Your Papers, Citizen
If you listen to Big Sis and the rest of the Internal Security mavens, the rationale for enhanced licenses sounds reasonable at first hearing, perhaps even prudent. But–the inclusion of a tracking chip should send chills up the spines of even the most ardent anti-terrorist, not to mention civil libertarians of all persuasions. Curious, then, that none of the usual liberal suspects, including our Boy Wonder President, have raised so much as a peep, especially when you consider the tantrum they threw over Arizona’s immigration law, a key feature of which was the checking of documents of suspected illegal aliens. The more cynical types among us may even wonder if the true purpose of the Real ID Act is not then to improve the safety of the Republic, but to solidify the power of the regime by keeping its citizens under constant and unrelenting surveillance.

E-Mail From USJF:
Within 90 days, all 50 States will be required to provide uniform, biometric, federalized, drivers’ licenses, containing personalized GPS tracking chips. This directive from the Obama Administration’s Department of Homeland Security, will be implemented through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration [NHTSA]. Your new drivers’ license, when you receive it, will be a defacto National ID Card.
Do you remember those old black-and-white war-era and post-war era spy films, where German or Soviet police would ask the people: “Where are your papers?” THIS IS NO DIFFERENT. Welcome. You have arrived in 1984. Not the year. The book. Or, the movie. George Orwell’s 1984. The biometric age of Big Brother.
The National Driver’s License, which will be biometric, stems from The REAL I.D. Act of May 11, 2005. To listen to the post-2001 politicians (who will never let a “good crisis go to waste,” REAL ID was implemented to make it harder for people who are not citizens to secure state-issued driver’s licenses. The new law, which has been postponed three times because no lawmaker wants it to take effect during “their watch,” takes effect on May 11, 2011. On that date, any state which has not yet complied will be required to produce a drivers’ license that conforms to the new federal “standards.” Those “standards” will convert your state-issued drivers’ license into a real Nazi-style national identification card—with all the attributes of a World War II-era Internal Passport.
Each card will contain a GPS tracking chip. In case someone steals your card, “Big Brother Obama” will know, within 3 feet, where that card is at any moment. Not only does the government have 18 private pieces of information on you—they can literally TRACK YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE! George Orwell’s book, 1984, is coming to life right before our very eyes!
If we don’t do something RIGHT NOW, May 11, 2011, will be here before we even know it. Somehow, Congress is being quiet about all of this. Why? I know that Mr. Obama does not want you to know about your Identity Theft. But it is already happening!
Why is this National Drivers’ License so important? Because you will need it to:
* Enter a federal building
* Buy an airplane ticket
* Pass through security at airports
* And, of course, you will need it to drive your car.
* In addition, you will need it to give to any police officer who asks for it for any reason—even if you are sitting on your front porch, enjoying the night air.
The controversial 2005 bill was designed to create national standards for driver’s licenses, but it is doing far more than that. Janice Kephart, Director of National Security Policy at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), reports: “Real ID is alive and well and it is being implemented,” Some states have already complied well before the deadline. Personal data about you has already been taken and it has been stored in a government dossier about you.
