Your Withdrawal of Consent

Many of us, either in whole or in part, have withdrawn our consent from the current ruling regime. Up till now, however, I’ve never seen a form to document such a thing. Below you will find one. (Also available as a PDF.) I am under no impression that any ruling regime will acknowledge such a form, but I think it’s a healthy exercise to specify what you consent to and what you do not.

I am under no impression that any ruling regime will acknowledge such a form, but I think it’s a healthy exercise to specify what you consent to and what you do not.

The form should be self-explanatory.

10 thoughts on “Your Withdrawal of Consent”

  1. If someone puts anything other than 100% “of adult voters…”, aren’t they violating the principle of voluntary association (i.e. by claiming the right to bind someone else, perhaps against their will)?

  2. With all due respect, this document is full of negatives–and furthermore, I never gave Consent in the first place so I have no need to withdraw.
    I find more value in the Covenant of Unanimous Consent. It is short, positive, upbeat and provides a foundation for individuals, groups or communities to BUILD a peaceful and prosperous future upon.
    What *IS* the ABSOLUTE BARE MINIMUM that Voluntary Groups of any size–two people or more–need to agree upon, in order to live together peacefully and productively?
    Interested. Details here:

  3. I’d change “resident, residence” etc with “dwell, dwelling” and related. “Resident” is their legally defined term. Where fedgov law references Natural Law rights they generally use “dwell” and derivatives.
    Alternately, you could add a clause that states any use of words is as defined by me, and any resemblance to legal terms is not to be construed as reference to those terms.
    I’ve done this before, sort of. My advice would be to not go on the offensive, rather just drop out and wait. If/when anyone comes knocking you only have to ask for proof of political jurisdiction, i.e. prove I am one of your defined “citizens” and that this happened in full compliance with your 13th amendment.
    Dennis Wilson is on to it: nobody has actually “consented,” except for anyone who has taken an oath, either for public office or the military. And even then, it’s possible to challenge jurisdiction. The applicable legal tenet is “fraud vitiates everything,” not revealing all terms and conditions of this “citizenship” constitutes fraud.

  4. ‘No contract has been accepted’ is as good a response as any to respond to mad people who think they can legitimately make you act in the way they believe you should (because they wear special hats or have flags). Sending them advance notification of your refusal to believe in their cult religious delusions is tantamount to be dealing with their supposed authority as though in some way you consider it is real. So I suggest: don’t do it.
