The War on Freedom that was declared with
the passage of an intelligence reform bill in December places our
protected liberties into the crosshairs of the Big Brother.
The bill calls for minimum federal
standards for state driver licenses, a step toward a national
identification card. Such licenses could be required at checkpoints
on all major roads.
In the future, we will be asked to prove
our identity at toll road checkpoints using some form of a federal
What is a national ID card? Well in
Fallujah, Iraq they require one biometric scan and a photo ID. The
options of biometric scanning included blood sampling, retina
scanning, or fingerprinting. It has been reported by main stream
media that families returning to Fallujah who do not have the
official ID card and are unable to properly identify themselves have
Many constitutional republicans are
strongly opposed to the Soviet socialization of this Republic of the
United States of America. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) released a
statement on his House Web site denouncing the potential for a
national ID card.
"A national identification card, in
whatever form it may take, will allow the federal government to
inappropriately monitor the movements and transactions of every
American," Paul said. "History shows that governments inevitably use
such power in harmful ways. The 9-11 commission, whose
recommendations underlie this bill, has called for internal
screening points where identification will be demanded. Domestic
travel restrictions are the hallmark of authoritarian states, not
free nations. It is just a matter of time until those who refuse to
carry the new licenses will be denied the ability to drive or board
Our government was established to protect
our liberty and natural rights. My thoughts are summed up by one of
"National ID cards are not proper in a

federal government should never be allowed to demand papers from
American citizens, and it certainly has no constitutional authority
to do so."
Unconstitutional checkpoints that violate
our 4th Amendment rights to be secure in our persons and papers are
illegal and oppressive. I hope that 2005 is a year in which we
exercise and promote our rights.
If our government wants to remove our
liberties, then we need to use our Constitution to protect our
freedom. Any laws contrary to or not in line with the Constitution
are null and void. We determined that a long time ago in Marbury v
Call your state representatives and voice

Alex Jones, a syndicated radio talk show
host whose show is broadcast on www.infowars.com, called the bill's
passage "the most draconian legislation in history to be rolled out
onto the people, dwarfing Byzantine France and Spain."
After all, John Locke once said, "The end
of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge
