Toward a Government of the People

[Update on CC2009 President Michael Badnarik at end!]

The experience of the Continental Congress 2009 was one in a lifetime: concentrated time with others to discuss our sacred documents and our bonds as Americans.  Both learning and change were profound, as was the simplicity of discovery.

I am pleased to present an essay from New Hampshire delegate Rick Harvey, presented to his constituents upon return from the Third Continental Congress.

Where we have Been, and Where we are Headed.

Personal Speech by Delegate Rick Harvey – NH, Regarding the “Situation” in America Today  ©2010 Rick Harvey, Newington, NH

I will share with you an insight that I had as a result of being a delegate to the CC2009 in St. Charles, Illinois Nov 11-22, 2009.

I realized that for the past 150 years or so we have all been living in what you might call“The Government of Lincoln”.When Lincoln was assassinated he had not yet been able to remove the country from the“marital law” he used to govern the country during the civil war. As a result, we remain today in a government “of, by, and for the corporations and special interests”, and still governed by “the gun”. Our banks are “martial”, our courts are “martial”.

U.S. Civil Flag

That is the reason for the golden fringe around our war flags, the ones with the horizontal stripes that we all think of as the American Flag because we have never seen any other. It signifies the “war” conditions we are still living under. The civil flag, the first flag of the USA, is the one you see Susan holding in my Avatar here. That is the pattern that was carried aboard the British ship at the Boston Tea Party by Patriots; vertical stripes.  It was our first flag. It represents that we are “at peace”.

We must now transition back to the Government of Washington, and the founders. That Government is not ruled by the “gun”. It is ruled by the consent of the people, the“sovereigns” in our Republic. We are not a “democracy”, actually. The group or majority is not “sovereign”. The individual is. For more about that read Red Beckman’s “BornAgain Republic”.

I also realized that in a sense we “sovereign individuals” have been “ambushed”, and I know from my own military experiences that the only sure way out of an ambush is to go out of it the exact same way you came into it. If you survive, at least then you live to fight another day. The only way out is the way on which they have not yet “closed the door”.

Well, we lost our money in 1913 when the Central Bank was allowed to set up. And in 1918 we lost the traditional law, and Admiralty law was substituted. I learned about Admiralty Law when I visited England where my wife Susan comes from, and we visited the “Victory”, Admiral Lord Nelson’s flag ship. Below decks the guide explained that the short whip was called the “starter”. Some call it “cat of ninetails”.  It is used to “start” a man moving faster in his work! That is “Admiralty Law” in a nutshell. It means “do what we say to do, or be punished”.

All this is now going to be reversed by American Patriots, starting in the 2010 elections and going on for many years ahead.The first step in getting out of this Ambush the way we came into it is to take back our“Law”. That means taking back the State Houses, and putting in the right people, the ones who love the Constitution.Once that is done, these true Americans can legislate back the “real” money again, and we will be on our way out of the morass that 150 years of military rule has caused.

There has been much pain and sacrifice along the way. We must let go of bad feelings about it. We should just be thankful that we “remembered” who we were in time, thanks to real patriot heroes of our day, men and women like Beckman, Schulz, Whitmore, Karp and Renick, Paul, Badnarik, all the CC2009 delegates elected to represent their states, and so many others now also, including Bachman and Taitz.  So many, the list would fill volumes, and all of them are the “FAITHFUL” patriots in America today.These are things on which I would not have been able to put two and two together, if  I had not been a “delegate” to CC2009.

We are stuck in a “Government of Lincoln”, but now transitioning again to the “Government of Washington and our Founders”. The “Government of Lincoln” has served its purpose.  It held together the “Union”. Now it is time for freedom and liberty to re-emerge and “consolidate” the objective, wherein the founding of “America” was just a “beachhead”.

For those in New Hampshire who voted for me I want to say “thank you!” It was the most profound experience to go to CC2009, and it is still profound to “have been there”. It was “life changing”. God bless. Time to get busy and “started” (but not by being whipped!). This time we go under our own power to take back the law, then the money, and then OUR COUNTRY. May God guide and direct every one of us in this exciting battle for real America.
Rick Harvey, Newington NH

Update on Michael Badnarik from WA Delegate Jeff Williams:

Just spoke to Michael… tubes come out tomorrow, with luck he will be released Thursday.

His message to all of us was there’s no way he’s dying until the
restart of liberty is complete.

He also indicated he has a new marketing campaign for his
constitution classes… come see Michael, he could drop dead at
any time. His sense of humor and free market capitalism hasn’t
suffered one iota.

It’s about time we had some good news around here.

    Thank you Rick, for a beautiful essay. It is a pleasure serving with you on the Third Continental Congress!

    Well said, well said, indeed!!

    You might enjoy perusing Mario Apuzzo’s website thinking along the lines you do:

    The Kerchner et al action presented in detail therein will have an Brief filed before the Appeals court on Jan 19, 2010 – one step away from the Supreme Court where it will eventually be decided.

    Great essay, DrKate… thanks for posting.

    Now: to awaken many more from what I see as a reverse ‘matrix’ if you will. General USA population is plugged into a false sense of reality like in the Matrix movie, but when they unplug, they are free – but in a GOOD way.

    We need people to unplug from their current ‘realities’ (slave like lives), get educated on the Constitution and how awesome it is as described in ‘The 5000 year leap’.

    BHO, his handlers and the current ‘regime’ in Washington MUST realize their time is SHORT (hence the huge pushes to re-design Amerika in their socialist/marxist/communist image)…

    Keep getting the word out, DrKate, as you do so well…

    Thanks for posting this, Dr. Kate. It explains some things I didn’t know. A special thanks to every one involved in CC2009 and the Articles of Freedom!
    My prayers are still for Michael Badnarik. How is he doing?

      Delegate Harvey is one of the most thoughtful people I know on this subject, and very smart. I was delighted to have the opportunity to post this piece, which he had shared with the delegates on our ‘basecamp’ website discussion board.

      Re Michael, he is still in the hospital, unfortunately, with heart beating less than 50% of its needed strength. His brothers and best friend are around him, and will take him home once he is out of the hospital. The doctors expect a full recovery, albeit long, but lets just say that I beat my drum for him every morning and at different times of the day, and pray a lot.

      BETTER NEWS!!! From delegate Jeff Williams (WA):

      Just spoke to Michael… tracheotomy tube comes out tomorrow, with luck he will be released Thursday.

      His message to all of us was there’s no way he’s dying until the restart of liberty is complete.

      He also indicated he has a new marketing campaign for his constitution classes… come see Michael, he could drop dead at any time. His sense of humor and free market capitalism hasn’t suffered one iota.

      It’s about time we had some good news around here.

    I believe that this movement has reached ‘tipping point’. Ultimate victory is assured, but there is still a great deal of work to do and courage is needed in abundance. Like I said, victory is assured.

    Like I said, victory is assured

    Nothing is assured with these despicable bunch of tyrants who have seized our Government and our freedom. If you look away just briefly you will be bamboozled. He told us so. You can’t solve a moutainous issue with a little energy. A big problem takes a big solution. He’s confident but we are not. We are on the offensive. NEVER take your eye off the ball. NEVER assume. We are in foreign territory. We have NEVER been here before. But I vision them dropping like flies. They will not get away with anything. Karma will make sure of that. Believe in it or not. It is still real. May the Karma be swift and forceful to all who seek to loot us and bring us down, domestic or foreign. 😡

    I’m so happy about Michael. He has done such wonderful work and it looks like he intends to continue doing so.


    This is on a beautiful rug that I noticed going into my grandson’s elementary school last evening. It features several children in a line holding hands and that saying at the top. It made me think of all of us patriots standing together and fighting for our constitutional republic. With OUR hands together we can!!!
