His administration has been caught red-handed spying on Associated Press reporters.

The IRS is just now admitting to spying on Tea Party and conservative groups — and accused of exacting political revenge on others.

Now you and I see, buried deep within the 800-plus pages of the so-called “Immigration Reform” Bill, a new biometric National ID scheme to open the door to more government intrusion the lives of every American . . .

You and I are supposed to believe neither the Obama administration nor career Washington, D.C. bureaucrats will abuse the massive new powers they crave.

But if recent history teaches us anything, it’s that they will.

That’s why I’m counting on you to

fill out your No National ID Petition IMMEDIATELY.

You see, President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have already announced “Immigration Reform” could be brought to the U.S. Senate floor in just a matter of weeks.

As I’ve said, without border security, any deal is dead on arrival.

But another — and perhaps even more dangerous — deal-breaker is the institution of a new National ID card.

Under the National ID scheme, the Department of Homeland Security would create a massive new photo database to include names, ages, and Social Security numbers of every single American.

The database would be tied to a biometric National ID card to include information like fingerprints and facial and retinal scans.

Before hiring, employers would be required to check the names against the federal database.

And if you don’t get one, you’d be barred from working legally.

Just the federal government knowing every time an American citizen applies for a job is bad enough.

How long before you’d be required to show your National ID card to rent a house, open a bank account or even buy groceries?

How long before you’d be required to be checked against the Department of Homeland Security’s National Database before you could buy a firearm?

Such a scheme is only the beginning of Washington, D.C. bureaucrats watching and cataloguing our every move.

Once armed with the knowledge of what we eat, what we drink, what we read, what we look at on the Internet and what we buy, how long until federal bureaucrats start making decisions “for our own good?”

I don’t want to find out.

If you agree, please sign your No National ID Petition TODAY.

And if you can, please agree to your most generous contribution, as well.

You see, hardly anyone in Congress is talking about the National ID portion of “immigration reform.” The national media isn’t touching it.

In Liberty,


Senator Rand Paul
