- THE PITCH
The Real ID Act was signed into law by President Bush on May 11th, 2005. This act changes the current state-issued identification system into a national one. And this means less privacy, more costs to taxpayers, and an even bigger bureaucratic nightmare.
This Act will make it easier for the National government to survey your actions under the guise of “fighting terrorism.” It would penalize individuals without IDs, such as the elderly or the millions of Americans who don’t drive/have a driver’s license.
The bottom line is this: the Real ID Act is a terrible idea.
I’m going to rip up whatever application I get from the Department of Homeland security when the act is finally enforced in 2009. But I don’t want to do it alone.
One million people refusing to comply will greatly undermine the effectiveness of the Act, and with a million we will have safety in numbers. Please join me in fighting this gross violation of our freedom and privacy.
