As usual, I disagree with Daniel Schorr. The problem is not that REAL ID is a "half-measure" that may not go far enough.
I do, however, agree with Schorr that Americans should have had the chance to fight over this bill fair and square.
The Republicans acted in an under-handed way. And the double-speak of Rep. Sensenbrenner (and other supporters of REAL ID) doesn't help the country.
So, again I ask: "What's a conservative to do with the Republicans?"
Conservatives should be conserving all the freedoms in the Bill of Rights--not undermining them.
