Federal ID plan raises privacy concerns


www.cnn.com

(CNN) -- Americans may need passports to board domestic flights or to picnic in a national park next year if they live in one of the states defying the federal Real ID Act.

The act, signed in 2005 as part of an emergency military spending and tsunami relief bill, aims to weave driver's licenses and state ID cards into a sort of national identification system by May 2008. The law sets baseline criteria for how driver's licenses will be issued and what information they must contain.

That's it! Resist the (inter)national ID card and you'll end up being forced to use your passport (another ID) anyway. That's really disgusting. Don't have your passport to go picnic in a national park? Well you gonna be arrested.

And they claim again that it's for national security while the border are wide open... I can't wait the moment when we get those traitors...

Hmm this will be interesting to see how it fares in court.

Some to ponder:

DESPITE ACTIONS OF POLICE AND LOCAL COURTS,


and



The U.S. Supreme Court also dealt with the right to travel in the case of Saenz v. Roe, 526 U.S. 489 (1999). In that case, Justice John Paul Stevens, writing for the majority, held that the United States Constitution protected three separate aspects of the right to travel among the states: the right to enter one state and leave another, the right to be treated as a welcome visitor rather than a hostile stranger (protected by the Privileges and Immunities Clause in Article IV, § 2), and for those who become permanent residents of a state, the right to be treated equally to native born citizens (this is protected by the 14th Amendment Citizenship Clause).

Thank you for emphasis on the borders, while they try to restrict and take away our rights/freedoms. Terrorists, come on in. Our borders are open. And while you are at it, we should take away some more freedoms of law-abiding citizens in the name of national security. So at least we feel better about the open borders.

Shame, I guess the terrorists won't be able to picnic in our national parks. That will teach them!

God bless this great land.
