US Voting Bill: Bring Your Passport To The Polls

"The House passed today the Federal Election Integrity Act of 2006 which would require anyone wanting to vote in a federal election to present polling place officials with a government-issued photo ID. So under the legislation a lot of people may wind up needing to take their U.S. passports with them to vote on future election days..."

@jakebarnes and everyone else, the Real ID Act of 2005 has been signed into law. Please read...

[On May 11, 2005, President Bush signed into law the “REAL ID Act of 2005,” which was attached to the “Emergency Supplemental Appropriation for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief, 2005” (H.R. 1268, P.L. 109-13). Title II of REAL ID—“Improved Security for Driver’s License’ and Personal Identification Cards"]

This means that in 2008 everyone will be required to have the new Federal ID, or what is being called the National ID card. Although this is a state issued ID card, the States have willingly accepted it. Montana as far as I know is the only state refusing to comply.

The numerous problems with this, is anytime a Federal ID is required for instance getting on an airplane, entering a federal building, or a national election you need this card. In 2010 it will be required. This means that for those of us opposed to this Real ID Act will not be able to vote any more. I think there will be some lawsuits going on here.

Personally, I am still looking at all the information and gathering my opinions. At first glance the Real ID Act is a horrible Federal "papers please" Orwellian slave control mechanism. It will make everyone comply with the same rules to "prove" you are a citizen. I have a birth certificate, which I intend to bring to the polls. It proves I am an American. I shouldn't have to need anything other than that.

The Real ID (National ID) card is nothing more than a future control, slave state sponsored reality. They can start requiring businesses and jobs to only accept this id. You want a job, show us your papers. Do you want a bank account, show us your papers. It will become so you cannot do commerce in the country without one. I think I read something in Revelations about this...hmmmm.
