REAL ID Backers Scramble to Push REAL ID

Alice Lipowicz, writing for Washington Technology posts a story entitled Note to DHS: speed up Real ID regs

As Maine and other states dig in their heels against the Real ID Act of 2005, Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., called on the Homeland Security Department to move forward quickly to show how the program should be implemented.

Mr. Davis needs to understand that there is nothing Republican about a massive power-grab for the federal government to monitor the lives of free citizens. I am amazed that it is the Republican party that is pushing for these Orwellian measures...

People like Mr. Davis, and others, need to understand that Americans should not be tagged and tracked with biometrics. Is is an affront to anyone who cherishes Constitutional freedoms and the American heritage.

Because we "can" does not mean that we "should."
