If Social Security is not insurance or a Trust Fund, then what is it?
It is the theft of Socialism. Social Security is Socialism. Socialism is theft. Theft is a sin.
There was never a promise to pay benefits.
"Rights" can only come from responsibilities. You won't understand this yet, but those who accept public benefits cannot have rights.
Federal funds are not available to ordinary persons. Only indigents can qualify to receive federal benefits. It is highly unlikely that you ever qualified for a Social Security Card. Section 205(c)(2)(B)(i) of the Social Security Act allows government to assign Social Security Numbers to Applicants for benefits financed with government funds. Unless you need federal benefits, Social Security numbers are not available to you. You cannot qualify for a number. That's right! SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS ARE NOT AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO CAN PROVIDE FOR THEMSELVES. If you can still provide for yourself, or if your family or church or state can support you, it would be fraud to apply for federal benefits.
Let me repeat this essential fact is several ways, until you understand: The Application for an SS Card (the SS5 Form) is a Form limited to a very specific purpose. It is only for indigents who need federal funds. People who can provide for themselves cannot be indigent. Social Security numbers cannot be issued to anyone until they apply for federal benefits. The government cannot know who is destitute; they must wait for Applicants desperate enough to apply for federal funds. It must be voluntary. Social Security has no Trust Fund; it is solely a handout that is limited to government Wards. Only Socialists can qualify for a number (As you will find out herein, Socialists are not even eligible for citizenship). ONLY THOSE WHO CANNOT SUPPORT THEMSELVES AND ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT SOCIALISM AND WILLING TO SWEAR SO WITH A PERJURY OATH ON A PERMANENT IRREVOCABLE RECORD, CAN QUALIFY TO RECEIVE A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.
To remain constitutional, only Wards of the government can receive benefits. This is a vow of poverty. You exchanged your rights to all future wages for the false promise of future benefits. You did so voluntarily. I'll discuss labor rights and poverty vows and taxable wages in other Chapters.
According to the legal definition of "Tacit Procuration," you grant them the Power of Attorney if you expect them to provide for you. You asked them to provide for you - to steal for you. Government does not and cannot create wealth, it must tax in order to give. Government cannot provide benefits unless it takes them from someone else. "Socialism" is theft of your neighbor's money. Your new master will take money from your neighbors, against their will and over their objections. These civil servants will eventually resort to the force of guns, on your behalf, to seize property from any neighbor who stubbornly and repeatedly refuses to hand over whatever is demanded. It is theft. They call it "distraint." It is not insurance. Proverbs 1:10-19 gives us advice about those who entrap the innocent to fill their house with plunder.
In Matt 20:25-27 and Mark 10:42-43 and Luke 22:25-27 Yahusha tells us to not have dominion over others, but to serve. Believers SERVE. Believers DON'T LORD over those who are not under them. Not by force, not by vote, not by hiring a servant and then delegating to the servant an authority to steal - an authority that you don't have. Again: Believers don't have dominion over their neighbors. You cannot tax your neighbors to fund your retirement.
Since there is no Trust Fund (nor can there be one) - Only by the deepest commitment to covetousness can you force others to pay for your retirement (or pay your doctor bills, or pay to educate your children). You are coveting your neighbors' goods. You are forcing your dominion over those who are not subject to your authority, contrary to Messiah's command.
Conversely, if your bank account and property can be seized to pay for your neighbor's retirement (or doctor bills or tuition), then you must have somehow lost your right to keep `your' property or money. What do you suppose that you signed to waive any right to keep `your' property?
Have you become "surety?" The "security" in Social Security is social. Look up "social insurance" in a law dictionary. You have become "surety" for your neighbor. Proverbs 11:15 "He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure." Also: Proverbs 17:18
Only Wards of the government (card carrying Socialists) can receive the benefits of National Socialism.
Social Security is not a Trust Fund or insurance, it is an excise tax on the benefits of a limited citizenship (including the government granted privilege of earning wages). This tax revenue goes into the general fund. Authority for this taxation comes from the Buck Act, not the Internal Revenue Code. It is presumed, but not required, that Congress will appropriate funds each year for maintenance of the government Wards. The Supreme Court ruled in 1980 that Social Security benefits are not based on a fixed contract and therefore can change or be eliminated at any time. Fleming v. Nestor, 80 SCt 1367.
In the 1891 naturalization case of Mr. Sauer, 81 Federal Reporter 358 the court held that Mr. Sauer (although an industrious, law abiding man) could not become a citizen because he claimed to be a Socialist. "Socialists" could not become citizens, and they still cannot. I have another Chapter that cites every court case where people were forced to get Social Security numbers. Every case is a welfare Applicant. Social Security Numbers are only for Socialists. "Socialists" cannot have rights. Read Appendix C and prove to yourself that they have changed their citizenship and are not protected by the first eight Amendments to your U.S. Constitution (Hague case) and do not have the right to a trial by jury (Colegate case). If you want to loose your birthright, just fill out a Form claiming socialist benefits. If you think you still have a right to a trial by jury, read Appendix F.
A Believer cannot be a Socialist. Believers are not to associate with freeloaders, according to 2nd Thessalonians 3:6-14:
2nd Thessalonians 3:6 (NIV): "In the name of the ahusha HaMasheiach, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and does not live according to the teaching you received from us.
3:7 "For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you,
3:8 "nor did we eat anyone's food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you.
3:9 "We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to make ourselves a model for you to follow.
3:10 "For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: 'If a man will not work, he shall not eat.'
I want to interject a note here: this isn't a snobbish threat to starve the poor, it is a fundamental Biblical principle. In the same sentence where Yah condemned us to die, he condemned us to work for food. That's right! To acknowledge Socialism is to deny Yah's authority. Genesis 3:19 (KJV): "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." The Socialists that want you to provide not only their food but also health care, deny Yahuah's authority to sentence us to hardships.
3:11 "We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies.
3:12 "Such people we command and urge in the Lord Yahusha Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat.
3:13 "And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right.
3:14 "If anyone does not obey our instruction in this letter, take special note of him. Do not associate with him, in order that he may feel ashamed."
That the freeloader may feel ashamed. I've been told that I am too sarcastic just because I quote scripture .
Do not confuse voluntary Charity with forced Socialism. Believers are often in need of Charity, yet cannot accept Socialism.
Does the support the notion that Socialism can provide for Belivers? Let's take a closer look:
If a Believer cannot be a Socialist, then a Believern cannot have an ID Card available only to Socialists.
Theodore Roosevelt: "The first requisite of a citizen in this Republic of ours, is that he shall be able and willing to pull his own weight."
As further proof that Socialists have never had rights, in my Appendix C read where the Articles of Confederation extended the rights of citizenship to inhabitants with the exceptions of paupers and vagabonds and fugitives. A vagrant is not a vagabond. Even Messiah was homeless - Matt (8:20, Luke 9:58). A "vagabond" is a homeless freeloader. A "pauper" is a person that must be supported at public expense. Social Security partakers are supported at public expense, therefore they cannot have the rights of citizens anymore than a fugitive would have.
The English word "stigma" comes from the Greek and, in English, means "a mark of shame" or "a brand of disgrace." The third six in 666 is the Greek stigma (666 = chi-xi-stigma). The Mark is not necessarily a tattoo or implant. Do you have a permanent mark of shame?
Conclusions so far: There is no Social Security Trust Fund, there is no insurance, and there is no pension. It is plunder. It is pure orthodox Socialism. Socialists are not and cannot become citizens. Socialists cannot have rights. They never could and still can't. Believers cannot be Socialists. Believers cannot have Socialist ID. Did your government school teach you this?
Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto in 1848. Public schools is the 10th Plank. As I said earlier: Those who accept public benefits cannot have rights. "Rights" can only come from responsibilities. You have no right to force others to pay your children's tuition. Hillary's village will raise the children of those who forfeit their rights to their own children. Even the U.S. Supreme Court in Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 US 390, concluded: "it is the natural duty of the parent to give his children education suitable to their station in life ..."
The U.S. Supreme Court in Plyler v. Doe, 457 US 202, concluded:
A U.S. Congressman in the 1840's - Robert Dale Owen (later known as the father of American Socialism) believed that the Christian faith hindered man's evolution. An Owen associate wrote:
"The great object was to get rid of Christianity and to convert our churches into halls of science ... the plan was not to make open attacks upon religion - although we might belabor the clergy and bring them into contempt where we could ... but to establish a system of state - we said national - schools ... from which all religion would be excluded and to which all parents were to be compelled by law to send their children."
These views influenced John Dewey at the Columbia Teacher's College, and by 1900, a Socialist system of compulsory schools (which exclude religion) became a reality.
The seven-headed scarlet Beast is a Socialist confederation of Beast powers that raised up from the sea. The sea symbolizes multitudes of people (Rev 17:5). "Seas of people" (democracies) demand Socialist benefits. These people received not the love of the truth that they might be saved. They want to be taken care of, but not by God. They won't accept the responsibility to take care of themselves, or suffer God's trials. They fabricated a counterfeit image of God to provide for them and protect them. They get their rights from their god that they created. They expect you to worship their counterfeit image of God. In their Courts, your rights come from the god they created.
Abraham Lincoln, September 11, 1858: "Accustomed to trampling on the rights of others, you have lost the genius of your own independence and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises among you."
