10 Key Facts of Law

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”

– Hosea 4:6

In the early decades of America’s birth, the vital importance of knowing the Constitution and the legal principles which maintain civilized societies was commonly understood. People knew that America’s system of limited government required them to keep their government servants in check in order to protect their God-given rights. Yet, today, it is rate to find such an understanding. As a consequence, the majority of Americans have a propaganda-inspired understanding of our legal system instead of an understanding that aligns with the original intent.

In order to protect your rights, safeguard your family, and keep your business from tyrannical control, you must fully understand and courageously assert, at minimum, these ten facts of law:

        1. 1. All rights come from God, not government.
          1. This means that no government can take away or grant rights to a sovereign man, woman, or child.

        1. 2. The purpose of government is to protect individual rights.
          1. This means that no government can lawfully abuse your rights without your explicit consent.

        1. 3. The Constitution enumerates the only powers granted to government that are necessary for it to fulfill its obligation to protect individual rights.
          1. This means that any policies that do not fall within the scopes of the authorized powers are unconstitutional and, hence, unlawful.

        1. 4. The Constitution secures the right to Due Process.
          1. This means that an accused person must be properly charged, served process, have the opportunity for a hearing, be able to face his accuser, be able to examine the evidence, have access to counsel, and have none of his rights infringed by procedures, decisions or unconstitutional decrees and laws.

        1. 5. There must be a real victim who has been directly harmed in order for a crime to be lawfully charged.
          1. This means that an accused cannot be charged with a crime absent evidence that the alleged victim has suffered actual harm as a direct result of the accused’s actions.

        1. 6. The Constitution secures the right to trial by jury and cross-examination of the alleged victim.
          1. This means that, unless he explicitly waives this right, an accused cannot be fined or otherwise punished without being able to cross-examine the accuser in front of a jury, and that jury arriving at a guilty verdict at the conclusion of a public trial.

        1. 7. Separation of Powers bars a public servant in the executive branch or in the judicial branch of government from making laws.
          1. This means that edicts, mandates, and Executive Orders issued by Governors, or pubic police rulings issued by judges, have no lawful authority compelling a sovereign person to obey.

        1. 8. Executive Orders, Health Officers’ mandates, and County health guidelines are not laws.
          1. This means that there is no legal obligation to obey required of those people who do not hold public offices, or are not under contract with government, or are not trading their rights for government benefits.

        1. 9. Licenses and permits do not give the licensing agency supreme powers.
          1. Though persons who willingly submit to being regulated by way of obtaining licenses and permits do, in exchange, surrender some of their rights, such grants of authority over a person’s affairs are generally limited in scope. This means that an enforcer of the license cannot compel the licensee to perform acts not explicitly required by the license at the time it was purchased.

        1. 10. The Constitution- not a Governor’s decree- is Supreme Law.
          1. This means that any decrees- particularly those which violate rights- attempted to be enforced against a common Constitutional citizen have no lawful authority to compel compliance.
