I go out of my way not to be a tin-foiler. I don't really have a problem with, say, traffic cameras that aren't there to do anything but show when a wreck happens on the interstate or whatever. I don't have a problem with drones wasting terrorists, even terrorists who are American citizens, on foreign soil who are engaging in attacking this country or plotting same. But I have a problem with drones (or hot air balloons, or helicopters, or really tall poles) with cameras on them for the purpose of determining if I'm handling a gun with a large-capacity magazine in my own back yard or if I'm reading some sort of "forbidden" literature. That's a pretty short step away from a vidiscreen in my living room to watch me as I watch the Two Minutes Hate. If some policeman came along and insisted that he has the right to stand in your living room and watch all of your movements and listen to all of your conversations every minute of every day, you (either of you) would call it police harassment in no time whatsoever. Having the police peering into your life through a camera is no different.Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

With the absurd proliferation of new laws, you can be charged with just about anything today.
Remember that any power that you give to a political party that you like will inevitably end up in the hands of a political party that you don't like, unless you eliminate the opposition, in which case the ruling party will have all the power that it wants, and you'll have none.--Odysseus
Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.
Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
