The Correct Perspective

Perspective is simply the way or point of view from which we look at something.
There are two primary competing ideas about how to view government.
• One claims government is so complex that a person must rely upon countless writing and even more advisors; and hope to get it correct. This perspective claims that The Declaration & The Constitution are outdated. They are old dead paper. They do not address our modern issues or technology. This, usually, is presented by government officers, after they are sworn into office to support and defend The Constitution. As such; this allows the very people in government, who are supposed to be bound by the terms of those document-contracts, to do anything they damned well please.
• The other claims that government is as simple as running a business.
For this work, we focus on the business perspective for government. We start with four definitions from a digitized version of a 1756 dictionary. The words reviewed are: corporate & corporation, government, community, and politicks.
United in a body or community.
A body politick, authorized to have a common seal, one head officer or more, able by their common consent, to grant or receive in law, any thing within the compass of their charter: even as one man.
1. The commonwealth; the body politick.
2. Common possession.
The science of government; the art or practice of administring publick affairs.
1. Form of Community with respect to the disposition of the supreme authority.
2. An establishment of legal authority.
3. Administration of publick affairs.
Corporations are a form of community and political bodies.
The Community, also a political body, simply deals with the community's common possessions.
These Political bodies deal with the practice or the science of government and the handling of public affairs.
Governments, also viewed as communities, deal with public affairs as they relate to the will of the supreme authority of the community. Now, through the corporate paper-trail, we must establish who or what that possesses the supreme authority of the community.
You and I are going to start a business. We dream big. We plan on expanding to include additional owners, investors, and controllers; so we want the contracts to reflect and address these dreams.
Since we want clarity as more people join our business; we put our agreement on paper. This is the Founding Charter. Some of the information it contains, tells the world, in specifically or in general terms; The:
• Control mechanisms (Recall Elections)
• Voter eligibility
• Perhaps what the parties put at risk
• Amendment Processes for the Founding Charter
• among other essentials
With that clarity on paper, we put an additional agreement on paper. This is the Corporate By-Laws. This is the primary Job-Description Sheet for the Key Business Officers (CEO, CFO, etc.) Its information contains (specifically or in general terms):
• The Actual Name of The Business. This is not the identifying nomenclature for those who joined together to create the Corporation.
• Each Key Office
• Duties for each Office
• Internal Checks and Balances (hiring and firing)
• Amendment Processes for the By-Laws
• Eligibility and quorum requirements
• Internal Vote-Counting
• Perhaps what the Officers put at risk
• among other essentials
Now; all we do is work the contracts; once we know what they are.
There are two important corporate charters. The initiating charter is among the owners, financers, and controllers. The secondary charter is created by the first group and is enforced on the second group, the primary corporate officers. These are the law within that corporation. They are enforceable only upon the respective parties to them.
Keep in mind that this work focuses on the union of states on the American Continent and all levels and branches of its government. This is the nation, the country that is associated with the proper name, "The United States of America".
Names are important. Though some are strikingly similar (either in spelling and or pronunciation) we must know to which entity is being discussed.
It is easy to assume that the nation came before the states, which came before the counties, which came before the cities and towns, which came before the settlements. After all, we presently refer to a city or town incorporating into and becoming part of a state; or a state becoming part of a nation.
That which is "The United States of America" officially started with, The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America. This is the Corporate Founding Charter that details the working relationship among the owners, financers, and voting controllers —that it identifies (in paragraph two) as a body of people referred to as the governed.
The Corporate By-Laws began with The Articles of Confederation, which were later replaced by The Constitution of the United States of America. These are the contract with the key corporate officers. The By-Laws are the enforceable law over government.
General confusion sets in about who is responsible for correcting the evils within and caused by the corporation employees we call government. After all; The Constitution details various internal checks and balances to stop unjust powers. But what happens when those checks, fail?
In the typical business setting, the owners, though somewhat shielded, are ultimately responsible for what happens in the business and for what the business employees do to harm others. The owners are responsible for holding the individual employees accountable for the harm they cause, --especially when the actions causing the harm are not authorized by the By-Laws contract. We get into the importance of the not authorized claim a little later.
Who owns the government? and How are they supposed to control it?
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America is the foundation upon which The Constitution is built. Without The Declaration's authority, those constitutional elements are void —and must be repealed and not be exercised by government.
The Constitution does not replace The Declaration. They are intended to work together for securing the people's rights.
The Constitution is the framework upon which every law must hang. Without constitutional authority, that law is void —and must not be enforced by the government.
The law does not replace The Constitution. They are supposed to work together to help secure and protect the people's rights.
The Law is tyranny, despotism, and treason when The Constitution does not authorize its existence.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America outlines a couple dozen political powers that help recognize a tyranny
The Constitution of the United States of America, Article 3, Section 3 defines the two types of treason.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America is —The Plan.
That Plan was to have a very well-informed population regarding how to control government.
Government was to very strictly limited —but powerful enough to do its Constitutionally authorized job.
The Practice is what the government does.
The Constitution of the United States of America is the Law over government.
The government Practice, when compared with The Declaration, has simply continued us along the 1776 style of Tyranny and Despotism —on steroids. It no longer reflects the limitations against government powers detailed in The Constitution.
The Constitution has become, in the minds of the people, The Perception as to what is happening. The Perception, by many people, is that the government is only doing what is necessary to maintain a peaceable society.
A "peaceable" society with extremely high crime rates; and government violating nearly every constitutional limitation. Government exercising nearly every characteristic that The Declaration identified as a tyranny.
We, the governed people, are intended to work together to properly control government's powers to equally protect each other's rights; in accord with our nation's pledge from 1776.
