a huge asset for anyone going to court

This app is an absolute must for anyone going to court for any reason. Without this app you will be in trouble because the definitions the courts use are far different than the definitions the normal everyday Americans use. For example; If you admit you are a US Citizen you think it means because you’re not a Russian Citizen or French Citizen you were born in the United State of America.
What it means to the court is you are an Employee of the Corporate UNITED STATES CORPORATION COMPANY and you have to follow the rules of their employee handbook which are statutes and codes not laws.

Being an American is a much better thing to be. You can not be a US Citizen and an American at the same time - it’s impossible.

If you’re a US Citizen the Constitution doesn’t apply to you. This app is mandatory if you want to win in court.

Law Student Necessity

As a pre-law student I can say this app is an absolute necessity. It makes it so much simpler to learn and understand legal terms, making it much easier to keep up with my professors and readings during class. Having clear, accurate definitions specifically in legal terms at your fingertips is an amazing asset for students. Keep up the amazing work!

Excellent application

This is one of the instances that you need a great app to depend on. I’m glad the creators took the time to address this matter in such a mystic way in order to bring some understanding in such a complex task. Thank you for all you do and keep up the good work.
