Obama Administration Reportedly Plans to Create Internet ID for All Americans Read more: www.foxnews.com...

President Obama is putting plans in motion to give the Commerce Department authority to create an Internet ID for all Americans, a White House official told CNET.com.

White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt told the website it is "the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government" to centralize efforts toward creating an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet.

IT's been "reported"...and we all know FOX likes to blow things up for ratings, BUT this all coinsides with the new SOPA bill.

I do agree people SHOULD be held accountable for what they say and do online. People should act online as if they are speaking to someone in real life (Although I'm way cooler online lol)

Either way, if you DO execute something illegal on the internet it's not as if Cyber Crime Units do not already exist, this just makes it easier.

So, if someone hacked your computer the damage will extend FAR more! You could even end up in prison for being hacked?

All these guys know how to do is make rules. They are pathetic.
Their "control grid" plans will fail because greater minds will thwart them every step of the way. They don't yet realize they have failed.
More and more, people are either checking out of a corrupt system, or they are raising their middle finger and saying EFF you, so what happens when the would be controllers suddenly realize a few hundred million people are telling them to kiss their collective asses? They will have the names. Big deal.
There will be open season on these guys before you know it.

I disagree. It makes it way too easy for hackers to steal your identity if your identity is attached to your actions in cyberspace. It's already easy enough as it is. Not to mention, it takes away the ability to review things anonymously so that you don't suffer retribution.

There are all kinds of ways that such a thing will make abuse very easy, and not just by the government.

Doesn't that already exist? It's called an IP Address

Slippery slope. I say freedom of speech as long as no threats are thrown around. I don't want to turn into a country where we can't even talk smack online. Where's the fun in that?

Can I still say how much I despise this *ahem* man?

Getting more so every day.

Peace (Although that's a word that he doesn't even know the meaning of)

Not exactly, because you see, if someone say hijacks my WiFi or if they use a station like McDonalds for free WiFi or Starbucks, whatever, it goes back to that computer system. Plus you can change IP addresses and you can also filter and hide IP addresses. I can even duplicate someone else's IP address.

Because it is yet another step to full control over every action you take and the dissolving of any rights to privacy you still have.

How can people NOT get this?

I assume corporate or government psyop agents will be issued unlimited ID's??

So this applies only to Americans? What about illegals?

The article was published in 2011, so I doubt this coincides with SOPA. Still, it's worth looking in to.

Hey Obama, KISS MY A$$ you communist SOB. The tighter you squeeze the more we will slip through your fingers.

Great point!

But I can hide behind proxies or spoof an IP Addy...that's easy.

I don't like this one bit....not one bit at all....

The only way this would work is if we all had to go through the Government Proxy to access the internet and that my friends would be suicide to freedom. They would have everything you do online in a database somewhere.

I can't believe you're supporting this idea?!

Isn't the purpose of life to have less government intervention instead of more? Don't you value your personal freedom to move about the world as you see fit?

How can this sound like a good idea to you?

What next? Communism?

When a man creates a lock, more often than not another man will think of a way to compromise that lock. There was a time when an IP wasn't spoofable. As with this, there will be those that find "a way"...due to the "will" that will follow if this is brought to fruition.

Agreed....I will be one of those. I wasn't supporting it...lol...exactly the opposite.

I will be one of those who will find a way.
