”We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
[Deceleration of Independence]
“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the CONSENT of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the RIGHT of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
[Declaration of Independence]
“No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken...
...No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”
[Constitution for the united states of America ; Section 9]
“No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.”
[Constitution for the united states of America ; Section 10]
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . . If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around . . . will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered . . . The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
[Thomas Jefferson - The Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill (1809)]
"Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency (Federal Reserve Notes). Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to earn a fer living. They will be our chattel, and we will hold security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading (birth certificate) to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent (exchanging your energy for worthless debt instruments), forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges (your social security card). They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, f not one man in a million could ever figure or our plans and if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund the government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud which we will call "Social Insurance. " Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may incur and in this manner every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope f or their redemption and we will employ the high office of the President of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America."
[Edward Mandell House (1913)]
“There is no such thing as a power of inherent sovereignty in the government of the United States...In this country the sovereignty resides in the people, and Congress can exercise no power which they have not, by their Constitution entrusted to it. All else is withheld.”
[Juilliard v Greenman, 110 U.S. 421 (1884)]
Sovereign n. 1. A person, body, or state vested with independent and supreme authority, 2. The ruler of an independent state.
[Blacks Law Dictionary 8th Edition]
“The idea prevails with some, indeed it has found expression in arguments at the bar that we have in this country substantially two national governments: one to be maintained under the Constitution(Sovereign), with all of its restrictions: the other to be maintained by Congress(corporate side) outside the independently of that instrument, by exercising such powers as other nations of the earth are accustomed to... I take leave to say that, if the principles thus announced should ever receive the sanction of a majority of this court a radical and mischievous change in our system of government will result. We will, in that event, pass from the era of constitutional liberty guarded and protected by a written constitution into an era of legislative absolutism. It will be an evil day for American liberty if the theory of a government outside the supreme law of the land finds lodgment in our constitutional jurisprudence. No higher duty rests upon this court than to exert its full authority to prevent all violation of the principles of the Constitution.”
[Downes v Bidwell 182 U.S. 244 (1901)]
“Corporations are also of all grades, and made for varied objects; all governments are corporations, created by usage and common consent, or grants or charters, which create a body politic for prescribed purposes; but whether they are private, local or general, in their objects, for the enjoyment of property, or the exercise of power, they are all governed by the same rules of law, as to the construction and the obligation of the instrument by which the incorporation is made. One universal rule of law protects persons and property”
[Proprietors of Charles River Bridge v. Proprietors of Warren Bridge, 36 U.S. 420 (1837)]
“The privelages and immunities of citizen of the United States do not necessarily include all the rights protected by the first eight amendments to the Federal Constitution against the powers of the Federal Government.”
[Maxwell v. Dow, 176 U.S. 581 (1899)]
“The rights of the individuals are restricted only to the extent that they have been voluntarily surrendered by the citizenship of the agencies of government.”
[City of Dallas v. Mitchell, 245 S.W. 944]
“Anyone who partakes of the benefits or privileges of a given statue, or anyone who even places himself into a position where he may avail himself of those benefits at will cannot reach constitutional grounds to redress grievances in the courts against the given statute.”
[Ashwander v T.V.A., 297 U.S. 288, 346, 56 S. Ct. 466, 482, 80 L.Ed. 688 (1936)]
“...still the obligation to pay taxes is not penal. It is a statutory liability, quasi contractual in nature, enforceable, if there is no exclusive statutory remedy, in the civil courts by the common-law action of debt or indebitatus assumpsit.”
[Milwaukee v White, 296 U.S. 268 (1935)]
“The right to associate or not associate with others solely on the basis of individual choice, but being absolute, may conflict with a societal interest in requiring one to associate with others, or to prohibit one from associating with others, in order to accomplish what the state deems to be common good. The supreme Court though rarely called upon to examine this aspect of the right to freedom of association, has nevertheless established certain basic rules which will cover many situations involving forced or prohibited associations. Thus were a sufficiently compelling state interest outside the political spectrum, can be accomplished only by requiring individuals to associate together for the common good, then such forced association is constitutional. But the Supreme Court has made it clear that compelling an individual to become a member of an organization which financially supports, in more than an insignificant way, political personages or goals which the individual does not wish to support, is an infringement of the individual's constitutional right to freedom of association. The First Amendment prevents the government, except in the most compelling circumstances, from wielding its power to interfere with its employees' freedom to believe and associate, or to not believe and not associate; it is not merely a tenure provision that protects public employees from actual or constructive discharge. Thus, First Amendment principles prohibit a state from compelling any individual to associate with a political party as a condition of retaining public employment.”
[American Jurisprudence 2d, Constitutional law, §546: Forced and Prohibited Associations]
“...railroad benefits, like social security benefits, are not contractual and may be altered or even eliminated at any time.”
[United States Railroad Retirement Board v. Fritz, 449 U.S. 166 (1980)]
“Thus, the Court has frequently held that domicile or residence, more substantial than mere presence in transit or sojourn, is an adequate basis for taxation, including income, property, and death taxes. Since the Fourteenth Amendment makes one a citizen of the state where in he resides, the fact of residence creates universally reciprocal duties of protection by the state of allegiance and support by the citizen. The latter obviously includes a duty to pay taxes, and their nature and measure is largely a political matter.”
[Miller Brothers Co. v. Maryland, 347 U.S. 340 (1954)]

Treasury Decision 3980, Vol. 29, January-December, 1927, pgs. 64 and 65 defines the words includes and including as: “(1) To comprise, comprehend, or embrace…(2) To enclose within; contain; confine…But granting that the word ‘including’ is a term of enlargement, it is clear that it only performs that office by introducing the specific elements constituting the enlargement.
