Chris says: "Here's interview with the governer of Montana on the Real ID that's being forced down states' throats by Homeland Security.
"This is the funniest interview I've heard with an elected politician on a security-related issue. He completely calls the Federal Government on their bluff, and completely dismantles the usefulness of this act. Please, start with the first minute. It gets better from there."
"We're putting up with the federal government on so many fronts, and nearly every month they come out with another hare-brained scheme … to tell us that our life is going to be better if we just buckle under on some other kind of rule or regulation. And we usually just play along for a while. We ignore 'em for as long as we can. We try not to bring it to a head but if it comes to a head we found that it's best to tell 'em to go to Hell and run the state you wanna run your state.
Unfortunately this time around they've really got a hare-brained scheme… almost all those hijackers on 9/11 would have qualified for a Real ID."
