    Message 1 of 1 , Nov 22, 2005

      On Saturday, November 12, Free State activists from
      Keene and as far away as New London Connecticut
      gathered to defy national identification systems. In
      full view of the social security administration,
      social security cards were burned, sending a message
      that national ID will not be accepted. Around twenty
      activists gathered to take part in the torching

      When Social Security was first foisted on America, the
      cards were imprinted with, "Not to be used for
      Identification." People were wary of the tyranny
      involved with a national ID card, so the government
      had to promise that the Social Security number would
      never be used for ID. They have broken that promise.
      As Americans became resigned to the idea of having a
      national number, the promise was quietly removed from
      the cards. Now, of course, the social security number
      is used for so many purposes, it is a defacto national
      ID number. Doctors, banks, motor vehicle departments,
      utilities companiesÂ…the list is endless of groups
      wanting your national ID number, groups having nothing
      to do with social security and retirement funds.

      Now, with the passage of the Real ID act, the National
      ID card is outright law, and no longer just a defacto
      national ID number. Individuals wishing to travel in
      this country, whether it be driving themselves or
      riding on trains, busses, and airplanes will now be
      required to carry their national ID card, with their
      national ID number included on it. Even walking in
      public requires a person to carry their ID, as recent
      court decisions show. National ID cards are to carry
      "biometric data" probably in the form of a RFID chip,
      which can be read from a distance. Personal data
      about you will be available to any hacker on the
      street, in addition to being given to the Mexican and
      Canadian governments.

      National ID cards have long been a tool of tyrannical
      government. A government which abuses and therefore
      fears its populace needs to be able to track them at
      all times. No government who governs justly need
      barricade itself in, as Washington D.C. has done. A
      government who remains the servant of the people need
      not track the peoples' every move.

      To protest the injustice of the national ID number and
      national ID card, Russell Kanning, Kat Dillon and
      Lauren Canario of NHFree.com burned their social
      security cards in front of the social security
      administration in Concord, NH. A battered Lady
      Liberty made her appearance. National ID and the
      Patriot Act have given Ms. Liberty a rough few years.
      Signs at the event read, "Your number citizen, Welcome
      to the Machine," and "Social Security: The Big Lie.
      World's largest pyramid scheme. Ponzi would be
      proud." Signs were left for SS Admin employees to
      enjoy the next workday. Kanning left the event with
      the satisfaction of knowing that, "I finally said no
      to the government on issues of being numbered and
      being a part of the social security system." Young
      William G., age 4, who attended the event stated
      emphatically, "I don't want to be a number!"
