Meet Your “Legal Person”


by Dan O’Brien

The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson and approved by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776

(Oct. 14, 2011) — What does knowing your Legal Person mean?  It means:

  • Getting the government off your back and out of your pocketbook;
  • Not having to be licensed simply to exercise your natural rights.
  • No crime was committed unless you intentionally created harm to someone;

If these examples are important to you, then what you are about to learn, though bizarre, unreal, and too far out to believe, is the unfortunate truth, and vert important to know.

Basically, your Legal Person obscures your valuable American rights, described in the Declaration of Independence, and subjects you instead to the commercial world of a gazillion statutes, licenses, regulations, registrations, income taxes, permits, and sundry other burdens.  Do these seem familiar?

These insidious events began when southern States, with cause, seceded from the U.S., which on March 27, 1861 temporarily disabled Congress, and therefore the “United States” central government, for lack of a quorum.  Within weeks Lincoln, as Commander in Chief, declared martial rule by Executive Order, the nation’s first.  You should be very angry that, thousands of Executive Orders later, we are still under martial rule.

During the turmoil of the Civil War, and the ensuing decade, the strong, pent-up commercial interests of emerging industries such as railroads, steam power, electrification, gold and silver mining, banking, and the like, began dismantling lawful control of the U.S. government through devious means, including un-ratified constitutional amendments, with the intent to advance commerce and commercialism.


  • In 1868 the phrase “citizen of the United States” became a new form of citizenship for emancipated slaves, trusts, corporations and other “fictional persons,” which provided them limited civil rights;
  • In 1870 the U.S. Supreme Court lost much of its power to the Executive branch’s newly enacted Department of Justice;
  • In 1871 a private, for-profit, internationally owned British corporation, dubbed the “United States,” was seated in the District of Columbia by act of the U.S. Congress, which included its territories, possessions and commonwealth.’
  • By default, the several States outside the “United States” are still known as the “United States of America.”  (See US Code Title 28, Section 1746 for evidence.)

The consequence of these and other changes is that subsequent statutes, and the entire court system of the United States, emerged under a Law Merchant system that neither man nor woman, as sovereigns in their republics, are obliged to obey.  However, to obligate men and women, Legal Persons (a form of “fictional persons”) were created:

  • At childbirth the mother is encouraged to describe her newborn child to the government, and provide the information using her maiden name.
  • This certificate of live birth is forwarded to the Department of Commerce, establishing the newborn’s future rights to the commonwealth of the nation.
  • In return, a government Birth Certificate is issued, typically with the child’s name spelled in all capital letters, or with an abbreviated middle name.

However, the Birth Certificate is not about the child.  Instead it is the embodiment of the newly created and naturalized Legal Person, as a 14th Amendment “citizen of the United States” and subject to the jurisdiction thereof (i.e., the statutes, etc.).  This Legal Person is the property of a trust to which the child is the Beneficiary and full owner of its equity; and to which the state, by default, becomes Executor (because the child, born to a maiden, is legally disabled!).  The government became the Trustee, and therefore holds title to the Legal Person.  Upon reaching majority (18 years of age) the child, still as Beneficiary, becomes the Master, and can appoint a new Executor (usually himself) at any time, except for the fact he is unaware of the trust, due to our public, government-managed, cookie-cutter education.

So, what happens next?

Typically, the 18 year-old Master acquires a driver license and his first car, which is also licensed, and will someday register to vote.  During these formative years he finds himself in occasional trouble with the law, even though he has not committed intentional harm to anyone.  The Master believes he is subject to the statutes, but in reality it is the Legal Person that is being charged with infractions, and then only on the presumption that the Legal Person is somehow engaged in performing functions as a government employee or contractor, based on the existence of those licenses, and other such evidence.  Unaware of his non-involvement, and that it is his responsibility to refute the presumptions of the Legal Person, sadly the Master then either satisfies the fine or goes to jail.

We now learn that the remedy for the Master is to appoint himself as Executor of the trust, which he has right to do, and then as Executor to demand to see the contract that binds the Legal Person to the statutes.  Unless the Master himself is a policeman, judge, government agent, or by some other direct means under contract to the government and performing that function at the time of the infraction, thereby obligating government liability to his harmful ways, no contract should exist.

So, when charged with violation of a statute, consider refuting the charges by declaring yourself in advance of the court date to be both the Master and Executor (or other title of authority) to the Legal Person trust, in which the government is Trustee, and demand proof that the Legal Person was performing under valid government contract at the time of the infraction.  You will then be able to sleep much better at night.  To become more familiar with this conundrum, your remedies and precautions, watch Dean Clifford’s excellent video presentations at

    This article opens up a whole new window to our relationship with government, and the historical and legal (or illegal) aspects of the government. To suggest that we are no longer members of the same legal society of our Founders is at once to be at odds with our present state and federal governments. To suggest that the federal government is no longer operating legally is to state the obvious.

    So, what to do about it. The states created the federal government in 1787 with the creation and adoption of the Constitution for the United States. It would be my position that the good people of these present-day united states force their own state governments to correct this unlawful relationship with the federal government, or, alternatively, act as the sovereign states they are, and sever their relationships with the now corrupt, unconstitutional, and no longer representative federal government.

    Repairs, if done, must be done by the state governments, as the federal government is NOT self-maintaining, and the people are powerless to fix the problems except by rebellion. Americans either need to have a lawful government, or we would be better off without any government at all, for to have an unlawful government is a tyranny similar to the tyranny we threw off in the late eighteenth century. Although, to be honest, the tyranny we experience and tolerate today is far worse than that tyranny complained of by the colonists.

    History is repeating itself once again.
