A new federal identification card system rebuffed by half of the states has passed the final step to be implemented in Iowa on Jan. 15, leaving residents with the option of two different types of driver’s licenses.

The new REAL ID driver’s licenses and nonmotorist identification cards will be required for new driver’s license applicants in Iowa, including newcomers moving in from out of state.

sadly i will have no choice when my current license expires, i must comply and obtain the READ ID card.

at least half of the states have the sanity to stay away from such an experiment. iowa has been in the process of moving far to the right and its shameful to be part of it all.

I don't see any problem with this. In fact, I never saw a problem with it to begin with. There's a number of people in this country, as well as on this site, that want to enact voter ID laws. If that were the case then ID's would be even more secure.

Good for Iowa not being scared into irrationality.

But why the hell does it have to be a separate ID card and why can't we just show our driver's license or other ID card to vote?

I think all this is is just another money revenue scheme, and is not intended to help the people at all.

So of course it will be enacted in many other states now.

I hate this country. All it cares about is raising money to keep it's rich people happy.

And sometimes I want to become a socialist. But Socialism is no better.

Well I do see a problem with it. Why don't they just microchip everyone and get it over with. You need a birth certificate, you need a social security number, you need a state ID, you need a real ID....

Let's just throw privacy and civil liberties under the bus so we can have the illusion of safety. "Line up here cattle, errr people, and get your government branding."

I fail to see how this will prevent identity theft. Real ID puts all of your information in one place, literally. These ID's will not be anymore secure in the long run and the impact of one being commandeered by a criminal will be worse.

As far as the cost I would recommend reading what the ACLU has to say www.aclu.org...

Make no mistake, you will pay to have your privacy stripped from you - just be sure to smile and say thank you.

Because of people like you that don't want to participate in the REAL ID and want the option of keeping the old one. Unless you're applying for a new license you don't have to get the Iowa REAL ID.


...why can't we just show our driver's license or other ID card to vote?


Obviously it's becasue they can be easily forged. Which is part of the idea behind the REAL ID legislation. You can take the other option and note show any ID at all.


I think all this is is just another money revenue scheme, and is not intended to help the people at all.


How so? The new ID card doesn't cost any more or any less than the existing card.


So of course it will be enacted in many other states now.


Why shouldn't it?

Sometimes.


And sometimes I want to become a socialist. But Socialism is no better.


How so?

Let them have their "straw man", I know myself pretty well as a flesh and blood human being. I've even traced my ancestry to around 800AD. All they have is some data and numbers, in the end, they have very little real information about me. Let them believe what they want to, they are all about the lies anyway. I would like to view the complete profile on myself although it would probably reveal very little in the way of reality.

A big part of REAL ID’s value, according to Mark Lowe, director of the DOT’s Motor Vehicle Division, will be in verifying the authenticity of the documents and the accuracy of the information used by applicants. Iowa will be able to interact with federal databases to verify that federal documents submitted by applicants are authentic.


Can't see anything wrong with this. I hate identity theft, being a victim of it is hell. I know first hand. And considering

The new rules stem from Congressional passage of the Real ID Act in 2005, at the recommendation of a commission studying lessons from the 9/11 attacks. Legislators in many states called the requirements unconstitutional, portraying REAL ID as a kind of Orwellian government effort to track citizens.


So NON-real ID is not Orwellian???
