"Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law for it is the author and source of law;" Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 336 (1886)
There is a momentous change in the thoughts of humanity. The change is an
alteration of history when it comes to power of Nations to that of a
new type of individual. The new power structure of the individual is
to place the actual power in the hands of the individuals themselves.
These people refer to themselves as sovereign individuals. The
definition of a "sovereign individual" has come to describe
individuals that choose to live a selective lifestyle and is used by
many persons of this belief. Another common term is Free-man-on-the-Land (FMOTL) who hold the same ideals. Some of these beliefs are the perception
that the human being is owned by the individual and government has no
claims to their person as being property. They maintain an active
obligation to the rights of the individual. They hold no trust in a
political democracy, or a market insurrectionist.
beliefs maintain the right to both financial privacy as well as
personal privacy. They are enthusiastic to think and act outside of
the government imposed box. They do not hold respect to be obligated
to being ruled by existing Nation States. Some use participation in a strategy of banking outside the borders of the
Nation in which they reside and various other methods to protect
their wealth from Government intervention. A
"Sovereign Individual" is similar to the label of
"Perpetual Traveler" as they both hold similar concepts.
The "Sovereign Individual" lives wherever his/her living,
breathing body resides. They have no address per se, as they cannot
live in two places at the same time. Therefore they live wherever
there body is at any given moment. Another term which is similar to
the "Sovereign Individual" is the term "internationalist"
which is defined as a person that thinks globally and holds no
allegiance to any government of any Nation State. The lifestyle known
as the sovereign individual is a combination of many ideas, all
relevant to the idea of self-ownership. Many persons are sovereign
individuals without ever realising or knowing exactly what the idea
have always been human beings that have lived their life and their
thoughts reflect that of the sovereign individual, they will usually
refer to themselves by a different label. The main ideas and concepts
is an alteration of how the individual views the world and their
place in the world. It is the concept of raising oneself over the
impression of being owned by any Government entity. They also do not
believe that they have any need to acquiesce themselves to any
controlling foreign establishment. The Sovereign individual demands
that they are self-reliant and free from the restraints mandated by
any government entity. Claiming the label of a sovereign individual
is much more then acting in a particular way or doing certain things.
Just as an example, simply because a human being creates an offshore
bank account or forms a company offshore it does not make them a
"Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." - James Madison
individuals resides more in the way they live their life, it is a way
of thinking and acting accordingly. Life has many paths, the
possibilities are endless. The sovereign individual is the human
beings that follow the path that is less traveled. It takes an immense amount of learning to properly deal with the "officials" of government and state that think that they have authority over you, your person, or the fruit of your labor. This leads many sovereigns to stop paying taxes, once they learn that they lawfully don't have to. It comes with understanding that the government can only given authority by your own CONSENT. It's done via contracts known as "driver's licenses", "W-4's" (making one a federal employee), the Birth Certificate, as well as the Social Security Card. By connecting yourself with any of these, you are operating in Commerce, ruled by Admiralty Law (the law of the Sea) instead of the Law of the Land, often referred to as "Common Law."
Some people choose this lifestyle for religious or spiritual reasons. Some believe the "system" ruling over us is referred to in the Bible as Babylon The Great Harlot. It's interesting to know that Black's Law Dictionary defines "Commerce" as "Intercourse." The Intercourse had between The Great Harlot and the Beast, which the Bible defines as the kings and political rulers of the earth in Rev. 19:19.
"Come, I will show you the judgement of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth [politicians and rulers] committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk [indulged] with the wine of her fornication." Rev. 17:1-2.
"Sovereign individuals are subject only to a Common Law, whose primary purposes are to protect and defend individual rights, and to prevent anyone, whether public official or private person, from violating the rights of other individuals. Within this scene, Sovereigns are never subject to their own creations, and the constitutional contract is such a creation." To quote the Supreme Court, "No fiction can make a natural born subject." Milvaine v. Coxe's Lessee, 8 U.S. 598 (1808). That is to say, no fiction, be it a corporation, a statute law, or an administrative regulation, can mutate a natural born Sovereign into someone who is subject to his own creations. "
a freeman on the land is something that most of you have probably
never heard of. It's the same as a sovereign individual, but some prefer to use this term instead. A
freeman on the land is someone in a common law jurisdiction who
lawfully refuses giving consent to be governed,
therefore no statutory obligations or restrictions apply to that man
or woman. No statute or act of government applies to a freeman on the
not consenting to be governed a freeman on the land is no longer
eligible for the benefits of being a governed member of society,
things like employment insurance, vehicle insurance and registration,
welfare, government health insurance, and any other government system
do not apply to a freeman on the land.
I think most of us agree
that there is massive amounts of corruption within governments and
within our own government. Becoming aware of just how far the
deception goes is an important part of taking back your personal
freedoms and claiming your rights as a human being. You
will notice that lawyers and judges are all members of what is called
the Law Society. The law society is extremely deceptive to
the common man because they use words (legalese) that the common man uses in
every day language but they mean something different. They use this
tactic to trick the common man into giving his/her consent to be
"There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting". - Buddha
The SYSTEM has trapped you, and will use FEAR to keep you in bondage. Thus you must overcome FEAR with courage. Most people simply aren't brave enough to quit the corporation known as the United States. They fear consequences if they sever the ties, but for those who thirst for freedom, will empower themselves with knowledge. If you do not want to be a slave, especially to such a corrupt system, then you can choose to become sovereign. Many others refer to the same thing as free-man-on-the-land. One step you can take is the claim your common law rights, here is an example of a religious/spiritual Claim of Right, and here is a New Zealand Claim of Right. These examples and others go to show the ideas shared by those who wish to be free. It doesn't have to be for religious purposes, or political reasons. Your reasons can be your own. In the end, that matters is that you grasp why you are doing what you are doing. If you wish to become sovereign only to ignore speed limits and stop paying taxes you may be less successful than those who fully understand why they are quitting the corporate government. The more you understand about how your freedom has been taken from you, and how you have been used as a debt slave in a corrupt and unjust system, and especially if you see what this all means for the future, the desire to free yourself from the system is all you need.
What is Step Number 1: Want it with everything in you. For this path takes perseverance, courage, and knowledge, all of which you must already have, or gain. If you want freedom, then seeking knowledge is what you must do next. I recommend you study all subjects covered in the Freedom Section, read as many articles, and visit as many websites as you can in order to understand Sovereignty from every angle. It takes many years of knowledge gaining to take the first steps on the path to freedom, while others jump in head first. Jumping in to quickly however, could be less than successful. Take notice that there is a wealth of information out there, as there is also a wealth of misinformation and disinformation.
and most of all know your rights!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SITES:
Many make use of Affidavits, or Claim's of Right. Essentially it's an official letter courteously letting the government know that you are a free-man-on-the-land. They are proven to be very effective. They can be sent as an attachment to all correspondence with the government, police, judges, politicians, essentially anyone connected to "the system".
It's recommended that you write your own Affidavits/Affirmations because everyone's situation, understanding, and goals will be different. Read below for examples:
Claims of Right, and Affidavits come into play only because you've entered into many invalid contracts/franchises with the GOVERNMENT and when you decide you do not want to be a part of the system, this is a simply way of severing the ties. It's official, notarized, on the record, and you can use all correspondence as evidence in a court if ever need be. Being sovereign does not mean you will not have law enforcement officer's attempt to bully you, and some will even hand you a citation. Of course, if you know how to handle yourself as a free man on the land in the court room, and keep your common law rights in tact, then eventually your local government will know that there is no point in messing with you, because they are unable to extract any money from you. Eventually you will literally become not "worth their time". No one should take sovereignty to any extreme on purpose just to entice authority. It's recommended to always be very courteous, and remember that these police men don't know that they have no right to pull you over if you have not harmed anyone. Speak to authority with a personal level of authority, and the better educated you are on your rights, and subjects related to them, the more likely the cop will walk away with his tail between his legs because you schooled him. I recommend recording interaction with police for two reasons. One: You have record of what happened, which can be good to share for learning purposes, or even better if it is a success story and two: If a cop knows he's being recording he will usually act accordingly, especially if you call him out on upholding the constitution. Remember, police men are supposed to be PEACE OFFICERS, and if you have not breached the peace and claim your common law right to travel, even if you were speeding down the highway, they have no jurisdiction over you! You are not be a "taxpayer, " in "public office," "operating in commerce". You are not a "debtor" and don't have a Social Identification Number (SIN). Many sovereigns even go so far as to take ownership of the trust created in their name at birth, and even use it to discharge their debts, because they understand that there is no lawful money. (Legal Tender? Legal and lawful are not the same thing.) It may be illegal to drive without a license, but it is lawful to travel without one and there is no statute that can deny one that right. No STATUTE can take away your rights, unless you have contracted your rights away. Many do this when they sign up for Social Security, become Taxpayers, and claim to be U.S citizens. Common law was replaced with Legislation, for a society that you do not HAVE to be part of.
You have the right to divorce the government, and sever all contracts, because the contracts are invalid. They were used against you, without your fully informed consent, without understanding the implications of the contract. There was no FULL DISCLOSURE. The contract is already invalid, based on those two points alone.
For Your ConsiderationUsing the word Affirmation or Claim, may be more effective, only by noting the definition of it:
Affidavit: An affidavit is a written sworn statement of fact voluntarily made by an affiant or deponent under an oath or affirmation administered by a person authorized to do so by law.
(NOTE THE WORD PERSON?)Affirmation: Testify to the facts; written testimony of the facts; witness statement of the facts; In law, an affirmation is a solemn declaration allowed to those who conscientiously object to taking an oath. An affirmation has exactly the same legal effect as an oath, but is usually taken to avoid the religious implications of an oath. In some jurisdictions, it may only be given if such a reason is provided.
Some people avoid Affidavits (oaths) for religious/spiritual purposes, for example:
Matthew 5:33 "Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.James 5:12 "But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
