The Biometric National ID Card and Immigration

Updated on February 21, 2013

Somewhere, off in the horizon, is a US national ID card. All being pushed because of the illegal immigration coming into the country and the current system to detect them is only 50% effective. Many in the Senate are now talking about a national "biometric" ID card that can be scanned and instantly will indicate whether they have a right to be in the US or not.

Event the talk about it has civil right supporters worried about the right of privacy, tracking a person and other nefarious Big Brother methods.The card would indicate whether a person has the right to work here or not. The current E-verify system that matches a name with a correct SSN can be fooled and has proven not accurate by stolen names, dates of birth and SSN's. The card would scan a person's fingerprints and veins in the top of a hand and send the info to a database for confirmation. The card would only be used for employment purposes. Really? How long would that last? This type of card is impossible to forge, which is why many, including Obama, like the concept.

The cost of a scanner for a business is about $800. A national ID card like this would cost $23 billion to start and then $2 billion a year to maintain.

A national ID card is, for some, akin to Big Brother and an invasion of privacy that becomes unlimited. To others, it is a sign of the "end times" when the government knows everything or a lot by the personal data contained in the car or maybe, inserted into your left hand in the form of a chip. This would make it impossible to lose or forge. The card already exists in many other countries.

      Daryyl, I sent you an email. Hopefully you're not upset and you and Karen are still coming over. Sheila is going to put me in the dog house if you guys don't come.

      It's alright, you can talk openly here. You are among friends and I will not give out your last name. I know how you like your privacy. I think you go a little overboard about it sometimes, but that's your choice.

      I'm hoping Karen brings over some of her famous deviled eggs on Saturday (hint, hint). Seriously though, Sheila and I are just looking forward to seeing you guys. It's been a while.

      @Jimmy - I think you have me confused with someone else. I don't know Sheila or anything about a birthday party. Heck, I don't even go to my own birthday party anymore.

      As we have discussed before, money will be the motivating factor, that will cause many to take the mark of the beast. And it is this first horn of the beast with two horns, that looks like a lamb, that has preached Christianity, that will use greed and money to establish THE NEW WORLD ORDER, The United Nations, which is the first beast. The False Prophet is actually building the New World Order, for the Antichrist, or the leader to whom they will give it to. And this beast system that the False Prophet has built, will he also cause the world to worship it, and its leader. Both will be worshipped as I have maintained, and the False Prophet is the one who is the enforcer. This is where the other horn of the two horned beast comes in. The political and military power base to accomplish the goal of enforcer along with the other horn. Both together form the powerful two horned beast, called the False Prophet. Please note here, that I have not forgotten the religious aspect that this beast carries. Remember, there is a whore that, rides the beast. This is the religious system, that is incorporated within the initiators beliefs. Money, political and military power, along with a religious foundation, is the force behind the False Prophet.

      You see, this prophet is a false one. It is not of God. It claims to be of God, but it is of another who wants to be God. We know him as Lucifer, or Satan. And this fallen angel uses, the things that are just opposite from the things God uses to build his kingdom. For God so LOVED the world that he came and died for it. Lucifer on the other hand wants to kill, steal and destroy. He will use greed (money), power ( both political and military), and religion. God will and does not use any of the above. He uses LOVE. He doesn't use politics, because JESUS IS KING, he doesn't need a military for he will destroy with THE WORD, AND THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING, and he doesn't need religion, he is THE WAY.

      Not only is this two nation confederacy a false prophet, not from God), but it is a prophet that will prophesy falsely. It will prophesy (tell things to the populace of the world about future things), that will not come true. If you think false prophecies are enough to make people stand back and wonder if there is something wrong here, you're mistaken. There have been false prophets that have prophesied falsely throughout the history of man , and it has made no difference to those that follow them. It hasn't in the past and it won't now, nor in the future.

      Also, I look forward to seeing you Saturday at Sheila's birthday party.

      I would have no problem with this card, but many will. Arizona was crucified for trying to pass HB1070 because a part of this bill said law enforcement could ask for proper ID. Law enforcement could not stop someone specifically to ask for ID, but could if he suspected there was something wrong in conjunction with say a traffic violation stop.

      I would be very surprised if the libs let something like this pass. Anyone who travels out of the country must show a passport to get back into the US and that is OK with most everyone. But to require someone to carry ID once they are in the US is out of line?
