Not every American[1], not every individual "born in America", Anthony Gregory, only those who "are members of the political community who...have...submitted themselves to the dominion of [the] government for the promotion of their general welfare and the protection of their individual...rights", i.e. just 14th Amendment United States citizens.

As I have written elsewhere, individuals "who are in no way parties to [the] covenant [the Constitution] or transaction, nor bound by it", are "strangers" to the "national" debt. A "stranger", (legally speaking), is, "one who, in no event resulting from the existing state of affairs, can become liable for the debt, and whose property is not charged with the payment thereof and cannot be sold therefor".

"A friend once astutely suggested that a sign of maturity in these matters lies in the question of whether you define yourself by what you're against or what you're for. Do you just rage against Leviathan, or do you really seek freedom in the life you have now? Really contemplating that question, and acting on the answers you find, can have a startling effect on many aspects of your life. In terms of physical and emotional comfort, it's not necessarily a positive effect. So it's important to choose carefully. Leviathan doesn't care what you think or what you say, as long as as you don't say it too loud. But when you start doing freedom, you can get yourself into trouble. And by doing freedom, I don't mean [just] obsessing about guns. I mean actively disregarding the Beast in favor of getting on with your life, understanding (this part's really important) that that sort of disrespect can get you eaten, and bloody doing it anyway." ~ Joel http://theultimateanswertokings.blogspot.com/2010_03_01_archive.html
