A shocking new U.S. government plan would embed an RFID chip in all driver's licenses. Just when privacy advocates thought that the REAL ID program was dead, the federal government has come up with something far worse.
If this proposal is implemented, the U.S. government would be able to electronically track nearly every adult citizen wherever they go. The possibilities for abuse of such a system are endless. For example, the government would be able to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies just by walking through the crowd with an ID reader.
This very disturbing proposal actually has the support of Janet Napolitano, the new head of the Department of Homeland Security. Instead of calling them REAL IDs, these new licenses would be called "enhanced driver's licenses".
The Department of Homeland Security even has a web page up about these "enhanced driver's licenses". On that page they even admit that a RFID chip that "will signal a computer to pull up your biographic and biometric data" and tell the government agent all of your personal details.
Do you all find this disturbing yet?
Of course this is not the Mark of the Beast yet, but it is another step in that direction. Someday the antichrist will require that all the people of the world take an identification mark in their right hand or their forehead, and those who do not take it will be killed.
Already, RFID implants are being used in humans with alarming frequency. For instance, RFID implants are being implanted in older Americans living with Alzheimer's disease who are at risk of wandering off. RFID human implants are also being used in some places to store the medical records of patients who are chronically ill so that doctors can get their information quickly in an emergency.
While those uses may sound "good" to a degree, the reality is that the primary use of this technology is to create a "Big Brother" society where everything that you do is tracked, traced and watched by the government. Every time this technology expands, it brings us closer to that day that we read about in the book of Revelation.
Let us hope that Americans will unite and oppose this proposal just as they opposed the READ ID Act.
