The Organic Laws of the United States of America are presented in Volume 1 of the United States Code as the foundation of “the general and permanent laws of the United States.” This presentation of the four Organic Laws and all the Titles of the United States Code tells us unequivocally that the United States of America and the United States are separate and distinct entities connected almost exclusively to the two pairs of Organic Laws written about the same time.
The first two Organic Laws, the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776 and Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 are the first pair of Organic Laws which are connected to the United States of America, the Confederacy and the first and perpetual Union.
The last two Organic Laws are the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 and the Constitution of September 17, 1787, the second pair of Organic Laws which are connected to the United States, “this Union,” the United States, which include the governments of the 50 States, the federal territory within those States and Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, America Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
The Declaration of Independence describes an America where men and women are free to be governed exclusively by their Creator and the English common law. Article IV of the Articles of Confederation secures individual freedoms by restraining the assertion of power by the States of the first Union.
The United States Supreme Court requires proof of authority in assertions of power by anyone dealing with a person claiming government authority. See Federal Crop Insurance Corporation v. Merrill, 332 U.S. 380 (1947)
In every situation where there is a claim of government authority, that authority will be limited to the territory described in Article IV Section 3 Clause 2 of the Constitution of September 17, 1787.
Knowledge of the limitations of government requires a complete comprehension of the Organic Laws of the United States of America. To receive a complete set of searchable Organic Laws, contact me at edrivera at symbol edrivera dot com
