Real ID Act Approved By House Of Representatives - Gizmodo

I'm wondering about the political considerations of having a national id card that is so tied to strong biolgical identifying techniques like fingerprints etc.  It seems to me that being able to prove our identities s more useful to each of us than the liberties we might be forced to give up. I think criminals profit from those liberties more than law abiding citizens.  I don't know about you, but i am more scared of identity theft than i am of "big brother" seeing something that is none of his business.

But perhaps a good compromise might be to put in these laws that a citizen cannot be forced to present their identity card without due process.  A governmental agency could require the card to provide services, but then that is still volentary on the part of the citizen.
