What does who shall not be an inhabitant of that state in which he shall be chosen mean?

For weeks, this question has been bothering me. In performing additional research on the question, I began to assume that the answer must be obvious and that I was just missing the point. I soon realized I was looking at a double negative and needed to consider the beginning of the clause. While not being an English Major, I finally did realize that I was confused by the use of negative terms in the sentence. You English gurus should pipe in here."No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen."The opening words state: "No person shall ...". This is the first negative. Then, "who shall NOT, when elected, be an inhabitant..." is the second negative.We might state the double negatives in today's English this way:"You can NOT be a senator if:1) You are NOT at least 30 years old AND2) You have NOT been a US citizen for at least 9 years AND3) your are NOT living in the state you are running in."Put in the affirmative: You MUST be at least 30, been a citizen for at least 9 years AND be an inhabitant of that state.Hope this helps.Michael

It means that a US senator must live in the state from which they are elected. The restriction is easy to fulfill since one can move into the state during the campaign. One just has to live in the state by election day.

What is a political state?

The political State is the body politic of an area or region. In the United States of America it would be the citizens of the Untied States by virtue of their participation in its system of political franchise. This is contrasted by the separate and distinct natures of the United States of America and the United States. The United States of America, the union of the several states, a constitutional republic. Whereas the United States, a representative democracy, the political union of the fifty States. The differences are that it, the United States of America, recognizes unalienable rights, English common law, allodial title and the free inhabitant. Whereas the United States has legislated privileges, civil law, equity title and citizens of the State. The difference amounts to balance of power between the State and the individual. Under the State a in citizen is not seen as a true individual and is employed for the benefit of the whole and has the right to participate as part of the whole but has no right to act contrary to the needs of the whole. Whereas a free inhabitant has no obligation to any except under due course of law and likewise no other party has any obligation to that individual. As an illustration a citizen or the child thereof has both the right and an obligation to attend public school. Whereas a free inhabitant would be responsible for their own education and cannot be forced to participate in public education and actually is not entitled to such an education since the free inhabitant does not pay direct taxes of any kind. The citizen has no rights to resist a properly legislated law or an officer of law. The free inhabitant has no right to trespass upon the rights of others as is not answerable to any other than by virtue of an action or suit at law, i.e. criminal case or lawsuit.
