I told Ms. Sparks it was coming. In fact, I said it had already arrived, it was simply how it would occur. She was adamant it wouldn't, it couldn't ... especially given the civil libertarian loving Democrats who had seized power in 2006 and again in 2008 ... they wouldn't do it.
THEY DID. And not only that, the Governor, now head of Homeland Security, should be in the forefront of her advicacy of civil liberties given her personal background, yet she is pushing this as hard as .... Cheney might. In fact, that same crowd of cowards who used to screech about what Bush was doing - will ignore this altogether, they will not be saying much ... more like sheep. bah bah bah

"Enhanced driver's licenses give confidence that the person holding the card is the person who is supposed to be holding the card, and it's less elaborate than REAL ID," Napolitano said in a Washington Times report.
REAL ID is a plan for a federal identification system standardized across the nation that so alarmed governors many states have adopted formal plans to oppose it. However, a privacy advocate today told WND that the EDLs are many times worse.
