And yet you stubbornly claim we "need" a federal government.
Anyway, when any doctor I visit asks for my socialist security 
number, I refuse to give it.
They say they need it for my insurance, but I then tell 'em I have no 
insurance. Then they say they need it for my records...that their 
computer system needs it to file me correctly. I then tell them that 
I refuse and if they choose no not treat me that is up to them.
I have never had one turn me away.

On a similar note, I am in the jewelry industry and some of my 
suppliers have asked me to give up personal information to comply 
with the Patriot Act. They also get the choice to not deal with me, 
but I don't give up the info they require.

Businesses (metal suppliers and heathcare providers) who accept 
license from government must comply with these edicts, I an 
individual, working by right rather than license, do not.
