The Constitution for the United States of America
Section 3 - Paragraph 1
Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
This very strict definition of Treason is for the purpose of NOT allowing the Federal Government to persecute those Sovereign Citizens who are attempting to obey the mandate set forth in the Declaration of Independence concerning their right to alter or amend their form of Government to best effect their Safety and Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. - Declaration of Independence
