How many DP members have filed an affidavit of sovereignty?Submitted by vincebodie on Wed, 10/15/2008 - 18:09
I'm working on one right now, using bits and pieces of examples I've found all over the web. As I explained it to my wife, it is nothing more than a safeguard for my inalienable rights, through a public proclamation of who I am politically and how I will allow government agencies, corporations, and other fictional entities to deal with me when proper terms are not disclosed.
I have found enough evidence to convince me that this is a worthwhile effort which can protect me from unwarranted trespass into my private life without my authorization. In other words, it is more of a defensive maneuver than an offensive one.
There are apparently some people out there attempting to use this as an offensive maneuver to "break into" and take advantage of the system rather than to protect themselves from it. I am referring specifically to Winston Shrout, Sam Kennedy, etc. and their purported successes in using IRS forms like the 1099-OID and so on to get massive refunds on their income taxes, using promissory notes to pay off auto and home loans, etc. Despite my recent post about a "Dr. Kennedy" interview with a man named Tom Schultz, I am very skeptical about some of these processes. Pardon me for getting caught up in the moment... ;-)
That said, I do believe that there is much validity to the basic premises behind many of the defensive tactics being used, and that if there are efforts being made to intentionally stretch the limits of what really does work in order to ensnare the misinformed, it is evidence that there is solid footing behind some of the more rational approaches to using these methods.
I'm wondering if anyone here has any stories they'd like to share.
p.s. - here's a link to the work in progress:
