An obscure little law passed quietly in the 1940's known as the Buck Act is the one major piece in the puzzle of understanding how the Federal Governmnet has seemingly usurped most of the State's jurisdiction.
Many of these questions can only be answered after understanding the implications of the Buck Act. The Constitution gives Congress jurisdiction over the limited areas of the District of Columbia, military bases ceded to Congress by States and US territories and posessions. The Buck Act effectively extends this jurisdiction to every square inch of every state that can be called a "federal area" under the Acts provisions, and effectively destroys the sovereign rule of the several states.
Americans who mistakenly elect to be residents of a federal area instead of their sovereign states, have subjected themselves to the arbitrary rule of Congress just like the citizens of Washington DC. Federal areas include any jurisdition created by federal agencies such as postal zones, Social Security disctricts, Federal Reserve regions, "state districts" and others. Each can be thought of as a clear overlay map on top of the United States, that has no regard to the duly-constituted states.
excerpts from the Buck Act:
S.110 (d) The term "State" includes any Territory or posession of the United States.
S.110 (e) The term "Federal area" means any lands or premises held or aquired by or for the use of the United States or any department, establishment, or agency of the United States; and any Federal area, or any part thereof, which is located within the exterior boundaries of any State, shall be deemed to be a Federal area located within such State.
