National Database: The Real Reason for the Immigration Bill

They are trying to rush the immigration bill through Congress. Why?

It is not about immigration, and that explains all the Republicans not seeming to care.

It is about building a new database of EVERY American, complete with photo and other information, that will be used so that nobody can work or open a bank account without being verified (and approved) by the federal government.

Chris Calabrese, a congressional lobbyist with the American Civil Liberties Union, told Wired, “It starts to change the relationship between the citizen and state, you do have to get permission to do things. More fundamentally, it could be the start of keeping a record of all things.”

David Bier, an analyst at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, concurred, telling the magazine: “The most worrying aspect is that this creates a principle of permission basically to do certain activities and it can be used to restrict activities. It’s like a national ID system without the card.”

Bump ...

... I'm going to bump this again because this is what is not being talked about with all the distractions.

This is the real reason for the immigration bill.

This is the tool to be used to make Americans ask permission from the government to conduct their lives.

It is Real ID without the ID. It is the internal passport without the passport. It is the worst idea since NDAA.

Liberty loses with passage of every bill

More proof of politics having a 100% failure rate at protecting liberty.

How long will take for Americans to throw in the towel and stop paying for this nightmare?

How long will it take for Americans to realize that this is a nightmare?

I will consider the Federal "government" non-existent with the passage of this Bill. The only fact will be that criminally corrupt men have overthrown our Constitutional Republic by pursuing invariably the same Object evincing a design to reduce us under absolute Despotism.

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...


This is too important to overlook. They don't care about the immigration bill. They only care about setting up a national database. Everything else is a distraction.

Yes it is important.

And I wonder if the reason Ed Snowden is played up so much lately by MSM, a way for the media to distract people from the issue of Immigration?
