H.R. 418

This article about H.R. 418 is frightening. As you may know, H.R. 418 is a nice little law whereby the Federal "Government" tells the states that they have to issue their drivers' licenses in such a way as to make them de facto federal I.D. cards. Amusingly, the cards will state something to the effect of "This is not a national I.D. card." I take the same general tack as the author of this article. Laws such as these are so unAmerican and frightening that you can't help but laugh through your tears.

Too bad they couldn't have given this blatant assault on civil liberties a cool and identifiable name like they did the Patriot Act. I doubt it would be very successful if we could actually call it by some cute name like the "Screws" act or something like that.

If you vote, write your Congressman or Congresswoman and your Senator or Senatorwoman.
