I knew a guy years ago that the day Clinton was elected he applied to be a sovereign citizen. He stopped paying taxes and went to Court to get all the money he paid into Social Security back. He was an interesting character.

When will he have his first parole hearing?

Last I heard he was still going through the process. He was not the first person to do this, just the first one I knew personally.

The government does allow it, they just make it time consuming and expensive.

They succeeded (to one degree or another) in Hutt River and Sealand.

There were Molossians in ancient Greece, but they had a kingdom, not a republic.

According to Thucydides, when Themistocles was wanted by the Athenians (who probably would have condemned him to death), he took refuge briefly with the king of the Molossians before eventually making his way to the Persian Empire (The Peloponnesian War, book I, chapter 136).

They would be most pleased to know, one supposes, that the clubhouse of the RBYC is in Africa.

The king of the Molossians mentions Themistocles on his website?

I think the war dogs of Molossus were the forebears of our Great Danes, Mastiffs, etc.

I’d found a Republic of Maryann, but we’d probably go to war with the Republic of Ginger.
