Wake Up, Please, and Tell Me— Are You A Puerto Rican? — by Anna von Reitz
Your birthright nationality is as an American State Citizen. You are a Native of the state where you were born. See Article IV, Section 2 of the Federal Constitution — “State Citizen”.
Also see Government Printing Office Manual (2000) at Section 5.22 and 5.23, page 93 (http:// www.gpoaccess. gov/stylemanual/2000/chapter txt-5.html) — “Natives of a State” and “State Nationals” [also sometimes called “Domestic Aliens” and “Non-resident Aliens” in Federal publications.]

5.23 In designating the natives of the States the following forms will be used:
You are a living, breathing American and that means you are a Minnesotan, a Vermonter, a Texan—- not a “US citizen”.
So what is a “US citizen”? From the standpoint of the Federal Government, a “US citizen” is a citizen of “the territories and District of Columbia” —- and has been since 1864. In that year, Congress passed an act changing the meaning of “state, States and United States” to mean “the territories and District of Columbia”.
Kitchens v. Steele, 112 F.Supp 383 “A citizen of the United States is a citizen of the federal government…”
“Congress has exclusive legislative jurisdiction over citizens of Washington District of Columbia and through their plenary power nationally covers those citizens even when in one of the several states as though the district expands for the purpose of regulating its citizens wherever they go throughout the states in union.” (National Mutual Insurance Company of the District of Columbia v. Tidewater Transfer Company, 337 U.S. 582, 93 L.ED. 1556 (1948).
Federal civilian and military personnel are considered “US citizens” while so employed, political asylum seekers, African Americans (who were never granted State Citizenship), and welfare recipients as well as people born in Puerto Rico, Puerto Ricans, people from Guam, American Samoa, the American Virgin Islands, Washington, DC, etc., and—- flag this—–all corporations formed under US auspices, are considered “US citizens”.
So—- are you a Puerto Rican? Do you mean to function as a corporate franchisee of the United States, Inc. under Puerto Rican law? No? You don’t want to be “subject” to the “plenary power” of nutcases like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid?
So why are you claiming to be a “US citizen” of any kind? Why are you “offering” to be a slave and chattel belonging to the UNITED STATES, INC. and to be subject to every whim of Congress, when you were lucky enough to be born in a state of the Union?
