The present volume critically examines the notion of sovereignty against a backdrop of various events drawn primarily – but not exclusively -- from American history. Among the topics discussed are: Charter of the Forests, republicanism, sovereignty, democracy, the rule of law, the Philadelphia Convention of 1787, the process of ratification, the Supreme Court, corporations, the Federal Reserve, the military-industrial complex, the CIA, and some of the decisions of modern American presidents ranging from: Eisenhower to Obama.
A central theme of the foregoing book concerns the manner in which all three branches of government have consistently failed to comply with the guarantee promised in Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution involving a republican form of government in the service of the purposes contained in the Preamble. By failing to operate in accordance with the requirements of Article IV, Section 4, America has had a very different history than might have occurred if the central promise of the Constitution had been honored.
