|You gotta realize that FRNs are a PRIVATE scrip, just like c asino tokens. And just as c asino tokens are legal tender everywhere within the c asino, FRNs are legal tender everywhere within federal jurisdiction.
FRNs are NOT money, just as c asino tokens aren’t money. FRNs are a money SUBSTITUTE issued by a PRIVATE party, as the federal gov’t is a FOREIGN corporation with respect to states of the Union. But it so happens that 14th Am. US citizens are subject to federal jurisdiction, WHEREVER they are in the world, so they must abide by the US/c asino rules, under which the tokens are means of payment.
“United States” is the incorporated “District of Columbia“.
“The United States government is a foreign corporation with respect to a State”

And just as you can’t use REAL money to gamble in a casino, you can’t use REAL money (silver and gold) within the jurisdiction of the federal US. And that’s because both of these are under PRIVATE rules (Public POLICY), while in the REAL world, Public LAW applies. Well, you CAN use real money in US, but the US “gov’t” won’t accept silver and gold, because then the federal US’d have to deal with you under common law, where their private, corporate nature would be revealed.
So basically, when you pay with REAL gold money in the United States, you’re entitled to the protection of Public LAW, and are NOT subject to its PRIVATE rules (Public POLICY).
And the reason why States can enforce their arbitrary rules on you is because when you use FRNs as money, you’re using NEGOTIABLE INSTRUMENTS, which is COMMERCE, and States have the authority to regulate commerce.
BUT when you make private contracts in real GOLD money, then you no longer engage in commerce, and so are entitled to the protection of Public (common) LAW, and no longer are under the State’s statutory jurisdiction.
So buying something with gold in US, would be like buying something with FRNs in a casino. Such a transaction in a casino would NOT be subject to casino rules, as it was not done with casino tokens, but with real money, which requires real law, not a private law if there’s a dispute. Ergo, transacting in gold money entitles you to the protection of the real law, and is outside of the statutory jurisdiction of the State. You just gotta demand that it is so.
FYI, casinos use private tokens, because if they used real money, any dispute would have to be decided in a COURT, and not administratively, by the casino itself. It’s basically the same reason why real money was removed from circulation in US; use of real GOLD money, entitles people to REAL, common law, while a use of money substitutes such as FRNs, puts you under State’s arbitrary, STATUTORY jurisdiction (=rule of majority=Democracy). While being under common law, PROTECTS you from that mob rule, for there is no crime under common law, unless there’s an INJURED PARTY.
AMERICANS ARE NOT IN THE UNITED STATES!
18 U.S. Code § 5 – United States defined
“The term “United States”, as used in this title in a territorial sense, includes all places and waters, continental or insular, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, except the Canal Zone.” (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 685.)
WHAT’s YOUR STATUS?
And if you want out, just tell the IRS that you are a non-resident alien (State citizen or inhabitant) and ask them for a form to change the status of your SSN into an ITIN. Then you can file a W8-BEN form with your employer and mark EXEMPT on line 7 of the W4 form.
BTW, there are about 100 boundary stones around District of Columbia. And on the inside of the stones, it says “Jurisdiction of the United States”. That’s a proof positive that jurisdiction of US is limited to District of Columbia. SO you now know what is the territorial United States, that form W8-BEN talks about.
