“But. I have rights”

“But, I have rights,” proclaim the deceived protesters.

Whining liberals. Whining conservatives. Neither side seems to grasp why we don’t have any rights. They all want to blame greedy politicians, greedy corporations, not enough welfare, not enough protections, conspiracies, and “government overreach”. But the problem is much closer to home.

A corrupt populous will always have a despot to rule over them — to forcibly redistribute their wealth. If you think it is acceptable to force others to pay for your health care, your schools, your old age, your disaster relief and even your roads — then you already agreed that it is acceptable for them to force you to pay for others. Once upon a time in America, we loved our neighbors as much as ourselves. We voluntarily helped the orphans and widows, fed the hungry, clothed the naked, sheltered the homeless, healed the sick, comforted the afflicted, and buried the dead. We educated our own children, or privately funded public schools. And businesses paved the roads. And taverns served as post offices.

After a prisoner was openly punished as a deterrent to others, they were told “What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.” But government no longer bothers to tell you why you are punished, so I will. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. You are punished because you forgot the original organic law-of-the-land.

We have known since Biblical days that feigned words would make merchandise of us. And that the end-times would involve all deceivableness of unrighteousness so that strong delusion would cause us to believe a lie.

Those who receive not a love for the truth shall receive strong delusion that they should believe a lie.

You have probably thought rebellious thoughts against your government masters, such as:

  • “But the Bill of Rights protects me.”
  • “The Bill of Rights limits government. Individual rights are not limited. Why are my rights limited?”
  • “But no state shall pass any law impairing the obligation of contracts. Why are my contracts impaired? (by minimum wage, sales tax, employment tax, business licenses, unemployment tax, regulations, etc)”
  • “But fraud vitiates all contracts. My social contract with the state is invalid without voluntary informed consent.”
  • “And how is a criminal gang in DC legitimate in any way?”
  • “It is absurd to say the Constitution is enforced.”

The answer to all these questions is simple, but you will not like it. We were all created equal, until we consented to be governed. If you had not consented, then your contracts would not be impaired. Out of respect for what appears to be authority, you agreed to legalities that you did not understand.

“But the Bill of Rights protects me.”

The Bill of Rights only protects federal people. And only to the extent allowed by prior court rulings. The first eight articles in amendment to the U.S. Constitution do not apply to State inhabitants, according to the U.S. Supreme Court in Twining v. New Jersey, 211 US 78, in 1908, and in Hague v. CIO, 307 U.S. 496, in 1939.

State inhabitants are not protected by federal laws, not even amendments. According to Thomas Jefferson in his 1798 Kentucky Resolution, state inhabitants are not even subject to federal law, except for the three crimes mentioned in the Constitution, “and no other crimes whatever”. If you are subject to federal laws, you might want to find out why.

The federal 14th Amendment citizen cannot complain. He registered for federal benefits. Although he was created equal, he voluntarily became subordinate to the federal government by asking for benefits.

The Supreme Court in U.S. v Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542 at 551:

Notice their word voluntarily. YOUR natural birth did not voluntarily** submit yourself to such a form of government. You did.

State courts had the duty to protect inhabitants from the federal government, according to the Supreme Court in Ex Parte Mulligan, 71 US 2.

But people disavowed their state protections in order to get federal benefits. The Expatriation Act was passed the day before the 14th Amendment was ratified. Those who accepted federal benefits of the freedman’s bureau “promptly and finally disavowed” their State allegiance. A maxim of law applies here. “The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freedman to his original slavery”.

Rights only come with responsibilities. If you beg for benefits, then you confess that you cannot manage your own life. You voluntarily accept procruation, and others will manage you. There is no prescription (cure) for procuration “Procurationem adversus nulla est proæscriptio“. You stretched out your hand, and others will lead you where you do not want to go. (John 21:18).

People who forfeit all their organic rights, are now protected only by their six federal rights. And judges in every state are bound thereby (Article 6, second paragraph). If you want to know what your six federal rights are, read them in the Klu Klux Klan Act of 1871.

Unalienable rights are not government-granted rights. Three years after the 14th Amendment, congress passed the Klu Klux Klan Act of 1871 to protect the six rights granted to 14th Amendment citizens of the federal government. These six rights are the “equal protection of the laws” and “due process of law” that you now have. Your six rights are not the thousands of unalienable rights that you once had before you voluntarily submitted yourself to such a form of government.

The U.S. Supreme Court in 1878 case of Davidson v. New Orleans stated that your Constitution is NOT redundant. These mean different things:

  • The 14th Amendment section 1, “… nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law… “
  • The 5th Amendment “… nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…”

If you don’t understand why the same words “life, liberty, or property” AND “due process of law” mean different things for different people, then perhaps you would want to know why. If you don’t want to know why, then go back to your complaining — even though the Supreme Court said that the 14th Amendment citizen cannot complain.

Right of peaceably to assemble and petition for redress of grievances.

You cannot complain because you cannot have standing in any court to complain. Your only redress of grievances are those that are allowed in their tribunals.

But fraud vitiates all contracts

“But fraud vitiates all contracts. My social contract with the state is invalid without voluntary informed consent.”

Answer: There is no social contract for a State citizen. But federal citizens have changed their status to contract, according to ancient law. See my essay on Presumed Contracts, linked below.

Thomas Jefferson was there, and he opposed this emerging dangerous doctrine.

“the idea is quite unfounded that on entering into society we give up any natural rights.”
– Jefferson letter to F. W. Gilmer 1816.

Notice Jefferson’s word entering. You voluntarily enter society. But that is not what made you subordinate. You entered into the socialist benefit contract, which changed your status and your citizenship.

You became a citizen of the federal government. You applied for federal benefits of a SSN.

SSNs are only available to persons who cannot manage their own life. The Social Security Act, Section 205(c)(2)(B)(i)(II), allows Social Security Cards to be issued to an “applicant for or recipient of benefits under any program financed in whole or in part by Federal funds” *

You promptly and finally disavowed your state government protections, when you applied for federal benefits by getting a SSN.

Where is the proof that the State had my voluntary informed consent?

This excuse will not work in court, for many reasons.

The admissible proof of your voluntary** consent to be governed is in your wallet*** and on every government form you signed under penalty of perjury.

  • Estopple prevents you from holding two mutually-exclusive positions. You cannot claim to be a ward of government and also demand how they will take care of you. You gave them explicit procuration.
  • Protection draws subjection. Protectio trahit subjectionem. 
  • “The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freedman to his original slavery” Libertinum ingratum leges civiles in pristinam servitutem redigunt.
  • The received-law-of-the-land includes this maxim: “a state of dependence will inevitably oblige the inferior to take the will of him, on whom he depends, as the rule of his conduct”
  • The received-law-of-the-land (and included in the Articles of Confederation) deny to paupers (supported by public funds) the privileges of citizens.
  • Masters provide for their servants. You inherited a government. You have a duty to support your (civil) servants. In 1897 President Grover Cleveland wrote “The lesson should be constantly enforced that though the people should support the government, the government should not support the people.”
  • Maxim of law “He who derives a benefit from a thing, ought to feel the disadvantages attending it.” This validates the constructive contract that judges will enforce in court. The benefit, however small, is consideration of the contract.  Here is a partial definition of consideration from Black’s Law Dictionary.
    consideration definition
  • “No one can unjustly enrich himself at the expense of others” (this creates a constructive contract that courts enforce). Also look up “constructive fraud”.
  • Silence implies consent. Pacta servanta sunt, agreements must be kept.
  • Like Esau, you sold your birthright for a future bowl of stew. Your Bible tells us twice that God hated Esau.
  • Your consent does not need to be informed consent because you are required to know the Laws of Nature’s God, just like Eve was required to know it (she was sentenced to death for accepting a benefit) . Ignorantia juris quod quisque tenetur scire, neminem excusat. Ignorance of a law, which every one is bound to know, excuses no man.
  • Constructive conversion. By participating in a benefit scheme (unemployment benefits, OSHA safety protections, bankruptcy protection, licensing, etc) you agreed that they can convert your rights into their rights.
  • Voluntary Servitude. Even getting a passport is proof of allegiance. Voluntary servitude has been with us since Biblical days. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discourse_on_Voluntary_Servitude
  • Coactus volui, Tamen volui.  The U.S. Civil Law is the ancient Roman Law. The lawyers agree that you can be forced to volunteer.
The Law of Obligations: Roman Foundations of the Civilian Tradition by Reinhard Zimmermann, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1996. Page 652

As you can see, you will be forced against your will to pay for the benefits you received. Even if it is your forced labor extracted in concentration camps.

Oaths are only taken to superiors (Hebrews 6:16). But you didn’t want to be equal, so you signed a perjury oath signature to get a government benefit. And you signed a perjury oath when you filed a required tax. Taking oaths to superiors is confessing to be subordinate. You gave them your consent to be governed.

Read my essay on Presumed Contracts. Presumed contracts – Do Not Be Fooled by Government (notfooledbygovernment.com)

“And how is a criminal gang in DC legitimate in any way?”

What you call the “criminal gang” are the superiors you are bound to obey. “The citizen cannot complain because he has voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government” according to the Supreme Court.
A corrupt populous will always be ruled by a despot.

But you already knew that because the Bible told you so. Apostle Paul repeated King David’s warning that government charity would be a snare to trap you. Romans 11:9

You are the one responsible for managing your voluntary** government licenses. Dog license, marriage license, driver license, child registration, building permits, water rights, etc.
“It is absurd to say the Constitution is enforced.”

State judges are confined by the U.S. Constitution. They must treat 14th Amendment citizens equal. With the six rights that they are due.

There are very few Citizens who can access their State judicial powers without going through legislative tribunals to get there. They can use writs to enforce their state constitution.

Legitimate government was ordained by legitimate people. Not by servants. The State Constitutions’ “We The People” were the supreme power that created government. They are the jura summi imperii. They are responsible for controlling what they created, or, in our case, inherited. (In a nation where we are all created equal, the subordinates are those who swear oaths, such as oaths-of-office.) Real Citizens use Extraordinary Writs to control their civil “servant” government subordinates.
Writ of Habeas Corpus
Writ of Mandamus
Writ of Quo Warranto
Writ of Prohibition
Writ of Error
Writ of Error Corum Novus
Writ of Certiorari
Writ of Trevor
Writ of Replevin
Writ of Detinue
Writ of Trespass
Writ of Treason

These writs are processed by Judicial Courts. [Judicial courts are the ones established — not constituted — by your State Constitution. Judicial judges have lifetime tenure whose pay cannot be diminished while in office]. But federal citizens cannot get there because they have no right to complain.


Perhaps future generations of unnumbered children can take back government from the Novus Ordo Seclorum, secular new world order. Since children have not consented, upon reaching their age of consent, they are the only ones that can claim to legitimately inherit — as the   jura summi imperii  — the ordained  constitution. They were created equal and did not kneel to a master.

You have much to learn, grasshopper. So get hoppin’.

Feigned words will make merchandise of us. Second Peter 2:3. You might end up branded with a wage authorization number, or a banking authorization number. Possibly on your forehead.
And your covetous practices shall curse your children. Second Peter 2:14. They might end up as collateral for the national debt — as specified by the GATT Treaty.


* And the only people who can receive government funded welfare programs are indigents who meet the criteria established by the U.S. Supreme Court in Edwards v. California, 314 US 172: “…only persons who are presently destitute of property and without resources to obtain the necessities of life, and who have no relatives or friends able and willing to support them.”
— JUST HOW DETESTABLE must you be — to have no relatives, friends, neighbors or church who is willing to provide you with a necessity of life?
Answer: As detestable as all of those who confessed, on a permanent irrevocable government form, that they qualify as card-carrying socialists. Also look up wretch.

** The Supreme Court, quoted above, said that the citizen voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government. Here are some maxims of law regarding volunteers,

  • “Volenti non fit injuria”
  • “That to which a man consents cannot be considered an injury.”
  • “He who consents to an act is not damaged by it.”
  • “He who consents cannot receive an injury”
  • “To him consenting no injury is done.”

*** Badges (Identification credentials) are not given to elected authority (as in Marbury v. Madison). Civil servants do not identify their masters. Subordinates must have identification (traditionally in right hand or forehead) to enter the marketplace on behalf of their master. See my book on Identification Credentials.
