Start to learn Common Law, the Law of the Land.

An Act is not Law in a Court of Record, otherwise known as a Court of Law. If
you know the difference, you can put the gentlemen who run this fraud in their
place. You don't have Courts of Law, only corporate, administrative, admiralty
courts - a fraud upon the people.

Do your own research. Tell this to the young man in England. Common Law is his
birthright. It is the same in America, except you cannot find a man who can tell
you what the law of the land is.

I'm willing to advise, 100% confidentiality guaranteed via open source based
operating system and PGP email, 4096 bit RSA keys, no back doors.
