One of the ladies in the liberty movement in NH has a teenage son who does not have an SSN. Doesn't have a license to drive. Can't open a bank account. It can be done but it makes life a lot more difficult. Course, who needs those things anyways, right?

My son was born last summer and we opted not to apply for SSN for him, most people I talk to about it dont know that there is an option. We can not claim him on our taxes and I dont think we could enroll him in school when that time comes, we hope to be homeschooling by then so that doesnt matter to us. Im not sure if not having the SSN is worth it or not, but I just want him to be able to make that choice for himself. He will probably be forced to accept the SSN when the selective service forces him to "sign up". Thats how the SSN trap works.

No, but we have a system in place so that if there was a 'need' it could be started up at a moments notice.

Right. We have the same thing here. I got my summons around age 17/18. Funnily enough the draft is only for "men". Since my government has coerced me into that category, if they ever choose to draft me into the army I'll (probably) be the only draftee with tits.

Not that I'd go anyway. I'd dodge it like my dad did Tongue. He's such an anarchist and doesn't even know it. He's certainly a libertarian though.

My wife seems fond of those things. I don't know why exactly.   Smiley

I've managed to get rid of and live without one of them so far. Still working on the other. Bitcoin FTW!
