    Just seems to me that one of the least things a country should be able to know is who its citizens are.

    Absolutely - for a variety of reasons. On this, I'm hoping that the majority of the country realize that the Democrats have lost their ever loving minds.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    I would think the Social Security Administration basically does that. Nowadays, children are given a social security number at birth in the US and only US citizens can get them. If a US citizen is born abroad (like I was) the parents file a form of birth abroad with the State Department.

    Sure there will be some margin of error as some people might avoid getting a social security number for some reason (paranoia) or some people could maybe scam the system somehow to get a number when they shouldn't, but I think that would be a small percentage. And when you die that is recorded by the SSA also, so they know how many active SS numbers are out there. That would be a pretty close number of US Citizens alive today. And they can correlate those numbers to names and ages.
