There's a desert involved here, but it consists of poor understanding and probably a dash of unwitting behavior.
I would AGAIN ask you to review both the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation, both of which make provision for those that CHOOSE NOT TO BE GOVERNED. Why do you suppose the provision for "free inhabitants" was created? What do you actually think 'consent to be governed' actually means? Know, too, that these documents are part of the ORGANIC LAW of the country and stand as immutable testaments to the ideas I present.
You should know, too, that the 14th Amendment actually only applies to second class citizens: those that are or unwittingly call themselves US citizens, which Black's defines as a federal citizen* (words mean things). And as I have pointed out previously, the US State Department issues passports to those that stipulate that they are NOT US citizens, but are instead American Nationals. Why do they provide for that if what you assert has any relationship to reality?
It seems that your limited exposure to the reality of the situation has served to function as blinders or perhaps in your case has caused severe myopia.
These truths are not taught in school purposefully—the system is desirous of serfs not educated individuals— but they remain truths nonetheless and the truth is discoverable. One must, however, look outside the box that is purposefully constructed to make you believe that you are something less than your birthright endows, even a slave.
* Are you a federal employee? Do you live on federal territory? Do you mistakenly claim that you are a US citizen?
If we're all equals under the law, then obviously "labor laws" violate that principle. I never consented to be bound by them. Did you?
Government in the main is nothing more than a criminal scam. If you lack sufficient cognitive dissonance, you should go to youtube and watch the short video entitled "Statism: The Most Dangerous Religion". You are obviously one of their choir boys.
Where does government derive the authority to compel people to do what they deem to be morally reprehensible if we're all equals and no one has any more power than the next and can only delegate the authority that they themselves have? You are promoting the scam if you believe otherwise, but importantly you lack a legitimate argument to even substantiate your assertions because you keep sidestepping the issue of lawful authority.
If by that you are attempting to invoke some sort of arcane logic, let me nip it by stating that under the law a contract that in of itself deals or attempts to deal with something illegal to begin with, i.e., murder for hire for example, or is predicated on an otherwise illegal action, the contract could never be deemed valid or enforceable.
What we are actually discussing here is the very idea that someone can be compelled to enter into a contract against their will ostensibly mandated by the state that cannot legitimately give itself that authority in the first place, which, on the face of things, (at least for a considerable amount of this country's history) could never have happened. A contract foisted upon a party that did not want to be a party to it in the first place is absolutely no different than being made to do something under duress. Duress has always nullified such contracts.
So, doesn't the real issue here require determining of when the state acquired the lawful authority to force one, under duress, to do something that they find morally reprehensible? Since we're all equals under the law, each with no more power or authority than the other and government only wields the limited authority that we can choose (by consent) to delegate it, the legitimacy of being so compelled is easily called into question. Not only can I not find any legitimacy, but it seems also to be immoral on its face and that immorality smacks of a state instituted religion run amok.
It's quite obvious that it's you that has the problem. Maybe professional help is warranted. I'd urge you to seek it... and soon.... before we see you on the news as the perpetrator of some heinous act.
Hell of an Engineer.

Monday, precious metals analysts at HSBC released an updated outlook on the silver market, saying that photovoltaic demand is a potential growth area for the white metal.
The analysts said that half of all industrial demand this year could come from solar applications.
“The long-term demand for solar power – and with it silver for photovoltaic and other applications – appears to be positive. According to two 2014 reports from the International Energy Agency, solar power could be the world’s largest source of electricity by 2050,” the analysts said in the report.
You couldn't be more wrong. I dropped out of high school on the very first day of my senior year. I was summoned to the principal's office where I was told that the first time I was sent to his office for anything I would be expelled for the duration. Knowing that fighting and cutting up were part of my schtick, I knew it wasn't going to work out (my guidance counselor concurred). I was certainly no #$%$ kisser and still don't play today.
I got a GED and took the SAT. With an incomplete and otherwise quite an unremarkable transcript, I was actually accepted by Georgia Tech.
I've actually bought more than one house, a commercial building and have paid spot cash for the last 4 vehicles.
That's not offered as a brag mind you, but only to correct your snarky comments. You seem to have some real problems.
Alas and alack... my college education was of no value and my constant appearance on the Dean's List was of no consequence. I must be really, really fortunate. My house is paid for; I have no vehicle indebtedness; and I have successfully been in business for myself since 1971. Where did I go wrong?
And now I'm forced to converse with schmucks.
I'm amused by those that give me thumbs down and lack the intellectual wherewithal to articulate any sort of contrary and/or explanatory comments.
that the Renminbi will be designated a world reserve currency later this year.
What do you suppose that will do for the price of AG & AU, especially in dollar terms?
mental fecal matter in their jobs report. Watch carefully as they downgrade their numbers when no one much is paying attention. You can almost set your watch by them.
You can't have it both ways. First you attack one poster for writing above your comprehension level and then you turn around and denigrate another because their prose isn't up to your standards. Get a damn life.
“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.”
