Ultimate Police State Weapon: A National ID

pcPrepare yourself for a startling revelation.  The GOP is willing to once again  trash the U.S. Constitution, for our own good, of course.

Shortly after Obama’s reelection, the left began salivating for its ultimate police state weapon –  A National ID Card for all Americans.    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who is leading the Democrats immigration push,   told NBC News that one of his top priorities was to “make sure that there is a non-forge-able document” for all employees.  Then he let the cat out of the bag – the left has little GOP opposition. “We’re going to have to come up with something, but the principle we all agree on.”

Senator “I Don’t Care That Everyone Knows I’m A Progressive” John McCain (R-Ariz.) told  Politico  that he was for “a super Social Security card that would have some sort of biometric things like a fingerprint in it.”   Sen. Lindsay Graham,  (R-S.C.) another of our favorite GOP lefties, and a longtime supporter of national ID — agrees. “You’ll have documents that can’t be faked,” he told CBS News after the election.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) have  already created their own version of a National ID card –  an electronic National ID called electronic employment verification (EEV).    The current rendition is known as E-Verify, which has combined DHS’s immigration database with the SSA’s database, containing your name, address, legal status, work authorization, and social security number.

The Senate version of  its open border bill that they laughingly call  immigration reform  will mandate that all employers use E-Verify to check the immigration status of their employees.   Currently,  employers can voluntarily submit the employee’s name and number to check if they match the name and number in the system.   Once a National ID card has been implemented, verification of every employee will be mandatory.

This new ID is being sold as a means to keep our borders safe and to ensure that while it isn’t likely, if more illegal aliens walk across the border they will not be able to work in America.  BULL!

It is a surveillance tool that the left desperately needs in order to further enslave Americans.  A National ID is more than just a card with a name and number — it is a system.   In order for the system to work, the card must contain biometric information: pictures, fingerprints, retina scans, DNA and whatever else DHS Napolitano dreams up.  And, it will require a national data base continually updating our personal and private information so that the government can track our every move.

The Police State offers  assurances that the National ID card would not  need to  be shown every time you go outside — it could just be used at checkpoints, airports, and toll booths or to access the Internet, or buy firearms or prescription drugs, at  job sites, or apartment buildings, to enter your church, to buy gas, to buy food,  to access your bank account, etc.  I don’t about you, but I sure feel better!

“The 4th Amendment and the personal rights it secures have a long history.  At the very core stands the right of a man to retreat into his own home and there be free from unreasonable governmental intrustion.”    Potter Stewart
