Are you a Federal Employee?Submitted by juliusbragg on Wed, 03/03/2010 - 20:09
If you work at Kelloggs, and they tell you that you must cut your hair...is that illegal?
Think about it. Dont you have the RIGHT to have long hair?, then how can they diminish that right?
The answer is by Contract. Remember, the constitution (13th Amendment) only states that IN-VOLUNTARY servitude is forbidden, it says nothing about Voluntary. America is SO FREE, that we actually have the RIGHT to contract away our rights.
This happens ALL THE TIME. A marriage license is a contract, that removes the RIGHT of marriage, and replaces with the 'privilege' of Marriage, in exchange, the state gives you some sort of consideration, tax break, insurance break, etc.
Well, Just like if you worked at Kellooggs, working for the Federal Government has its downside as well. When you become federal personnel, you diminish your rights. You no longer have the right to free speech, freedom of religion, right to bear arms, right to privacy, right to be secure in your possessions, and so on. Ask ANY congressman if he can carry a gun to work, or if the government can search him or his house without a warrant, or probable cause, or an infantryman if he can have scripture on his gear, or if he can rally a group of troops and assemble and speak poorly of the United States.
We all know, or at least I hope we all know, that the Constitution applies to the states, and NOT federal zones or territories such as Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, or the District of Columbia.
This brings me to my point.
Are you Federal Personnel?
- (13) the term "Federal personnel" means officers and employees
of the Government of the United States, members of the uniformed
services (including members of the Reserve Components),
individuals entitled to receive immediate or deferred retirement
benefits under any retirement program of the Government of the
United States (including survivor benefits).
Guess what Social Security is?
Guess what number they use for the draft?
Guess what number they use to Direct Tax?
Guess what number they use for Social Programs, that are benefits and must be payed for?
- A voluntary acceptance of the benefit of a transaction is
equivalent to a consent to all the obligations arising from it, so
far as the facts are known, or ought to be known, to the person
If you have a SS number, then you ARE federal Personnel, and you have limited Rights! They can lay a direct Income Tax on you, they can summons you for Draft, they can require that you have a license to travel, they can require you have a license to marry.
Is SS mandatory? Of course not. If it was, they would assign you a number at birth, instead of you applying for one for your kids.
