"... 'We've got to accept the inevitable,' Letourneau said. 'Real ID is coming down the pike, and as much as we don't like it, we've got to learn to live with it.' ..."
Only if we don't learn to fight it, Senator (with reference to US Amendment 10 and NH Article 7). Only if we don't stand and fight it, and insist that our public servants -- some even unelected -- accept "NO!" as an answer. Only then is it "inevitable."
And since your constituents have been -- and will continue to be -- rather vocal about their opposition to such federal overreach, unfunded mandates, loss of privacy, liberty, state sovereignty, etc., it really comes down to, only if you don't respect the people's already legislated instructions. Doesn't it...?
No national ID. No "papers, please." No militarized police state.
