The actual National ID idea is an awful idea which is terrible for civil liberties and America in general. People like Ron Paul, Barr, and other libertarians are incredibly opposed to the idea. But it's different than the real id act. So I'm not sure which one you're refering to.
"Compromise, hell! That's what has happened to us all down the line -- and that's the very cause of our woes. If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?"
