Referenced on the broadcast:
Engaging a Metric to Measure Freedom
Who originally coined this oldie but goodie? Thomas Jefferson?
“When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”
Not according to Monticello.org:
Are you one of the people of the several states and afforded the protections of the Bill of Rights?
Or, are you on the Federal Plantation, a US Citizen, whose rights are modifiable?
Obama on the duality of US v America
Art of the Homograph
Corey on Homograph – two words spelled the same and spoken the same, but two different meanings. Example “rose” as a flower and “rose” as someone stood up.
The State of California is a homograph – two different natures.
One is one of the several states, guaranteed a republican form of government with constitutional protections.
The other State of California is an administrative for profit business that has no constitutional protections, like the several states do.
And, it’s examining the nature of those two states to find determine which one they’re talking about.
Texas v White Syllabus addresses such duality and potential homograph of the state:
State of California as Admin Division of Federal Government – has people and government, but no defined boundaries.
State of California as one of the several states, which has people, government and boundaries.
Modern day gov-co employees are probably thinking they operate in a geographic State of California, but when you get to court there’s two different states.
State of Nevada Origins
Did President Abraham Lincoln “create” Nevada?
Can Nevada be one of the several states?
Wikipedia says Nevada’s statehood was expedited to help Lincoln win electoral votes.
The requirement for there to be 60,000 people in a territory in order to be one of the several states was enumerated in the Enabling Act.
Citizens United v US
Obama’s comment about the SCOTUS ruling
Tarble’s Case 1871
U.S. Supreme Court
Tarble’s Case, 80 U.S. 13 Wall. 397 397 (1871)
80 U.S. (13 Wall.) 397
1. The government of the United States and the government of a state are distinct and independent of each other within their respective spheres of action, although existing and exercising their powers within the same territorial limits. Neither government can intrude within the jurisdiction, or authorize any interference therein by its judicial officers with the action of the other. But whenever any conflict arises between the enactments of the two sovereignties or in the enforcement of their asserted authorities, those of the national government have supremacy until the validity of the different enactments and authorities are determined by the tribunals of the United States.
