The U.S. Supreme Court has written: Citizenship is membership in a political society, and implies a duty of allegiance on the part of the member and a duty of protection on the part of the society. These are reciprocal obligations, one being a compensation for the other. Luria v, U.S., 231 U.S. 9, 22. (1913)
No duty to protect means there is no corresponding obligation of allegience. No allegiance to their million+ laws, statutes and regulations.
A State is a body politic — political society. A body politic is the citizens.
Connect the dots:
There is no duty to protect > there is no obligation of allegiance > there are no citizens > there is no body politic — no political society > there is no State.
Factually what is a State? What is the State of Arizona? The State of Arizona is an act of congress words on paper. A legal fiction. Prior to February 14, 1912, the State of Arizona didnt exist.
What is government? Men and women providing services by compulsion/violence.
Politicians dont represent people. Pay the tax or go to jail isnt representation. Its ownership, or at least enslavement.
