    I'm not comfortable with it, nor will I be. It would seem that a decent amount of people are in favor of protection at the cost of freedom. How silly.

    I say no,thats like forcing every honest law abiding citizen to submit fingerprints or to wear a tracking device. It is none of the governments damn business where you drive. Its **** like this that through a process of incrementation that can work it's way into something worse than just the government tracking where everyone drives. People seem to forget that the government is supposed to be our bitches not the other way around,they are merely servants of the people.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
