In contemplating the recent move toward the states declaring their sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment, I’ve been doing some reading of the Articles of Confederation and, in particular, how they compare with the Federalist Constitution we wound up with and, with the benefit of some hindsight about the two and, in light of where we have wound up today, I have to say there are some things about the Articles of Confederation that are not only preferable to our Constitution, but which may very well have avoided the situation we now find ourselves in.

One of the main criticisms of the Articles of Confederation has always been that the United States and each of the several states was empowered to coin their own money, thus leading to a situation in which each had its own currency. The objection to this was that it was allegedly an unwieldy system in which disputes often arose between states over the relative exchange rate between the competing currencies.

However, I find this to be the main strength of the Articles, in that, it would have made the silent coup by the international banking cartel impossible. It was the Constitution’s provision for a single currency that made us vulnerable to the criminal overthrow of our nation in 1913 – which was the ultimately successful final attempt at such a coup, after several previous attempts by the moneychangers to establish a central bank. A central bank would be impossible to establish under the Articles of Confederation, as there was no centralized economy under the Articles. This is a significant strength and the main reason the Articles were actually superior to the vision of the Federalists. In fact, there is evidence to support the contention that the Federalists were agents of the British Rothschilds and that they were deliberately steering the United States toward a centralized government for exactly the purpose of paving the way for a central bank.

Aside from this key difference, there are some other features of the Articles that would have helped to prevent the current police state from ever forming. Among these was the fact that, under the Articles, there was no President. There was only a unicameral Congress. Admittedly, the bicameral Congress we’ve had since 1788 provides more checks and balances than a unicameral Congress did, however, without a chief executive, this is a minor point, as there was no opportunity for a dictatorial leader to emerge under the Articles of Confederation.

Another feature of the Articles of Confederation was that there was no Supreme Court. Disputes between the several states were adjudicated by Congress. If we had retained that system, it might very well have prevented the corruption we’ve seen occur with a Supreme Court.

Yet another strength of the Articles was that any amendments to the Articles had to be agreed to by all the states, as opposed to our present Constitution, which can be altered by agreement between only three fourths of the states – a situation that is, basically, tyrannical toward the remaining one fourth of the states.

Although our Constitution supposedly prohibits an income tax by requiring that all taxes be apportioned according to population, as we’ve seen, this was subverted quite easily by the international banking cartel in 1913 when they established – by illegal means – the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution in order to pay the interest on our Federal Reserve currency, which goes directly to the bankers. This situation might have been avoided entirely by the Articles of Confederation, which provided for all taxes to be apportioned by Congress and collected by the states. In addition to this provision, the unanimity of the states required to amend the Articles, as stated above, would have prevented any possibility of an income tax being created at all and the fact that the states collected taxes would have prevented the bankers’ collection agency, known as the Internal Revenue Service, from ever existing.

Given all this, we can see, in hindsight, why the Rothschild/Freemason/Illuminati agents who steered us into a Federalized government in 1788 were so adamant about doing so. Had this been prevented and had we kept the Articles of Confederation, the history of the United States, as well as the world, would have been entirely different – and, most likely, entirely better, as well.
