Many people are deceived into thinking that Oaths are mandatory, yet the United States Supreme Court keeps ruling that forced oaths are abhorrent.

Americans hold the truth that all men are created equal. But an oath, like a salute, is only given to superiors. Swearing an oath is a confession that you are no longer equal.

Every encyclopedia and dictionary will tell you that oaths are always religious rituals invoking the authority of a deity. This book will identify the gods that you now worship.

Christ told Christians to not swear. Christians’ millennia-old struggle against Roman oppression is near an end. You surrendered when you raised your hand to surrender. You surrendered when you signed a perjury oath signature on a government form.
