Ya, but you know eventually more will be added to it. It will come in through seemingly good ideas.
voter ID, and medical history
voter ID, medical history, sex predators
voter ID, medical history, felons
voter ID, med, felons, no fly list
etc etc etc...each step cheered until you are carrying around basically your entire history and tons of private info on you, and required to carry it.
I see the pros and cons of a national ID card. question is, is the inevitable corruption worth the short term gains...what would possibly stop it. Tomorrow will be a different witch hunt and people will be wanting to tag a new segment of people...how can you go against the will of the frightened flock called the average citizen?
