If they federales are going to make it so difficult, one might as well
start a new identity.

How does one go about constructing a new identity now?

Birth certificate.  What kind of certification are they looking for?
The state seal?  That's easy enough to fake.  Do they do verification?
How much?  What if it comes back negative?  What's their response to,
"The state records must be screwed up?"  That's a plausible excuse for
anyone who can claim to be born before modern computerization... at
least anyone no longer in HS.

What are the ID requirements for getting a SSN?  Since it's goal is to
con SSN holders into paying their "fair share" of tax revenue, the gov
can't be too picky.

Once one have those two, one can get a passport, no?  Aren't those
three items are acceptable proof of identify for a DL?
