Yeah, because my drivers license, birth certificate, passport just aren’t enough. I
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.
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...
Yeah...well I WANT Democrats to disappear....
Oh, yeah...and I WANT background checks on ALL ELECTED officials....BEFORE they are elected
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.

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.”
I love it....Obama voters can’t figure out how to get an I.D. card, free, from their DMV so they can vote...but now a National I.D. card will be mandatory....but how will they be able to get to the I.D. center????if they’re disabled, will someone come to their homes????if they’re unemployed, will someone else pay their way to the office???I think that we need a new program to insure that all people can get to the I.D. office to get their cards!!
If they pass amnesty they won’t mind if it’s required to vote.
Course they’d say it’s a state issue as states are in charge of determining how their citizens vote.
“Show me your papers” tactics are associated with totalitarian regimes, not Free Republics.
Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave
o’er the land of the free . . . . . . . ?
The government wants whatever you and I work and earn for ourselves because that's what governments do. It doesn't think we are entitled to anything it doesn't give us after first taking everything we have, then telling us what we will get, if it doesn't change its mind!
Doesn't anyone besides me, think the government is way far out of kilter?
It is "we the people" who are the real owners of this country (as Clint Eastwood so eloquently pointed out at the RNC Convention) and we'd best be about trimming "the government" Leviathian down to the only size proscribed by those who knew what an enemy a government would become, if given the chance.
Our founders knew that a government with boundless "rights" over its citizenry would become a dictatorship of evil tyrants!
I, for one, think that is exactly what we have!
This is something that a free nation DOES NOT NEED!!
An ENSLAVED nation, howeverm requires it so the tyrants can sleep well at night knowing exactly where the slaves are!!

I already have one. It's called a passport.
If it's good enough for all the other countries on the planet, why isn't it good enough here?
Let's require all voters to show a passport to vote.
In fact, that was one of my first vanities back in 2001 or 2002, but sadly it was lost in one of the early database crashes.
And what’s the point?
We have a Birth Certificate, Social Security Cards, Driver’s Licenses and Passports. We have a President with dubious Birth Certificates, Illegals who freely use stolen or forged Social Security Cards, and Libtard States who issue State Drivers’s licenses. With these bogus documents, anyone can get a US Passport.
So, if Congress decides to mandate yet another form of ID, it’s just a matter of months before the libtards demand that Illegal Aliens be granted this ID card too.
