ID Cards Will Soon Be Passé

We have lots of ID cards in this country, but none of them are comprehensive, in the sense of really identifying you, universal and mandatory.  The reason is political opposition.  Every time someone suggests a system of universal identification, such as for voting or enforcing immigration laws, there is an uproar, and the idea is canned.

But now we are told that the FBI is moving to a biometric ID system that will almost certainly extend to all of us.  It can be used for surveillance and police work and also normal administrative functions.  As with every technology that has ever been developed, sooner or later it will do everything it can do.

But no uproar (yet).  Why?

I like your post Now, many people will tell you to cancel your cards immediately, but that’s not actually what you want to do. Cancelling the cards puts wheels in motion that could leave you in a mess, especially with your credit score. What you actually want to do is report the cards as lost or stolen. This is very different than canceling, and every card issuer has a procedure that will suspend those numbers to keep your money safe.Employee ID Badges
