[quote:Anonymous Coward 17551129:MV8yMTM3ODI1XzM2MTYzNjM5X0QwRDJDOTA4] [quote:Anonymous Coward 34504191:MV8yMTM3ODI1XzM2MTYzNTUxXzhBMTU1OEU1] [i][color=darkblue]The sovereign citizen movement is NOT about anarchy... It is you and media types that paint it in that light...[/color][/i] I'm a 'media type', now? But I thought your ilk just called me a member of the illuminati. Or an employee of the IRS. Or was it the 'Southern Poverty Law Center'. Wait...wasn't I supposed to be a communist, right? Or was that a domestic terrorist? A socialist? An elite? A jew? I apologize for the confusion...but the litany of silly labels your ilk tries to saddle me with all starts to run together after a while. [i][color=darkblue] The movement is about not being plowed under by a system that is inherrantly inflationary...[/color][/i] Really? Because the guy who was just here insisted it was about him being a king, and no law existed nor did any law applying to him. Which sounds *exactly* like anarchy. So me, the 'media types' and whoever that poor bastard was then, right? [/quote] The confusion exists, because it is impossible to get straight answers... [/quote]
I really don't know much about this subject. Is this a genuine description of these people of just the M.S.M. demonizing them?
From Kfor TV out of Oklahoma:
"Law enforcement is paying special attention to a re-surging group of individual extremists; sovereign citizens.
They are anti-government Americans who believe the U.S. government has no authority".
"The world-wide web has been a handy tool in sovereign circles, spreading tactics of their particular flavor of lawlessness.
Sovereign citizens usually represent themselves in court, filing nonsensical paperwork on their own behalf.
Many sovereigns document their struggles to be taken seriously, then post them online.
They rarely have much success."
“What I understand people in some of these cases are doing is making the argument that the original constitutional order left people free from the authority of the federal government and maybe from laws at the state level as well,” Blitz said. “So (they say) ‘You can’t apply these laws to me.’ Not surprisingly, the judges have said, ‘Yes we can.’”
