" Proponents of the REAL ID Act continue to make the preposterous claim
that the bill does not establish a national ID card. This is
dangerous and insulting nonsense."
- Congressman Ron Paul, May 2005
The united States (correct spelling) is now officially a police state! On 10th May 2005 *ALL* United State senators voted unanimously, without discussion or debate, and without even reading the bill -- to create a (US) national ID card. This was done when they passed the Real ID Act of 2005.
President Bush is certain to sign this bill into law shortly.
This law creates another huge bureaucracy, (ID bureau-rats - this time.) Just what you need isn't it? Another mammoth government agency to tell you what to do and how to do it, whilst taking your money under the false pretense of saving you from yourself!
RIP Amerika, former land of the free.

A personal note from the publisher:
The idea of free speech in the world is one that we hold in the highest regard. We believe in bringing our site visitors and customers the widest possible array of information that comes to our attention. We have great trust and respect for people and our worldwide audience, and believe them to be fully-capable of making their own decisions and discerning their own realities.
Among the many missives and other articles published throughout our web site, all for your perusal, there will doubtless be some that you find useless, and possibly offensive, but we believe you will be perceptive enough to realize that even the articles you disagree with have some value in terms of promoting your own further self-definition and insight. Our site is a smorgasbord of privacy and civil liberties material and products to help you keep yours. Take what you like and click or scroll past that which doesn't interest you.
We suggest you don't make 'assumptions' about our personal position on privacy issues that are discussed at our missive page and elsewhere throughout PT Shamrock's site. That is not what this site is about. Whilst we have our opinion on matters published at this site, we believe it to be unwise to sweep controversy under the carpet. We also firmly believe people should not only read material which they agree with, but read alternative news/material as well!
We strongly recommend not 'assuming' anything. Read, consider and make your own informed decisions. People 'assumed' that their government would never lie to them. It has and continues to do so. People believed that the (US) Warren Commission report was accurate. It was not, they lied to the people. People 'assumed' the Federal Government would never conduct biochemical experiments on the general populace. But it did, by the score. People 'assumed' the world was once flat.
All of the material and data offered on this site is for informational and educational purposes only. And remember: most of it is free to you, 24/7.
