Observation

As a legal, natural-b0rn United States citizen, I will absolutely refuse to hand over my ID at either random checkpoints or to businesses that won’t serve me unless I prove my status.

  1. I'm with YOU! Probably no one in their right mind would ever ask ME for one, but it's the damned principle of the thing! As anyone who has ever been pulled over by the police knows, you FEEL guilty even when you know you AREN'T. It's just the accusational attitude that makes people SO uncomfortable. Besides… if we're accusing people of suspected illegal immigration, where does it end? Maybe people who look like me could be illegals from Ireland, England or Germany? Or what about Asian-Americans, NATIVE Americans, or anyone with an unusual accent? As another native-born, multi-generational AMERICAN, I am offended at the very idea of such a law. This is LEGALIZED racism couched inside highly-emotional immigration issues. Shame, SHAME on all of them for taking advantage to press an agenda!
