    I have no idea what you are talking about. You are way too abstract in your communication. END OF TRANSMISSION!

    I just provided proof of you stating that the 13th amendment gave Congress the power to create SocSec.

    Taxation for unconstitutional government programs IS slavery.

    The social contract is not a myth. You just wrote about the social contract (U.S. Constitution) you have with your government. Yes, the government has violated the social contract by not acting within the confines of the Constitution. The question then is why the government is still in power after violating its contract with the people.

    The US Constitution is a legal contract between the states and the federal government. It isn't a social contract since it has no bearing on society. As for the answer to your question, the answer lies in the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson wrote, "accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed."

    You're right -- its outright fiction, a story used to convince people that everyone owes them something for no reason other than the simple virtue of their living here.

    i told you it was a typo. I meant the 16 amendment giving congress to levy income taxes. SS is a tax on your income. That's what I was talking about. Is that all? I hope so. I have bigger fish to fry.

    John Paine described the constitution as a covernant among the founders and people of the United States. I believe it was from "The Rights Of Man". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Covenant_(historical)
