Big Brother & Smartphone Driver’s Licenses

Sure, the phone license app might be offered as a option at first, but how long until it becomes a requirement and old fashioned plastic licenses are no longer available? This would mean that anybody who wants to drive a car, at least in Iowa, would have to invest in a certified NSA ready smartphone and data plan. If this sounds far fetched, think of the amount of required government paperwork that’s now only available online and sometimes must be filled in and filed from a computer.

At the risk of seeming to get the cart in front of the horse, let me ask: Wouldn’t this constitute yet another tax on the poor?
