"When the Government Promises It Won't Abuse Its Powers, It's Lying"

No kidding?

Is this the same government which promised that the SSN was NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION and even printed it, IN ALL CAPS, on the first cards issued?[1]

And then, less than thirty years later, reneged on that "promise".

"In 1961, Congress authorized the IRS to use the Social Security number--a nine-digit number issued by the Social Security Administration--as a taxpayer identification number. The Social Security number is issued to American citizens, permanent residents and working residents--it is needed to seek legal employment in the United States or to receive Social Security benefits." [Emphasis added]

Why anyone on this planet would continue to believe anything passing the lips of any government AGENT is beyond comprehension!

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me a million times shame on me.

"The Social Security number is issued to American citizens, permanent residents and working residents--it is needed to seek legal employment in the United States or to receive Social Security benefits." [Emphasis added]

Notice that it's apparently not "needed" to seek employment, it is only "needed" to seek legal employment. So, what is "legal employment"? Basically, it means employment that is "legally recognized" by THEIR CORPORATE LAW. A person with a social security number is "legally recognized" as what? As a "taxpayer", i.e. "one who is subject to a tax". Have we not seen, elsewhere, that the social security number is a "taxpayer identification number"? http://strike-the-root.com/taxation-is-robbery

So, why would a free man, i.e. one who is not a member of that voluntary association, want his employment "legally recognized" by that corporation?

Answer: He wouldn't!! The social security number is a charagma, a badge of servitude!

"Badges, to god-damned hell with badges! We have no badges. In fact, we don't need badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges, you god-damned cabrón and ching' tu madre! Come out from that shit-hole of yours. I have to speak to you."

That quote was from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, written by B. Traven, the pen name of a German novelist, whose real name, nationality, date and place of birth and details of biography are all subject to dispute. How appropriate is that?

Those who are not numbered do not "legally" exist...they are considered "nonpersons" or "unpersons"[1], that is to say, they are not "persons".

Homo vocabulum est naturate; persona juris civilis – Man is a term of nature; person of civil law. ~ Bouvier’s Law Dictionary (1914), “Maxim,” page 2136

PERSON. A man considered according to the rank he holds in society, with all the rights to which the place he holds entitles him, and the duties which it imposes. 1 Bouv. Inst. no. 137. ~ A Dictionary of Law (c.1891), page 892 [Emphasis added]

It's all about "entitlements" and "duties".

Que sentit commodum, sentire debet et onus. He who derives a benefit from a thing, ought to feel the disadvantages attending it. 2 Bouv. Inst. n. 1433.

If the Social Security bill could have passed the House, Social Security individuals could have received one $250 check in addition to their regular benefits. Because Social Security won't have a cost-of-living boost, or COLA, in 2011, lawmakers wanted to throw seniors, veterans as well as the handicapped a $250 bone. The GOP prevailed in killing the bill on the grounds that the nation could not afford adding another $14 billion to the deficit.
