Status of Anti-Real ID Legislation in the States

Here is the Jurisdiction Impact Analysis Real ID Act for Tennessee. Here's the one for North Dakota.

If you're interested in where your state stands on REAL ID. Click here for information like the links above.

Also, here is an interesting blog about the issues surrounding REAL ID:
After 35 years of selling your name and personal information in the junk mail industry, I have come to the conclusion that you should have 100% control over this most valuable of possessions. For the last ten years my research has told me this is right, and now I am ready to do something about it. This BLOG is my way of paying back.- Jack Dunning

It is obvious that Mr. Dunning and I live on different political mountains, but the common ground against REAL ID and (legislation like it) makes for interesting times.

I'm conservative: trying to conserve the spirit of the Constitution (including all 10 of the Bill of Rights).

I'm for limited government: Will somebody answer me, "Why are the the Republicans riding herd on big brother legisltation?" I expected this madness to come from "the other side."

I'm for as much personal liberty as possible (combined with old-fashioned morality): To be free, we must be good. (How's that for old-fashioned). This means I'm not for bureaucratic control of individuals. Hasn't that already been tried in history and found wanting?

So, on this issue, I find common cause with more "liberal" people.

Interesting times.

Power Grab Inherent in Claims of Identity Fraud. You would not have the issue of identity theft if the socialists did not create this artifice of identity to begin with in order to practise redistribution. Under Common Law, any identity may be assumed provided it is not fraudulent. Latin casuistry disagrees because it despises our legal system.
