  •  No, sadly, because it leads to identity theft. (4+ / 0-)

    Public databases of SSN's get hijacked and identity theft results. You need some other sort of number that's not usable for establishing identity for anything but voting.

    •  But don't you think the next new number (0+ / 0-)

      will get used for more general I.D. purposes too, just like SSN's have been? I suspect if you assign people a unique number, that number will get abused to steal identities.

      We need strong identity theft laws. It should be assured prison time. It is too often treated to casually, taking to much to get investigation and prosecution.

      A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward. Franklin D. Roosevelt
