An open letter to Congress

The following link will take you to an impassioned piece written by Elizabeth Cameron and published at

Preserve the Republic - Scrap Real ID: An open letter to Congress

With today being Memorial Day, it is important to think of all the men and women who have served in the military over the years along with what they thought they were trying to defend. Many of those people, including Elizabeth Cameron's father, would react scornfully to the establishment of national identification cards that have the effect of moving this country closer to becoming one where there is no freedom left to defend.

Included in her letter is a choice quote from Benjamin Franklin, one that seemingly shows how he would feel about the Real ID Act if he were with us today:
"He who gives up liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security."
