From a post to Politech, Declan McCollough's politics/technology mailing list:
"The state and provincial DMVs are about to spring "Uniform ID" on the unsuspecting public, in the US, Canada, and Mexico. They swear up and down that it isn't "National ID". But their credo is "One driver, one license, one database record". Instead of building one Big Brother database, they're building seventy little ones, with a network that ties them all together. See http://www.aamva.org/IDSecurity . They plan to introduce the enabling legislation in each state or province's legislature in January."
