Editorial Reviews

Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr. uses his "Visual Constitution" to address two of the most pressing issues in our nation:

The Purse: America's Economic Crisis...what can and should the government do? Few Americans understand our economic system and its complexities. Hear Dr. Vieira explain, in easy to understand language, the lawful Constitutional powers the government possesses for dealing with money and the economy. Hear the common sense application of those powers, the abuses and unlawful expansions of those powers, as well as the only logical way through which we can return sanity to our economic policies.

The Sword: Homeland the Militia provides our only true security. Today an unending series of "crisis" are being used to rationalize the continual loss of liberty and expansion of government in size and scope. After years of research, Dr. Vieira presents the lawful and Constitutional remedies for threats to our Homeland Security. Hear how "the Militia of the several States" are the ultimate security against all threats - both foreign and domestic. Learn what you can do to help with Homeland Security in your community and State!

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch, take action. This plan might be our last hope. January 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is an amazing presentation but one of the great Constitutional scholars of our time. A man who understands money and power, our Constitution, our present situation, actual Economics (not "policy" economics, which is the stuff you hear on the news and from the government). Please, if you are reading this, buy this DVD set now and watch it the day it arrives (though it is 8 hours, so pack a lunch). It will blow your mind, and it is one of the only things I have ever heard that has a chance of doing lasting good, and actually working. Vieira understands that you can have all of the paper rules you want, but they will be as good as the paper in your wallet i.e. depreciating every day, and abused whenever the State feels like it. His plans, if carried out, might actually help the people take the country back from the thieves and sociopaths who have hijacked the government.
In a nutshell, Dr. Vieira offers a workable, Constitutionally legal plan to end the power of the fiat money regime, return those who want it to sound money, and provide a check against the growth of the totalitarian "homeland security state," while showing the way for TRUE homeland security. I could go on and on, but could not do it justice. Please, please buy this DVD and watch it. Then make your friends watch it.
The only issues I have with the product are that it would be nice if the "chapters" on the DVD were cut to actually correspond with breaks or sections of the talk, and I wish there was a booklet that came with it that detailed what was on each DVD for ease of finding sections you want. In other words the navigation isn't great, but that's a tiny problem and beggars can't be choosers - and I have been begging for something like this, so...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Powers that belong to "We the People" January 7, 2011

Constitutional History and Practical Applications for Today

Dr. Vieira presents our current situation and how it does indeed have Constitutional remedies. He articulates how the great powers of government - money (the purse) and force (the sword) are placed in the hands of "we the people" by our Constitution. He traces the history of how the current state of affairs has diverged from the system envisioned by our founding fathers. But he doesn't stop there. He presents ideas which are powerful. He suggests that states examine what the Constitution requires them to make as money (gold and silver) when it took from them the power to coin money. He also shows valid reasons for re-invigorating the "militias of the several states" to fight the threat of enemies - both foreign and domestic. And he links both of these ideas to restoring the powers of the purse and the sword to "we the people".

This is a very thorough presentation given before a live audience in Michigan. It is mostly just Dr. Vieira lecturing with some illustrations and diagrams to help explain how his concepts tie together, yet what it may lack in visual appeal is more than made up for in richness of content.

Many of these ideas are currently being discussed in state legislatures across the country. The "sound money" movement would surely support many of his ideas. Frustrated and alienated patriots who have felt they had no where to turn to help restore America to her founding ideals should find here some ideas of a path to restore their states to a proper relationship with "the general government" (as the early writers referred to what we now call the federal government). It would be interesting to see what would happen if all 50 state legislatures were to view this series....

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Encouraging! August 14, 2010
With most speakers who know anything about Constitutional matters, frustration and even despair are inevitable as one obtains a clear picture of the vast gulf between a truly free society and 21st Century America. Not so with Dr. Vieira! His understanding of the subject matter is so thorough that he naturally flows into suggesting practical ideas (some of which are already being implemented) whereby we can restore our nation to her former greatness!

Absolutely every American MUST watch this seminar! Dr. Vieira explains monetary policy and homeland security in a way that everyone can understand, complete with charts and illustrations, and leaves us with hope for the future!

I took one star off because I was annoyed that the disks split up the presentations that were about 2 hours long into 2 parts. The mike on the speaker was on the podium and there were many times when the speaker would step away from the podium and hearing him was very difficult for me. I listened to the DVDs on a road trip that was several hours long. I put the audio into my car audio system, so there was a lot of road noise to compete with. If you listen in a living room, you may not have that power. The speaker was even better when listened to with PowerDVD or something that allows the play rate to be increased. I listened at 1.2x and found that to be much better than normal speed.

Ok. Enough gripes. The content on this is very well presented. There are slides which illustrate the people and principles that he speaks about. Being fairly new to the whole "Fed should be dead" movement or whatever it is, I found the presentations quite illuminating. I was also quite intrigued to hear that the presenter was working with organizations to be able to put legislation in place in states to allow taxes to be paid in gold using systems that could actually reinstate a gold system.

If you have an interest in money or Constitutional "home land defense", this would be a great set to get. It would be great to see that an updated version could be put out. Now that I've seen it, I've been loaning it to others for their consideration. It's lead to some very interesting discussions. Recommended.
