If you are British, you still have 300 million fellow loyal subjects all still loyal to the British Monarch. We aren't really free, but we are conned to thinking we are. All our taxes go to support the British Crown. This treaty was actually signed in 1783 that America will continue to operate as a Corporation for the British Monarch and all of his heirs.
"In monarchical governments, by subject is meant one who owes
permanent allegiance to the monarch." Bouvier's Law Dictionary,
"Constitutional Law. One that owes allegiance to a sovereign
and is governed by his laws. The natives of Great Britain are
subjects of the British government. Men in free governments are
subjects as well as citizens; as citizens they enjoy rights and
franchises; as subjects they are bound to obey the laws. The term
is little used, in this sense, in countries enjoying a republican
form of government." Swiss Nat. Ins. Co. v. Miller, 267 U.S. 42,
45 S. Ct. 213, 214, 69 L.Ed. 504. Blacks fifth Ed.
By these definitions we are still subject to the British Crown. I.e. Queen Elizabeth is still our Queen, whether we recognize her or not. As Americans, we believe we are Citizens according to the definition applied by Rome:
"The term citizen was used in Rome to indicate the possession
of private civil rights, including those accruing under the Roman
family and inheritance law and the Roman contract and property law.
All other subjects were peregrines. But in the beginning of the 3d
century the distinction was abolished and all subjects were
citizens; 1 sel. Essays in Anglo-Amer. L. H. 578." Bouvier's Law
