If you weren’t already worried enough about surveillance, and having your phone calls, emails, Facebook page and tweets monitored, according to the Gateway Pundit, the Immigration Bill now being debated in the Senate will create a national database on every adult in the U.S. Homeland Security will create a massive federal database containing you name, age, Social Security number and photograph, from state issued photo IDs, according to Wired.
A Senate aide disputed the Wired account arguing that a Supreme Court ruling Printz v. US would prohibit the federal government from forcing state officials to turn over driver’s license images. But already the faces of more than 120 million people are stored in searchable photo databases which are increasingly used by police to identify suspects, accomplices and bystanders in criminal investigations.
Just fills you with confidence in the government, doesn’t it? It’s always been clear that inside every Liberal lurks a little totalitarian who can’t stop trying to rearrange things to suit himself, but it does seem to be piling up.
