America?s Royal Family
by Albert Lynn Barcroft
Most of us understand the general concept of the Royal Family of England from our high school and college history classes. There, the members of the Royal Family are the ?sovereigns?. As we have already discussed, that means that they are the only people who can own land (or anything else). What you may not know is that in virtually every country in the world, there exists a ?sovereign class? similar to the British Royal Family. In every case, the sovereign people of the culture got their sovereignty in one of only two ways. Most were born to it, meaning it was part of the birthright pasted to them from their parents. The others took it through war or insurrection. There are no other ways to obtain sovereignty. Nobody gives it away freely.
To better understand sovereignty, imagine that you move your family to England today, and you and your family live in England for the rest of your lives. Then your children?s children, and their children, continue to live there. How long will it be before your family becomes part of the Royal Family? What form or application would you have to fill out to be granted entry into the Royal Family? What test would you have to take in order to gain entry? The answer: there is no form, application or test for entry into the Royal Family. They are not looking for new members.
So, how do you become a member of the Royal Family? The answer is simple ? you don?t. Even if you marry a member of the Royal Family, you don?t become a member. The children of that marriage would be members of the Royal Family, but only if they claimed the lineage of your spouse. In other words, technically, your children could never be members of the Royal Family unless they disavowed your lineage and took on the lineage of the Royal Family.
Instead of becoming a member of the Royal Family, could you become a British subject? Of course you could. There is an application for that status. Once a British subject, would your children also be British subjects? If they were born after you became a British subject, the answer is yes.
You may ask, ?why would anyone want to become a member of the Royal Family, anyway?. The answer is simple. They are the only people who can own land. They are the ?sovereigns?. Everyone else is a ?subject? of the Master(s), and gets use of the land as a privilege extended by the Master, for which they pay a fee known as tax. We have already learned about privileges and how they can be given, and then taken away.
You may be asking yourself what this has to do with you. Everyone knows that there is no ?Royal Family? in America. Here, we?re all equal. That?s what our Founding Fathers did away with ? all that royalty stuff. The Founding Fathers intended that every man, woman, and child would be of equal status, and there would be no ?Noble Class?, in this great county called America! If that?s your thought pattern, you need to go back and examine the facts and events more closely.
When our Forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, exactly what did they do? They said to the King of England that he had been controlling that thing called sovereignty over them, and that they intended to take it for themselves. Pure and simple. They told him that they would fight him for it. They did, in fact, fight him for it; and, they won. Through war, our Forefathers gained control of their own sovereignty. The big question is, what did they do with that sovereignty once they had taken it from the King of England. To understand that, we must fully understand exactly what they took.
Where was the sovereignty held at the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence? It was secured within the Royal Family of England. The King was simply the head of that family, or the ?Supreme Sovereign? of the time. When the King died, he was quickly replaced by another sovereign, also a member of the Royal Family of England; in fact, normally the member in line from birth. Remember, all members of the Royal Family were/are sovereigns, in that they can all own land. So what our Forefathers took for themselves was not the King?s power. Rather, it was the power held by the Royal Family ? sovereignty itself. On the same line, what our Forefathers did away with was the King?s power, not sovereignty. Sovereignty was kept for themselves and their descendents.
Once our Forefathers had seized sovereignty from the Royal Family, what did they do with it? The popular conception held today is that they passed it out to anyone and everyone who showed up on these shores. The bureaucrats and power brokers would have you believe it was vested in the government. The facts simply do not support either idea. If we go forward some 12 years, to the signing of the Constitution (Declaration) for the united States of America, we gain great insight into what our Founding Fathers actually intended, and did.
First, look closely at the Preamble to the Constitution. It begins with the words, ?We the People?. The question arises, who were ?We the People?. Did this phrase refer to ALL the people who were living in America at that time? Absolutely, unquestionably, no, it did not. As an example, there were obviously American Indians living in America at that time. Were they included in ?We the People?? No, they were not. They were, in fact, recognized by most at that time, and for the next 100 plus years, as enemies of ?We the People?. They certainly were not afforded the Rights bestowed by the Constitution, or they could not have been killed and had their land taken from them without recourse or remedy. Were the slaves of the time part of ?We the People?? Obviously not, and the facts that we all know concerning that situation make a discussion of whether or not the slaves were included totally unnecessary. So, who were ?We the People?? It becomes obvious that ?We the People? were the state Citizens of the day. At that point in time, only state Citizens could vote, so from there we can conclude who ?We the People? were/are. They were white male landowners.
The balance of the Preamble gives what basically amounts to a ?mission statement?, or statement of intent. It lays out what the authors wanted to accomplish; and, last, but not least, who they intended all these Benefits and Rights for when it states, ??and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity??. Who were they doing this for? Themselves and their Posterity! Nobody else was included. At no point did they say that anybody born on these shores would be endowed to receive these Rights and Benefits. If fact, they obviously did not intend that, because there were many living there at the time that were not given those Rights and Benefits. Did they say that the beneficiaries would change with the next generation to include everybody born or naturalized here? Did they ever give Congress, or anybody else, the authority to add new ?members? to this very exclusive group called ?We the People?? If not, how were new People to be added to the group? There was only one way provided ? by birth with one of ?We the People? as a parent!
Now go back and look at the Royal Family of England. Do you see any resemblance? How did/do the Royal Family of England expand its membership? By birth. Where did our Founding Fathers take their power from? They took what the Royal Family of England had. Does it now start to make sense to you that our Forefathers actually changed very little about the system? The main change was simply the beneficiaries.
When you look at citizenship issues in the United States, you see a great many people coming to these shores from other parts of the world. When they come here, many wish to become ?citizens?. The United States accommodates great numbers of these people each year. Millions have applied for, and been granted, citizenship of the United States based on application, learning certain criteria, and testing. When they become a ?citizen of the United States?, do they also become an American Citizen, a ?sovereign?? If they do, it?s a well-kept secret. Have you ever heard any of them referred to a ?new sovereigns?? Isn?t it strange how the term ?sovereign? is never used anymore, and the status of American Citizen is seldom even mentioned? Do you find this situation to be troubling?
Allow me to advance a few possible questions for your consideration. What if there was an American Royal Family? What if it?s power was passed from father to son just like it is done in virtually every country in the world, and just like it has been done for thousands of years? What if there was a second status of citizenship for the common man, just like in every other country in the world, and just like there has been for thousands of years? What if the Royal Family was very jealous of its birthright, and didn?t want to share it with anyone else? What if the Royal Family turned over the reins of government to a group of servants sworn to protect the Royal Family?s interests above everything else, much like is the case in England? What if those servants found a way to deceive the Royal Family into believing that they were nothing more than common men, and were subjects of the servants instead of vise versa? What if those servants then tricked the Royal Family into turning over their birthright through a series of contracts instituted by the use of fraud and deception, without full disclosure and fair consideration? Do you think that, if these things happened and the Royal Family found out, there would be a way for the Royal Family to regain its rightful property and status?
Consider the status of a citizen of the United States. He is ruled by codes and regulations created by bureaucrats who are supposedly public servants. Most of these ?rules? are never even voted on, but are placed into ?law? by an official who wasn?t even elected to office. The citizen of the United States is not sovereign because he cannot own the land. Instead, he can negotiate for the use of land for which he pays a large fee (tax) to begin, and continues to pay a lesser fee (tax) for as long as he wants to use the land. He has the same set of rules for all his property, even though he probably doesn?t realize it. Now, think about it. How does he differ from the class of ?freemen? that most of our forefathers were before coming to America from England? I submit that the King?s total dictatorial power over every issue has been eliminated, or at least reduced somewhat; but, other than that, there is very little difference.
We know that sovereignty exists somewhere in this country. It has to. Someone owns the land. Is it ?We the People? who own the land? If not, who? The government would have you believe that it is the sovereign which owns the land; otherwise, it could not levy taxes against it. Show me any place where sovereignty was ever taken from ?We the People?. Show me any place where ?We the People? ever turned over sovereignty to the government, or anybody else except their Posterity. You can?t do either, because neither happened. I recently researched a number of Texas Attorney General opinions concerning land patents. In virtually every opinion, the Attorney General refers to the title going back to the sovereign. Keep in mind that this is the State of Texas Attorney General, so his opinion only deals with circumstances and events which took place after the State of Texas was in power. Yet they refer to the sovereign. That means that there were recognized sovereigns after the State of Texas became part of the Union. So what became of these sovereigns? Might I suggest that nothing happened to them; that in fact, they passed on their sovereignty to their children just like it had been passed to them? Might I be so bold as to further suggest that their children, or their children?s children, were deceived into believing that ?all men are equal? in America, and in so doing were conned out of their rightful inheritance and Birthright? If anything did happen to end sovereignty by the People, or to take sovereignty from the People, wouldn?t it be well-noted in history? After all, wouldn?t that be a pretty important event? It would completely undo everything that our Forefathers fought and died for. There must be some record of such an event! What this all leads to is the inevitable conclusion the government never really gained sovereignty over the land, at least not where the American Citizen is concerned. What the government has is, at best, colored title.
The truth is that nothing happened to the sovereigns or the sovereignty. It is exactly where our Forefathers placed it ? in the hands of their Posterity! Nothing ever happened to change that. What did happen was that a group of non-productive thieves and con-artists figured out a way to steal all the power left by birthright to the Posterity of the Founding Fathers. They found a way to contractually obligate the true sovereigns to a life of servitude under them. But they have yet to find a way to actually steal that sovereignty from its rightful owners, the American Citizens, once the American Citizen knows who he is and the power he possesses. We see evidence of the government?s tactics every day in the news. For example, think about ?hate crimes legislation?. Does that give you reason to stop and think. The term ?hate crimes? is a product of the government?s attempts to tell us that we are all the same, and anyone who thinks otherwise should be avoided and ridiculed. He certainly should not be associated with. And this entire idea relates back to what? Racial differences. Isn?t that the basis for all ?hate crimes? legislation? Hasn?t the government spent the last 40 years, and billions upon billions of dollars trying to convince ? to brainwash ? us all into believing that there are no differences between us? They talk about the color of one?s skin, and try to make you believe that the issue is a pigmentation in the skin. This tactic keeps most Americans from even looking at the real issues. Hasn?t the government, through its virtual total control of the media, demonized everything and everybody that even suggested that there might be a difference between people based on who they are and where they come from?
Make no mistake about it. It is not the Black man, or the Mexican or Spanish man, or any other race of people that the government is interested in protecting with this ?hate crimes? legislation. It is the government?s hold on the American Citizen that it wishes to protect and solidify. By demonizing everybody that evens mentions that there might be some differences between people, it keeps the great majority of American Citizens who have been defrauded into servitude through contract as a citizen of the United States, from searching for the truth of their Birthright for fear of being called a bigot, racist, or hate monger. Anyone who wants to talk about differences between people will immediately be thrown in one of those categories; even though the issue is status, not race.
We must all understand that all this to do about racism and bigotry has almost nothing to do with race. It has to do with status. It has to do with inheritance. It has to do with lineage. But the only thing it has to do with race is that there were no black signers or the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. There were no black state Citizens at that time. To state that fact makes me no more a racist than to say that my Father was white. It?s simply a fact, but it has been demonized to the point that most don?t dare even approach the issue. That?s by design, and it?s how we?ve all been drug into a state of servitude by those who should be our servants.
The real tragedy lies in the fact that the black man, and all other minorities in this country, have been held down and kept in a state of slavery by those who were claiming to give them freedom. It was never the plan of this government to free the black man. It was the plan of this government to use the black man to place the white man in a state of servitude right along with the black man. It has done this by insisting that everybody is equal, and that we must all ?do our fair share? and ?follow the rules just like everybody else has to?. The underlying idea is that we should readily accept that the government is all-powerful and benevolent, and believe that it is always acting in the best interest of the People. If you believe that, you?re wasting your time reading this.
In all the civil rights marches of the 60?s and 70?s, did you ever hear one black man demand to become an American Citizen? Did you ever hear one black man demand to become a sovereign? If you did, I missed it. What I heard was Martin Luther King whining that all men were equal and should be treated equal. He continually insisted that all men should walk together as one. What he never said was that all men should be sovereign ? never once that I heard. He either didn?t understand the issues, or he wasn?t acting in the best interest of his own people. Because what has already come to pass is almost exactly what he asked for. Almost all men are now equal ? they are all slaves to the government! To this day, I have never heard one black leader demand sovereignty or American Citizenship. The day that black men march on Washington demanding to be sovereigns, and demanding that the Constitution be changed to include them ? that?s the day that I will march by their side. But as long as their main focus is to be my equal by bringing down my status to that of citizen of the United States just so we can be equal, I will fight with my last breath to retain my status as sovereign. If that means we can?t be equal, so be it!
I find it very amusing that nobody is attacking the British Royal Family about being ?equal? with all the other people in England. In fact, have you heard such an outcry from any other country in the world? It seems the only people under attack for being sovereign are ?We the People?, the American Citizen/sovereign. Maybe that?s because of the way the American got his sovereignty. That could throw a real scare into the power mongers of the world if the American once again understood and seized his sovereignty. Other people might also get ideas. After all, our guys did throw a powerful King out.
Well, you have my thoughts. You must decide if you believe that there is an American Royal Family; and, if so, if you are in it. I?ve made my decision, and I believe all the facts are in my corner. Now I must go about reclaiming what is rightfully mine.
