Arizona Governor, Janet Napolitano, has formally agreed to have Arizona create a new driver’s license in an attempt to pioneer one of the first Real ID cards in the United States (Fischer, 2007). The Governor stated that she hoped the move would put the state on the “leading edge of a movement to an effective permanent program that can be implemented nationwide (ABC 15 News, Phoenix, August 28, 2007)."
Homeland Security Chief, Michael Chertoff, admits that the secure licenses that would be created are designed to be aligned with the requirements of the Real ID Act which eventually is designed to make each state’s driver’s licenses as acceptable as any federal document. And much like the infamous Mark of the Beast, a person cannot opt out of participation, unless of course, they do not intend to bank, travel and work (ABC 15 News, August 28, Phoenix, 2007).
