Most Americans know that Thomas Paine aroused revolutionary thoughts in the minds of U.S. Founders from all walks of life via his thought-provoking Common Sense. The brilliant treatise exposed the evil of usurping nobility afflicted with notions of hereditary privilege. However, most Americans have no clue that Paine closed his argument for Revolution via Four Letters On Interesting Subjects written between May 22 and July 2, 1776, just days prior to the Declaration of Independence on July 4. At the close of Letter III, Paine makes reference to the "species of useless pomp" that included King George and his Court of Corporatecrafters and demonic Christiancrafters always wed as an evil adulturous political cabal: "As to Corporations themselves, they are without exception so many badges of kingly tyranny, and tend, like every other species of useless pomp, to the oppression and impoverishment of the place, without one single advantage arising from them. They keep up a perpetual spirit of distinction and faction, engross emoluments and advatages to themselves, which ought to be employed to better purposes, and generally get into quarrels and lawsuits with the other part of the inhabitants. They diminish the freedom of every place where they exist....But of all Corporations that of Philadelphia is the most obnoxious, its power resembling that of an hermaphrodite, or is at least a kind of aristocratical corporation made hereditary by adoption." By definition and in letter and spirit the Declaration of Independence is a deistical Founding Document of the United States affirming Deism as true theology in rejection of all man-contrived religioncraft as false theology. U.S. Founders were dedicated as "one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another [the evil "species of useless pomp], and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal station [in life] to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them...." At the constitutional convention James Madison, President4, heard petitions from different sects of Christians supporting a Bill of Rights mandating that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of relilgion...." Presiding over the constitutional convention, Madison observed: "Rulers who wished to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not. Such a government will be best supported by protecting every citizen in the enjoyment of his religion, by neither invading the equal rights of any sect, nor suffering any sect to invade those of another....It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties...Who does not see that the same authority which can establish Christianity, in exclusion of all other religions may establish with the same ease any particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all other sects?" But the ink had yet to dry on the Constitution when Thomas Jefferson, President3, heard and reported on a treasonous affair: "Would you believe it possible that in this country there should be high & important characters who need your lessons in republicanism, & who do not heed them? It is but too true that we have a sect preaching up & pouting after an English constitution of king, lords, & commons, & whose heads are itching for crowns, coronets & mitres. But our people, my good friend, are firm and unanimous in their principles of republicanism & there is no better proof of it than that they love what you write and read it with delight [from Rights of Man]." TJ Letter of June 19, 1792 to Thomas Paine. The re-usurpation of power begins between wed Corporatecrafters and demonic Christiancrafters. Part II to follow.
