“These are serious Constitutional and security issues and Senators should have an opportunity to consider and debate the merits of this program and proposed change,” Merkley told POLITICO in a statement. “The Senate has now had months to bring this program to the floor. It would be wrong if we get to the point where an extension of this vast surveillance program is jammed through without debate.”

“It has come to this, there are now situations in which either one allows a probe to be jammed up one’s anus to prove “I have nothing to hide,” or one is to be considered a terrorist. Spyware is probably on our computers feeding information back to the NSA, DHS, ATF, FBI, CIA and other secretive agencies. Billions of phone calls and emails are stored daily on the supercomputers of the NSA so Big Brother can see what we’ve said or typed.
In Orwell’s worst nightmare he never pictured that a world leader would be making lists of people to be murdered by flying robots without offering evidence, charges or a trial. That transnational corporations would treat governments as subservient contractors. Or that our fingerprints, faces and DNA could be captured without our knowing about it, and reduced to digital data on massive supercomputers, for secret purposes, in our increasingly secretive government.”

REPRESENT YOURSELF, BECAUSE HALF THE NATION CAN’T BE WRONG
States have systemically rejected Real ID in at least 25 States; while regulatory compliance for the lesser known EVVE program has crept into many States. DHS will continue to encourage citizens to “check themselves” in the E-Verify’s cloud system online. Privacy and digital security experts say you cannot really be protected in the cloud from identity theft or hacks. Ground network security for existing DMV information becomes irrelevant, if a city worker commits fraud or if systems were never improved to protect the increased storage of sensitive information required for Real ID compliance today.
Congress does not currently have a positive track record to represent your interests without your input. Unless you want the interests of Big Data and eugenics driven groups like Secured ID Coalition, Numbers USA and the Center for Immigration Studies to decide if you have identity rights, you had better speak up for yourself!
Resist national identity mandates to work, to travel, to use online services or behave normally in American society by adding your name to this petition and circulating it to friends!
BTC – Nepal under the boot of China has had troubled times, expressing duress from national ID mandates.
“A study by human rights watchdog Privacy International found “claims of police abuse by the way of the cards in virtually all countries” that use cards. Following concerns over national security in the recent Machine Readable Passport (MRP) debacle, anxiety about privacy is not far behind here. “We will have to pay special attention to how the data is stored and protected,” warns Dinesh Thapa of Privacy Nepal.”
