Stop the National I.D. Card!

Mailed December 05, 2004 to Senators Bob Graham and Bill Nelson and Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite. First paragraph of letter taken directly from the online petition at DownsizeDC.org.

Dear Representative

The national ID database and ID card provisions in the recently passed HR 10 are intolerable to me. And the new powers granted the Attorney General are, if anything, even worse. I urge you to act now to reverse these provisions, without delay.

The National I.D. card can do nothing to counteract terrorism, it will only interfere with the lives of ordinary Americans. I do not trust the future beaurocrats to wield the power provided them in H.R. 10 responsibly and morally. I do not want the federal government maintaining a database of my private, personal information. I do not want to be required to carry a National I.D. card to travel, obtain health care, buy a gun, or get a job. I do not want the Attorney General to have the power to require my employer to submit the fingerprints and DNA of his employees to the federal government.

Furthermore, movement-tracking microchips are already being installed in passports (starting in 2005). Unless the Congress acts now, decisively, to block this trend, microchip equipped National I.D. cards will be a reality in the near future.

Please help protect Americans from the tyrannical provisions of H.R. 10. Those willing to sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

Sincerely

Mr. Spencer K. Neff

Sounds excellent, however the last sentence of your opening paragraph is repetitious.

"I urge you to act NOW to reverse these provisions, WITHOUT DELAY."



... just fyi.

Great post. Very informative. Wish I could run a blog like yours. Updating a blog regularly is not easy. An article submission site is easier to run. Set up the site and allow authors to submit articles. Keep up the good work.
