I Don't Need No Stinking National ID Card!

When the debate over health care is over you should brace yourself for the next big issue coming down the road which will be immigration reform and some in Congress are already beginning to work on this, namely Chuck Schumer that liberal democrat from NY and the infamous RINO, Lindsay Graham from SC. They have joined forces to push immigration reform on the American people. So far John McCain has stayed out of the early efforts, well he is up for re-election this year and knows how the people in Arizona feel about this effort especially those who will vote in the republican primary.

One of the first ideas floated is that of a National ID Card. A card that all Americans seeking employment would have to present to employers before being hired. This would be a biometric card designed to prevent undocumented worker from being employed. Futile efforts such as this remind me of restrictive guns laws enacted to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. What laws such as this do is to place undue hardships on the average law-abiding citizen and nothing more. The undocumented will always find a way around such actions.

Finally there is the matter of personal liberty. The National ID Card would essentially treat every American like a criminal, required intimate person data to be entered into a government database. Personally I am tired of my personal liberty's being restricted because others choose to break the law. I am tired of having to "press 1" for English. I resist the idea of carrying another government ID because someone else sneaked into the country. It is un-American for me to be punished for crimes committed by others. Frankly, Chucky and Lindsay you two can take that damn card and shove it where the light don't shine. I'm not a dog and don't need your damn dog tag to prove I'm a American, just seal the freaking border!
