Scientific American has an article about the new national ID program that Bush failed to fulfill, but may come to fruition under a new administration. Here is my prediction: the radical christian conservatives are going to cause an enormous fuss, and mention the book of Revelation and shit. Also, I have a hunch that they will just ignore the part about the Bush administration being the ones who initiated this process.
Four years ago, President Bush signed a law requiring states to create driver’s licenses that meet national standards, store related information in nationally connected databases and foot the bill for most of this nearly $4-billion project. Now, after the 2005 Real ID Act has alienated state governments and privacy advocates alike, the federal government is considering a replacement measure called Pass ID that it hopes will improve national security while being less expensive and less intrusive on privacy.
