The Power to End Real ID and National ID Mandates; Use It or Lose It


*Real ID will be evaluated in Congress next week by March 21st, 2012.

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!

Nepalese Government Minister Returns National ID Bill

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." 
Nepal is known as the "crown chakra" of planet Earth.
