It's not what I call myself, but I guess generally people of similar
mind to myself here in Canada are called "Freeman on the land".

I just refer to myself as 'a sovereign' because that has an actual
dictionary definition both in common English and in English Law.

In other words, "Freeman on the land" is open to interpretation, where
"sovereign" is not, it is a very old word, with a well defined meaning.
