State citizens are not protected by federal laws, not even the Bill of Rights.
The Bill of Rights is a list of restrictions on the federal government. They were ratified more than two years after the Constitution was signed.
The Bill of Rights has a preamble.
“The conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its power, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.”
That’s right. THE BILL OF RIGHTS RESTRICTS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. It says that it will “prevent.. abuse of power”. It does not restrict state governments.
It does not grant any rights.
United States Supreme Court in Twining v. New Jersey, 211 US 78, in 1908 says that State Citizens are not protected by the restrictions of first eight Amendments:
“The first eight Amendments are restrictive only of National action, and, while the Fourteenth Amendment restrained and limited state action, it did not take up and protect citizens of the States from action by the States as to all matters enumerated in the first eight Amendments.”
The U.S. Supreme Court in Hague v. CIO, 307 U.S. 496, 520:, in 1939 — four years AFTER the Social Security Act:
“… the first eight amendments have uniformly been held not be protected from state action by the privileges and immunities clause” [of the fourteenth amendment]
That’s right! the U.S. Supreme Court says that State Citizens are not protected by the Bill of Rights’ first 8 amendments. Only 14th Amendment citizens (wards of the federal government), and those in the federal territories, are protected by federal laws.
Which is why Bankruptcy protection is only available to people with SSNs. The courts deem those with SSNs to be too incompetent to manage their own affairs. They are wards of the federal government. The federal government protects these helpless wards under the doctrine of Capitis Diminutio. More about this in later lessons.
