The attacks on Americans' civil liberties in the aftermath of
September 11th continues. Passed by Congress in 2005 with no
meaningful debate, the Real ID Act attempts to create America's
first-ever national ID card system. Under the Bush Administration's
vision, a Real ID card will become an internal passport for Americans
and part of everyday life--a way to keep track of your movements, your
activities and your lifestyle.
