Further erosion of Freedom and Liberty will come to your State very soon.

More Orwellian prophesy becomes reality.

___


"To comply with the 2005 Real ID Act, which the U.S. government has been slowly implementing for the past decade, citizens in a number of different U.S. states will now be forced to obtain a passport if they want to board an airplane — even for domestic flights.

The Department of Homeland Security and representatives with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection have declined to comment on why certain states have been singled out, but starting in 2016, residents of New York, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and American Samoa will need a passport to fly domestically. All other states will still be able to use their state-issued driver’s licenses and IDs — for now, at least.

According to the fine print, not all 50 states have driver’s licences that meet the Real ID requirements, which could possibly explain why the aforementioned regions will not qualify in 2016. However, there is no specific mention of what the requirements actually are.

The Real ID act has been controversial since its initial proposal over ten years ago and is seen by many as a massive violation of privacy. One of the primary reasons it has taken the government so long to roll this program out is that the program is wildly unpopular and creates heavy backlash every time it appears in the news.

The tightening of the Real ID restrictions are seemingly intended to push people towards attaining the newly issued “enhanced ID,” which adds more unnecessary paperwork and bureaucracy to the already tedious process involved in identification applications."

They already violate your 4th amendment rights wrt searches & seizures.
So now they will remove your 1st amendment right to free association,

This bill of rights is in shreds.
No news here - move along before a drone shoots you.

Newsflash: Libertarians Shocked, Shocked! that Creating Domestic Insecurity Makes People More Willing to Give Up Freedom

In other news... Libertarians Shocked, Shocked! that Ethnocultural Diversity Makes People More Insecure


It's not like most shifts towards totalitarianism happen in a vacuum. Who could have possibly imagined that the EU flooding Europe with uppity brown Muslims would result in a resurgence of European nationalism? Who could have possibly imagined that flooding America with brown hispanics would result in a resurgence of American nationalism? Roll Eyes

Libertarians were the only people arguing against violating the Constitution all along, and none of us are shocked to see the government use any excuse to usurp more power.

Apparently you weren't shocked at all to have "Republican" G.W. Bush sign the Real I.D. act, in fact, you probably like things like that. You must if you support Trump.

If diversity makes people more "insecure", then America has never been "secure". People originally came to the American colonies from all over Europe. The original 13 States were quite diverse.

But you are shocked that people turn to government when they become insecure. Because you are dumb.

Most of the people who came to the Americas were Europeans, but their cultures and religions and political ideologies were widely diverse. That is indisputable.

What you are saying is that skin color does more to create human diversity than religion, politics and culture. That is insanely wrong.
