even after your actual birth documents have been validated..is UNTRUE..a certificate of live birth is NOT a birth certificate....just keep grazin'...
The term "birth certificate" can refer to either the original document or a certified copy of or representation of the original record of birth. In most jurisdictions, the birth certificate is prima facie evidence that the birth occurred.
In the U.S., the keeping of vital statistics is a state function, because it is not a power assigned by the Constitution to the federal government. Yet, the federal government is extremely dependent upon this state function because the Fourteenth Amendment expressly grounds American citizenship upon birth in the United States (a jus soli system of citizenship).
The federal and state governments have traditionally cooperated to some extent to improve vital statistics. From 1900 to 1946 the U.S. Census Bureau designed standard birth certificates, collected vital statistics on a national basis, and generally sought to improve the accuracy of vital statistics. In 1946 that responsibility was passed to the U.S. Public Health Service. Unlike the British system of recording all births in "registers", the states file an individual document for each and every birth. In most states this document is entitled a "Certificate of Live Birth".

Those people are patriots, THEY WANTED TO HAVE A LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT and worked toward it, to find the truth. And they were arrested for doing so.
Yeah and America is free.. yeah, you're free to be arrested when you try to find the truth.

These nine people must have discovered something really juicy.
