Stop the REAL ID

The features some important articles and research on free speech and censorship issues. Recently they have addressed the REAL ID, a sort of personal mini-data base that will soon be required everywhere in the e-GulagUSA. Courtesy of the great American "liberals" and a few confused GOPers, REAL ID will be reality in the very near future:

"On March 1, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released draft regulations [PDF] for implementing REAL ID, which makes states standardize drivers licenses and create a vast national database linking all of the ID records together. Once in place, uses of the IDs and database will inevitably expand to facilitate a wide range of tracking and surveillance activities. Remember, the Social Security number started innocuously enough, but it has become a prerequisite for a host of government services and been co-opted by private companies to create massive databases of personal information."

If that doesn't bother you, you are probably as narcissistic and hypocritical as these born-again J-Edgars.
