21. Which of those three are required to work as an independent contractor?
As a piece-work employee? As a babysitter? As a kid who mows lawns in the summer for spare cash?

Answer: NONE.

You only need a passport if you want to jump between countries, you only need a SS number if you want to pay into (or get money out of) the federal plan, and you only need a military ID if you decided to volunteer.

Yes, we don't have Nazi-ism here....
1. We haven't made a huge military a cornerstone of our economy.
2. We haven't invaded nations under false pretenses.
3. Our police and military don't shoot unarmed people.
4. People aren't racially profiled.
5. Our government doesn't attempt to arrest and imprison people for speech which damages the government.
6. Americans aren't unwittingly experimented upon.
7. We don't have a huge amount of money and resources spent on surveillance of our citizens.
8. We don't glorify military service.
9. We don't torture or kill people to extract information from them.
10. We don't exempt government authorities from being held accountable for crimes.

Do I really need a sarcasm tag?

Yes, we aren't 1945 Nazi's, we're closer to the "kinder, gentler", 1936 Nazis.

Yay, US!
