Do you know your rights? Do you know your privileges? Do you know what kind of citizen you are? Do you know your mom signed a contract that literally gave you away to the United States Corporation? We have become collateral for the national debt.
By contract we have the right to sell ourselves to the government. In 1868 the United States was incorporated. This U S Corporation has been masquerading as our government for too long. We have the right to travel, the right to be left alone, the right to put a noose around our neck. Too often we are not aware of the contracting we have been doing with this so-called government.

Subject: Adhesion Contracts We Enslave Ourselves With
THE NOOSE AROUND YOUR NECK THAT YOU PUT THERE
This article contains one that I have not written but deals with information imperative to the survival of our nation and outlines some of the grievous ways in which a foreign corporation has taken complete control over our lives, yes even our very ability to survive. I had intended to write an article myself on the information therein but find that I could not have put it any better than Mr. Johnson already has and I will be referring back to this information in future articles so please read it carefully and understand the dire ramifications it holds over your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. I will insert further thoughts after Mr. Johnson's article.
Voluntary Society – Conditioning – Taxes
By Brent Johnson, director of Freedom Bound International, October 10, 2005
One of the unalienable rights of all Americans is the Right to enter into any contract whatsoever. This natural Right is of inestimable value to free people. Without it, many of our rights (i.e. to acquire, own and possess property, to engage in business as we see fit) have little or no meaning.
However, each American carries the responsibility of exercising and preserving his/her own rights. If you do not jealously guard and protect your rights, then certainly nobody else will.
Almost everyone I meet today wants to know how it is that things have become so oppressive, how government has taken control over so much of daily life, and how America the land of the free has apparently become America the land of the enslaved. My reply is, America is still the land of the free. It’s just that most Americans have used their natural Right to contract to give up their natural rights!
Each of you has the Right to engage in any contract whatsoever, even a contract in which you surrender your rights! In order to maintain your freedom in today’s world, it is essential that you clearly understand this.
Rights or Privileges
It is necessary that you understand the distinction between rights and privileges. A Right is something which you possess simply because you are a living human being. Your rights come from your Creator; they do not come from any government and no government can ever take them away.
On the other hand, a privilege is a gift of the State (capital “S” denotes the corporate State) and as such can be regulated or even taken away by the government. In law, the acceptance of a privilege or benefit always incurs a liability, even if you do not know you are receiving a privilege or benefit, and even if you do not know what the liability is.
Which Citizen Are You?
Each American born in one of the fifty Union states possesses natural rights to life, liberty, travel, the pursuit of happiness, contract, acquiring, owning and possessing property, etc. State Citizens (with a capital “C”) hold all rights which formerly belonged to the king of England (Lansing v. Smith, 21 D. 89). Each Citizen is naturally endowed with all rights as described in the Declaration of Independence and protected by the Constitution for the United States.
Unfortunately, most Americans have unknowingly given up these rights in exchange for the government “privilege” of being a “United States citizen” (with a small “c”). U.S. citizenship has been ruled by the Supreme Court to be a privilege (Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43; United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542, 549). It entitles you to receive benefits from the federal government, such as welfare, food stamps, unemployment insurance, Medicare, SSI, etc.
It is interesting to note that any government benefit may be obtained more securely through the private sector. So, nobody needs to be on the government dole.
Social Security Adhesion Contract
The most notorious contract responsible for the encroachments on our personal freedom is embodied in the Social Security application, Form SS-5. This form is attached to an adhesion contract, which means that you can agree to its terms or not, but you cannot alter the contract in any way.
This contract establishes you as a United States (federal) citizen. By accepting the privilege of U.S. citizenship you have waived your unalienable rights and given up the protection of the Constitution for the United States.
Every time you sign your name to Form W-4, IRS Form 1040, endorse the back of a check, check the box on a government form identifying yourself as a “U.S. citizen” etc., you renew your contract with the federal government.
If you are like most people, your parents originally obtained a Social Security number for you, thereby binding you to the federal government’s adhesion contract. Most likely, they were unwitting accomplices to the government’s efforts to subjugate the population. However, when you turned eighteen and did not revoke this contract, you agreed to its terms just as if you had originally signed it.
However, there is a provision in law that requires all parties entering into a contract to do so knowingly, willfully, and voluntarily, with full disclosure of all of the terms of the contract prior to signing. Otherwise, the contract is considered unconscionable and an act of fraud, and may be nullified and revoked dating back to its original signing; anything that takes place under the terms of an unconscionable contract is void, as if it never happened in the first place.
This means that technically, you are entitled to a refund of every penny you ever paid into Social Security, federal or State income taxes, SSI, Medicare, etc. Don’t count on a refund, though. You’re not likely to get one unless you are prepared for a lengthy court battle, and even then, the odds of your winning in the corrupt United States judicial system are very low. If you don’t want to engage in such a struggle, then just consider yourself fortunate to be out from under the thumb of government regulation and leave it at that.
Social Security is by no means the only government contract which has been used to subject the people to a jurisdiction foreign to them. State issued licenses and registrations represent another type of insidious contract that State and federal governments use to control people.
A license is a permit issued by the State, for you to do something that, were you not licensed, would be illegal. The State retains all control of your behavior with regard to the act being licensed. The State can revoke, suspend or amend your license at any time; you have no rights as long as you possess the license. Take a look at some of the things which we have been told require licensing by the State. Are they inherently illegal?
Right to Travel
As a Citizen, you have a natural Right to travel upon the public roadways. Various state and U.S. Supreme Courts have ruled that this Right extends to and includes the use of automobiles. You cannot be required to pay a fee or tax in order to exercise this natural Right. Drivers licenses and vehicle registrations represent fees which, if they were required of all Citizens, would do exactly that.
Today’s drivers license was originally just a certificate of competency, confirming that you were trained in the operation of a motorcar. Today’s drivers license is permission by the State for you to conduct commerce (drive) by operating a motorcar. Taxi drivers, truck drivers, and chauffeurs are among those who require licensing by the State.
We have all been told that we must get a drivers license; it has even been made into a cultural “rite of passage”. Nevertheless, if you transport persons or property without charging a fee or fare for doing so, there is no legal requirement for a state Citizen to have a drivers license or vehicle registration!
Property of the State
Notwithstanding this fact, lower courts throughout the land ignore the law in favor of raising revenues. There is even an ordinance in the City of Thousand Oaks, California that clearly admits this to be true. At least, they’re honest.
Government takes the position that you are a franchisee of the State, and as such, you are considered to be property of the State. You are a natural resource. In California, the State taxing authority is called the Franchise Tax Board.
If you travel without paying registration or license fees, you are likely to be stopped and given a ticket some day. In some States, laws have been passed authorizing the police to confiscate vehicles when the driver is operating on a suspended or revoked license. This requires the police to make a determination that you are a commercial entity; a determination the police are not legally qualified or authorized to make.
If you are ever in such a situation, do not leave your car! Your car is like your home: it is your private property and the police cannot enter it without first showing you a search warrant and affidavit, both signed by a magistrate. Open your windows a crack only, keep your doors locked. You do not have to submit to orders by police, but you should cooperate wherever possible. Remember, you are a Sovereign Being and do not have to obey laws which violate your natural rights. Police who try to enforce such laws are themselves criminals.
The most significant thing to understand about traffic laws and vehicle codes is that they have limited jurisdiction and only apply to “United States citizens”, not to state Citizens. This is because state Citizens are supreme in America and can only be governed by their own consent.
It is also important for you to understand that when you obtain a drivers license or register your car as a “motor vehicle” you are entering into a contract with the State, which gives them permission to regulate your behavior with respect to your car and its operation. Without this contract the State has no legal authority over your natural Right to travel.
Be very careful! You must learn about the applicable laws of your state. You must accept full responsibility for the consequences of standing up for your rights. Many people in positions of authority in government are openly hostile toward Citizens who assert their natural rights under the Constitution. Some Judicial Districts in northern California have even coined the phrase “constitutionalist” and apply it freely and with disdain to those who want to live free from government. Supposedly impartial judges have openly expressed their disinterest in hearing “constitutionalist” arguments. These are violations of their oaths of office. These judges are also criminals.
You are likely to meet with great resistance if you choose to assert your freedom to travel and other rights. I believe that meeting this sort of resistance is the price of freedom.
What about marriage licenses? Getting married is not illegal so why is a license required? The truth is, it isn’t. However, the government has successfully trained the population to believe it to be necessary to obtain a license before marrying, thus giving the government greater control over the people. For example, by obtaining a marriage license the husband and wife make the State “guardians of their morals” (81 CA2d 871, 185 P2d 381).
Originally, these were called “intermarriage licenses” and were permits for the marriage of a white person to a black person. Back in the days of open slavery in America, black people were not considered to possess the same natural rights as white people. Blacks were thought of as property. They had no Right to enter the contract of marriage. Therefore, if a white wanted to marry a black the couple needed to obtain the State’s permission. Further, the State retained control of both parties to the marriage. A marriage license invites the State to have an interest in your marriage and the fruit of your marriage (i.e. your children).
Right to Conduct Business
It is an inherent and natural Right for all Americans to be able to engage in and conduct business; that’s why America has been called the land of opportunity. Business licenses represent another contract with the State, transferring control over your business to the government. Why would you do that?
Any time you obtain any license you enter into a contract with the State. A license represents transfer of power of attorney over the licensed activity from you to the State.
Today, we are led to believe these and other licenses are mandatory. But think about it. A license is permission to do that which would otherwise be illegal. People were getting married, operating their cars, conducting business, voting, being born before these things were licensed, registered or certified. Why should you give control of your life over to the State? What do you get in return?
Whenever you are confronted with licensing, registering or certifying anything with the State, it is attached to some contract; generally, one which places you under federal jurisdiction, since a Sovereign never needs to license or register his/her behavior. Ask yourself, “Am I a Sovereign or subject?”. Act accordingly.
Common Law Trusts
You can use your Right to contract to protect and defend your family and property. Through establishing Unincorporated Contractual Organizations, Pure Trust Organizations, and other types of common law trusts, you can free yourself completely from government control. Just stay away from government contracts.
Protect Your Rights
Your Right to contract can be used to help you reach for your dreams. But there are those who would subvert this priceless Right to be used for their own ends. Birth certificates, voters registration, business licenses, Social Security, drivers licenses and vehicle registrations are only a few of the contracts of which all lovers of freedom must beware. Remember that your rights carry with them responsibilities: if you don’t jealously and diligently protect them, you may wake up one morning to find that you have given them away!
As I stated at the beginning of this article, the information contained herein is at the very heart of our everyday lives in this country. There are far reaching consequences which the article does not delve into but are even worse than those it does; by signing a Birth Certificate you have relinquished all rights to your child for instance. Remember also that by inadvertently entering into a Marriage License you have given the State the right to a legal interest in your marriage and its issue. Your children ARE that issue although you do not have to be married to sign yet another adhesion contract such as the Birth Certificate. The fact that you have not been given the truth before signing it holds no sway with the court system as their stand is “ignorance of the law is no excuse” and they will not protect you. Let that sink in and then go read my prior article “What You Don’t Know Can and Will Hurt Your Children”, over again.
Adhesion ContractsAdhesion contracts are those that are drafted by the party who has the greater bargaining advantage, providing the weaker party with only the opportunity to adhere to (i.e., to accept) the contract or to reject it.
Unconscionable Contracts An UNCONSCIONABLEcontract is one that is unjust or unduly one-sided in favor of the party who has the superior bargaining power. The adjective unconscionable implies an affront to fairness and decency. An unconscionable contract is one that no mentally competent person would accept and that no fair and honest person would enter into.
Not all Adhesion Contracts are also Unconscionable Contracts in that the terms of such contracts do not necessarily exploit the party who assents to it but it is surely Unconscionable when you are deliberately being kept in the dark as to the nature of it as in the signing of a Birth Certificate. Regardless of how the courts CHOOSE to interpret the matter the fact remains that your corporation government knowingly tricks you into “entrapment” every day of your life by withholding the truth that you do not have to comply with their rules or accept their contracts. In fact they do not stop at withholding, they perpetuate the lies by passing unlawful legislation, providing our children with false information in school, and prosecuting those who know no better when they do not comply with those unlawful rules and regulations put in place by a government with fictitious jurisdiction over you.
Other types of Adhesion Contracts you routinely enter into unawares:
- Insurance policies: Almost all insurance policies are adhesion contracts. As the insured, you have no power to bargain and you either take the insurance policy or you don't.
- Housing: If you attempt to rent an apartment or a house, you will have to sign a lease. The lease is an adhesion contract because the terms are non-negotiable. The same thing goes for many other goods and services, such as buying a car or ordering a computer.
- Tickets:If you go to a baseball game, a cruise, or valet park, most likely there will be small print on the back of the tickets. This is considered an adhesion contract; once you purchase the ticket, you are bound by the terms of the small print contract even if you were unaware it was there.
- IRS FORMS:(ALL OF THEM) OPTION : Do not ever sign any IRS form. Those forms are very cleverly worded traps. A free man is not liable to any Federal corporation just by being born upon this land. The only way one can be held liable to the IRS is by contracting for a benefit. Do not accept any government benefit.
- BANK ACCOUNT:
You might want to take a look at your signature card for your bank account. It says, "I agree to be bound by all the rules of this bank." Ask your bank manager for a copy of all the rules you have accepted criminal liability for by signing that card. They cannot give the entire mass of those rules to you because the bank's rules include all statutes of the "Secretary of the Treasury" of the Federal Reserve. When you sign that application you've agreed to be taxed, searched, audited, and controlled by the IRS. All FDIC/FSLIC State and Federally chartered member banks of the Federal Reserve are "instrumentalities of the Washington Government."
- ENDORSING CHECKS:
It is best not to use checks at all.
When you sign a check with only your name, you validate your use of the "Mark" (dollar sign). This is an invisible contract binding you to the rules of "The King's Commerce."
- DRAFT REGISTRATION:
Selective Service Registration places you under the jurisdiction of the military.
OPTION: Do not do sign any contracts, and the State will have no jurisdiction over you and therefore be unable to enforce any requirement to register for the draft. The State will not even know who to send the form to.
- POSTAL SERVICE:
The postal service is a federal agency that tracks, logs, and sometimes reads, all mail sent by or to you. This mail is a powerful record and testimony to your contractual legal status of "Federal Resident" which you do not accept.
OPTION: Address mail:
City, State-spelled-out (i.e. "New Jersey", not 'NJ') and optionally Zip code (if necessary)
Never identify yourself as a "resident" of anything, particularly a two letter All-Caps Federal Zone, i.e. TN.
In addition to placing you under the same Central Bank control as a personal bank account, borrowing money from the world is forbidden by the Bible:
"The borrower is slave to the Lender."
"Owe no man anything except the debt of love." … "Debt is a curse." … "the Lender's the head and the borrower's the (butt) tail."
OPTION: Never borrow money from the world.
- ANSWERING TO THE ALL CAPS NAME:
(This point is hotly debated but the answer is valid, no matter the exact meaning of the capitalization.)
Look at your bills. Do they list your name as "John Yoder" or "JOHN YODER"? Every time you answer to YOUR NAME by paying a bill with your personal signature, you strengthen the legal connection between your flesh-and-blood-self and the fictional "US PERSON" who is under State jurisdiction and is surety for the national debt.
OPTION:Terminate any relationship with anyone who requires that you do business with them as your NAME spelled in ALL CAPS. Insist that your Name be spelled in proper English literary style: e.g. "John Yoder." If you unfortunately 'own' registered land and thus have to pay property taxes, have someone else pay the taxes for you, or pay by cash. Get a receipt, and don't sign anything.
Humanicide: the process by which mass media and systemic oppression turn men, women, and children into consumers and killers
Murkan: Murky-headed American.
Satan Nation (SataNation): A national sub-unit of the adversarial global world system which operates on fear, debt, and conflict.
SataNations are the opposite of the Kingdom of God, which operates on charity and peace.
For examples of SataNations, see the membership list of the United Nations.
I for one am so very thankful the Republic of the United States of America is not SataNation! http://www.republicoftheunitedstates.org/
