    Had some inspiration to make this last night. Let me know what you all think. Obviously not official campaign video. Used Cyberlink PowerDirector to make it, and used some clips from Rand speeches at events, on the Senate floor, and some clips from a video Gage from these forums made as well.

    Just wanted to make a nice 2ish minute video for Rand. Thinking about getting some better video editing software and better clips for future videos.

    There is a serious push for a national ID card right now. It is an issue that I think more folks should pay attention to. I know it's hard with all the mud they are slinging right now, but read this propaganda piece to get Massachusetts residents to buy into a national ID card.

    Susan Podziba couldn’t enter a federal building near Washington this month because her driver’s license revealed an unacceptable home state: Massachusetts.

    Bay State residents can no longer use their driver’s licenses to get inside some government agencies because the state is one of nine that have not signed on to a federal law called REAL ID. If nothing changes, they will even lose the ability to display their licenses to board a plane.

    The REAL ID measure presses states to verify citizenship and update security standards when they issue licenses. Congress intended the act to prevent terrorists who arrive in the country illegally from boarding planes. But officials in Massachusetts and elsewhere have balked at a program they claim costs millions, raises privacy concerns, and infringes on state’s rights.

    States face no direct penalty other than the frustration of their citizens.

    Some restrictions — such as the one that kept Podziba, a public policy mediator from Brookline, out of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration — began in late July.

    ---

    Unless the state decides to participate, Massachusetts residents without other identification will find themselves banned from White House tours next year and commercial airplanes as soon as 2016.
