I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

If we have to use ID cards, I want out of this country, or off this planet. Give me a new frontier quick, where freedom still rules.

As many others have commented, every IT project the govt. attempts runs way over budget and is left with flaws any decent terrorist could exploit to great advantage. ID theft has been used entirely sucessfully-as the poor innocent victim locked up in Guatalamo bay (.sp?) could tell us all.

Look at the mess made of child support. Or the huge panic over the millenium bug (lots of money made there for us techies). I don't want to be in hospital screaming with agony, and unable to get treatment for lack of a card that I will never carry. Lock me up or throw me out. I am not a number, I am a free (wo)man.
