JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The leader of a movement against national driver’s licenses promoted legislation Tuesday that would prompt a showdown between the states and the federal government.

While some lawmakers alluded to fears of the Federal Real ID Act of 2005 as conspiracy theories, state Rep. Jim Guest, R-King City, warned that requirements that could come down from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security would put Missourians’ identities at risk, pointing to easily scannable biometric technology.

“We do not need Big Brother watching us and knowing where we are,” Mr. Guest said.

*SNIP*

Also Tuesday, Mr. Guest proposed a resolution (HCR 13) that reclaims Missouri’s sovereignty under the U.S. Constitution’s Tenth Amendment, arguing that the national government issues too many federal mandates.

I hand delivered a letter concerning this measure to my State Rep. two days ago, then at a luncheon today handed a copy of New Hampshire’s bill to another State official and asked him to have it considered.

I’ve sent three emails to my State Rep and have not received a single reply.

That conspiracy theory claim ranks right up there with calling someone racist as a means of shutting an argument down.

When I handed the copy of the bill to the official today, he opened it, glanced at the top, re-folded it and from what he said sounded like he was well aware of it. I don’t know it that is a good sign or not. I’m hoping.

A conspiracy theory is claiming there was no moon landing or that there are secret military bases on the moon. This is a legitimate concern.

Hard to say what is on their mind. Some of these Reps may not have political capital to burn. So, this kind of stuff may rattle their cage some.

I concur. The problem is most Americans are to concerned with who is the next American Idol. They don't care to know about the legitimate concerns. And their lack of concern puts all of us and our rights in jeopardy.

I did the same with the NH bill, my state senator’s aid replied, ‘thanks for the info’. My senator is a true blue conservative (he hangs out at our dump once in a while on a Saturday to talk to us). I’m sure he read it and is up on this stuff. Dittos on my state rep, no answer though, but he’s another true conservative. I also sent a copy to Sensenbrenner. I’m certain they love us!

I don’t know if you are from Indy or not, but Indiana is a State considering Sovereignty.

Nope, Wisconsin. Indy is a nickname. We live in a conservative enclave. Actually, our county had the biggest vote for Palin, 65%. Our gov, Doyle, was one of the first (maybe Arnold was first) to go to Washington begging for money. It’s truly breathtaking how the dems are pandering.

really? because I live in Indiana-who’s sponsoring it?

I know that Senator Walker (my home Senator-41 Columbus/BC) is sponsoring the “Honest Money Act” in the Senate, but I’d like to know who’s sponsoring a Sovereignty Resolution here.
