You don't think in the era of Hope and Change that the jack-booted feds don't want to snoop in on every facet of your lives? Ponder for a moment the implications of this:
"National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyperspace"
The Obama administration is beta-testing this system in two states already. Ostensibly it is to allow every citizen to use a single ID scan device to securely access any and all websites without memorizing dozens of ID's and passwords, while maintaining identity protection. Sounds great, right? But how long before it morphs into monitored purchasing, bill paying, travel, etc? Everything you do would be accomplished using the one government-issued web ID.
Would you agree to a government-monitored life using what amounts to a federal mark-of-the-beast as your ID? If you would, you're a moron.
Maybe it'll be something like this, with all your credit card information for purchases encoded therein? Then the government would install passive bar-code sensors everywhere, with the claim that it's for your own safety and homeland security, but your movements, activities, communications, and associations would be tracked and known 24/7.
