I'm not sure it's possible to over-react to what is basically a (so far quite successful) attempt by the Americans to simultaneously increase their global influence while eroding as many of their domestic freedoms as they can get away with. My opinions on the Iraqui war are mixed, but my opinion of our own government is at an all-time low as they attempt to use the justification that another country is demanding degradation of our human rights as an excuse to start bar-coding us. Metaphorically. Any reaction short of aghast outrage might be considered under-reaction.

So it would be safe to assume you don't support a national identity card scheme?

I would whole-heartedly support a national identity card scheme if I believe for one moment that it would a) have any measurable good effect and b) if I trusted the "government" not to abuse it. Bit like the death penalty, really.
