I have heard about the sovereign movement but I considered it a myth.
You are telling me that you can get away with all those things without any repercussions
it sounds nice but I always found it a little hard to believe and if it is possible
you practically have to go to law school to understand how to free yourself.

Common law is basically about harming another, and so we have to be a little careful about, not giving our power away no matter what, in that not everything that seems to be a law to protect people is good, though some of it is definitely good.

Oh, wait, I forgot to mention that I am licensed Merchant Marine officer, and have been since I was 19. Whoops. So I have always been under Maritime Law, and knew it. Therefore I studied up on it a bit. You are ALL operating under Maritime Law, or the UCC as it is now known. All you have to do is beat them at their own game.
Admiralty and Maritime Law
A field of law relating to, and arising from, the practice of the admiralty courts (tribunals that exercise jurisdiction over all contracts, torts, offenses, or injuries within maritime law) that regulates and settles special problems associated with sea navigation and commerce.
60 Minutes' Byron Pitt had a superb segment last night on the sovereign citizens movement, springboarding from the tragic case of Jerry and Joe Kane, two sovereign citizens who mowed down a couple of West Memphis, Arkansas, police officers before themselves being killed.
The incident was yet another reminder that one of the most significant ongoing threats to law enforcement officers in this country comes from right-wing extremists of the Patriot/"sovereign citizen" variety -- people who take Republicans' government-bashing rhetoric to its illogical extreme and declare themselves free of federal laws and functionally laws unto themselves.

You decide. I no longer live by public local state or government laws. But English Common Law.
The American way is believing in The Constitution
I protect myself from The bankers stealing my money.
It means although I still pay, that I dont have to pay my mortgage and no body can do # about it.
It means I dont have to pay traffic tickets or be documented as a cocky mamy bull# licensed driver.
It means that you cant sue me, the government cant sue me.
It means that THE BANKERS AND TPTB HAVE PAYED OFF MY DEBTS by means of debt bonds.
It means that I can walk into any bank I want and ask for these bonds and refusal means that that bank would have do deal with stacks of paperwork and the American court system.
It means that no one man or court can decide my fate.
It means that I can smoke my mary jane and big brother cant do # about it.
It means that I can grow my mary jane and big brother cant do # about it.
It means that I truly I have my civil liberties I have my civil rights given to me by my birth as a human not as an American.
IT MEANS THAT I AM A REAL AMERICAN AND HAVE THE RIGHTS OF LIFE AND LIBERTY FREEDOM HAPPINESS AND THE TRUE AMERICAN WAY AS IT IS DESCRIBED IN THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN AMENDMENT RIGHTS THAT WERE GIVEN TO ME AS A BIRTH RIGHT. Even if I am no longer an American citizen I am more free than probably everyone on this damn site.
iT MEANS THAT YOU DONT AND THAT YOU ARE NO AMERICAN CITIZEN BUT RATHER AND AMERICAN CAPTIVE.
Nuff said... DONE.
