EASILY UNDERSTANDING THE CONSTITUTION OF SEPT 17, A.D. 1787

The first sentence of the Constitution of September 17, A.D. 1787 is NOT this Preamble:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The Preamble is not "legally" part of the Constitution of September 17, A.D. 1787, which is the document that was ratified, as required, by the ninth State on June 21, A.D. 1788 to become the Constitution of the United States.

The most important phrase in the Constitution, “United States,” is not defined in the Organic Laws of the United States of America. The discovery of the eighteen year age of majority hidden in the Article I Section 2 Clause 2 qualifications for Representative reveals the existence of two “United States.”

No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.
The minimum age of twenty-five years and seven years a Citizen of the United States makes it possible for an eighteen year old to be and act as an adult, something not possible under the English common law in the several States that comprise the Confederacy, the United States of America, under the Articles of Confederation of November 15, A.D. 1777. This possibility is further explained by reference to the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, A.D. 1787, where “free male inhabitants of full age” are made electors of representatives from the counties or townships within the district, the Northwest Territory.

The Northwest Ordinance made provision for a temporary government of that district and a property law for the lands of that district, which acknowledged the rights of proprietors and their children specifically mentioning the right of transfer by written will, by those of “full age.” There can be no doubt that “full age” meant eighteen years, which made that “United States” the territory belonging to The United States of America and subject to its exclusive legislative power.

The English common law is the unwritten law of English speaking people. Any change to the common law is going to be slow and deliberate. The legislative power of Congress to change the English common law is without limit in the United States, the territory owned by and subject to the exclusive legislative power of The United States of America.

This is the first and most important sentence in the Constitution of September 17, A.D. 1787:
“All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
Using the insights we gained by ascertaining the correct “full age” of the Representative to the House of Representatives, we can conclude that the “legislative Powers herein granted” are vested in a Congress of the United States of America.

In virtue of its power to raise and support armies, to provide and maintain a navy and to make rules for the government of land and naval forces, the Congress may require military service of adults and minors alike. The power of the United States may be exerted to supersede parents' control and their right to have the services of minor sons who are wanted and fit for military service. And the Congress may confer upon minors the privilege of serving in land or naval forces, authorize them to enlist, or draft them upon such terms as it may deem expedient and just. The statute under which plaintiff's son was accepted declares that minors between ages of 14 and 18 years shall not be enlisted in the navy without the consent of their parents. It means that, while minors over 18 may enlist without parental permission, the government elects not to take those between 14 and 18 unless their parents are willing to have them go. It is a determination by Congress that minors over 14 have capacity to make contracts for service in the navy. And it is in harmony with rulings under the common law to the effect that enlistment of a minor for military service is not voidable by him or his parents. Enlistment is more than a contract; it effects a change of status. It operates to emancipate minors at least to the extent that by enlistment they become bound to serve subject to rules governing enlisted men and entitled to have and freely to dispose of their pay. Upon enlistment of plaintiff's son and until his death he became entirely subject to the control of the United States in respect of all things pertaining to or affecting his service. United States v. Williams, 302 U.S. 46, 48-50 (1937) (footnotes omitted)(Emphasis added)
Some would have us believe, based on the above, the "Court" is stating that 18 years old is not the age of majority in United States, but is that really what the "opinion" of SCOTUS is saying?

It reads to me that they do consider 18 years to be the age of majority for U.S. territory, and that they know of the common law but don't recognize it for U.S. territory. That's why they figure they have to obtain parental consent before 18 years of age.

Have I overlooked something else?
