What was its purpose?
Corp. U.S. was created to provide the opportunity for contractual controllability over relationships under the Constitutional authority for Congress to pass any law within the ten mile square of the District of Columbia (see: Historical Outline). Interestingly, the Social Security Act of 1935 [H. R. 7260] was passed by Corp. U.S.’ Congress two years after Corp. U.S.’ bankruptcy. The opening paragraph of the act states:
“An act to provide for the general welfare by establishing a system of Federal old-age benefits, and by enabling the several States to make more adequate provision for aged persons, blind persons, dependent and crippled children, maternal and child welfare, public health, and the administration of their unemployment compensation laws; to establish a Social Security Board; to raise revenue; and for other purposes.”
Given the fact that the Constitution provides the government no authority to do anything stated in that paragraph other than: “to raise revenue”, we added the bold emphasis to point out overall purpose of the act was: “to raise revenue; and for other purposes.” Thus, the other provisions of that statement merely authorize the respective states to form voluntary relationships necessary to their acceptance and participation with the proposed program. Keep in mind: said “other purposes”, are not defined; and, the Constitution grants the government (formed by it) no authority to either govern the people or “provide” for their general welfare. Respectively, once the Act was passed the Social Security Administration was formed and Corp. U.S. printed millions of Social Security cards.
Now, remember: Corp. U.S. was bankrupt at the time—it had no money and it could not lawfully compel anything until it resolved its debt; except, by entering into new contracts where the contracting parties were aware of said bankruptcy and its control over their agreements. This is a country made up of people (sovereigns without subjects) the government was created to serve, not control. Lastly, we are reminded that several points of the Constitution forbid the government, or its officers, from raising themselves above the people. So, one must ask, “How Corp. U.S. planned on putting this Act into action?”
The only way it lawfully could — by the peoples’ voluntary participation. To this day there is no requirement for anyone to participate with the Social Security Administration in any way, that is, until a cardholder relationship is applied for and the card is accepted by a cardholder (see: Corp. U.S. Myth 10).
