Here is the simple answer: schema:webid .

Why? Because "identity" oriented relations infer (as per this case) that 
a sign signifies something. "sameAs" relations assert equivalence. "You" 
are not the same as the sign that signifies "You" .  You are != "Thad 
Guidry" that's a literal identifier that "signifies" or "denotes" the 
entity "You" i.e., the entity "You" is "denoted" or "signified" by the 
the literal sign "Thad Guidry" .

Identification Documents like your passport, drivers license etc.., 
"Identify" you based on the claims (statements or triples) that 
constitute the aforementioned document in conjunction with verification 
and authentication processes and protocols.

Please keep the tone civil. I am happy to make points in a debate 
towards clarity, but I really need it to be civil, please.
