From Raw Story:
An increasing number of Indiana residents are declaring themselves “sovereign citizens” and personally seceding from the United States, says a report from ABC channel 6 in Indianapolis.
By doing so, residents contend that they no longer have to pay taxes, claiming their homes as embassies and using identification cards that show them as diplomats, 6News’ Rafael Sanchez reported.
Indiana authorities call such proclamations both illegitimate and illegal. About 10 people every month ask the state to put a seal on a document so that they can claim freedom from taxes.
When I read this story I had this clip from Family Guy stuck in my head:
It didn’t end very well for Peter Griffin in that episode either, as he found the United States declaring war upon him and his house surrounded by the military. Maybe that’s what should happen to a few of these morons also.
