Those who already walk submissively will say there is no cause for alarm. But submissiveness is not our heritage. The First Amendment was designed to allow rebellion to remain as our heritage. The Constitution was designed to keep government off the backs of the people. The Bill of Rights was added to keep the precincts of belief and expression, of the press, of political and social activities free from surveillance. The Bill of Rights was designed to keep agents of government and official eavesdroppers away from assemblies of people. The aim was to allow men to be free and independent and to assert their rights against government. There can be no influence more paralyzing of that objective than Army surveillance. When an intelligence officer looks over every nonconformist’s shoulder in the library, or walks invisibly by his side in a picket line, or infiltrates his club, the America once extolled as the voice of liberty heard around the world no longer is cast in the image which Jefferson and Madison designed, but more in the Russian image.

Damn! I wish that I thought of that. I didn’t. William Orville Douglas whipped that up in 1972 as a dissenting opinion for the Laird v. Tatum, case (408 U.S. 1). In 1972, “the Russian image” was a reference to the specific ideology of the tyranny that controlled the people and not a deeply held popular view generally observed at the time.

When I say that I believe not only in the right of the people to rule, but in their duty to rule themselves and to refuse to submit to being ruled by others, I am not using a figure of speech, I am speaking of a vital issue which fundamentally affects our whole American life. I not merely admit but insist that in all government, and especially in popular government, there must be control; and, furthermore, that if control does not come from within it must come from without. Therefore it is essential that any people which engages in the difficult experiment of self-government should be able to practise self-control. There are peoples in the world which have proved by their lamentable experiences that they are not capable of this self-control; but I contend that the American people most emphatically are capable of it. I hold that in the long run, taken as a whole, our people can and will govern themselves a great deal better than any small set of men can govern them.

I’d like to take some credit for that quote too. But that came from the president of the U.S., March 28, 1912, at St. Louis, Mo.  He also said at Jamestown Exposition, April 26, 1907.:

“We of this mighty western Republic have to grapple with the dangers that spring from popular self-government tried on a scale incomparably vaster than ever before in the history of mankind, and from an abounding material prosperity greater also than anything which the world has hitherto seen. As regards the first set of dangers It behooves us to remember that men can never escape being governed. Either they must govern themselves or they must submit to being governed by others. If from lawlessness or fickleness, from folly or self-indulgence, they refuse to govern themselves, then most assuredly in the end they will have to be governed from the outside.” The question is – ‘governed how or by whom?’ As subject-citizen-debtor-slaves they must submit. They can prevent the need of government from without only by showing that they possess the power of government from within. A sovereign cannot make excuses for his failures; a sovereign must accept the responsibility for the exercise of the power that inheres in him; and where, as is true in our Republic, the people are sovereign, then the people must show a sober understanding and a sane and steadfast purpose if they are to preserve that orderly liberty upon which as a foundation every republic must rest.

“They who have put out the people’s eyes,  reproach them of their blindness”

News stories of arrests of victimless “crimes” such as collecting rain water and planting gardens without permits have appeared in various media reports in increasing frequency.
Here are a few actual headlines: August 2012, “Oregon Resident, Sentenced To Jail For Stockpiling Rainwater”, “Man Arrested For Collecting Rainwater On His Property”, “Collecting Rainwater Now Illegal in Many States”, “Atlanta Proposes Charging for Collected Rainwater”, “Texas Police Hit Organic Farm With Massive SWAT Raid” http://thefreethoughtproject.com/swat-team-heroically-ends-6-hour-standoff-empty-apartment/,

Military type raids by U.S. agencies have escalated to around 40,000 per year as of 2006(http://www.cato.org/sites/cato.org/files/pubs/pdf/balko_whitepaper_2006.pdf). Some jurisdictions report more than 50 percent of SWAT operations carried out were for misdemeanors or non-serious felonies.

A Huffington Post article in June of 2011, “SWAT Team Mania: The War Against the American Citizen”, asks the question “How did we allow ourselves to travel so far down the road to a police state?” Whatever conclusion that particular piece may reflect, here are some more pragmatic aspects each individual contributes to the culture of self-imposed submission to a guardian/ward relationship with the STATE as the guardian and YOU as the ward.

Here it’s noted that fighting FEMA is expensive; http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/average-joes-fighting-fema-flood-maps-isnt-easy-or-cheap-n23871 . It may very well be expensive IF FEMA is fought. If one doesn’t register their home, i.e. no address there is no fight, no issue, no standing. It would be the same as having a Canadian “authority” attempt to press charges or create a controversy over property located in Texas. There would be zero possibility of jurisdiction.

When anyone SUBMITS APPLICATIONS for REGISTRATION they surrender their property to the State. ( http://1828.mshaffer.com/d/word/submit -“To yield, resign or surrender to the power, will or authority of another…”)

This is called a “split title“. Title is divided into “equitable” and “legal“.

Black’s Law 8th dictionary: OWNER page 3502

“1) Beneficial Owner. 1. One recognized in equity as the owner of something because use and title belong to that person, even though legal title may belong to someone else; esp., one for whom property is held in trust. — Also termed “equitable owner”

2) Legal Owner.One recognized by law as the owner of something; esp., one who holds legal title to property for the benefit of another. See TRUSTEE”

Anything that is ‘registered’ has a license or an “address”.

http://1828.mshaffer.com/d/word/address

#6 “To consign”

http://1828.mshaffer.com/d/word/consign

“To give…”

http://1828.mshaffer.com/d/word/give

“1. To bestow; to confer; to pass or transfer the title or property of a thing to another person without an equivalent or compensation.”

Anyone who has registered their home has given control to the State. All “homeowners” with a numerical address assigned by a civil government are merely ‘tenants in common’ who delusionally believe that they own their home. Historically, homes or estates were named by the owners such as Blackacre, The Hermitage, Mount Vernon, Monticello, etc.

Registration — Effect.

” The obtaining of a decree of registration and receiving of a certificate of title shall be deemed an agreement running with the land and binding upon the applicant and the successors in title, …”

Did you catch that?

“…shall be deemed an agreement running with the land…”

http://1828.mshaffer.com/d/word/contract

1. An agreement or covenant between two or more persons, in which each party binds himself to do or forbear some act, and each acquires a right to what the other promises; a mutual promise upon lawful consideration or promise upon lawful consideration or cause, which binds the parties to a performance; a bargain; a compact.

In foreclosure claims, the trustee always refers to the defendant as an “occupant”. An occupant is one who is merely a possessor with no rights in title.

“OWNERSHIP”  See Black’s 8th Page 3503
“Possession is the de facto exercise of a claim; ownership is the de jure recognition of one. A thing is owned by me when my claim to it is maintained by the will of the state as expressed in the law; it is possessed by me, when my claim to it is maintained by my own self-assertive will. Ownership is the guarantee of the law; possession is the guarantee of the facts. It is well to have both forms if possible; and indeed they normally co-exist.” John Salmond, Jurisprudence 311 (Glanville L. Williams ed., 10th ed. 1947).

QUALIFIED OWNERSHIP
” qualified ownership. Ownership that is shared, restricted to a particular use, or limited in the
extent of its enjoyment. “
