US Supreme Court in Edwards v. California, 314 US 172, at the bottom of page 183: “birth within a state does not establish citizenship thereof.”
This is within the Laws of Nature. The first sentence of the Declaration of Independence says that the Laws of Nature entitle the United States to exist.
The Supreme Court says that Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Law are part of, and explain, the received law of the land. Blackstone writes about the Laws of Nature. He states that all legislated laws “derive all their force, and all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original…. neither could any other law possibly existfor we are all created equal with no other superior than the author of our being”
People living in an area would create a local society to help themselves defend their rights. We called them counties. The counties would then get together and agree to hold a constitutional convention to create a State, and then vote to see which counties would ratify it. Many people living in federal territories ratified their state constitutions in order to FREE themselves from federal government. Is your society, county, or state, free from federal jurisdiction?
People then voluntarily enter into the State government. Natural birth within a state does not create citizenship. If you don’t enter a State government then you remain within the Laws of Nature. “neither could any other law possibly exist for we are all created equal with no other superior than the author of our being”.
And, of course, once you enter the government, by asking for benefits, “the citizen cannot complain”.
The social compact theory of government says we give up some rights when we enter society. Yet twenty-nine years after the Constitution was ratified, this theory was refuted by Thomas Jefferson when he warned about this emerging dangerous theory.
Thomas Jefferson: “the idea is quite unfounded that on entering into society we give up any natural rights.” – letter to F. W. Gilmer 1816.
