Comments From Lindsey Springer
Lindsey Springer here and I rise herein to point out the following for you continued consideration and education:
The definition of U.S. Citizen in this chart must preclude any "State" other than one of the 50 States from being within its intended meaning. Many places in Federal Law Congress defines "State" to include places other than the 50 States (sometimes with or without them). It is a must that people of the several States make this correction in their constitutional understanding to then allow the information about where one must be born, to achieve employment in the highest government job on Earth, being in its proper context. I also wish to say thank you today to the Federal Reserve System because without that failure most of America would not have awakened in the recent past to the Constitution. Just to stretch this exchange. Please each of you take a look at the difference between a "District" and a "State." Congress was only enumerated with limited judicial powers (inferior courts). One of the main reasons why the Federal Reserve and "Congress" achieved their tyranical usurpations institutionally is because stopping them was usually attempted before a appointed for life Judge on the payrol of the United States Congress who was not about to tell Congress no! However, if you grab onto a United States Judge only has "District" authority to which he was placed then you will see that you are the answer to one question away from beginning to build the Country of 50 States United back to its proper place. Ask yourself is the United States District of Illinois in the State of Illinois? Is the State of Illinois in the United States District of Illinois? If you will read the words very carefully you will clearly see how to pull the speck from your neighbors eye. Read these words:
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
These are the words of the Tenth Amendment. This single line sentence above is the reason Electors are to be appointed according to the laws of each of the 50 States. The power to appoint Electors falls under the "are reserved to the States respectively" part of this Amendment. This power does not fall under the "to the people" clause.
How people get involved with the election of Obama, McCain, Biden and Palin, as Electors in Chief, is when States legislate the appointment of Electors by holding an Election on November 4, 2008.
"We deal here not with an ordinary election, but with an election for the President of the United States. In Burroughs v. United States, 290 U.S. 534, 545 (1934), we said:
'While presidential electors are not officers or agents of the federal government (In re Green, 134 U.S. 377, 379 [(1890)]), they exercise federal functions under, and discharge duties in virtue of authority conferred by, the Constitution of the United States. The President is vested with the executive power of the nation. The importance of his election and the vital character of its relationship to and effect upon the welfare and safety of the whole people cannot be too strongly stated.'"
quoting BUSH v. GORE 531 U.S. 98, at 112 (2000)
"In most cases, comity and respect for federalism compel us to defer to the decisions of state courts on issues of state law. That practice reflects our understanding that the decisions of state courts are definitive pronouncements of the will of the States as sovereigns. Cf. Erie R. Co. v. Tompkins, 304 U.S. 64 (1938)."
BUSH v. GORE 531 U.S. 98, 112 (2000)
"Of course, in ordinary cases, the distribution of powers among the branches of a State's government raises no questions of federal constitutional law, subject to the requirement that the government be republican in character." BUSH v. GORE 531 U.S. 98, 112 (2000)
"Acting pursuant to its constitutional grant of authority, the Florida Legislature has created a detailed, if not perfectly crafted, statutory scheme that provides for appointment of Presidential electors by direct election. Fla. Stat. Ann. § 103.011 (1992). Under the statute, "[v]otes cast for the actual candidates for President and Vice President shall be counted as votes cast for the presidential electors supporting such candidates." Bush at 116
"The individual citizen has no federal constitutional right to vote for electors for the President of the United States unless and until the state legislature chooses a statewide election as the means to implement its power to appoint members of the Electoral College. U.S. Const., Art. II, § 1. This is the source for the statement in McPherson v. Blacker, 146 U.S. 1, 35 (1892), that the state legislature's power to select the manner for appointing electors is plenary; it may, if it so chooses, select the electors itself, which indeed was the manner used by state legislatures in several States for many years after the framing of our Constitution. Id., at 28-33. History has now favored the voter, and in each of the several States the citizens themselves vote for Presidential electors. When the state legislature vests the right to vote for President in its people, the right to vote as the legislature has prescribed is fundamental; and one source of its fundamental nature lies in the equal weight accorded to each vote and the equal dignity owed to each voter. The State, of course, after granting the franchise in the special context of Article II, can take back the power to appoint electors." Bush at 104
If people are unable or unwilling to keep the United States and its "Districts" separate from each others powers reserved by and for each State (remember Art. I, Section 8, Cl. 17 "over such District not exceeding 10 miles square"), they will never be able to understand how a person is hired as President of the United States of America.
