You might be surprised to know that all of you have acquired dual citizenship – sort of.  You see, recently a new country with a new government was created in which You and I are citizens.  It just so happens this new country is coextensive with the one in which I always thought I resided, i.e., The United States of America.  This new country, which was created by the superior minds of — well. smarter people than I, because I didn’t know you could just create a new country to replace your old one anytime you like — is called The Republic for the united States of America (hereafter “The Republic”), and it has at least one former State Senator of Iowa who has joined it as a member of its new, alternative Senate:  Randi Shannon

A Republican state Senate candidate in Iowa has decided to bow out of the race and become a U.S. senator of an alternative form of government.

In a letter released Friday, Randi Shannon informs supporters of her new position as “U.S. Senator in the Republic of the United States of America.” You see, according to Shannon, the U.S. government has been acting unlawfully as the “‘official government,’ which clearly it is not!”

Actually, things may get a little dicey, since The Republic doesn’t recognize the Federal Government of United States of America. In addition, I have to assume the Federal Government is unlikely to roll over and disappear, despite the announcement by The Republic’s Founders that the Federal government and all its agencies, powers, military forces, etc., doesn’t lawfully exist, and hasn’t for a very long time, i.e., since 1871:

In concern for all of humanity, “We the People” re-inhabited our lawful de jure (meaning “by right of legal establishment”) government on March 30, 2010, by serving notice on the de facto corporation, known as the “UNITED STATES”.   (USC 28 Section 3002, No. 15(a) “United States” means a Federal Corporation.)   The United States was incorporated February 21, 1871 (16 Stat. 419, Chap. 62, 41st Congress, 3rd Session), the purpose being “an Act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia, reorganized June 8th, 1878, (20 Stat. 102, Chapter 180, 45th Congress, 2nd Session) as “an Act providing a permanent form of government for the District of Columbia” aka US Inc.  Uniform Commercial Code, UCC9-307 (h) states “Location of United States.  The United States is located in the District of Columbia.  A lawful grand jury in each of the fifty republics created a new Declaration of Independence that was lawfully served on the corporate UNITED STATES informing them that the original de jure government was restored.   We have claimed our right to exist as a free and independent people on our land, thus exercising our God-given unalienable rights as defined in our Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

On July 21, 2010 “We the People” of the de jure government proclaimed worldwide and made our “Declaration of Sovereignty for the Republic for the united States of America” to The Hague (a.k.a. the International Court of Justice), the Universal Postal Union (UPU) and the United Nations (UN).  On September 23, 2010, the first session of congress was convened by the united free Republics of the re-inhabited united States of America.  The seating of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the Republic government were successfully established.  This was completed by more   than the required two-thirds majority vote of “We the People” on the land of the independent Republics.  Delegates from more than 42 free Republics (States) attended, and officers for all three branches of our government have been officially sworn into office, lawfully electing interim President James Timothy Turner and interim Vice President Charles Eugene Wright, along with other established cabinet members with a presiding majority vote of 94% approval.  Thus, the Republic government is officially re-inhabited and staffed for the first time since 1868 by the will of “We the People”.

The de facto UNITED STATES CORPORATION was unlawfully established by the forty-first congress in 1871 by deceptive means and without proper consent from “We the People”.  The American people were placed under involuntary servitude by a “Legal” system of laws that have continually violated the “Constitution for the united States of America”, “Bill of Rights” and the “Declaration of Independence”.  The corporate constitution was changed from the original form, wherein Amendments were unlawfully added and removed without the people’s consent.  Since 1871, the abuses of this corporation upon both the international community as well as the American people are inestimable and unconscionable.  De facto Congress has repeatedly violated their Oaths of Office, fiduciary responsibilities, and in many cases, committed treasonous acts against “We the People” of the united States of America and the world.

So, according to The Republic, Barack Obama is not the “real” President of our country, just the head of some public corporation known as the United States of America (hereafter for convenience the “USA”).  And though I never had any vote in the matter, apparently our real President is someone named James Timothy Turner, duly elected by a bunch of delegates (people I also never had any say in selecting) who restored the “Real America” after it was deposed by the evil Federal Government after 1860:

The United States exists in two forms: The original United States that was in operation until 1860; a collection of sovereign Republics in the union. Under the original Constitution the States controlled the Federal Government; the Federal Government did not control the States and had very little authority.

The original United States has been usurped by a separate and different UNITED STATES formed in 1871, which only controls the District of Columbia and it’s territories, and which is actually a corporation (the UNITED STATES CORPORATION) that acts as our current government. The United States Corporation operates under Corporate/Commercial/Public Law rather than Common/Private Law.

The original Constitution was never removed; it has simply been dormant since 1871. It is still intact to this day. This fact was made clear by Supreme Court Justice Marshall Harlan (Downes v. Bidwell, 182, U.S. 244 1901) by giving the following dissenting opinion: “Two national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions; the other to be maintained by Congress outside and Independently of that Instrument.”

How could we have been so blind all these years?  The good thing is we don’t have to abide by any constitutional amendments passed after 1860, or any federal laws or Supreme Court decisions interpreting those laws.  In fact we aren’t really citizens at all!  We are each of us individual “Sovereigns.”  Now I’m not exactly sure about the specific details regarding the difference between being a “citizen” (although being a “citizen” of the USA is apparently nothing more than a corporate fiction by which you assigned all your rights and freedoms over to the USA) and a “sovereign” of the Republic (the founders of the restored Republic are a little vague on specifics) but apparently sovereigns have all sorts of cool rights and powers that citizens don’t.  Well, except that we sovereigns haven’t yet been allowed to elect or ratify the actions of the “Real Americans” who took it upon themselves to restore our nation to us from the so-called clutches of that nefarious corporation known as the USA.  Minor stuff really in the grand scheme of things.

In fact, of you’d like to read the timeline by which the Federal Government literally enslaved you by ratifying the 14th amendment in 1868, please check out The Republic’s timeline of events.  The short version?  Basically it’s all Lincoln’s fault, which I’m sure will make the people who celebrate their Confederate “heritage” mighty happy, with a heaping side of FDR (naturally), International Bankers, the UN, the World Bank and the Federal Reserve.

Now for the bad news.   If you are a “sovereign” of the Republic well, no social security or medicare for you, buckos.  Those programs were created illegally by the USA.  No agricultural or oil and gas subsidies either, I imagine, and no FDA, SEC, FBI, USDA or EEOC.  Furthermore, you can forget about individual protections under the Civil Rights Laws, Anti-Discrimination laws, Health Care Reform, or the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Federal Highway Program, etc., to name but a few illegally authorized entities, laws and government programs put in place by the USA.  I’m willing to bet the military has to go as well, to be replaced by well regulated militias pursuant to the Second Amendment.  Maybe  we could hold a giant going out of business sale for all those unlawfully produced weapons systems.  Sure, we won’t get all our money back thanks to cost overruns, but I’;m sure we could make a few hundred million dollars off the sale of our aircraft carriers and nuclear weapons alone.  Heck we could even televise it and sell the rights to the networks as the world’s biggest reality show – something along the line of Auction Kings but bigger and better.

Now, I suppose some of you might think this is just a satirical parody site such as The Onion, but cross my heart and hope to die, it’s all perfectly true.  Frankly, I believe we ought to promote the heck out of these folks and encourage like minded people to join The Republic, because if the “USA” isn’t real, why then no god-fearing libertarian “sovereign” should participate in federal elections.  I mean, if they believe all this crap, what difference does it matter to them if Mitt “the Outsourcer” Romney or Barack “the Not Born in the USA” Obama is elected President of the Federal Government?

It would make a great DGOVP (“Don’t Get Out the Vote Program”).  I can see the ad campaign now, can’t you?  “Support the Real America! Boycott The Election!”

A boy can dream can’t he?
