for being an optimist you seem very intent that the national ID will go through, despite the complete lack of evidence that any bill or motion is going through the government to enact itUnfortunately most of these technological innovations will not be a choice. Take the national ID that keeps coming up. There are those of us who do not want it and will fight not to sign up but we will not have a choice. Without it there will be no paying property taxes, drivers' license renewal, flying, turning in your US dollars for NWO currency or anything without having one of these cards that will have too much personal information on them. Sure, some will be able to hold out but in the end it will happen. We let our government get way too big and instead of them existing to serve us, we slave to serve them. You can choose to not pay taxes and what happens? The holdouts will be few because most of the population can not survive w/out all that they have come to NEED, not require to survive.
I am an optimist but at the same time I am a realist.
Best we can do is strive to setup our lives so that big brother will have the least impact we can manage. The powers that be raise taxes on something I like, I find a workaround to avoid paying them for the opportunity to use it. That does not mean they win by me not enjoying it, I just do not let them profit from my choice. The vast majority of the population does not even think of this as an option, they will just do whatever is asked of them.
Taxes are a necessity just as a lot of things are but privacy should be a major concern of everyone. It's great to have the bully on the block as your best friend until the bully turns on you. Power needs restraint. Anyone who trusts any government to do the right thing is just plain foolish.for being an optimist you seem very intent that the national ID will go through, despite the complete lack of evidence that any bill or motion is going through the government to enact it
taxes are a necessity, i enjoy driving on paved roads, flying in safe airplanes, living in a house that is structurally sound, and using the internet, but then that's just me
That's one of the biggest jokes being perpetrated on us. I have written to my "representatives" on COUNTLESS issues in the last few years. I have NEVER received a personal reply; just the standard form letter saying "Thank you for your input. I will keep your views in mind as I review and vote on this bill."If you don't like what is going on, the beauty of this country is you can VOTE AGAINST IT
Relax. Everyone's trying to be friends with you and you're constantly picking fights. I used to be a lot like you, with some secret belief that I was smarter than everyone else around me, and anyone who didn't agree with my views exactly was some degree of idiot.Buncha angry sarcasm
Hey, here comes a rant, wish I knew how to make that neat tag... but this will be a rant written off the cuff by myself:If you have a problem with something that Big Brother is doing, simply put your foot down in the ballot box! Like Codename V said, "All you had to say was 'No.'" So, if you dont want eyescanners, or if you DO want eyescanners, then get out this November and VOTE! Personally, I'm with what some of the members have in their sigs: "November, if they're IN, they're OUT!"
That would be the paid pundits that stir up everything for profit.... dude who sees more green enter his pocket every time he insults something.
Heh...we will,and probably cheer it.we threw away a perfectly functional Republic for a Democracy which is rapidly evolving into a Socialist state.We Americans are absolute fools if we allow this sort of total government control into our lives.
