It was created by a private group of "people" in conjunction with private agreements made with the British crown. Unless you are claiming nexus with George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison et al who attended and participated in the secret constitutional convention held during the Spring and Summer of 1787, then you have no standing to be ranked equal with their status, and therefore no voice in their private affairs of state.
This is a theory, and it may well be true. But I think if it were, I would not be finding the loop holes in the legislation that I am finding. It looks more likely to me that we are simply having our ignorance played against us.
Along another line of thought could be for one to make the claim as to being one of "the People", and let the court tell you explicitly that you are not.
Although, I don't believe that is likely to happen.
