There has been a LOT of confusion in this process, Pat—- unavoidably so, with the
meanings of words being deliberately obscured and many facets of our history buried
in reams of the most boring verbiage on Earth.
But….here is the skinny of it all, as delved out from the public records we have.
The Forefathers established nation-states in each of the colonies. Nations are
political entities composed of members of Jural Assemblies— unincorporated
associations of people who join together for the purpose of defining and enforcing
local law; and in our case, that means the Common Law of the land, because our
nation-states and our jural assemblies are all land-based and this is the form of law
that our Forefathers chose to operate the land jurisdiction.
States are also political entities “standing for” those nations, created for the purpose
of administration of public works and trusteeship of public resources. So you have
the nation, a political entity structured as an unincorporated association of free
people acting as a Jural Assembly to define and enforce the law, and you have the
state, which is entrusted with providing public services and trusteeship of public
property which is owned “in common”.
The word “state” has another meaning, too, which is the geographic territory in
which the members of the state jural assembly live and over which their authority
A “county” is similarly structured. The word can stand for the organization charged
with administration of public works and trusteeship of public resources within the
boundaries of the geographic territory, or it can mean the literal geographic territory
in which the county jural assembly lives and over which their authority extends.
In the American System, generally speaking, townships make up counties, counties
make up states, and the political power vested in these organic states and their
living people forming their jural assemblies flows upward—- from the bottom up, not
the top down. Continue…
