    Quote of the Day:
    “Do you want our government to have the ability to track where you went, how you went, how you got there and when you got home? It would be naïve for someone to think this information will not be abused in the future. Virtually every decade these kinds of files have been used to violate people’s privacy.”

    It is clear the whole Real ID scheme is in flagrant contradiction with the Constitution. Patriotism would dictate to me (and I am not American) that this law should be opposed with every method available.

    That being said, what would the actual gains of the scheme be? If I board a plane to the US, am I suspect for selecting a vegeterian meal?
