COMMON FACTS ABOUT SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS
Your federal government is very vague in answering
most questions about Social Security Numbers.
If you persist in your inquiry, which will take dozens of letters,
the Government will openly and honestly tell you a few certain facts about
Social Security numbers:
1. It is
a permanent irrevocable status. Some
bureaucrats claim that it is a contract, while the higher level
authorities in the Social Security Administration say it is not a
contract, but a status. Go to any law
library and look up `status' in any law dictionary. You cannot change your own status once you've signed up,
anymore than one who enlists in the military can change his own status.
2. It is
up to the bank, employer, school or stockbroker to determine whether or
not they will discriminate against someone who fails to give a number.
The government has no policy on this.
3. Many state driver's license applications request a
SSN. Strange language in section 205(c)(2)(C)(i) of the Social Security
Act allows federal states "... for the purpose of
establishing the identification of individuals affected by such law, and
may require any individual who is or appears to be so affected to furnish
to such State...or agency thereof having administrative responsibility for
the law involved..." his SSN. Yet,
The Social Security Administration before 1996 would not issue Social
Security Numbers for the purpose of getting a driver's license.
If you applied for a Social Security Number and stated that your
purpose for applying is to qualify for a driver license, you would get a
denial notice form SSA-L676. If
you want to do more research, try to find out how a state driver’s
license became a federal benefit in 1996.
There is another reason to believe that SSNs are not required for
state driver licenses. SSA
Publication No. 05-10002 states: “You should not use your Social
Security card as an identification card.
However, several other government agencies are permitted by law to
use Social Security numbers, but there is no law either authorizing or
prohibiting their use.”
Also read Leahy v. District of Columbia, 833 F.2d 1046 where
Leahy refused, based on religious objections, to give his SSN on an
application for a driver's license. Religious
objections are powerful, because the first amendment acknowledges the free
exercise of religion. In the
Leahy case, as in others, only government "...interests of the
highest order can overcome legitimate claims to the free exercise of
4. According to a federal report to a Congressional
Subcommittee on Social Security some people do not have Social Security
Numbers. You can order one
free copy of this report from U.S. General Accounting Office, P.O. Box
37050, Washington, DC 20013. The
title of the report is “SOCIAL
SECURITY, Government and Commercial Use of the Social Security Number Is
Widespread” Report GAO/HEHS-99-28.
On the bottom of page 3 you will read:
individuals do not have an SSN either because they do not want one or
because they are ineligible to receive one.”
Later, the same paragraph continues:
only noncitizens to whom SSA has issued SSNs have been those with one of
two valid nonwork reasons for needing a number.
That is, the federal government requires applicants for benefits or
services under certain federal programs to have an SSN, and states require
applicants for driver’s licenses to have SSNs.”
Now re-read this cleverly written TRUE statement,
while keeping in mind that SSNs have never been required for work purposes
either, not even for citizens, and the law requiring SSNs for driver
licenses refers only to federal states.
to the IRS, an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) is
available to those who cannot qualify for a Social Security Number. The application form for the ITIN (Form W-7) in the general
instructions, says than anyone eligible for employment in the US is
eligible for a Social Security Number and cannot apply for an ITIN.
This seems to confirm that Employment really is a federal benefit,
rather than a private contract. Employment, as that term is used in the tax code, is a
taxable government granted privilege and is available only to those who
waive their right to sell their labor.
6. Once you get a number by signing up for socialist
benefits financed in whole or in part from Federal funds, guess what
happens next. The Social
Title VIII section 801 requires you to pay Social Security AND
OTHER TAXES. This is also
word-for-word in Section 3101(a) of the Internal Revenue Code:
addition to other taxes, there is hereby imposed on the income of every
individual a tax equal to the following percentages of the wages...”
You agreed to partake of the communal fund in
exchange for contributions to the communal fund.
You agreed to contribute whatever they ask.
This allows congress to tax you at any rate they want to.
They can increase your tax to 100%, without a constitutional
amendment, by a simple majority vote.
You no longer have a right to your wages, you only have a
government granted privilege of keeping what they allow you to keep.
The Buck Act
authorizes taxation of anyone with a Social Security Number,
even though this is not referenced within the Internal Revenue Code
either. More about this,
Aside: This is what you agreed to. Courts cannot impair the obligation of your permanent
irrevocable contract. It
doesn’t matter that the 16th Amendment
wasn’t properly ratified.
It doesn’t matter that the tax laws would only apply to federal
employees in federal territories. It
doesn’t matter that wages would otherwise not be taxable.
There are many people who believe that the tax laws have not made
them liable for an income tax.
Since you volunteered to pay whatever they will
demand, they can use your future labor as collateral for the national
who already have a SSN must disclose it on forms or suffer a fine.
Those who do not have a SSN can file a 1040 form without a number,
and the IRS will assign a Taxpayer ID number.
These numbers are assigned by the IRS Entity Section in
Philadelphia, and are not Social Security Numbers, and begin with the
8. In the Legislative History of Public Law 99-514
, which is available in your local law library, in the discussion of
Internal Revenue Code section 6109(e), shows that congress never required
religious objectors to begin using Social Security Numbers.
Also see Revenue Ruling 85-61, 1985-1 CB355
have copies of letters from Social Security Officials which state:
“If you do
not wish your employer to use your SSN, you should request your employer
to enter the phrase “religious objector” in the space provided for a
SSN when your employer reports your wages and taxes.”
(dated June 6, 1981, signed by the Commissioner himself)
should request present and future employers to enter the phrase,
“religious objector” in the space provided for a social security
number when they report your wages and taxes.
You may show this letter to your employer(s) to show that your
request is valid.” (Aug 23 1979)
this advice was changed to “Workers who do not wish to use their Social
Security numbers for religious or other reasons should get in touch with
the Internal Revenue Service office in their area to explain their
position and receive advice on how to proceed. We do not have the authority to require an employer to
provide or deny employment or services to anyone who refuses to disclose
his or her number. This is a
matter between the individual and the employer.”
knowledge, there is no law which states employment can be denied if the
employee does not have a Social Security number.”
(dated Sep 23 1988)

work in the United States.” (dated Jul 19, 1993)
not aware of any Federal law or regulation that requires an employer to
obtain a Social Security number before hiring an employee or for
employment purposes.” (dated
April 23, 1997)
there is no law requiring an individual to have a Social Security number

AND NOW AS OF SEPTEMBER 1999, in Sutton v.
Providence, US Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, Case Number 99-55050
, the Defendant is required by law to obtain Plaintiff’s social security
number. The employer is not
subject to discrimination laws IF accommodating an employee’s religious
beliefs would require the employer to violate federal law.
I spotted many errors in the court decision, and I hope he appeals
to the Supreme Court. But a
precedent has been set. It
seems straightforward to me that THE BEAST’S INTENT IS TO CAUSETH ALL TO
RECEIVE A MARK at least to sell labor.
The patent number on the back of the social security
card (patent number 1,904,650) refers to a carefully worded technique
involving a manifold web with permanently retained record and transfer
strips. WHY WOULD SIMPLE
CARDS NEED THEIR OWN PATENT? If
you were a suspicious skeptic, you could find legal definitions:
manifold = having many
sides or phases, multiplied
web = a tangle, as the web
of life; a trap, as a spider’s web; to cover with a web; entangle
record = a written account
of an instrument, drawn up under authority of law, by a proper officer,
and designed to remain as a memorial or permanent evidence of the matters
to which it relates
transfer = removal from
one place to another, conveyance of property from one owner to another; to
convey to another as property; an act of the law by which title to
property is conveyed from one person to another
The patent class is 462/2, which also includes the
“federal drug testing custody and control form (CCF)”
