The unconstitutional Real ID Act of 2005 has been voted out by Maine. Other states are doing the same thing. Having a national ID system is unconstitutional because they would be able to track individual purchases and FORCE you to get the ID. A driver's license is optional and isn't required to do anything.


States will have to comply by May 2008. If they do not, driver's licenses that fall short of Real ID's standards cannot be used to board an airplane or enter a federal building or open some bank accounts. About a dozen states have active legislation against Real ID, including Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming. Missouri state Rep. James Guest, a Republican, formed a coalition of lawmakers from 34 states to file bills that oppose or protest Real ID.
