Going to court.
You can easily represent yourself with a little knowledge. It is scary, it is demeaning, it can beempowering, and it will be work. There are many places to learn about the court process, myfavorites (and I’m a total amateur with no formal legal training). First all cases start off with acomplaint. The complaint states the facts, the evidence, an ‘injury’ and a demand for ‘damages’.We never go to court because were good people and dislike airing our business in court if we canavoid it. However sometimes we have to defend against someone else’s’ claim against us. ThePlaintiff always wins, the defendant always looses. If the defendant goes free what did he ‘win’,if the Plaintiff loses what did it cost him? We want to become the Plaintiff, so how do we do that?The Plaintiff is the Creditor and the Defendant is the Debtor. In Common Law the Defendant isinnocent till proven guilty, in Admiralty
(the current system-the Defendant is guilty until proveninnocent). We file a counterclaim. Now we are the counterPlaintiff and they are thecounterDefendant. That feels better. Now we have Power and the judge has to serve us(supposedly). Next there are rules of court. First off there are 4 different forms of LAW listed inthe u.S. Constitution-Common Law, Equity Law, Admiralty Law, and Maritime Law
. Whichform do you as the Plaintiff wish to declare?
In Common Law
no statutes and codes,regulations, and legislated laws apply and the jury is the tribunal who decides the outcome. Onlyan injured party can sue you. If the People of the STATE OF TEXAS are suing you, that is afiction (the STATE OF TEXAS only exists in someone’s mind) and as such can they be put onthe stand to be cross-examined? As you can see, our system is not functioning as it originally wasintended and is set up to proceed in Equity where the Judge can arbitrarily decide any way hechooses and you are bound by his decisions. Admiralty only applies to the Sea obviously andonly in times of WAR. Are we at war? Yes, we have been under emergency war powers sincethe time of Abe Lincoln. There is always a declared War,-War on Drugs, War on Terror, War onPoverty, etc. How about getting an attorney? An attorney
does not have to do what you tell himand can actually go against your wishes because once you sign up you are legally declared a wardof the court, a child incapable of representing yourself, unable to make decisions for yourself.They really really want to assign you a ‘free’ public defender so they can keep you from makingany of those unpleasant, crucial demands for justice. You will not be able to learn enough to puton a lengthy trial of examining witness, etc but you can make all of your points in your writingand what I do is prepare everything I wish to say in a prepared statement to read off of. Bring adigital voice recorder and keep it in your pocket, you can’t imagine how handy it is later to beable to ‘transcribe’ what was said, and also bring a 3
party to witness the trial and later swear anaffidavit stating they heard “….” in court that day (from your transcripts and recording to refreshtheir memory) otherwise you have no ‘evidence’. Without it you will not be able to remember what was said. Often they will not allow you to record courtroom actions but as a sovereign Iclaim it is my right to record, however I have never had the digital recorder not go through themetal detector guardians. If I get all my points into the record in my writing then not much needsto be added in open court anyway. This system works great. All your points get entered and youcan learn to say ‘I object’, ‘I don’t’ consent’ and ‘I don’t understand’ to anything stated and itwill get into the record. Next, lets look at places to study the law for a better chance, 1. BillThornton’s site: http://1215.org/lawnotes/index.html, where you can spend an enormous amountof time, I highly recommend getting his video package for $70 here:http://1215.org/seminar/denniswhipple.htm and then to see how the Equity court will operateJurisdictionary does a great job at giving a study course at home for representing yourself http://www.jurisdictionary.com/ Peter Graves has done a great service here. So you have a claimagainst you and you have been notified by the court and or opposition party. You have 21 days to
