For those with some knowledge of Common Law and a republican form of governance or self-governance, if you will, and are ready to help build our/your Common Law Township, click HERE to view the model that we’re using and if in agreement, contact us now via email or join us on a call. Check the calendar for dates/times & call-in information.
For those that are new to the concepts of Common Law and Sovereignty, this is a great place to start. You will find lots of good stuff in plain English that is not taught in law school. Warning: If you are an idealistic sort of person who tends to side with freedom for the people, then this site may be your government’s worst nightmare, especially after you read about jury duty (opens new tab off-site), what the legal difference is between being one of the people of the country and one of the citizens, and why the pledge of allegiance is to the Republic instead of a democracy.
“Each time a man stands up for an
idea, or acts to improve the lot of others, or
strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of
hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers
of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which
can sweep down the mightiest walls of
oppression and resistance.”
Robert F. Kennedy
June 6th, 1966
Before you begin you should have a general knowledge of how this concept works.
IF YOU ARE AN ATTORNEY, please understand that herein is a completely different perspective on the law. This is not business as usual. Your education was primarily geared to equity law. This site is primarily about common law, which is similar, but sufficiently different that to benefit from it you must be prepared to revamp your perspective.
READ EVERYTHING IN THIS WEB PAGE. As you progress, click on each underlined link and read the linked page. It is not important that you immediately understand everything you read. What is important is that you get “eyeball exposure” to all the information. The understanding/comprehension will come later because you will recall the information as you work with it and discuss it with others.
Once you have been thus exposed to the information, we will be much more effective in our conversation.
