      This just in via another e-group... I hope we all start screaming about
      this one ASAP! [I expect better odds of heading it off in the Senate, so I
      expect to be contacting Liddy & Dick tomorrow.]

      PLEASE FORWARD TO INTERESTED FRIENDS

      House to vote on HR 418 on Wednesday. That's tomorrow!

      HR 418 would take the next step toward establishing a national
      identification card, controlled by the Feds.
      This is the undone part of the Intelligence Consolidation Bill we fought
      just a couple of months ago, sponsored by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner's (R-WI).

      Here's how the American Policy Center described this dangerous bill:

      * H.R. 418 would require the linking of all state
      driver's license databases -- thereby creating one
      massive database harnessing the private details of
      every U.S. citizen. It also would force all states
      to subscribe to the "Driver's License Agreement,"
      which would make the contents of this database
      available to bureaucrats in Canada and Mexico.

      * H.R. 418 would require all state driver's licenses
      to have a common machine-readable technology,
      including a digital photo of the card holder.

      * The database may grow to contain far more than
      simply information relevant to driving. H.R. 418
      gives the Secretary of Homeland Security the
      unprecedented power to dictate what data states
      collect for license holders. This could include
      virtually anything, including fingerprints
      and/or eye retina scans known as "eye-prints."

      Please go to www.DownsizeDC.org and click on the link to the top campaign on
      the page titled, "House to
      Vote on National ID Card." Send your Representative a message to vote NO on
      HR 418. Please act now. Time is short.

      IF YOU'RE USING OUR SYSTEM FOR THE FIRST TIME, YOU MUST REGISTER. PLEASE
      PICK YOUR OWN MEMORABLE PASSWORD - DON'T LET THE SYSTEM DO IT FOR YOU.

      Thank you for your prompt action.

      P.S. Because time is short and pressure must be intense, there are
      additional actions you can take. These suggestions are also courtesy of the
      American Policy Center.

      on H.R. 418. Simply dial the Capitol Hill

      Representative by name.

      2. Call House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and tell him
      to vote NO on H.R. 418 and to use his clout to
      get his colleagues to vote NO as well. Rep.
      DeLay's phone number is (202) 225-5951 or
      (202) 225-4000. His FAX number is (202) 225-5117.

      3. Call House Speaker Dennis Hastert and tell him to
      vote NO on H.R. 418 and to encourage his
      colleagues to do the same. Speaker Hastert's
      phone number is (202) 225-2976 or (202) 225-0600.
