    ObamaNet - Government issued Internet ID card required for all Americans

    The government will be able to track every web site you visit, every keystroke you send, every purchase you make, every blog comment, and every Facebook and Twitter post.

    January 20, 2010


    The Washington Times is warning that the White House cybersecurity adviser and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke are drawing up "ObamaNet," President Obama's mandate for what amounts to a national ID card for the Internet.
    President Obama wants to establish passwords for every citizen to centralize your personal information. Instead of logging onto Facebook or one's bank using separate passwords established with each individual company or web site, you will be required to use the government-issued password.
    According to the Washington Times, here are the problems with "ObamaNet":
    • The government will be able to track every web site you visit and every keystroke you send on your home computer.
    • The government will be able to track every purchase you make and every deposit and withdrawal, and gain access to your electronic health care records.
    • The government will be able to track every blog comment you make, along with every Facebook and Twitter post.
    • The government will be able to create lists of your friends and acquaintances and lists of all your political affiliations, political donations, club memberships, hobbies and interests.
    • It's impossible for the government to make this system 100% secure (remember Wikileaks?), meaning criminals would need to steal only one key to unlock a vast amount of your personal and financial information.
    Although the White House will tell you it is a voluntary program, the government "voluntary" programs too often end up becoming mandatory. See Web I.D. = more gov't control.
    TAKE ACTION
    Your elected officials can stop President Obama and the Federal government from prying into the personal lives of American citizens.
    Email your members of Congress today, asking them to issue a public statement in opposition to President Obama's plan to issue government-based Internet ID cards.

    That way when some hacker gets your "government issued password" they will have access to everything at once.

    Sounds like a real time saver. :rolleyes:

    And yet, none of the liberals who were screaming for Bush's head because he ordered the tapping of terrorists cell phones have anything to say about this.

    Now you know that the government would not let that happen. :rolleyes: They are planning web cams to do visual strip down searches. :eek: In the privacy of your home of course because they do not want to invade our privacy. :eek:

    And Obama wants this information for what purpose? Our own good? I think not.
