“The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. You can see it when you
look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when
you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world
that has been pulled over your eyes (in order) to blind you from the truth.”

Morpheus, from the movie “The Matrix”

For those who have not seen the movie The Matrix, the red pill is what you take if you are willing - really willing - to know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

To those who, like me, value the truth, it seems almost incomprehensible that anyone, much less the majority, would never take the red pill. But in reality, most people would do just about anything to avoid the simple, plain truth. But why?

Why do people go to great lengths to avoid the truth? Because the truth frightens most people. The truth often hurts, and ordinarily people do not want to be in pain.

The First Truth

The first truth is that you - not anybody else - are responsible for your own actions. Most people are terrified at the prospect and would do anything to defer, delay, or otherwise avoid the tremendous responsibility of knowing this one fundamental truth. After all, if you know you are responsible for your own life and you still aren’t happy, then you have nobody else to blame for your misery!  Most people would do anything to avoid facing such a painful reality.

There are numerous truths concerning the government of the United States, its corporate-State-adjuncts, and its relationship to the American people. Many of these truths are incomprehensible to most people, who themselves have too many lies to unlearn before they could even begin to see a glimmer of the truth. The majority are simply unwilling to have their illusions about life shattered by a strong dose of reality.

Take the Red Pill

Here is a challenge to you. If you are willing to know the harsh reality of truth, then I invite you to take the red pill. However, be forewarned! Once opened, your eyes can never again be fully closed. Once you shed your ignorance, you can never regain it, and there will be times when you will wish for the blissfulness of your lost ignorance.

To those among you who have remained with me this far, I thank and salute you. You are the courageous, the inspiring, the adventurous… you are akin to the men and women who originally shaped the character of the united States of America; a character that can never be destroyed, so long as it is remembered in the principled actions of just a few of us.

Truths about Government

The truth is that the United States government has declared war on the American people (Public Law 1 – March 9, 1933). That’s right! The American people are considered by the government to be its enemy! That’s why you are so tightly regulated and controlled.

The truth is that since December 1860, there has not been a constitutional Congress in Washington, D.C. It was then that Congress adjourned sine die (without a date for reconvening) and they have never reconvened, except under Executive Order, which does not represent a constitutional assembly of Congress (Note: Title 2 of the U.S. Codes, The Congress, is non-positive law!).

The truth is that since December 23, 1913 and more especially since March 9, 1933, the American people have been without a constitutional form of money. Their property has been pillaged and plundered by an international banking system based on debt. The privately owned Federal Reserve Corporation charges interest for the use of its Federal Reserve Notes! Think about it! A note is an instrument of debt; a promise to pay! Every time you spend a FRN you are creating debt!

Income Tax and Social Security

How about income tax and social security? The truth is that the United States federal income tax is a representation of the Second Plank of Karl Marx’ Communist Manifesto (“a graduated and progressive income tax”). By paying any portion of income tax, you are contributing to a communist tax designed to undermine the positive effects of a free-market. Think about it! The more you earn, the more you pay. Therefore, the more you earn, the less you actually have, and the harder you have to work in order to simply maintain the status quo for you and your family. This discourages hard work and ultimately leads to economic collapse.

Social security is neither insurance nor benefit. It is a hybrid designed to get the American people to waive their God-given rights in favor of government privileges. The voluntary acceptance of a social security number (yes, it really is voluntary) binds you to a contract with the United States government, to waive your unalienable rights in favor of eligibility for federal benefit programs. Did you get that! You must waive your natural rights in order to become eligible for federal benefits. You are not even guaranteed to receive them! You must still apply and could be refused!

Consider what life might be like if you had in your pocket all of the money that you have been sinking into social security and income tax for the last several years or even decades. Most people would live like royalty, which is the American heritage! So why do you continue to support an ungodly, communist, un-American social security and income tax system, especially when your participation really is voluntary?

The Court System

The truth is that the American court system has been totally corrupted. It is almost impossible to get a fair or speedy trial in an Article III court, under constitutional Rule of Law. The official court system is under admiralty (i.e. military) jurisdiction, due to the bankruptcy of the United States in 1933 (House Joint Resolution 192,May 29, 1933).

Attorneys have all but taken over all three branches of our government. Each branch has usurped authority and claimed powers never granted by the people. Article after Article of our Bill of Rights has been violated, ignored and circumvented, with malice and aforethought, by criminals pretending to public office. That is the documented truth.

The Greatest Truth

Perhaps the greatest truth of all is that ordinary people really are the American aristocracy. We the People are the rulers, and all government officials - elected or appointed – are our public servants. Remember that the primary purpose of government is to secure the free exercise of your unalienable, Creator-endowed rights (Declaration of Independence, 1776).

“…Whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right (and duty) of the people to alter or abolish it…”
Declaration of Independence, 1776

The Constitution is like a whip and chair; the government is like a beast. The ensemble requires a lion tamer, which is We the People. We have been remiss in our duties to guard the integrity and character of our Republic from all enemies, domestic and foreign. We have been poor stewards, poor protectors of the precious gifts bestowed on us by our Creator, and by the brave men and women who died so that you and I might live free.

That is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Now, are you ready to receive the truth, and what are you going to do with it?

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32
