Ever ask yourself what happened to the Tories? You know, the British-Sympathizers who undermined the patriots?
This is a very important question. They didn’t all disappear after the Revolution. They didn’t all migrate to Nova Scotia. In fact, only a very few of them left this country. So what do you suppose happened to them?
They were allowed to stay as part of the peace settlement and to retain their “personal” property (business property interests). They could even retain their allegiance to the King, if they accepted Territorial Citizenship as U.S. Citizens.
What happened to all the Papists who likewise didn’t support the patriots during the War of Independence?
They stayed here, too. Only they became Municipal “citizens of the United States”. Decades later, they would side with the South in the Civil War and become liable to pay undisclosed War Reparations to the Territorial Government — see Amendment 14 attached to the Corporate Constitution published in 1868.
And stop fussing about the Act of 1871. That is a Red Herring. They were, as foreign subcontractors party to the Constitutions, free to organize their business as they saw fit — so long as they did their duty and stood by their agreements.
Does it matter to you, if your Lawn Care Service is unincorporated or incorporated? No.
The harm that resulted from both the published Corporate Constitution and the Act of 1871 creating a Municipal Corporation for the District of Columbia is entirely in the way that these corporations were used to promote crime and evade constitutional obligations.
In other words, it’s not the fact that these organizations were structured as corporations that caused the problem. Just as with guns, it was the men operating these corporations and using them to commit crimes and evade their constitutional obligations that were and are the problem.
