Some of my idealogical brothers and cousins have a serious problem with the almost-mandatory government ID: the driver's license. Most can agree that it makes sense to have to be licensed to drive a motor vehicle on a government-owned road. (Although most also agree that the roads should not be owned by the government.)

I have the perfect solution, until such time as we can remove the government monopoly on transportation systems. All we need is a simpler driver's license. One with nothing on it except a photo, an expiration date, a class (A, B, or C) and the statement: "The person pictured on this license is licensed to drive on public roads in the state of _________."

Presto: a functional license that allows you to show you aren't a hazard, without giving potential thugs any more information than they need.
