I am studying all this regarding the tow Constitutions and the corporate government vs. the de jure government.
As I understand, the Corporate United States was formed by the Act of 1871, right?
I also understand that the 14th Amendment, stipulates:
"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."
The case has been made that the lower case "c" in "citizen" is referring to the corporate citizen under the jurisdiction of the corporation of the United States.
What I don't get is how can this be when the 14th amendment was ratified in 1868, three years before the forming of the corporation called the United States?
I would sure like clarification on this. This is not a trick question. I am involved in the de jure government restoration movement, and have been reading Julius' comments with agreement in mind, but while following all the links to confirm for myself, I happened to check the dates of the amendments for historical and chronological reference when I discovered the ratification date of the 14th amendment. I can't get past this fact.
Anybody have an answer for this?
Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
