Editorial In the United States, state and local authorities are in charge of voting and the country uses more than a half dozen different voting technologies. As a result, the country can't guarantee that it accurately counts national votes in a timely fashion. This article discusses the problem and potential solutions to the U.S. voting dilemma.

Well, my point was more that we don't need it because it's already there.

I took it from your critique of the SSN that you'd prefer it didn't exist, but now I understand better, thanks for clarifying.

That's what I meant by oppressive, which is why I chose that particular word rather than repressive. They actually have different meanings though the former is often misused to convey the latter.

That word can have several meanings and its use to describe an unjust or tyrannical government is common: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/oppressive?s=t
In any case, I get your point.
