My name is Kaye Beach and I live in Central Oklahoma. I began my blog site to share information and ideas with others who are also interested in keeping an eye on our government and making a positive impact on policy…. The idea that “everything has changed” since 9 11 must be challenged because our government has used this notion as license to run amuck… The principles of individual liberty and personal responsibility are enduring and required for our personal satisfaction as well as for the success of our nation. But right now the assaults on our legal and natural rights seem to come one right after another prompting many to wonder where it will end. The answer depends on us.

Kaye Beach Nov 19, 2015 Yesterday Rep. Bob Cleveland and Rep. Lewis Moore held a public meeting making further study on the question of whether Oklahoma should repeal its 2007 prohibition of participating in the federal REAL ID Act of 2005.
The meeting was held in the new House conference room at the capitol which is a large comfortable conference room with modern sound and video equipment which is important as many Oklahomans who are unable to travel long distances or take a day off of work, expected to be able to access this meeting online.

The REAL ID Act requires all state DMV database to be connected which means the data will be accessed and used widely probably in ways many of us have not even imagined.
