The Washington Post recently had an article about police using GPS tracking devices on citizens cars without warrants. Apparently, it’s a lot more common than you may think.
Police are saying that it’s the same thing as a policeman tailing and following a suspects car. Other people are saying that’s a load of ridiculous horseshit.
I’m absolutely flabbergasted that this is really happening in the United States. The blame lies squarely with the public. People either don’t have the testicular fortitude to stand up and say this is wrong, or they’re not intelligent enough to realize what a dangerous precedent this sets. It just isn’t the way a free society is supposed to operate.
If you do nothing, then nothing will get done. This sort of thing will continue and it will get worse. Your freedoms will further erode. You have to make a choice now, before it goes too far. You have to decide, where do I draw the line? You have to make up your mind now and figure out what’s “too far” for you. Maybe it’s a national ID card, or national curfews, or maybe its concentration camps; it’s different for each person. But you have to think hard about what kind of society you want to live in, because things are obviously changing.
Go here to find your state legislators, Governors, representatives, and senators and write them. Let them know how you feel about this issue.
