I Think I Made Up My Mind

Moments ago I said that I thought I opposed REAL ID. Well, I think I just made up my mind. Yep, I oppose it:
DHS Assistant Secretary for Policy Stewart Baker called today for national ID checks when Americans buy prescription drugs. This is yet another in a growing list of activities that federal authorities would bring within their control should the national ID system created by the REAL ID Act be implemented.
Drivers licenses are too close to "show me your papers please" for me as it is - at least there are 50 of them. Can you imagine the shenanigans if the fed got ahold of the records?

Or maybe I'm being too naive and they already do.
