Power to change
Power To Change
"Before governments will change men must change."
Most of the power exercised by government over the people today, especially the Federal government, is based on contracts or compacts between the government and the people. Not understanding the contractual nature of governments and the power of the Contract clause in the constitution might lead many to think that the government is usurping its powers.
There are both the executed contracts through agreements and applications actually signed by you or your legal guardians as you were growing up, and there are also constructive contracts through participation and hypothecation. All these contracts come in a variety of forms and from numerous sources and activities. Most people are completely unaware of or do not understand them or how they change their rights and the power of government.
The Bible warns all about making covenants with the inhabitants and their gods where you go and we offer a number of books and articles including as Covenants of the gods and Contracts Covenants and Constitutions.
Many people think the contract between the citizens and the government is the constitution that created the United States. That constitution was not between the people but between the states, which created an additional and external government. The people were not a party to it. However, the people have become a part of the programs and agencies and even some of the corporations of the United States. The people have changed in their relationship to the United States. They have changed by their own actions or inactions the nature of their citizenship.
While the constitution has been altered through amendment the real increase in government control and power has come through the constitution's guarantee of your right to make agreements and a system of courts to enforce those agreements with corporate entities and agencies in or on the behalf of the United States.
"No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility." 
The fact is the people have made many agreements for which there are no remedies at Common Law. So those remedies are found in courts of equity which are ruled by statutes.
“That suits in equity shall not be sustained in either of the courts of the United States, in any case where plain, adequate and complete remedy may be had at law.” 
The Constitution does not exist in a vacuum. The people are not free for numerous reasons. Those contracts, covenants and the constitution have allowed the people to indulge in Covetous Practices that have made them Merchandise and cursed their children so that all their land has become a surety for debt. Those who are citizens of the United States and their children are beneficiaries of the commerce and commercial trusts of the United States and therefore they and all they have legal title to is surety for the debts of the cestui que trust.
"Congress shall have power...To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes." 
Most Americans lived under common law back in 1798 and there were very few benefits of or from the US government, but all the people who have access to a plethora of benefits are heavily regulated today in equity and through the contract and commerce clauses.
They have made agreements with the Fathers of the earth, the gods of this world. And the law of Nature where constitutions begin says Pacta Sevanda Sunt, Agreements must be kept. This is why Jesus and Moses who set people free said make no covenants with them or their gods.
so you can learn to care about your neighbors rights as much as your own and be bound only by righteousness
through faith, hope and charity and the Perfect law of liberty.
How did this happen?
The government is not violating the constitutional prohibitions as much as people think or would like to think.
- Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote, "The evil was not in the bread and circuses, per se, but in the willingness of the people to sell their rights as free men for full bellies and the excitement of the games which would serve to distract them from the other human hungers which bread and circuses can never appease."
Man was given dominion over the earth and those things that creep upon it, fly above it or swim in its waters, but not over one another. The history of mankind demonstrates the "willingness of the people to sell their rights as free men". The Bible was mostly about how to govern yourselves and not go under other governments of men. This is why all the prophets of God, Christ, and the Apostles have been warning the people from the beginning not eat with rulers or go to those "Fathers of the earth" who call themselves "benefactors but "exercise authority" one over the other to provide social welfare. Those benefits are the wages of unrighteousness of a table from which we should not eat which are the result of covetous practices that will make us merchandise and curse children. All the problems of the world today can be traced back to the fact modern religions ignore the commandments and not to covet your neighbor's goods, make covenants with other gods, bow down and serve them to "sell their rights as free men for full bellies", nor borrow against the future and be slothful in the ways of righteousness.
Through their application for benefits, they have failed to "retain" their rights because they failed to retain their responsibilities. They have clearly failed to provide for themselves and their posterity, instead, they accepted the idea that they can enrich themselves at the expense of their neighbor with impunity and have become little more than human resources in the process. Bible warnings say they would be trapped, snared by what should have been for our Welfare and become merchandise because of our covetousness.
It is very convenient to blame all of what is happening today, concerning rights, on government fraud but the truth is we have made serious errors in our own thinking, activities, and relationship with government because of a lack of consideration of our neighbor, which, despite what we say in our churches and religious faiths. We simply do not love our neighbors as much as we love ourselves and we desire the benefits we are obtaining from authoritarian Benefactors at our neighbor's expense.
There is a maxim of law:
“Protection draws to it subjection; subjection protection”
“As long as we look to government to solve our problems we will always suffer tyranny.” —William Pitt
You have asked the government to protect your family from ignorance, medical costs, disability, old age, unemployment, destitution and a thousand other things. You have given the government the power to guarantee all these things by taking from your neighbor. You even borrow against the future to get what you want today. How can you curse your children and your neighbor's with debt with these Covetous Practices and still you think you should not be subject?
Your applications for benefits are contracts with the state and the institutions you create and the motivating spirit behind all these daily activities from generation to generation is covetousness...
“A contract is law between the parties having received their consent.”
The bondage of Egypt was the result of a contract with Pharaoh's state to serve him in exchange for social welfare. There is a lot to learn and not much time to do it in... There is a lot to do too.
What the constitution was supposed to do, and the fear of what it might be able to do, along with what the people need to do in order to maintain their rights, has long been outside of the collective consciousness of American society.
Their present state of bondage is the result of hundreds of contracts they and their parents have been signing for more than a century. This present status as subjects, rather than free people, has been a long time in coming and it required that their perception of history be changed. They needed a moral shift in their thinking that allowed them to overlook their failure to be righteous, and their personal indulgence in vice with some justification for what used to be called iniquity or sin.
The Role Public Education Played
The Reece Commission uncovered a plan to change "the way Americans viewed history" that began back in 1908 by altering history books and making them available in public and private education at a reduced cost.
At first, the changes were subtle but the distractions of two world wars were very useful in this reeducation process.
The acceptance of public education itself was very much a part of that plan too and it was at that time that Americans went from being mostly educated privately to the majority being educated at public expense. Religions that have clearly prohibited the coveting of anything that was your neighbors turned a blind eye to this moral infraction when it came to education. The idea of taxing your neighbor to provide education becomes morally accepted and commonplace despite the repeated warnings found in the bible.
Once they altered the view of history and social norms they could steadily get the people to waive their rights. Some knew this was happening and warned the people, but most did not want to see their fault in the whole matter.
This process and the ignorance of the American people is why US vs. Minker. 350 US,179 p187. states:
“Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their rights, due to ignorance.”
They still don't want to see their errors and mistakes or their failings and shortcomings. They always want to blame some other group which of course is part of the dialectic that moves people more and more into bondage.
The Covenants of the gods
The =process of enslaving the whole nation, and even the whole world level by level, is detailed in a book that can be read free online called, The Covenants of the gods. There are numerous layers to the bondage. The word bondage is not a misnomer, because that is what the people are presently in; and they cannot get out of that bondage with the wave of a pen like those calling themselves "sovereign citizens" will often try to portray.
The Bible is mentioned in the book, but the clear details and references are to the law; the steady progression into serfdom and bondage is documented step by step in the law. Some of the top attorneys in the United States have read some of Brother Gregory's books and pamphlets and agreed with the conclusions.
For an example of the content, read the first chapter of the book The Covenants of the gods that demonstrates how a state marriage contract (license) is a three-party contract with the State, giving them jurisdiction over the marriage, the property accumulated and the children produced.
Again, a top attorney who graduated Summa Cum Laude, got the highest score ever on the Bar exam in his day, practiced law in several states, handled international law cases, and also taught law and wrote law books, agreed with everything in that first chapter although he warned that it would not be well received. Why? because it reveals how the law works. And it reveals how the State gets power over the people.
There is no quick fix offered. It took a long time to get here and it will take a long time and a lot of effort to get back, but we are not going to get anywhere with the common dialectic arguments normally seen going back and forth today. It's time to do things differently than before.
Who has ears to hear, Let them hear.
