The Liberty Committee just sent out an alert. Anymore it is rare for me to urge people to send letter and contact their congress critters or other low life people, with power over them. However this issue is one I am very passionate (and I believe rational) about. Please read the alert and decide for yourself whether you want a national ID card and database. Then do the appropriate thing. The following was my confirmation and letter from my efforts on this. Please also consider the contents of my web page on this issue.
Thank you for using The Liberty Committee Mail System

Dear [recipient name was inserted here],
Please work to have the House-Senate conference committee remove the
provisions that will create a master database on every American (H.R. 10,
section 2173) and the provision that will “standardize” or nationalize the
issuing of state driver’s licenses — an action which takes the final step
in creation a national ID (H.R. 10, section 3052).
I am a senior research scientist for Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
with a very high level security clearance[deleted on May 18, 2005 in an
attempt to please PNNL management]. I recognize the threat we are
facing from the Muslim extremists, but giving up these freedoms does not
make us safer in the long run. Please do what you can to kill this
national ID proposal. Please also see the web page I have created
addressing this threat to our freedoms.
