Event

 
Just to emphasize. This is big. This is the same bill that has a
clause that gives SWEEPING supra-constitutional and extra-judicial
powers to the head of the Dept. of Homeland Security (that Chertoff
guy!!!!). This is dirty and lowdown.

PLEASE FORWARD TO INTERESTED FRIENDS

House to vote on HR 418 on Wednesday. That's
tomorrow!

HR 418 would take the next step toward establishing a
national identification card, controlled by the Feds.
This is the undone part of the Intelligence
Consolidation Bill we fought just a couple of months
ago, sponsored by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner's (R-WI).

Here's how the American Policy Center described this
dangerous bill:

  * H.R. 418 would require the linking of all state
    driver's license databases -- thereby creating one
    massive database harnessing the private details of
    every U.S. citizen. It also would force all states
    to subscribe to the "Driver's License Agreement,"
    which would make the contents of this database
    available to bureaucrats in Canada and Mexico.

  * H.R. 418 would require all state driver's licenses
    to have a common machine-readable technology,
    including a digital photo of the card holder.

  * The database may grow to contain far more than
    simply information relevant to driving. H.R. 418
    gives the Secretary of Homeland Security the
    unprecedented power to dictate what data states
    collect for license holders. This could include
    virtually anything, including fingerprints
    and/or eye retina scans known as "eye-prints."

Please go to 
http://www.DownsizeDC.org and click on the link
to the top campaign on the page titled, "House to
Vote on National ID Card." Send your Representative a
message to vote NO on HR 418. Please act now. Time is
short.

IF YOU'RE USING OUR SYSTEM FOR THE FIRST TIME, YOU
MUST REGISTER. PLEASE PICK YOUR OWN MEMORABLE
PASSWORD - DON'T LET THE SYSTEM DO IT FOR YOU.

Thank you for your prompt action.

intense, there are additional actions you can take.
