Excerpt* from American Popular Sovereignty @2019 by Randall E. White.
“Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand.”
— Colin Powell
Most Americans attend public schools. The civics education classes in these schools teach us that there are three branches of government (the legislative, executive and judicial branches), and that these branches function as a check or balance to each other. The concept of checks and balances, as taught in public schools suggests that each branch of government has some measure of influence over the other branches and may choose to block procedures of the other branches.
What the author and his associates in the field of litigation have learned through experience is that behind the scenes in government, public actors regularly engage in off-the-record communications, both within and between the three representative branches of government.
Within these off-the-record communications, elected and appointed public officials routinely conspire and collude with each other concerning their involvement in executing unconstitutional policies and practices. These public representatives communicate covertly for the purposes of maintaining the appearance of proper legal and ethical conduct, and avoiding getting caught in illicit activities, including receiving illicit personal economic gain, which is often institutionalized within the corrupted system.
The net effect of these covert communications and collusion between the three representative branches of government is that they actually work together in concert to implement unconstitutional policies and practices for the purpose of receiving illicit gain while retaining the sham appearance of independence and legitimate governmental functioning. In other words, behind the scenes, the three representative branches of government do not, in reality, act as a check or balance to each other.
Public representatives engage in illicit conduct because they can. It pays very well, and presently we have no functional restraints in place to curb the illicit conduct, so the odds of getting caught are minimal. The problem will continue until we address the issue, because the reward for illicit governmental conduct far outweighs the risk.
The official myth that most of us have been taught all of our lives in public schools and reinforced by the corporate-owned news media about the alleged system of checks and balances between the three branches of representative government is in reality official disinformation and pure political theater devised as a cover for public corruption and its role in aiding and abetting organized corporate crime. This situation brings us to the obvious logical question, “What can we do about it?” Well, glad you asked!
You will learn, as the author eventually did after more than a decade of studying law, that knowledge of popular sovereignty is the key to holding our public representatives accountable to their oath of office and to the citizens’ public will, and to unlocking government sanctioned remedy. In law, remedy is defined as a legal means of enforcing a right or of providing redress. Redress means to adjust a situation to make the matter of concern fair or equal, including compensation for a legal wrong.
