From Wikipedia:

The sovereign citizen movement is a loose network of American litigants, commentators and financial scheme promoters. Self-described “sovereign citizens” believe that they are answerable only to English common law and are not subject to any statutes or proceedings at the federal, state or municipal levels. They especially reject most forms of taxation as illegitimate.[1] Participants in the movement argue this concept in opposition to “federal citizens,” who, they believe, have unknowingly forfeited their rights by accepting some aspect of federal law.[2]

    There is no such thing as a “sovereign citizen”,you are either sovereign or you are a citizen.There are some people out there who think violence is the answere,these people are not sovereign,violence is not apart of the sovereign mindset.I recomend doing your own research into the matter and deciding for yourself what is true and what is false.I can say for a fact that Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols were not soveriegn,nor were the two gunman that fired on the police officers.Do unbiased research and decide for yourself.

    I wouldn’t go so far as to demonize these people.The founding fathers would be disgusted with the present federal government.14 trillion debt.Us taxpayer support for worldwide bailouts and support of globalist organizations.almost every department of the US government has an armed enforcement arm.It is my belief, that if government wants to intimidate and fleece the American people,that someday they will get sick of it.It does not mean that such people are horrible,it just means that bullying cannot continue to expand and intensify without pushback.I’m not worried about it at all.American citizens have the power to restore “balance”.We can only hope that it will never be nessessary for the American citizens to remind government that they serve the public,not vice versa.
