Hierarchies create the problem FIRSTThis is one of the many example’s that show how hierarchies evolve power brokerage cartels. It’s all about control over other human beings. You have to know a whole bunch of useless information “laws” to “prove” that you have the “right” to exist and not bother anyone while feeding yourself and your family. In a non hierarchical , non bureaucratic, voluntaryist society, we would be expending our creative energies to make the world a better place. People would not be wasting their time writing or reading the following information and being concerned about having to pay or not pay our “tribute” for a “license” to do something that is as basic as eating or breathing. The ability to travel is long since documented a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT. Now the BORG Agents (COPS) are programed to contract with those unsuspecting slaves the “pull over”. The courts can charge those a ‘penalty” for not following the rules, the unsuspecting slave agreed to follow when you got your “drivers license”. Basically when you go to “court”, it’s really an administrative hearing. They are not going to hear these arguments BECAUSE your car is titled with the state, you have insurance and you have a drivers license. You are operating in commerce and therefore you are “Driving” and you loose.
I suggest you read the following Transportation Stop Action Script. I have not used it yet however you are putting the BORG agent on notice that he is not following the rules. Its just another leg to stand on. It is HIGHLY recommended!
The Right to Travel Freely is Guaranteed
Supreme Court Decisions which pertain to the Right to TravelThe Passenger Cases (7 Howard) 7 How. 283 (1849) “We are all citizens of the United States; and, as members of the same community, must have the right to pass and repass through every part of it without interruption.” Murdock v. Pennsylvania 319 US 105 (1943) “A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the Federal Constitution.  Freedom of press, freedom of speech, freedom of religion are in a preferred position…the privilege in question exists apart from state authority. It is guaranteed the people by the Federal Constitution.”  Kent v. Dulles 357 US 116 (1958) “The right to travel is a part of the ‘liberty’ of which the citizen cannot be deprived without the due process of law under the fifth amendment.” NAACP vs. Alabama 357 US 449 (1958) “Like the right of association [the right to travel freely] is a virtually unconditional personal right guaranteed by the constitution to us all.” Aphtheker v. Sec. Of State 378 US 500 (1964) “…a personal liberty protected by the Bill of Rights…Freedom of travel is a constitutional liberty closely related to the rights of free speech and association…the constitutional right to travel has been firmly established and repeatedly recognized…that a right so elementary was conceived from the beginning…In any event, freedom to travel throughout the United States has long been recognized as a basic right under the constitution.” United States v. Guest 383 US 745 (1966) “The constitutional right to travel…is a right that has been firmly established and repeatedly recognized…a right so elementary was conceived from the beginning…In any event, freedom to travel throughout the United States has long been recognized as a basic right under the constitution” Shapiro v. Thompson 394 US 618 (1969) “…freedom to travel is an element of the “liberty” secured by [the due process clause of the fifth amendment.]” Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham 394 US 147 (1969) [not: 373 US 262(63)] “…our decisions have made clear that a person faced with…an unconstitutional licensing law may ignore it and engage with impunity in the exercise of the right…for which the law purports to require a license.”
Constitutionally Guaranteed Right Cannot Be Converted Into A CrimeMiller v. US (5th Circuit) 230 F. 2d. 486 (1956) “The claim and exercise of a constitutional right cannot thus be converted into a crime” Miranda v. Arizona 384 US 436 (1966) “Where rights are secured by the constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.” Hale v. Henkel 201 US 43 (1906) “…There is a clear distinction…between an individual and a corporation…The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way…He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights. Upon the other hand, the corporation is a creature of the state…it’s powers are limited by law.” Byars v. United States 273 US 28 (1927) “…it is the duty of courts to be watchful for the constitutional rights of the citizen, and against any stealthy encroachment thereon.” Marbury v. Madison (1 Cranch 170) 5 US 137 (1803) “…a legislative act contrary to the constitution is not law…an act of the legislature repugnant to the constitution is void.” Norton v. Shelby County 118 US 425 (1886) “An unconstitutional act is not law…it imposes no duty…it is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” Mugler v. Kansas 123 US 623 (1887) “The supreme court of the United States is, however, the final expositor and arbiter of all disputed questions touching the scope and meaning of that sacred instrument [the US Constitution], and its decisions thereon are binding upon all courts, both state and federal.” Ex Parte Young 209 US 123 (1908) “The Eleventh Amendment provides no shield for a state official confronted by a claim that he had deprived another of a federal right under the color of state law…when a state officer acts under a state law in a manner violative of the federal constitution. And he is, in that case, stripped of his official or representative character, and is subjected in his person to the consequences of his individual conduct. The state has no power to impart to him any immunity from responsibility to the supreme authority of the United States.” Staub v. Baxley 355 US 313 (1958) “…an ordinance which makes the peaceful enjoyment of freedoms which the constitution guarantees contingent upon the uncontrolled will of an official – as by requiring a permit or license which may be granted or withheld in the discretion of such official – is an unconstitutional censorship or prior restraint upon the enjoyment of those freedoms.” United States v. Jackson 390 US 570 (1968) “If a law has ‘no other purpose…’ than to chill the assertion of constitutional rights by penalizing those who choose to exercise them, then it [is] patently unconstitutional.” Cohens v. Virginia (6 Wheaton) 19 US 264 (1821) “A law cannot exceed the authority of the lawgiver. We have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the constitution. The several state legislatures and judiciaries, are all bound by solemn obligation of an oath, to support the federal constitution;…willfully legislating in violation of that constitution…[is] guilty of perjury. ”
Without Willful Intent To Violate The Law There Is No Crime.United States v. Murdock 290 US 389 (1933) “The [Supreme] Court has recognized that the word “willfully” generally connotes a voluntary, intentional violation of a known legal duty. It has formulated the requirement of wilfulness as “bad faith or evil intent.” Spies v. United States 317 US 492 (1943) “…the word “willfully”…generally connotes a voluntary, intentional violation of a known duty. It is not the purpose of the law to penalize frank differences of opinion or innocent errors made despite the exercise of reasonable care” Sansone v. United States 380 US 343 (1965) “If his action was not willful, he was [not] guilty.” United States v. Bishop 412 US 346 (1973) “The court, in fact, has recognized that the word “willfully” in these statutes generally connotes a voluntary, intentional violation of a known legal duty. It has formulated the requirement of willfulness as “bad faith or evil intent,” …if his action was not willful, he was [not] guilty…”< Evans v. United States 504 US 255 (1992) “[The] offense of extortion” was understood…[as] a wrongful taking under a false pretense of official right”  and citing White v. State, 56 Ga. 385 & 389 (1876) “generically extortion is an abuse of public justice and a misuse by oppression of the power with which the law clothes a public officer.”  ADDENDUM Black’s Law Dictionary, 5th Edition (1979) License (In re: Streets & Highways): “The privilege of using the streets and highways by the operation thereon of motor carriers for hire can be acquired by permission or license from the state or it’s political subdivision.” There are numerous decisions in state supreme courts throughout the United States on the right to travel. They all can be summed up best by the Virginia case: Thompson v. Smith 155 Va. 367, 154 S.E. 579, 71 ALR 604 (1930) “The right of a citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon in the ordinary course of life and business is a common right which he has under his right to enjoy life and liberty, to acquire and possess property, and pursue happiness and security. It includes the right in so doing to use the ordinary and usual conveyances of the day, and includes the right to operate an automobile thereon, for the usual and ordinary purposes of life and business. It is not a privilege, like the privilege of moving a house on the street, operating a business stand on the street, or transporting persons or property for hire along the street, which a city may permit or prohibit at will.” In Re: Charles Stark v. City of San Francisco Cal. Surpreme CT. (1914) “The occupation of a chauffeur is one calling for regulation, and therefore permitting a regulatory license fee, under the rule that when a calling or profession or business is attended with danger or requires a certain degree of scientific knowledge upon which others must rely, then legislation properly steps in and imposes conditions upon its exercise.”
The United States code expressly defines the term Motor Vehicle:Title 18 U.S.C. § 31 (6) “The term ‘motor vehicle’ means every description of a carriage or other contrivance propelled or drawn by mechanical power and used for commercial purposes.”
Constitution for the United [Sovereign Republics] States of America Article VI paragraph II:“This constitution and the laws of the United States…; and all treaties made or which shall be made…shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any state to the contrary not withstanding…” Now that we have a much clearer understanding of what the Constitution, the supreme court decisions and the U.S. Code actually say on the subject; how can we apply this knowledge to our situation? First: If you “drive” a taxi, limousine, etc…or haul any kind of cargo for Hire; then you are required to have a “driver’s license!” But: If you are NOT engaged in “commercial” activity and do not “carry passengers and/or cargo for hire;” then you do NOT need a “driver’s license”!
- Because; you are not “driving,” you are “traveling.” Because; you are not operating a “motor vehicle;” you are traveling in an “automobile;” “horse-less carriage,” “truck,” “van,” etc…
- Because; you are not transporting “passengers;” they are your traveling “companions” or “guests.”
- Because; you are not carrying “cargo,” it is “private property;” (No matter what you do with it, when you reach your destination.)
- Because; the Supreme Court says you DON’T need any form of “license” or pay any “fee,”to enjoy your “liberty” and your constitutional rights!
