Sounds like many people will be taking long vactions until this lunacy blows over. Some people have not recieved the memo ;America is banrupt.
There is no money to chase people around and jab them.
Ultimately the only way anyone or anything can have 'authority' over you is if you cede it to them. The fact that a corrupt congress that feels it
is no longer bound by the Constitution thanks in part to a corrupt Supreme Court that's too afraid to ask a politician for a crummy Birth Certificate
let alone uphold the Constitution, can gain authority over you with illegal laws is if you submit to them and grant them authority over you.
Come on into my web said the spider to the fly. Try to stay out of the government's web, and if you have to deal with them, draw them in and deal
with them in your web where you have the bulk of the control.
Most people when confronted will submit either because they 'don't want trouble' or they want 'absolution' as being someone who submits to 'the

'state' that clearly has demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that it wants to and intends to ultimately control every aspect of your life right
down to what to say and what to think and how to respond to every and any given situation.
Some younger people and some foreign born Americans might not see a problem with that and in fact many don't as they say well what's wrong with
mandatory voluntary service, mandated enforced health care, or a hate speech and hate crimes law.
Quite a bit in fact with all of them if you want to lead your own life and not have the government lead it for you!
Ultimately the government can pass these silly and illegal laws all day long but the only one who cedes authority to them in your individual case in
their application of those laws regarding you, is you.
At the end of the day you have the right to live free or die trying, just as long as you will put the effort into living free and don't mind dying
