Reclaiming Our State Sovereignty


The group participants in the Tea Party movement of Michigan are eager for knowledge.  I believe the goal should be to provide a learning platform, starting with the fundamental documents of the American Republic, followed by the founding documents that eventually led to Michigan becoming a state of the Union in 1837.

We need to provide the historical information for Michigan starting with the Northwest Ordinance enacted on July 11th, 1787.  This was the federal law for governing all territory north of the Ohio River.  Then we need to review the startling history of the two conventions held in Michigan in 1836 wherein the established political class actions in September sparked a grassroots response in December, wherein the statutory enactments of the Convention from September were OVERTURNED.  Why?  Well Michiganders in 1836 knew well their rights were endowed by God, not a politically corrupted cadre of public servants who orchestrated the assembly that met in September of 1836.

We need to read the Michigan State constitution enacted in October 1835.  Then we need to trace the deliberated changes that diminished the will of the State Citizens over the next 130 years which resulted in the Progressive (statist) Constitution of 1963.  The Constitution of 1963 diminished our standing as State Citizens, and empowered the political class sitting under the State Capitol dome.

Now 174 years later few Michiganders comprehend the historical impact of the actions that occurred from May 1835 to December of 1836.

This is why we here in the Tea Party of Michigan Groups, need to learn the rich political history of Michigan.  Here in Michigan, there was a time, as is now, when the State Citizens stood together to assert their God Given Unalienable Rights to command the offices of the Government.  Today, the Offices of Government have successfully rewritten the history of Michigan to support their Statist Creed.

The spontaneity of the Grass roots resurgence here in Michigan sparked by Glen Beck, and the Tea Party Protests has the political class scurrying about looking for ways to co-opt our reawakening to liberty.

The solution sits under the State Capitol Dome.  The State elected political bureaucracy enacts State (State plan) legislation in order to secure federal funding for administering state welfare programs.  These programs are then managed by local state employees, and overseen by federal employees.  We need to elect Michiganders whose first job is to repeal all the State Plans starting with Public Act 1 of 1936, followed by Public Act 280 of 1939 as the first steps to reasserting Michigan State Sovereignty.  These two state plans were the first federally funded state legislation that disenfranchised our Liberty as Michiganders.

Starting with Public Act 1 of 1936, the State legislature willingly and knowingly imposed a slew of new excise taxes which constructively enabled the state polity to feed at the federal trough of political corruption.  Today, Michigan, once the Automotive Capitol of the World, is now an empty shell, where the State Polity declares a fiscal crisis routinely every calendar year to substantiate their ever increasing tax burden, to support their ideologically driven welfare state of Tax and Take.

So, to restate the facts, we need to relearn our Political heritage here in Michigan, so we may then know how to politically overcome the governmental corruption that sits under the State Capitol Dome.  Contrary to what the political class would like us to believe, the solution is not in Washington D.C., for without a compliant state political class sitting under the State Capitol dome, the federal enactments have no force of law, within the political boundaries of Michigan, and the other states of the United States of America.  Read Article I § 8 of the Constitution of the United States for the United States of America

Federal legislation is constitutionally limited, and this singular constitutional fact is what is not taught in the State Controlled educational system herein the lands of the Wolverine.

The Constitution of the United States for the United States of America is a statute of limitations imposed upon the Federal Government by the States of America.

Concurrently the State Constitution is a statute of limitations authored by Michiganders to limit the reach of the State Government.  Compare the first state constitution enacted in 1835, to today's edited version enacted in 1863.  Take note what is missing and what was editorially changed to empower the political class of the welfare state.




In convention, begun at the city of Detroit, on the second Monday of May, in the year one thousand eight hundred and thirty five:


We, the PEOPLE of the territory of Michigan, as established by the Act of Congress of the Eleventh day of January, in the year one thousand eight hundred and five, in conformity to the fifth article of the ordinance providing for the government of the territory of the United States, North West of the River Ohio, believing that the time has arrived when our present political condition ought to cease, and the right of self-government be asserted; and availing ourselves of that provision of the aforesaid ordinance of the congress of the United States of the thirteenth day of July, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven, and the acts of congress passed in accordance therewith, which entitle us to admission into the Union, upon a condition which has been fulfilled, do, by our delegates in convention assembled, mutually agree to form ourselves into a free and independent state, by the style and title of "The State of Michigan," and do ordain and establish the following constitution for the government of the same.



Political power.

First.  All political power is inherent in the people.

Right of the people.

2. Government is instituted for the protection, security, and benefit of the people; and they have the right at all times to alter or reform the same, and to abolish one form of government and establish another, whenever the public good requires it.

No exclusive privileges.

3. No man or set of men are entitled to exclusive or separate privileges.

Take note how the Constitution of 1963 empowered the state political class, by empowering the state legislature.  Contrast the first three clauses of the 1835 Constitution to the first three clauses of the 1963 document.  The change is dynamic, as the 1963 document empowers the will of the State Government. 




We, the people of the State of Michigan, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of freedom,

and earnestly desiring to secure these blessings undiminished to ourselves and our posterity, do

ordain and establish this constitution.


Declaration of Rights

§ 1 Political power.

Sec. 1.  All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their equal benefit, security and protection.

History: Const. 1963, Art. I, §1, Eff. Jan. 1, 1964.

Former Constitution: See Const. 1908, Art. II, §1.

§ 2 Equal protection; discrimination.

Sec. 2.  No person shall be denied the equal protection of the laws; nor shall any person be denied the enjoyment of his civil or political rights or be discriminated against in the exercise

thereof because of religion, race, color or national origin. The legislature shall implement this section by appropriate legislation.

History: Const. 1963, Art. I, §2, Eff. Jan. 1, 1964.

§ 3 Assembly, consultation, instruction, petition.

Sec. 3.  The people have the right peaceably to assemble, to consult for the common good, to instruct their representatives and to petition the government for redress of grievances.

We here in America, and Michigan itself, have been grossly misled by a self servicing political class at the federal and state level; they plunder our liberty, by imposing unbearable taxes, to fund their progressive (statist collective socialist programs of administrative control) ideology which directly suborns our Liberty as Ordained by God.

"Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right, from the frame of their nature, to knowledge, as their great Creator, who does nothing in vain, has given them understandings, and a desire to know; but besides this, they have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge; I mean, of the characters and conduct of their rulers."

-- John Adams (Dissertation on Canon and Feudal Law, 1765)

  1. Tea Party Patriots be loud and proud!


    (It's still legal - and always God-honoring - to air messages like the following. See Ezekiel 3:18-19. In light of government backing of raunchy behavior (such offenders were even executed in early America!), maybe the separation we really need is the "separation of raunch and state"!)

    In Luke 17 in the New Testament, Jesus said that one of the big "signs" that will happen shortly before His return to earth as Judge will be a repeat of the "days of Lot" (see Genesis 19 for details). So gays are actually helping to fulfill this same worldwide "sign" (and making the Bible even more believable!) and thus hurrying up the return of the Judge! They are accomplishing what many preachers haven't accomplished! Gays couldn't have accomplished this by just coming out of closets into bedrooms. Instead, they invented new architecture - you know, closets opening on to Main Streets where little kids would be able to watch naked men having sex with each other at festivals in places like San Francisco (where their underground saint - San Andreas - may soon get a big jolt out of what's going on over his head!). Thanks, gays, for figuring out how to bring back our resurrected Saviour even quicker!

    [If you would care to learn about the depraved human "pigpen" that regularly occurs in Nancy Pelosi's district in California, Google "Zombietime" and click on "Up Your Alley Fair" in the left column. And to think - horrors - that she is only two levels away from being President!]
