The namesake "Project421" is a nod to Article IV, Section 2 Clause 1 of the Federal Constitution, aka the "Comity Clause."
The concept of comity is to prevent citizens from becoming residents in the states.
In fact, this clause has been referred to by historians and framers alike, as "the foundation upon which the entire constitution was built."
Why is the the comity clause important, and why should you take the time to learn about it? Because if you were born in one of the several states, and you are a resident, then you are not able to access the entirety of the provisions of the Constitution. Your access to its protections is limited. And due to a multi-generational effort by political elite intended to deceive, you are not alone as a resident. Very few Americans enjoy the right of comity in Article IV, yet a great majority of those born here likely qualify for it. If you don't know what Comity is, how can you know if you have waived that right? Most American's have waived the right to Comity without even realizing it.
To begin with, it is important to understand why this clause was considered to be so important. And who enforces it?
Alexander Hamilton answered this question in The Federalist #80, stating that the federal courts would be the forum to enforce the rights of comity. The reason this clause is enforced in the judiciary, and not another branch of government is as brilliant as it is simply stated:
"It may be esteemed the basis of the Union, that "the citizens of each State shall be entitled to all the privileges and immunities of citizens of the several States." And if it be a just principle that every government ought to possess the means of executing its own provisions by its own authority, it will follow, that in order to the inviolable maintenance of that equality of privileges and immunities to which the citizens of the Union will be entitled, the national judiciary ought to preside in all cases in which one State or its citizens are opposed to another State or its citizens. To secure the full effect of so fundamental a provision against all evasion and subterfuge, it is necessary that its construction should be committed to that tribunal which, having no local attachments, will be likely to be impartial between the different States and their citizens, and which, owing its official existence to the Union, will never be likely to feel any bias inauspicious to the principles on which it is founded."
Everyone's political and citizenship status is unique to that individual, but the rules of citizenship are uniform. Project421 strives to encourage as many Americans as possible to research their own personal circumstances, and to determine for themselves if they might have the political standing to be a state citizen. Second, to personally determine if state citizenship of the 4th Article, or Federal Citizenship of the 14th Amendment, is the most beneficial for them. This is a personal choice, both are valid legally. However, state citizenship is limited to a certain class of people, owing specific allegiance to a state.
For state citizens the game is simple, government wants you to waive your rights to comity, and submit yourself as a resident subject to their authority.
By your dedicating a relatively small amount of time to study this subject, you will quickly learn what is best for you and your situation. If you find you want to make a change in your political status, Project421 hopes to point you to the tools, and more importantly inspire asking the right personal questions, to make those political changes necessary to best suit securing your and your family's rights.
But Is There Really A Difference Between State Citizenship and 14th Amendment Federal Citizenship?
Yes, a big difference. And the best source for a description is the Supreme Court. Here is what the Court said about rights secured under the 14th Amendment in the landmark case of Jones v Temmer:
"The privileges and immunities clause of the Fourteenth Amendment protects very few rights because it neither incorporates any of the Bill of Rights nor protects all rights of individual citizens. See Slaughter-House Cases, 83 U.S. (16 Wall.) 36, 21 L. Ed. 394 (1873). Instead, this provision protects only those rights peculiar to being a citizen of the federal government; it does not protect those rights which relate to state citizenship."

We are at a very unique time in American history, a time when it is critical for the citizens of the several states to regain their authority and hold government accountable according the provisions provided for by the framers. For a reasonably educated state citizen with intermediate pro-se legal skills, it is a target rich environment of codes and statutes that do not violate the rights of US Citizens, but do violate the rights reserved for State citizens. The problem is, it has been some time since a state citizen has been to court on these issues, for what you will learn are obvious reasons. People are unaware of these rights to such a degree they don't even realize rights have been waived.
But to be very clear, there is no evidence anyone, who was born within the boundaries of one of the several states in the last 100 years, and has taken on the political status of US Citizenship, has successfully gained government acknowledgment of returning to the status of a 4th Article state citizen without US citizenship. The agencies and government authorities that have induced you to waive your rights maintain that once you have waive these rights, you can never regain them. Remedy for this will require a court decision, and a court decision is the active goal of this project.
As you begin to learn what state citizenship is, and how this class of citizen was protected by the framers differently than Congress protected 14th Amendment federal citizens, it will likely become clear to you why this type of case has not happened before. More than several generations ago, citizenship as distinguished from being a resident was common knowledge, but today hardly a single American is even aware of the concept of state citizenship or that a concept of comity among the states even exists as a secured right for citizens. Project421 wants you to be a part of changing this by learning what nearly every student in America had learned by the end of the 8th grade, up until about 100 years ago that is.
So there you have it, a brief introduction to Project421, we will be bringing you a series dedicated to improving your knowledge on this subject. Next up is a history of the country from the point of view of a state citizen, knowing the history of the states from this perspective is critical to fully understanding state citizenship.
For people who treasure freedom. Love, support and defend the Constitution, State citizenship is an exciting subject to study and we know you enjoy being exposed to this information. For those willing to invest the time and personal sacrifice to both aver, and successfully defend your status as a citizen of the 4th Article, the potential rewards are quite profound.
Be sure to spread the word about Project421, support the project if you have the means, and be a part of the solution. Comment, subscribe, get involved. Its a big idea, and you are participate in it either way, we just want to give you the tools to make a choice.
The tools to choose how you participate in this grand experiment in freedom, will you choose your path as a Citizen protected by the Bill of Rights, or as a Resident?
