<<I'm not sure what the motivation was. They sold it as national security issue, which I don't find very plausible.>>

The open borders crowd never does.

I'm just applying common sense. Real ID isn't required to drive a car, open a bank account, vote, or buy beer. It is only for flying on planes and a few other limited items.

And even then it isn't required to fly on an airplane. You can use a passport which is much easier to get than a Real Id card. And by the way, it doesn't even have to be a US passport. So since the minimum ID requirement is a passport, what purpose do the extra Real ID requirements serve other than to hassle ordinary folk?

Hint: None.
