First, here's Ron Paul to explain the card.
Ron Paul is absolutely correct in calling this card very bad.
Just keep in mind that the use of the card as a "worker" ID card is step one. Ron Paul correctly states that that the social security card was specifically not to be an ID card. That has certainly changed. Try getting a job or a drivers license without one.
Once a card is instituted into the system, card creep will begin. It will begin to be used for other purposes. First, what they will do is mark the easy ones, sex offenders and those found guilty of domestic violence. Then they'll do those who have a DUI charge. Then they'll do those who are charged with hate speech.Then they'll mark the cards of those who have been arrested for protesting. Then it will be those who have managed their employees in an "abusive" manner.
Eventually, landlords will be required to have the card reader. If you are a sex offender (and in many states this is broadly defined to include hookers), you will not be able to live in a neighborhood where there is any type of activities for children, regardless of how small the group of children and how well chaperoned. Which means you will end up in the dead end part of town. Try to turn your life around after getting marked like this, forget about it. You will be on the street as a hooker, until you die.
If you were married to someone, or went out on a date with someone, who was legally savvy and charged you with "domestic violence", it will be on your card. Want to get married again? The card will be checked and at a minimum you will have to take "domestic abuse" classes. Way down the road, with this mark, you may be denied the right to re-marry. Did you have one too many drinks a year ago? It will be on your card. Go into a bar, (We will all have to show our cards there. They will have the readers.), and the bartender will give you two beers at most. You see, if you are pulled over for a DUI after your card is marked, he's going to jail for 20 years. He's not going to take that chance. In other words, forget about worker Christmas parties for the rest of your life. Forget about unwinding with your co-workers at the end of the week. It will be to embarrassing, when you are cut off while you are still totally sober.
If there ever is a chance you ever get so mad that you protest something and are "detained" or arrested, it will go on your card, not as a protester, but as dangerous and anti-society. Try getting on a plane with that mark, or a passport to travel overseas.
Are you a manager who actually requires an honest days work from your employees? You know there are those that will use the system to get a mark on your card. It's a delicate thing to fire anyone these days. It will in the future be difficult to manage anyone, because once you get that mark on the card, you won't be managing anyone.
Do you like to speak out on topics, with no malice intended against any specific group? Forget about it. You will be branded a speaker of "hate," and it will go on your card.
These marks will all take time to be added to the cards at first, and the twists and turns may be different from the ways I have identified them here, but at some point the "worker" card will be the social security card on steroids.
There is no one in the United States who, if they live long enough, won't be negatively impacted by the card in some way. You will live a life in a tortured way so that you don't get a mark on your card, but eventually you will, anyway. We all will.
The card will become an evil instrument of control. It will eventually torture our lives.
Stop the card now. Obama's pose as neutral on this card is nonsense. No one wants this card except Obama's crony union leadership, who want to keep out the illegal workers and control a larger percentage of the overall workforce.
