For Aug 2 2018 Call - Choice of "Citizenhip" is strictly political question

Post by AmericanFamilyPatriot » Thu Aug 02, 2018 10:04 pm

Hi All,

NOTICE:

"Citizenship is a political tie; allegiance is a territorial tenure...The doctrine is, that allegiance cannot be due to two sovereigns; and taking an oath of allegiance to a new, is the strongest evidence of withdrawing allegiance from a previous, sovereign..." - Talbot v. Janson, 3 U.S. 133 (1795)

i.e. constitutional citizenship is a POLITICAL status rather than a CIVIL or STATUTORY status. Courts cannot get into "political matters" [outside of any man or woman causing harm, injury, or loss]

"Citizenship" is a tricky word. Definition of the word depends on the context in which it is being used. You might be interested in looking into the common law principles in reference to 'Conflict of Laws'.

For purpose of federal diversity jurisdiction, "citizenship" and "domicile" are synonymous. [ Hendry v. Masonite Corp., C.A. Miss., 455 F.2d 955 ]
