Another thing that needs to be nipped in the bud....  

... along with national ID cards, retinal scans, and plugging the analog hole, is tracking American drivers wherever they drive:

.... the general idea is that a small GPS device, which knows its location by receiving satellite signals, is placed inside the vehicle ... The Fourth Amendment provides no protection. The U.S. Supreme Court said ... that Americans have no reasonable expectation of privacy when they're driving on a public street. Even more shocking are additional ideas that bureaucrats are hatching .... . A report prepared by a Transportation Department-funded program in Washington state says the GPS bugs must be made "tamper proof" and the vehicle should be disabled if the bugs are disconnected ... [and outlines] a public relations strategy (with "press releases and/or editorials" at a "very early stage") to persuade the American public that this kind of contraption would be, contrary to common sense, in their best interest.

ENOUGH of this shit. Historically, governments have always been far more dangerous than any threats they pretended to defend us against ... and the only reason the American government has been a notable exception is that it had "HANDS OFF YOUR CITIZENS" burned into its ROM.

It's time to re-declare our independence from government ... and re-assert ITS dependence on US, the autonomous citizenry.
