(CNSNews.com) – A new law in Maryland that took effect on Jan. 1 allows illegal aliens to get a driver’s licenses in the state.

Proponents of the law, passed by state lawmakers and signed by Gov. Martin O’Malley, said it would make roads safer, because illegal aliens would have to pass driving tests and could get liability insurance from insurance companies.

The Maryland Highway Safety Act allows illegal aliens to obtain a license without a Social Security number or proof of lawful residency, according to the Washington Post.

The license cannot be used for federal purposes, including entering a federal building or boarding a commercial aircraft.

Opponents of the bill said it is rewarding people who have broken the law by entering the country illegally, the Post reported on Tuesday.

One state at a time, another law “adjusted”, more benefits for illegals, will it ever stop? Why the hell do we have or need any laws any longer, no one follows or obeys them anyway. That is except you and I who came from the old school.

Sorry to burst their bubble, but it ain't going to happen. They will still drive with no license and no insurance. What idiots these people are.

Events like this support the idea that Americans no longer own, control or or even have much say in their own country.

If that idea is correct, then who does? Who or who all is in control?

Leverage is a very powerful tool, in finance, politics and life in general. With the right little piece, you can control the rest.

So...which and how many officials do you have to buy in what areas to control a country?

My guess is not very many, but selecting the right "buys" will give you near total control.

And, here we are.

The fastest way for the communists to get the illegal aliens registered to vote.

Ugh! Maryland has such potential to be a great conservative state. The schools are the best in the country, it is beautiful, roads are great and the state is in great financial shape. However, the politics are sick! Do they really think these illegals are going to get liability insurance? No way! Oh they will get the license and continue to have accidents that the citizen will have to pay because the alien doesn’t have insurance. It will happen exactly that way.

We’ll see in the statistics a couple years from now.

Backdoor amnesty. When you get a drivers license you get voter registration thanks to the “Motor/Voter” law of the Clinton era. If you can vote you have all the rights of a citizen.

Wonder how many illegal aliens are on Obamacare and do the feds really check SS numbers?.
Oh wait I forgot it’s the amnesty thingy.

At least we will know where more of them live. They might not like living on the grid.

Nothing about voting, I note...
