I posted this just for interest . It's a topic that I have been asked about many times being that my background is in Maritime Law .

I added another good read; link at the bottom of this thread . Treason in Government! Admiralty on Land!! Where's the Water?

I Quote : George Washington, speech of January 7, 1790 in the Boston Independent Chronicle, January 14, 1790

"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action."

Are the Best Parts of America British?

How the U.S. Was Shaped By What It Adopted—and What It Didn't—From the U.K.

If you’ve ever seen close siblings argue, you will get a sense of the relationship between Britain and America—and a sense of the discussion trying to define this relationship at a Smithsonian/Zócalo “What It Means to Be American” event at the British Museum in London.

In front of a full auditorium, a panel of experts challenged, interrupted, and joked with one another in a wide-ranging conversation that covered McDonald’s, gun control, President Obama, and English philosopher John Locke. There was no doubt that America owed a great deal to Britain, but the question of the night was how much it remained influenced by its former overlord.

Panelist Adrian Wooldridge, of The Economist, staked out the position that America remains fundamentally British. But panelists Craig Calhoun, director of the London School of Economics and Political Science; author Erin Moore; and moderator Brooke Masters of the Financial Times—who were all born in America but live now in the U.K.—pointed out the ways that America has forged a very distinctive path since those early British days. Panelist Loyd Grossman, a broadcaster and entrepreneur who was born in America but also has the title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire, was somewhere in the middle—and often defused the tension with wry humor.

“I’m making the case that America is fundamentally a British colony,” Wooldridge said. “… The DNA are British and about the relationship with the British. And everything else is of secondary importance,”

He noted that the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, represented a twist on Locke’s argument that political society exists to protect a person’s life, liberty, and estate. America also inherited Britain’s Protestant religion and common law that set the blueprint for American laws. And when the 13 colonies rejected monarchs, titles, and aristocrats, it was a reaction to the King of England’s rule.

Wooldridge pointed out that when Queen Elizabeth II visited America in 1976 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Revolution, politicians were still falling all over each other to wrangle an invitation to the dinner President Ford was hosting for her. Ford, he noted, thought he’d lose more friends over the queen’s dinner than anything else he’d ever done.

Yep, We the People lost the civil war.

Shortly there after the "crown" established their colony in the District of Columbia.

It was called the District of Columbia act of 1871.

That same year the Indians lost their sovereignty as well.

It was call the Indian Act of 1871, that act ended treaty making with the Indians and Custer was sent to round them up shortly there after.

Columbia is another name for the Mother Goddess also known as ISIS among other names.
