Comment: Does your legal status change?

(See in situ)

Does your legal status change?

Does accepting handouts from the government change your legal status to that of "beneficiary of the Federal state"? As a beneficiary what are one's rights and duties?

What are the legal ramifications. Is one still a 'Citizen' as defined by the Constitution, or is one now of the collective 'citizens' as defined in the 14the Amendment.

"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."

How does one come under the jurisdiction of the United States? Perhaps by accepting benefits from the federal government?

I prefer to remain a free man on land. Who knows what is hidden in the thousands of pages of federal statues passed each year by Congress.

Free includes debt-free!
