You Are Not A Legal American!
August 24, 2012 9 Comments
If you ask American citizens what it is that makes them an American, they may not know how to answer. They may incorrectly answer that it’s because they were born in America, but that would be wrong, -unless they were born to U.S. immigrants. In that case they would be correct because the 14th Amendment declares them to be American citizens.
But if your parents were not immigrants, then what is the source of your American citizenship? By what law, or constitutional amendment, or clause in the Constitution, or Attorney General Interpretation, or State Department policy are you an American?
No one will be able to answer you even if they are a lawyer, or a judge, or a professor of law. The reason they will have no answer is because there is no answer. They may not even realize that fact consciously.
But they will be aware that they’ve never heard of any such law. So if you are not an immigrant, nor born to a foreign father or mother, but are simply an average American, born to American parents, then there is no law that you can point to that makes you an American citizen.
There’s a pronouncement in the 14th Amendment which declares that any person who fits the criteria of being native-born and subject to U.S. jurisdiction is a U.S. citizen, but its declaration only applies to one group so described but not the other. One group is those born in America to foreigners, while the other is those born in America to Americans. The former obtain citizenship via the permission of the amendment but the latter do not. Rather, they are born with it, -with or without the amendment. They are not dependent on it nor any other grant or permission, and in fact none even exists.
The reason there’s no such law is because no authority was given by the founding fathers to pass any law impacting, regulating, or bestowing the citizenship of natural natives of the United States.
They gave authority to Congress to pass a “uniform law of naturalization” dealing with foreigners and their children, but not to pass laws regarding natural citizens of the United States.
Just as the First Amendment specifically forbids Congress from passing any law respecting an establishment of religion or anything that infringes on religion and the press, so Congress was similarly unauthorized to legislate or regulate the citizenship of the American people who are the nation’s natural members. Since that authority was not given in the Constitution, nor in the 14th Amendment, it does not exist.
That leaves the matter of natural citizenship as something that only exists in the realm of natural law, -outside of government, beyond the right of men to legislate, beneath the foundation on which the government is built. It exists as an immutable principle derived from natural law and the unalienable rights bestowed by Nature’s God to his creation.
So while foreigners who are naturalized, and children born to immigrants can point to specific statements in U.S. law, whether it be the naturalizing power of the 14th Amendment, or Supreme Court rulings, or federal statutes, natural citizens can point to nothing in any law ever passed.
While government and its laws exist as the result of the agreement of a people to establish a civil order and structure to enforce the rules that will provide them a framework in which tranquility and prosperity will be possible thanks to the protection of the natural rights of every individual, that government does not exist as a natural construct but instead, as a man-made one.
Since natural membership is a natural right and is not granted by a man-made construct of human authority, it exists with or without that construct, and thus those who created the construct for Americans were conscious of that fact when they created it, -realizing that they could not codify that which is beyond human authority because that would create the false impression that it’s something within the purview of human authority, when in fact, it, -like natural family membership, is beyond human authority to regulate or alter.
Instead, it is those who with natural membership in a group who possess the authority to regulate and alter their government. Any form of government that violates the natural order of things is a dictatorship and sits as a little Satan ruling over other human beings as if they are its property.
The American citizens who can trace their citizenship to something that is the product of government exercising its authority can be described as “legal” citizens. Anyone who is a natural citizen is not among them because their citizenship is not derived from government, and so they could be described as not being “legal” citizens but natural citizens It was their civic forefathers that created the system that determines what is legal and what is not, -who is legal and who is not, -who obtains permission to be a U.S. citizen and who does not.
No one can be a determiner of the legality of natural national members because such members were the creators of the system that does the determining. The creation cannot determine the legitimacy or illegitimacy of its creator within the creator’s own system.
So most Americans, perhaps 96 %+ of us, can say that in that sense, we are not “legal” citizens since no legal authority exists that makes us what we already are and were born as, namely, what the Constitution calls “natural born citizens”.
By simply being what we are, we are qualified to run for the office of President (if we’re 35 years of age and have lived in the United States for 14 years), but the +/- 3-4 % of us who aren’t natural Americans are not eligible to be President. That’s due to the immutable requirement of the U.S. Constitution, but no one pays any attention to it anymore. In fact it was ignored completely when the American electorate voted for an ineligible citizen by the name of Barack (Bair’-ak) Obama and then in rapture watched him be unconstitutionally sworn into office. Oh well, the Constitution is only a piece of paper. And it’s no longer the law of the land anyway. That is now whatever Congress decides, or whatever the autocrat in the oval office decides. That’s the new normal. I hope you can adjust to it, along with the straitjacket that’s being prepared for you.
