the only candidate against it is Ron Paul, coincidentally the only one who seems to care about any civil liberties issues. I am continually amazed by how many people seem to think there is nothing wrong with a Real ID. It is not so much the ID as it is everything that has happened before it, the military commissions act, patriot act, wire tapping, H.R. 1955 and now s1959(the most vague and worst of all) This is just a portion, really too much to list here. And now they want more authority to spy on American citizens, and immunity for the telecom companies that agree to assist. How much of this are people going to take, how much will you surrender, in the name of security? And a false sense at that. Will this ever stop? And most americans have no idea what I am talking about, it is easier to dismiss the truth.
Oh and how will this protect against Identity theft? Storing everything they need to know in one centralized location on a server probably running on windows. It is one stop shopping for hackers!
