    Has anyone actually had success with it?

    They’re so close to realizing it’s all fantasy, but I have a sneaking suspicion that they’ll find a way to avoid that conclusion.

      Like that flat earth movie. They kept doing experiments and repeatedly proved the earth wasn’t flat and would immediately come up with an excuse on why the experiment was faulty. I guess they’ll keep going until they have to declare bankruptcy and blame the system.

        I like trying to explain to them that we live in a fractal universe and spheres just happen to be the most likely shape to form using as many $15 words as I can remember. Not because it works. Nothing does with this lot. It just makes them stop talking because they dont want to admit that they cant understand half of the words Im using.

        I saw that and was honestly impressed by how dilligently they set up and conducted the experiment. That was their mistake tho.

      Bear in mind, the ones that do realize this will probably slink away quietly, rather than come back to tell everyone.

      Banks will have had success with 1099a. I don’t volunteer to try to explain to sovereign citizens why though.

        So banks can do it because they hold all the money in the world, but regular everyday citizens can’t do it because they do NOT have money to back their claim.That’s my guess. Am I right?

          Regular citizens can do it but they actually need to be owed money first and then they can only use it to settle that debt with the person who owes them money.
