Charters VS Consititutions
CHARTER. A grant made by the sovereign either to the whole people or to a portion of them, securing to them the enjoyment of certain rights. Of the former kind is the late charter of France, which extended to the whole country; the charters which were granted to the different American colonies by the British government were charters of the latter pieces. 1 Story, Const. L. 161; 1 Bl. Com. 108 Encycl. Amer. Charte Constitutionelle.
- A charter differs from a CONSTITUTION in this, that the former is granted by the sovereign, while the latter is established by the people themselves: both are the fundamental law of the land.
- This term is susceptible of another signification. During the middle ages almost every document was called carta, charta, or chartula. In this sense the term is nearly synonymous with deed. Co. Litt. 6; 1 Co. 1; Moor. Cas. 687.
- The act of the legislature creating a corporation, is called its charter. Vide 3 Bro. Civ. and Adm. Law, 188; Dane’s Ab. h. t.

Law of Contracts and the 1871 Municipal UNITED STATES Corp.
FORTY FIRST CONGRESS SESSION III; CHAPTER 62, 1871; CHAP. LXII. — An act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia.
In 1871 Congress exercise this power by legislating the organization of a municipal corporation to run the day-to-day affairs of the District of Columbia, the seat of government. The proper name of this municipal corporation is UNITED STATES. Congress adopted the text of the federal constitution as the constitution or charter of this municipal corporation.
Section 28. And be it further enacted, That the said legislative assembly shall power to create by general law, modify, repeal, or amend, within said District, corporations aggregate for religious, charitable, educational, industrial, or commercial purposes, and to define their powers and liabilities: Provided, That the powers of corporations so created shall be limited to the District of Columbia.
NOTE: The Corporate UNITED STATES has no Jurisdiction outside of D.C. Ten square miles as the last sentence reads above:
The 1845, 1866, 1869, 1876, State of Texas Charters are documents that government created as a deception during the period of time that a document from a United States foreign government was, with due pomp and ceremony, brought to this country and deceptively and criminally adopted as our so called Constitution. Pay attention to the quotation marks, which are factual quotes.
Since the Texian people had nothing to do with these documents, they are nothing to us. It is at best deception and at worst treason for which those behind these deceptions should be shot as Traitors. I personally believe that they should all be incarcerated for life and I believe you would agree if you truly realized the number of lives that have been lost as a result of their activities and understood how this was accomplished through the use of, and with the utmost violations of, the document called the organic 1836 Constitution for the republic of Texas and the unlawful transfer of the Texian People’s government money creation responsibilities there under, to the privately owned banks.
Since we the people were granted all rights by our creator, then the government is in no position to grant us rights, we already have them all. The only thing government can do is eradicate our rights and they do it one at a time, so we will not notice. Every legal law with color that is passed by government is evidence of just one or more of our rights being transferred to them. Soon, if we are not already there, we will have absolutely no rights to exercise of our own free will. I hope you will start thinking and reply to me by citing a free will right that you feel we still have.
Below are historical quotes from documentations I found throughout Texas history; documents so stating which are Constitutions and which where actually Charters.
‘The 1845 charter was the only one of the five Texas state constitutions to assign to the legislature the appointment of the treasurer, comptroller of public accounts, and district attorneys, but this was changed by an amendment ratified in 1850.”
“The Eighth Legislature (1859-61), called into special session by Governor Sam Houston, authorized retroactively the Secession Convention,qv whose ordinance of secessionqv from the United States was approved by the voters on February 23, 1861 Three to one for secession and the State of Texas joined the Confederacy soon thereafter. To conform to the new order, the Secession Convention adopted amendments to the 1845 charter, which as amended, is customarily referred to as the Constitution of 1861.qv”
Note; (under the republic of Texas it is called a constitution 1861); After the Civil War the United States in 1865 declared that the Texian people’s secession vote in 1861 was null and void and placed Texas under the War reconstruction act 1866 which is still in affect today.
“Following cessation of armed hostilities, a new constitution, also in the form of amendments incorporated in the 1845 charter, was drafted in 1866 by a convention elected under presidential Reconstruction.qv”
“Following ratification of the new charter by the voters in 1866, the Eleventh Legislature (1866-67) met from August 6 to November 12, during which time, among other actions, it rejected the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and refused to consider the Thirteenth. After the Congress turned down the new constitution in 1867, no legislative sessions were held until 1870.”
“The Constitution of 1869,qv drafted by convention and adopted by the voters under congressional Reconstruction, retained many of the legislative provisions from earlier charters but added several that were destined for a very short life, of which the two most significant were annual legislative sessions and six-year terms for senators, one third of whom were to be elected every biennium. Also new were the removal of the disqualification of clerics, the fixed size of both houses (ninety for the House and thirty for the Senate), and, for senators, a lower age requirement to twenty-five. Durational residence qualifications for senators and representatives were restored to their 1845 levels.”
“The Constitution of 1876qv restored the traditional biennial regular sessions and four-year overlapping senatorial terms and continued the ten-year apportionment periods of the 1866 and 1869 charters and the five-year residence requirement for senators from 1866.”
“Similar to the 1845 charter, representatives were to be elected from equally populated districts “as nearly as may be.””
“The Texas statehood constitution, the Constitution of 1845,qv established a governmental structure that with modifications and supplementation has been carried forward in all subsequent charters.”
It appears in some places there are double statements such as above. It states the 1845 are a Constitution then follows with stating it and all subsequent Constitutions are actually Charters.
