FROM SOVEREIGN TO SERF Government by the Treachery and Deception of Words

The thesis of this book, FROM SOVEREIGN TO SERF by Roger S. Sayles, is that the original intent of the Founders of this Nation was to join the separate States together by a national government of limited and enumerated powers, the People of the several States remaining sovereign in all other matters not specifically delegated to the national government. The Citizens of the several States were deemed to be Citizens of the United States via their citizenship in one of the States.

This state of affairs remained constant until after the War between the States, aka, the Civil War, or, in Roger s Southern vernacular, the War of Northern Aggression, left those of the African-American race without any protection from the state or federal governments, because the U.S. Supreme Court, in Dred Scott v. Sandford (1856), had held that individuals of that race were not, and could not be, citizens of the United States under the U.S. Constitution. To remedy this unfortunate situation, Congress enacted the Civil Rights Act of 1866, granting citizenship to the recently freed African-Americans. To ensure that act of citizenship was not overturned by any succeeding Congress, the Republican-led Congress proposed the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, wherein the first sentence read: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. The first case wherein the Supreme Court addressed the meaning of that Amendment was the Slaughter-House Cases (1873). A number of butchers had complained that the State of Louisiana had violated their federal “privileges and immunities” by passing an ordinance that placed restrictions on the slaughtering of animals in New Orleans. They sought the protection of the federal government against the violation of their right to practice their livelihood as they had previously done so. The Supreme Court held that, while the Constitution certainly protected individuals against violation of the “privileges and immunities” protected by the Constitution, it did not protect them against the violations of the “privileges and immunities” incident to their state citizenship. In its ruling, the Court, speaking through Justice Gray, stated: It is quite clear then, that there is a citizenship of the United States and a citizenship of a state, which are distinct from each other and which depend upon different characteristics or circumstances in the individual. . . .

It is the thesis of Roger’s book From Sovereign to Surf that the 14th Amendment conferred upon the African-Americans a second-class citizenship comparable to the status of subjects in England under the feudal law. Perhaps Chief Justice Fuller best explained the citizenship rule that now prevails with the federal government, in his dissent 25 years later, in Wong Kim Ark v. United States (1898), wherein he stated: The rule was the outcome of the connection in feudalism between the individual and the soil on which he lived, and the allegiance due was that of liegemen to their liege lord.

Roger maintains, with powerful authorities cited in support, that the federal government, previously limited to the specific, enumerated powers set forth in the original Constitution, was now free, under the 14th Amendment, to pass whatever laws and regulations it deemed fit for the governance of its new citizen-serfs. However, not content with the reach of its new powers to come out from under the restrictions and limitations of the original Constitution, through the treachery and deception of words, the federal government has now seen fit to call all Americans citizen-serfs under the 14th Amendment and recognizes as citizen-sovereigns under the original Constitution only those who assert their sovereignty under the passport application as U.S. Nationals.

Here is and illustration from the bookFROM SOVEREIGN TO SERF where Roger makes his point: Consider this: in England, there are only two classes of persons – subjects and a sovereign; England has no citizens, as we use that term in the United States.

Now, Queen Elizabeth is certainly not a subject; she is the sovereign. Is she also a national of the nation of England? At, we find the definition of national, when used as a noun: “a citizen or subject of a particular nation who is entitled to its protection.” Do you think that the Queen is entitled to the protection of England? The answer is obvious. Do you think she is a subject of England? Hardly Quite obviously, she is entitled to England 's protection, she is not a subject, and, because England has no citizens, as we use that term, she must be the sovereign-national of England. Just as the Queen is the sovereign-national of England, so also, free Americans are the sovereign-nationals of the United States. See Chisholm v. Georgia, 2 U.S. 419, 471-72 (1793) (“at the Revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people; and they are truly the sovereigns of the country, but they are sovereigns without subjects (unless the African slaves among us may be so called) and have none to govern but themselves; the citizens of America are equal as fellow citizens, and as joint tenants in the sovereignty”).

Author  Roger Sayles first became aware of the duplicity, treachery and deception of words used by the federal government in a class on taxes he attended in 1992, taught by John Benson and Glenn Ambort, both of whom have spent a combined 14 years in federal prison solely for teaching their understanding of the history of our tax laws and sovereignty. Roger maintains that they are among today’s many “political prisoners.

Based upon what he learned in that class, he filed an “affidavit” of his understanding of his sovereign citizenship in the county records of his home state of Florida. (He has since emigrated to Argentina.) He has used that affidavit on six different occasions, including his obtaining a Florida picture identification, his social security retirement benefits, and his official U.S. Passport, three separate times, all while claiming what he believes to be his rightful, sovereign status as a U.S. National. Never once has his affidavit of citizenship been questioned, refused or rebutted. The purpose of his book is to inform his readers what steps he took, the reasoning behind those steps, and a path that others may follow, if they wish to follow in his footsteps. The book, From Sovereign to Serf, Government by the Treachery and Deception of Words, is now available at for $24.95.

Ron: A core matrix illusion that must be shattered asap is the idea that the welfare state looks after people. It doesn't. It "manages" and "milks" them. It is vital that those staying and/or being left behind on Urantia after stasis quickly understand that FREEDOM means responsibility - taking responsibility for care of oneself and one's neighbour rather than relying on some external government or other entity to do it. This is the core idea of Deek Jackson's Landless Peasant party and its necessary concomitant is permanent access to, and sovereign stewardship of land.

Ron: Our world is a global slave plantation on which we are free range serfs being farmed as livestock. To cease being farmed livestock we must acknowledge our individual sovereignty as fragments of the Creator and accept responsibility for governance of our own lives and the affairs of our community. ALL of the responsibilities of living need to be undertaken at local community level so that there is NO opportunity for the proponents of "Welfarism" and Big Government to insinuate their way into our future governance structures.

‘There are international treaties that are reinsurance treaties. Insurance Companies come in and act as sureties for the bid bonds. The performance, bid, and payment bonds are all surety bonds. All bid bonds must have a surety. The surety is guaranteeing the reinsuring of the bid bond by issuing the performance bond. They get an underwriter (investment broker or banker) to underwrite the performance bond which reinsures the bid bond. The underwriter takes the payment, performance and bid bonds and pools them into 'mortgage backed securities' which are called bonds and sold to TBA, The Bond Market Association, an actual corporation. After the payment bond is issued to reinsure or underwrite the performance bond, which reinsures the bid bond, the banks convert the bonds to investment securities. The banks and brokerage houses are selling these as investment securities. The prisoners are funding the whole enchilada. Because you go into default judgment (DISHONOR) when you went into the court room.’

A quote, famously attributed to Rothschild agent Col. Edward House, but rarely understood except by "one man in a million" envisages people as collateral on the national debt:

house.jpg(Col. House,left, puppeteer of Presidents)

"[Very] soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a National system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging.

By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a chargeback for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer not being able to work and earn a living.

They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges.

They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two would figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability.

After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor or to this fraud which we will call "Social Insurance."
