U.S. House of Representatives approved the Real ID Act on Thursday Story dated 10 February 2005
Most of the news stories about this act focus only on the good aspects of this bill. Anyone care to mention that this bill will create a national database on people who are not criminals, and that such information, according to this bill, will be shared with certain officials of foreign governments? How do you feel about the Mexican government having access to your personal information? If you're like me, you'll say it's none of their business and you ought to have the right to keep your personal information from falling into their hands. Conservative talk show hosts like Michael Savage are praising this bill. Indeed, I agree with the aspects that he is praising, but this bill is fundamentally flawed and is, I believe, actually a hindrance to the security of individual Americans. As Ramsey Clark said, "There is no conflict between liberty and safety. We will have both or neither." _____________________________________________
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
