"But they've been violating the black letter law of the Constitution for over 150 years. The federal government in its current state is entirely unlawful and has no lawful or legal authority, beyond force."
This is the part of the 'sovereign citizen' movement I never understood. They literally just make bizarro nonsense 'legal' principles up whole...citing only themselves. That the federa government invents a 'paper' version that has nothing to do with you. Yet when pressed to back this bullshyte up with *actual law*, they have none. Its just them, making up their story as they go along.
The law simply doesn't say what they claim it does. The imaginary 'requirements' that they claim must be met don't actually exist. The court has to 'trick' you into acknowledging its authority before it can rule over you? Um, nope. There is no such requirement. Jurisdiction is established geographically. And there are no 'paper' people. The imaginary requirement simply doesn't exist.
And when they actually try and quote law, 99 times out of 100, they don't have the slightest clue what they're talking about.
Take the 'Organic Act of 1871' that supposedly reduced the nation and all of its people to corporations. The law is also known as the 'Act to Provide a Government for the District of Columbia'. It was a municipal consolidation of two cities: Georgetown and Washington into one municipality. That's it. Here it is in its entirety:

All the inane babble about it being the 'End of America' is just made up nonsense from someone who has never read the Act and doesn't have the slightest clue what it actually says.
For those of you serious about learning what's 'actually' happening, I'd suggest two things. *Always* ask 'according to who?' when you hear about some super secret loophole that sounds too good to be true. And then demand evidence to back it up. Not just the name of a particular act, but the *actual* text, the *actual* court rulings.
You'll find almost invariably, the person sharing the 'miraculous loophole' is just apeing what they've been told to think....and can't back it up.
