No citizens of the United States

Can one be a citizen of the United Nations?

Since the United States is not a single nation, proof of which is in the debates that occurred during the constitutional convention and by the fact that the word nation does not appear anywhere in the Constitution with respect to the United States, can one be a citizen of the United States? Or was the 14th's citizen clause just a bunch of ignorant people trying to create something that cannot exist?

One can be a citizen of a State, which meant the same thing as Nation at the time of the framing.

State and Nation today are taught incorrectly as not being synonymous. The last paragraph of the Declaration of Independence provides the evidence of equivalent meaning.

The idea has been pushed as a way of centralizing power in the fed and destroying the States. One of the paths has been through the teaching of the Pledge of Allegiance, which is used to brainwash people into believing that the fed is the unit and the States are subunits.

Lincoln destroyed the union and attempted to make us into his idea of a nation but our founding documents do not support this idea.

What's a trillion?

They talk about the expenditures with the same ease as a bunch of women at a coffee clatch. $1.7 trillion here, $24 trillion there.

For the normal person, trillion has absolutely no meaning. I have to teach young college students about chemistry. One of the most confusing things is the counting unit that chemists use known as the mole. The mole is a number of parts just like a dozen is a count of parts or pieces. A dozen is 12. A mole is 6.022 x 1023.

I begin the lesson in the same manner as I will attempt to teach the reader about a trillion.

The government spent at least a trillion dollars in two (2) stimulus packages. Yes, there were two already. One wish Bush and one with Obama.

So in order to teach a comprehension of just how much a trillion dollars is, we need to begin with a smaller number that the average person can easily grasp. We could start with 100 or 1000 and everyone would quickly understand how much those number represent. So instead lets start with 1,000,000 (one million).

Now we are going to count an imaginary pile of dollar bills. We will count at the rate of one bill per second until we have counted them all. So here goes, 1, 2, 3, 4, ...

And after 1,000,000 seconds of continuous counting we will have counted the one million one dollar bills. So it takes 1,000,000 seconds to count a million dollars BUT what are 1,000,000 seconds in a more reasonable measure of time, say days. Well there are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in and hour and 24 hours in a day. So completing the math, there are 86,400 seconds in a day. Next we divide 1,000,000 by 86,400 and find that 1,000,000 seconds are equal to about 11.57 days.

So how much is a billion dollars. A billion is 1000 millions. SO if it takes 11.57 days to count to one million at the rate of one number per second for EVERY second of every day, it will takes 1000 times as long to count to a billion. A billion dollars would take 11,570 days to count. But we need that 11,570 days in a more understandable unit like years. So divide 11,570 by 365 and you will find it takes about 31 years to count to a billion at the rate of one dollar per second.

Now a trillion is 1000 billions. It took 31 years to count to a billion so it will take 31 times 1000 or 31,000 years to count one trillion dollar bills.

That is an extremely long time and represents an outrageous amount of money.

Now realize the government has no assets but YOU and I and the others. Money is not created by government. What you call money is an exchange material for the wealth that is you. The true wealth of any group of people is the people themselves. Only the people can go outside and dig a trench where a trench needs dug. A government cannot. No government creates wealth. All governments transfer wealth from one person, the worker, to other persons, nonworkers. Work is wealth.

So when you consider the deficit our government is creating remember that the government is placing the load on the backs of your children and your generations for tens of generations.

Popey Boy, Read your Bible!

Pope: Time for new world financial order
Says it has unprecedented potential to redistribute wealth around world
--Associated Press

Guess the Pope has never read the Bible!

God distributed the wealth as He saw fit. God helps those who help themselves.

Nothing in the OT would lead one to believe God shared everything equally. Different groups received different allocations. Does God expect each of us to help others? Yes He does. Does God force each of us to help others, as the Pope would do? NO, a thousand times No!

So the Pope wants to use a new world financial order to redistribute wealth around the world. OK, lets start with all the land, and all the art, and all the statuary, and all the resources of the one and only Catholic Church. Popey Boy, pack your bags. We sellin' da place!
