“Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Gandhi

As the United States edges closer to becoming a third world country; anger, frustration, and cynicism continue to mount in the minds of the American population.  In fact, a recent Pew Research poll showed that 80% of baby boomers are pessimistic about America’s future.  This pessimism seems warranted as authentic political solutions appear to be in short supply in our corporate state.

The democratic political system is now clearly run by crony cartelism.  The multinational banks have hijacked the economy and are openly looting the public. Mounting and impossible-to-pay off debt is crippling local governments. The entire spectrum of our rights continues to degrade. Crimes that would land regular citizens in jail are now openly being committed by the elite and their organizations with no justice. And perhaps most telling, the power structure, is establishing a control grid to eliminate due process for the Internet and beyond to stifle any dissent. More

HOMELAND SECURITY DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES DEEPLY FLAWED  REGULATIONS FOR NATIONAL ID SYSTEM 

http://epic.org/press/011108.html http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d109:h.r.00418:Title:

To establish and rapidly implement regulations for State driver’s license and identification document security standards, to prevent terrorists from abusing the asylum laws of the United States, to unify terrorism-related grounds for inadmissibility and removal, and to ensure expeditious construction of the San Diego border fence. Sponsor: Rep Sensenbrenner, F. James, Jr. [WI-5] (introduced 1/26/2005)      Cosponsors (140) 

 In response:   Montana Governor Urges REAL ID Rebellion.  

In a letter (pdf) to the governors of 17 states, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer asked them to band together to reject the REAL ID national identification system.  “Today, I am asking you to join with me in resisting the DHS coercion to comply with the provisions of REAL ID,” Gov. Schweitzer wrote. “I would like us to speak with one, unified voice and demand the Congress step in and fix this mess.”  

On January 11, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff released the agency’s final regulations for REAL ID. The proposal has drawn sharp criticism from state governments, members of Congress, civil liberties advocates, and security experts (pdf). EPIC has called the scheme “a real danger to security and civil rights.”
