The Obama regime has unveiled a plan for a “trusted identity” which would create a single secure password for all of your online accounts.
The Obama regime is behind this. What could possibly go wrong?
The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace is going to start out as a voluntary system. The problem, according to the government is that we have a whole bunch of passwords jotted down on post-it notes and we have memory questions such as mother’s maiden name or favorite pet.
Assuming this is a problem, why is it the government’s business to solve this problem?
The concept is to create a single software source that can be used to log on to any number of accounts you have, such as your bank, credit cards, and other transactions. Let’s see, what could go wrong with this?
Let’s start with the basics. It is a government program. To err is human, but to really screw up, you need the government. This program is at first a voluntary program, but who says this program will stay a voluntary program? Remember, government bureaucrats are graded on how they can expand their departments, so how could this one be expanded?
We start with something voluntary. Then states are offered the proverbial federal bribe with federal funds. The Feds will offer money if states require the use of these secure ID’s. If you want to do anything with your state or local government online, you will be required to get one of these ID’s.
Certain people say starting with sex offenders would be required to use one of these ID’s before they would be allowed online. Then it would be expanded from there. Before long, we would all be required to have these government ID’s to get online. How long then before the government would have the power to revoke your permission to be online?
Given the Obama regime’s hatred towards those who disagree with them and their desire to control the media and dissenting opinions, that is not an unreasonable belief.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Some of the intentions of the people behind this may be good. But this is perhaps the classic case of if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
Perhaps the best statement here is that if this problem were really serious, the private sector would come up with a solution. The private sector works wonders. Look at all of the amazing products out there. There are programs to lock your identity so that it cannot be stolen from you. There are password programs. There are back up programs and other types of programs that will do almost anything you want.
If this were a problem that needed a solution, free enterprise would come up with it. Government has never made a country prosperous and has never solved a major problem. As Ronald Reagan said, government is not the solution, it is the problem. In this case, with the Obama regime, the last thing we need is them trying to solve this non-existent problem.
You will be, but it will be a different kind of drone than you imagine and it will come in a way you least
expect it. You should see how many innocent folks are mysteriously on the Watch List and No Fly List.
Wes, I did notice the date.
We don't have that much to invest but it sure would be nice to be able to keep what we have without the government taking it away from us. I just never dreamed that the most free country in the world would turn to Communism (that's what it feels like to me). In my opinion it's just because of all the people that think this country owes them a living. I have tried so hard to make liberals see what is happening but all that happens is they say I am a wacko right winger and I have actually lost friends because I don't agree with Obama. I just don't understand how people in this country can be so blind.
Interesting times! No one is immune from Obama! God help us.
When will we stop this power hungry protozoa? He just keeps on beating us up and we are worried about a birth certificate! Has anyone every heard of diversions! We get all tied up with little things and the governmental minds of the good side is being sacked by the dark side! While we are fighting for a budget that everyone knows the extreme leftist Senate will just vote it down. Let's face it; we are in a standoff because of a democrat senate! Why don't we figure to keep our losses from the senate at a minimum and start planning for 2012. If this clown gets alien citizenship the true America is gone! Let's figure out what we have to do to save our country while at the same time figuring out a way to get BipBO out of the White House.
