kooshball5 :  There is a big difference in “Big Brother” and the government being able to track you. You asked about the SSN, then when I answered you had no reply, so you made a wise choice.

I thought they tested for STI’s in the olden days.

headoverboots :  I’m assuming you avail yourself of public maintained roads, police, schools, firefighting services (should the need arise) along with all the other things “big brother” (aka local, state,  and federal government) provides? We, as a collective, pay into these things through tax paying. A SSN is fundamental to that system. So, unless you & your husband go “off grid”, it’ll be difficult for you… unless, of course, you think everyone else in our society should have to pay your way for public services? Lots of folks want to “stick it to the system”, which means, of course, that they just want “something for nothing”.

jannigirl :  First off, yes I pay taxes. Second, forgoing a Social Security is not the same thing. If you think so then you are worse off than the one I was talking to. 

Around here, my property taxes cover these things, not the taxes that come out of my check, and I have lots of property. 

People like me do not feel they are “sticking it to the system” that’s the morons popping out babies every year, sitting on their asses, living on the tax dollars. Again, not people like me. 

If people like you and the other bee want to continue to be oblivious to how much the government rules your life, has their hands in your money, and tracks you, go right ahead. But then you do not get the right to complain with someone like our wonderful POTUS gets elected.

headoverboots :  If you think your property taxes are the only way that public services are funded, then you are delusional. Seriously. 

 

I’m not a huge fan of Trump, but he was better than the alternative. Enough said, on that. (Way too many liberals on this board to go further with that).

jannigirl :  My property taxes are exactly how state roads are built, public schools are funded, etc. That is why, every year in Oct, when I get the break down of what I am paying it tells me exactly what percentages  supposedly go to where. 

Now, I am not saying that is what it is for every state, but I have enough sense to know where all my money goes, otherwise I would not have any. 

As far as Trump….
