Sovereign Citizens DefinedSubmitted by Anthony in AR on Sat, 08/30/2014 - 12:46
I wanted to talk about this for people that think this movement has ANY credibility, these people have no standing in law, period.
Let's define the terms using Supreme Court Cases and the 14th Amendment...
"The very meaning of 'sovereignty' is that the decree of the sovereign makes law." American [Banana Co. v. United Fruit Co., 29 S.Ct. 511, 513, 213 U.S. 347, 53 L.Ed. 826, 19 Ann.Cas. 1047].
“Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts And the law is the definition and limitation of power…” [Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 US 356, 370 Quotiens dubia interpretatio libertatis est, secundum libertatem respondendum erit]
Now let's define Citizen
Fourteenth Ammendment Section 1. - All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges ... <----(look here, citizens don't even have rights, they are given privileges.)
The very term sovereign citizen is like saying you are "One of the people, who are sovereigns, but you are subject to law. You are a "Master Slave".
You must be very careful using the word "citizen" in a court room. This is basically admitting they have jurisdiction over you.
That's all, carry on... :)
