Today, Wired reports that:
On the surface, this sounds pretty good. The plan asks the private sector to develop methods whereby consumers can create a secure, online identification for all web transactions. In other words, a single, trusted password to replace the many passwords that people must currently carry in their heads.
The Obama régime is notorious for its quest for dictatorial power. On losing the House in the elections last November, Obama and his rasputins openly decided to rule by decree to bypass the will of the American people as much as possible. As an example, the EPA, under Obama puppet Lisa Jackson, was given carte blanche to dictate extreme environmentalist rules despite the lack of underlying scientific evidence. And the Obama machine has now obtained greater government control of the Internet by the FCC under the guise of the deliciously and deviously misnamed “network neutrality” (aka “Fairness Doctrine“).
The Obama régime is also notorious for its preference for a corporatist (aka collectivist, aka socialist) state: i.e. a state in which any industry that hasn’t been overtly nationalized is completely and openly in bed with the government. For a list of corporatist states in history, look here (it ain’t pretty). And for just one contemporary example, let’s take GE‘s Jeffrey Immelt, another Obama puppet who is so loyal that (a) GE hasn’t had to pay any taxes in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and (b) Obama just appointed him to head up his new panel on job creation. How cozy is that?
Now, imagine that the “private” sector in charge of developing this system is in fact just another obamized industry. Would you want such a group of jobbing bootlickers to control your online security, knowing that it could turn over your single password to the government any time it was asked?
As far as I am concerned, this thing is something to be fought tooth and nail.
