The first Constitution didn't have a Bill of Rights. The anti-federalist are responsible for putting them into the Constitution. Later, 2nd president Adams never understood the Bill of Rights with his Sedition Act. Then came Lincoln who was the became a tyrannical dictator and and unequivocally proved Brutus 1 right on the money. Lincoln's cronies and the 14th amendment neutered the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution.

The greatest concept that any person who considers themselves 'free and sovereign' must understand is the creation of CURRENCY. Currency is nothing but an accounting unit – a token that represents the value of the productive efforts of the individual. The true wealth of any community, city, state, or national body of people is their productive efforts – not any commodity like gold. Currency, therefore, can be anything that can be used as an accounting unit, but not able to be counterfeited. Why is 'currency creation' the GREATEST concept any person who considers themselves 'free and sovereign' must understand? Because without the ability to freely create your accounting units to represent the value of your productive efforts, there is no way you can freely contribute to the health, wealth, and prosperity of your community, city, state, or national body. Humanity has the natural right to create its own accounting units without debt or bondage. This is why the 'moneylender system' that currently dictates how humanity acquires its accounting units, and thus its ability to function, is a CURSE. The colonial states understood the importance of currency creation and fought a bloody war over the right to freely create their own debt-free currency. and created their own state currencies. When the colonial states gave up their sovereingty to a central government, they gave up their right to freely create their own state currency without debt. Without the ability to create their own their own state currencies, states instantly became debt-slaves, dependent on the central government to create the 'national' currency. And since the central government is controlled by moneylenders, states are forced to tax their people. The idea that a community can communicate its needs to their district government, which communicates those needs onto their state government, which communicates the needs onto the central government so that currency can be created and given to the community to represent the productive efforts that the community wants to implement for itself has utterly failed. Fraud and corruption can overtake a small central governmentare FAR more easily than 50 independent state governments within quick reach and response from their people. Americans have been living in a completely broken system of government ever since the US Constitution superceded the Articles of Confederation and became the law of the land. The Anti-Federalists received a deaf ear way back in 1789 and Americans have been deaf, dumb and blind ever since.
