“The Lakota are five years running after petitioning the State Department for withdrawal.” Bill Buppert [Emphasis added]


    Petition. A written request, embodying an application or prayer from the person or persons preferring it, to the power, body, or person to whom it is presented, for the exercise of his or their authority in the redress of some wrong, or the grant of some favor, privilege, or license. ~ Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition (c.1991), page 1145

One does not pray to the god called state for the “favor, privilege or license” to secede; secession is a natural right, it is not bestowed by any man-made government. Secession is simply the “act of withdrawing from membership in a group”. Did the colonists “petition” the person known as "King George III" for the “favor, privilege, or license” to secede? Not just no, but hell no!! They simply, out of "a decent respect to the opinions of mankind", declared "the causes which [impelled] them to the separation".[1]

Notice, too, that Frank said "individuals have full secession rights". He's right because only individuals have natural rights. Corporations, i.e. "two or more persons united[2]" are examples of "artificial persons", that is to say, they are formed and authorized by human law[3], and as an "artificial" entity, they do not have "natural" anything.

[1] "The Declaration of Independence was and is, no more and no less, than a document justifying secession." ~ Donald Livingston, PhD--Emory University [Emphasis added]

...not a "prayer" for the “favor, privilege, or license” to secede.

[2] Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language

[3] Artificial persons. Persons created and devised by human laws for the purposes of society and government, as distinguished from natural persons. Corporations are examples of artificial persons. ~ Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition (c.1991), page 113

"Federal Reserve Notes would longer be accepted as currency and only conversion to hard specie currencies like minted silver, gold or composite value currency could be used"

Why? Merely "accepting" currency, freely offered by a patron, places no onus[1] on a man. However, accepting "anything" from the government ALWAYS has a string attached.

As proof of this let me pose a question. Assume that I, or my representative, borrow a million babel bux into existence, and I then turn around and freely give it to you at your casino; who lawfully owes the debt?

onus noun ▸if the onus is on someone to do something, it is their responsibility or duty to do it ~ Macmillan Dictionary
