A wise old man once said: "Son, if you
wanna get ahead in this world, never work for another man as long as
you live." Although Lee says that's sound advice, he adds it's
imperative to go one gigantic step farther by never working or
selling your life's blood into the "corporation as long as you
But before understanding how Lee, a
homebuilder and land developer by trade who lives near Spokane,
Washington, figured out how to buck the system, he says first
it's vitally important to comprehend that each and every America
volunteers his servitude to the system from birth, albeit
volunteering without full knowledge or consent.
And just as a citizen impliedly and
implicitly volunteers, according to Lee, he has the same ability
to release the chains and bondage by following a method he is
perfecting, Lee admits, however, his method is no "overnight
fix" but is difficult, time consuming and more like a total
lifestyle makeover instead of a quick fixer-up course in being a
so-called free man.
Although there are many patriot
movements taking place all over the country, Lee says he has
taken the best from each, while adding more detailed legal steps
and procedures, in order to help others effectively work and
live outside the jurisdiction carved out by the corporate
government, rights he claims fundamentally protected by the
"I've been a hard working man all my
life and when you go through life accumulating things and then
don't know how to protect yourself, it makes you stop and
think," said Lee this week in an extended conversation from his
home in Spokane, where he now lives free from the bondage of
what he calls a controlled and manipulated corporate-driven
"When I finally realized I had been
lied to and technically I was not a free man but a slave, I
decided to do something about it. I also realized that the rich
men of the world really want to capture all the living beings
and take 50 percent of their labor for their own benefit. The
system is designed to control and dominate the people and I
didn't want any part of it."
Lee said it's important for a person
deciding to leave the system to understand what's going on in
the world as well as fully understand what a person's birth
right really means and what he can become if he truly believes
freedom is more important than being a slave to the government.
"We are created by pour creator to be
free with inalienable rights as long as we do not harm our
neighbor. There are really only two basic rules to follow, being
no trespass and love thy neighbor as thy self," said Lee. "In
Isaiah 45, God created good and evil. But in my case I realized
a long time ago being honest wasn't good enough.
"I realized I had to gain more
knowledge to protect against evil and to protect myself from not
becoming evil myself. This is our major goal in life and once
this is mastered it is our responsibility to teach our young the
same beliefs in order to stop evil from being passed on from
generation to generation."
With these high moral standards to
attain, Lee said out to free himself from the jurisdiction of
being under the thumb of the U.S. government, starting out by
first getting judicial acknowledgement from the court he was no
longing volunteering his services to the system.
Lee said the process of confronting
the system head on needs to be carefully thought and worded, as
it is necessary to make it clear to the court system the real
purpose for taking up the court's time.
He added that the real purpose for
filing the initial court papers isn't adversarial like most
court proceedings, but merely a legal venture into admitting
errors were made in entering the corporate-driven government
system and that these errors need correcting inorder to get out.
"This distinction is important because
the law says it can correct errors but not a mistake," said Lee,
adding the first thing he wanted the court to acknowledge was
that he wanted to be known as simply Terry Lee instead of the
name listed on his official birth certificate.
"I presented a five page brief and 50
pages of supporting evidence proving that I can carry a name of
my choosing as long as I don't use it fraudulently and, of
course, it's not necessary to have your name legally changed.
The judge agreed and I still carry the court order with me,
which now replaces any type of ID card or driver's license
issued by the state."
Lee said the court order recognizing
the right to carry a name of his choosing, free from the state
recognized name, is only the first step in a myriad of legal
maneuvers needed in order to break the contract with the state,
a contract binding most men to a life of servitude and
