As a Free man, I live under a Common Law (commonsense) and natural law jurisdiction only.
1) Do not breach the peace.
2) Do not cause no-one harm.
3) Do not cause no-one loss.
4) Do not use fraud in promises or agreements.
Common law can be described as natural law, the only true law. I do NOT consent to be governed by Act's of Parliament or Statutes.
A statute can be defined as, An act of the legislature as an organized body. Washington v Dowling, 92 Fla 601, 109 So 588.
An act, A thing done or established; a deed or other written instrument evidencing a contract or an obligation. A statute; a bill which has been enacted by the legislature into a law, as distinguished from a bill which is in the form of a law presented to the legislature for enactment. Anne 5 ALR 1422. (Ballantines, 3rd edition, Page 16-17)
legislature. Broadly, any body having legislative power. 49 Am J1st States § 28. (Ballantines, 3rd edition, Page 724)
state. A body politic or society of men united together for the purpose of promoting their mutual safety and advantage by their combined strength, occupying a definite territory, and politically organized under one government. McLaughlin v Poucher, 127 Conn 441, 17 A2d 767.....................a political community of free citizens, occupying a territory of defined boundaries, and organized under a government sanction and limited by a written constitution, and established by the consent of the governed. Coyle v Smith, 221 US 559, 55 L Ed 853, 31 S Ct 688. (Ballantines, 3rd edition, Page 1210)
So, we have (Statute) An act of legislature as an organised body (the state, the Government) who are established by the consent of the governed.
Therefore, we can conclude, a statute is "A legislative rule of society given the force of law by the consent of the governed."
