A documentary I watched, called "America: Freedom to Fascism", mentioned an eventual plan for a national ID card. Thoughts on this from the collective?
This hasn’t taken place yet, obviously, and the deadline mentioned in the documentary has come and gone for the national ID card to be in place but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen. There was also mention of a possible tracking device being built into the ID card also.
Take the Patriot Act, for instance, which isn’t the most wholesome bill of goods that has ever been foisted on the American public and it is already something that has caused discomfort and uncertainty in regards to our civil liberties and rights to privacy.
We already have drivers licenses, Social Security cards, military ID’s, and other forms of identification so why would we need more and why would my government need to track all my movements? We are America, after all, and not a police state, right?
