US Government Begins Rollout Of Its 'Driver's License For The Internet'

An idea the government has been kicking around since 2011 is finally making its debut. Calling this move ill-timed would be the most gracious way of putting it.
A few years back, the White House had a brilliant idea: Why not create a single, secure online ID that Americans could use to verify their identity across multiple websites, starting with local government services. The New York Times described it at the time as a "driver's license for the internet."

Sound convenient? It is. Sound scary? It is.

Next month, a pilot program of the "National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace" will begin in government agencies in two US states, to test out whether the pros of a federally verified cyber ID outweigh the cons.

Don't fall for this bait. Anyone who is able to tell the truth will have his internet ID taken, and has to rely on `other people' for access ..... guess whats gonna happen ... high profile snitches will earn themselves entire new houses and cars, by turning in the whistleblowers whilest putting their evidence online.

Doesn't anyone see what they are doing here? You will be forced to get this ID to recieve any benefits ,so the 1st people to be forced to give up their 1 st amendment will be people who are poor and disaffected and on food stamps and welfare ,the people who they want to silence most 60 million in food stamps who are the most pissed off at the system

This makes no sense, having a hard time believing it. Just google: U.S. to Cede Its Oversight of Addresses on Internet

I'd say the privatization of the net might actually be a bigger threat. Furthermore, if the net gets privatized, why would you need a license to get on, and how could that possibly be enforced by law?

just think back to the coverage of the boston smoke bombing , the brothers were being demonized in the jew media for what?
being on welafe m omg they were here and collecting welfare they said , and theywere also demonized for being "conspiracy theorists" and they said they were infowars/ alex jones fans and were mad about the wars in iraq/afghanistan and GWOT
you can see their agenda so clearly here , who they are lookinh to demonize and who they are looking to silence
