Chewing a bone on this issue. Really curious as to why this:

In 1983, the U.S. Congress closed a loophole in the original Social Security Act that allowed municipal governments to opt out of the Social Security system.

Really. Why? Why can’t individuals in this nation, a free nation, yes?, opt out of the Social Security system? Why MUST we have a soc sec card to secure gainful employment? I know the reasons that opponents of this system talk about, but what about supporters of the system?

Any supporters of the social security system want to weigh in on why Americans canNOT opt out of the social security system? On why there are so many processes and requirements in place that insure all working Americans will get a social security number and become a part of this system?

Not wanting argument at all. Really wanting to know.
