    I feel this is thread worthy. It made me clench my head in anger, anything that does that is threadworthy in my opinion. It should be in Crossfire, though.

    And this is definitly a plausible future. If you think about it, it is similar to what happens on the internet with spyware. You download a product, it takes down your information and records your actions for a while and then sends you ads that fit your profile, or even worse, it sends your information to a marketing company which uses you for their marketing profile.

    The only difference is with the "national identity" card or number, this would be mandatory.

    Of course, just because it's plausable doesn't mean that it will happen. Unless "51%" of this country continues to sit around on their asses and blindly follow.

    Oh and you probably should have linked and pasted the ACLU article connected to flash movie, too. Threads with just links in them suck.

    -------------------

    A dangerous program – ominously called the Matrix – is being proposed by a handful of states in conjunction with the federal government. Unfortunately it’s no Hollywood invention -- this Matrix would compile your personal information into a giant database that law enforcement agents and government contractors can use to search through information about your private life and investigate your activities.

    Our elected officials must stop this program from being implemented. They also need to ensure that our federal tax dollars will not continue to fund such invasive initiatives.

    According to news reports and internal government documents, the Matrix (which stands for “Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange”) is an effort to combine state government records, such as driver’s license information, with commercially available data to create a vast database capable of compiling and analyzing a profile of every American.

    While the private company that runs the program has been very secretive about what data MATRIX contains, government sources report that it includes names and address of family members, property ownership, marine vessels, bankrupcies, liens and judgments, voter registrations, and criminal offender information. However, given the amount of information that is available in today’s commercial databases, even more details of our private lives might be captured and catalogued. Indeed, the Matrix materials boast of having access to 20 billion records.

    Only a handful of states are currently participating in this program. However, its implications are dire and we must ensure that our tax dollars are not being used to fund this dangerous program.

    Take Action! Urge your legislators to stop any MATRIX-related activities and protect our privacy. Enter your ZIP code below to make your voice heard.

    The database will collect and centralize an amazing array of your personal information.
    News reports indicate that the database would include driver’s license photographs, the names and addresses of family members, gun licenses, voter registration, court records and a vast array of other private details. And, just as there are errors in credit reports, this giant database will be compiled with information from a multitude of error-prone sources. Incorrect information could bring you to the attention of the authorities even if you have not done anything wrong.

    The program is expensive, soaking up badly needed funds from more worthy causes.
    At a time when state and federal budgets are facing hard times, there is little justification for spending scarce funds on this spying program. With an unknown total cost, this program diverts funds from more effective anti-terrorism initiatives.

    The information will not only be used for fighting terrorism. Contrary to its proponents assertions, internal documents have shown that Matrix will be used for “datamining” of our personal records for law enforcement fishing expeditions. Creating a program to combine separate, independently available databases of information on innocent Americans is not merely a “technological advancement,” but a body blow to the core American principle that the government will leave people alone unless it has good reason to suspect them of wrongdoing.
