    Events of Interest: U.S. Senate Committee Hearing on REAL ID Act (July 15)

    Tomorrow, the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs will hold a hearing, “Identification Security: Reevaluating the REAL ID Act.”

    The hearing will likely touch on the PASS ID Act, a new bill to revise the controversial REAL ID national identification system. (The REAL ID Act of 2005 mandates that state driver’s licenses and ID cards follow federal technical standards and verification procedures issued by the Department of Homeland Security.)

      This Bill is an outrage to even be presented. What ever happened to the constitution. Whatever happened to protect the rights of Americans.
      All bills of this nature must be stopped. In fact any bill further infringing on the rights of people must be stopped.

      These peoples intentions are right out of Nazi Germany. True Americans who believe in Liberty Truth and Justice, but your foot down and say NO!

      THis must be stopped, and the likes of the ones who have no respect for the constitution, liberty, equality and the right for every person to their own security and privacy. Those supporting this have overstepped your boundarys.
      So NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO to this PASS ID ACT or any other masquerading to protect the US people.
      When in effect they need protecting from the very ones proposing this.
      Homeland Security should be shut down. The only threat is the ones who created this, they are the real terrorists. We know who you all are and I for one and the majority of Americans say NO.

      The government works for us not the otherway around. We say NO to any more fascists laws being allowed on all levels.
