The members of the Congress that enacted the Democrat Health Care Reform Bill have never taken and been bound by the Article VI oath “to support this Constitution,” so the House of Representatives and Senate that make up that Congress are not a branch of any government under the authority of the Constitution of September 17, 1787. The oaths taken by every Congress since the first one convened on March 4, 1789 have been the result of the legislative power of a Congress derived from the proprietary over the Northwest Territory and similar territory owned by and ceded to the United States of America.
All members of Congress, however, are bound by the legislative oath they take to support the Constitution of the United States, which consists of the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 and the constitution of the federal territory owned by and ceded to the United States of America.
The word “federal” is derived from the word “Confederacy,” which is created when Maryland the thirteenth State ratifies the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777, and it means of the Confederacy.
The Republicans in Congress could easily limit the Democrat Health Care Reform Bill to the territory owned by the United States of America, but in so doing all federal power would be limited to the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 and the territory owned by and ceded to the United States of America. This is the kind of government contraction the American people want, but which the Congress and the President refuse to acknowledge.
Making sense of all federal legislation begins at the beginning of a new nation ruled by the unwritten law described in the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776. The Confederacy of the United States of America is formed “for their common defence,” with the proviso that free inhabitants are to have all the privileges and immunities of citizens. The third Organic Law, the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787, is a temporary form of government for the settlers and inhabitants of the Northwest Territory and other territory belonging to the United States of America. The fourth Organic Law, the Constitution of September 17, 1787, created a permanent form of the government for the Northwest Territory, which took a commercial form when neither the Congress nor any President adopted the Constitution by taking and subscribing the Article VI oath “to support this Constitution.”
The foregoing history of the Organic Laws of the United States of America shows an even division of those four laws between unwritten and written law. Federal law is as stated in Article VI Clause 2, “the supreme Law of the Land,” but only in territory owned by and ceded to the United States of America.
Federal law is litigated in United States district courts, where the territorial composition of their districts and divisions is determined according to the following lead sentence in Chapter 5 District Courts of Title 28 Judiciary and Judicial Procedure: “Sections 81 – 131 of this chapter show the territorial composition of districts and divisions by counties as of January 1, 1945.” Sections 81 to 131 show the 48 States, the two territories, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, which means the territorial composition of the judicial districts and divisions is the federal territory in the counties and parishes.
