There's a lot of background that I could get into, and I would like to
get into that, however I have time restraints so I'll try to keep it

What it boils down to is that I operate my personal life (which
OpenNIC is part of) as a sovereign human of planet Earth, for that
part of my life I answer to nobody except my creator. I file no taxes
of any kind related to any transactions when I am operating as a
sovereign human (why should I? nobody owns me personally).

My argument boils down to; nobody has jurisdiction over me when I am
not operating as an agent of a corporation or a government (ask
yourself how do they get authority over you?...), and/or any signatory
to any of those things, in other words, when I operate as Mike of the
family Sharkey, I answer to nobody, and pay no toll for doing so.

So first of all, as you see I have no need for a 501.C3 and neither do

By signing onto 501.C3 you are doing two things. You are providing
prima facie evidence that you owe tax money in the first place (which
you've already lost me at this point, because I don't owe any taxes to
anybody despite what "officials" might seemingly claim).

Then secondly 501.C3 puts you in a binding contract with the federal
government whereby they get to set the rules. In other words, you are
in effect asking the government to rule over you in exchange for not
stealing as much money from you.

It just does not compute for me.

I should not really use the word "steal" as in theft when referring to
Government taxation because most people just go along with it
voluntarily and don't question a thing, it's more of a deception, a
con job, a slight of hand, than it is really an outright theft, but on
the other hand to deprive a person of his property by deception is
also theft.....

As a general rule I try to avoid in any way, associating my sovereign
person (that I have worked so hard to untangle from the web of
seemingly benign contracts with the government) with anything that
might be consider evidence that I agree to any of the "offers" being
put forth by them.

Generally speaking anything you sign with the government will give
them authority over you in some way. That's the core of my concern,
like I said I've spent a considerable amount of effort getting back to
being sovereign within my own life domain.

In any case, I could write a book, but hopefully I've clarified my
position sufficiently.
