RealID passes Senate 100-0.

RealID passes the Senate 100-0. It’s pretty obvious that the senators in my state, never read my fax. The National Governor’s Association is considering a lawsuit to challenge the RealID provisions, mainly because it requires states to comply to a federal mandate (HR 1628), without providing any monetary help. Currently, the NGA is looking for at least half of the governor’s to agree that they’re not standing for these provisions.

Personal note: Say goodbye to whatever rights we did have. This along with Rosum’s new prototype technology allows Big Brother to covertly track citizens anywhere at any time. People often tell me, “I have nothing to hide.” It’s a matter of freedoms being squished out of existence.

  • Sad day in US history. This should have been debated on the floor of the Senate. I guess Terri Schiavo is more important then our liberties and freedoms.

    Yeah. Hopefully NGA kills it. For all the wrong reasons, but I hate it when they push stupid bills like this through in a large non-contested spending bills.
    This is exactly why there needs to be a balance of power when it comes to bi-partisan politics.
    Personal note. John Edwards responded to ALL of my e-mails when he was Senator. Elizabeth Dole responded to exactly “0”. As a contituent, you can tell me who I would respond to better based just on that.
