Like many American citizens, odds are every year you voluntarily swear under oath that you are a 14th Amendment citizen – which makes you a slave.
Have You Volunteered to be a 14th Amendment Citizen?
“John, am I a 14th Amendment citizen?” Many people, over the 35 years of my research into citizenship, sovereignty, the Constitution and the tax laws of our nation have asked me that question about 14th Amendment citizenship. My answer to the query about 14th Amendment citizenship has been consistently the same. If you read the Supreme Court cases on 14th Amendment citizenship, you will come to the conclusion that you really are not a 14th Amendment citizen unless you are a minority.
…you will come to the conclusion that you really are not a 14th Amendment citizen unless you are a minority.
However, the Supreme Court has held, wrongly, I believe, that each of us is a 14th Amendment citizen.
Here’s how Chief Justice Fuller described the majority’s 14th Amendment citizenship rule in Wong Kim Ark:
The rule was the outcome of the connection in feudalism between the individual and the soil on which he lived, and the allegiance due was that of liege men to their liege lord. It was not local and temporary, as was the obedience to the laws owed by aliens within the dominions of the Crown, but permanent and indissoluble, and not to be cancelled by any change of time or place or circumstances. And it is this rule, pure and simple, which it is asserted determined citizenship of the United States during the entire period prior to the passage of the act of April 9, 1866, and the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment and governed the meaning of the words “citizen of the United States” and “natural-born citizen” used in the Constitution as originally framed and adopted.
I submit that no such rule obtained during the period referred to, and that those words bore no such construction; that the act of April 9, 1866, expressed the contrary rule; that the Fourteenth Amendment prescribed the same rule as the act, and that, if that amendment bears the construction now put upon it, it imposed the English common law rule on this country for the first time, and made it “absolute and unbending” just as Great Britain was being relieved from its inconveniences. United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 707 (1898) (Fuller, J., dissenting) (describing the 14th Amendment citizenship rule adopted by the majority) (emphases mine).
What the Chief Justice was saying, in my opinion, is this: The 14th Amendment citizenship that the majority opinion has held effectively subjects every American to the status of a liege man and that the allegiance that the majority stated every such 14th Amendment citizen owed to the United States was the allegiance of liege men to the liege lord, the federal government and the states.
I simply do not believe that a nation of sovereign citizens would ratify the 14th Amendment citizenship Amendment that would thereby strip away from them and their posterity the sovereignty passed on to them by our Founders at the price of blood and treasure and, by that same 14th Amendment citizenship Amendment, confer upon themselves and their posterity a 14th Amendment citizenship that was nothing more or less than feudal serfdom for themselves and all future generations of Americans.
By far, the very best book I have seen on how the Supreme Court ruled incorrectly on 14th Amendment citizenship is From Sovereign to Serf, Government by the Deception and Treachery of Words.
However, as I show in my book: Taxation by Misrepresentation, the Truth about Income Taxes in Plain English
Almost every American swears under oath that he or she is a 14th Amendment citizen. He or she just doesn’t swear once that he or she is a 14th Amendment citizen and let it go at that; no, he or she swears that he or she is a 14th Amendment citizen yearly.
I also know that the Supreme Court has ruled that the Constitution is to be interpreted in light of the common law of England, because our Founders were Englishmen, familiar with the common law of England. Under the common law, there were only two ways that one could be held to be a serf under the common law, the equivalent of a 14th Amendment citizen:
Evidence that proved that, from “time out of mind,” the individual and his family had always been in a condition of servitude, the English variety of slavery and equivalent to 14th Amendment citizenship; or If the individual himself, or two of his male relatives, swore under oath before a court that he was a serf, the equivalent of today’s 14th Amendment citizen.
Of course, a freeman could always volunteer into a condition of servitude in return for the benefits of the lord’s protection, employment, etc., just as an American can volunteer to be a 14th Amendment citizen for all the benefits received. However, his status as a freeman (or as a 14th Amendment citizen), although encumbered by his volunteering into that condition, did not change. Moreover, he could, at any time, fling up his tenement (all that he had received) and simply walk away, back into English society as a freeman once more.
So, how do we Americans volunteer into the 14th Amendment citizenship, the equivalent of a serf’s status in England?
By what document does any American swear under oath that he is a 14th Amendment citizen?
By signing an IRS Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, you voluntarily swear under oath that you are a 14th Amendment citizen.
I am certain that you are aware that the 13th Amendment forbids involuntary servitude, but does not forbid voluntary servitude. When you sign the Form 1040, you sign under penalties of perjury, today’s form of oath.
The tax regulations state clearly that the income taxes imposed under the tax code apply to only one class of citizen – 14th Amendment citizens. Therefore, when you sign that form, as almost all of us have, you are swearing under oath that you are a 14th Amendment citizen, at least for the taxable year set forth on the Form 1040.
You may feel that you are forced to sign the Form 1040 or go to prison for willful failure to file. However, as I demonstrate very clearly in my book, the tax Code is written very insidiously so that filing it is, in most cases, a voluntary act.

So, now you know how you, and almost every American, have volunteered to be a 14th Amendment citizen, even if the Supreme Court may have ruled incorrectly.
