GLOBAL RESEARCH – On July 4, 1776, America gained independence from Britain. Everything changed but stayed the same under new management – the way the framers planned it.

“We the people,” meant them, not us. They created a government of men, not laws. Property owners alone had rights. Ordinary people didn’t matter, entirely left out.
