It is a hopeless method, in America you have clock on and clock off at each
junction you have a number plate reader an a gate to ensure each car is
logged on to a motorway, when it exit's you log off, if you've done 79mph
average you're got right there by the old bill, the old bill will check your
id roadside to ensure it's not a clone, there is a side lane for offenders
to go down to avoid slowing down the traffic
And this electronic surveillance doesn't bother you one iota?What if
there was,if not already,surveillance in dressing rooms and
latrines?Still support being "spied" on?
"They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserves neither liberty nor safety"
Benjamin Franklin 1759
Criminals do not take away your liberty,you allow your liberty to be
taken away! So if Blair imposed that all citizens were to have chips
implanted in their arses,would you still play his game?
Hell,over here they take finger prints of our children under the guise
of safety,but I don't buy it!
"The basis of a democratic state is liberty"
Meanwhile just read that criminals are being set free because a "word"was
left out of the Mranda statement. Too bad government & liberals do not worry
about citizens & victims as they do about convicted criminals.
Convicted criminals equal $$$$$$$$$ for state governments,citizens do
not.On average in the US, 1,000,000 people a year are convicted of a
felony.So in ten years time,that is 10,000,000 felons and what does
that equal in $$$$$$$ ?Profit driven justice!Guilty until proven guilty
in some states such as commonwealth.
And now RFID on our vehicles,plus having to pay 10 times the amount of
a regular license plate in the name of security?When does it end?
Starting to sound like the U.S.S.R., "papers!"
Those who do not wish to
have a chip in their plate will be able to
easily defeat it.
All you would have to do is run a strong
electric current through the chip and it
would burn out.
So the bad guys would not get tracked.
I think you have this backward. While an occasional white-collar felon
will pay a fine, most felons have no resources so they don't pay a fine
even if one is levied. Further, in the US, it costs more to incarcerate
a felon than it would cost to send him or her to the finest college, and
of course, incarcerated felons pay little if any taxes. The only
incentive for stacking the deck against the accused is to hold down the
costs of prosecution, which is why there are so many plea agreements.
what's this got to do with a news groups on cars?!
Anyway .. what difference does it make. Any surveillance is based on
technology. Technology can be hacked, cracked and compromised. It just
easier for the government to track lawful people. Unlawful people will
always find ways around it or even alter it for there own benefit.
Anyway, liberty as a concept is fine, however, how do you implement it?
Amendment 4 of the Bill of Rights
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons,houses,papers
and effects,against unreasonable searches and seizures,shall NOT be
VIOLATED,and no Warrants shall issue,but upon probable cause,supported
by Oath or affirmation,and particulary describing the place to be
searched,and the persons or things to be seized."
IMO RFID crosses this ten fold!Not to mention your personal effects at
the airport being rummaged through for example and am sure you can
think of other examples.
For truckers at least,it is a dream come true....
The module has all your truck info like register,insurance,operating
permits,state stickers,and cargo
manafest.The pole at wieght station and checkpoint falshes your red,yellow
,and green on the reciever.(Usually on dash in front of the steering wheel.)
Red for pull in...
Yellow for slow and wait
Green is jump right on by.
At the same time as it is getting your truck info ,it brounces off the other
checkpoints to see how long ago and
where your last check was.Fiqures driving time between points,etc.All in
about 10 seconds.Then flags the reciever according what they
