Zoe said, "I never signed my kid over to anyone."
I know, I thought so, too, just like you. And then I learned that my parents had given me to the state when they obtained a birth certificate, SSAN, and made other contracts on my behalf even before I could assess the damage. And I did the same to my children. Guess what? If you don't have a social, you will not get into school. Public school is for the state's kids. But that grasp via parens patriae has extended to private school also.
As Ohfor07 said, we have made MANY contracts that we likely have not realized the significance of. We experience the consequences of binding ourselves to a system that we really don't understand. We are essentially riding in fictitious pirate ships of Admiralty and dare not rebel or we will be forced to 'walk the plank'. How can we complain about the govt. when we have basically made ourselves wards and them our guardians?
We also use their Federal Reserve Notes - and pass them around. Would you pass around a promissory note as tender for doing trade and conducting business? Here, let me give you my mortgage....LOL
We entered the world of commerce as CHATTEL and then scream and rant and rave about what they do to us. The answer is simple and yet complex---however, it is altogether mandatory:
"Come out of her My People"
This is the focus of my thought and prayer life - and how to accomplish it. As I enter this time of the fall feasts and Yom Kippur, I sense a foreboding and yet perhaps see doors opening one by one as I walk out this life by faith and through obedience to His Word.
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

but I am willing to still fight for the right to
be a card carrying American."
My heart's desire is to be able to live outside the social security contract and discontinue being a ward of the state and chattel. Just because my parents sold me into bondage into a socialist contract, I would prefer to be a Common Law Freeman (er, woman) just like our forefathers in this country were.
I don't want their New World Socialist Order where I have to go to them and be on their dole. I want to find a way to be FREE.
I personally don't consider being a Card-Carrying American.... American at all. When did we begin to believe this lie? This is not what my gr-gr-grandparents emigrated here for...
1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
That is a beautiful depiction of the mystery of the reward for those who love Him. And what does it mean to love Him?
Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.
Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
Song of Solomon 2:4
He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.
And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
1 John 5:2
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
1 John 5:3
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
2 John 1:6
And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
It is clear that the book (Old Testament AND New Testament---same message) has the STANDARD for what is required to be blessed---not even our Constitutional documents are sufficient in this hour, even though they do contain some of the precepts of the Law since the Common Law was based on the Law of Moses (see Alfred the Great, king of England).
To be blessed and set-apart in this hour, one must have ears to hear and eyes to see true TRUTH, and must be willing to obey His commands/laws/statutes/ordinances. IMO, it is the ONLY path to life and blessing and security/safety. Period.
11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
