    If it 3/4 of your legal neighbors agreed it would 'solve' the US illegal immigration problem, would you subject yourself to mandatory carrying of a US Citizen ID card with your photo, thumbprint and a magnetic strip with your biographical data on it?

    P.S. - It's a poll, but I type slow... gimme a sec...

    I would prefer a chip implanted in either my forehead or right hand.

    Why not? The illegals are certainly not going to register... the only other option is to count the warm bodies (and account for them) that are supposed to be walking around between Canada and Mexico.

    I do not want the government having any more information on me than they currently do, hell I don't want them to have all they do!

    Then there is the problem of the government increasing the need of information, restrictions, etc. What if they are lost? Stolen? What will be the penalties?

    I want liberty, the nature of government is to 'control', they don't need additional tools.

    I understand your fear, but somebody has to have all that information on us...

    What makes the private credit reporting companies and the private financial corporations more worthy to maintain that database?

    What would those private corporations pay to down load a few choice years and / or names off of the Social Security Administrations Database, I wonder? :eusa_think:

    Hasn't a thing to do with 'fear' has everything to do with restraining government that gets its power from us, not the other way around.

    Should we refuse to give our 'personal' information to every corporation that demands it? Can we live the lifestyle we've become accustomed to without having massive data bases tracking our every transaction? Are we willing to give up Social Security Mandatory Insurance against disability and retirement?

    Is it worth it?

    Once again, Average Joe has more questions than answers! :D

    What we choose to give depends on what we wish to acquire. Not one business can demand any information, if one is not asking them for a thing. Government? That's different. Nope, not going there.
