Privacy Rights Clearinghouse (PRC), one of the leading privacy advocates in the country has come out firmly against the Real ID Act. Although the deadline for state implementation has been pushed back to December 2009, PRC is trying to make it clear to the public that this law “…will increase exposure to ID theft.” In case you aren’t up to speed, the Act requires the standardization of state driver’s licenses, requiring your personal data (Social Security #, date of birth, etc.) to be captured in a huge database that can be accessed by a number of government agencies. Big Brother arrives in 2009 instead of 1984. If the Feds’ track record after Real ID is anything like it has been so far, we can expect an increase in identity theft, according to PRC. Counterfeited within hours of release, and because of the perceived reliability by crooks, the ID is gold in the hands of thieves. The cards will have a “machine readable zone” containing your personal data that could be scanned off the card by bars, merchants, even private parties. Our only hope is a new administration in the White House that realizes the sanctity of an individual’s privacy. It’s time to give consumers control over their names and personal data, and compensate them when it is sold.

When President Bush signed the REAL ID Act, He broke his oath in accordance with Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution. He said "I do (solemnly swear) (or affirm) that (I will) (faithfully execute) the office of President of the United States, (and will to the best of my ability), (preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.)"

(Perfidy implies deliberate breaking of faith or of one's pledges and promises), on which others are relying.

Our Constitution says: We have the right to be left alone without unwarranted intrusion by government, media, or other institutions or individuals.

The REAL ID ACT Kills that right!

Trespass: (A) an unlawful act causing injury to the person, property, or (rights of another), committed with force or violence, actual or implied.

(B) to encroach on a (person's privacy), time, etc.; infringe (usually fol. by on or upon).

President Bush and other Representatives of this country are trespassing on our Constitutional rights!

Injury: Law. any wrong or (violation of the rights), property, reputation, etc., of another for which legal action to recover damages may be made.

President Bush and other Representatives are injuring this country by violation of the Constitutional Rights.

Treason: (A) the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or (kill its sovereignty).

(B) (a violation of allegiance to one's sovereignty) or to one's state.

(C) the (betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith); treachery.

When President Bush broke his oath, he betrayed our trust and his promise to protect The Constitution Of The United States.

By signing the REAL ID ACT he betrayed our trust and his promise to protect The Constitution Of The United States.

Because President Bush is pushing for a North American Union He is killing this country's sovereignty.

This is my opinion. Joseph Murphy
