the laws, yet many Presidents, quoted below, could not find anything in the U.S. Constitution to allow socialism or any kind of welfare for individuals.

Your Constitution was ratified under the assurance that it would never be interpreted to provide welfare to individuals. To counter those rumors that the “general welfare” clause in the proposed Constitution would authorize any kind of welfare, James Madison, in Federalist Paper #41, explained its clear intent. He stated that it “is an absurdity” to claim that the General Welfare clause confounds or misleads, because this introductory clause is followed by enumeration of specific particulars that explain and qualify the meaning of phrase “general welfare”.

In 1792 congressman and future President James Madison voted against a congressional appropriation to assist war refugees who had fled to America. He said:

“I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”

This was still true when Congressman Davy Crockett made his famous “it is not yours to give” speech. It is not their money to give, not even for disaster relief in a federal territory.

In the 1891 naturalization case of Mr. Sauer, Title 81 Federal Reporter page 358, the federal court held that Mr. Sauer, although an industrious, law abiding man, could not become a citizen because he claimed to be a Socialist. That’s right. SOCIALISTS CAN NOT BECOME U.S. CITIZENS.

President Franklin Pierce in 1854 vetoed a health care bill to help the mentally ill. His veto said:

“I cannot find any authority in the Constitution for public charity…. [this] would be contrary to the letter and the spirit of the Constitution and subversive to the whole theory upon which the Union of these States is founded.”

Abraham Lincoln, September 11, 1858:

“Accustomed to trampling on the rights of others you have lost the genius of your own independence and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises among you.”

Abraham Lincoln, second Inaugural Address in 1865, which was after the Emancipation Proclamation:

“It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces …”

Grover Cleveland’s veto of government pensions, June 21, 1886:

“… encourages those who for gain urge honest men to become dishonest. This is the demoralizing lesson taught [to]the people … against the public Treasury …”

1897 President Grover Cleveland vetoed an appropriation to provide disaster aid to victims of a Texas drought. His veto stated:

“I feel obliged to withhold my approval of the plan to indulge in benevolent and charitable sentiment through the appropriation of public funds… I find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution. The lesson should be constantly enforced that though the people should support the government, the government should not support the people.”

Footnote: 1897 was 2 years after the Supreme Court ruled that income tax was unconstitutional in Pollock v. Farmer’s Loan Co. (157 US 429, 158 U.S. 601)

Teddy Roosevelt speech to the New York City Chamber of Commerce November 11, 1902:

“the traditional American self-reliance of spirit which makes them scorn to ask from the government, whether of State or of Nation, anything but a fair field and no favor; who confide not in being helped by others, but in their own skill, energy, and business capacity to achieve success. The first requisite of a good citizen in this Republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his weight that he shall not be a mere passenger, but shall do his share in the work that each generation of us finds ready to hand; and, furthermore, that in doing his work he shall show not only the capacity for sturdy self-help but also self-respecting regard for the rights of others.”

Do police and prosecutors lie to courts in order to convict the innocent?

Every week you read about some poor convict that is exonerated after decades in prison for a crime that never happened. Yet the judges never blame the systemic rituals they are involved in.

Prepare for the future.

Everyone can sense the upcoming chaos, civil war, the forced vaccines, food shortages AND the mandatory proof of immunity that eventually becomes permission to buy or sell. And the upcoming martial law. And it is not going to help when police lie to courts.

Did you know also, that perilous times shall come? (Second Timothy 3:1) Christians face persecutions, arrest, prison, appear before authorities for Christ name’s sake.  Delivered up to be afflicted.  Delivered up to counsels.  Testify to authorities. (Luke 21:12-15, Matthew 24:9, Mark 13:9,11). Yet we find ourselves completely dependent on those who control the foundations* that you rely on. This is the very definition of Stockholm Syndrome.  You will need to join a like-minded community to provide the social welfare foundations of your own making, without reliance on the powers that be. Just like the early Christians had to live in caves to avoid being fed to lions in the Colosseum.
* Jobs, food, healthcare, energy, banking, justice, education, travel. All these are controlled by regulations that the Powers That Be justify by their “requirement” for safety.

But safety is not our heritage.  Here is a Ben Franklin quote inscribed on a plaque in the stairwell of the Statute of Liberty:

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

What can be done to delay the injustice? Answer: learn to stand up to government bullies. Learn how to impeach a witness when they lie to courts.

Freedom is not Free.

It requires action and risk. You must stand up to bullies who will take it from you. Letters to congressmen and public protests alone can never restore Liberty and Justice for ALL.

It was never the purpose of government to deny freedom to 80% of Americans who cannot afford a lawyer.

Learn how to stand up to tyrants (even judges).

An online law course developed by a lawyer. Learn enough legal procedure to win your case. It has helped me. It might be your get out of jail card. Take a tour of the course.

Liberty is what we seek.

•Liberty to run a business.
•Liberty to enjoy life.
•and even Liberty to take our own risks and suffer the consequences.

Sadly, there is no liberty or justice for ALL. The deep-state lawyers have infiltrated all branches of government so that “ALL” do not get Justice in America.

Liberty without Justice is impossible. Justice is a sacred right. Justice should not be a business.

Take the “justice business” away from lawyers once and for all. Open the courthouse doors to EVERYONE.

If you are an unfortunate victim of government overreach, I recommend an online law course. I used what I’ve learned to stop a $60,000 lawsuit by a lawyer — with a “flurry of paperwork” that exposed his lies.

Take a tour of the online law course. While you are there, look up a few legal terms, then click on the Main Menu tab at the left.

COVID-19 is a mild disease.

Here is CDC proof that COVID-19 is a mild disease.

The Washington Post says that Forty percent of people with coronavirus infections have no symptoms.
And we know that these asymptomatic carriers have ZERO chance of spreading the disease. See NIH study linked later in this article.

Senator Scott Jensen, MD interview explains away the high COVID-19 death statistics.

The COVID-19 overall hospitalization case fatality rate is 00.4% (according to last week’s CDC best estimate was published at — BUT they changed their report yesterday (7-10-2020) to eliminate their reporting of the case fatality data because, according to them, there are too many people testing positive who had no symptoms at all.

” estimates of case fatality ratios must account for numerous biases, including high numbers of asymptomatic cases, under-reporting of symptomatic cases, under-reporting of COVID-19 associated deaths, and the delay between case reporting and death reporting.  There is also likely regional variability in testing practices, reported incidence, and outcomes of interest, further confounding estimates. In this update, we have replaced the Symptomatic Case Fatality Ratio and the Symptomatic Case Hospitalization Ratio with the Infection Fatality Ratio (IFR), which takes into account both symptomatic and asymptomatic cases”.


My three comments:

  • this means they now have to guess how many cases were not reported. 
  • The wording “Case Fatality Ratio” is contrary to their standard for reporting seasonal flu statistics. (here). It now seems to switch between reported cases, hospitalizations and positive tests. And they are hiding the accuracy of the tests. I could not find out the percentage of false positives or even which test standard they are now using.
  • I also suspect that the death rate is getting too low to support the dem-panic.

By the way, the COVID-19 case fatality rate of 00.4% is much lower than the normal seasonal flu. And extremely lower than the Obama H1N1 non-pandemic of 2010-2011 which was 12.7% (source) — that did not get one peep from the fake news industry demanding we destroy the economy nor create millions of unemployed.

source:  Washington Post


There are many people who test positive that never develop any symptoms. The CDC says that “a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms” Source:

And a study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on their government website link: says that there is ZERO chance of spreading the disease — out of the 455 individuals (hospital staff, family members, patients) in close contact for several days with positive tested carriers.

 It has become obvious to me that the deep-state infiltrators want to advance the next steps to their one-world government control of everyone. Forced vaccines, contact tracing. Mandatory ID* “proof of immunity”. There is now talk of $1,200 per day fines for refusing to cooperate with contact tracers. California has hired 20,000 contact tracers to track your every movement. And now there are rumors that their vaccines cause infertility and will genetically modify you.


but you already knew that.

U.S. healthcare kills their patients.

Perhaps we should pay attention. But not to those criminals who profit from vaccines.

The CDC promotes pharmaceutical company profits

CDC executives invest in the pharmaceutical companies. They have a conflict of interest. (the very definition of corruption) They profit from misery.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was issued U.S. Patent 7,776,521 in 2003 entitled “Coronavirus isolated from humans”. But they let the patent expire. So now anyone can develop a test kit.

The patent application (U.S. patent Application Number US46592703P) included:

  • A method of detecting a severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) in a sample…; and,
  • A kit for detecting a severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) in a sample…,

My search for the truth

I’m not a doctor, this is not medical advice. This is what I have seen:

  • Ventilators kill patients. CPAP with oxygen does not — even though the fake news says otherwise. 
  • Hydroxychloroquine with zinc cures people (except in the U.S. where the deep-state infiltrators developed studies that had massive overdoses to kill some test subjects — and the study didn’t even include zinc).
  • NY Post article stating that Hydroxychloroquine was rated the most effective treatment.
  • Fauci specialized in Virology. Fifteen years ago he was the director of the National Institutes of Health. He was aware of a study published in the August 22, 2005 Virology Journal entitled “Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread” (link).
  • Even high doses of Vitamin C have helped. (1000 mg every 4 hours).
  • Inhaled corticosteroids ($200 of budesonide for the full course, in a $40 nebulizer) cure people. It is so safe that respiratory distressed babies are treated with it. See
  • A review of 41 studies published worldwide shows that Hydroxychloroquine is effective

7/21/2020 UPDATE: 

A study from England published in Principia Scientific shows that all the alarmist presumptions that created the frantic demand for political intervention to slow the spread of COVID-19 were wrong. “It is very strongly implied that the interventions made no impact”.  That’s right.  Political forced lockdown DID NOTHING to flatten the curve.  Link:

Another study published by Lancet of 50 countries’ data for COVID-19 caseloads entitled “A country level analysis measuring the impact of government actions, country preparedness and socioeconomic factors on COVID-19 mortality and related health outcomes” determined:

“Rapid border closures, full lockdowns, and wide-spread testing were not associated with COVID-19 mortality per million people.”

“… in our analysis, full lockdowns and wide-spread COVID-19 testing were not associated with reductions in the number of critical cases or overall mortality”

* Mandatory ID? Now that everybody is accustomed to wearing a mask in order to buy or sell, the next step is proof of immunity. This will become what Bill Gates already stated “a digital proof of immunity”. Take heed that no man deceives you by any means.

ICONOCLAS’TICadjective Breaking images.

Webster’s Dictionary, first edition

There are people who want to tear down our history.

Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Statue

Abraham Lincoln’s emancipation statue was entirely paid by freed slaves. It was unveiled in 1876 for a dedication speech by Frederick Douglass. It depicts a freed slave, portrayed by Archer Alexander, kneeling before Lincoln, when Lincoln told him “Don’t kneel to me. That is not right. You must kneel to God only and thank him for the liberty you will hereafter enjoy.”

And now we are faced with an unreasoning mob who demands that we tear down this statue. They refuse to have a conversation.

Teddy Roosevelt’s Statue

And now they want to tear down Teddy Roosevelt’s statue.
In 1901 Republican President Theodore Roosevelt invited his adviser, the African American spokesman Booker T. Washington, to dine with him and his family at the White House, which provoked condemnation from southern Democrats and the press.
The Democrat controlled press published a poem about it. First published in the Missouri Democratic Leader.

Most slaves were white

The history that iconoclasts want to totally obliterate is the fact that most slaves were white.
Instead of explaining that all races shared in the horrors of slavery — which would bring us together, the fake news industry wants to agitate and divide.
These same people openly embrace Muslims where slavery flourishes as an important part of their culture. Yet not one peep from the fake news industry.
And they also ignore that the 1840 U.S. Census proves that 29% of free blacks owned slaves. Yet U.S. never had more than 1½% of whites owning slaves.
The very meaning of the word slave refers to white slaves.

Can a face mask stop a virus?

A face mask cannot possibly stop a coronavirus.

Established science published by the Journal of the American Medical Association proves that facemasks should NOT be worn by healthy individuals

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on April 1, 2020 states:

“wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.”

New England Journal of Medicine April 1, 2020 issue, Study entitled Universal Masking in Hospitals in the Covid-19 Era link:

Then two months later the doctors who reported their study suddenly backtrack and write a letter to the editor published on June 3, 2020 at

“the intent of our article was to push for more masking, not less. It is apparent that many people with SARS-CoV-2 infection are asymptomatic or presymptomatic yet highly contagious and that these people account for a substantial fraction of all transmissions.”

New England Journal of Medicine June 3, 2020 Letter to the Editor. link:

Why is their retraction contrary to the known science published by the National Institutes of Health that asymptomatic individuals have ZERO chance of spreading the disease?
study published by the National Institutes of Health on their government website link: says that there is ZERO chance of spreading the disease — out of the 455 individuals (hospital staff, family members, patients) in close contact for several days with positive tested carriers.

Size of the Coronavirus is too small to be filtered

According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine

“Electron micrographs of negative-stained 2019-nCoV particles were generally spherical with some pleomorphism. Diameter varied from about 60 to 140 nm. Virus particles had quite distinctive spikes, about 9 to 12 nm, and gave virions the appearance of a solar corona.”

A nanometer is one-thousandths of a micrometer (mm, also called micron). A virus diameter of 60 to 140 nanometers is a diameter of 0.060 to 0.140 micrometer.

Filter capability of N95 surgical mask

A N95 Surgical Mask is a mask manufactured to meet the NIOSH part 84 regulation N95. This government regulation requires the mask to filter out 95% of particles that are larger than 0.3 micrometers (0.300 microns). It will let through 5% of particles greater than 0.300 microns.

In other words, N95 mask will NOT filter out five side-by-side coronavirus, Nor 5% of larger particles that it is not required to filter out. Plus whatever gets in around the mask — and this is for government regulated surgical masks, not for cloth masks.  

Cloth masks are just for virtue signaling politicians.

You may also be interested in my post that proves Asymptomatic coronavirus carriers have ZERO risk of spreading the virus.

Are coronavirus asymptomatic individuals contagious?

Someone is lying. The CDC says that a significant portion of COVID positive individuals have no symptoms at all — but we should still wear cloth face masks. The National Institutes of Health says Coronavirus is too small to be filtered by a government regulated N95 surgical mask.

“CDC continues to study the spread and effects of the novel coronavirus across the United States.  We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms.  This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms.  In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.”

Do they lie?

Another government publication says asymptomatic individuals do not spread the disease.
The National Institutes of Health study (Link) of 455 individuals consisted of patients, hospital staff and family members. These individuals were in contact with asymptomatic virus carriers for a median contact time of 4 days for patients and 5 days for family members — resulting in NO COVID-19 infections.

That’s right. Asymptomatic coronavirus carriers have ZERO risk of spreading the virus.

Do not be fooled by virtue signaling wackos who wear masks.

What does this mean to you?

It means that the government contact tracing is about setting you up for future control of who you associate with, so they can control you (and eventually arrest you for sedition and send you to reeducation camps). Just like the Nazi programs in WW2 Europe. Just in California, they already hired 20,000 contact tracers to hunt you down.

Will the COVID vaccine genetically modify you?

Up until now vaccines were made with inactivated virus, or fragments of the virus that cannot replicate. The proposed COVID vaccines being tested are man-made (synthetic) with a circular RNA strand attached to a genome. An RNA vaccine has never been developed before. What could possibly go wrong?

Fact check the Fact Checkers

There are claims that the new vaccine will genetically modify you. But Reuters fact checkers say they don’t. Read John Rappoport’s rebuttal

1917 goal of vaccine against spirituality

In 1917 Rudolf Steiner predicted a technology that would immunize children against spirituality.

A Future Vaccine to Prevent Knowledge of Soul and Spirit
Reprinted from The Fall of the Spirits of Darkness (Bristol: Rudolf Steiner Press, 1993; GA 177), p. 85. October 7, 1917:

85 –“The time will come –and it may not be far off –when quite different tendencies will come up at a congress like the one held in 1912 and people will say: It is pathological for people to even think in terms of spirit and soul. ‘Sound’ people will speak of nothing but the body. It will be considered a sign of illness for anyone to arrive at the idea of any such thing as a spirit or a soul. People who think like that will be considered to be sick and –you can be quite sure of it –a medicine will be found for this. . . . The soul will be made non-existent with the aid of a drug. Taking a ‘sound point of view,’ people will invent a vaccine to influence the organism as early as possible, preferably as soon as it is born, so that this human body never even gets the idea that there is a soul and spirit.“. . . the heirs of modern materialism will look for the vaccine to make the body ‘healthy,’ that is, make its constitution such that this body no longer talks of such rubbish as soul and spirit, but takes a ‘sound’ view of the forces which live in engines and in chemistry and let planets and suns arise from nebulae in the cosmos. Materialistic physicians will be asked to drive the souls out of humanity.”October 27, 1917199-200 –“. . . the spirits of darkness are now among us. . . .“. . . I have told you that the spirits of darkness are going to inspire their human hosts, in whom they will be dwelling, to find a vaccine that will drive all inclination toward spirituality out of people’s souls when they are still very young, and this will happen in a roundabout way through the living body. Today, bodies are vaccinated against one thing and another; in future, children will be vaccinated with a substance which it will certainly be possible to produce, and this will make them immune, so that they do not develop foolish inclinations connected with spiritual life –‘foolish’ here, or course, in the eyes of materialists.. . .“. . . a way will finally be found to vaccinate bodies so that these bodies will not allow the inclination toward spiritual ideas to develop and all their lives people will believe only in the physical world they perceive with the senses. Out of impulses which the medical profession gained from presumption –oh, I beg your pardon, from the consumption [tuberculosis] they themselves suffered –people are now vaccinated against consumption, and in the same way they will be vaccinated against any inclination toward spirituality. This is merely to give you a particularly striking example of many things which will come in the near and more distant future in this field –the aim being to bring confusion into the impulses which want to stream down to earth after the victory of the [Michaelic] spirits of light [in 1879].

When must a Christian obey government?

This question has been asked for two millennia. Christians once risked persecution to NOT obey government. But many people today read their Bible and conclude that people must obey government.

Many commentaries exist on this topic, so I was reluctant to add my comments. But since you are reading this I’ll assume that you want my in-depth perspective. Here it is.

John Locke’s First Treatise of Government finally proved that Kings DO NOT rule by divine authority. I have may posts that explain how obedience to higher authority was passed down to us today as the received-law-of-the-land in America as “the laws of Nature and Nature’s God” mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. The law textbooks of the 1770s tell us that the divine laws of nature are binding over all the globe at all times…

“… no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this: and such of them as are valid derive all their force, and all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original..[divine law of nature] … Neither could any other law possibly exist; … for we are all equal, without any other superior but him who is the author of our being.”

Romans 13:1

Romans 13:1 is most often misconstrued.  It is the Apostle Paul’s definition of legitimate authority.  The higher powers are the only legitimate authority.

Here is the King James translation of Romans 31:1:

Let every soul be subject to the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

This is a definition of authority.  As you can see, it is not a statement that everyone is subject to counterfeit authority — in fact, verse 3 tells us that legitimate rulers are not a terror to good works.   The same Paul who wrote Romans 13 also said he would not be subject to the power of any — First Corinthians 6.    Did the same Peter who told us to obey God not men in Acts 5:29 suddenly change his mind when he told us in First Peter 2:13-16 to submit to every ordinance of man?

First Peter 2:13-16

“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.  For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:  As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.”

Notice that this advice to obey government is because it is “will of God…to silence the ignorance of foolish men”.  In other words: don’t flaunt your new liberty or attract attention.
I wrote this website to silence the ignorance of foolish men. People are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Titus 3:1

Titus 3:1 (KJV)
“Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,”
The King James translators added the word “magistrates”.  There is no such word in the original. The KJV is a government published Bible, published by the same government that executed prior translators.
The Pilgrims fled from King James in to bring forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in religious liberty.
Geneva Bible of 1599:
He willeth that all generally be put in mind to reverence such as be in authority:
How could Wycliffe conclude that the Bible established a government by the people, of the people and for the people if we were to obey government magistrates?
How could the same author of Titus 3 also tell us in First Corinthians 6:12 that he would not be brought under the power of any man?
After all, Obeying false authority is mutiny against God.
The American King James Version left off the obey man part of this, and we are left with the higher divine powers:
“Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
Titus 3:1 original Greek sentence structure, according to the Interlinear translation published by Baker:
“Put in remembrance them to rulers and to authorities to be subject, to be obedient, to every work good ready to be,”
Perhaps we should be reminding rulers and authorities to be subject and obedient to every good work.
Tyndale’s 1534 translation could very well have these unstated meanings which I added in parentheses:
“Warn them that [if] they submit themselves to rule and power, [they must] obey the officers, that [otherwise] they would be ready unto all good works,”

Hebrews 13:17

Hebrews 13:17 (KJV) tells us:

“Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.”
Christians should obey legitimate authority.  The kind of authority that “is not a terror to good works, but to the evil”  By the way, Tyndale translation says “rulers are not to be feared for good works, but for evil”.  No law or court has ever required you to get a Social Security Number or file a 1040 form.  You did this voluntarily.
“But the culture has failed, almost entirely, in inculcating internal controls on actions that have their origin in authority. For this reason, the latter constitutes a far greater danger to human survival.”
— Stanley Milgram.
Obedience to Authority

principalities and powers in high places

Unfortunately for us today, there are principalities and powers in high places. We were warned in Ephesians 6:12 that

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The King James Bible was published in 1611 by the government of King James. The pilgrims fled to America in 1620 to flee from the King James Bible.  They did not bring to America the Bible they were fleeing from.  They brought the Geneva Bible to America.


No form of collectivism can recognize individual rights.  Communism, Fascism, Socialism and Democracy can never recognize individual rights.
You should “obey God rather than men” as it says in Acts 5:29.  But obeying the collective is obedience to men, rather than God.

The Second Commandment:

“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD [Yhôvâh] thy God [Elohiym] am a jealous God [Elohiym]”

The collective’s choice for you is not your individual choice.

God gave us free will to act within the boundaries He set.  He wants you to be a free soul under his authority1.  He ordered us to take dominion over the earth.  Obeying man’s boundaries over your free-will makes you a submissive wimp.  The existence of the collective’s choice (to choose for you) denies that you have God given free will.  The collective will determine how much privacy you can have, how much money you can keep, how you contract for necessities of life, how much water your toilet can flush, and how to repair your back porch after you beg for a permit, and they even control when and how (or if)  you can get life-saving medical prescriptions.  How can you take dominion over the earth with the collective controlling your life?  Why they could even prevent you from buying and selling with the gold or silver coins that are the only lawful money mentioned in the Constitution, and then force you to get a banking authorization number to buy or sell.

What should you do when someone suggests that you partake in a social security scheme to plunder everyone and create one purse for all to partake?  The answer is found in Proverbs chapter 1.

Proverbs 1:  (NKJV)
:10    My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent.
:11  If they say, “Come with us, Let us lie in wait . . . Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
:14  Cast in your lot among us, Let us all have one purse”;
:15  My son, do not walk in the way with them, Keep your foot from their path;
:16  For their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed blood.
:17  Surely, in vain the net is spread In the sight of any bird;
:18  But they lie in wait for their own blood, They lurk secretly for their own lives.
:19  So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; It takes away the life of its owners.
:20  Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the open squares.
:21  She cries out in the chief concourses, At the openings of the gates in the city She speaks her words:
:22  “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, And fools hate knowledge.
:25  Because you disdained all my counsel, And would have none of my rebuke,
:26  I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes,
:28  “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
:29  Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the LORD,
:30  They would have none of my counsel And despised my every rebuke.

Liberty Bell is inscribed with Leviticus 25:10
Leviticus 25:10 Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land.

Leviticus 25:10 is inscribed on the Liberty Bell. “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto the inhabitants thereof.”

Leviticus 25:46 tells us not to rule one over the other with rigor.  This is essentially what Christ told us at the Last Supper when the disciples where arguing among themselves who would lead the church.  There is no top-down lordship, don’t rule one over the other, don’t be a benefactor.

Luke 22:25-26 (NKJV)   And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ “But not so among you; on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves.”

Americans hold the truth that we are all created equal.  Because we are.  Until we become subordinate. You voluntarily chose to be subordinate. The word LAW in old English jurisprudence signified an oath or the privilege of being sworn.  Men swear by someone greater than themselves (Hebrews 6:16), yet Americans are all created equal.  You are bound by your agreements.  YOU locked yourself into your cell. You chose your lawgiver. Your covetousness, greed and sloth led you to get and use a Social Security Number because you were incapable of planning for your old age.  You agreed to pay for the social welfare systems of the world. You shackled yourself to your chain of command. You wanted welfare provided by a system of taking from your neighbor by force, fear and violence rather than a system of giving to your neighbor by faith, hope and charity. You were faithful to unrighteous mammon, rather than righteous mammon.

A Long History of disobedience

Here is what I wrote in my Mark of the Beast book twenty years ago, It is still posted at

The Lord himself will give you strong delusion in proportion to the idols that you worship.  Ezekiel 14:4 and Second Thessalonians 2:11.  As society turns further away from the truth, the prohibition against idol worship is deemed silly.  The Holy second commandment has become folly to today’s society.

Example #1: William Tell refused to salute the hat of judge Gessler, who promptly sentenced him to death unless he could shoot an apple off his son’s head.  We would not have a Switzerland today if William Tell did not know that a salute was worship.  Yet today’s self-called Christians rise for judges, and raise their hands for judges, and swear oaths for judges, even though Christ said “swear not at all”.. Most of today’s self-called Christians would think it silly for anyone to risk martyrdom by refusing to salute a judge.   Oaths are taken to superiors according to Hebrews 6:16.  If we are all created equal, why take oaths to them?

Example # 2 “Braveheart” William Wallace chose execution rather than swear allegiance to King Edward I.  Scotland would not be a free country if Wallace had pledged allegiance.  Most of today’s self-called Christians would think it silly for anyone to risk martyrdom by refusing to pledge allegiance.  They think nothing of pledging allegiance while claiming that they live free.

Example # 3 the Anabaptists from the 1520’s – from whom we get today’s Amish, Mennonites and Baptists – chose painful execution by burning at the stake and the resulting surrender of their orphans to the state, rather than register their children with the authorities (at infant baptism).  Most of today’s self-called Christians would think it silly for anyone to risk martyrdom by refusing to register their children with the state.  They line up to hand over the state’s children to “a mere creature of the mind.”  The 1972 Supreme Court case of Wisconsin v. Yoder, 406 U.S. 205, determined that Amish “300 years of consistent practice” in raising their own children into their lifestyle was sufficient to overcome the State’s status as a father (parens patriae), therefore States’ education laws did not apply to them.  And yet today’s society thinks those silly Christians who refuse to pass their children through the fire to Molech should have their children taken from them.

Example #4: In 1637 John Lilburn risked death refusing to take a Star Chamber Oath.  In 1966, the U.S. Supreme Court acknowledged that Miranda’s famous Fifth Amendment right to remain silent perpetuates “The lofty principles to which Lilburn had appealed during his trial…” We have a fifth amendment because Lilburn risked death refusing an oath, yet most of today’s self-called Christians would think it silly for anyone to risk martyrdom by refusing to take oaths.  They knowingly sign perjury oaths on their 1040 tax forms, voter registrations, bank accounts, and job applications.

Example # 5: the Presbyterian covenanters of 1638 to 1688 endured great hardship, strife and civil wars to keep their religion.  If they had obeyed their government, the monarch would likely still be supreme over America.  Yet today’s self-called Christians claim that they must obey government even when they are commanded to sin.

You are the guardian of your own morals.  I will leave it up to you to conclude that you worship graven images.

Government is a manmade graven abstraction, “a mere creature of the mind” (1852 Supreme Court’s words, not mine).

Like Esau, you can, with an oath, sell your birthright for a bowl of stew (Genesis 25:33 – with no physical worship, just an oath).  God hated Esau according to Romans 9:13 and Malachi 1:3.  Enjoy the tranquility of servitude as you worship the imaginary hand that feeds you – (benefactors was the term that Christ used when he warned us “not so among you”) — as you “take the will of him on whom you depend” as Blackstone so eloquently explained.

The judgment day is coming.  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them.

Allegiance to graven images is mutiny against the one true God.

Christians are fed to the lions or covered with pitch and burned at the stake
Jean-Léon Gérôme The Christian Martyrs’ Last Prayer

I also wrote the following in the same book of 20 years ago:
The idea that governments are automatically bowed down to, is an idea that God prohibited in his first two commandments.
Your new world order, Novus Ordo Seclorum, New Secular Order, is the counterfeit government that the Bible warned you about.  The word secular means “without God.”  Bible believers will not automatically obey secular government.
Imagine how easy life would have been if we had obeyed secular authority.
• Daniel would not have been thrown into either the furnace nor the lions’ den.
• Moses, while he was a civil servant, would not have killed one of his government’s law enforcement officers.
• Israelites would not have rebelled against Pharaoh.
• Peter would not have escaped from prison after an angel opened his cell.
• Paul would not have left Damascus in a basket to escape Government Law enforcement officers
• Peter would not have said in Acts 5:29 “We must obey God rather than men.”
• The apostles would not have been hunted down and executed.
• Martin Luther would not have a following in England, they would have obeyed Charles V
• William Tyndale would not have been executed for translating the Bible into English. He chose not to obey government.
• Christians would not have risked death on the Mayflower’s seven week voyage to bring fourth on this continent a new nation conceived in liberty.
• A Quaker preacher named William Penn, while he was a British subject in a British Colony, would not have been arrested for preaching a Quaker sermon.
• William Tell would have saluted the judge’s authority rather than be sentenced to death unless he could shoot an apple off his son. He chose to not obey government. We would not have a Switzerland today if Mr. Tell did not know that a salute was a form of worship.
• British subjects living in British colonies would not have started the American Revolution.  They would not have risked death to kill their government’s law enforcement officers.  Patrick Henry would not have asked for liberty or death.  Nathan Hale, who was a 21 year old Yale graduate when he was executed in 1776, would not have had one death to spend for his country.
• Rahab, a career criminal who helped overthrow her government, would not be considered righteous (James 2:25) and listed in Hebrews 11 as one of the all-time faithful.
• there would have been no anti-Baptists (who became today’s Amish, Mennonites and Baptists), who refused to register their children.  Many were burned at the stake rather than obey government.
• John was tortured with boiling oil then banished to Patmos for refusing to worship Emperor Domitian.  He chose not to obey government.
• Those who refused to affirm that Caesar was lord were fed to the lions. Those who refused to worship Emperors were often executed.  They had a choice to obey.
• The Christians in Cappadocia, just east of Galatia, would not have lived in caves to evade government.  They had a choice of allegiance.  Would there have been any Galatians for Paul to write to if they had obeyed government?
• The Presbyterian covenanters of 1638 to 1688 endured great hardship, strife and civil wars to keep their religion. Scotland is free today because William Wallace chose martyrdom rather than swear allegiance to King Charles the first.
• Cromwell suspended Parliament and executed King Charles.  If they had obeyed their government, the monarch would likely still be supreme over America.
• In 1637 John Lilburn risked death refusing to take a Star Chamber Oath.    He chose to disobey government.  The U.S. Supreme Court acknowledged that Miranda’s right to remain silent came from Lilburn’s refusal.
• And today, the Church in China could exist peacefully if it registers with their government, but refuses.  Because regulation IS persecution.


First Peter 2 is quoted above. Peter is telling people not to attract attention with their new liberty from graven (manmade) laws.  After all, law is not made for the righteous — Paul told us so in First Timothy 1:9 (Paul was the one who said he would not be subject to any).  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has set us free and be not enslaved again. Galatians 5.
Peter was being rather bold in his liberty as was Paul in First Corinthians 6:12.  The same Paul who wrote that every soul should submit to higher authority (Romans 13:1) did not change his mind in First Corinthians 6:12 when he said he would not be brought under the power of any.  Both Peter and Paul were eventually executed.2 That’s right.  The same Paul who told us that rulers are not a terror to good works was executed by rulers. The obvious explanation is that Romans 13:3 refers only to legitimate rulers.  Legit rulers are ordained of God.  Just as he told us two verses earlier.

The collective is a jealous god.  They have a word for your required submission.  They call it law.  Their law is no longer subordinate to God’s Law.

There is a term for Submitting to God.  The word is Law.
The God of the Bible wants you to have free will limited only by your God-given reasoning that you are to conform to His will.  (even if you don’t love Him enough to obey all his Commandments ).  Your duty is to perform your God-given responsibilities under His authority, not under the authority of the god you have chosen (a man made graven artificial entity).  You were warned that your elected king would take, take, take until the collective wants God back into their life, but God will not answer your prayers (God honored your free-will, you got what you wanted, stop complaining). First Samuel 8:18 “And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the LORD will not hear you in that day.”
In America’s 13 original colonies there was a four volume law textbook Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Law published in 1765.
Blackstone’s Commentaries near the beginning of his seven page introduction:

“But laws, in their more confined sense, and in which it is our present business to consider them, denote the rules, not of action in general, but of human action or conduct: that is, the precepts by which man, the noblest of all sublunary beings, a creature endowed with both reason and freewill, is commanded to make use of those faculties in the general regulation of his behaviour.
Man, considered as a creature, must necessarily be subject to the laws of his creator, for he is entirely a dependent being. A being, independent of any other, has no rule to pursue, but such as he prescribes to himself; but a state of dependence will inevitably oblige the inferior to take the will of him, on whom he depends, as the rule of his conduct: not indeed in every particular, but in all those points wherein his dependence consists. This principle therefore has more or less extent and effect, in proportion as the superiority of the one and the dependence of the other is greater or less, absolute or limited. And consequently, as man depends absolutely upon his maker for every thing, it is necessary that he should in all points conform to his maker’s will.
This will of his maker is called the law of nature. For as God, when he created matter, and endued it with a principle of mobility, established certain rules for the perpetual direction of that motion; so, when he created man, and endued him with freewill to conduct himself in all parts of life, he laid down certain immutable laws of human nature, whereby that freewill is in some degree regulated and restrained, and gave him also the faculty of reason to discover the purport of those laws.
Considering the creator only as a being of infinite power, he was able unquestionably to have prescribed whatever laws he pleased to his creature, man, however unjust or severe. But as he is also a being of infinite wisdom, he has laid down only such laws as were founded in those relations of justice, that existed in the nature of things antecedent to any positive precept. These are the eternal, immutable laws of good and evil, to which the creator himself in all his dispensations conforms; and which he has enabled human reason to discover, so far as they are necessary for the conduct of human actions. Such among others are these principles: that we should live honestly, should hurt nobody, and should render to every one his due; to which three general precepts Justinian has reduced the whole doctrine of law.”

Christians will be persecuted.  All apostles except one were eventually executed.  They considered their persecution to be joy.  Matthew 5:12 says rejoice and be exceedingly glad.  It should be so with all Christians.  Get used to it.
Those who obey the collective “to silence the ignorance of foolish men” are navigating their course around a storm created by a jealous lord (the collective).
Christianity, even prior to the sun worshipers claiming to be Christians, was not easy.  CHRISTIANS EVADED THE CIVIL AUTHORITIES.  Many ended up living in caves to avoid the civil authorities.
Today is much the same.
Emperor Decius from 249 to 251AD commanded worship from everyone.  Those who refused to acknowledge this lordship went to their deaths.  Protesters who wanted to live were allowed to burn a little incense.
Just prior to the year 200, Tertulillan wrote in Chapter XXIV of his book “Ante-Nicene Fathers”:

Amid these reefs and inlets, amid these shallows and straits of idolatry, Faith, her sails filled by the Spirit of God, navigates; safe if cautious, secure if intently watchful. But to such as are washed overboard is a deep whence is no out-swimming; to such as are run aground is inextricable shipwreck; to such as are engulfed in a whirlpool, where there is no breathing-even in idolatry. All waves thereof whatsoever suffocate; every eddy thereof sucks down unto Hades. Let no one say, “Who will so safely foreguard himself? We shall have to go out of the world!” [First Corinthians 5:10] As if it were not as well worth while to go out, as to stand in the world as an idolater! Nothing can be easier than caution against idolatry, if the fear of it be our leading fear; any “necessity” whatever is too trifling compared to such a peril. The reason why the Holy Spirit did, when the apostles at that time were consulting, relax the bond and yoke for us, was that we might be free to devote ourselves to the shunning of idolatry. This shall be our Law, the more fully to be administered the more ready it is to hand; (a Law) peculiar to Christians, by means whereof we are recognized and examined by heathens. This Law must be set before such as approach unto the Faith, and inculcated on such as are entering it; that, in approaching, they may deliberate; observing it, may persevere; not observing it, may renounce their name. We will see to it, if, after the type of the Ark, there shall be in the Church raven, kite, dog, and serpent. At all events, an idolater is not found in the type of the Ark: no animal has been fashioned to represent an idolater. Let not that be in the Church which was not in the Ark.

That was true Christianity.  These sheep knew their master’s voice.  The first two Commandments prohibit bowing to other gods.  Today’s pagans remain clueless.  (their hearts have been darkened.  Romans 1:21, Romans 11:8-10, Ephesians  4:18). Today’s pagans will bow down (salute) graven idols that their ancestors created. (black robed priests, colored fabric or artificial entities).  They actually think that it is mandatory to sign perjury oaths to graven images.  Do you smell incense?
