Things you were taught to believe that were never true:
By: Jeff Ganaposki
❏ Government was instituted to protect the people ❏ Government can tax incomes because the U.S. constitution was amended ❏ You cannot live nor work in the USA without a Social Security account and number ❏ Everyone born in the USA are U.S. citizens at birth ❏ You were endowed with civil and political rights / liberties ❏ America is a democracy (or constitutionally limited indirect democracy) ❏ Americans elect their leaders ...............
__ Governments were instituted to secure rights, not protect all
people. All government can do is prosecute deliberate injury after the
fact. You cannot sue the government for failure to protect. __ No
government instituted to secure rights is delegated power to tax rights.
Any income tax is an excise tax levied upon a revenue taxable
privilege, where the amount of tax is determined by the income derived. __ There is no law compelling participation in FICA, nor punishing non-participation in FICA.
__ The 13th amendment prohibits involuntary servitude in the United
States and territories subject to THEIR jurisdiction. Since citizenship
comes with mandatory civic duties, no one can be “born a citizen” within
the USA. Only those outside of the USA in Federal jurisdiction may be
“born a citizen.” __ Civil and political liberties / rights are
privileges granted by government. Natural and personal liberty are
endowments from our Creator. __ Americans are promised a republican
form of government. However the servant government is organized as a
constitutionally limited indirect democracy to serve the sovereign
people. __ Since government is servant of the sovereign people, it
is not their leader. However, those who are subjects of the government
must be obedient to it and the elected officers / public servants.
