ID cards, especially of the biometric variety have no place in a free society.This is the beginning of our all being wired to one Great Machine. This machine is the hideous, control-hungry fantasy of all corrupted governments who have forgotten that their purpose and duty is to serve the people, not vice-versa.

"Those who give up essential liberties for temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety".
~Benjamin Franklin
