    The solution Part 3:

    Having a National ID Card not only helps eliminate Voter ID fraud, but it also assists in crime prevention and solving. When stopped by a Law Enforcement official for any reason, your National ID card must be presented in order for the officer to check to see if there are any warrants or requests by other Law Enforcement agencies.

    A law enforcement agency may request a National ID Card be flagged if someone is needed to be questioned or is identified in the commitment of a crime. Refusal to hand over a National ID card, without documentation of Report of Loss, is a felony. Of course, a National ID Card should be replaced within a week after a Report of Loss. Waiting longer than that may be met with a fine or other penalty.

    Implementing a program isn’t cheap, but a modest fee, let’s say $1 per National ID card holder annually, should cover it. This is not tax-deductible. It is a service charge that applies to every citizen, and those that fail to pay the annual fee will have their cards flagged and will not get a new one issued after expiration until the fee is paid. Anyone can volunteer to pay the fee or the fee might be waived, if the person can demonstrate they are financially unable to pay it.

    With the National ID Card system, you will find a sharp decline in crimes of all types, from illegal workers, voter fraud, and even the more common crimes could be dampened due to the increased chance of getting caught. The National ID Card system makes America safe.

    Enjoy your freedom and democracy!

    The Solution Part 2:

    For those in the military or government service, your CAC or government issued ID will serve as your National ID for as long as you are serving. After service, you will exchange the Government ID for a National ID. Those that are located overseas and unable to update or get a new National ID may report to the nearest Embassy or Consulate and either obtain an extension or get issued a new National ID, if the facility has that capacity, which they should.

    Only the person that’s issued the ID card may possess the card, with the exception of a parent or legal guardian. Having someone else’s National ID would be a felony offense, with a large fine and/or jail time. Repeated charges would result in having your National ID Card flagged by the agency tasked to provide and monitor such.

    If you lose your National ID card, it must be reported within 48 hours to the nearest police station, in order to obtain a copy of the Report of Loss and have a new one issued. If you find a National ID card, drop it into the nearest mailbox or turn it in to the nearest law enforcement office.

    Voting couldn’t be easier. You can either show your National ID to a voting inspector, or just use a biometric scanner to verify your identity. Once verified, you can enter a Standardized Voting Booth and insert your card into the reader. If cleared to vote, your ballot is displayed for voting. If there’s a problem, as in you have already voted or are ineligible to vote, your card is held and the local Law Enforcement official on site is notified and will assist in resolving the issue, or arresting the offender.

    The solution Part 1:

    If you really want to make sure everyone has a proper photo ID, why not issue a National ID card, issued to every citizen born in the USA. It could be updated every year for the first 10 years, then every 2 years from ages 10 to 20, then every 5 years thereafter. It would be created with the latest microchip and biometric technology, which may include fingerprint, retinal scan, and/or DNA. Those who become US Citizens would also be issued a National ID card and fall under the same guidelines. Legal foreign residents would be issued a Foreign National ID which would be updated annually.

    You would need to show the ID to enroll your children in school, voting, getting a job, entering government buildings, boarding commercial transportation, cashing checks, buying liquor, getting a driver’s license, passport, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Unemployment insurance, government assistance, etc. With National ID, everyone is automatically registered to vote and for Selective Service at age 18. If you change your name, you must go to your nearest National ID office at the soonest opportunity to have a new card issued. If your address changes, you need to contact your National ID card office and update your information. For those that are homeless or have no fixed address, you need to keep the National ID card office apprised of your location, so they may assist you if needed. It’s for your own safety and well-being. Items that wouldn’t be tracked are gender, marital status, or anything that would not be a factor in establishing your identity.

    Stores that sell restricted items like liquor stores and adult book stores should have a scanner installed at the doorway to alert the owner that someone who is not legally allowed has entered. All government buildings will have these scanners installed. So should gates at airport, bus, and train terminals.

    Wasn’t Benghazi a CIA outpost? It certainly wasn’t the Embassy, that was in Tripoli, nor was it a consulate. Who is responsible the the security at CIA outposts? I don’t think it’s the State Department.

    Let’s see if I can get this thing right this time:

    Love is a Scrabble Board,

    A game I just can’t win.

    Your word just triple-scored,

    I may as well give in.

    I just have seven tiles,

    I don’t have a word to play,

    I look up to see you smile,

    I can do this all day.

    So what if I can’t score?

    It doesn’t mean much to me.

    Next to you is so much more,

    Than elsewhere that I could be!

    Obviously someone didn’t see the debate. It wasn’t a total implosion, but it was enough to keep him thinking he has a chance.

    As opposed to the guy who was kissing the Saudis? Interesting.

    My two cents worth:

    Imagine the US being sued by the citizens of all the other countries we have troops stationed in, and have had an incident. All the Iraqi citizens suing the US for property damage and family killed during the invasion and occupation. Citizens of Okinawa, Japan, Germany, and others for a troop that killed, raped, or damaged property.

    All the survivors of collateral damage from a drone strike. And the US would have to have representatives show up in national courts to defend these suits.

    That’s the door you are opening up. It would cost the US billions in judgments that the US government couldn’t ignore, because they set the precedent with this bill.
