You do consent to being governed by the "De Facto" US federal government simply by being a citizen. Its tacit consent and until you formally
withdraw your consent you are subject to Congress under all laws since the 14th amendment.
I do agree that the US federal government; the federal corporation as it is defined in 28 USC §3002(15)(a) and is synonymous with the District of
Columbia as defined in 26 USC §7701(a)(9) and (a)(10) IS 'De Facto' and not the 'de jure' government of our Republic. As for 'citizens' One
must always keep in mind the two context in which the national government operates: (1) Constitutional and (2) Statutory.
(1) Men and Women born in the United States of America [the nation] and are domiciled in the exclusive jurisdiction of any of the 50 states of the
Union, are: 'nationals but not citizens' under 8 USC §1101(a)(21). These are constitutional citizens aka your 14th amendment citizens.
(2) Statutory citizens are men and women domiciled within federal territory within the [geographical] United States have all of the following status'
attached to them [just to name a few]:
A) 'U.S. Citizen' per 8 USC §1401
B) 'U.S. Person' per 26 USC §7701(a)(30)
C) 'Residents' (aliens) per 26 USC §7701(b)(1)(A)
D) 'Aliens' (born in foreign countries) per 8 USC §1101(a)(3)
E) 'National of the United States' per 28 USC §1101(a)(22)(A)
It is also important to remember that the term 'United States' may be used in three distinct and separate senses: (1) Describes our sovereign
country comparable to all other earthly nations. (2) Designates the [federal] territory over which the federal government is sovereign. (3) Pertaining
to the sovereign states of the Union united by and under the Constitution. These 'contexts' were affirmed by the Supreme Court in Hooven &Allison
Co. v. Evatt, 324 U.S. 652, (1945)
As for 'sovereign citizen'... That term is oxymoronic, at least in a statutory context. It also has no legal standing that I have found. Personally,
I stay away from that term and the terms 'human' and 'sovereign' as well. I use 'Man' [or 'Woman'] since 'Man' is inherently sovereign and
endowed 'unalienable' rights - 'unalienable' meaning not able to be sold or transferred.
The 'tacit consent' you mention is tied directly to 'domicile'... and you can easily consent to have your 'domicile' be IN Federal territory
without even being present ON federal territory reference Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 17(b). Our government can only regulate what it creates,
and it creates 'public offices' that can only be domiciled in the District of Columbia mandated by 4 USC §72. It then offers these 'offices' via
government benefit 'franchises'; social security, student loans, the ACA, etc. The great thing about franchises, is you can disenfranchise at
anytime. It is not simple. The 'law' will forever PRESUME your [statutory] status unless you are eternally vigilant and rebut, define and allow for
NO presumptions to be made. For example; want to withdrawal from Social Security? File a SSA-521. Want to terminate fiduciary responsibility of said
SSN? File IRS form 56. I have over simplified for illustrative purposes. Govt froms are notorious for presuming status, and it takes A LOT of effort
(writing, defining, and rebutting) to ensure that they cannot presume anything.
The Supreme Court has noted that 'Constitutional rights do not apply to "public officers" but they do protect private conduct'. Rutan v.
Republican Party of Illinois, 497 U.S. 62 (1990). Likewise, 'the ability to regulate "private conduct" is repugnant to the constitution. City of
Boerne v. Florez, Archbishop of San Antionio, 521 U.S. 507 (1997) and Edmonson v. Leesville Concrete Company, 500 U.S. 614 (1991). To tie it back to
Downes v. Bidwell it was also stated that the only place in the country were Constitutional rights DO NOT EXIST and everything is a PRIVILEGE is on
This is a very complex subject and one I personally love studying. Just wait till you realize that every state of the Union is firstly a republic
[commonwealth] (See Black's Law Dictionary 6th page 1302) but has a second 'corporate' jurisdiction that includes only federal territory within the
geographical border of said republic state and is generally operated under the title 'The State of ______' and that secondary jurisdiction is
shared with the federal government and acts an instrumentality of the United States [Federal government] under the authorities of the Assimilated
Crimes Act, the Rules of Decision Act, the Buck Act, 28 USC §2679(c), the Internal Revenue Code, and the Agreement on Coordination of Tax
Administration (A.C.T.A.), thus qualifying as a 'possession' and therefore a 'State' in Statute (4 USC §110(d)).
Not only must one disenfranchise the 'United States', but one must also disenfranchise 'the State'.
