Re: State Taxes for Americans born abroad?

What makes up in particular the federation of the united states of America? Its member states.
I appreciate your usage of the lower case letter used in "united". This shows that there is a difference in grammar usage, i.e. lower case "u" for a past tense verb, as opposed to upper case/capitalized "U" which indicated a proper noun as in United States.

A citizen of a member state is thus automatically also a citizen of the federation.
I am finding more cases where syntax and grammar are not used in practice, and this is the reason why state citizens are misidentifying themselves as US citizens.

And by constitutional rights (Article IV) a citizen of a member state of the U.S.A. has the same rights and obligations a citizen of any other member state.
Written on the Declaration of Independence (1776), the past tense verb "united" is not capitalized (http://constitutionus.com/images_dec...on_engrav.html). This past tense verb is not the same as the entity U.S. or US or UNITED STATES or USA or UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 created the US entity (see above more variants) was passed by congress (https://archive.org/details/District...ganicActOf1871).

It is the same with Switzerland which is also a federation (sometimes also called confederation as back then confederation meant what federation means today).
I recently discovered that John A. Sutter (Swiss father/German mother) arrived in San Francisco before the "gold rush", which was "found" on his property that eventually became Sacramento. His visage remains on the Native Sons Building at 414 Mason Street, San Francisco (https://www.emporis.com/buildings/20...ancisco-ca-usa). There is definite Swiss influence in California, and California is the where most legislation has a trial run before other States adopt the same/similar legislation.

But we have one level more. Here we are first and foremost are a citizen of a town (was important in the past as welfare was handed out by your home town), then a citizen of state/canton where the town is (was important in the past as you were enlisted in the cantons army), and finally because the canton is a member of the Swiss confederation, also a citizen of Switzerland.
This is very helpful information. It appears that being a citizen of Switzerland is the same as being a citizen of United States. In my case, I was issued my fourth Aufenthaltsbewilligung (B), so I just completed my third year. The questions that come to mind: Do I establish my citizenship of Affoltern a.A. upon completing the five years? Does this also apply to citizenship of Zurich canton?

As I continue my studies into the private side, I would be interested in not getting into the same situation here in Switzerland as I find myself with United States. My partner, like the average Swiss, is nearly taxed to death with fees and the cost of living. Any feedback you provide is most appreciated.

So, as long a California does not secede form the federation your California state citizenship does not change anything. No, in the contrary, it further signify your status a citizen of the federation of the united states of America. Or in short, as a U.S. citizen.
Interestingly, there's a Yes California separatist group arranged an "embassy" in Moscow:

California state is not the same as STATE OF CALIFORNIA, which is a franchise for UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This explains why there is a Franchise Tax Board: https://www.ftb.ca.gov. US citizens are charged a franchise tax for using the copyrighted symbols, such as CA or zip codes, etc, and not correcting the political status using the Minnesota Rule 220. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/court_rul...type=gp&id=220

While California state Constitution (1849) predates the District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871, which incorporated the UNITED STATES.
This is significant because if one does not assert one's rights, then one has no rights. The US Public Education is one side of this story. The other side of this story is to take responsibility and to investigate for oneself via private study. This is missing in many people's daily practice because there are bills to "pay" and there are so many distractions to get hung up on.

Now, what you have to find is a town which does NOT belong to one of the member states of the U.S.A.
You hit on an important aspect for which town to visit for state citizen rights. There are constitutionally recognized public officials, whose offices are located within Sacramento county: http://admin.cdn.sos.ca.gov/ca-roste...l-officers.pdf Essentially, all other STATE OF CALIFORNIA positions were created by the 1879 Constitution.

Then you have to declare yourself a citizen of that town and officially renounce any citizenship with any member state, or any town of a member state of the U.S.A.
Declaring oneself as a state citizen which is not recognized by the US Franchise is challenging. I find also identifying what the specifics for not being a US citizen as critical as declaring my state citizenship. For instance the use of capitis diminutio maxima (http://thelawdictionary.org/capitis-diminutio/) is not accpetable and that I would not be privately responsible for such notices/statements/documents.

This means you must become a citizen of Washington D.C. as this is the only town which does not belong to any of the member states. Because it does not belong to any member state there is also no representation in congress and Senate. People living in in D.C. can be taxed based on local rules and legislation. But citizen of D.C. can not be taxed aboard as they are not citizen of the federation.
I have heard from others state that recording my necessary documents at the national county recorder office is the place to go, which is either DC or Maryland. However, the District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 is in the heart of the beast. In my private studies Washington, District of Columbia is the incorporated area that accounts for all the the UNITED STATES and those born, living and working within these boundaries are the true US citizens. Other true US citizens include Federal and State employees and US Postal Service employees.

(PS: I think the above post is total mind . Which means it could be mind rape. Luckily, this is no crime in any country on this planet. )
Replying to this post slowed down my process to explain it with some clarity, I hope. As a Californian, I'm open to more mind raping. Better a mind rape, than a bloody and broken arse.
