REAL ID...WTF?!

Sources are in parenthesis and indicated by number.

I guess I'm behind the times or something, because most of what I've read says this thing, this REAL ID Act, was passed in 2005. Basically, from what I understand (which, honestly, may not be all that much), REAL ID cards are going to be the new drivers licenses (1, 2, 3, 4). They're going to have more information on us and that information is going to be submitted to a national database. But, really, it's not a national ID system...because the states are issuing them. Or at least that's what people in favor of this Orwellian Bullshit Act say. But, you know what? If the information on a REAL ID goes into a national database and is readily sharable between state and national government(s), then what the hell is it, if it isn't a national ID system?
Cut for possible tl;dr )
