1) The power that gives meaning to words of a valid contract is the meeting of the minds. Without that meeting of the minds the contract is merely a cover for fraud. The same holds true for any social compact or covenant such as our Constitution.
For this reason the evidence of original intent is cornerstone to every interpretation of our Constitution that is not prone to equivocation dissemblance and logical fallacy that when knowingly and willingly committed to effect a citizens dispossession of their true Constitution constitutes state and federal felonies such as 18USC1341 “Frauds & Swindles”, Va18.2-481(5) Statutory Treason and Va18.2-111.
Witnesses to those felonies are bound by law to effectively raise a remedy against the witnessed felonies. The law binding that duty to all citizens is in:
the equivalent statutes in our state law and
the equivalent raising of “Hue & Cry” of our embraced by statute, English Common Law.
