We’ll start off this section with a definition
of government from Black’s Law Dictionary. Note especially
the definition of “Republican
government”, which is the kind government we have here in
Government. From the Latin gubernaculums.
Signifies the instrument, the helm, whereby the ship to which the
state was compared, was guided on its course by the “gubernator”
or helmsman, and in that view, the government is but an agency of
the state, distinguished as it must be in accurate thought from
its scheme and machinery of government.
In the United States, government consists of the executive, legislative,
and judicial branches in addition to administrative agencies.
In a broader sense, includes the federal government and all its
agencies and bureaus, state and county governments, and city and
The system of polity in a state; that form of fundamental rules
and principles which a national or state is governed, or by which
individual members of a body politic are to regulate their social
actions. A constitution, either written or unwritten, by which
the rights and duties of citizens and public officers are prescribed
and defined, as a monarchical government, a republican government,
etc. The machinery by which the sovereign power in a state
expresses its will and exercises its functions; or the framework
of political institutions, departments, and offices, by means of
which the executive, judicial, legislative, and administrative business
of the state is carried on.
The whole class or body of officeholders or functionaries considered
in the aggregate, upon whom devolves the executive, judicial, legislative,
and administrative business of the state.
In a colloquial sense, the United States or its representatives,
considered as the prosecutor in a criminal action; as in the phrase, “the
government objects to the witness.”
The regulation, restrain, supervision, or control which is exercised
upon the individual members of an organized jural society by those
invested with authority; or the act of exercising supreme political
power or control.
See also De facto government; Federal government; Judiciary;
Legislature; Seat of government.
Federal government. The government of the United States
of America, as distinguished from the governments of the several
Local government. The government or administration of a
particular locality, especially, the governmental authority of a
municipal corporation, as a city or county, over its local and individual
affairs, exercised in virtue of power delegated to it for that purpose
by the general government of the state or nation.
Mixed government. A form of government combining some of
the features of two or all of the three primary forms, viz., monarchy,
aristocracy, and democracy.
Republican government. One in which the powers of sovereignty
are vested in the people and are exercised by the people, either
directly, or through representatives chosen by the people, to
whom those powers are specially delegated. In re Duncan, 139
U.S. 449, 11 S.Ct. 573, 36 L.Ed. 219;

The important term in the above definition is the
term “state”, which is then precisely defined as follows
in that same legal dictionary:
A people permanently occupying a fixed territory bound together
by common-law habits and custom into one body politic exercising,
through the medium of an organized government, independent sovereignty
and control over all persons and things within its boundaries, capable
of making war and peace and of entering into international relations
with other communities of the globe. United States v. Kusche,
D.C.Cal., 56 F.Supp. 201 207, 208. The organization of social
life which exercises sovereign power in behalf of the people.
Delany v. Moralitis, C.C.A.Md., 136 F.2d 129, 130. In its
largest sense, a “state” is a body politic or a society
of men. Beagle v. Motor Vehicle Acc. Indemnification Corp.,
44 Misc.2d 636, 254 N.Y.S.2d 763, 765. A body of people
occupying a definite territory and politically organized under one
government. State ex re. Maisano v. Mitchell, 155 Conn.
256, 231 A.2d 539, 542. A territorial unit with a distinct
general body of law. Restatement, Second, Conflicts, §3.
Term may refer either to body politic of a nation (e.g. United States)
or to an individual government unit of such nation (e.g. California).
The people of a state, in their collective capacity, considered
as the party wronged by a criminal deed; the public; as in the title
of a cause, “The State vs. A.B.”
[Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 1407]
In a Republican Form of Government, the “state”
then, is the People both individually and collectively, who are the
sovereigns, and they,
not their public servants, govern themselves using laws that they mutually
and individually consent
to through their elected representatives. A consenting party
is one who chooses a civil domicile in a specific region and thereby
becomes a statutory "citizen". Being a constitutional citizen
does NOT make one a "consenting party" because the act of birth is
NOT an act of discretion or implied consent.
When one becomes a member of society, he
necessarily parts with some rights or privileges which, as an
individual not affected by his relations to others, he might
retain. "A body
politic," as aptly defined in the preamble of the Constitution
of Massachusetts, "is a social compact by which the whole people
covenants with each citizen, and each citizen with the whole
people, that all shall be governed by certain laws for the
common good." This does not confer power upon the whole people
to control rights which are purely and exclusively private,
Thorpe v. R. & B. Railroad Co., 27 Vt. 143; but it does
authorize the establishment of laws requiring each citizen to so
conduct himself, and so use his own property, as not
unnecessarily to injure another. This is the very essence of
government, and 125*125 has found expression in the maxim sic
utere tuo ut alienum non lędas. From this source come the police
powers, which, as was said by Mr. Chief Justice Taney in the
License Cases, 5 How. 583, "are nothing more or less than the
powers of government inherent in every sovereignty, . . . that
is to say, . . . the power to govern men and things."
Under these powers the government regulates the conduct of its
citizens one towards another, and the manner in which each shall
use his own property, when such regulation becomes necessary for
the public good. In their exercise it has been customary in
England from time immemorial, and in this country from its first
colonization, to regulate ferries, common carriers, hackmen,
bakers, millers, wharfingers, innkeepers, &c., and in so doing
to fix a maximum of charge to be made for services rendered,
accommodations furnished, and articles sold. To this day,
statutes are to be found in many of the States upon some or all
these subjects; and we think it has never yet been successfully
contended that such legislation came within any of the
constitutional prohibitions against interference with private
property. With the Fifth Amendment in force, Congress, in 1820,
conferred power upon the city of Washington "to regulate . . .
the rates of wharfage at private wharves, . . . the sweeping of
chimneys, and to fix the rates of fees therefor, . . . and the
weight and quality of bread," 3 Stat. 587, sect. 7; and, in
1848, "to make all necessary regulations respecting hackney
carriages and the rates of fare of the same, and the rates of
hauling by cartmen, wagoners, carmen, and draymen, and the rates
of commission of auctioneers," 9 id. 224, sect. 2.
[Munn. v. Illinois, 94 U.S. 113 (1876),
Declaration of Independence says “that to secure these rights,
governments are instituted among men, deriving their
from the consent
of the governed”. That consent expresses itself in several
- Choosing a domicile within a specific geographic place and
thereby consenting to the civil statutory laws of that specific place.
Why Domicile and Becoming a "Taxpayer" Require Your Consent
- Pledging allegiance to the flag of our nation or state.
- Swearing an oath. Jesus commanded us NOT to swear oaths
- Signing a government form containing a perjury statement that
subjects us to the jurisdiction of that government.
- Signing a government form obligating us to do something.
- Voting for our elected representatives and then having them
enact our laws (agreements) into positive law.
- Submitting ourselves to the jurisdiction of the court when there
is litigation. This includes entering a plea in a court of
justice when accused of a crime. Pleas must be consensual.
Judges have a name for this process of consenting to the jurisdiction
of the court. It is called making an "appearance".
Most people don't even realize that they can physically appear
in court without making an "appearance" as legally defined.
A coming into court as a party to a suit, either in person or
by attorney, whether as plaintiff or defendant. The formal
proceeding by which a defendant submits himself to the jurisdiction
of the court. The
to a court's jurisdiction.
In civil actions the parties do not normally actually appear
in person, but rather through their attorneys (who enter their
appearance by filing written pleadings, or a formal written
entry of appearance). Also, at many stages of criminal
proceedings, particularly involving minor offenses, the defendant's
attorney appears on his behalf. See e.g., Fed.R.Crim.P.
An appearance may
be either general
the former is a simple and unqualified or unrestricted submission
to the jurisdiction of the court, the latter is a submission
to the jurisdiction for some specific purpose only, not for
all the purposes of the suit. A special appearance is
for the purpose of testing or objecting to the sufficiency of
service or the jurisdiction of the court over defendant without
submitting to such jurisdiction; a general appearance is made
where the defendant waives defects of service and submits to
the jurisdiction of court. Insurance Co. of North America
v. Kunin, 175 Neb. 260, 121 N.W.2d 372, 375, 376.
- Sending our money to a public servant when they ask for it.
- Volunteering to serve in the military BEFORE we are drafted.
- Obeying the request of a public servant to do something.
Anything not consensual is therefore unjust and
the Supreme Court describes it as a “despotism”.
"It must be conceded that there are rights in every free
government beyond the control of the State [or a covetous jury or
majority of electors].
A government which recognized
no such rights, which held the lives, liberty and property of its
citizens, subject at all times to the disposition and unlimited
control of even the most democratic depository of power, is after
all a despotism. It is true that it is a despotism of the
many--of the majority, if you choose to call it so--but it is not
the less a despotism."
[Loan Ass'n v. Topeka,
87 U.S. (20 Wall.) 655, 665 (1874)]
The purpose of our system of justice is exclusively
to ensure that everything that happens in society is done only
by consent, and to punish those:
- Who deprive others of life, liberty, or property
consent. Involuntary deprivation of any one of these three
is an injury, whether or not there is a law that criminalizes the
behavior. The sole purpose law protects us by preventing such
- Who compel people to do anything either through force, or fraud,
or both. That is why kidnapping, fraud, extortion, rape, and
racketeering are all crimes.
Any good Republican government
must ask for your
individual consent in order to take your money or property through taxation
or judicial process. This is the requirement of the Fifth Amendment.
The U.S. Supreme Court explains it this way:
which a man has honestly acquired he retains full control of, subject
to these limitations: First, that he shall not use it to his neighbor's
injury, and that does not mean that he must use it for his neighbor's
benefit; second, that if he devotes it to a public use, he gives
to the public a right to control that use; and third, that whenever
the public needs require, the public may take it upon payment of
[Budd v. People of State of New York, 143 U.S. 517 (1892)]
There are only three types of governments in the
context of “consent”:
- When the government is honest, it will ask for consent directly
and thereby inform you that you and not them are in charge.
This was the
de jure government
our founders gave us.
- When the government is dishonest and deceptive and greedy and
covetous of power and money but still at least a little democratic
in form, it will do it so indirectly that you never even knew you
gave consent. In such a corrupted government those who expose
the deception and tyranny of the process by which consent was fraudulently
procured are then punished and persecuted. This is the
government we have today: one that punishes those who expose
the fraud and extortion that is the income tax and who also oppose
any other type of government tyranny.
- If the government is completely tyrannical, such as a monarchy
or dictatorship, it will completely disregard the will of the people
ask them for permission or consent to do anything. Sovereignty
resides in the king or dictator and not the people under such a
government. This is the type of government we have within
the federal zone or federal “United States”,
where the people within it are ruled by people who do not live there,
but instead by a Congress full of people who are alien to it and
who came from states of the Union.
The surest evidence that we have good government
is that it is continually asking for our consent in a very explicit
way and always reminding us that
we, and not them,
are in charge!
“Remember the word that I said to you, "A
servant is not greater than his master.' If they
persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word,
they will keep yours also.”
John 15:20, Bible, NKJV]
When people get together and decide to give consent
as a collective, they do so
only through a written
Constitution, which is a contract, or through enacted
law. The Supreme Court calls this “government by compact”:
“In Europe, the executive is synonymous with the sovereign
power of a state…where it is too commonly acquired by force
or fraud, or both…In America, however the case is widely different.
Our government is founded
upon compact [consent expressed in a written contract called a Constitution
or in positive law]. Sovereignty was, and is, in the people.”
[The Betsy, 3 (U.S.) Dall 6]
Note the above profound statement of the U.S. Supreme
Court: “In Europe, the executive is synonymous with the sovereign
power of a state…where it is too commonly acquired by force or
fraud, or both.” This is what happens when governments
are created or choose to operate without the consent of the people they
exist to serve: force or fraud. This is also exactly what happens,
for instance, in a pure democracy where the majority rules unconstrained
by a bill of rights, but it can’t happen in a Republic.
The existence of force or fraud within any government, in fact, is the
essence of tyranny. The unlawful application of force or fraud
is also precisely the same disease that now afflicts and corrupts our
allegedly republican form of government, and which has thereby transformed
it into a de facto socialist democracy which disrespects the Constitutional
rights of individuals and abuses and enslaves its citizens in violation
Thirteenth Amendment. This force or fraud is implemented mainly
Using deceptive definitions, vaguely written laws that are subject to
misinterpretation, and collusion between the Judicial and the Executive
Branches to in effect undermine the Constitution and consolidate all
power into the hands of the Executive Branch of the government.
- Creating conflicts of interest in the judicial system on the
part of judges, attorneys, and jurors. For instance, making
judges and jurors decide tax matters that will affect their tax
bill. The corruption of the judicial system started in 1938 with
the ruling in O'Malley v. Woodrough, 307 U.S. 277, 59 S.Ct. 838
- Compelling participation in government franchises and/or
refusing to protect your right to NOT participate. This:
3.1 Turns all those so compelled into public officers
within the government.
3.2. Causes the crime of impersonating a public officer.
3.3 Turns a de jure government into a de facto government.
Instituted Slavery Using Franchises, Form #05.030
- Turning a statutory "citizen" into a franchise and a public
officer in the government and interfering with common law
remedies in court, thus effectively outlawing private rights and
private property. See:
Statutory Civil Law is Law for Government and not Private
Persons, Form #05.037
4.2 De Facto
Government Scam, Form #05.043
The tools that our treasonous politicians have
used to effect this will be thoroughly documented and explained later
in the book in section 6.1.
Here is the legal definition of “compact” to
prove our point that the Constitution and all federal civil law
written in furtherance of it are indeed a “compact” and consensual
“Compact, n. An agreement or contract
between persons, nations, or states. Commonly applied to working
agreements between and among states concerning matters of mutual
concern. A contract between parties, which creates obligations
and rights capable of being enforced and contemplated as such between
the parties, in their distinct and independent characters.
A mutual consent of parties concerned respecting some property or
right that is the object of the stipulation, or something that is
to be done or forborne. See also Compact clause; Confederacy;
Interstate compact; Treaty.”
[Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 281]
Enacting a mutual agreement into “positive
law” or ratifying a Constitution then, becomes the vehicle
for expressing the fact that the People collectively agreed and consented
to the law and to accept any adverse impact that law might have on their
liberty. Public servants and the bureaucracies they work within
then, are just the apparatus or machinery that the sovereign People
use for governing themselves by mutual consent. As the definition
of “government” at the beginning of this section shows,
the apparatus and machinery of government is simply the “rudder”
that steers the ship, but the
Captain of the
ship is the People both individually and collectively, not the President
or the Supreme Court. In a true Republican Form of Government,
the REAL government is the people individually and collectively, and
not their public servants.
We will now summarize the above analysis succinctly
into a single terse definition of “government”, in the case
of our Republican Form of Government mandated by
Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution. This definition
also includes the spiritual purposes for government, which we have ignored
up to this point:
“Government. The means by which the sovereigns,
who are the People individually
and who are called the “state”,
exercise their divine and natural right directly from God to consensually
regulate and control and govern their
so as to:
1. Prevent conflicts of interest among those in the
judical system who enforce the social contract, so that
those who don't want to participate in the civil aspects of
the contract are not coerced to do so.
2. Protect your right to NOT be compelled to
participate in any government franchise, including the
statutory "citizen" or "resident" franchise.
Otherwise, it is FRAUD to claim the franchise is
3. Protect each other from harm to their life, liberty,
and property. See the last six commandments of the ten commandments
Exodus 20:12-17. The greatest protection of our liberties
comes from a
separation of powers within government, so that power cannot
concentrate and produce tyranny. This is the basis of
having a Republican Form of Government and it is called the “Separation
of Powers Doctrine” in the legal field.
4. Provide the maximum liberty to every member
of society. In the legal realm, this is called “equal
protection of the laws” and its purpose is to eliminate
partiality in judgment. The following scriptures from
God’s Laws prohibit partiality in judgment:
James 3:17. The
of Independence also says that all men are created equal
and those who are equal cannot be discriminated against or have
their liberty taken away because they are black, poor, disadvantaged,
or a “nontaxpayer”.
5. Honor their God and perfect their faith and salvation
His sacred laws, and NO OTHER LAW. See
Ecclesiastes 12:13, which says that man’s sole purpose
on earth is to fear God and keep His holy commandments.
James 2:14-26 also says that our faith is perfected by our
works of obedience to a sovereign God and His laws, and that
faith without works is dead faith.
Genesis 1:28 also identifies the source of ALL of our delegated
authority to govern ourselves, which is God Himself. Here,
in fact, is what God says on this very subject of writing laws
that conflict with God’s laws:
But to the wicked, God says:
have you to declare My statutes [write man’s vain law],
or take My covenant [the Bible] in your mouth, seeing you hate
instruction and cast My words behind you? When
you saw a thief, you consented with him, and have been a partaker
with adulterers. You give your mouth to evil, and your
tongue frames deceit. You sit and speak against your brother;
you slander your own mother’s son. These things
you have done, and I kept silent; you thought that I was altogether
like you; but I will reprove you, and set them in order before
Now consider this,
you who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be
none to deliver: Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; and to
him who orders his conduct aright [and bases it on God’s
laws] I will show the salvation of God.”
50:16-23, Bible, NKJV]
In satisfying the above requirements,
the people satisfy the first of the two great commandments to love
our God with all our heart, mind, and soul, found in
Exodus 20:2-11. The above requirements also fulfill the
second of the two great commandments to love our neighbor as ourself,
which is found in
Luke 10:27; and
James 2:8 within the Bible.
The collective result of the sovereign
people governing themselves under God’s laws found in the
Bible is protection, both while they are on this earth and after
they die. Man’s laws only protect us while we are here
in body, but God’s laws also protect as after we die and become
spirit. Therefore, a just society will base its laws entirely
and exclusively upon God’s laws so as to maximize protection
for all people both here and in the afterlife. Anything less
will produce evil in the sight of the Lord, perversion of the purposes
of government, tyranny, and abuse of the legal and governmental
apparatus for personal profit.
To answer the main question of this section on
what exactly is government in the simplest possible way:
AMERICA, GOVERNMENT IS
WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT!
EVERY ONE OF US! Why? Because in America under a Republican
Form of Government, the People are the sovereigns, and
not their public
Note that by saying the government is US, we do
NOT mean to say that we are all public officers in the government!
Rather, while we serve as jurists, voters, and statutory "Taxpayers"
we must REMAIN EXCLUSIVELY PRIVATE and beyond the civil control of
the government. Otherwise, the government transforms from de
jure to de facto. This is covered in:
Facto Government Scam, Form #05.043
The above conclusions are consistent with the Supreme
Court, which said the following on this very subject, and note the use
of the word “compact” once again:
"From the differences existing between feudal sovereignties
and Government founded on compacts, it necessarily follows that
their respective prerogatives must differ. Sovereignty
is the right to govern; a nation or State-sovereign is the person
or persons in whom that resides.
In Europe the sovereignty
is generally ascribed to the Prince; here it rests with the people;
there, the sovereign actually administers the Government; here,
never in a single instance; our Governors are the agents of the
people, and at most stand in the same relation to their sovereign,
in which regents in Europe stand to their sovereigns.
Their Princes have personal powers, dignities, and pre-eminences,
our rulers have none
but official; nor do they partake in the sovereignty otherwise,
or in any other capacity, than as private citizens."
[Chisholm, Ex'r. v. Georgia,
2 Dall. (U.S.) 419, 1 L.ed. 454, 457, 471, 472) (1794)]
The above conclusions are also completely
consistent with the words of President Abraham Lincoln, who said in
his famous Gettysburg Address during the Civil War in 1863:
“It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great
task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take
increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full
measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these
dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God,
shall have a new birth of freedom—and
that government of the
people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the
[Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address, November 19, 1863]
“. . .government of the people, by the
people, and for the people” makes the People their own governors
and government. We simply can’t have
any rulers above
us if our Constitution (Article 4, Section 2 and Fourteenth Amendment
Section1) makes everyone equal under the law and our Declaration of
Independence says “All men are created equal”. If
the Judge and the President and the Congressmen have the same rights
as us, they can’t be our rulers, and can only be our servants.
Even the Supreme Court agrees with the conclusion that the People are
the sovereigns, which makes them their OWN governors and rulers:
Juilliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421 (1884) : “There
is no such thing as a power of inherent sovereignty in the government
of the United States…In this country
sovereignty resides in
the people, and Congress can exercise no power which they have not,
by their Constitution entrusted to it. All else is withheld.”
Hale v. Henkel, 201
U.S. 43 (1906) : “His
rights are such as existed
by the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the
State, and can only be taken from him by due process
of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his
rights are a refusal to incriminate himself, and the immunity of
himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under a warrant
of the law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does
not trespass upon their rights.”
Perry v. U.S., 294 U.S.
330 (1935): “In the United States, sovereignty
resides in the people…the Congress cannot invoke sovereign
power of the People to override their will as thus declared.”
Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118
U.S. 356 (1886) : “Sovereignty itself is,
of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of
law…While sovereign powers are delegated to…the government,
sovereignty itself remains with the people.”
Another very important inference about
the meaning of government is in order at this point. If WE are
the government here in America, and if WE accept any money from a public
servant, then WE also become “employees”
of the government within a legal context. The tax code is written
to apply entirely and exclusively
to instrumentalities, “public officials”, and “employees”
of the federal government, which is
exactly what we
become if we accept any
amount of money from our public servants that we did not in fact earn
with our own personal sweat and labor. When public servants try
to bribe you with your own stolen “tax” money using a socialist
handout program, they in effect are attempting to bring you under the
control of their laws as “employees”
of the government! The only thing the government can lawfully
spend money on is a "public purpose", which means you must
be a federal officer, agent, employee, or instrumentality on official
business executing a constitutionally authorized government function
in order to lawfully receive public funds. Otherwise, you are
committing theft and embezzlement by converting public funds to a private
use. Remember that the primary purpose of law is to control and
limit what government can do so that the true sovereigns, the people,
will be LEFT ALONE by the government.
"The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions
favorable to the pursuit of happiness. They recognized the significance
of man's spiritual nature, of his feelings and of his intellect.
They knew that only a part of the pain, pleasure and satisfactions
of life are to be found in material things. They sought to protect
Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and their
sensations. They conferred,
as against the Government, the right to be let alone - the most
comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men."
[Olmstead v. United States,
277 U.S. 438, 478 (1928)(Brandeis, J., dissenting); see
also Washington v. Harper,
494 U.S. 210(1990)]
This status of having accepted their
stolen loot and thereby becoming connected to them as an “employee”
is the status described in the Internal Revenue Code as being “effectively
connected with a
trade or business in the United States”. Those who are “effectively
connected” are plugged into the government matrix. This
point will become very important later on in Chapter 5, where we talk
about who the proper subjects of the Internal Revenue Code truly are.
This status of being “effectively connected” really means
that we have become a government whore and adulterer. The legal
dictionary defines “commerce” as intercourse:
by way of trade and traffic between different peoples or states
and the citizens or inhabitants thereof, including not only the
purchase, sale, and exchange of commodities, but also the instrumentalities
[governments] and agencies by which it is promoted and the means
and appliances by which it is carried on…”
[Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 269]
The Bible describes believers (us) as
“For your Maker
is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer
is the Holy One of Israel; he is called the God of the whole earth,
for the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken and grieved in
spirit, like a youthful wife when you were refused,” says
54:5-6, Bible, NKJV]
When we as God’s bride accept stolen loot,
and involve ourselves in "commerce"
with our public servants in the government, we become adulterers and
friends of the world:
“Where do wars and fights come from among you?
Do they not come from
your desires for pleasure [unearned money] that war in your members
[and your democratic governments]? You lust [after other
people's money] and do not have. You murder [the
unborn to increase your standard of living] and covet [the unearned]
and cannot obtain [except by empowering your government to STEAL
for you!]. You fight and war [against the rich and the nontaxpayers
to subsidize your idleness]. Yet you do not have because you do
not ask [the Lord, but instead ask the deceitful government].
You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you
may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses!
Do you not know that friendship
with the world [or the governments of the world] is enmity with
God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of
the world [or the governments of the world] makes himself an enemy
4:4 , Bible, NKJV]
Our disclaimer defines "government" as follows:
4. MEANING OF WORDS
The term "government" is defined to include that group of people dedicated to the protection of purely and exclusively PRIVATE RIGHTS and PRIVATE PROPERTY that are absolutely and exclusively owned by a truly free and sovereign human being who is EQUAL to the government in the eyes of the law per the Declaration of Independence. It excludes the protection of PUBLIC rights or PUBLIC privileges (franchises, Form #05.030) and collective rights (Form #12.024) because of the tendency to subordinate PRIVATE rights to PUBLIC rights due to the CRIMINAL conflict of financial interest on the part of those in the alleged "government" (18 U.S.C. §208, 28 U.S.C. §§144, and 455). See Separation Between Public and Private Rights Course, Form #12.025 for the distinctions between PUBILC and PRIVATE.
“As expressed otherwise, the powers delegated to a public officer are held in trust for the people and are to be exercised in behalf of the government or of all citizens who may need the intervention of the officer.  Furthermore, the view has been expressed that all public officers, within whatever branch and whatever level of government, and whatever be their private vocations, are trustees of the people, and accordingly labor under every disability and prohibition imposed by law upon trustees relative to the making of personal financial gain from a discharge of their trusts.  That is, a public officer occupies a fiduciary relationship to the political entity on whose behalf he or she serves.  and owes a fiduciary duty to the public.  It has been said that the fiduciary responsibilities of a public officer cannot be less than those of a private individual. Furthermore, it has been stated that any enterprise undertaken by the public official which tends to weaken public confidence and undermine the sense of security for individual [PRIVATE] rights is against public policy. “

Anything done CIVILLY for the benefit of those working IN the government at the involuntary, enforced, coerced, or compelled (Form #05.003) expense of PRIVATE free humans is classified as DE FACTO (Form #05.043), non-governmental, PRIVATE business activity beyond the core purpose of government that cannot and should not be protected by official, judicial, or sovereign immunity. Click here (Form #11.401) for a detailed exposition of ALL of the illegal methods of enforcement (Form #05.032) and duress (Form #02.005). "Duress" as used here INCLUDES any type of LEGAL DECEPTION, Form #05.014 or any attempt to insulate government workers from responsibility or accountability for their false or misleading statements (Form #05.014 and Form 12.021 Video 4) forms, or publications (Form #05.007 and Form #12.023). The only type of enforcement by a DE JURE government that can or should be compelled and lawful is CRIMINAL or COMMON LAW enforcement where a SPECIFIC private human has been injured, not CIVIL statutory enforcement (a franchise, Form #05.030).
Every type of DE JURE CIVIL governmental service or regulation MUST be voluntary and ALL must be offered the right to NOT participate on every governmental form that administers such a CIVIL program. It shall mandatorily, publicly, and NOTORIOUSLY be enforced and prosecuted as a crime NOT to offer the right to NOT PARTICIPATE in any CIVIL STATUTORY activity of government or to call a service "VOLUNTARY" but actively interfere with and/or persecute those who REFUSE to volunteer or INSIST on unvolunteering. All statements by any government actor or government form or publication relating to the right to volunteer shall be treated as statements under penalty of perjury for which the head of the governmental department shall be help PERSONALLY liable if false. EVERY CIVIL "benefit" or activity offered by any government MUST identify at the beginning of ever law creating the program that the program is VOLUNTARY and HOW specifically to UNVOLUNTEER or quit the program. Any violation of these rules makes the activity NON-GOVERNMENTAL in nature AND makes those offering the program into a DE FACTO government (Form #05.043). The Declaration of Independence says that all "just powers" of government derive from the CONSENT of those governed. Any attempt to CIVILLY enforce MUST be preceded by an explicit written attempt to procure consent, to not punish those who DO NOT consent, and to not PRESUME consent by virtue of even submitting a government form that does not IDENTIFY that submission of the form is an IMPLIED act of consent (Form #05.003). This ensures "justice" in a constitutional sense, which is legally defined as "the right to be left alone". For the purposes of this website, those who do not consent to ANYTHING civil are referred to "non-resident non-persons" (Form #05.020). An example of such a human would be a devout Christian who is acting in complete obedience to the word of God in all their interactions with anyone and everyone in government. Any attempt by a PRIVATE human to consent to any CIVIL STATUTORY offering by any government (a franchise, Form #05.030) is a violation of their delegation of authority order from God (Form #13.007) that places them OUTSIDE the protection of God under the Bible.
Under this legal definition of "government" the IDEAL and DE JURE government is one that:
- The States cannot offer THEIR taxable franchises within federal territory and the FEDERAL government may not establish taxable franchises within the territorial borders of the states. This limitation was acknowledged by the U.S. Supreme Court in the License Tax Cases, 72 U.S. 462 (1866) and continues to this day but is UNCONSTITUTIONALLY ignored more by fiat and practice than by law.
- Has the administrative burden of proof IN WRITING to prove to a common law jury of your peers that you CONSENTED in writing to the CIVIL service or offering before they may COMMENCE administrative enforcement of any kind against you. Such administrative enforcement includes, but is not limited to administrative liens, administrative levies, administrative summons, or contacting third parties about you. This ensures that you CANNOT become the unlawful victim of a USUALLY FALSE PRESUMPTION (Form #05.017) about your CIVIL STATUS (Form #13.008) that ultimately leads to CRIMINAL IDENTITY THEFT (Form #05.046). The decision maker on whether you have CONSENTED should NOT be anyone in the AGENCY that administers the service or benefit and should NEVER be ADMINISTRATIVE. It should be JUDICIAL.
- Judges making decisions about the payment of any CIVIL SERVICE fee may NOT participate in ANY of the programs they are deciding on and may NOT be "taxpayers" under the I.R.C. Subtitle A Income tax. This creates a criminal financial conflict of interest that denies due process to all those who are targeted for enforcement. This sort of corruption was abused to unlawfully expand the income tax and the Social Security program OUTSIDE of their lawful territorial extent (Form #05.018). See Lucas v. Earl, 281 U.S. 111 (1930), O'Malley v. Woodrough, 307 U.S. 277 (1939) and later in Hatter v. U.S, 532 U.S. 557 (2001).
- EVERY CIVIL service offered by any government MUST be subject to choice and competition, in order to ensure accountability and efficiency in delivering the service. This INCLUDES the minting of substance based currency. The government should NOT have a monopoly on ANY service, including money or even the postal service. All such monopolies are inevitably abused to institute duress and destroy the autonomy and sovereignty and EQUALTY of everyone else.
- CANNOT "bundle" any service with any other in order to FORCE you to buy MORE services than you want. Bundling removes choice and autonomy and constitutes biblical "usury". For instance, it CANNOT:
5.1. Use "driver licensing" to FORCE people to sign up for Social Security by forcing them to provide a "franchise license number" called an SSN or TIN in order to procure the PRIVILEGE of "driving", meaning using the commercial roadways FOR HIRE and at a profit.
5.2. Revoke driver licenses as a method of enforcing ANY OTHER franchise or commercial obligation, including but not limited to child support, taxes, etc.
5.3. Use funds from ONE program to "prop up" or support another. For instance, they cannot use Social Security as a way to recruit "taxpayers" of other services or the income tax. This ensures that EVERY PROGRAM stands on its own two feet and ensures that those paying for one program do not have to subsidize failing OTHER programs that are not self-supporting. It also ensures that the government MUST follow the SAME free market rules that every other business must follow for any of the CIVIL services it competes with other businesses to deliver.
5.4 Piggyback STATE income taxes onto FEDERAL income taxes, make the FEDERAL government the tax collector for STATE TAXES, or the STATES into tax collectors for the FEDERAL government.
- Can lawfully enforce the CRIMINAL laws without your express consent.
- Can lawfully COMPEL you to pay for BASIC SERVICES of the courts, jails, military, and ROADS and NO OTHERS. EVERYONE pays the same EQUAL amount for these services.
- Sends you an ITEMIZED annual bill for CIVIL services that you have contracted in writing to procure. That bill should include a signed copy of your consent for EACH individual CIVIL service or "social insurance". Such "social services" include anything that costs the government money to provide BEYOND the BASIC SERVICES, such as health insurance, health care, Social Security, Medicare, etc.
- If you do not pay the ITEMIZED annual bill for the services you EXPRESSLY consented to, the government should have the right to collect ITS obligations the SAME way as any OTHER PRIVATE human. That means they can administratively lien your real or personal property, but ONLY if YOU can do the same thing to THEM for services or property THEY have procured from you either voluntarily or involuntarily. Otherwise, they must go to court IN EQUITY to collect, and MUST produce evidence of consent to EACH service they seek payment or collection for. In other words, they have to follow the SAME rules as every private human for the collection of CIVIL obligations that are in default. Otherwise, they have superior or supernatural powers and become a pagan deity and you become the compelled WORSHIPPER of that pagan deity. See Socialism: The New American Civil Religion, Form #05.016 for details on all the BAD things that happen by turning government into such a CIVIL RELIGION.
