If America implemented a National Identification and the mainstream media didn’t cover it, would it still matter? What if we told you that’s already happening?
For the first time in the nation’s history, a National ID law will take effect this year, and it will have a major impact on your life.
That’s the subject of this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio, in which Jim Harper of the Cato Institute tells us everything we need to know about the law – what it means, why we should be concerned, and how it could be used and abused in the future. Eventually, you won’t be able to fly without one.
The ID is being rolled out through a law known as the Real ID Act, and it is turning ordinary driver’s licenses into National IDs that are unlike anything we’ve seen.
That picture you get at the DMV? It’s now being stored in a database that is accessed by the federal government, and in an instant it can be matched to, say, a picture of you taken at a toll booth or in a post office. In some states, you can’t even smile for a picture – because doing so would confuse the computer.
Sadly, this isn’t fiction.
- How the government can track you using a National ID.
- How other countries have abused National IDs
- Why the Founders would have opposed a National ID.
- How the law’s text allows the DHS secretary to require IDs for entry pretty much anywhere.
If you care about freedom and privacy, you don’t want to miss this week’s episode.
