Religious liberty is a recognized right. But Amish lose their religious liberty if they get an SSN.
Everyone, not just Amish, lose their rights if they get an SSN.
The Amish do not vote.
The Amish will never have ID cards.
The Amish do not have business licenses for their businesses.
The Amish will not normally get a Social Security Card because it is proof that you don’t trust God.
They can visit their Canadian brethren without a Passport.
The Americans who still believe in the motto of the United States — In God We Trust — are the Americans who will never use the health care that Obamacare forces them to purchase.
Here is a partial definition of liberty.
US Supreme Court in Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 US 390, at page 399:
The term Liberty “… denotes not merely freedom from bodily restraint, but also the right of the individual to contract, to engage in any of the common occupations of life, to acquire useful knowledge, to marry, to establish a home and bring up children, to worship God according to the dictates of his/her own conscience… the established doctrine is that this liberty may not be interfered with under the guise of protecting public interest, by legislative action which is arbitrary or without reasonable relation to some purpose within the competency of the state to effect.”
Even the tax code recognizes that the Amish are exempt from Social Security according to section 1402(g) of the Internal Revenue Code (originally Public Law 99-514 section 4).
The few Amish who do leave their communities and end up getting a number lose their religious liberties according the Supreme Court in U.S. v. Lee (455 U.S. 252).
An Amish carpenter who worked for an Amish farmer lost his relgious liberty because he had a Social Security Number.
“The state may justify a limitation on religious liberty by showing that it is essential to accomplish an overriding governmental interest”

In other words, those who are numbered must be regulated. And taxed.
American government was originally founded for religious liberty. Not just from Pilgrim days. According to the Declaration of Independence, we are created equal with unalienable creator-endowed rights that governments are instituted among men to secure.
But those with SSNs have waived their creator-endowed rights.
And we know that untaxed labor is a property right:
US Supreme Court has ruled in Butcher’s Union v. Crescent City 111 U.S. 746:
“The property which every man has in his own labor, as it is the original foundation of all other property, so it is the most sacred and inviolable. … to hinder his employing this strength and dexterity in what manner he thinks proper without injury to his neighbor, is a plain violation of this most sacred property.”
But those who are so destitute that they get SSNs, have forfeited their most sacred property.
Getting an SSN forfeits your religious liberty.
