National ID

Eric Cowperthwaite has a good mini essay of why he is so concerned with the the National ID recently enacted and due to be fully operative by 2008.

A commenter of his said that he didn't see just what Eric was so concerned about. I can't believe that there are still people so naive as to believe that the dangers to individual freedom inherent in such a program won't occur because "the government just won't".

For myself, I do believe that this legislation is one of the final nails in the coffin of the old Republic and the first murmer of the totalitarianistic government to come. It's been a long process to this juncture, and started with the idea that the individual "just couldn't do it" by dint of his own efforts, but needed the largess of the Federal government to succeed.

I have been accused by some of my readers of being an "overalarmed right wingnut" because I saw many of these programs coming out of the Democratic party. (alas, the Republicans seem to have joined this movement of late, with all too much enthusiasm)

All I have to say is that my stance on the 2nd Amendment being the final defense against governmental tyranny is now being borne out, for if the majority of the people don't wake up to their freedoms slipping away at an ever growing pace, it will soon come to the point where nothing less than a second civil war will be necessary if we are to regain that freedom that is the birthright of every American.

I despair to see it happening, I wish that it would be otherwise; but now I can only pray that there are enough of our population brave enough to be able to make that step, should it become the only solution left.

At this moment there is still a small amount of time to change our course, but it will take a massive awakening of the populace to do so.
I can hold some small hope that the Blogosphere can play a part in this awakening, with people like Eric, Misha, RWR,Kim, and yes, I'll be immodest enough to say, me. Each person's voice is like a small cry in the wilderness, but if we band together, those individual voices can become a might roar indeed.

Hey, thanks for the trackback Delfts and I'm glad you enjoyed the post. You might enjoy tonight's essay as well, Inherent Rights and Dry Powder.

I've enjoyed discovering your blog and added you to my blogroll as well, in the libertarian bloggers category. You seem more libertarian than "right", to me.
