Judge Anna von Reitz
Times being what they are, and the expenses of The Living Law Firm being what they are, I can’t afford to offer a big reward (on the off chance that I have to pay up) but I am sick and tired of having to argue about this with knotheads and I will pay $100 of my own money to anyone who can prove that a singular national “Republic” exists.
Yes, there was/is a “Grand Army of the Republic” — the Union Army during the Civil War.
Yes, there was/is a song called “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”.
Yes, there is an oblique reference in “The Pledge of Allegiance” to “the Republic for which it stands.”
Yes, Ben Franklin is reported to have told a by-stander when asked what kind of government we have — “A Republic. If you can keep it.”
And yes, we are guaranteed a “republican form of government” in the Constitution.
We even have “The Supreme Republican Declaration of the United Colonies of America”.
But nowhere can I find in any of this any substantiating proof that “a” Republic was ever formed on this Continent to represent all the state republics.
Instead, what I find is a consistent reference to our Federation of States, The United States of America —- the unincorporated version. And it only operates in international jurisdiction.
If any of you researchers out there can shed light on this question, please weigh in. The monetary reward is slight, but the satisfaction of proving me wrong might be worth something, right?
I’ve looked. I can’t find it. And until some proof surfaces —and despite the popular references and belief that “a” Republic exists— I say “the” Republic is the Civil War Era equivalent of an Urban Myth.
Many of our researchers are hurting financially and having a hard time keeping the lights on and the printer ink in stock. They are asking me for help and so I have to turn to all of you reading this.
If you can see how important it is for us to know the truth about our history and government — and be able to prove it — please consider “joining the party” and doing some research yourself or helping to support the expenses of those who do. We take donations to the cause via my PayPal account:
