...and annulment of our lawful states, along with the congressionally coerced passage of the infamous 14th Amendment. Contrary to the popular belief that it was primarily to give blacks civil rights, the 14th Amendment enslaved us all by replacing our nationalities(states)...

This idea of "congress is the people" is a blatant violation of the original intent of the Constitution -- as can be seen in Federalist Paper #78, "It is not otherwise to be supposed, that the Constitution could intend to enable the representatives of the people to...

The 3rd Reconstruction Act of 1867 was design to force out our republican form of governments (state governments) of the 10 southern states by the U.S. Army and replaced by Military Officers to unlawfully added the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution the following year...
...& created a new political system "De facto" in the several states.
