groschke writes "A broad coalition of organizations across the United States is urging the public to submit comments rejecting the illegal national identification system created under the Department of Homeland Security's REAL ID program. Their website links to several portals you can use to submit your comments online, as well as some sample comments. REAL ID doesn't contain adequate privacy and security safeguards; makes getting a driver's license harder; and will make it easier for stalkers, identity thieves and corrupt government officials to access our personal information. The REAL ID Act passed with no hearings and this is your chance to speak up! The deadline is May 8th, 5pm Eastern."
