Waging War without Congress First Declaring It

By: Matt R. Erickson

Waging War without Congress First Declaring It examines American actions involving Korea and Vietnam, which were the first major wars not formally declared as such by Congress. Not all is at it first appears, and Americans interested in understanding how fundamental American principles are summarily ignored by federal officials and members of Congress need to examine critically such actions.

By the express command of U.N. Participation Act of 1945—enacted by the Congress of the United States of America and signed by American President Harry S. Truman—all pertinent parties understood the American law that the U.N. special agreements “shall be subject to the approval of Congress by appropriate Act or joint resolution.” Legislative Acts and joint resolutions both require approval of both Houses of Congress—the Senate and the House of Representatives—and the si...

Fighting Back against The Decree of '33

By: Matt R. Erickson

President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s gold confiscation of April 5, 1933 was tough on private citizens, but even tougher on coins. Confiscated gold coins, sacrificed in pits of fire, were melted and cast into gold bars to serve at the feet of their mortal enemy, paper currency. Then, it was silver’s turn at the axe in 1965, as President Lyndon B. Johnson’s substituted silver with copper and nickel as would a common counterfeiter. For another 50 years, gold and silver meek...

The Peculiar Conundrum

By: Matt R. Erickson

The Peculiar Conundrum is a political allegory, substituting difficult legal concepts with rules of sports. In the fictional country of Aminica (the United Franchises of Aminica), General Managers (Senators) and Head Coaches (Representatives) ignore many of their constraints listed in the Compact (Constitution) and act with impunity. The Sports Commissioner (President) and Referees (Supreme Court Justices) likewise do as they please. The country founded upon sports fr...

From the Back Cover: Envision for a moment, the following nonsensical sportscast: “Only seventeen seconds remain on the clock as we near the end of the sixth inning. The soccer ball is caught by Right End Tom King, only 9 yards from home plate. “To keep from being called for ‘Traveling,’ King dribbles the ball but still manages to get past the Goalie without being tackled. Moments later he slam-dunks the ball through the basket to score a touchdown and the Cattails ...

Bare Liberty

By: Matt R. Erickson

As these proud and once-prosperous United States of America continue in tragic decline, Mark Evanston leaps back into action in the third and final installment of the Bald Justice series, Bare Liberty. Working with his colleagues at the Patriot Corps, Mark continues on with his Patriot Quest to eliminate government tyranny, once and for all. Mark routs out evil where it lurks most prevalently, within our monetary system which was cleverly separated from the gold and si...

“I have to admit, my first killing shocked me,” Terry admitted. “Not because it was so hard, but actually because it was so easy and even more so because it was thrilling. Total dominion over someone else is very intoxicating, so much better than alcohol, drugs, or even sex. Actually, it was even better killing someone who had willingly just given me great sex only hours earlier, who now welcomed me back, only for me to then kill her.” “Your first killing?” Mark was ...

Base Tyranny

By: Matt R. Erickson

Base Tyranny is the second book in a fiction series (following Bald Justice), looking at our monetary history of gold and silver coin, transitioning into legal tender paper currencies.

Gordon Radcliff’s plan was ironically rooted in America’s extensive seacoast defense system. On March 17, 1861, two weeks after the necessary two-thirds of Congress had sent the proposed 13th Amendment to the States for ratification and a week after the Confederate States of America approved emitting bills of credit directly, Gordon Radcliff attended a family reunion and dinner. Originally Gordon had planned to skip the reunion, so he could continue to concentrate ...

Dollars and nonCents

By: Matt R. Erickson

Dollars and nonCents examines American monetary history, showing how paper currencies were deceptively made a legal tender (alongside gold and silver coin) in 1862 and cleverly upheld by the courts who were not exactly forthright with their rulings (necessitating a reading between the lines to understand them). Dollars and nonCents recommends a grain of gold as a market unit for accounting for the amount of gold, to begin transitioning away from the debt-based dollar wh...

Proponents of a legal tender paper currency occasionally point to the Constitution’s wording of the power “To coin Money” and claim that the word “Money” must include paper currency, since ‘money’ appears to be a word of greater meaning than that used in the same clause as it relates to “foreign Coin.” This is but a slight variation of the same argument which compares this power “To coin Money” in the Constitution with the wording used in the Ninth of the earlier Articl...

The Patriot Quest : To Restore Our American Republic

By: Matt R. Erickson

While Patriots repeatedly complain that progressives ignore the U.S. Constitution with impunity, Patriot Quest shows in reality that there is only strict construction of the Constitution, and those who act contrary to the spirit of the Constitution are, surprisingly, the ones who necessarily hold its letter up to its strictest terms. To back up that claim, Patriot Quest examines the precedent-setting 1871 Supreme Court case which first upheld paper currencies as legal te...

The Golden Rule of American Government, which Patriots disregard to their peril, is that no one entrusted with the exercise of federal authority is empowered to change the extent of that authority (only ratified amendments change the Constitution [and only the States are empowered, by Article V of the U.S. Constitution, to ratify amendments]). Two crucial implications necessarily follow: 1. Since no federal action has therefore actually ever changed the Constitution, t...

Bald Justice

By: Matt R. Erickson

This fiction novel introduces the manner of deception used to bypass the U.S. Constitution's express limitations on the scope of government. Since this is a rather large topic, this novel limits its scope to deal with money, showing how legal tender paper currencies were cleverly instituted in 1862 and gold was 'confiscated' in 1933. For a thorough, non-fiction look at the same topic, please see Monetary Laws, Volumes I & II; by the same author.

Mark’s greatest insights came from his great-grandfather’s monetary papers which relayed one conversation with Floyd Johnson. Floyd had brought up that the federal government seemed to be growing immensely powerful, not by amendment as was the express means provided by Article V of the Constitution for changing federal power, but merely somehow. Mark Adamson noted that the Tenth Amendment very clearly established the ‘rule’ of American government, that with ratificati...
