     v.                       ) 28 U.S.C. 1746(1);

                              ) P.L. 93-579 (uncodified).

COMES NOW Paul Andrew Mitchell, Plaintiff in the above entitled case, Citizen of California, Private Attorney General and Federal Witness, to file this, His AFFIDAVIT OF IDENTIFICATION, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1746(1) and Public Law (“P.L.”) 93-579, in recognition of the need for heightened security of the personnel employed in the federal building, of all visitors, and of all properties located there.

     Plaintiff is unable to obtain a standard California driver’s license or State-issued identification card, because the State of California currently requires a Social Security Number (“SSN”) on the application for both forms of identification.  Said application clearly states that it will be refused, if an SSN is not shown on that form.

     Plaintiff is now protesting the Social Security system for religious, economic and legal reasons.

     It appears to Plaintiff that the SSN matches most, if not all, of the features characteristic of the “mark of the beast” prohibited by The Revelation –- the last Book in the New Testament.  The prohibition made in that Book is absolute and unqualified.

Plaintiff is also privy to certain plans uniquely to identify electronic devices called “subcutaneous transponders,” which can be placed under the skin and energized by an external power source.  Once energized by the proper external power source, the transponder emits an electronic signal coded with this unique identification number.  Such transponders are already being used uniquely to identify dogs, cats, and other pet animals.

     On July 12, 2000 A.D., in an anonymous lead editorial, The Wall Street Journal correctly identified the Social Security system as a “Ponzi Scheme” (or pyramid scheme).  As such, the Social Security system violates California State laws prohibiting insurance fraud.

     Plaintiff has also studied the original Social Security Act, as amended, and has concluded from His thorough study that said Act has always been municipal in scope and creates no obligation whatsoever for a Citizen of California to participate.  See IRC 3121(e).

     For the record, Plaintiff also wishes to add that He was unlawfully arrested and incarcerated in central Texas, during the Summer of 1998 A.D., specifically for refusing to provide local police with an SSN and for citing Public Law 93-579 in lieu thereof.  Later, Plaintiff sued the parties responsible for that unlawful arrest.  The pleadings in that case are now available at Internet URL:

     In summary, Plaintiff argues that He cannot be compelled to violate His sincere religious beliefs, nor can He be compelled to participate in a voluntary government program, nor can He be compelled to violate State laws prohibiting insurance fraud, as a condition of entry into the federal courthouse in Sacramento, California.

     Accordingly, Plaintiff now attaches an untouched passport‑type photograph of Himself, taken while He was on sabbatical in Hawaii during the Summer of 2000 A.D., as follows:
