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 Security...how 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!

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.
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...
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....
This video is very educational. A fantastic tool for tea party,constitutional,and homeschool groups.
It's well produced and that is a nice change from the norm for most of the videos I've seen the liberty movement turn out.
