URGENT: Oppose the latest bailout!

Quote of the Day: "Politicians are worse than thieves. At least when thieves take your money, they don't expect you to thank them for it." -- Walter Williams

Congressional leaders are calling the House of Representatives back for a special session. They want to hold one vote on one bill on Tuesday, and then leave for recess again. What is this bill? It's another bailout -- a $26 billion bailout of wasteful, incompetent state governments.

It's also a pay-off to Democratic special interests like government employee unions (but please don't think for a minute that the Republicans aren't just as bad about this kind of thing).

This bill has already passed the Senate, but it isn't necessarily certain that it can pass the House. Many House Democrats are worried about their re-election prospects, and don't want to vote for another big spending bill. For instance, here's what Collin Peterson (D-Minn) says . . .

"I don’t know how they’re going to pass it. I haven’t really checked with people, but there are a lot of guys who aren’t going to vote for it.

And, according to Politico, this kind of concern is starting to be a real roadblock for the Democratic spending orgy . . .

"Their fiscal-policy meltdown included the unprecedented failure to consider an annual budget resolution in its usual form and the approval of only two of the scheduled 12 appropriations bills prior to the August recess."

This means we have a real chance to defeat this bailout bill, but only if we register our disapproval now. Make Congress nervous about passing another bailout this close to the election. Send a letter to Congress using our No Bailouts campaign.

The hardwired message on this campaign says "No government money, whether borrowed or taxed, should ever be used to bail out private financial interests, or wasteful state governments."

You can copy or borrow from my sample letter for you own personal comments . . .

Please vote against the $26 billion bailout for state governments. The voters and politicians of these states will never learn to behave prudently if you bail them out. What they need to do instead is cut spending. They need to make choices, instead of expecting the rest of us to pay for their incompetence and irresponsibility. On top of which . . .

I have a strong suspicion that a heaping helping of this $26 billion is simply a pay-off to Democratic constituencies. Well, every member of Congress should remember lessons such as the Cornhusker Kickback. You aren't necessarily going to be loved for playing politics the way it used to be played. Voters in your district are very likely to punish you if you vote yes on this bill. So do yourself a favor . . .

VOTE NO!

END LETTER

You can send your letter using our Educate the Powerful System.

And please alert others about this issue. A vote will likely happen in the next 24 hours.

Have a Gold Star on Your Drivers License? You win a Prize.

Remember when you were in grade school and you got a gold star for doing well on your test? Well the states that are Real ID compliant are moving forward with the same concept. Show us your papers, let us scan them, put them into a national database along with your biometric photograph that can be read from any face recognition tracking software and you get a gold star.
Florida Drivers License Gold Star Real ID

Whats the big deal? You get a gold star for being a good little sheeple even if you don't know it. Of course your state DMV will get an award for putting all that data into a national database as is the case for the state of Florida. You can see the gold star on the FL Drivers License if you have received one recently or see an example on the Florida DMV web site.

But the Real ID will certainly keep you safe from terrorists? If people really believe that then why didnt Michael Chertof the former Secretary of Homeland Security? He basically asserts that the only real good from Real ID will that it will stop college students who are underage from buying alcohol. I don't think it will even help that. A college student who wants to get alcohol will get alcohol.

It will stop illegal immigrants from getting drivers licenses.Wrong again Real Id has a provision that will allow states to issue Real ID compliant licenses to illegal immigrants.

My information is safe with the DMV...DMV has secure databases and their employees are screened to prevent theft of your birth date, mothers maiden name, social security number, address and medical information. You cannot honestly believe that.

Just visit the archives of this web site to see all of the hacked databases. visit www.epic.org and see all the database and record breaches that have happened since Real ID was enacted. Nearly 500 million and growing! Not to mention all of the abuses from police officers to DMV employees stealing and abusing your information. Hey times are tight and selling data is big business.

Check out some of the most recent headlines
DMV employees suspended, written up, retire
14 NC DMV Workers Disciplined For Accepting Gifts
Former deputy charged with computer crime still working with county computer system
FBI Investigating Mother, Son In Elderly Fraud Scheme

Those stories are all from the state of NC and there are hundreds and hundreds of these stories all around the country.

Well the Drivers Privacy Protection Act will help secure our private information. Wrong! This Act actully allows the DMV to sell, rent or lease all of your information to private corporations and a judge recently held that "Companies Can Buy Bulk DMV Records"

That's right, companies from the US and abroad can buy your information and do with it as they please. Guess what, it doesn't prevent companies form sharing your information overseas to places like India and other underdeveloped nations that have low paid staff.

The Real ID actully makes you more vulnerable to id theft and will only get worse as more DMV's central their data and share that information via internet connections with other state DMV's and the Federal Government.

Of course, many states have refused to accept the gold star and with good reason. More are expected to refuse compliance as the deadline moves forward.

Now in a twist or irony, the gold star was once used as an id system in Nazi Germany, each prisoner in the concentration camp received their star and color codes depending on the reason they were there. For example they would get the color red if they were Political enemies
or purple if they were Jehovah's Witnesses.

One of the companies that is creating the Real ID for the states like, Florida, Nevada (optional) and North Carolina is L-1 Identity solutions / Viisage.

The Real ID Act is completely voluntary, but those who refuse give up essential liberties and those who accept, give up their right to privacy and endanger their identities. You don't have to get a Real ID if you don't want one, but you will not be able to obtain healthcare, bank, shop or even get on the internet in the near future.

This seems to be the marketing plan for the company producing the Real ID Card in North Carolina and many other states. L1 Identity Solutions, the same company producing the National ID Card for China, is pushing this agenda.

In their 2007 investor’s package, they reveal just how much potential earnings there are for identifications like the Real ID and the number is in the billions.

They list potential uses for the Real ID well beyond law enforcement issues and Department of Homeland Security uses. They envision a future where you need your national ID card for Financial, Healthcare and Transportation.

Beyond that they show commercial uses for the identification such as m-commerce which means your cell phone, PDA and other handheld devices used to buy things on the web. Under those guidelines, if you do not have a Real ID, you cannot buy anything.

Likewise, they list e-commerce or shopping online from your home computer. But this isn’t enough. They also suggest you have a Real ID to access the internet.

Sounds bad, but wait there’s more. Their chart envisions a future, where you have to present your National ID Card for all transactions. No card, no gas, no food, no rights.

The chart below is taken from L-1 Identity Solutions 2007 Investors package and clearly shows what plans they suggest for their technology.

L-1 Identity Solutions Viisage

L-1 Identity Solutions / Viisage even suggests using your National ID / Real id as your voter id card with your party affiliation on it. Perhaps they will want you to list your religion as well, like the Communist Chinese do.

Both Democrats and Republicans have done nothing to stop this massive system form going into place in many states like North Carolina who will happily accept any monies the Federal Government will give them in order to enhance their system including 3-D imaging.

You can take the gold star if you want to, but many are refusing and risking everything by driving without a valid drivers license because they do not want to risk being put into a massive database, being tracked and living like prisoners in the land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

As for me, I will continue to work with politicians to get the National ID/ Real ID repealed.

Claire McCaskill on Missouri’s anti-ObamaCare vote: Message received

No no, just kidding. She did say that, but naturally the message that voters sent somehow isn’t the message that’s landed in her inbox. As she understands it, the message from last night is, “We’re still too ignorant and/or partisan to understand how great ObamaCare is.” Which fits right in with how she’s spun this boondoggle all along: It’s not the law itself that’s the problem, it’s the fact that Democrats “overpromised” on it. Poor liberals, forever having their ingenious policies tripped up by inept “messaging.”

Good news, though, I guess, for any Missouri voters who meant to signal that their opposition to ObamaCare shouldn’t be taken seriously: Your elected representative has heard you loud and clear.

McCaskill said she understood what Missouri voters had been trying to say about the healthcare reform law for which she had voted in the Senate. But the centrist senator downplayed the vote as a result of heavy Republican primary turnout and a lack of education about the effects of the law.

“I certainly noticed the vote on Prop C, the healthcare law, and: message received,” she said Wednesday in a conference call with state reporters.

“I think there has been … a lot of noise about the mandate that people have gotten so focused on that they don’t realize that there’s going to be more access and affordability and more choices,” she said.

High Republican turnout did contribute to the size of the landslide, but as both Ed and Michael Tanner explained this morning, even a unanimous vote on the GOP side couldn’t have gotten you to 71 percent overall. A lot of indies and Democrats — specifically, Democrats motivated enough to vote in a primary — had to be onboard to push past the supermajority threshold. No wonder Newsweek’s spinning as hard as it is to turn last night into some sort of grand defeat for tea partiers: When you’ve got enough bipartisanship on a core tea-party plank to crack 70 percent in a swing state, you’d better work overtime on the “messaging.”

In fairness to McCaskill, she did mention in passing on today’s conference call that there’s a lot of work to do on “the provisions of the law,” not just in making sure that the benighted doofuses who voted on Proposition C fully understand it. Exit question: Does that mean she’ll join the GOP next term in trying to repeal the mandate? Since, you know, the message has been received and all.

Will the Show-Me State Show Us How to Nullify ObamaCare?


Will the Show-Me State Show Us How to Nullify ObamaCare?

Michael Tennant | The New American
Sunday, 01 August 2010

The growing movement for state nullification of ObamaCare may get another boost on August 3. Missouri’s primary election, to be held on Tuesday, August 3, includes a ballot question asking voters if state law should be amended to “deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private insurance or infringe upon the right to offer or accept direct payment for lawful health care services.”

According to a July 31 New York Times report, the initiative is part of a campaign by a conservative group called the American Legislative Exchange Council, which has already succeeded in getting similar measures enacted by legislatures in Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, and Virginia. In addition, Arizona and Oklahoma have state constitutional amendments to nullify the individual mandate on their November general election ballots. (Florida had one as well, but a judge threw it off the ballot because he thought the wording of the amendment’s explanation was misleading.)

Missouri’s question ended up in the primary election as a result of a compromise between Republican and Democratic state legislators. Explains the Times: “The Democrats agreed not to filibuster if the referendum was held during the August primary rather than the November general election, said State Senator Jane Cunningham, a Republican who sponsored the bill. With an open seat for the Senate on the line, the Democrats did not want to encourage heavy turnout among conservatives in November.” The referendum approach also had the advantage of not requiring the Democratic governor’s signature, unlike actual legislation.

The Times reports that the campaign in favor of Proposition C, as the referendum is known, “has been a low-key affair, with no television advertising, debates or celebrity Facebook endorsements.”

A group known as Missourians for Health Care Freedom, says the paper, “raised $75,000 as of July 24, enough for radio advertising, yard signs and get-out-the-vote telephone banks, but not enough for television commercials.” The group’s radio ad asks, “Do you think Washington knows what’s best for you and your family?”

Meanwhile, adds the Times, “The only organized opposition — beyond a Facebook page — has been mounted by the Missouri Hospital Association, which has spent more than $400,000 to send mailings to hundreds of thousands of homes, according to financial disclosure reports. The brochures warn that approval of Proposition C could burden hospitals, and their insured patients, with the cost of uncompensated care for people without health coverage.” A spokesman for the hospital association told the newspaper, “There’s an argument that a vote for Proposition C is a vote in support of freeloaders,” though he admitted that “we don’t want it perceived that we’re opposing it.”

Interestingly, while the hospital association, which stands to benefit financially from ObamaCare, is opposing Proposition C, the Missouri State Medical Association, which represents doctors, is supporting it. Doctors, of course, recognize many of the inherent problems with ObamaCare, most especially its rending of the doctor-patient relationship and replacing it with a bureaucrat-patient relationship — and all the additional red tape it means for their offices.

As a full-throated supporter of ObamaCare, the Times does its best to minimize the importance of the referendum and to portray it as nothing but a GOP ploy. The very first paragraph of the Times’ supposedly objective story declares that the vote “seems likely to be a low-turnout affair among an electorate dominated by Republican primary voters and conservative activists.” It later says the referendum “is seen as an organizational test for the Tea Party and like-minded conservatives” and quotes the executive director of the Missouri Democratic Party, who claims the proposition is “a ploy by the Republicans to get their base excited.”

Undoubtedly politics plays into it — indeed, as mentioned above, the very timing of the referendum was the result of a political deal — but surely the fact that a significant number of voters and state legislators believe that their state needs to take a stand against overweening Washington control suggests that there is more to it than simply politics.

Speaking at a rally for Proposition C, State Senator Jim Lembke, a Republican, indicated what that “more” is: “This health care thing is just a vehicle, a vehicle for the debate about what is the role of the federal government and what is the role of the states.” That is, does the Constitution — particularly the Ninth and Tenth Amendments — really mean what it says, or can the federal government overrule it simply by passing a law?

Clearly not everyone thinks the Constitution should be declared legally dead yet. The Times notes that “elected officials in 22 states, almost all Republicans, have filed lawsuits challenging the so-called individual insurance mandate. Among them, Virginia has made a direct claim that the federal law conflicts with its own 2010 statute, which asserts that residents of the commonwealth cannot be compelled to obtain health insurance.” Missouri’s own lieutenant governor, a Republican, is the most recent state official to file suit against the mandate.

The virtue of state legislation, as opposed to lawsuits, is that it can also prevent states from enacting their own individual mandates if ObamaCare is declared unconstitutional or is repealed. Recall that the Missouri question asks for state law to deny “the government” — all levels, not just the federal — the authority to force people to buy health insurance.

Of course, as opponents of Proposition C pointed out to the Times, even if the proposition passes, it doesn’t mean Missouri law will actually change to reflect that. It is merely a statement by the voters that the law should be amended to nullify the individual mandate; it doesn’t force the state to do so.

Still, as the paper says, supporters of the proposition believe that “a substantial victory … will convey a message of discontent with expansive federal government and rally other states and candidates to press the issue through the fall campaign.”

As one who would like to see many other states follow the lead of those who have already voted to nullify at least part of ObamaCare, this author says to Missourians: Show me how it’s done on Tuesday.

Why does Senator Claire McCaskill & Fellow Democrats Hate the Constitution?

Senator Clair McCaskill and her fellow Democrat Senators with the exception of Sen Harry Reid who is doing all he can to save his job this year voted to support the Disclose Act. Of course it sounds like a good idea.

"A bill to amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to prohibit foreign influence in Federal elections, to prohibit government contractors from making expenditures with respect to such elections, and to establish additional disclosure requirements with respect to spending in such elections, and for other purposes. http://tinyurl.com/33xo4gw"

However, when you get to the meat of the legislation, you learn that this legislation is nothing more than to shut up grassroot organization from speaking up and holding legislators accountable for their support of socialist legislation like Obamacare , Cap & Trade and bailouts that cost We the People ore than just tax dollars.

Americans will speak up against the likes of Claire McCaskil. Unfortunately for the people of Mo, she will be in office until 2012 and by then she will hope that people will forget how she ignored the majority of her constituents on Obamacare, the bailouts and the disclose act that would help preserve her fellow Democrats jobs.

We the People do not care if you call yourself, Republican, Democrat or Independent, if you are not listening to us, then we will vote you out. We will speak up, we will gather together and we will defeat you at the polls.

STAND UP, SPEAK UP, LIVE FREE!

Senate Scheduled to Vote on Free Speech Stranglehold Bill

Senate Scheduled to Vote on Free Speech Stranglehold Bill
-- DISCLOSE Act Vote Set For Tuesday

Monday, July 26, 2010

Just as gun owners are engaged in the intense battle over anti-gun Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) introduced a new version of a bill that will gut the First Amendment rights of groups like GOA.

The so-called DISCLOSE Act, which passed the House last month, puts severe and unconstitutional limits on our ability to hold individual congressmen accountable in the weeks leading up to an election.

Chuck Schumer, who would like to do away with the Second Amendment, is now also trampling all over the First Amendment as a way to protect himself and his anti-gun colleagues from voters like you.

You may recall that the DISCLOSE Act passed the House only after a controversial carve-out was added to exempt the NRA from the bill's provisions. Unfortunately, the NRA -- which had originally opposed the bill because it was unconstitutional -- withdrew its opposition after the carve-out was inserted.

The exemption was maintained in the Schumer version of the bill.

Ironically, while the bill is called the DISCLOSE Act, Schumer and Majority Leader Harry Reid are using the rules of the Senate to bypass any committee hearings -- where the merits of the bill could be debated and the American people could see just how the Constitution is being undermined.

The bill will most likely come to the floor on Tuesday afternoon, where it will take 60 votes to "close off debate" on the measure.

So it is imperative that Second Amendment supporters contact their two Senators right away and urge them to oppose the DISCLOSE Act.

Some Senators may complain that this is not a Second Amendment issue. To the contrary, if GOA is hindered in communicating to the public about members of Congress and legislation they may be voting on, that undermining of the First Amendment will certainly have an effect on the Second Amendment.

The type of speech GOA is involved in -- political speech -- is first and foremost what the framers of the Bill of Rights had in mind when they wrote that "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech."

Please urge your Senators to protect ALL of your constitutional liberties.

ACTION: Please contact your Senators and urge them to oppose the new version of the Disclose Act. You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

----- Pre-written letter -----

Dear Senator:

I stand with Gun Owners of America in opposing Senator Schumer's new version of so-called DISCLOSE Act.

It is outrageous that the House of Representatives passed this legislation with a deal to exempt certain large organizations from its terms. This smacks of the money-for-votes fiasco which helped grease the skids for passage of ObamaCare and which has already lowered Congress' reputation to unprecedented depths.

I was glad to see that Senator Mitch McConnell blasted this deal, which was especially aimed at carving out special exemptions for the NRA leadership in exchange for their promise to sit on their hands and not oppose the DISCLOSE Act. "If there is one thing Americans loathe about Washington, it's the backroom dealing to win the vote of organizations with power and influence at the expense of everyone else," McConnell said.

"Just as it wasn't the Democrats' money to offer in the health care debate, free speech isn't theirs to ration out to those willing to play ball -- it's a right guaranteed."

Another irony with the whole process surrounding this legislation is that while the bill is called the DISCLOSE Act, Sen. Schumer and Majority Leader Harry Reid are bypassing the committee process -- where the merits of the bill could be debated and the American people could see just how the Constitution is being undermined.

Gun Owners of America represents hundreds of thousands of Second Amendment supporters. Any bill that hampers the right of groups like this to communicate with the public is also an attack on my rights.

Please vote NO on Sen. Schumer's DISCLOSE Act.

Sincerely,

____________________

Do You Care About Your Liberties?

Some will say that we don't have many liberties left and not doubt they are correct in some ways.

But how many actually care about preserving what we have and restoring what we are rightfully entitled under the US Constitution?

It is shameful in a way that people will complain about the condition of our nation and the loss of our freedoms, but will do absolutely nothing more.

I have heard people say, "you cant defeat them using the political process" and "You cannot defeat them in the courts."

That type of mindset will only lead to frustration and I tend to believe that people who live their lives believing their is nothing we can do are either provocateurs, saboteurs or cowards.

Yes, there are people who call themselves anarchists who enjoy provoking law abiding citizens to breaking the law and then there are those who want to sabotage your efforts because they fear you are making advances. Finally the cowards will sit at home and whine and complain but do not have the courage to stand up and speak up about those things they deem are wrong with this nation.

Face it, it you are truly concerned about the loss of liberty, you will get involved in the political process and if need be the judicial as well.

Run for office, start, class action lawsuits, get behind a candidate that will preserve and restore liberty. We must strive to take our country back one city, one county and one state at a time.

Kagan Hearings Are Over -- Vote Coming! TELL YOUR SENATORS NO WAY

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to send the nomination of Elena Kagan to the full Senate floor on Tuesday.

The 13-6 vote was not a surprise. Democrats outnumber Republicans 12-7 on the committee, and their ranks include the anti-gun extreme wing of their party, such as Charles Schumer, Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin.

Six Republicans opposed Kagan, with only turncoat Lindsey Graham of South Carolina voting to confirm the anti-gunner.

As this important battle moves to the Senate floor, it is important to keep the heat on all Senators -- especially Democrats coming from rural states who claim to support the Second Amendment.

If a handful of these Senators vote NO on Kagan, her confirmation could be defeated.

While Kagan does not have a record of judicial opinions, her views on the Second Amendment are no mystery. Some things that have come to light since her nomination include:

* While serving in the Clinton administration, Kagan drafted an executive order to ban certain semi-automatic firearms;

* As a law clerk, she advised against the Supreme Court considering Sandidge v. United States in a case that questioned the constitutionality of the D.C. gun ban, writing that she was "not sympathetic" to the gun owner's Second Amendment claims; and

* Kagan was also part of the Clinton team that pushed the firearms industry to include gun locks with all gun purchases and was in the Clinton administration when the President pushed legislation that would close down gun shows.

During her hearings, Kagan ducked and dodged questions about the Second Amendment, and she refused to declare whether she believes the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

Kagan insisted that the Supreme Court decisions in Heller and McDonald are precedent and "settled law," but this in no way precludes her from ruling that almost any gun law -- including gun owner registration, purchasing limits, waiting periods, private sale background checks, and more -- are consistent with the Constitution.

Recall the confirmation hearings of Sonia Sotomayor, the newest Supreme Court Justice. Sotomayor assured the Senate, and the American people, that she accepted the Court's ruling in Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

Yet, in the McDonald case, Sotomayor joined the dissent in writing that "I can find nothing in the Second Amendment's text, history, or underlying rationale that could warrant characterizing it as 'fundamental' insofar as it seeks to protect the keeping and bearing of arms for private self-defense purposes."

Now Kagan has made the same promises to the Senate, but the available evidence portrays her as a forceful advocate of restrictive gun laws and driven by political considerations rather than the rule of law.

As GOA attorney William J. Olson, who testified at the hearings, noted: "If [Kagan] were to go on the Court, with what we know about her now, she could be the most anti-gun justice on that Court."

There is NO WAY any Senator who claims to support the Second Amendment could vote to confirm anti-gun radical Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States!

ACTION: Please urge your two Senators to oppose the confirmation of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

Take Action - Keep the Heat on Senator Reid!

Only July 15th, GOA members rallied behind U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle, who's taking on anti-gun Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada.

While Reid claims to support your gun rights, our alert highlighted 42 Reasons why Harry Reid MUST be defeated.

Well, that list has now grown as two additional anti-gun votes were added.

In March of this year, Sen. Reid voted against an amendment offered by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) to prevent Veterans from losing their Second Amendment rights without due process of law.

The amendment was offered to the massive ObamaCare bill, which Reid was so intent on passing that he wouldn't allow a pro-gun amendment to get in his way.

And in November of last year, Reid voted to confirm the highly controversial Richard Hamilton to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Hamilton has stated that the Founding Fathers intended judges to amend the Constitution through "evolving case law."

So, you can now view the 44 Reasons why Harry Reid MUST be defeated!

And while you're there you can now also vote in a GOA Poll to let us know whether you think Harry Reid is pro- or anti-gun.

But there's more that we all must do to win this important race. Please forward this alert to as many freedom-loving Americans as you can and urge them to support Sharron Angle.

Harry Reid's goal is to raise $25 million in this race against Sharron Angle.

That means it's crucial for one million pro-gun Americans to send Sharron Angle $25. If one million of us from across the country chip in, Sharron will match Reid's campaign war chest and WE WILL WIN!

So please, urge all your friends, gun club members and other pro-gun groups to go to www.sharronangle.com and make a contribution.

Contributions by check can also be mailed to:

Friends of Sharron Angle
PO Box 33058
Reno, NV 89533

There is no race in the country more important than this one. If any gun owner or sportsman has any doubt if Reid is pro-gun or anti-gun, just read the 44 Reasons to Defeat Reid, then decide, and also take the GOA Poll.

Thank you again for standing with Gun Owners of America and Sharron Angle and for forwarding this is email to as many pro-gunners as you can.

Sincerely,

Tim Macy
Vice Chairman

Trust us, We will Protect Your Data, We're from the Government

Trust us, We will Protect Your Data, We're from the Government. I've heard that one time too many. I could go on and on about examples of the government who is entrusted with some of our most intimate details have lost confidence since the passage of Real ID

You can see many examples of personal data from medical records, bank, universities and more, lost lap tops, stolen data from workers, data breaches, lost backup tapes and much much more at www.privacyrights.org Beth Givens has dedicated a great deal of time and effort to ensure that your information is kept private and only used for the purposes for which you have provided it to various businesses.

Congress when they passed the Real ID in 2005 knew full well the American People would not be deceived into accepting a national ID card. But they touted the Real ID as a means to protect us from terrorists and to ensure that our drivers licenses' would be secure.

So along with the Real ID Act of 2005, one piece of additional legislation was to be adapted to protect our identifying information. It is known as the Drivers Privacy Protection Act or DPPA. This piece of legislation not only does not protect our private information, but it actually allows the DMV to sell, share or rent any and all of your data to private corporations for whatever they want to do with it.

The Data that can be shared
Name,
Complete Address
Date of Birth
Socialist Security Number
Your Photo
Medical Information
Any other information you may have provided such as immigration documents, birth certificates and marriage records.

The 5th Circuit court of Texas just ruled that Companies Can Buy Bulk DMV Records

"Private companies can use this information to prevent insurance fraud, verify a worker's driver's license, notify the owner of a towed or impounded vehicle, and conduct research and surveys, among other permissible uses. Government agencies, law enforcement officers and licensed private investigators are also authorized to use DMV records.

The panel concluded that it's legal for someone to buy DMV records in bulk "for the purpose of making permissible actual use" of those records, "even if that person does not actually use every single item of information therein.

Defendants included research companies, online database operators, grocery chains, insurance companies, employee screening services, technology businesses and consulting companies."

I toured NC and spoke to many groups and churches about the dangers of Real ID and the Drivers Not so Private Privacy Protection Act.

Perhaps, people will listen now. Perhaps, they will urge their legislators to stop this madness, or perhaps instead vote in those who will repeal or re-write this law to include some real protections for Americans, or perhaps Americans will remain silent on the issue and become the easy target of identity thieves.
