    Unless you have been in a cave the past few years you should be well aware of the instances where our federal government has inappropriately used databases not unlike those created for a national ID purpose.

    No, it's not if it will be misused.  It is when.  And that is MORE than enough reason to oppose national IDs now.

    If we could trust the folks in government to use the information properly, I would be in favor of this.  But listen to the news almost any day and you will hear ample reason to know that we cannot trust ANY national goverment, D or R, with the ability to track our movement in this way.

    The question is not "why should we fear it?"  The question is "why should we allow it?"
