I've only recently become aware of this Sovereign Citizen "thing". I don't know what to call it so I'll go with "thing". Is it a dodge? Is it mental illness? Is it an excuse to not pay taxes? Is it the last recourse for people with multiple DUI or no proof of insurance?
I find the idea fascinating. Do I understand the concept correctly? These people declare themselves to be their own "Country" and therefore are exempt from the laws of the country they are residing in? Is the idea that "I don't have to obey the laws of this country because I am not a citizen here?" "I've got 5 DWIs but in "my country", where I live, the country of wjvail, DUI is not a crime and therefore no laws have been broken?"
For that matter, if I (the person) rent a car in Peru, I (the person) would expect to have to follow the laws of Peru. Or, as a Sovereign Citizen (the country) could I claim diplomatic immunity?
Can one sovereign citizen declare war on another sovereign citizen, wage war on that "country", shoot them with a RPG, and as long as it's done within the guidelines of the Geneva Convention, no US law has been broken - because US law doesn't apply?
7.5 billion "citizens" creating a set of laws that only applies to an individual. My mind boggles over the possibilities.
"Well, nothing bad can happen now."
