    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibit the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

    Posse Comitatus (Latin: "power or force of the county"), ancient English institution consisting of the shire's force of able-bodied private citizens summoned to assist in maintaining public order. Citizens in every County of the nation have available to them, the Law of the Posse Comitatus. For instance, let us suppose that citizens of California decide to protect themselves from unlawful activities by persons on the public payroll. According to the the California Constitution Article 1, Section 24, "All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their protection, security and benefit and they have the right to alter or reform it when the public good may require." Further, in Article 1, Section 24, it says: "Rights guaranteed by this (California) Constitution, are not dependent on those guaranteed by the United States Constitution" - and the California Constitution expressly provides in Article 111, Section 1, that the United States Constitution is the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND! (It doesn't say Statues enacted by any Legislature)

    It is clear from reading the Constitution of the State that citizens have the right to impanel Citizen's Grand Juries to indict and even convict anyone, including persons on the public payroll, for crimes and violations of the Constitution and constitutional rights of citizens of the State. In fact, a Citizen's Grand Jury, upon investigation and findings, may declare a person to be an "OUTLAW". In this event such person may be apprehended by any citizen of the State or by any member of any Citizen's Posse, by any means necessary. The Law of Posse Comitatus provides that when an Outlaw is apprehended, he should be taken to the most populated intersection of a township and there be hung by the neck at high-noon, with the body remaining until dark, as an example to those who would subvert the law.

    As the apostle Paul says in his epistle to the Romans, every Christian citizen is responsible to uphold the law and when persons on the public payroll, or who are civil servents who have sworn to uphold the Constitution - which is the supreme law of the land - FAIL in that duty, they shall receive themselves 'damnation'. When they fail, then it is the duty of Christians to condemn them by both the spirit and the letter of the Constitution which under their pretense of defending, they are SUBVERTING!

    Is it possible that the Law of Posse Comitatus was provided by our Father for this purpose?

    Since we, the people, the upright members of the body politic, are the rulers and masters in this self-governing REPUBLIC, is it right that our public servants should attempt to REVERSE ROLES with us? Is it right that they should tell us that THEY are the MASTERS and that WE are now the SERVANTS? If so - WHAT IS THE FINAL SOLUTION?

    Title 18 US Code, PART I, Chapter 67,
    § 1385, The Posse Comitatus Act
    § 1385. Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus

    Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
