National ID card (a letter from Campaign for Liberty)


Dear
August,

You and I have stood together on the frontlines in our
battles to uphold our constitutional principles and civil liberties.

Now,
Big Government politicians
want you to carry a national ID card loaded with biometric and
personal information.  If you don’t carry the
card, it will be illegal for you to work.

Campaign for Liberty
President John Tate has been leading the fight against Big Government
outside the halls of Congress while I do battle on the inside.

I
sincerely hope you will take a few minutes of your time to read his
message
below about the threat a national ID card poses to our freedoms and
civil liberties — and then take action.

In Liberty,


Congressman Ron
Paul

April 1, 2010

Dear August,This is
getting to be like a bad
movie.

You know the ones where the villain, dead and buried more
times than you can count, somehow mysteriously reappears in a place you
don’t expect him?

Well, here comes… a new fight over a biometric
national ID card — and if you don’t have the card, you
can’t work.

Right now, freedom-stealing statists Senator Lindsey Graham
(R-SC) and Senator Chuck
Schumer
(D-NY), banding together with
other statists from both parties, are scheming to sneak a massive power
grab into a new “immigration reform” bill.

This bill is a
statist’s dream — “amnesty” for illegal immigrants and a biometric ID
card for virtually everyone else.

That’s right.
Instead of controlling the border and enforcing the rule of law, these
statists want to control you.

That’s why it’s vital you sign
the petitions to
Senator Mark Warner and Senator Jim Webb IMMEDIATELY
.

You
see, a National ID scheme — complete with biometric tracking
technology — is embedded in the new
Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Bill
” being pushed by Senators Graham and Schumer, as well as
other Big Government
members
from both
parties.

And if passed, the “Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Bill” would require a new National ID card that would:

*** Include biometric identification
information
, such as fingerprints, retinal scans or scans
of veins on the back of hands. Depending on the technology used, the ID
card could easily be used as a tracking device;


*** Be required for all U.S.
workers regardless of place of birth
, and make it illegal for anyone
to hold a job in the United States who doesn’t obtain the ID
card;


*** Require all employers to purchase an “ID scanner”
to verify the ID cards with the federal government. Every time any
citizen applies for a job, the government would know — and you can bet
it’s only a matter of time until “ID scans” will be required
to make even routine purchases, as well.

Of course, the most dangerous part of the
bill is the
biometric tracking technology which would allow federal bureaucrats to
track our every move.

Allowing
our
government to have this much “prying power” in our lives will
ultimately result in the TOTAL loss of freedom.

This is exactly the type of
battle that often decides whether a country remains free, or continues
down a slide toward tyranny
.

Government goon squads with all our personal information
-– information they do not need and constitutionally should not have –-
is a
recipe for disaster for our nation.

You see, once “well-meaning” government bureaucrats
know exactly how we live our lives, it won’t be long until they try to
run them
.

In fact, it
will only be a matter of time until they spend their workdays making
sure you and I don’t go anywhere we “shouldn’t,” buy
anything we “shouldn’t,” read anything we “shouldn’t,” eat anything we
“shouldn’t” or smoke
anything we “shouldn’t.”

You
see, this fight isn’t really about
immigration.

Whatever you
think of that fight, it’s simply being used as
cover.

If there is good
news in this fight, thanks to the help of grassroots citizens like you,
it’s that we’ve been able to render the Big Government politicians’ REAL
ID nearly toothless in more than two dozen
states.

Now, the statists
are growing nervous.

They know Americans are FED UP with their mad rush to take
over our health care
system
, expand Federal Reserve power and regulate and control
every aspect of our lives.

We’re FED UP with trillion dollar deficits.

We’re SICK AND TIRED of radical schemes like
Cap and Tax.

We’re
done with their out of control spending on foreign affairs and nation
building all over the globe.

They
also see that our anger is producing results. Many of their schemes are
failing.

Rallies are
growing in
strength. Candidates are rising up in state after state to say “Enough!”

So the
statists are trying a bipartisan “backdoor” scheme to impose more
control on American citizens.

They’re hoping that after months of Big Media mouthpieces
decrying the “poisonous and partisan politics” in Washington, the
American people will
jump for joy at the sight of a Democrat from liberal New York and a
Republican from conservative South Carolina “working
together to solve our immigration mess.”

Well, you and I know better.

After all, liberty activists can hardly
find two Senators with bigger vendettas against the liberty movement
than Senator
Chuck Schumer
and Senator Lindsey Graham
.

Senator
Graham
himself has very publicly denounced the limited government
R3VOLUTION launched by Dr.
Ron Paul
.

He’s stated that we’re not welcome in HIS party.

And now, he’s proving why the
one who should not be welcome in any party that values freedom is LINDSEY GRAHAM.

That’s why
it’s up to you and me to FIGHT back.

Unfortunately, the only way to DEFEAT a new National ID
card
is to contact Americans from coast-to-coast and explain EXACTLY what’s
at stake.

They’re not going to get the real story from the media.
It’s up to you and me to reach them.

Already, I’ve prepared email blasts, blog posts and other
internet activities to alert liberty-loving Americans to the
National ID scheme included in the new “Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Bill.”

But
that’s not all. Campaign for Liberty staff tells me if
I pull out all the stops, there’s an
additional twelve million folks I can reach through our mail and phone
programs.

And
finally,
if I can raise the resources, I’d also like to run hard-hitting
newspaper, radio and TV ads in New York and South Carolina, explaining
to the
citizens of those states exactly what Senators Schumer and Graham are up
to
.

August, with all the battles we’ve faced
over the past several months to save AUDIT THE FED and stop ObamaCare, I
simply
don’t have the resources to do everything.

So please sign the petition
and chip in a quick
contribution of $5, $10 or even $25 IMMEDIATELY!

You see, this isn’t a fight we can afford
to
lose.

Passage of the
National ID card would virtually guarantee the last vestiges of freedom
we
enjoy as Americans would be seriously jeopardized.

And if you and I don’t defeat it, who
will?

There is already a
strong, “bipartisan coalition” developing, and the American people
barely know what’s going on.

So
I have to ask you — in addition to your signed petition
— can I count on you to help out with a $5 or more donation?

Sincerely,

John F. Tate

President

P.S. Embedded in Senators Lindsey Graham’s
and Chuck Schumer’s
“Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill” is
the groundwork for a National ID card — complete with biometric
tracking technology — for everyone with a job in America.

If
passed,
it would require every American to obtain the card to work legally in
the U.S. — and you can bet it will only be a matter of time until
they’re
required even for simple purchases
.

So
please sign the petition and help out with a quick contribution of $5,
$10, $25 or whatever you can afford right away.
