Section 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. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

I applaud you standing up for yourself in the face of this tyrannical government. You're a lot more eloquent than I will be if one of those stupid census takers shows up at my front door.
It is well settled that an officer must be either elected, appointed or commissioned. Employees cannot be made officers “by virtue of their employment.” Even if they could, I.C. 59-703 (9) states,
“"Public office" means any position in which the normal and usual duties are conducted on behalf of a governmental entity.”
The Clearfield Doctrine is explicit. The corporation registered and known as THE CITY OF BOISE CITY is listed as a ”CORPORATION” in the IDAHO SECRETARY OF STATE’S BUSINESS ENTITY database and is, therefore, “an entity entirely separate from government.” Notwithstanding any other Idaho Code section that is also superseded by Federal law, the alleged officers are NOT even employees of a “governmental entity.”
( it is the same in every state)
“ . . . the government descended to the level of a mere private corporation and takes on the character of a mere private citizen . . . For the purposes of suit, such corporations and individuals are regarded as an entity entirely separate from government.” Bank of U.S. v. Planters Bank, 9 Wheat. 22 U.S. 904, U.S. v. Erie Ry Co., 106 U.S. 327; Clearfield Trust Co. v. U.S. 318 U.S. 363 (1943).
“When governments enter the world of commerce, they are subject to the same burdens as any private firm or corporation.” U.S. v. Burr. 309 U.S. 22; See 22 U.S.C.A. 286e. Bank of U.S. v. Planters Bank of Georgia. 6 L. Ed. (9 Wheat) 244; 22 U.S.C.A. 286 et. Seq., C.R.S. 11-60-103.
An officer is defined as
“a person appointed or elected to a position of responsibility or authority in government or a private organization.” Random House Webster’s Dictionary of the Law, p. 307.

What a great addition to the thread and thanks for providing it.
There is no getting around the fact that our government operates as a corporation.
In fact it operates as a Religious Not for Profit Corporation! It's incorporated in Deleware which has the most favorable incorporating laws for foreign shell companies to hide their corporate ownership of U.S. Corporations.
It was most recently incorporated under it's present form back in 1988 under George H. W. Bush, Sr.'s administration.
Who holds stock in the corporation, and sits on it's board of directors, is not presently known by me.
Thanks for sharing that information.

well-written and engaging to say the least.
and thank you for this bit of enlightenment. this is something im most certainly going to show people
Thanks for an interesting read Proto! as always!
I find all this very interesting, with Blake Law and contract Law in general.
I'm always wondering if the continental Europe has something similar?
Well! maybe the British are more similar to you in that sense of contract Law and Admiral Law and all that, but what about France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden and Italy etc ?
Are we also incorporated to Rome's slave-trader commerce Corporation?
