SOURCE Path to Freedom, Form #09.015 (OFFSITE LINK)

The most important principles we want to emphasize throughout this document in order for you to protect and defend your status as free, Sovereign, and “foreign” but not “alien” in respect to a government that is obviously totally corrupted are that:

1.   You must study and learn the law if you want to be free.

“One who turns his ear from hearing the law [God's law or man's law], even his prayer is an abomination.”
Prov. 28:9 , Bible, NKJV]


“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

[Joshua 1:8-9 , Bible, NKJV,
IMPLICATION:  If you aren't reading and trying to obey God's law daily, then you're not doing God's will and you will not prosper]


"But this crowd that does not know [and quote and follow and use] the law is accursed.”

[John 7:49, Bible, NKJV]

"Salvation is far from the wicked, For they do not seek Your [God's] statutes."

[Psalms 119:155, Bible, NKJV]

"Every man is supposed to know the law. A party who makes a contract [or enters into a franchise, which is also a contract] with an officer [of the government] without having it reduced to writing is knowingly accessory to a violation of duty on his part. Such a party aids in the violation of the law."

[Clark v. United States, 95 U.S. 539 (1877)]

2.       You must learn how to diligently seek, discern, accept, and act on the Truth:

2.1.     The truth is the most important thing you can possess.

"Buy the truth, and do not sell it, also wisdom and instruction and understanding."  

[Prov. 23:23, Bible, NKJV]

“Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding;
For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver,
And her gain than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies,
And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.”

[Prov. 3:13-15, Bible, NKJV]

2.2.     The only source of absolute, unchanging Truth is God.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
[John 14:6, Bible, NKJV]

"Sanctify them by Your truth. Your [God's] word is truth."
[John 17:17, Bible, NKJV]

"The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever."
[Psalm 119:160, Bible, NKJV]

"Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And Your law is truth."
[Psalm 119:142, Bible, NKJV]

2.3.     Knowledge and understanding of the Truth BEGINS with loving and knowing God:

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

[Prov. 1:7, Bible, NKJV]


The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.”

[Prov. 8:13, Bible, NKJV]

2.4.     The product of seeking the Truth is knowledge and wisdom.

“For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;”

[Prov. 2:6, Bible, NKJV]


“I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, And find out knowledge and discretion.”

[Prov. 8:12, Bible, NKJV]

2.5.The wisdom that results from seeking truth will unavoidably cause much grief and sorrow.  This grief and sorrow will result from the realization of how hopelessly corrupt man and every creation of men truly is and why we desperately need God.  This explains why all the sin and sorrow in the world began from Adam and Eve eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge:

“For in much wisdom is much grief,
And he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.”
[Eccl. 1:18, Bible, NKJV]

2.6.     The reason people avoid the truth and are enticed by a lying media and a lying government is because they want to avoid the grief and sorrow that results from knowing the truth.  This avoidance of the truth will ultimately lead them to rebel against and offend God and to commit idolatry towards government:

Woe to the rebellious children,” says the Lord, “Who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who walk to go down to Egypt, and have not asked My advice, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharoah [the “government”], and to trust in the shadow of Egypt [or the District of Criminals, Washington, D.C. in this case]!  Therefore the strength of Pharoah shall be your shame, and trust in the shadow of Egypt shall be your humiliation

Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll, that it may be for time to come, forever and ever: that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the law of the Lord; who say to the seers, “Do not see,” and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things’ Speak to us smooth [politically correct] things, prophesy deceits.  Get out of the way, turn aside from the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.” 

Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel:

Because you despise this word [the Truth], and trust in oppression and perversity, and rely on them, therefore this iniquity shall be to you like a breach ready to fall, a bulge in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant.  And He shall break it like the breaking of the potter’s vessel, which is broken in pieces; He shall not spare.  So there shall not be found among its fragments a shard to take fire from the hearth, or to take water from the cistern.” 

[Isaiah 30:1-3, 8-14, Bible, NKJV]

2.7.     The Truth is codified in God’s Holy Laws:

Laws of the Bible, Form #13.001

2.8.     The Truth can be verified:
2.8.1.  By the Holy Spirit in the case of spiritual matters.
2.8.2.  By evidence in the legal field.  Anything not based on evidence is a state-sponsored religion and not a REAL law.
2.9.     The Truth never conflicts with itself.  Anyone who contradicts themselves is a liar.

“But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light [Truth] is not in him.”

[John 11:10, Bible, NKJV]

It is, of course, true that statutory construction “is a holistic endeavor” and that the meaning of a provision is “clarified by the remainder of the statutory scheme ... [when] only one of the permissible meanings produces a substantive effect that is compatible with the rest of the law.” United Sav. Assn. of Tex. v. Timbers of Inwood Forest Associates, Ltd., 484 U.S. 365, 371, 108 S.Ct. 626, 98 L.Ed.2d 740 (1988).

[U.S. v. Cleveland Indians Baseball Co., 532 U.S. 200, 121 S.Ct. 1433 (2001)]

2.10. The Truth is best obtained from those who are not trying to sell you anything:

“It is good for nothing,” cries the buyer; But when he has gone his way, then he boasts.

[Prov. 20:14, Bible, NKJV]

2.11. If, in seeking the truth, you become confused, it is usually because someone with an agenda is trying to hide or conceal the truth, usually with “words of art” and deception:

“For where [government] envy and self-seeking [of money they are not entitled to] exist, confusion [and deception] and every evil thing will be there.” 

[James 3:16 , Bible, NKJV]

Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You?  They gather together against the life of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood.  But the Lord has been my defense, and my God the rock of my refuge.  He has brought on them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; the Lord our God shall cut them off.” 

[Psalms 94:20-23, Bible, NKJV]

2.12. If you seek to eliminate confusion, ask of the Lord in all sincerity of heart and in fervent prayer, and it will be revealed to you:

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”

[James 1:5, Bible, NKJV]

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.”

[Prov. 3:5-6, Bible, NKJV]

2.13. Those who refuse to learn, accept, and act upon the Truth will first be deceived and ultimately destroyed:

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He [God] who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.  And then the lawless one [Satan] will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.  The coming of the lawless one [Satan] is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved [don’t be one of them!] And for this reason God will send them strong delusion [from their own government], that they should believe a lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 

[2 Thess. 2:3-17, Bible, NKJV]

3.       If you find yourself confused about the meaning of a legal term, the following guidelines apply for arbitrating any dispute about the meaning of the term:

3.1.     You aren't allowed to PRESUME what the word means. All presumption is a violation of due process of law for those protected by the Constitution because physically present within a constitutional and not statutory "State", and also results in the creation of a state-sponsored religion in violation of the First Amendment if the presumption causes a surrender of rights to the government or destroys equal protection. See:

Presumption: Chief Weapon for Unlawfully Enlarging Federal Jurisdiction, Form #05.017

3.2.     The maxim of law applies that if it isn't expressly included and authorized somewhere in the statutes, then it must be presumed to be purposefully unauthorized and excluded.  In that sense, all law functions as a delegation of authority order from the Sovereign People, We the People, and public servants cannot add to that delegation order using presumptions or vague definitions.

"Expressio unius est exclusio alterius.  A maxim of statutory interpretation meaning that the expression of one thing is the exclusion of another.  Burgin v. Forbes, 293 Ky. 456, 169 S.W.2d 321, 325; Newblock v. Bowles, 170 Okl. 487, 40 P.2d 1097, 1100.Mention of one thing implies exclusion of another.  When certain persons or things are specified in a law, contract, or will, an intention to exclude all others from its operation may be inferred.  Under this maxim, if statute specifies one exception to a general rule or assumes to specify the effects of a certain provision, other exceptions or effects are excluded."
[Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 581]

3.3.     If your interpretation of the statute would result in the commission of a crime or violation of law elsewhere in the code, then you can’t possibly be interpreting the meaning correctly.

3.4.     If you aren't aware of a statute that expressly identifies the meaning of the questionable term, you must give yourself and not the government the benefit of the doubt under the Ninth and Tenth Amendment, which states that all powers not expressly granted to the government are reserved to the states and the people respectively.

"In the interpretation of statutes levying taxes it is the established rule not to extend their provisions, by implication, beyond the clear import of the language used, or to enlarge their operations so as to embrace matters not specifically pointed out. In case of doubt they are construed most strongly against the government, and in favor of the citizen."
[Gould v. Gould, 245 U.S. 151 (1917)]

4.        The Thirteenth Amendment outlawed slavery EVERYWHERE, including on federal territory.

“That it does not conflict with the Thirteenth Amendment, which abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime, is too clear for argument.  Slavery implies involuntary servitude—a state of bondage; the ownership of mankind as a chattel, or at least the control of the labor and services of one man for the benefit of another, and the absence of a legal right to the disposal of his own person, property, and services [in their entirety].  This amendment was said in the Slaughter House Cases, 16 Wall, 36, to have been intended primarily to abolish slavery, as it had been previously known in this country, and that it equally forbade Mexican peonage or the Chinese coolie trade, when they amounted to slavery or involuntary servitude and that the use of the word ‘servitude’ was intended to prohibit the use of all forms of involuntary slavery, of whatever class or name.” 
[Plessy v. Ferguson, 163 U.S. 537, 542 (1896)]

“Other authorities to the same effect might be cited.  It is not open to doubt that Congress may enforce the Thirteenth Amendment  by direct legislation, punishing the holding of a person in slavery or in involuntary servitude except as a punishment for a crime.  In the exercise of that power Congress has enacted these sections denouncing peonage, and punishing one who holds another in that condition of involuntary servitude.  This legislation is not limited to the territories or other parts of the strictly national domain, but is operative in the states and wherever the sovereignty of the United States extends.  We entertain no doubt of the validity of this legislation, or of its applicability to the case of any person holding another in a state of peonage, and this whether there be municipal ordinance or state law sanctioning such holding.  It operates directly on every citizen of the Republic, wherever his residence may be.
[Clyatt v. U.S., 197 U.S. 207 (1905)]

Consequently, the government is without authority to write law that imposes ANY kind of duty or obligation against you other than simply avoiding injuring the equal rights of others. 

"Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of [the ONLY requirement of] the law [which is to avoid hurting your neighbor and thereby love him]."
[Romans 13:9, Bible, NKJV]

“Do not strive with a man without cause, if he has done you no harm.” 
[Prov. 3:30, Bible, NKJV]

"With all [our] blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow citizens--a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities."
[Thomas Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801. ME 3:320]

If someone is trying to abuse the authority of civil law to impose a mandatory duty upon you, then the only kind of law they can be enforcing is private or contract law to which you had to expressly consent at some point.  Your reaction should always be to insist that they produce evidence of your consent IN WRITING.  This is similar to what the courts do in the case of the government, where they can’t be sued or compelled to do anything without you producing an express waiver of sovereign immunity.  They got that authority and that sovereignty from you(!), because it was delegated to them by We The People, so you must ALSO have sovereign immunity.  Your job as a vigilant American who cares about his freedom and rights is then to discover by what lawful mechanism you waived that sovereign immunity and the following document is very helpful in determining that mechanism:

Requirement for Consent, Form #05.003

5.        The purpose of all government forms is to create and enforce usually false and prejudicial presumptions about your status that will damage your Constitutional rights.

5.1.  They use terms that are deliberately not defined in order to encourage false presumptions about what they mean and to facilitate the abuse of “words of art”.
5.2.  Nothing on government forms or in government publications are trustworthy or reliable.
"IRS Publications, issued by the National Office, explain the law in plain language for taxpayers and their advisors... While a good source of general information, publications should not be cited to sustain a position."
Internal Revenue Manual, Section ((05-14-1999)]
5.3.  It is foolish to sign a government form under penalty of perjury that even the government agrees is untrustworthy.
5.4  For further details on the above scam, see:

Reasonable Belief About Income Tax Liability, Form #05.007

6.        You will always lose when you play by their rules or use their biased forms.  He who makes either the forms or the rules or officiates either always wins.

7.        If you want a form to accurately describe your status as a “nontaxpayer”, you will have to make your own or modify what they offer.  The only types of forms the government makes are for franchisees called “taxpayers”.  This is confirmed by the IRS Mission Statement contained in  IRM, which empowers the IRS to help and “service” only “taxpayers”. 

7.1.      For modified versions of IRS forms, see:

Federal Forms and Publications: Family Guardian


7.2.      For replacement forms for use by persons not engaged in government franchises or who are “nontaxpayers”, see:

SEDM Forms Page


8.        If you don’t want to play by their rules, you cannot describe yourself as ANYTHING they have jurisdiction over or anything mentioned anywhere in their deliberately void for vagueness “codes”, such as:

8.1.      “person” as defined in 26 U.S.C. 7701(a)(1), 26 U.S.C. 6671(b), and 26 U.S.C. 7343.
8.2.      “individual” as defined in 26 CFR 1.1441-1(c )(3).
8.3.      “taxpayer” as defined in 26 U.S.C. 7701(a)(14) and 1313.
8.4.      “U.S. citizen” as defined in 26 U.S.C. 1401  or  26 CFR 1.1-1(c ).
8.5.      “U.S. resident” as defined in 26 U.S.C. 7701(b)(1)(A).
8.6.      “U.S. person” as defined in 26 U.S.C. 7701(a)(30).
8.7.      Engaged in the “trade or business” franchise, which is defined in  26 U.S.C. 7701(a)(26) as “the functions of a public office”.

9.       To avoid being associated with any of the privileged statuses in the previous item, you should consistently do the following:

9.1.     Avoid filling out government forms.
9.2.     If compelled to fill out government tax forms, write on the tax form “Not Valid Without the Attached Tax Form Attachment, Form #04.201  and Affidavit of Citizenship, Domicile, and Tax Status, Form #02.001 and attach the following forms to every tax form you are compelled to fill out:
9.2.1.  Tax Form Attachment, Form #04.201
9.2.2.  Affidavit of Citizenship, Domicile, and Tax Status, Form #02.001
9.3.     Every word on the forms you fill out should be legally defined either on the form itself or in the attachment you provide.  Signing a form that uses terms that are not defined is like signing a blank check and putting undue discretion in the hands the bureaucrat or judge who receives or uses the form.  The definitions you provide for the terms on the form should specifically state that the term DOES NOT mean what is defined in any federal or state law, and that you are not declaring a status or availing your self of a benefit of any government franchise, but rather waive your right to ever receive the benefits of any franchise.  This practice:
9.3.1.  Prevents misunderstandings and arguments with the recipient of the form.
9.3.2.  Prevents litigation caused by the misunderstandings.
9.3.3.  Prevents you from being the victim of the false presumptions of those reading the form who do not know the law.  The Bible makes it a sin to presume and Christians cannot therefore condone or encourage presumptions by others, and especially those that cause a surrender of rights protected by the Constitution.
9.3.4.  Puts the recipient in the box so that they cannot make any commercial use or abuse out of the form by compelling you to engage in franchises or assume a status that would connect you to franchises.
9.4.     Whenever you fill out a government form you should remember that the government that prepared the form will always self-servingly omit the two most important options in the "status" or entity type boxes, which are:
9.4.1.  "none of the above" AND
9.4.2.  "not subject but not exempt"
By omitting the two above options, the government is indirectly compelling you to contract with and associate with them, because all franchises are contracts, and you must associate (exercise your First Amendment right to associate) with them by choosing a domicile WITHIN their jurisdiction (as a "protected person" and therefore a "customer" called a "citizen" or "resident") before they can even lawfully contract with you to begin with under the civil law.   The approach should always be to add a new box that says "Not subject but not exempt" and check it. This is further detailed in: 

Flawed Tax Arguments to Avoid, Form #08.004, Section 6.10

10.       If anyone receiving a government form tries to argue with you about what you put on the form, respond as follows:

10.1.     Indicating that the words you use to describe yourself on forms is the method by which you both contract and politically associate with the government.  The First Amendment  protects your right to both associate and to be free from compelled association.  Therefore, no one but you has the right decide or declare your status on a government form, unless of course you appoint them to practice law on your behalf or represent you, which you should NEVER do.  See:

Your Exclusive Right to Declare or Establish Your Civil Status, Form #13.008

10.2.     Arguing that anyone who wants to compel you to describe yourself on a government form in a way that you know does not accurately characterize both your status and your intentions is committing the crime of suborning perjury and criminally tampering with a witness. All government forms are signed under penalty of perjury and therefore constitute "testimony of a witness".  YOU and not them are the witness and all witnesses are protected from duress, coercion, and retaliation.  You and only you have the exclusive right to declare and establish your status under the civil law because doing so is how you exercise your Constitutionally protected rights to contract and associate.  Any violation of those two rights defeats the entire purpose of establishing the government to begin with, which is the protection of private rights by preventing them from being involuntarily converted to public rights.  See:
10.3.     Insisting that it constitutes involuntary servitude in violation of the Thirteenth Amendment  to compel you to either complete a government form or to fill it out in a certain way.  It also means PROSECUTING those who engage in such slavery privately and personally because no lawyer is eve going to bite the hand that feeds him or jeopardize the license that his government benefactors use to silence dissent.
10.4.     Emphasizing to those receiving the form that even if they are private parties, they are acting as agents of the government in either preparing or accepting or insisting on the form and that they are therefore subject to all the same constitutional constraints as the government in that capacity, including a Bivens Action for violation of rights.  For instance, those accepting tax forms are statutory "withholding agents" per 26 U.S.C. 7701(a)(16)  who are agents and officers of the government and therefore constrained by the Constitution while physically situated on land protected by the Constitution within the exclusive jurisdiction of a state of the Union.

11.       If you try to submit a form to a company that accurately describes your status, they frequently may try to interfere with the process by refusing to accept it because if they do, it might create a civil or criminal liability and generate evidence in their records of such a liability.  For instance, they may say any of the following:

11.1.     We will not accept your form if you add any boxes to the form.

11.2.     We will not accept your form if you add any attachments to the form.

11.3.     We will not accept your form if modify our form or terms on the form.

12.       If those receiving forms you fill out use any of the approaches described in the previous step, the best way to handle it is one of the following:

12.1.     Send the information you wanted to submit separately as an addendum to an original account or job application you gave them, and indicate in the attachment that it must accompany any and every form you submit in the past, present and future, and especially if requested as part of legal discovery.  Say that all forms you submit, if not accompanied by the addendum, are invalid, misleading, deceptive, and political but not legal or actionable speech without the attachment.

12.2.     Send then an amendment IMMEDIATELY AFTER the transaction is completed via certified mail using a Certificate/Proof of Service, Form #01.002 that adds everything and all attachments they refused to accept WITH the form

For both instances above, the correspondence you send should say that this amends any and all forms submitted to the company or person for the past, present, and future and must accompany all such forms in the context of any and all legal discovery relating to you and directed at the recipient.  Say that if they don’t include it, they are criminally obstructing justice and tampering with a protected witness of criminal activity.  Don’t EVER allow them to have anything in their possession that isn’t associated with explanatory and exculpatory information that reflects your true status or which creates a prima facie presumption that you are voluntarily associated with any statutory status within any franchise agreement.  Otherwise, they are going to use this as evidence in litigation and exclude everything else, leaving you with no method to deny the the status you claimed or what you meant in claiming it.  The mandatory Legal Notice of Change in Domicile/Citizenship Records and Divorce from the United States, Form #10.001also helps as a defense against such tactics, because it too is required to be associated with everything the government receives about you or else the information is not valid, untrustworthy, deceptive, and misleading.

13.       We have produced forms you can submit for the occasion described in the previous step whereby a properly executed government form is rejected and the witness filling it out is criminally tampered with in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1512.  Submit the following forms AFTER THE FACT to remove the risks created by the witness tampering and prevent fraud charges against you:

13.1.     Resignation of Compelled Social Security Trustee, Form #06.002-updates an existing SSA Form SS-5 to correct the status of the applicant.

13.2.     Passport Amendment Request, Form #06.016 -amends a previous USA passport application to remove false presumptions about your citizenship status and domicile

13.3.     Legal Notice to Correct Fraudulent Tax Status, Reporting, and Withholding, Form #04.401 -send this form to any company you have financial dealings with that threatened to either fire, not hire, or not do business with you because of the tax withholding paperwork you gave them.  Send it AFTER the transaction or hiring is completed to correct their records.

13.4.     Employer Identification Number (EIN) Application Permanent Amendment Notice, Form #06.022 -updates an EIN application to disconnect you permanently from all franchises.

13.5.     Notice and Demand to Correct False IRS Form 1099-S, Form #04.403 -send this form to an itinerant Escrow company that REFUSES to accept correct tax withholding paperwork on a real estate transaction and threatens to hold up the sale if you don’t fill out the tax paperwork in a way that you KNOW is FRAUDULENT.  Send AFTER the escrow transaction is completed  so that you don’t have to hold up the sale.

13.6.     Retirement Account Application Permanent Amendment Notice, Form #04.217-Changes the character of a retirement account to a PRIVATE, non-taxable account

14.1.     Application for most forms of government ID makes you a privileged “resident” domiciled on federal territory and divorces you from the protections of the Constitution.  The “United States” they are referring to below is NOT that mentioned in the Constitution, but the statutory “United States” consisting of federal territory that is no part of any de jure state of the Union.

State of Virginia
Title 46.2 - MOTOR VEHICLES.
Chapter 3 - Licensure of Drivers

46.2-328.1. Licenses, permits and special identification cards to be issued only to United States citizens, legal permanent resident aliens, or holders of valid unexpired nonimmigrant visas; exceptions; renewal, duplication, or reissuance.

A. Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, except as provided in subsection G of 46.2-345, the Department shall not issue an original license, permit, or special identification card to any applicant who has not presented to the Department, with the application, valid documentary evidence that the applicant is either (i) a citizen of the United States, (ii) a legal permanent resident of the United States, or (iii) a conditional resident alien of the United States.

14.2.     Most states cannot and will not issue driver’s licenses to those who are nonresidents of the statutory but not Constitutional “United States”, which consists only of federal territory that is no part of any state of the Union.  If you give them an affidavit of nonresidency, in fact, they will tell that you aren’t eligible for a license and issue you a certificate of disqualification saying that they refused to issue you a license.  Now wouldn’t THAT be something useful to have the next time a cop stops you and tries to cite you for not having that which the government REFUSED to issue you, which is a LICENSE!
14.3.     When or if you procure government ID of any kind, including driver’s licenses, you should always do so as a NON-RESIDENT, a “transient foreigner”, and neither a statutory “citizen” or statutory “resident”.  The place you are a “citizen” or “resident” of for all government ID applications is federal territory and not the de jure republic.  Government ID is a privilege, not a right.
14.4.     The only type of government ID you can procure without a domicile on federal territory and without being a statutory “citizen” or statutory “resident” are:
14.4.1.  A USA passport.  See:

How to Apply for a Passport as a “national”, Form #09.007

14.4.2.  ID issued by your own government or group.
14.4.3.  ID issued by a notary public, who is a public officer and therefore not part of the government.
14.5.     For details on the dangers of government ID, see:

Why Domicile and Becoming a “Taxpayer” Require Your Consent, Form #05.002, Section 12 through 12.5

15.        There are only TWO ways that they can enforce their rules against you.  All of these rules are documented in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 17(b):

15.1.      If you have a domicile on their territory.
15.2.      If you are acting in a representative capacity as a “public officer” of the United States federal corporation described in 28 U.S.C. 3002(15)(A).  This includes participation in any government franchise because all such franchises inevitably turn you into government agents and officers.  See:

Government Instituted Slavery Using Franchises, Form #05.030

Another way of stating the above two rules is that whenever a sovereign wants to reach outside its physical territory, it may only do so using its right to contract with other fellow sovereign states and people.  If you aren’t domiciled on their territory, they have to produce evidence that you consented to some kind of contract or agreement with them.  This is consistent with the maxim of law that debt and contract know no place:

Debitum et contractus non sunt nullius loci.
Debt and contract [franchise agreement, in this case] are of no particular place.

Locus contractus regit actum.
The place of the contract [franchise agreement, in this case] governs the act.
[Bouvier’s Maxims of Law, 1856;

16.        If you don’t want them enforcing their rules against you, you can’t act like someone they have jurisdiction over either by:

16.1.      Describing yourself as a “person”, franchisee (e.g. “taxpayer”), or entity referenced in their private law franchise agreement.

16.2.      Invoking the benefits or protections of any portion of the franchise agreement.  For instance, the following remedy is ONLY available to franchisees called “taxpayers” and may not be invoked by “nontaxpayers”:

TITLE 26 > Subtitle F > CHAPTER 76 > Subchapter B > 7433
7433. Civil damages for certain unauthorized collection actions

(a) In general

If, in connection with any collection of Federal tax with respect to a taxpayer, any officer or employee of the Internal Revenue Service recklessly or intentionally, or by reason of negligence, disregards any provision of this title, or any regulation promulgated under this title, such taxpayer may bring a civil action for damages against the United States in a district court of the United States. Except as provided in section 7432,, such civil action shall be the exclusive remedy for recovering damages resulting from such actions.

16.3.   Filling out their forms that are only for use by franchisees called “taxpayers”.  The IRS mission statement at IRM  says they can ONLY help or assist “taxpayers” and the minute you ask for their help, you are implicitly admitting you are a franchisee called a “taxpayer” engaged in the “trade or business” franchise.  Do you see “nontaxpayers” or persons who are sovereign and not privileged in their mission statement:

IRM (02-26-1999)
IRS Mission and Basic Organization

The IRS Mission: Provide America’s taxpayers top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities and by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all.

16.4.      Asking for licenses such as a Taxpayer Identification Number or Social Security Number on Forms W-7, W-9, or SS-4  respectively.  The only people who need such “licenses” are those receiving some kind of government benefit.  All such benefits are listed in the IRS Form 1042-S Instructions, where they identify the criteria for when you MUST provide a “Taxpayer Identification Number”:

Box 14, Recipient’s U.S. Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)

You must obtain a U.S. taxpayer identification number (TIN) for:

   Any recipient whose income is effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States.

Note.  For these recipients, exemption code 01 should be entered in box 6.

   Any foreign person claiming a reduced rate of, or exemption from, tax under a tax treaty between a foreign country and the United States, unless the income is an unexpected payment (as described in Regulations section 1.1441-6(g)) or consists of dividends and interest from stocks and debt obligations that are actively traded; dividends from any redeemable security issued by an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (mutual fund); dividends, interest, or royalties from units of beneficial interest in a unit investment trust that are (or were, upon issuance) publicly offered and are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act of 1933; and amounts paid with respect to loans of any of the above securities.

   Any nonresident alien individual claiming exemption from tax under section 871(f) for certain annuities received under qualified plans.

   A foreign organization claiming an exemption from tax solely because of its status as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c ) or as a private foundation.

   Any QI.

   Any WP or WT.

   Any nonresident alien individual claiming exemption from withholding on compensation for independent personal services [services connected with a “trade or business”].

   Any foreign grantor trust with five or fewer grantors.

   Any branch of a foreign bank or foreign insurance company that is treated as a U.S. person.

If a foreign person provides a TIN on a Form W-8, but is not required to do so, the withholding agent must include the TIN on Form 1042-S.
[IRS Form 1042s Instructions, Year 2006, p. 14]

16.5.     Using government license numbers on government forms such as the EIN, TIN, or SSN.

16.6.      Failing to rebut the use of government issued identifying numbers against you by others.  See:

About SSNs and TINs on Government Forms and Correspondence, Form #05.012

16.7.      Submitting the WRONG withholding paperwork with your private employer, bank or financial institution.  The correct paperwork is the an AMENDED version of the IRS Form W-8BEN.  Everything else will unwittingly make you into a “U.S. person”, a “resident alien”, a “person”, and an “individual” in the context of the IRS:

About IRS Form W-8BEN, Form #04.202

16.8.      Failing to rebut false Information Returns such as IRS Forms W-2, 1042-s, 1098, and 1099  filed against you by ignorant people who aren’t reading or properly obeying the law.  All such documents connect you with the “trade or business” franchise and make you into a person in receipt of federal “privilege” and therefore subject to federal jurisdiction.  See:

Correcting Erroneous Information Returns, Form #04.001

16.9.      Petitioning a “franchise court” called “United States Tax Court” that is ONLY for franchisees called “taxpayers”.  Tax Court Rule 13(a)  says that the court is ONLY available to “taxpayers”.  You can’t petition this administrative tribunal without indirectly admitting you are a “taxpayer”.  See:

The Tax Court Scam, Form #05.039

Although Crowell and Raddatz do not explicitly distinguish between rights created by Congress and other rights, such a distinction underlies in part Crowell's and Raddatz' recognition of a critical difference between rights created by federal statute and rights recognized by the Constitution.    Moreover, such a distinction seems to us to be necessary in light of the delicate accommodations required by the principle of separation of powers reflected in Art. III. The constitutional system of checks and balances is designed to guard against “encroachment or aggrandizement” by Congress at the expense of the other branches of government. Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S., at 122, 96 S.Ct., at 683.  But when Congress creates a statutory right [a “privilege” in this case, such as a “trade or business”], it clearly has the discretion, in defining that right, to create presumptions, or assign burdens of proof, or prescribe remedies; it may also provide that persons seeking to vindicate that right must do so before particularized tribunals created to perform the specialized adjudicative tasks related to that right.FN35 Such provisions do, in a sense, affect the exercise of judicial power, but they are also incidental to Congress' power to define the right that it has created. No comparable justification exists, however, when the right being adjudicated is not of congressional creation. In such a situation, substantial inroads into functions that have traditionally been performed by the Judiciary cannot be characterized merely as incidental extensions of Congress' power to define rights that it has created. Rather, such inroads suggest unwarranted encroachments upon the judicial power of the United States, which our Constitution reserves for Art. III courts.
[Northern Pipeline Const. Co. v. Marathon Pipe Line Co., 458 U.S. at 83-84, 102 S.Ct. 2858 (1983)]

Because a number of people don’t understand the above subtleties, they discredit themselves by claiming to be a “nontaxpayer” not subject to the I.R.C. and yet ACTING like a “taxpayer”.  The IRS and the courts fine and sanction such ignorant and presumptuous conduct.

17.        Franchises are the main method for destroying your sovereignty.  Unless and until you understand exactly how they work and how they are used to trap and enslave the ignorant and those who don’t consent, you will never be free.  Government “benefits” are the “bribe” that judges and tyrants use to entice you to participate in government franchises and thereby surrender your sovereign immunity and contract away your rights.  Government franchises are exhaustively explained below:

Government Instituted Slavery Using Franchises, Form #05.030

18.     You can’t accept a financial “benefit” or payments of any kind from the government without becoming part of the government.  In that sense, there are always “strings” attached to money you get from the government, many of which are completely invisible to most people.  The only thing the government can lawfully pay public monies to are public officers and agents.  Those who engage in such benefits must have a government license (a TIN or SSN) and thereby become a government officer or agent.

"A tax, in the general understanding of the term and as used in the constitution, signifies an exaction for the support of the government. The word has never thought to connote the expropriation of money from one group for the benefit of another."
[U.S. v. Butler, 297 U.S. 1 (1936))]

19.     All government “benefits” or payment don’t constitute “consideration” that can lawfully make the subject of any enforceable contract or franchise in the case of most Americans.  The reason is because the government doesn’t have any enforceable obligation at all to those who sign up for it.  All the remedies they give you are in administrative “franchise courts” that are not true constitutional courts.  You will always lose in these tribunals.  You ought to avoid begging for anything from the government because you will be tricked into becoming their slave and whore.  See:

The Government “Benefits” Scam, Form #05.040

20.     The only group of people the government can write law for are its own agents, officers, and employees for the most part.  See:

Why Statutory Civil Law is Law for Government and Not Private Persons, Form #05.037

21.     You will never be free as long as you are conducting commerce with the government and thereby subject to their jurisdiction.  All such commerce implies a waiver of sovereign immunity pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1605  and inevitably makes you into a slave and a serf of tyrants.  Black’s Law Dictionary defines “commerce” as “intercourse”.  This is the same “intercourse” that Babylon the Great Harlot is having with the Beast, which the Bible defines as the kings and political rulers of the earth in Rev. 19:19.

Commerce. …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]

“Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot [Babylon the Great Harlot] who sits on many waters,  with whom the kings of the earth [politicians and rulers] committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk [indulged] with the wine of her fornication.” 
[Rev. 17:1-2, Bible, NKJV]

“And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.” 
[Rev. 19:19, Bible, NKJV]

On the subject of not associating with a corrupted government, the bible says the following:

"Come out from among them [the unbelievers and government idolaters]
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean [the government or anything made by man],
And I will receive you.
I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be my sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty."
2 Corinthians 6:17-18, Bible, NKJV]

"And have no fellowship [or association] with the unfruitful works of [government] darkness, but rather reprove [rebuke and expose] them." 
[Eph. 5:11, Bible, NKJV]

“But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law [man's law].” 
[Gal. 5:18, Bible, NKJV]

Shall the throne of iniquity [the U.S. Congress and the federal judiciary], which devises evil by [obfuscating the] law [to expand their jurisdiction and consolidate all economic power in their hands by taking it away from the states], have fellowship with You?  They gather together against the life of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood [of "nontaxpayers" and persons outside their jurisdiction, which is an act of extortion and racketeering].  But the Lord has been my defense, and my God the rock of my refuge.  He has brought on them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; the Lord our God [and those who obey Him and His word] shall cut them off [from power and from receiving illegal bribes cleverly disguised by an obfuscated law as legitimate "taxes"].” 
[Psalms 94:20-23, Bible, NKJV. 
QUESTION FOR DOUBTERS:  Who else BUT Congress and the judiciary can devise "evil by law"?]

"Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: 'The Lord knows those who are His,' and, 'Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from [not associate with] wickedness [wherever it is found, and especially in government].' " 
[2 Tim. 2:19 , Bible, NKJV]

"It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, that you may distinguish between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean, and that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes [laws] which the LORD [God] has spoken to them by the hand of Moses." 
[Lev. 10:9-11, Bible, NKJV]
