Should you give your baby a Social Security Number??




I think you will find this article to be not only interesting but informative for those not wishing to sell their children in slavery. This is from the Washington Examiner and they say...

Don't get your baby a social security number


Some habits become so engrained and routine that the majority of the public never thinks about questioning them. One of these is the use of our so-called "social security" numbers.

Many people today are permeated with a number of false beliefs and notions, such as "my child must be vaccinated by the "hospital authorities" at birth, or "the authorities issue social security number at birth".

These falsehoods are almost subliminally reinforced throughout our lives, but this wide array of falsehoods can be broken Let's start by dismantling one of the principle canards. Government or corporate employees aren't 'authorities', they are servants. Government works for you, and corporations, if you choose to engage them, participate in consensual commerece. Constitutional scholar and Libertarian Party presidential candidate Michael Badnarik covers the concepts of government servants in his easy-to-read book GOOD TO BE KING. Chapter two is available for free online, it's titled RIGHTS VS. PRIVILEGES.

On to the social security number: ssa.gov states

  • Must my child have a Social Security number?
  • No. Getting a Social Security number for your newborn is voluntary. But, it is a good idea to get a number when your child is born. You can apply for a Social Security number for your baby when you apply for your baby’s birth certificate. The state agency that issues birth certificates will share your child’s information with us and we will mail the Social Security card to you. If you wait to apply at a Social Security office, you must show us proof of your child’s U.S. citizenship, age and identity, as well as proof of your own identity. We must verify your child’s birth record, which can add up to 12 weeks to the time it takes to issue a card. To verify a birth certificate, Social Security will contact the office that issued it. We do this verification to prevent people from using fraudulent birth records to obtain Social Security numbers to establish false identities.

Whether or not one chooses later in life to participate in what many privacy advocates regard as a'beast system', is up to their own conscience. A little history of the SS# can be found here:

  • The Social Security Number (SSN) was developed in 1938 to identify workers eligible for government retirement benefits. In 1961, the IRS began using it as a tax identification number and slowly other agencies followed. Since banks and other non-governmental entities can legally turn away customers who refuse to supply a SSN, its use in the private sector is virtually taken for granted in everything from medical insurance to telephone to credit applications.

An interesting topic to delve into is that of the sovereign citizen advocates, who believe that "By Common Law birthright everyone who is born in a State is a Sovereign Citizen of the State in which they were born". That quote is from an excellent treatise on the subject, which can be found here..
