    That's just not true. If the mine had any sort of payroll, and they would have considering state and federal inspectors are required for the mines to operate, as well as several licensing agencies, then your uncle is spinning tales for you. I too went to work at 12 and had to apply for my SS# in order to receive pay. Anyone born in the last three decades has a SS# as they have been assigned at birth.

    A coal mine doing something illegal? That wasn't all the illegal stuff they did or do.

    Not legally or literally. A tax is a direct levy of property. Showing an ID is not.

    Once again, I call bull**** and I was born over 60 years ago. Mines were inspected by both state and feds back then as well. And the owing your soul to the company store generation (paid in script living on company land) was the one before his and mine - Woody Guthrie era. That would put him in the 1950s when he was 12.

    Of course it would, but not because its a poll tax. The govt doesn't have the power to regulate healthcare. It does have the power to regulate elections.
