Given the incredible array of different “liberty movement” groups active in these States united one of our greatest challenges lies in finding where to invest our scarce resources of energy, focus and time.
Which people are the most aligned with The Constitution?
How will the leadership of any group deliver on their promises and follow We The People’s political will?
All valid concerns, all needed questions….
If you’re a 9-12er, Campaign for Liberty devotee, a member of Young Americans for Liberty or other liberty groups, I believe you will get a significant return on your investment by considering the research of Mr. Clyde Cleveland and the movement to form “de jure” County Grand Juries while working to enforce and return to a “bottom-up government.”
You don’t need to be an engineer to know that the world is upside down right now; medicine destroys our health, religion destroys our spirituality, police destroy our law–despite having many great doctors, priests and police officers in the world.
This inversion extends all the way to the current state of being for our County, State and Federal governments. The Founders carefully, cautiously, and consciously hand-crafted every letter of Our Constitution to empower the local governments and We The People while restricting the federal government’s natural tendency to siphon power from We The People and rule by force rather than law.
In their brilliance, they outlined the need, power and Lawful superiority of the County Grand Juries that were supposed to delegate orders from The People, to the County, to the State, and finally on down to the errand boys at the federal level. Combined with a world-class military defense (NOT offense) this was an incredible formula that created more prosperity, production and peaceful happiness than the world had ever known.
But now we have a federal government than forcefully trumps State Law, a Federal Reserve that has helped create a $14.5T national debt, and a military that seeks to police the world bombing for peace while our people lose their homes, sanity and peace.
We stand with our backs at the edge of a great waterfall; with our heels past the point of no return and our toes ready to spring to action if only we could see the rocks before us that we could hop across to safe shores.
This my brothers and sisters, appears to be one of the rocks, and a powerful tool to supplement our collective efforts—no matter what groups we current ally with.

How many of us remember Thomas Paine?
What can we recall from his most famous work, Common Sense?
Why did President John Adams praise his contribution to America with, “I know not whether any man in the world has had more influence on its inhabitants or affairs for the last thirty years than Tom Paine.”
When The American Revolution began, most of the delegates in the colonies actually wanted to re-join England and swear their allegiance to the Crown. So many in fact that Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were afraid to call them together out of fear that they would be voted into a surrender to England!
Then Common Sense was published.
First 50,000 copies were sold, then 100,000, then 200,000; soon 500,000 copies were sold and distributed in a country of only 3 million people (Paine also donated all money to Washington’s army). Nearly every person in The Colonies read the book and had their perspective reinvented, their souls set ablaze, and their courage fortified by the simple yet unassailable wisdom of Thomas Paine’s thesis: Britain has no right to rule over us; by Natural Law, Americans have the right to rule themselves and do what they choose with their God-given liberties.
With a similar thought in mind, author Clyde Cleveland has taken us back to our revolutionary roots with “Common Sense; Revisited” and presents solutions to the problems of today with the incredible wisdom, inspired logic, and profound simplicity of the past.
Next Wednesday, May 25th at 6:30 in Naples, FL Mr. Cleveland will be hosting a live speaking event at Food and Thought and provide Constitutional solutions to the problems of today with the earth-shaking power of our Founder’s vision, passion, and clarity producing ACTION and RESULTS—not just conjecture and philosophy. This is must-see, must-do stuff.
The below video is a concentrated promotional version of a 1 hour conversation between Clyde and myself delving into these issues (full version posted shortly). If you are in SW Florida, please reach out to anyone you’d like; left, right and center—every ideology can appreciate our Natural Rights to freedom, liberty, and justice.
Here’s one from my buddy Bruce Ray Riggs at DirtyUnlceSam.com. He’s a backwoods Florida boy that can quote Black’s Law Dictionary, The Constitution, The Magna Carta and The Bible with stunning depth, accuracy and scale. You gotta like guys like that.
The capitalization is intentional. All corporations must print their names in all CAPS, it is the law–just look at any legal documents, your birth certificate or your tax bill.
Proponents of this idea (right or wrong I’m not sure yet but I like listening to them) advocate the “strawman theory” that extolls the belief that your birth certificate, driver’s license and tax bill (among others) are printed in CAPS because they are actually charged to your corporate, “strawman” entity that was put up as collateral after The United States bankruptcy in 1933 (see the below video).
Why aren’t they addressed to you in Normal Capitalization? Because—if these researchers are correct—the current de facto government doesn’t have jurisdiction over You; they have it over YOU. I realize this seems like lunacy and maybe I’m wrong; I often am.
However if it is true and we can remedy this situation by “re-inhabiting” the de jure Republic that predates this corporate entity and has higher Lawful standing, return to the supreme Common Law without income or property taxes (just a couple among hundreds of money-saving benefits) and massively shrink the leviathan of modern government we will unleash a wave of prosperity that the world has never before seen.
Just close your eyes, sit up straight and visualize what life would be like for you and your family if you could eliminate those expenses and devote the money to starting a new business, eliminating your debt or getting trained in a new profession…
If you’re scared that we will bankrupt the country (again) by doing this, check into The Grace Commission report created during President Reagan’s time in office.
Here’s an excerpt from their findings: “100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt… all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.”
Here’s Ron Paul’s brother Wayne talking about some of this stuff—a very thought-provoking video from a man who should have some real credibility. If it’s interesting, stay tuned.
If you’re in Southwest Florida jump on the contact page and I’ll send you more details.
For the last few months I have become moderately obsessed with seemingly paradigm-shifting research into allegations that America actually has two governments; one is a corporate “de facto” LEGAL government that came into power after America’s bankruptcy at the end of the civil war; and the other is the true, LAWFUL (much different than legal), “de jure” Constitutional government that our Founding Fathers gifted to us by revolution, fortified in The Declaration of Independence and detailed by The Constitution.
“So what” you ask?
IF true, this is vital, critical and must-know for a number of reasons:
1) The income tax may have been illegitimately passed into law and under examination is clearly un-Constitutional. If the people promoting “the de jure republic” are successful then we can form lawful grand juries within the “de jure government” and nullify the income tax so that we no longer pay it! How about you getting an instant 30-50% raise this year?! If you think the government will go broke check out President Regan’s Grace Commission Report on income taxes that showed all collected income taxes go to pay interest on international bankers loans–none is used for schools, roads or hospitals…
2) Property taxes: if you own your land, why do you pay property taxes?! This organization claims to have found the laws that detail why you actually DON’T own your property and how the government is able to extort taxes from you illegally. Within the “de jure” republic, there will be no property taxes and you will lawfully OWN your property–more detail on this soon.
3) There aren’t many logical arguments that can made to prove that America is NOT in a serious debt and currency crisis. It is possible that America’s debt payments might soon be so high that they will be impossible to pay we will be in default–this could be disastrous. Within “the de jure republic” there will be a new currency backed by commodities that can’t be manipulated by central bankers–if legitimate, this is MASSIVE. Mr. Cleveland is on the monetary board for “the republic” and will provide more detail on this in the near future.
All of these benefits and many more are LAWFUL according to The Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Let’s remember that little phrase in The Declaration of Independence that says, “[when the government becomes destructive] it is the Right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government.”
If this seems too strange to understand, treasonous or fascinating, please take the time to listen to the author of “Common Sense; Revisited,” Mr. Clyde Cleveland and his presentation into this incredible realm of knowledge.
