Town Clerk

Ripton, Vermont state

May 22, 2006

Dear Sally,

Here is the Affidavit of which Joyce, on your behalf, had notarized on the 3rd of May, 2006 that I wish to record in the Books of Records for the Township of Ripton. It includes my Declaration of Sovereignty and Removal of Unqualified Signatures and Power of Attorney.

Today, the issue of sovereignty may seem rather complex, yet a sovereign, when considering a man or woman of flesh and blood, is quite simple to comprehend. In retrospect, one must consider the history and nature of the federalization of these union States and the contractual legalese of the corporate central government; our unlawful monetary system and it’s trail to those who benefit. Coupled with this corruption, the social engineering (operant conditioning) of the core beliefs and values of the American Citizenry, individuals or persons will sheepishly comply with these injustices basing their actions upon the premise that they are entitled to a benefit or feeling that their freedom is owed to them. The machinations that continually perpetrate treasonous acts repugnant to our free, constitutional republic are set in place… follow the money. If the proverbial "writing on the wall" is not obvious, then please see 31 U.S.C.A. 3101, amended March 16, 2006. In flesh and blood, mind and soul, I am publicly declaring my sovereignty, inviolate. I will not be party to the destruction of this great Nation that has stood as a model of freedom, nor will I be complicit in the unjust, forced destruction of other sovereign countries and their citizenry.

I, Michael-Hans, Winter, am in this country (the UNITED STATES), but not of this country; I am neutral, a denizen within the Republic of Vermont. Please see the following Affidavit: Declaration of Sovereignty and Removal of Unqualified Signatures and Power of Attorney, pages two through eleven.

Any response, protest or dispute to this Affidavit should be done within twenty (20) days from the last date of the public notice of the recording of this Affidavit and must be directed as exactly prescribed above without the elimination of any brackets or case lettering. Otherwise, any attempted correspondence with the Affiant will be returned to sender, "Refused." I am not a "customer" of the United States Postal Service™.

Enclosed are $84.00 of the unconstitutionally circulated Federal Reserve Bank notes, with limited use, without prejudice, to discharge the recording tax (32 V.S.A. 1671) for this cover and the 11 pages that follow.

Respectfully yours, without prejudice and with the explicit reservation of all my unalienable rights, I am,

 Michael-Hans, Winter





I, Michael-Hans, Winter, jure divino, suae potestate esse Free, Good and Lawful, Christian, in propria persona, by special appearance, having first-hand knowledge of the facts as stated herein, do hereby declare my proper and lawful status with respect to Citizenship, Sovereignty, Removal of Unlawful Signatures and Powers of Attorney to-wit:

  1. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, the undersigned, knowingly, willingly and voluntarily, hereby affirm and state as follows:
  2. I am of lawful age of majority and otherwise competent to make this affirmation; and
  3. I have personal knowledge of the facts stated herein.
  4. I am a Citizen, a natural man, living on the land in Addison county in Vermont state, with such citizenship being synonymous with "the People" wherein sovereignty rests, and have been a Citizen in the de jure union state of Vermont (see 8U.S.C.A 1502) for approximately nine years; and,
  5. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, a Free Private Christian male, a living soul, was born to my parents on the 12th day of December on the twelfth day of the twelfth month of the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and sixty-one in Suffern township in de jure county of Rockland, New York state, one of the de jure states of the union of America; and,
  6. I was sired by Charle-Pius, Winter, a free male born on the 10th day of July 1927, in Vienna Austria, naturalized on December 15th, 1949, in Hackensack, New Jersey, one of the de jure states of the union of America; and,
  7. I was given birth by Virginia Bedard, Winter, a free female, born on the 2nd day of April 1926, in Middlebury township in Addison county, Vermont state, one of the de jure states of the union of America; and,
  8. Virginia Bedard and Charles-Pius, Winter, were one, joined in Holy wedlock at the time of July 24, 1957 and unto them, the genealogy of Winter, I was conceived and born; and,
  9. My Christian name is Michael-Hans, Winter; a.k.a. Michel-Hans, Bedard-Winter; I have no fictitious name, a war name, nor a "dummy corporation" name. See Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Edition, and,
  10. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, have never voluntarily surrendered the rights to my name, as it is wholly owned by myself as private property. It is not, nor never was, a TRADE NAME, and nor will it ever be, and,
  11. As per Article 8 of the Vermont Declaration of Rights I am a "Freeman," a Free Private Christian male, a living soul, without boon, benefit, statutory franchise nor contractual adhesion that could cloud my natural citizenship or the unalienable rights endowed by my Creator: and,
  12. I am an American Citizen, as designated in the Constitution for the united States of America (1787), by virtue as an American National living in the republic state, Vermont, without implications of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States "being born or naturalized," nor unlawful consequences of the coerced Reconstruction Acts of 1867 of the 39th Congress. I am a Citizen as originally established by the Declaration of Independence (1776) with "certain unalienable rights" granted by our Creator and as established by the Articles of Confederation (1777). I am not a United States citizen, see U.S. v. Cruikshank, 92 US 542 (1876); Slaughterhouse Cases 83 U.S. 395, 407 (1873). "Citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment has expressed territorial limitation which prevents its extension to every place over which the government is Sovereign." Jones v. Alfred H. Mayer Co., 379 F2d 33, 43 (1967); U.S. v. Rhodes, 27 Fed. Cas.785, 749 (1866). See also Bowlin v. Commonwealth, 65 Kent. Rep. 5, 29 (1867); Hauge v. CIO, 307 U.S. 496, 509 520 note 1 (1936); Van Valkenburg v. Brown, 43 Cal Rpts 43, 47 (1872).
  13. DECLARATION of sovereignty

    "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

    John 8:32

  14. The Declaration of Independence states: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness; that to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."
  15. Within the Constitution for the United States for America, there exists a clear distinction between natural born Citizens and United States citizens, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President:…" Article 2, section 1, clause 5 and, "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside." Bill of Rights, 14th Amendment, see also In re Rodrigues, W.D. Tex (1897), 81 F. 337. The distinction is not only evident in the proper usage of English (proper nouns being capitalized), but also to where the jurisdiction lies… "thereof… the United States" implying the Federal government granting such privileges and having jurisdiction "thereof" rather than respect to the unalienable Rights in the above mentioned Declaration of Independence, "that all men are created equal... endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." The 14th Amendment (private unilateral contract law) clearly was set forth to establish another rule and structure of government, namely one centralized in nature, also known as the "federalization" of the many states of the union of America as territories. See Hanson v. Denckla, 357 U.S. 235 (1958).
  16. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, am "alien" to the Federal government, " a body corporate for municipal purposes,… have a seal…" the District of Columbia as declared by the District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871, An Act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia, 41st Congress, Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62, the ten-square miles and the territories thereof. See also, Federalist Papers 42. I do not reside within the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, nor in any other Federal Overlay, Territory, Enclave or Possession of the United States. (See Article I, Section 8 Clause 17 of the Constitution for the United States of America.)
  17. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, clearly am not a "person" subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of Congress as defined in Article I, Section 8 Clause 17 of the Constitution for the United States of America and any purported allegiance to the United States is hereby renounced. I am an American, and not a 14th Amendment U.S. citizen, nor a citizen of the United States. "…thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth amendments were designed mainly for the protection of newly emancipated negroes…" and further cited that the "…fourteenth amendment creates and defines citizenship of the United States." United States v. Anthony, 24 Fed. Cas. 829 (1873). I was not naturally born, nor naturalized in a territory over which the United States ("not exceeding ten square miles") is sovereign.
  18. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, have become aware of 8 U.S.C.A. §§ 1481 & 1483, and have noticed that the terms "United States citizen" and "American citizen" appear to be used interchangeably in the notes; however, as case law demonstrates, there has been established a clear distinction between the two terms. I am not a citizen subject to United States jurisdiction; I am a Sovereign Citizen with all the unalienable Rights, Authority and pre-eminence of a Sovereign. "In this country, sovereignty resides with the people." Julliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421 (1883). See also, Bellei v. Rusk, D.C. (1969), 296 F.Supp 1247.
  19. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, clearly understand the difference between a "state Citizen" and a "United States citizen; I am not a federal "U.S. citizen" nor a "citizen of the United States": "We have in our political system, a government of each of the several states and a government of the United States. Each is distinct from the other and has citizens of its own." U.S. v. Cruikshank, 92 US 542 (1876). See also 8 U.S.C.A 1502. "The persons declared to be citizens are ‘…all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.’ Bill of Rights, Amendment 14. The evident meaning of these last words is, not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States (jurisdiction thereof, not jurisdictions thereof), but completely subject. …, but who has not been naturalized or taxed or recognized as a citizen, either by the United States of by the State, is not a citizen of the United States within the meaning of the 1st section of the 14th Article of Amendment of the Constitution. Elk v. Wilkins, 112 US 94. (1884). Furthermore, "The privileges and immunities clause of the 14th Amendment protects very few rights because it neither incorporates the Bill of Rights nor protects all rights of individual citizens. Instead this provision protects only those rights peculiar to being a citizen of the federal government. It does not protect those rights which belong to state Citizenship." Jones v. Temmer, 829 F. Supp. 1226 (1993). See also, Hammerstein v. Lyne, W.D.Mo. 1912, 200 F.165.
  20. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, clearly understand that the term "United States" has three different meanings, and must be defined with respect to issues of law and citizenship; "The term ‘United States’ may be used in any one of the following senses: (1) It may merely be the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations or, (2) It may designate the territory over which the United States is sovereign or, (3) It may be the collective names of the several states which are united by and under the Constitution.." Hooven & Allison v. Evatt, 324 US 652, 65 S.Ct. 870, 880, Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Edition, p. 1703. According to the United States Code, the ''United States'' means: (A) a Federal corporation; (B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or (C) an instrumentality of the United States, 28 U.S.C.A. 3002 (15), Judiciary and Judicial Procedure. Furthermore, "It is quite clear, then, that there is a citizenship of the United States and a citizenship of a State, which are distinct from each other and which depend upon different characteristics or circumstances in the individual." Slaughter House Cases, 83 U.S. 36, 16 Wall. 36 (1872).
  21. In common usage, the term "person" does not include the sovereign and statutes employing it will ordinarily not be construed to do so." United States v. United Mine Workers, 330 U.S. 258 (1946), 1 U.S.C. § 1, note 6.

    "There can be no limitation on the power of the people of the United States (of America). By their authority the State Constitutions were made and by their authority the Constitution for the United States (of America) was established and they had the power to change or abolish state Constitutions or to make them yield to the general Government and treaties by their authority." Hauenstein v. Lynham 100 US 483 (1879).

    "Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts." Yick Wo v. Hopkins and Woo Lee v. Hopkins 118 US 356 (1886).

    "The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no duty to the state or to his neighbors to divulge his business, or to open his doors to an investigation, so far as it may tend to criminate him. He owes no such duty to the state, since he receives nothing therefrom, beyond the protection of his life and property. His rights are such as existed by the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the state, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution." Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43 (1906)

    The Michigan Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court concurred and made it perfectly clear that the "word ‘person’ is ordinarily construed to exclude the sovereign" and that for a sovereign to be bound by statute the sovereign must be "specifically" named. Will v. Michigan state Police 491 U.S. 58, 105 L.Ed.2nd 45 (1989).

    "Acts of Congress" are not applicable to "sovereigns" in the 50 states. "… include any act of Congress locally applicable to and in force in the District of Columbia, in Puerto Rico, in a territory or in an insular possession. 18 U.S.C.A. Rule 54 C, said Title being, Crimes and Criminal Procedures, enacted into Positive Law.

    "It is a familiar doctrine of the common law, that the sovereign cannot be sued in his own courts without consent." The Siren v. United State, 74 U.S. 152 (1868)

    "No action can be taken against a sovereign in the non-constitutional courts of either the United states or the state courts and any such action is considered the crime of Barratry. Barratry is an offense at common law." State v. Batson, 17 S.E. 2d 511, 512, 513.

    "The Common Law is absolutely distinguishable from the Roman or Civil Law systems." People v. Ballard 155 NYS 2d 59.

    "It will be admitted on all hands with the exception of the powers surrendered by the Constitution of the United States, the people of the several States are unconditionally and absolutely sovereign within their respective territories." Additionally, "It had been said by eminent judges that no man was a citizen of the United States except he was a citizen of on of the state composing the Union… those residing in the District of Columbia or in the territories, though within the United States were not citizens." Ohio L. Ins. & T. Co. v. Debolt, 16 How. 428 (1853)

    "The canon of construction which teaches that legislation of congress, unless contrary intent appears, is meant to apply only within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States." Foley Brothers v. Filardo, 336 U.S. 281, 9 L ed 364 (1948).

    "In exercising this power, Congress is not subject to the same constitutional limitations, as when it is legislating for the United States." Hooven and Allisons Co. v. Evatt, 324, U.S. 652. Congress, within it’s "ten square miles" since 1933 operates in a style of private equity or merchant law, similar to that of (Roman-Ecclesiastical) Civil Law, where private law (contracted opinions and beliefs for profit and gain promoted by non-governmental special interest groups and lobbyists) is now set forth as public policy by "law-makers" (see Erie Railroad v. Thompkins, 304 U.S. 64 (1938)) and applies only to the District of Columbia and all of it’s Federal territories.

    "The Constitution is the supreme law of the land ordained and established by the people. All legislation must conform to the principles it lays down. All other provisions of the Constitution sedulously framed to define and limit the power of the United States and preserve powers of the states, could be broken down, the independence of the States obliterated and the United States converted into a central form of government exercising uncontrolled police power throughout the union superceding all local control over local concerns." United States v. Butler, 297 U.S. 1, 56 S.Ct. 312, 102 A.L.R. 914 (1935)

    The sovereignty of the State essential to its proper functioning under the Federal Constitution cannot be surrendered, it cannot be taken away by any form of legislation. "The affirmation of such proposition would obliterate the distinction between the delegated powers of the federal Government and those reserve to the states and to their citizens." United States v. Constantine, 296 U.S. 287 (1935).

    The successful war for American Independence was formally brought to a close in the year 1783 with the signing of the Treaty of Peace. Article 1 of the Treaty clearly states that King George of England "acknowledges the United States viz the thirteen colonies are free, sovereign and independent States… and relinquishes all claims to the government, property, and territorial rights of the same…"

    "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Galitians 5:1

  22. Through the study of history, I, Michael-Hans, Winter, have discovered that the de jure Vermont state, a Constitutional Republic, was laid dormant as of the 1st of the "Reconstruction Acts" on 2 March 1867 and with the demise of the of Vermont’s Council of Electors in 1869, a new "constitution" was forced upon her, completing the creation of a federal overlay, a district known as the State of Vermont, a de facto, "a state within a state", Howard v. Sinking Fund of Louisville, 344 U.S. 624 (1952); see also 31 CFR 51.2 & 52.2.
  23. However, the de jure state of Vermont existed as an independent Republic prior to joining the Union in 1793 and, as Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution for the United States of America guarantees to each state a Republican Form of Government, I, Michael-Hans, Winter, will recognize the de jure Vermont Republic, a de jure, sovereign state , a constitutional form of government still in existence; I, do not recognize the de facto State of Vermont. Said State is a de facto corporation operating as a territory of the District of Columbia. "All states whatever are corporations" Chisholm v. Georgia, 2 Dall U.S. 419, 468 (1793). Henceforth, only allowing 14th Amendment U.S. citizens (or citizens of the United States) to vote and hold office therein. Black’s Law dictionary defines de facto government as, "One that maintains itself by a display of force against the will of the rightful legal government and is successful, at least temporarily, in overturning the institutions of the rightful legal government by setting up its own in lieu thereof. Worthham v. Walker, 133 Tex. 255, 128 S.W.2d. 1138, 1145. " Black’s Law Dicitonary, 4th Edition, page 5044.
  24. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, hereby declare that any and all contract(s) or agreement(s) which may be claimed to exist between myself, in propria persona, and the de facto STATE OF VERMONT to be null and void, as any such contract/agreement was not entered into knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally and constitutes constructive fraud.
  25. Pursuant to 8 U.S.C.A. §§ 1481 & 1483, I, Michael-Hans, Winter, hereby do with full disclosure, knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally:
  1. Make a formal declaration of allegiance to the Constitutional Republic of Vermont (see 8 U.S.C.A 1502), a de jure state foreign to the state of the forum, the United States, "The United States government is a foreign corporation with respect to the state." In re Merriam's Estate, 36 NE 505 (1894), 1441 S.CT. 1973, 41 L.Ed. 287 and thereby securing the right to vote as a qualified elector in this state of the Union;
  2. Decline and reject dual citizenship (state/Federal), Federal being the incorporated "10 square miles," U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 8 Clause 17 & District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871, or any federal overlying areas within a state.
  3. Declare that I am not a "resident of", (see Amendment 14 U.S.C.A § 1, Note 25) an "inhabitant of" or "domiciled within" the United States, nor any federal jurisdiction thereof. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, am not "ward of ", a "franchisee of", "subject of", "property of", "chattel of", or "subject to the jurisdiction of" the state of the forum of any United States territory, corporate State, corporate County, or corporate City, Municipal body politics, territory or enclave created under the primary authority of Art. I, Section. 8, Clause. 17 and Art. IV, Section. 3, Clause 2 of the Constitution for the united States of America and I am not subject to any private-civil legislation created by or under the jurisdiction of any employees, officers, or agents deriving their authority therefrom. I am not a "federal personnel," officers and employees of the Government of the United States , see 5 U.S.C. 552a, Chapter 5 (a) (13). I am not a fictitious entity, corporate or otherwise, collateral or liable to any debt, or an implied Redeemable Instrument, or certificate of equity as employed in commerce nor subject to a jurisdiction under the Uniform Commercial Code. I am not a "fiduciary agent", "trustee", "franchisee", "transferee", "benefactor", "stockholder" "donor" or "contributor" with respect to funds of the United States General Trust Fund, nor any constructive or implied (charitable) trust or fund created by the state of the forum of any United States territory, corporate State, corporate County, or corporate City, or Municipal body politics. I am not an "individual" nor "actor" subject to any agencies (28 U.S.C. 3002(15)), nor held by their administrative codes, regulations, treaties, or agreements repugnant to the organic constitution of the united States of America or to the Constitutional Republic of Vermont, or laws contrary to those of our Creator.
  1. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, enter into a covenant first and foremost with my Creator, the Almighty provider of liberty and justice, the Supreme Ruler, God, and
  2. secondly, I, Michael-Hans, Winter enter into a common, natural-law covenant with a state foreign to the United States for the protection of my absolute rights and property, see Article 1, Declaration of Rights, Vermont Constitution, 1793.
  1. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, declare that I am first and foremost a Vermont state Citizen, a (North-) American National and not a "U.S." federal citizen, yet a denizen with respect to the Federal government and it’s respective territories. See United States ex rel. Zdunic v. Uhl, C.C.A.N.Y. 137 F.2d 858, and Vermont Constitution, Chapter 2, section 39, 1793.
  2. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, hereby reserve all of my common-law natural rights to not be compelled to perform under any contract/agreement into which I did not enter into knowingly, voluntarily, intentionally with full disclosure, and further-more, I do not accept the liability associated with the compelled benefit(s) of any unrevealed, undisclosed contract(s) or commercial agreement(s) and I reject any assumptions/implications to any such benefits, (see Jewett v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue, (1982) 455 US 302, 311; 71 L.Ed. 170, 176; 102 S.Ct. 1082.) I am a Citizen under the 1787 Constitution as amended and ratified in 1791, and precedent decisions of Article III Justice Courts of Law, (not an Article I ecclesiastical, legislative or administrative court) and I have Rights, which are unalienable that were endowed by my Creator, secured and protected by the original articles of the Bill of Rights, the Republic of Vermont’s Declaration of Rights and the Constitution for the united States of America. I do not waive any of my absolute Rights, nor will I at any time.
  3. NOTE: This affidavit is not intended for national expatriation, it is intended for renunciation, repudiation, rejection of implied domestic Federal citizenship and is to claim exclusive lawful non-domestic State citizenship/denizenship.


  4. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, with my presence being in the township of Ripton, in the de jure County of Addison of the Republic of Vermont, but not of the body politic and corporate (see In re Merriam's Estate, 36 NE 505 (1894), 1441 S.CT. 1973, 41 L.Ed. 287) of either, was born into the American Republic and not in the District of Columbia, nor any of its territories. I, hereby remove any unqualified signature and power of attorney on the following documents, but not limited to said birth certificate and the application for a social security number for the following reasons listed below, and any and all documents or instruments of incorporation implying 14th Amendment citizenship.
  5. Unknowingly, having apparently been made ward of the corporate state and Federal government without my permission, as my above referenced biological parents were misled into applying for and obtaining a birth certificate (also known as a certificate in equity) and subsequently filed with the agency, Bureau of Vital Statistics (42 U.S.C.A. §242k(h),(see Sheppard-Townsend Maternity Act of 1921 via the Children’s Bureau creating a federal birth certificate registration area, Public Law 97, 67th Congress, Session 1, Chapter 135, and, although eventually repealed in 1928, parts of it have been found in other legislative acts, namely in Title V of the Social Security Act of 1935; the membership to the International Monetary Fund and World Bank under the Bretton Woods Agreement Act (22USC 286-286k-2), entered into after the suspension of Americas true monetary standard of a gold backed currency (House Joint Resolution 192, 73rd Congress, Session I, June 5, 1933) in 1933, a period of economic turmoil, described as an emergency, that benefited only the extremely wealthy investment bankers of the world.
  6. Having been unknowingly misled as a teenager (minority) by persons of authority, government agencies, public institutions, government sponsored advertisements and IRS-instructed tax-paying businesses, who have adamantly stated that I had to have a social security number in order to work and carry on in life, this "strawman," incorporated numerical entity employed a social security number so that I could enjoy the fruits of my labor. This was executed without any knowledge of the facts that this unilateral, adhesive contract binding to a private charitable trust, unknowingly made me a beneficiary/contributor to the national debt created by the de facto federal corporate government, Washington D.C., ("10 square miles") and equally liable for its repayment. (see paragraphs 12 through 19)
  7. Now of my own right, not under any legal disability or mental deficiency, or the power or threat of another, or guardianship, I, Michael-Hans, Winter, do hereby negate, rescind, revoke, remove, ab initio, all [unqualified] signatures, endorsement or subscriptions on any instruments and any express or implied power of attorney therewith. I have never entered nor made any "knowing(ly), intelligent acts done with sufficient awareness." Brady v. U.S. 397 U.S. 742, (1969) with regards to such instruments, and all such instruments are null and void, in fact or assumption, signed either by me or anyone acting as my agent, or legal guardian, or any unsigned constructive instruments, as it pertains to documents implying 14th Amendment citizenship, which were created by the federal United States government (10 square miles, also known as the District of Columbia) see District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871, acting in its questionable insular capacity, are hereby, ab initio, null and void.
  8. Cujus est commodum ejus debet esse incommodum - "He who receives the benefit should also bear the disadvantage" Common Law Maxim

    "One who avails himself of the benefits conferred by a statute cannot deny its validity." Buck v. Kuykendall, 267 U.S. 307, 316 (1924).

    "A benefit is not conferred on one who is unwilling to receive it; that is to say, no one can be compelled to accept a benefit against his consent." Justinian Code

    "When it is said that a valuable consideration for a promise may consist in a benefit to the promiser, ‘benefit’ means that the promiser has in return for his promise has acquired some legal right to which he would not otherwise have been entitled." Woolum v. Sizemore, 102 S.W. 323, 3224.

    "They cannot claim the benefit of statutes and afterwards assail their validity. There is no sanctity in such claim of Constitutional right as prevents its being waived as any other claim of right may be waived." Wall v. Parrot Silver and Copper Co., 244 U.S. 407 (1916); St. Louis Malleable Casting Co. v. Prendergart Construction Co., 260 U.S. 469 (1922).

  9. Due to the use of various elements of fraud and misrepresentation under tactics of threat, duress, coercion, mistake, bankruptcy, by the aforementioned agencies/entities, I, Michael-Hans, Winter, hereby cancel, repudiate and refuse to accept any benefits, franchises and or privileges attached to the above mentioned (Roman) civil law "socialist agreements," and agencies (see President Andrew Johnson’s veto messages to the Reconstruction Acts, Messages and Paper of the Presidents, 1789-1887, Government Printing Office, Volume 6, 398-405, "… expending public monies for asylum beyond the 10 square miles…", p. 398) not limited to the birth certificate and/or social security number. Nor will I, in the future, accept any benefits or privileges under threat, duress or coercion, with or without my full knowledge, that remain outside the confines of the Constitution for the united States of America. The requirement to pay a license fee involves the exercise of a privilege. I am exercising no commercially taxable privilege, but rather, Rights, secured in the organic Constitution for the united States of America and the Bill of Rights. "A State may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a Right granted by the federal Constitution.. Thus, it may not extract a license tax for the privilege of carrying on interstate commerce." Murdock v Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105, 113 (1942); Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 491 (1966). "The claim and exercise of a Constitutional right cannot be converted into a crime." Miller v. U.S. 230 F 2d 486 (1956).
  10. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, hereby declare that any and all contracts or agreements which may be claimed to exist between myself, in persona propria, and the de facto DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA (see Article I, Section 8 clause 17 of the Constitution for the united States of America) and the STATE OF VERMONT to be null and void, as any such contract/agreement was not entered into knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally and constitutes constructive fraud.
  11. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, do not live within the federal overlay area as created within every sovereign State in reference to the Buck Act 1940, also known as the Public Salary Tax Act, 4 U.S.C. 105-113, nor do I fall within the jurisdiction thereof "and nothing in this Constitution shall be construed as to prejudice any claims of the United States, or of any particular State." Constitution for the United States of America, Article 4, Section 3, Clause 2.
  12. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, make void for lack of good faith and notice on the part of the United States government, any and all [unqualified] signatures implying 14th Amendment citizenship.
  13. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, do hereby remove, annul, withdraw, abrogate, recant, negate, delete, nullify, expunge, cancel, repudiate, disavow, renounce, and relinquish all [unqualified] and powers of attorney, in fact or assumption, with or without my consent and/or knowledge, as it pertains to all private property, real or personal, obtained in the past, present or future. I am the sole and absolute possessor/owner and possess absolute unqualified full right and allodial title to any and all such property. I have no effectively connected business within the United States government and its inflationary laws of equity, nor do I practice interstate commerce between the United States government and any federal state including the STATE OF VERMONT’S "… body politic and corporate." In re Merriam's Estate, 36 NE 505 (1894), 1441 S.CT. 1973, 41 L.Ed. 287.
  14. Any and all contracts or agreements which would tend to indicate, or presume, that I, Michael-Hans, Winter, am a ‘U.S. citizen"; a citizen of the Federal government, are hereby declared to be null and void. I have never been a "United States citizen" as defined in 26 C.F.R. 1.1-1(c). I, Michael-Hans, Winter, hereby declare that any such contract/agreement was not entered into knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally with or without full disclosure, and therefore was the result of Constructive Fraud (Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Ed. p. 314; 4th Ed. p. 789, Fraud, constructive).
  15. This instrument replaces, cancels, repudiates the prior instruments that are filed with the United States Government and any and all other governmental entities anywhere which may execute on said prior instrument(s), and this document shall become a permanent part of the records of the United States government and the State of Vermont principles.
  16. As practiced by the Congress for the United States of America, I, Michael-Hans, Winter, also reserve the right to revise and extend any and all remarks made in this document of Affidavit: Declaration of Sovereignty, Removal of Unqualified Signatures and Powers of Attorney.
  17. I, Michael-Hans, Winter, declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the united States of America and to the best of my knowledge, that the foregoing document is true and correct, and further, sayeth naught.


Subscribed, sealed and affirmed this________________ day of April in the Year of our Lord, Two-thousand and six, in Addison county, Vermont state, I, Michael-Hans, Winter, hereby affix my own signature with explicit reservation of ALL unalienable rights and without prejudice to ANY of those rights.



Michael-Hans, Winter, Citizen/Principal, suae potestate esse, proceeding jure divino, with Assistance, Special, "Without Prejudice" to any unalienable rights.

As stated in the second Book of Corinthians, Chapter 13, Verse 1: "In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."
