Sadly, there are those who will " miss " the whole premise, never fully realizing that they are being tracked.

It's voluntary, is it not?

I don't understand why anyone would think the U.S. Government is faster, more trust worthy, or more accurate with disseminating information than the free market (Twitter, Facebook, RSS feeds, etc.). Why are we paying the government to do this when everyone else already does it faster, more corroborated sources, without censorship?

Very good question. But Me personally, I think this " program " is just an added bonus to the Patriot Act style infringements. Stop and think about it, regardless if its voluntary or not, there are enough retards out there that will think its a good idea to have these messages sent to their phone. Whats scary is, those very same people don't understand the logistics behind it. It only takes a bit of common sense to figure out that its a program in which to track your every move. Under the premise of something good.
