The cure for Meth is to make criminals of everyone

“If you have a good ID…it would make it much harder for meth labs to function in this country,” – From the cNet article
Apparently RealID will make it harder for criminals to get products necessary to manufacture amphetamines.  At least that’s the flawed conclusion of some people supporting the national tracking card (RealID).

How? These new ID cards will be nothing more than an enhanced driver’s license. A picture ID is already required to purchase these OTC medications, and yet meth is still an issue.

This solution of gathering information on citizens and storing all of this information centrally is a honeypot for anyone looking to steal identities. There are stories repeatedly in the press about how a government official or private company has lost a laptop, disc, or been hacked and their users’ information is now lost, or worse. There is no security that is foolproof. Even if these information stores are encrypted, they can still be cracked eventually.

In my opinion, this method of tracking is illegal in that it is not provided for in the constitution. As we all know, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

I don’t recall any amendments to the constitution about ID cards, do you?
