Questioning the Validity of the National Debt*


In violation of Section 4 of the 14th Amendment

On July 9, 1868 the 14th amendment to the United States Constitution was officially ratified. Hidden within this amendment is wording that enshrined the federal government with perpetual debt.

In recent years, partly in response to the growing federal debt, people have begun protesting in opposition to the debt racked up by Congress. In late 2008 a group in Phoenix, AZ began the “It’s not my debt” campaign. In response to this campaign a small political party passed a resolution that reads: “The national committee of the Boston Tea Party hereby calls upon both houses of the US Congress to promptly pass,and calls upon the state legislatures to ratify, a constitutional amendment repealing section 4 of the 14th amendment, prohibiting future indebtedness and deficit spending on the part of the federal government, and repudiating all federal government debt and debt service obligations accrued prior to the ratification of said amendment.”

The federal debt gained some mainstream media attention last year when Congress was debating whether or not and by how much to raise the debt ceiling. As predicted, Congress did not say, “No, we will not raise the debt ceiling.” Members of Congress came to a compromise that increased the debt ceiling, further inflated the currency and has continued to enslave tax-payers with a perpetual debt that will never be paid off.

In the 144 years since the ratification of this amendment, I don’t know of any attempt to hold a national rally to publicly question the validity of the national debt. On the anniversary of the enshrinement of the national debt, activists from across the country will gather in public to question the validity of the national debt.

It is past time for Congress to admit publicly the debt will never be paid off and repudiate the debt, because it is invalid. An alternate proposal for eliminating the debt, is to eliminate the federal government that created the debt. Again, not an easy task, though one that will likely occur at some point in the future; either being replaced by a new national government or with a total collapse of these United States of America. There are many theories of what a post USA North America would look like, though most agree that there will be at least 8 new nations. I’d prefer to see a peaceful split of the country rather than a violent rebellion.

  1. Today, we are programmed to think that anyone who questions the 14th Amendment
    is a “White Supremacist”. Those who want it repealed are thought to want to bring
    back slavery of black people. That's it plain and simple- or is it? You can actually
    trace back our current behemoth of a Federal bureacracy and Stalin-esque US Police state
    created by the PATRIOT ACT back to the 14th Amendment. It was at that time that
    there was consolidation of an obscene, authoritarian power at the Federal level.
    Today, what the Federal government really, really fears is anyone who would have the gall to say that a violent rebellion would be far more effective than a peaceful rebellion.
    This is alluded to reams of “Counter-Terror” legislation and think-tank drivel that's been
    produced at an alarming rate for over the last ten years. The documentation is full
    of refernces to “Muslim extremism”, but it's really being applied to any speech used
    outside the two mainstream political parties. Notice how the issue of endless foreign wars isn't even
    an issue on the campaign trail for 2012? How quaint. It was done by design. However,
    these endless foreign wars are widely talked about in original Tea Party and Original Occupy

  2. Any debt that cannot be paid off (a contract that cannot be culminated) is an act of fraud and is void from its inception. The Fed creates money in the amount of the principal of Treasury securities that are received from the U.S. Treasury (collateral) as authorized by Congress. The promise is to pay back the principal PLUS interest. The interest has not been created and it does not exist. The debt cannot be paid; the National debt is perpetual and must endlessly increase.

    The Supreme court has distinguished government contractors from federal agencies: “A critical element in distinguishing an agency from a contractor is the power of the Federal Government to control the detailed physical performance of the contractor.” United States v Orleans, 425 US 807, 814 (1976). The BOG appears to be totally void of detailed government control and the status as an agency may be vulnerable to attack.

    The BOG makes responses to FOIA inquiries, such as they are. They had claimed the (12) FR banks were not subject to FOIA requests but that changed in the 2nd circuit. Ref. Fox News Network v BOG of FR, 601 F3d 158 (2nd Cir, 2010). Other circuits may have to fight for bank record access.

    The Treasury security (collateral) received from the government is never redeemed; it is sold at the auctions along with securities to redeem maturing securities in the public area. All accounting of auction funds is handled by the FRBNY. If the money from the auction went to the government, there would be no inflation nor would there be any increase in the national debt. The money from the collateral cannot go to the government. The big question is where does the FRBNY send a trillion dollars annually from the Treasury auctions that appears to legally belong to the government. Ref., RIP OFF BY THE FEDERAL RESERVE.

  3. Finally after 100 years of counterfeit money the voice of reason!

    How in God's name could a debt to an organizations that is illegal in the first place, and that counterfeits the money that is loaned ever be considered valid?
