Connecting the Organic Law dots: the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776 and the Constitution of September 17, 1787

Dear Candidate for the House of Representatives:
The first Organic Law, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States, the fourth and last Organic Law have little or no connection.
The Declaration of Independence initiated America’s independence from foreign government control. Great Britain still had to be defeated by force, nevertheless, July 4, 1776 is the official birthday of the nation which was soon to be known to the world as the United States of America. Although Americans start to live in the declared free thirteen United States they aren’t officially united until Maryland becomes the thirteenth State to ratify the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777, on March 1, 1781. These two documents, the Declaration of Independence and Articles of Confederation, form the basis of limited government in America they are connected—they are joined at the hip. An American must consent before he is governed, and the States of the Union must, as a condition of membership in the “perpetual union,” agree not to discriminate against free inhabitants, who do not consent to be governed.
The third Organic Law, the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787, provides a temporary government for Americans on government land, who will have no choice, but to submit to a national government consisting of a super majority of the States of the Confederacy. For a while, Americans on the territory owned by or subject to the exclusive legislative power of the United States of America have a choice: stay on government land and be governed or leave. Within weeks it won’t make a difference whether or not a person is on government land or not.
The ratification of the Constitution of September 17, 1787 removes the option of leaving the government’s land. When George Washington, who has just been declared President of the United States of America in Congress, on April 6, 1789, takes the oral oath of Office of President of the United States, he effectively crowns himself the American Dictator. By combining the two Offices of President of the United States of America and President of the United States, Washington succeeds King George III as tyrant in America.
The confused American public perceives the “United States” as the unification of the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and the continental United States of America. George Washington’s merger of the President of the United States of America into the President of the United States allows the newly formed political class to pass off the Constitution of the United States, created out of the oral oath of Office of the President of the United States, as the supreme law of their land as well as the lands belonging to the United States of America.
The Constitution of the United States, which was officially brought forth on the whispered breath of George Washington, very slowly added substance by the amendment process. That amendment process had no impact on a Congress, which took no Article VI oath to be bound by “this Constitution.” The Constitution of September 17, 1787 revised the Articles of Confederation, but it could not and did not replace the Articles of Confederation.
The historical record confirms the Constitution of September 17, 1787 could not be adopted until fourteen years would pass after the date of the Declaration of Independence. This is the only early connection between the first and last Organic Laws. No person in the Office of President could take the Article VI oath that would adopt the Constitution of September 17, 1787 until after July 4, 1790.
By July 4, 1790, Washington was comfortably in his two Offices, President of the United States of America and President of the United States, taking and subscribing the Article VI oath “to support this Constitution” to secure a third Presidency, the Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 Office of President, was never part of Washington’s bloodless coup. The 14 year residency requirement did provide Washington a handy excuse for not subscribing the Article VI oath.
George Washington’s taking of the oral oath of Office of President of the United States was the end of the Declaration of Independence’s government by the consent of the governed. After April 30, 1789, the President of the United States considered every free inhabitant a Citizen of the United States subject to its jurisdiction and the Articles of Confederation were replaced by the Constitution of the United States.
I am submitting this document to establish my bona fides as a political dissident.
