Would hate to see this be made mandatory, but I think it's a wonderful technology to be progressing as a potentialy volunteer basis.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I mean, we already have rfids in credit cards and car keys now. I'm not advocating for implants, I just don't see it as all that scary.
I'm more annoyed by how someone like Google tracks your buying habits to encourage more sales. I looked up a laptop the other day, just to see what's available and the cost, if my PC died. All of a sudden every page I pull up has laptops being advertised on them. I don't want Google to cram their crap down my throat, like I'm a sheep.
People don't know that the NSA can change bank account amounts. I don't trust the NSA, DARPA and Google with my ID and personal info but it's too late. They'll figure a way to tag us without our knowledge, eventually.

The danger of technology like this isn't that the government will make it mandatory. The danger is that, once out, WE will start the process of building our society around it and at some point convenience will become dependance. Once that point is reached it won't matter if government made it mandatory because people who choose not to have it will be shut out and marginalized. Eventually they'll even become outcasts.
