"The law of nature, all men are born free, every one comes into the world with a right to his own person, which includes the liberty of moving and using it at his own will. This is what is called personal liberty, and is given him by the Author of nature, because necessary for his own sustenance." --Thomas Jefferson: Legal Argument, 1770. FE 1:376
The National ID is of paramount concern to those of us who refuse to be tagged and numbered like animals. Many do not want to comply, but don't know what to do as an individual. First, this national identification is voluntary, not mandatory for the individual. However, the sinister and devious minions behind the scenes who write this legislation for our corrupt Congress added some provisions they hope will force Americans to surrender, i.e. you won't be able to fly on commercial planes, ride on Amtrak or enter a federal building. You see, these areas are under the control of the federal fist and they are counting on enough Americans who don't know what this new law says, will simply comply in order to hop on a plane or train to to see grandma or for a business requirement:
"Supporters claim it is not a national ID because it is voluntary. However, any state that opts out will automatically make non-persons out of its citizens. The citizens of that state will be unable to have any dealings with the federal government because their ID will not be accepted. They will not be able to fly or to take a train. In essence, in the eyes of the federal government they will cease to exist. It is absurd to call this voluntary." Congressman Ron Paul on HR 418
What about the states? Many have already expressed concerns that they simply don't have the money to implement this insidious and phony tool to "fight the war on terrorism." The National Governors Association, National Conference of State Legislatures and the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators indicated in a recent report that the costs of reissuing drivers licenses to conform to this national identification within the recommended time, the on-site verification procedures and other requirements will run the states approximately ONE BILLION DOLLARS on the front end and roughly TEN POINT ONE BILLION DOLLARS over the next five years. Anyone who isn't walking around in a self imposed coma understands that these draconian laws coming out of Congress usually end up costing ten times what they estimate.
I am wondering the only state I can find so far that has at least a working paper on opting out is New Mexico? (See here) Why haven’t the other states simply told their federal house representative and counterfeit federal senators that since this law gives the states the option to "opt out," we simply aren't going to comply? Don't these legislators, governors and attorney generals for the states read and analyze what comes out of the District of Criminals? Yes, the State of New Hampshire did make a valiant effort - at least part of their General Court. Last March their House passed a bill to reject the national id, but it was killed in their senate. It's most unfortunate the people of the State of New Hampshire didn't rise up and throw any member of their legislature out of office this past November who voted against the bill. But, unless people know what the federal legislation says and their options, they won't act. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear there are any real newspapers in the State of New Hampshire that even care for their own personal liberty and freedom or they would have begun a massive media campaign to support HB 1582 (see below) and put pressure on the state house.
Let me once again use an excellent example of why the states cannot be forced to comply with this national id law because it's of utmost importance that we all get on the same sheet of the law here in order to defeat this giant step towards Nazism:
Memorandum for Walter Zellman from Sallyanne Payton, clearly marked: Preliminary Draft for Official Use Only. Do Not Quote or Release For Any Purpose, page 4, Health Care Task Reform under Hillary Clinton. Please note these sections: "(b) may the federal government use other actors in the governmental system and the private sector as its agents and give them orders as though they were parts of a prefectorial system? The short answer is "no." State governments are independent, although subordinated, sovereignties, not subdivisions of the federal government.
"Although the federal government may regulate many of their functions directly [as well, for example, it subjects state water districts to the Clean Water Act], it may not require them to exercise their own governmental powers in a manner dictated by federal law. The states may be encouraged, bribed or threatened into entering into joint federal state programs of various sorts, from unemployment insurance to Medicaid; but they may not be commanded directly to use their own governmental apparatus in the service of federal policy. There is a modest jurisprudence of the Tenth Amendment that seems to have settled on this proposition. See the DOJ [Dept. of Justice] memorandum for a fuller elaboration."
What does this mean from a constitutional position? It means that the government can attempt to bribe the states, they can threaten them, but in fact, the states cannot be forced to get down on their knees to the federal machine. These three cases are important for those who are unfamiliar with the importance of the Tenth Amendment:
This is why the legislation was crafted the way it was with the provisions that will forbid any citizen from being able to exercise their right to fly on commercial air liners, Amtrak and enter federal buildings. This is the iron fist of totalitarian government. If the states opt out, their citizens become non-citizens. This is beyond an outrage and only a massive outrage by the citizens of the states will cause such a firestorm, we will see one state after another not only opt out, but sue the federal government to stop them from taking away your rights as a citizen of that state.
This national id will do nothing to "fight the war on terrorism." It is already a disaster in progress because the technology to be used isn't ready and the bogus Department of Homeland Security has proven to be another government nightmare; see here. You do not have to accept this drivers license. You CAN refuse. The states CAN and must refuse to comply, but they will not unless there is enough heat to melt the entire Yukon. The state houses MUST hear from you now. Not next week or next month. Action is the order of the day. Taking a stand is the order of the day. No more talking about it.
NOW is the time to send your snail mail letter to your state rep and state senator; use the same letter. Forget e-mail. Members of Congress get hundreds of thousands per month. You get a form response and your e-mail doesn't get read because they don't have the manpower. Use snail mail. It gets opened and read for distribution. If a member of your state legislature gets 11,000, 29,000 or 109,000 letters flooding their office telling him/her that you will not surrender your state driver's license and will not comply with the voluntary national id, they will sit up and pay attention. If you don't make your voice heard, the wolves will devour you. If your state rep or senator is in favor of protecting your rights and the rights of the state he/she represent, then send them a short letter letting them know they have your support and will stand by them. They need to hear from you. Your letter doesn't have to be five pages long, i.e.:
Dear Rep. Smith and Senator Smith:
I am writing today to let you know that I will not surrender my Texas driver's license for a federal national id. Under this new draconian law, I am not required to comply. The State of Texas has the option to opt out of this new hijacking of states rights (the issuance of driver's license is the sole responsibility of each state as mandated by laws from the state legislature). As my representative for the State of Texas, you represent me, not the globalists in Washington, DC and therefore, you and your colleagues in the state house must refuse to comply with this unnecessary federal law. Our tax dollars are needed to benefit the people of this state, not to be wasted for another stupid, unworkable hair brained scheme by the power hungry feds. This national id will do NOTHING to stop any terrorist, it is merely another tool to track the move of Americans and deny we the people our right to travel. Allow me to give you a couple of examples regarding the right of the states of the Union:
"Each State, in ratifying the Constitution, is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others, and only to be bound by its own voluntary act. In this relation, then, the new Constitution will, if established, be a FEDERAL, and not a NATIONAL constitution." --James Madison, Federalist No. 39, January 1788
Although the federal government may regulate many of their functions directly [as well, for example, it subjects state water districts to the Clean Water Act], it may not require them to exercise their own governmental powers in a manner dictated by federal law. The states may be encouraged, bribed or threatened into entering into joint federal state programs of various sorts, from unemployment insurance to Medicaid; but they may not be commanded directly to use their own governmental apparatus in the service of federal policy. Contact your legal department and request copies of Marbury v Madison (1803), Lopez v U.S. (U.S. Supreme Court) and Prinz/Mack v U.S. (U.S. Supreme Court) because they are the legal justification for the State of Texas to exercise it's right to say no.
Please understand that if you don't stand up for the rights of our state and my rights, I will be a participant during the next election cycle to see that you do not return to office. Our state needs leadership. We need individuals in the state house who have a complete command of the U.S. Constitution, our state constitution and the will to stand up to the tyrannical actions coming out of Washington, DC. We the people have had it with elected public officials who refuse to uphold their oath of office and kow tow to the federal machine instead of fighting for the rights of our sovereign state and its citizens.
Sign off politely. You might wish to enclose one or more of the important items below. I have already sent my letter and the same to my federal rep and counterfeit federal senator. I simply told them that I refuse to volunteer into the national id. If he/she doesn't stand up to the feds and opt out of this worthless waste of money, I will never vote for them should they come up for reelection. Short and to the point.
2007 is the year of action, not more excuses. Jodi Waters, one woman who became tens of thousands, spear headed the assault against the gasoline additive MTBE. She won. We the people won. Jodi beat the biggest oil companies in the world. Frederick Douglass said, "Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them." I will NOT quietly submit. This is just the beginning in the year of "we can." Be sure to talk to family and friends who don't have a computer. Bring up this issue at church. The national id is the gateway tool to a forced bio chip, the mark of the beast, and no Christian should accept this national id, period. This issue is a major fight and every voice counts.
1, National Conference of State Legislatures - Real ID Act of 2005/Driver's License Title Summary
3, A National ID Bill Masquerading as Immigration Reform by Congressman Ron Paul
New Hampshire's bill that was defeated:
HB 1582, forbidding any state agency from participating in any national ID requirement.
STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Six
AN ACT prohibiting New Hampshire from participating in a national identification card system.
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
Prohibition Against Participation in National Identification System. The general court finds that the public policy established by Congress in the Real ID Act of 2005, Public Law 109-13, is contrary and repugnant to Articles 1 through 10 of the New Hampshire constitution as well as Amendments 4 though 10 of the Constitution for the United States of America. Therefore, the state of New Hampshire shall not participate in a national identification card system; nor shall the department of safety amend the procedures for applying for a driver's license under RSA 263 or an identification card under RSA 260:21.
