Freedom in America

In the United States, “We The People” had freedom.  We were entirely free from federal laws, except for the three crimes mentioned in the Constitution. “And no other crimes whatever”.  We still hold the truth that we are all created equal, but we became unequal when we volunteered to be subservient.

FIRST — understand what basic rights are.  Prerequisite to understanding your basic rights —  read my essay The Three Rights of All Mankind.

SECOND — understand that you were free from federal government until you volunteered.

Back in 1798, the people living in Kentucky wanted assurance that they were free from federal law.  They knew they were free from most federal laws but they remained skeptical. Vice President Thomas Jefferson reassured them in the Kentucky Resolves that, as a state, the state citizens are subject to only three federal laws. The three mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. Piracy, Treason and Counterfeiting. “and no other crimes whatever”.

Vice President Thomas Jefferson wrote both Kentucky Resolutions.…

Federal authority extends ONLY to powers we the people delegated to them, and no others. Supreme Court decisions AND The 10th Amendment say so:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

And we only delegated to them the 18 things we allow them to do.  Listed in Article 1, section 8.


The first eight Amendments do not apply to state citizens — according to the  Supreme Court in Twinning v. NJ, 211 US 78,  in 1908 — and in Hague v. CIO, 307 US 496,  in 1939

State governments’ judicial branch must protect you from the federal government — according to the Supreme Court in Ex Parte Mulligan, 71 US 2,

State citizens are subject to ONLY three federal laws. As a State Citizen, YOU WERE FREE FROM FEDERAL JURISDICTION, until you surrendered.  When you volunteer into the federal government, you voluntarily submit yourself to a form of government that owes allegiance to two sovereignties.

THIRD — understand that you volunteered

The U.S. Supreme Court in the Cruikshank case, 92 U.S. 542 at 551 tells us that:

“It is the natural consequence of a citizenship which owes allegiance to two sovereignties, and claims protection from both. The citizen cannot complain, because he has voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government.”

Pay attention to their word “voluntarily“.   Your natural birth did not voluntarily submit yourself to the federal government.  Contrary to a popular myth that a 14th Amendment birth* is your natural birth — a 14th Amendment birth* does NOT automatically make you a U.S. Citizen —   Your voluntary birth (by registration) into the federal government is how you submitted yourself.  Those who submit themselves to federal government must first deny the purpose of their state to exist.  They must mutiny against the purpose that their State government was created.

You voluntarily became subject to federal law when you volunteered into the federal government. You volunteered by registering for federal benefits (like getting a SSN, or availing yourself of “any program financed in whole or in part with federal funds” such as unemployment benefits or food stamps, etc). This maxim of law can be found in any law dictionary “The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freedman to his original slavery Libertinum ingratum leges civiles in pristinam servitutem redigunt.

FOURTH — understand your slavery.  Denial will not help.  There is a boot on your head for a reason.  The swamp is rising.  You will drown in the swamp until you yearn to breathe free and get the boot off your head.

You WERE free from federal laws, except for the three mentioned in the Constitution.  But by invoking federal benefit law (such as applying for federal benefits on a government form) you confess that federal benefit laws apply to you.  You are the ungrateful freedman.  You confess that you cannot manage your own affairs.  The federal citizen cannot complain because he has voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government.  You consented to be governed.

Once numbered, you cannot qualify to enter a judicial court to redress grievances.  You can only qualify for legislative tribunals that are erroneously called “courts”.  Only responsible people can qualify to manage their civil servants.  The administrative record shows that you are reduced to your original slavery.  AND your labor is now collateral for the national debt. They have a duty to maximize the value of the creditor’s collateral.  Which is why you can get government care.

If you want your state government to be your government, then don’t volunteer yourself into the federal government.   Don’t mutiny against your own government. Don’t deny that we are all created equal.


Even religious liberty — one of the most sacred liberties — is waived when you get a Social Security Number.  Amish will not normally get a SSN because insurance is proof that you don’t trust God.  The US Supreme Court tells us that an Amish man waived his religious rights to an “overriding governmental interest” in the Supreme Court case U.S. v. Lee (455 U.S. 252):

The state may justify a limitation on religious liberty by showing that it is essential to accomplish an overriding governmental interest”

In other words, those who are numbered must be regulated.

That’s right.  The Pilgrims risked death seeking religious liberty.  Our founders brought forth on this continent a new nation conceived in liberty — where having a SSN waives your religious liberty.

Everyone must now ask themselves another question:
What did you sign that ensnared yourself to legalities that you didn’t understand?  For the sad story of your mutiny, read me eBook The Citizen Cannot Complain.

NEXT — you must learn that
State courts must enforce federal laws on 14th Amendment federal citizens because Article 6 second paragraph says that judges in every state are bound thereby. (Hints: judicial courts are established, legislative tribunals are constituted, legislative tribunals call themselves courts. Legislative “courts” cannot have judicial authority because the legislature had no judicial authority which they could delegate to their creature.)
State Citizens can avoid these courts by using extraordinary writs and not using the statutory laws that are imposed on the states by federal 14th Amendment enforcement.


*The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the meaning of the first sentence of the 14th Amendment in Elk v. Wilkins in 1884 (112 U.S. 94):

The persons declared to be citizens are `all persons born or naturalized in the united states, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.’ The evident meaning of these last words is, not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction, and owing them direct and immediate allegiance.”
