I Thessalonians 5:20, 21

Do not despise expounding of scripture, but scrutinize all things. Hold fast that which is right.

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

Treason Against the United States

There have been less than 15 convictions and executions for treason in US history. Why so few in 237 years? Unless I am a complete idiot, it seems to me there has been quite a bit of treasonous activity within our nation within my lifetime.

Here is what the US Constitution has to say about treason:

U.S. Constitution - Article 3 Section 3

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

Notice how treason is against the United States, and that the word "them" and "their" is used, referring to the (individual) States collectively.

What would constitute an "overt" act? We almost immediately think of spying.

But what about capturing control of all the States' money supply? (Notice again it's States. That’s us – we the people.) And then reduce the value of the people's currency to 3% of its value in 100 years. Would that result be an overt act of treason against the people of the United States?

Or, would simply creating money out of thin air and buying a huge portfolio of US Treasury debt, when no one else will, enabling our government to go beyond the point of no return with a monetarily unpayable load of debt upon the people of the United States, and thus destroying the country, be an overt act of treason?

Or the Zero Interest Rate Policy punishing savers and elderly retirees dependent on the interest earned by their savings?

Seems to me there are several causes of actions that could be taken against the Federal Reserve System, the chairmen, owners and other stockholders, for treason.

The problem is, the entire system is so corrupted by treasonous activity, that no trials of this nature are likely.

Unless of course, we the people, through the States, take responsibility.
