“Liberty of Conscious’ is a natural not a political right. No one can punish thought. However, if a thought is criminal and is expressed with criminal intent then the law can punished the action. Additionally, the power of the Social Compact is the power to create, control, and maintain society. This includes the power to declare who can live within the boundaries of the community; who has access to public office, and what rights a person has, although natural rights like self-preservation cannot be denied. America’s Social Compact declares that American’s receive their rights from a Creator and moral rectitude from the Supreme Judge. Many of the first state constitutions limited access to public office through a religious oath, and this religious oath continued in some States until an unwise decision of the Supreme Court in the 1960s which removed State rights to control who has access to local government. This has allowed a dangerous insurrection (against Christian values) to use the power of public authority to undermine not just the values of America’s sacred religion but literally to overthrow America’s social compact the Declaration of 1776.

Human Rights versus Inalienable God granted Rights
American law does not recognized human rights ! American law recognized ONLY “inalienable rights” as granted by the Creator, and a moral rectitude according to the Supreme Judge of the world. This according to America’s founding document the Declaration of 1776. Those who counter America’s constitutional mandate are an insurrection against the life, liberty, and happiness of the American people. They are threat to the American way of life. A danger to the American family. A threat that must be taken seriously and dealt with in the public forum as well as in the criminal and political process.
Note: Plato said that God is written into our laws. and such is true for America with its social compact, the Declaration of Independence, which declares that God is our Creator and Supreme Judge. A social compact controls the legal social rights between citizens and between states. Those who can not uphold America’s social compact that recognizes God can not be a member citizen of the compact.
“…a covenant gives ground of civil action and claim to a people…” Samuel Rutherford, Lex, Rex,
Society is established by contact and a contract is a covenant. I am covenanted, that is, I have a contract with every citizen and every citizen has a contract with me, and by this contract we form a political union; we form a civil society. A social contract specifies the foundation and source of our rights and obligations; it is a testimony of faith, a belief in specific principles. If I or my neighbor fail to uphold these established principles based on faith, then the contract is violated and our political union is dissolved.
Justice Clark ” Nothing can destroy a government more quickly than its failure to observe its own laws, or worse, its disregard of the charter of its own existence.” Mapp v Ohio
Sidney “… no safety where there is no strength, no strength without union, no union with[out] justice; no justice where faith and truth, in accomplishing public and private contracts, is wanting.” 432
Cicero “ Well then, for a man to take something from his neighbour and to profit by his neighbour’s loss is more contrary to Nature than is death or poverty or pain or anything else that can affect either our person or our property. For, in the first place, injustice is fatal to social life and fellowship between man and man. For, if we are so disposed that each, to gain some personal profit, will defraud or injure his neighbour, then those bonds of human society, which are most in accord with Nature’s laws, must of necessity be broken.” B3.21-22
In America, my contract with every other citizens is called the “Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen States” and its stated rights and required obligations,its very word, is enforced through an instrument called a constitution. Our mutual contract, the Declaration of 1776, declares that we have rights that are inalienable because they come form higher source, our Creator, and it also informs me that as a nation our “rectitude” or moral standard is also from a divine source, the Supreme Judge of the world. Our social compact informs me of what I may expect from my neighbors and what my neighbors ought to expect from me.
“fundamental principles of liberty and justice which lie at the base of all our civil and political institutions,” Powell v. Alabama
Accordingly, I have a right to have the name of God declared in our public councils because our social compact declares that our political society is based on the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” If you or any member of society deny me this right or if I deny you this right, by my actions or suffrage, our compact is violated and our union is dissolved. Also, according to our mutual compact, I have a right to “inalienable rights” as granted by our Creator, and if out of ignorance, apathy or negligence you deny me my right or if I deny you this right, then our civil society is no more. Again, according to our agreement, I have a right that our communities base their “rectitude” according to our Supreme Judge, and if you are ignorant, apathetic or negligent in your personal commitment to my right then our contract is broken and we are no longer members of the same community.
Today, folly follows the inclinations of American’s sovereign “We the People” who daily trample under foot their commitment to each other according to their social compact, and with blindness to its blessings and with failure to understand its value, they actually seek to throw away a union based on mutual consent upon specific immutable principles. How dangerous is it to undermine the contract that gave us unity, prosperity, and blessings, and that made our towns and cities the example to others and raised the envy of the world. A compact that guided our public councils in moral restraint and rectitude.
If secular humanists and Atheists in America hate America’s social compact, the Declaration of Independence, and want a new one without God, Creator or Supreme Judge, I will not be a member. I will not agree to serve a different god or have man as god as the highest authority in our public councils. I will not be a party to a compact that exchanges a moment of prayer to God for a moment of silence to the gay community in our public schools. I will not join you in electing to office those who believe in evolution when our social compact says “all men are created…” I will not be in an agreement with you that sanctions diversity of lifestyles while condemning marriage between a man and woman. I am perfectly satisfied with the social compact, the agreement, that our forefathers had made and left as an American inheritance, but I am not satisfied that it is being violated by citizens in the compact who fail to know my rights or the God of those rights. and who insult my heritage, and attack the character of our founders who gave us blessing after blessing, and these insults come from people who never read their letters nor considered their character in light of the age they were born. If you do not what to continue in our social compact then consider your violations of it a dissolution of our political union, as for me, I will uphold my duties and obligations with those who want to continue in the prosperity, safety, and decency of one nation under God.
Mr. Justice Miller “There are limitations on such power, which grow out of the essential nature of all free governments, implied reservations of individual rights, without which the social compact could not exist, and which are respected by all governments entitled to the name.”Loan Ass’n v. Topeka BQ case
Note: Justice Miller touches upon the legal implications of a social compact but American society within the framework of it public discourse and law have failed to recognize the great scope of rights imbued in their social compact, the Declaration of 1776,. America has failed in the literal application of rights and obligations of the mutual agreement. As Locke says a social compact creates a body politic. It is a mutual agreement between citizens in order to establish the protection of their rights, liberty and property, among other rights, under a government of their choosing and under laws made by their consent. By membership, the people loose some rights accorded in the state of nature. By removing themselves from the state of nature to a state of society, justice is removed from the individual enforcement and given to public enforcement by selected magistrates and officials. The the decision of the majority is the decision of all, and those who disagree with a majority decision can only change a law by changing the decision of the majority. Additionally, the social compact guides and limits civil authority. Since we become members of body politic for the protection of life, liberty and property. Our social compact is guided by those principles. For example, a compact restricts civil authority from taking private property from A and giving it to B for private use because A joined civil society in order to protect his property. Civil authority cannot even take private property from A and give it to the public for its use unless the people enumerate this public right through the constitution. Additionally, since A entered into a civil society for the protection of the liberty, civil authority cannot jail A excepts according law. See Declaration’s inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
The Declaration of Independence, our nation’s social compact, encompasses the fundamental rights of every American, but as legal instrument and judicial tool and body of law, it is completely neglected by American courts and legislatures. Furthermore, those who signed the Declaration of Independence were Christians who’s God, Creator and Supreme Judge of the Declaration of 1776 was the God of the Bible. Our charter declares inalienable rights from a Creator and rectitude from the Supreme Judge creating a legal tie and an immediate joining to the law of Moses and the Apostles.
John of Salisbury writes that the justice consists not only in not doing harm, but also in preventing the doing of harm, and this as a the duty to humanity. It is high axiom that when one does harm, one is giving personal consent to an injury, and when when one fails to impede the doing of harm, one becomes a servant of injustice. 62
Hamilton in the Federalist Papers explained the dangers of a divided Union. Each nation has its own set of jealousies, agendas, and interests, and these will collide against others nation. This was evidenced on the European continent where France, England, and Spain were always at war. George Washington’s in his Farewell Address says explicitly that our Union is the source of our happiness and safety. In summery, a divided America will be embroiled in commercial competitions, competing armies, and intrigue under foreign influence resulting in continuous conflicts among the States. The solution is not division, but restoration of those principles that made the Union of States possible. This first principle of our Unity is also the first principle of criminal justice which is an accurate definition of good and evil, right and wrong. The Federal Union was founded upon a the common law that instituted the law of Moses, and this law is upheld by our the Declaration of 1776 which declares that God is the Creator of inalienable rights and Supreme Judge of our rectitude. This principle which is American law cannot be left a dead letter. Factions in America may oppose it, but unity requires it. Jesus said no nation can stand divided but will fall, and today America is divided in Christian and Secular camps, and this division will split the American Union unless sensible Americans enforce the legal obligation of its social compact, the Declaration of 1776.
James F. Wilson summarized what he considered to be the purpose of the act as follows, when he introduced the bill in the House of Representatives: Civil Rights Act of 1866:
“The definition given to the term “civil rights” in Bouvier’s Law Dictionary is very concise, and is supported by the best authority. It is this: “Civil rights are those which have no relation to the establishment, support, or management of government.” From this it is easy to gather an understanding that civil rights are the natural rights of man; and these are the rights which this bill proposes to protect every citizen in the enjoyment of throughout the entire dominion of the Republic.”
Note; James Wilson writes that civil rights are natural rights. The understanding of natural/civil rights is different than political rights. For example, in or out of constitution society, man has the natural right to self-preservation by self defense or by earning a living. However, political rights are not inherent rights but privileges extending from a social compact. Political rights come from membership in a political society. Yet, membership is not a right, it is an agreement between two or more people to uphold the rules and principles of the agreed social order. Examples of privileges of membership is suffrage and access to public office. American political societies are defined by the Declaration of 1776. To access membership into the American Union one must agree to uphold the principles of the American social order: inalienable rights are granted by the Creator, the national rectitude is determined by the Supreme Judge, and as a Union we are established according to the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The American Pledge of Allegiance supports America’s social contract and charter the Declaration of 1776 which declares that God is Creator of our inalienable rights and Supreme Judge of national rectitude. Let us remind ourselves that a social compact is a mutual agreement among members. Let us remind ourselves that those who cannot uphold America’s social compact are not members but an insurrection, a rebellion against the rules of the agreed social order. Let us differentiate between members and nonmembers by requiring a citizen-freemen’s oath that upholds the principles of our social order as defined in our social compact. Article VIII to the US Constitution requires a citizen oath for membership into our American Union. Read it at CHCAFE.WORDPRESS.com
America has a social compact called the Declaration of
Independence. This is a mutual binding charter between states and
between individuals in the American Union. This charter requires
faith that we as a nation are under the “Laws of Nature and Natures
God,” that all men are created (not evolved), that Americans receive
inalienable rights from a Creator, and that their moral rectitude is
defined by the Supreme Judge of the world. Those who fail to uphold
these principles are not only in opposition to the pillars of republicanism, but are in violation of the American agreement. Let no American citizen continue is the darkness of ignorance of their sacred rights and obligations but let all enter the light of illumination as reveal in the immutable truths penned by Thomas Jefferson.Take the American Pledge…
It is the first duty of society to establish such rules and obligations that all citizens may in good conscience be able to conform and to obey. America’s charter, the Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson, sets out those incorruptible principles that establishes the American Society in the American Union. This uniquely American compact is a binding ch…arter, a mutual agreement between citizens and between states. I exhort you, leaders and laymen, to recommit yourself to those enduring precepts of civil society that establishes those rights and privileges of citizenship by taking the following pledge taken from the Declaration of 1776.
I pledge to uphold the American States and Union as being under the authority of the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.”
I pledge to uphold every member’s inalienable right of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness as granted by the Creator.
I pledge to declare that every member is created and equal.
I pledge to uphold privately and publicly a rectitude as determined by the Supreme Judge of the world.
If you cannot with earnest conviction make this pledge of allegiance to America’s Unanimous Declaration of 1776, I encourage you to call upon that Divine Being who forms the hearts of all men so His benevolent Nature may illuminate the soul with the divine light of understanding so knowledge may be added to faith and faith becoming conviction may produce good deeds according to those immutable principles of liberty which all sensible men desire and hope.
