I am reading The Red Amendment right now. I've been researching the whole patriot/freeman on the land/sovereign citizen stuff for a couple years
now. It's a bunch of half-truths. The Red Amendment & the Peoples Awareness Coalition is the real deal. Here's the skinny as i understand it so
Prior to the 14th Amendment, the United States was always referred to as a collective, a 'they' or 'their' or 'them' as it should be. The
United States is a federation of sovereign states (nations), a union. People were citizens of their state (nation). They were state nationals.
A13.1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted,
shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
The 14th Amendment changed that. A usurper government was created named 'The United States'. The 'United States became an 'it', an entity unto
itself. The 14th Amendment also created a 2nd citizenship, that of the federal government. We became dual citizens, a state national AND a federal
citizen of this usurper de facto gov.
A14.1. 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.
We are in violation of our rightful nationality. We are insurgents. We are subject to the private
law of the de facto gov 'The United
States' that was created. When we vote for the officers of this usurper government, we engage in rebellion as he states on p36 of TRA & eliminating
extraneous text of A14, sec 2:
A14.2. The right to vote at any election...is denied...except for participation in rebellion, or other crime..."
There is so much more, but i don't want to butcher the work of LB Bork. I want to really understand it all before i comment much further.
The 'Expatriation Act' (actually Public Law 15; United States Statues at Large, chapter 249, pps 223-224 (1868)) allows for one to lawfully
expatriate, to remove oneself from federal citizenship. You are no longer part of the de facto government nor subject to it (no income tax, no
heeding statues or codes, etc), but you also can no longer benefit from it either (no collecting SS, no medicare, etc). It is true freedom under the
de jure government of custom & practice, but with it comes true responsibility. Uncle Sam won't be there to bail you out. You're on your own, just
like how this union of nations was founded.
The goal of PAC is to withdraw from the de facto gov & let it wither & die.
