Bad Legislation Affects Everyone

Editor:

The Republican-controlled congress of 2004 passed a draconian piece of legislation called “Intelligent Reform Bill,” otherwise known as the Real ID Act. Department of Homeland Security in 2005 begin issuing so called “uniformity regulations” to the sovereign states requiring that all driver’s licenses and birth certificates meet some federal standards along with biometric “security” provisions. The Real ID passed the House and Senate, but was unfunded and about a dozen states had told the feds to forget it, and since this act would not take place until 2009, little more was said, however, Arizona did pass some legislation.

Now, comes the Pass Act S 2461 with even worse technology on your driver’s license. DHS wants the license to be pretty much the same nationwide with biometrics (facial scans) Radio Frequency Identification Chips (RFID) where this will all be entered in a government database along with personal information encoded in the ID chip. Also, the government is kindly funding this for at least a while. Your identification can be scanned by any one buying a scanner and can be read through your clothes, purse or wallet. Just think of all the identity thefts that you’re going to have to fight off.

Road block check points will be set up and we the people for the first time in this Republic’s life will be required to “show your papers” just like in Stalinist Russia or Hitler’s Germany. As a citizen I do not like to be branded like cattle, with my papers and my life an open book to strangers, strangers who can do real damage to you. Is this America anymore?

The highest law of the land is the Constitution of the Untied States. The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute must be in agreement with it to be valid. Article IV of the Bill of Rights says the people are to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, ... read it for yourself.

There is a Web site called Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) where you can find the planned North American trade corridors. I read that the state of North Carolina has issued drivers licenses that now has embedded a hologram depicting the map of the North American Union. The hologram was developed by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, whose spokesman, Jason King, told columnist Jim Kouri that its “goal is to create a continental security device” that can be used by motor vehicle agencies throughout North America. Not too long ago, the Office of Management and Budget also required American business to update their “North American Industry Classification Code” to replace the Standard Industry Classification code. The new industry-coding requirement was developed jointly by the U.S., Canada and Mexico. When we speak of North America we are speaking of the three countries, in other words globalization.
