Does anybody know exactly what this "deadline" means? What does it do for/to you and I?
It might be useful to research that before you go off about loss of rights and liberty, invasion of privacy, the notion that the government will be
listening to every conversation, etc., etc.
Honestly, sometimes I think that the audience here is the most easily mis-led that exists. People take a statement, twist it to make it sound ominous,
and the rest of you jump to conclusions without finding out what the real deal is.
I hear talk here all the time about how the government is conditioning us by feeding us bits of propaganda here and there. But I honestly don't see
the difference between that and what the fear-mongers here do to you. Please, just because it is stated here on ATS doesn't make it true; in fact,
just that fact would make me double-check something that was said.
For example, another thread was discussing the National Driver's License. The discussion soon took the wrong turn into people believing that the
government intended to inject an RFID chip in all of us in order to track our every movement. People were actually discussing what to stock up on as
far as food and water, for the internal war that will follow.
So, please, before you start putting on the camo and blackface, ask yourself:
What does this "deadline" actually mean?
Are there any laws being circumvented?
What specific rights have I lost as a result of this "deadline"?
Is this "deadline" merely one of the final implementation phases of a law that was passed in 1994
Do yourself a favor and don't be mis-led so easily. Do some research into the subject before you make a decision.
