Can “Public” Government Be “Private”?

The following text is quoted from the American Bar Association (ABA) Constitution and Bylaws, 2013-14 (LINK):

Article 2. Definitions and General Provisions
2.1(d) “Association” means the American Bar Association, an Illinois Corporation incorporated on December 7, 1992, or the American Bar Association, an unincorporated association of members of the legal profession. . .”

§21.1 Application for Membership Any eligible person may file an application for membership. . .”

§21.8 Scale of Dues. Except as otherwise provided, a member of the Association must pay dues in the amount prescribed by the House of Delegates. . .”

So, the ABA is an association — basically a club. The association offers membership. However, an application for membership is required. Applications, of course, can be approved or rejected. So, the ABA membership is exclusive to approved persons.

And as you might expect, as outlined under §3.3 Termination of Membership, the ABA Constitution and Bylaws demands that members follow association rules.

It is clear that the ABA (and its state subsidiaries) are private associations that collect membership dues and enforce association rules upon members  — as demonstrated from the ABA constitution and bylaws.

Do you have an ABA membership card or pay annual dues? Are you included on the ABA membership directory? Are you on the ABA holiday mailing list?

If you are not a member of the ABA (or any other private association), do the rules of that association apply to you? You can probably guess that answer and perhaps we will explore that question in detail in the future.

But the point of this post is to introduce you to a situation (private entities) that has been intentionally hidden from you.

Here are a few privately held entities (click the pictures to enlarge):

U.S. Supreme Court

and, the Internal Revenue Service

and, the Federal Reserve

and, the Social Security Administration

There are, of course, many more examples as there are thousands of agencies, departments and bureaus across the land.

In July 2016, this Government exposed the Democrat and Republican political parties to be 527 organizations masquerading as national political parties (LINK).

So ask yourself: can “privately held entities”, often in pursuit of profit, really be “public government” in pursuit of domestic tranquility and justice?
