IT'S LONG, BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT OF YOUR LIFE. If the Constitution doesnt apply to you, then what is the point of arguing it?

A "citizen of the United States" is a term that specifically means a "Federal citizen". A federal citizen has "civil rights" not "human rights" and as a creation of Congress is under their direct and complete authority.
A "citizen of the United States" is a term created by the 14th Amendment.
A "state Citizen" on the other hand, is someone who is born in a state of the Union, and one that is protected by the organic Constitution of the union of states, and is not subject to complete Congressional control.
One need not be a "citizen of the United States", unless they wish to give up their human rights in exchange for civil rights.
here is the oath one would take to give up their state rights:
- The Oath of Allegiance to the United States
The following is the text of the Oath of Allegiance:
I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;
that I will support and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic;
that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law;
that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law;
that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and
that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.
By taking this oath, or by checking he U.S. citizen box on birth certificates and Social Security forms, you volunteer ito servitude and give up your freedom. The 13th Amendment made it crystal clear that only
IN-Voluntary servitude was forbidden!
Look at what the Courts have said regarding his issue:
- "[W]e find nothing…which requires that a citizen of a state must also be a citizen of the United States, if no question of federal rights or jurisdiction is involved."
[Crosse v. Bd. of Supvrs of Elections, 221 A.2d. 431 (1966) ]
- "United States citizenship does not entitle citizens to rights and privileges of state citizenship."
[K. Tashiro v. Jordan, 201 Cal. 236, 256 P. 545 (1927), 48 Supreme Court. 527.]
- "We might say that such regulations were unjust, tyrannical, unfit for the regulation of an intelligent state; but, if rights of a citizen are thereby violated, they are of that fundamental class, derived from his position as a citizen of the state, and not those limited rights belonging to him as a citizen of the United States; and such was the decision in Corfield v. Coryell."
[The United States v. Susan B. Anthony (11 2nd. Jud. Cir.] 200, 1873)
- "The right to trial by jury in civil cases, guaranteed by the 7th Amendment…and the right to bear arms guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment…have been distinctly held not to be privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States guaranteed by the 14th Amendment…and in effect the same decision was made in respect of the guarantee against prosecution, except by indictment of a grand jury, contained in the 5th Amendment…and in respect of the right to be confronted with witnesses, contained in the 6th Amendment…it was held that the indictment, made indispensable by the 5th Amendment, and trial by jury guaranteed by the 6th Amendment, were not privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States, as those words were used in the 14th Amendment. We conclude, therefore, that the exemption from compulsory self-incrimination is not a privilege or immunity of National citizenship guaranteed by this clause of the 14th Amendment."
[Twining v. New Jersey, 211 US 78, 98-99]
–plural noun ( often initial capital letters )
rights to personal liberty established by the 13th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and certain Congressional acts, esp. as applied to an individual or a minority group.
the rights to full legal, social, and economic equality extended to blacks.
(law) any basic right or freedom to which all human beings are entitled and in whose exercise a government may not interfere (including rights to life and liberty as well as freedom of thought and expression and equality before the law)
"citizens of the United States" are Federal citizens with "civil rights" and "state Citizens" are Constitutional Citizens with fundamental human rights
"A 'civil right' is considered a right given and protected by law, and a person's enjoyment thereof is regulated entirely by the law that creates it."
82 CA 369, 373, 255, P 760.
