Matt T. replied to Pale Horse's discussion Voter Scrutiny-- What's the Hangup? in the group The Great Debate
"I see your point there.  As someone who's never dealt with S.S. aside from paying in (and not expecting to get much of anything out), the number's always been more of a general, federal ID method than a purpose-specific eligibility…"

"Honest question: What is your issue with attaching Photos to SS# cards?  The numbers are attached to our lives already, and I figured using the # someone could surely find a photograph of whoever it's assigned to. I do see how carrying…"

"Well call me crazy then, cause the stuff he's saying about choosing to live in a positive viewpoint is exactly how I go about my days too. Exactly true that anyone's opinions about how to live life are only really important to themselves,…"

"Another way of saying it: Success/happiness comes from internal perception rather than external success.  If you want to achieve peace & joy, learn to view the world through a naturally happy perspective. I believe Josh is either making a…"
