In the GOP debate tonight, Giuliani, McCain, and, sadly, Romney all stated support for the use of a national ID card. Yeah, they may try to nuance it by saying that it will only apply to immigrants and visitors. But how long would it be before it was an idea applied to all of us citizens of the United States? Past history of how governments grab power tells us that it would not be long, my friends, not very long at all. This should basically disqualify all three of these candidates from receiving the support of any conservative worth his salt. The last thing we need in this country is to be stopped by government officials and asked, "Show us your identity papers." For the record, Congressman Ron Paul stated his vehement opposition to the idea stating that it contradicts what a free society is all about.
