Freeman On The Land Success Story! Has Any FOTL Been Successful In Court?
What is a Freeman On The Land?
There is a buzz around the internet concerning the Freeman On The Land Movement. Many claims have been made concerning the effectiveness of the FOTL arguments. Many Freemen have appeared in a Court attempting to use the FOTL theories unsuccessfully.
Many have found themselves incarcerated at the worst and losing property or their wealth at the best. Others have attempted to resort to violence to impose their status on society. This will end up with the offender possibly having their life terminated.
Has any Freemen been successful in their endeavors? Is there proof of Freeman on the Land success stories?
Yes, and I will document this success here!
Do not become entrenched in the legal system!
The reason that Freemen are punished in a Court is simple, you cannot enter a courtroom and fail to abide by their rules. The Court Officers have a monopoly on the use of force, so you either play by their rules or you are punished.
So If this is admitted how can one claim success using Freemen theories. Easy, the most effective way to avoid failure in a courtroom is to not participate in actions that would result in you appearing in a courtroom.
By not running afoul of the law is the easiest path to success. Avoiding encounters with law enforcement is the simplest way to retain your status. A Freeman (FOTL), will be much better off avoiding any situations in which they would be obligated to appear in a court proceeding. A little common sense, respect for the complacent sheep that make up society, and living a private life, will ensure the individual will retain their freedom.
Free Man on the Land Q&A ~ The Basics of Living as a Free Human
Do not operate a motor vehicle.
Many Freemen run in to problems with the operation of a motorized vehicle. The requirement of a driver's license to engage in the legal act of operating a motor vehicle, though absurd, if you are caught driving a vehicle without a license, you will be punished.
How do you avoid the punishment for driving without a license? Do not drive! To claim that you are operating outside of a Police Officers jurisdiction will result in a fine, every time. It is an act of lawful rebellion to abstain from operating a motor vehicle. While you lose the privilege of driving, the State also loses the revenue associated with operating a registered motor vehicle.
Federal Reserve notes are worthless.
Do not accept payment in Federal Reserve notes!
Another issue where Freemen run in to difficulties is in the payment of taxes. By refusing payment in Federal Reserve notes, the tax obligation becomes non-existent. Through living a minimalist lifestyle, the need for an amount of income which will result in a tax burden is not necessary. It is not easy to refrain from indulging in the excesses of life, but if you can do it, your obligation to the IRS will not be relevant.
It is not hard to find individuals willing to trade items of value, rather than worthless Federal Reserve notes. If you assist a neighbor with their household chores for a nice dinner and a couple of adult beverages, how can the government claim a right to a portion of your meal?
Meet Your Strawman!
Accept your Strawman!
We all know that when you see YOUR NAME spelled in capital letters, this is not your living, breathing, human entity. It is a legal fiction that would fall under the category of a corporation, not a human being. Unfortunately, government will not acknowledge this fact!
You will run in to difficulties if you attempt to separate yourself from your strawman. At this point in time, your strawman will be forced upon you. Until the time that a Freeman can get the proper standing to have their case heard by the Supreme Court. Acknowledge your responsibility to the actions of your strawman, but make it known that the name in capital letters is nothing more than a government created DBA (Doing Business As). Treat your strawman as if it is a business that you own!
The recent Supreme Court decision (Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission), decided that corporations are people. Using this logic it is safe to say that if corporations are persons, persons are corporations. The United States of America should pass an Amendment to the Constitution providing an accurate definition of a person. Either a person is a corporate entity or it represents a human being, to just allow the Court system to place corporations and human beings in the same category is erroneous and confusing, Yet it seems that the American Justice system has little regard to allow average citizens to hold the ability to understand legalese. It is much easier to manipulate an individual who cannot be forgiven for not possessing complete knowledge of the law. By maintaining a system that keeps its citizens confused, it preserves its dominance of humanity! It may take awhile for the law to catch up with current events, in time it will!
You are responsible for legal contracts!
You cannot receive money from the Treasury department!
There may very well be a bond issued against your strawman which was created by government. This does not mean that the individual can access this bond for their own use. To attempt to file documents with the government in the hopes that you will receive money for nothing is ludicrous.
You will fail, and you may be found guilty of several levels of fraud, including mail fraud. If this is the system you use to file the documents. There are many individuals seeking payment to inform you of the proper way to withdraw money from this bond, they are liars! If someone is attempting to charge you for this information, you are about to be scammed!
English Legal Vocabulary - Contract Law
Pay your bills!
If you enter in to a financial agreement which places an obligation on you to pay a bill, pay it! Act with honor. If you agree, and endorse a contract, you are obligated to make the appropriate payments. There is no magical trick to avoid your responsibilities. If you do not want to make payments, do not create the obligation.
The same goes for turning a bill in to a check, the theory of Accepting for Value does not work. Again, this sort of activity will bring you in to the legal system, where the Freeman always fails. The legal system of the United States operates on Admiralty Law. Can you get a Court Officer to acknowledge this? No, questions of jurisdiction could result in a contempt charge being brought against you. If you play the legal system game, you must abide by their rules.
Civilized human beings do not resort to violence.
Violence solves nothing!
This is a simple concept. Engaging in violent activity will never solve a problem. This is especially true when dealing with agents of law enforcement. If you are forced in to a confrontation with law enforcement, remain civil and respectful. Remember the agents do not produce the law, they are only in a position to enforce it.
Law enforcement agents are human beings. They deserve the basic respect every individual deserves. You will never win a violent conflict with law enforcement. To believe you can, is just preposterous. If you are being detained, submit. Anything else will only result in harsher punishments. It may also end up with you being fatally injured.
The Freeman and Strawman Explained
Back to the success!
I have been living the Freeman on the Land lifestyle successfully for five years. I do not operate motor vehicles. I do not enter in to financial contract. I do not accept payment in Federal Reserve notes. I do nothing that will bring me attention from law enforcement agents.
I treat every human being with respect, I do nothing that would harm an individual. I respect the property of others. If I agree to make a payment, I make the payment! I do not seek something for nothing. I only desire to live a life of a Freeman. Holding no obligations to others, and I do not hold others to be obligated to me.
FOTL is a philosophy and a lifestyle. It is not a career to accrue wealth. It is not a system to avoid abiding by laws. It is a state of mind, a belief system, a code of honor!
Although certain individuals believe that claiming Freeman On The Land status makes them immune from Statute Law These individuals have a difficult time convincing anyone in Court of their theories. There is nothing that can be done by the individual that will designate them as having a Right to avoid Statutes that have been passed by representatives of the people. At least not until the proper case is brought before the law that will result in a positive decision for the Freeman. Once a case sets precedent in the matter, the Freeman will have a better opportunity to alter the existing legal system.
You are free!
Do your own research to determine your actual status in society. You were born a free human being, what could possibly have been done to alter this fact?
