(FOX 11)
- "I do not need a license or any kind of identification," Trent Goodbaudy can be heard on video telling a police officer.

"Well I'm going to place you under arrest," is the officer's reply.

"No, you need to read that before my rights are violated," Goodbaudy says, handing him a card with an explanation of beliefs on it.

Goodbaudy is what some might call a modern day sovereign citizen, but he doesn't like that title.

"God is my authority, and He is the only sovereign that there is," Goodbaudy said.

The Riverside resident believes there is too much regulation in government, so he's taken his fight to the road. Goodbaudy travels without registration, without plates, without a license and without insurance.

"Insurance is a scam," he said.

Knowing police will pull him over, he's always ready with a camera. Goodbaudy posts all of his run-ins with the law on his YouTube Channel "Freedom from Government." His videos have racked up more than 18 million views.

He's now even selling what he uses in lieu of a license plate. The tag reads "Private" - "Not for commerce use - private mode of travel," and it often gets the attention of police on the road.

"If a cop comes up to me and asks me for my license, registration and insurance, I would ask him if he's planning on using any of those against me in court," Goodbaudy said.

Because he believes in his right to travel freely, he doesn't think he is breaking any laws and doesn't need to prove himself to police either. Goodbaudy isn't the only follower of this growing movement.

There are thousands of people with similar beliefs all across the country who defy what most of us believe is the law and then post their confrontation online. It's impossible to know how many like-minded people there are, however, because there's no centralized leadership.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, who would classify themselves as sovereigns, said the movement has been growing at a fast pace since 2000. Some estimates put numbers at several hundred thousand to half a million people.

"I think there's been a major awakening of consciousness, and I can't explain why I just feel like people are finally coming out of their fog," Goodbaudy said.

You might be surprised to learn Goodbaudy isn't anti-government, he's just sick of government using police as a way to make a buck off him.

"I feel like police have been misinformed to go out and generate revenue off the people they're supposed to be protecting and serving," he said.

He doesn't support building a wall, because that would represent government restricting people's travel.

"We didn't make this land. We came here, just like anybody else would," he said.

Goodbaudy just wants to be free with what he views as his natural born rights.

"As long I'm not doing any harm or causing any property damage, I should be able to do what I want," he said. "It's America. It's supposed to be a free country."

18 U.S. Code § 31 - Definitions

(6)Motor vehicle.— The term “motor vehicle” means every description of carriage or other contrivance propelled or drawn by mechanical power and used for commercial purposes on the highways in the transportation of passengers, passengers and property, or property or cargo. (my emphasis added)

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/31

Merely exercising one's right to locomotion is NOT a commercial activity. One ONLY needs a 'license' if one is engaged in the business of transporting people and/or their goods/cargo/property on public property.

This would be great if we had judges that were required to follow the letter of the law, but we do not, they have all become legislators and will tell you what the law was intended to mean.

The "laws, codes & statutes" are for the corporation and their employees.

It's how any corporation functions.

States and cities are incorporated.

If they can trick you into thinking you are a "driver" then you are obligated to follow the commercial rules of the road....they also abuse the law and court system.... as a revenue generating scheme...

If you want to learn how the law really works... check out Tao of Law

Not for the feint, but it's a bit like looking down a fire hose.....

State Administrative Agencies Regulate Only “Legal Persons.”





The ONLY thing you want to contest is the "style of the case," i.e. the corruption of your Christian appellation into a corporate fiction form.

To argue anything else in the pleading instantly causes you to traverse into the opposition's jurisdiction

You are either a sovereign OR a citizen. You cannot be both.

A Woman Who Drives Without A License - And Tells How

Published on Jun 16, 2017
You want to see courage? In this interview see Jacquie Figg take you through her personal battle with the State of California over whether we have a right to travel ... or not. The fraud perpetrated by the state is exposed by THEIR OWN CODES AND STATUTES. Every Law Enforcement Officer needs to see this, maybe more than once, until they realize the crimes they are committing. If you are law enforcement, your job is not to do what your Watch Commander tells you is "OK", it is to know, obey and uphold THE LAW and tell your Commanders and Supervisors THEY MUST DO THE SAME. The only thing that gives you authority is the oath you swore. When was thew last time you read it? Do you even understand it? If you do not know what is presented in this video, you have been BRAINWASHED. If you think you know differently, then post your reference below this video. I PROMISE YOU the woman in this video can show you the truth. Every day, more and more people are getting FED UP with the lies and violations OUR GOVERNMENT thinks they can perpetrate against the public!
