It's about money and control thats all if the people of this country would open there eye's and see what libertys have been taken away from them in the last 60 years they would (if they had a backbone) vote all the GOVERMENT OFFICELS out and put non carear (sorry about the spelling) Officels in and stop all the medaling in the normal life of all the people of this country. And they have supened the Constitution it's called the (Patriot Act).
You are just avoiding the facts, the goverment has regulated anything the want to, because the people of this country don't stand up and stop it, and if the majority of people decide that you need a Lic to write a letter or paint a sign and by BTW that sign you painted would be slander or liable not sure. But that is the way of the world.
You would still need the bio info, what are you going to do cut off there thumb or remove there eye, and at least, whom ever owns the computer and Lic would be responsable for who ever uses there computer because the owner would have to connect to the internet, it will happen some day.
There is a simple way to do this, with each new computer, motherboard ect.. you would get and app for the lic, and then you would have to get a biometric reader say thumb print or something else. So each time you accessed the internet your biometric info would be sent to a data base with your info to match it, well you get the point. Don't get me wrong I would not like it any more then you, but it will happen.
