The Real ID Act is basically going to make it to U.S. citizens have to have a national ID card. Bill Sanchez, owner of the site UnrealID, says this:
We have less than 48 hours to stop our nation from having a National ID card scheme. Do we really want to have the same ID system as Communist China? I think not.
The US Senate is scheduled to vote this Tuesday on the Real ID Act. They’ve never debated the bill. Most of them haven’t even bothered to read it. Nevertheless, they’re going to pass it: unless we do something to stop them
Real ID is a very, very real national identification card.
This isn’t going to be easy, but we need to put the Senate on notice that if they vote for Real ID, they’re voting in favor of a National ID Card.
