: Beware of the following when reading citations:
: You are probably not a man or a woman in the law. You are almost certainly a person, a legal entity just like a corporation. If you are registered to vote, have a Social Security Number, or qualify in any way other way to be a resident of your State, you are a juristic personality in the law and a citizen of the United States, a term which has changed meaning over the years.
: Previous to the 14th Amendment, citizen of the United States and citizen of the United States of America were used interchangeably. After the 14th Amendment, citizens of the United States of America became an endangered species and have now all but disappeared. A citizen of the United States of America had citizenship first as a state citizen and then by reason of the Constitution had citizen rights in all other states. A citizen of the United States, post 14th Amendment, is a federal citizen who has expatriated from state citizenship into federal citizenship and changed legal status from common law man or woman to statute law person.
: All these old right to travel citiations were written for state common law citizens, not federal citizens.
And we still have access to them if we stay out of 'prcedence' (international law) and into 'stare decisis' (Standing Decisions under the rule of the Comon Law).
What the respondent Jay failed to mention (no faulting Jay or his response) is the covenature nature of a Driver's License under international law. We've posted on this before, but don't remember just where, so here goes again:
An agreement may be unilateral, such as, "I agree to give $100 to my church in the next year." That is 100% enforceable by law, but requires only one signature.
A contract is made between two or more parties, all of whom are fully aware of the terms and conditions, and all of whom have signed the contract indenture. It requires the express consent of all parties to modify or amend the contract.
A covenant may extend beyond the signatories. A Driver's License is a fine example of such covenant. The seal of the State affixed to the license carries the covenant to all States that are party to any License compact, the United States, and even the United Nations (interstate and international commerce). This is a nasty gotcha, because your signature of agreement to the terms and conditions places you under the law of all covenants that are tied to the seal of the issueing State.
Suggestion: If you have a license (for use in commerce), make it known that the use of the conveyance at the time you got pulled over is not under the terms of the license. Carry a declaration document with you to that effect, and when the cop issues the citation, insist the declaration be filed with the citation which, of course, you signed under duress or without prejudice. If the cop refuses to file the declaration with the citation, he has just obstructed justice and tampered with (destroyed or similar) evidence. Have a copy of the declaration and ask the cop to sign it as a true copy having been received to be filed with the citation. That, then, becomes your evidence that he (the cop) received the declaration. This is only a part of what you need to know and do, but it is a very large part. The first part of any case is to "Make the Record." NEVER argue with idiots! The beat cop has about 3-1/2 months of academy training under his belt, not four plus years of law school, and the books these academy cadets read label you as a "violator" up to 34 times on one page. The street is no place to try to adjudicate your rights or to argue your case. Remember, anything you SAY or DO CAN and WILL be used against you.
