The Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal report that President Obama and at least 8 Senators are now calling for a National ID Card, with a computer chip and other biometric features...

Yeah, because my drivers license, birth certificate, passport just aren’t enough. I
WHAT IF IT CAN BE USED FOR VOTER ID? U know the Dems will be against it.
What a jackass. We can’t require proof of. Citizenship to vote, but they want me to carry a National ID with biometric indicators? What’s that acronym I keep seeing here?
Oh yeah. FUBO!!!!!!
“Papers, please” used to be a codeword for the worst communist dictatorships.
Let’s call it a voter ID card. Can’t vote without it and also records if a person voted so no double dipping.
then I want the Federal Government to stay the hell out of my personal life...I'll pay what I owe and nothing more...I am so sick of this bunch of thugs and crooks running this country...demand voter ID...and one vote per person...
There’s a passport ID card. Isn’t that what they want. Or did I just pay $20 for crap?
Yeah...well I WANT Democrats to disappear....
Oh, yeah...and I WANT background checks on ALL ELECTED officials....BEFORE they are elected
WHAT IF IT CAN BE USED FOR VOTER ID? U know the Dems will be against it

I really thought ‘they’ would have brought this up when ‘we’ were really pushing the voter ID plan.
I definitely would have, it would have been a perfect time, ‘YOU want voter ID, well we will just go back to the National ID’, which (with quite a few exceptions) those of us that want voter ID don’t want a National ID...
Kind of like the R’s are (were) against abortion but also against welfare etc.....I meant the ‘irony’ is definitely there.
Of course, since I don’t want to leave ‘anyone’ out those
that think abortion is ‘fine’ also (with quite a few exceptions) think executing a mass murderer is wrong - Unless it is a crime against ‘the chosen people’ (McVeigh), then it is fine.
Also, attempt to assassinate say R. Reagan and we should let the shooter have weekends off, guarantee if someone were to try the same with the pResent occupant, it will be off to the nearest lamppost with a rope.....
What will be the rules about having it on your person? Can a computer chip make you GPS trackable?
What do they mean by “biometric”...so many questions.
I went through an INS check point in AZ and showed the passport ID card. They scaned it. I was good to go.
INS guy said: “You’re the first one today to have one.”
Where does this government oversight end and where will the American people draw the line, this far and no more!
I really did not believe the American people would sit by and be stripped searched by TSA simply because they wanted to fly to other parts of the country and the world, but, they looked the other way while the government grouped them.
I will watch and see where this National ID card will take us. I won't participate, even if it means going Gault!
If only there were a single republican with a spine, he or she could easily kill this effort.
Better, they can insure that the federal government never, ever, ever requires a national ID card.
Please keep up with the times... Th law was passed n 2005.
Already you are living on borrowed time (unless you are one of 13 states). Any day now, your right to fly can be revoked by the Feds.
Here’s the facts

The Department of Homeland Security has finally issued a statement regarding the deadline for the REAL ID Act of 2005.
The link takes s to here....
For Immediate Release
DHS Press Office
WASHINGTON On December 20, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) determined that thirteen states have met the standards of the REAL ID Act of 2005 (Act) for drivers licenses and identification cards and has granted a temporary deferment for all other states and territories.
Currently, DHS has determined that Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Maryland, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming have met the Acts requirements. The Department commends these states on the substantial progress in working toward these goals and the improvements in security for state-issued drivers licenses and identification cards since 9/11.
Other states have not provided sufficient information, at this time, for DHS to determine if they meet the Acts requirements. These states will have an opportunity to respond with additional information before DHS makes a final determination. DHS will continue to receive and review state submissions on a rolling basis.
Beginning January 15, 2013, those states not found to meet the standards will receive a temporary deferment that will allow Federal agencies to continue to accept their licenses and identification cards for boarding commercial aircraft and other official purposes.
DHSs goal is to implement the REAL ID Act, as required by law, in a measured, fair, and responsible way. In the coming weeks and months, DHS will, in consultation with States and stakeholders, develop a schedule for the phased enforcement of the Acts statutory prohibitions to ensure that residents of all states are treated in a fair manner. DHS expects to publish a schedule by early fall 2013 and begin implementation at a suitable date thereafter. Until the schedule is implemented, Federal agencies may continue to accept for official purposes drivers licenses and identity cards issued by all states.
Secure driver’s licenses and identification documents are a vital component of a holistic national security strategy. Law enforcement must be able to rely on government-issued identification documents and know that the bearer of such a document is who he or she claims to be.
The REAL ID Act, passed by Congress in 2005 enacts the 9/11 Commissions recommendation that the Federal Government set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses. The Act establishes minimum security standards for license issuance and production and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for official purposes those documents issued by a state unless DHS determines that the state meets the minimum standards.
Official purposes, as defined in statute and regulation, are accessing a Federal facility, boarding federally-regulated commercial aircraft, and entering nuclear power plants. DHS has twice modified the statutory deadline in order to allow states more time to meet the statutory requirements of the Act in a period of declining state revenues.
To assist states further in meeting this challenge, from FY2008 to 2011, DHS awarded $263 million in grants to improve the security of state identification credentials.
For more information, DHS has posted frequently asked questions on its website at http://www.dhs.gov/secure-drivers-licenses.
Show me YOURS first, Bath-House Barry, and I’ll show you mine.
Rush reported about this on his radio show last week.
He said that as part of the “immigration reform” bill, three senators on a senate committee wanted ALL workers, not just illegals, to have a card with biometrics. Rush said, “This sounds like a National ID card.”
The three senators were identified by Rush as John McCain, Lindsay Graham, and Chuckie Schumer.
Rush also added, “Mark my words, even if there is no immigration bill, they are going to push for this card.”
That's how to kill it and salt the earth.
Pass a law that says once a universal federal ID card exists, it MUST be used as a voter ID card.
No one can claim that requiring to show a card every citizen is required to have is in any way discriminatory.
It doesn't discriminate against people too poor to drive, too poor to travel outside the country, any race, ethnic group, religion (except arguably Evangelical Christians and no one care a whit about them, do they?)
The only people who couldn't get one are people who do not have the right to vote, non-citizens.
Computer chip is not trackable by GPS but it can be used to check your passage by established sensor sites, just like a toll road transponder.
Biometric means identifiable using some unique personal body characteristic like a fingerprint, iris scan, retina scan, facial recognition scan, or for democrats, absence of a detectable brain scan.
