Why do States exist?

The first 13 States existed before the U.S. Constitution was written.  Article 4, section 3 allows new states to be admitted into the union.  Most new states were formed by societies that lived within federal territories.  There are a few States that were never federal territories: Vermont, Kentucky, Texas and California.

People in the federal territories were under federal jurisdiction. They wanted to be free, so they did something about it. They wrote their state constitutions in order to free themselves from federal jurisdiction. People in the States are free from federal jurisdiction. Are you free from federal jurisdiction?

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, their citizens are subject to only three federal laws. 1 The three laws  mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. Piracy, Treason and Counterfeiting.

IF YOU ARE SUBJECT TO MORE THAN THREE FEDERAL LAWS, IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE WAIVED YOUR RIGHTS.  You denied the purpose of your State to exist.  You reject the authority for We-The-People to write a State Constitution.  You deny that we are all created equal. You deny that governments are instituted among men to secure Creator-endowed (God-given) rights.

You wanted a master to rule over you.  You did not want to be master over your civil-servants. The Supreme Court said in U.S. v Cruikshank case, 92 U.S. 542 at 551:

“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.”

What did you sign that ensnared yourself to legalities that you didn’t understand?2
