These whackos have been around awhile. Do you remember the freemen from Montana, back in the nineties? They considered themselves "sovreign citizens."

Sovereign citizens are extreme libertarians. They believe that statutory laws do not apply to them. They only answer to the common law, as applied by "common law" courts, that is, not state or federal courts, but courts without judges or lawyers with juries consisting of other sovereign citizens.

While both probably would self-define as Conservatives, I think Tea Partiers still believe that they can affect government in some way. Sovereign Citizens seem to have given up on the concept of change through participation in the political process and instead opted for some bizarre form of internal secession.

Fox Race-Baits Over "Sovereign Citizen" Story

The information in this story appears correct, although the author has been known for a serious lapse in judgment in the past, which to my knowledge has not been corrected. (He thinks Charles Johnson is a racist. One cannot get further from the truth than that.)
