[WATCH] Ron Paul riles up supporters to stop so-called National ID system in ‘Gang of 8′ bill

Ron-PaulFormer presidential candidate Ron Paul is riling up his loyal fan base to protest the ‘Gang of Eight’ bill.

But the former Congressman isn’t outraged over amnesty like many other conservative leaders. Instead, he’s asking his supporters to sign a petition to stop the ‘National ID system.’

One of the components of the comprehensive immigration reform legislation is a universal E-Verify system, a database for employers to verify their employees are legal citizens. While its purpose is to bar illegal immigrants from working in the U.S., many liberty-minded groups like Paul’s argue systems like this will only lead to a ‘National ID system.’

In a video created by Paul’s nonprofit, Campaign for Liberty, Paul claims the ‘Gang of Eight’ senators are “working with President Obama to sneak this massive National ID power grab into a new ‘immigration reform’ law that’s being used as a cover for all sorts of statist madness.”

“It’s by far the worst national scheme the the statists have come up with yet,” he says in the video.

According to the former Texas Congressman, systems like E-Verify will only lead to the federal government tracking our every move.

“How long will it be before the statists start telling us what we can teach our children?” he asks. “Or where we can go to church?”

Paul argues the government will use the information from the database to ensure we don’t “go anywhere, read anything, eat anything or drink anything they think we shouldn’t.”

He ends the video asking the viewer to not only sign the petition, but of course give a contribution to pay for a full-fledged TV, radio and social media campaign against the National ID system.

    If the socialist elite running this country now are not soon stopped you will need a tattooed number on you or bar code cross the damn street . Can’t happen you think ? Ask any of the old Polish or European Jews still alive from 1930’s Europe ? I knew several the Nazis tatted up I’m not Jewish and never could or wanted to be but I had many former customers to tell me their stores of the concentration camps and their tattoos and papers it took to go across the towns . Thats recent history not ancient .

    Its just horrible that we are forced to distrust our own govt but their own track record has led us to it. The DHS was suppose to be there to protect us but they’ve turned us into suspects and likely domestic terrorists instead. I don’t trust them one bit anymore.

    Signed. I can imagine the horror now of the DMV nightmare this bill would cause.

    “The Gang of 8″
    It’s right there in the open for all to see that the mob running Mordor by the Potomac is a but a little little bubble unto itself sucking up every resource be it material or mental across the land and corrupting it.
    The Truth has become a casualty on virtually every issue facing the Republic.
    From science to medicine to the financial systems to “education”, media, psychology, advertising and brainwashing to the gmo foods we are forced, the MIC and the sycophantic bootlicking that goes on at every level to grease the skids and keep the whole ponzi scheme rolling along…………

    And now this………..
    Give em heck Dr. Paul………too few left who know where all this is headed

    Please, please make everyone you know this is TRUE, not a scam, etc. This is foretold in
    the Bible. The message is urgent, make people listen.
