130. Patrice, I remember getting my first SS card. I was 12.
I had worked as an electricians helper and some other cash jobs prior to that. But at 12 I had to get my SS card when I took over two paper routes. Not today. When children are born, they "get their papers." Of course "our" government could do the same with voter I.D.'s. Either at birth or when they turn 18 a person could automatically be registered to vote.

This would make more sense than forcing SS cards on newborns. Unfortunately, until we actually get legitimate elections, it doesn't matter.

IMO, voting should be mandatory for every American. Further, I think the continued "caging" practices that are done by the rethugs (at least) are just a cover for the fact that our voting no longer counts. We have been taken over.

Hopefully, OWS is the beginning of the end of this coup.
