For Those Concerned About The Real ID Bill

Some time tomorrow, the Senate will vote on a bill to make a National ID card mandatory. Even if you don't oppose such a thing on principle, the specific details of this bill will do nothing to increase national security and everything to compromoise personal security, making Identity Theft that much simpler -- and making surveillance of American citizens that much easier.

The UNREAL ID web site has far more information about this bill than I could provide, and will fax a letter of your composition to your Senator, allowing you to object to this bill within this all-too-short timeframe, and request that they vote it down.
