The only ones doing “word trickery” are the people who believe and perpetuate this nonsense and delusion.
You make the claims that you derive your status from “common law,” but I have to wonder if you even know what the hell you’re talking about.
It’s according to common law principles that, upon birth you are a citizen and owe allegiance to the sovereign (emperor, king, constitutional
government, what have you).
In 1608, in what is called the Calvin’s Case
, Sir Edward Coke, who was Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas in England, established the
principle of birthright citizenship under common law. Coke noted that all persons born within any territory held by the King of England were to enjoy
the benefits of English law as subjects of the King. A person born within the King’s dominion owed allegiance to the sovereign and in turn was
entitled to the King's protection.
This is the same principle used in the United States to confer citizenship upon birth. In the landmark case United States v. Wong Kim Ark
(1898), which reaffirmed this principle, the Supreme Court opinion’s, citing Justice Swayne in United States v. Rhodes
All persons born in the allegiance of the King are natural-born subjects, and all persons born in the allegiance of the United States are
natural-born citizens. Birth and allegiance go together. Such is the rule of the common law, and it is the common law of this country, as well as of
We find no warrant for the opinion that this great principle of the common law has ever been changed in the United States.
It’s based on common law principles — that you claim you derive your status from — that you are a US citizen
upon birth, if within the
Even if you weren’t a US citizen, whenever in the jurisdiction of the United States, all persons are subject to US law. You can’t just make up a
legal status to call and declare yourselves immune from US law.
Of course I don’t expect centuries of legal precedent and history to change your deluded minds, but I hope the rational members find this
information to be useful.
