Today is the REAL ID Act Grudge Day

Today’s Downsizer-Dispatch…

Action Item:

Congress thinks it can pass law-after-law violating your rights, because you will just forget about it. The REAL ID Act is a case in point. Americans were not meant to carry national ID cards and internal passports and have all of their most personal information made available to the government. The 10th of each month is the anniversary of the passage of the REAL ID Act – the date on which the U.S. Senate imposed a national ID card on us. Do not forget about it. Hold a grudge about it. Send Congress a message demanding that the REAL ID Act be repealed. To send your message click here.


I will be guest-hosting The Harry Browne Show tonight (Saturday). My guest will be Brad Smith, the former Commissioner of the FEC. He’s one of the nation’s leading experts on (and opponents of) campaign finance regulations. Tune in and hear the latest on what the politicians are doing to strangle political competition in the United States. Here’s how everyone in the country can listen in…
