So I have a collection of websites.  However, each site could have its own membership that doesn't inherit from the parent site.  I have a request to give someone access to all of our sites in our web collection.  How can I do that besides giving them the System admin account?  Thank you.

Create a User Policy at the Web Application level, and grant appropriate access:

This will trump at security permissions at the site level.

what do you mean by "This will trump all security permissions at the site level."?  So, is this like giving Sharepoint system admin permission?

Yes, if you assign someone a User Policy at the Web Application level, it doesn't matter what the specific site level permissions are.

If at the site level, they do not have permissions to the site, but you assign a User Policy, they will have access to all sites within the web application.

Ok, the req changed.  I need to give this user access to all sub-sites and everything under this particular site in my SharePoint site collection  Do I still caret User Policy for this?  Btw, the link you provided didn't list anything for user policy, it talks about user permission.  

Thank you.

The link talks about managing user permission poicies. If you noticed in the steps given in the document, the SharePoint UI just calls it "User Policy":

4.In the Policy group of the ribbon, click User Policy.

The User Policies apply at the web application level, so that would apply to all site collections within the specific web app.

If that is unacceptable, you will have to go site by site and apply permissions. You could probably script that out using PowerShell instead of having to manually click through each site.
