CNet is reporting that national ID cards may be effectively on the way. Frankly, I don’t get it. The article says only that states must comply with federal antiterrorist standards by 2008. It doesn’t actually say that the federal government will be implementing a national ID card. Even so, who cares?

If you have a drivers license now, there’s a strong chance you have a bar code and/or magnetic information encoded on the card itself already. So the federal government will be mandating the standard containing that information? While I think it’s probably a waste of time and resources, I just don’t get all the hubbub about privacy because it is just a standard – the state will still be controlling the process.

And assuming the process follows its logical course, and one day the federal government has accesss to all that data? It doesn’t really matter, does it? Do you really think that they don’t have access to the data now?

These cards will contain Your DNA information and basically Your whole life !!! Wouldn’t take much to delete You then would It ???They can monitor Your every move !!!The only reason We don’t have these cards already is because of the fight gun owners have put up !!! When the North American Union is formed it will be based on communist Russia !!! Remember , Once You start giving up things … Good Luck getting them Back !!! Get ready for Military Draft , Forced Vaccinations , Controlled Depopulation , Etc . . Once the Country is Poverty Stricken Control won’t be hard at All !!! We can all be Just Numbers !!!
