Comment: You've got the title correct, but for the wrong reasons.

You've got the title correct, but for the wrong reasons.

It has nothing to do with any "incorporation" issues that you bring up.

It has to do with the 14th Amendment.

If you are a "citizen of the United States" then that means you are a SUBJECT of the United States.

There are several SCOTUS cases documenting the distinctions and the very limited rights that a 14th Amendment citizen has, compared to a Citizen of one of the several States.

The modern dilemma is that most people routinely claim 14th Amendment citizenship, which is essentially claiming subject status, thus not claiming their true status of Citizen of the States, and thus enjoying the Constitutional protections of their inalienable rights.

Subjects don't have inalienable rights, they have government granted privileges.

Stop erroneously claiming you are a subject.
