We hold this truth to be self evident. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land does not allow or recognize private property ownership (a perfected allodium). From the governing theocracy's administration, a "title" is only is only a privilege in commerce - the State is beneficial owner of each and every, any and all (including people).

    We own our home, no wait, we rent it from the county. It's called a property tax and if you don't pay guess who then owns it.

    Argument of the ages ! Is it yours or not ! If the ancient had not said it, and the the scribe written [ it ] down, I had not known it to be so. For as we all are moved by the one and same Spirit. the Rock. " As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of Thy Paths. The lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people. The Lord will enter into judgment with the Ancients of his people, And the Princes thereof: for you have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses. ( Isaiah 3:12,13,14.)
