“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom”
In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about state resistance to the national ID program mandated by the REAL ID Act of 2005, and how the will to stand up against the feds seems to be crumbling.
In 2005, Congress passed the REAL ID Act and Pres. G.W. Bush signed it into law. It essentially co-opted the states to create a national ID system.
Under the law, all 50 states were supposed comply by 2009. But, states rebelled against REAL ID for several reasons, including privacy concerns and the fact that Congress didn’t provide any funding for the mandates. Some states passed laws expressly prohibiting implementation of the act.
When the federal government found coercing unwilling states wasn’t as easy as anticipated, instead of forcing the issue, the feds issued waiver after waiver after waiver.
But in the last few months, the states’ will to resist seems to be eroding. The Kentucky legislature recently passed a bill implement REAL ID.
In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I explain why states should continue to refuse to cooperate with this unconstitutional national ID.
