I keep hearing folks go on and on about the common law. Oh we are common law marshals, and judges and grand juries and yada, yada, yada. Sorry folks but the common law does not mean what you think it means.
Common LawThe ancient law of England based upon societal customs and recognized and enforced by the judgments and decrees of the courts. The general body of statutes and case law that governed England and the American colonies prior to the American Revolution.
The principles and rules of action, embodied in case law rather than legislative enactments, applicable to the government and protection of persons and property that derive their authority from the community customs and traditions that evolved over the centuries as interpreted by judicial tribunals.
The common law is just that which the court has decided before on a case based on the same set of facts. Thus if you are a citizen in a registered motor vehicle, then common law is not going to save you.
The common law is the common law of the subjects, it is the customs and cases from subjects past long before you were born.
There is NO common law for free men, because you need a society and courts in order for there to be a common law.
Free men use natural law, subjects use common law.
I would suggest a couple of links here, and then followed by extensive research on YOUR part for a better understanding.
