    Restore a lawful Constitutional government. Most people are not aware of how it is designed to work, because in a brilliantly played out coup d'etat, the Supreme Court threw out our Constitution as the "Law of the land" that it says it is, and replaced it with British Common Law that gave government TOTAL power. Today, in spite of existing documentary evidence showing otherwise, students in school are taught lies about their own history and their own government.

    >Building roads for the delivery of mail (not building interestate highway systems for the benefit of commerce)
    >Support the useful arts and sciences BY CREATING PATENT LAW - not by giving grants and/or research
    > Regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes (not regulate commerce inside states and not regulate a minimum wage)
    > To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof (not to give private bankers the right to invent money into existence and lend it to government with interest)
    >To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States (bankers counterfeit money)
    > To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;
    >To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;
    >To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water; (not give that power to the president)
    >To provide and maintain a Navy;
    > To make Rules for the the land and naval Forces;
    > To make rules for the Militia
