Declare Your Citizenship

Join the peaceful counter-revolution against the nationalization of citizenship.

In 1997, the de jure (lawful) state of North-Carolina was re-established. A state being a body of people gathered for the protection of their rights and their elected, representative government, this re-establishing was one of both government and the people of the original state, or the body politic -- those who compose the state. This is a change in one's allegiance from that of a national citizen to that of the state and body politic which was allegedly annulled by the Reconstruction Acts. Recognizing unconstitutional acts as nullities, this is the process of reclaiming our status as state citizens.

The North-Carolina American Republic, or NCAR, has been in operation since 1997, and convenes regularly. The basis of this re-establishment is rooted in a legal argument that is supported by irrefutable historical evidence uncovered through years of research. Armed with this knowledge, those who have reclaimed state citizenship can now be an injured party to Reconstruction and the state and individually restrictive effects of national citizenship, taking the matter to court and demanding that the current de facto state of North Carolina prove its lawful chain of title.

In order to claim your rights as a state citizen,
you must first BE one.

A national, U.S. citizen is not injured by Reconstruction. A U.S. citizen is a beneficiary to nationalization and the subsequent federal "benefits", and as Federalist 39 would indicate, the "indefinite supremacy" that nationalized citizenship created. In order to fight for your rights as a state citizen, you must first BE one. Your state citizenship is already yours. You need only claim it.

In law, we as citizens declare our citizenship and allegiance to a particular government or body politic in many different ways. When we vote, for example, this is a declaration that we are clearly, and of our own consent, agreeing that the government receiving our participation is the government which represents us. In order to declare citizenship in your lawful state, you must first make a declaration of citizenship and begin to identify yourself as a state citizen in your activities. This is done here by identifying the re-established, lawful state of North Carolina, the North-Carolina American Republic (NCAR), as YOUR government and body politic.

While we're glad that you have an interest in reclaiming state citizenship, this is not something to be taken lightly. We have found that often those new to the NCAR are either not famiiar with the specific argument we espouse as the foundation for our state's re-establishment, or perhaps we are confused with other arguments with which we are not associated. Often, new citizens may also have the wrong expectations of how our state and body politic operates.

Before taking action, we strongly encourage you to FIRST become well educated on the issues by way of resources such as those offered by organizations like America's Remedy. We would also encourage you to talk to other citizens and officers of the NCAR about what to expect. Attend a local meeting (see our calendar) or educatonal events, if possible. Even once you're ready to become a state citizen, take the time to read and consider carefully the affidavit of citizenship you will receive, as it is your own statement; and what you declare about yourself is very important.

Finally, if you're ready to declare and reclaim your citizenship of the de jure State, the following outlines provide the next steps both for the online method and the offline method, either of which can be used to declare your state citizenship.

Online Method

This method is for those who wish to initiate the process online. Though this method still ultimately must be completed offline, it allows you to complete your prerequisite questionnaire online and then receive all documentation electronically and automatically. For this method, you'll need a printer and both legal and letter size paper for printing your own citizenship packet.

  1. Click here to fill out the prerequisite citizenship questionnaire. Contact an NCAR officer to seek guidance and to obtain a password to access the questionnaire.

  2. At the end of your questionnaire, you will automatically be provided with a link to download and print your citizenship packet. The file will include its own instructions for printing and submitting all paperwork. Packet contents include but are not limited to: brochure and welcome letter, materials on Who We Are and Who We Are Not, action cards, Oaths of Allegiance (North-Carolina and United States of America), Affidavit of Citizenship and Domicile (to be printed in triplicate), Sample Voter Registration Cancellation Letter, ID Card Application, North Carolina Constitution (1776), and a convenient Citizen Contact List (for government officer contact info).

  3. Sign, in triplicate, the Affadavit of Domicile and Citizenship in the presence of citizens of the North-Carolina American Republic. Also sign your oaths.

  4. Turn all copies in to any officer, who will have them signed and sealed by the Chief Magistrate.

  5. Pay your yearly taxes to the de jure State. The current tax rate (in effect as of August 25, 2012) is 5 silver dollars or $125.00 Federal Reserve Notes per household. This amount is payable at the time citizenship is declared, due annually on December 1st, and is required in order to vote or participate in elections.

  6. You may optionally obtain an NCAR ID card, if you like. ID cards are $25.00 and require citizenship.

  7. Vote in the December elections, or run for office if you are inclined.

  8. Cancel your voter's registration in the de facto state. (You have registered to vote in the de jure State in Step 2 above. A citizen can only vote within one body politic.)

  9. Stay active and informed by attending regularly scheduled open sessions of NCAR representatives, officers, and citizens.

Offline Method

This method can be completed entirely offline (without the internet). After initial contact with one of our officers, this method requires basic contact information so that we can mail your packet if so chosen and/or so that we can reach you if needed.

  1. Seek guidance from other NCAR citizens and preferably an NCAR government officer.

  2. Obtain a citizenship packet in person or by mail. If by mail, please provide the officer with name, address, phone. You may also provide your email, if you wish. An action card is a quick and easy way to provide this information. These packets are available by contacting an NCAR government officer and also at regular state meetings and sometimes other events. Packet contents include but are not limited to: brochure and welcome letter, materials on Who We Are and Who We Are Not, action cards, Oaths of Allegiance (North-Carolina and United States of America), Affidavit of Citizenship and Domicile (in triplicate), Sample Voter Registration Cancellation Letter, ID Card Application, North Carolina Constitution (1776), and a convenient Citizen Contact List (for government officer contact info).

  3. Sign, in triplicate, the Affadavit of Domicile and Citizenship in the presence of citizens of the North-Carolina American Republic. Also sign your oaths.

  4. Turn all copies in to any officer, who will have them signed and sealed by the Chief Magistrate.

  5. Pay your yearly taxes to the de jure State. The current tax rate (in effect as of August 25, 2012) is 5 silver dollars or $125.00 Federal Reserve Notes per household. This amount is payable at the time citizenship is declared, due annually on December 1st, and is required in order to vote or participate in elections.

  6. You may optionally obtain an NCAR ID card, if you like. ID cards are $25.00 and require citizenship.

  7. Vote in the December elections, or run for office if you are inclined.

  8. Cancel your voter's registration in the de facto state. (You have registered to vote in the de jure State in Step 2 above. A citizen can only vote within one body politic.)

  9. Stay active and informed by attending regularly scheduled open sessions of NCAR representatives, officers, and citizens.

As the famous maxim states, "Choose your battles wisely." Once you're a lawful state citizen, you will have new eyes with which to perceive injustices, large and small, that saturate the de facto system. The temptation is great to begin fighting all of those all at once. However, not everyone is equipped with the knowledge or intestinal fortitude to stand on the front lines of every battle. Learning what your rights are, and becoming comfortable in exercising them will be an ongoing journey. Rather than being an island, learn to advocate and depend on the support and backing of your fellow citizens. After all, few are the battles that are won without support.

Research these matters for yourself! Strive to understand how to more fully and properly exercise YOUR inalienable rights, as protected by the Constitution. There is a wealth of information at your disposal, both on this website and among the citizens and the officers of the North-Carolina American Republic. Please contact any NCAR government representative for information, or guidance on undertaking any of the above steps.
