Real ID Act is Real Bad

Some right wing idiots in Congress are trying to ram through a bill called the Real ID Act. This is bad, bad stuff for a variety of reasons. One is that it would allow illegal immigrants to be deported back to countries that will torture them (or worse).

But if you want to get all "its all about me" about this bad proposal, get this: North Carolinians would not be able to use their driver's license to board a plane. This is because you don't have to show proof of legal U.S. residency to get a North Carolina driver's license and this new act would require states to do that.

Anyway, its bad stuff so write your member of Congress today to stop this madness.
