Not to me, or to you(unless you are a citizen born
upon the federal soil, or one subject to the express
legislative authority of Congress), this is for sure.
Therefore, once again you prove my point in fact, as
you site a section of code which is relevant only to a

one else. Do you have any information which would show
in fact where anyone has ever even got a case heard
before this tribunal? I doubt it. Also, what types of
cases does this alleged court hear? What is the nature
and cause of the action before the court in the case
you reference? Who were the combatants in the case?
Were they true corporeal beings or were they fictions?

that since you and I (and possibly everyone else)are
not party to the convention, the two stripe "Red Fox
Stamp" has no more significance than any other style
of/or denomination of any other postal stamp, other
than to perform according to the contract entered into
by the parties subject to the contract of the postal
agreement. No mythical magic being applied thereto,
because I attached a Red Fox Stamp to the corners of
my documents and therefore the documents have some
mythical secret overture in law to grant me remedy
which I would not otherwise be entitled.]

who believe otherwise. To those who believe that the
Red Fox Stamp attaches some magical form of law to a
document, you are, as far as I can determine from the
public record, in error. It will avail you no more
remedy in law, than if you winked your eye, spun in a
circle three times and said the right magic words, and

live in a republic while others swear it is a democracy.
Some people will deal in debt, and some will not. The reason gold is
money is because it is a store of value and a medium of exchange. It is
perfect U.S. money for transacting common law exchanges of property, or
labor. Notice that even in the secretary's eyes, it all depends upon
how the parties "view" the gold. Isn't that interesting? And notice
the clever slight of hand trying to equate "discharge of debt" (in
equity jurisdiction, no doubt) with "payment" at the common law, which
finally extinguishes debt (while "discharge" merely transfers it to
another party), and usually avoids debt creation altogether. The
secretary depends upon the people involved to have a view. Should we
do some man-on the street interviews and see how many Post-911
Americans have a view on the topic?
The Secretary of the Treasury has to maintain an opinion (but you don't
have to agree with it!) that permits the monetization of debt as
politically driven public policy. But one who claims his rights to
property, and exercises them with gold and silver, cannot be made to
part with his common law substance only to be "compensated" with
"elastic" units of irredeemable bad debt. That result, where the human
suddenly awakes to the fact that he lost his gold and now has a right
to pursue debt in court, until he accepts paper fiat legal tender ( or
better yet, "a deposit liability") is a voluntary action. He must
first have permitted a debt to be created. This requires consciousness
in the moment, and a timely objection when debt is being offered.
Because once a debt exists, so-called "legal tender" can discharge it
by government fiat.
The old method of "cash on the barrelhead" protected everyone, with no
one having to become either a creditor or a debtor, and wouldn't that
feel nice in this time when the more you borrow the richer you become,
when nothing is lent and nothing is paid back? "And yet real goods
and services are transferred to the government."
