A couple of quick points:
1. There is no such thing as 'privacy' in the general populace anymore. Your computer tracks the websites you visit. Your credit card records the
information about the bills you paid online and if you paid them late. Your grocery discount card records in a database what kind of shampoo and cat
litter you just bought. Your smart phone with built in GPS tracks the time you went to the store, what roads you drove on to get there and how fast
you were driving on the way there. Then there's cameras and cams set up at nearly every business, bank, corner store, and laundromat to record you on
2. Knowledge is power and this current administration knows it. I have no doubt in my mind that if this president and his administration know, or have
access to, all of your personal information, no matter who you are or who you work for or what your social status is... if you're viewed as a threat,
they will, I repeat, WILL have no hesitation in using that information against you.
The old adage is very true: Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
I won't advocate any one politician or candidate over another as yet, though that will change as we get closer to our next election. But I urge
everyone to look into those politicians running for office, as well as the ones currently in office, who strive for power and control and ask why? Why
do they want this information about me or my neighbors? Do they want to know who does or doesn't own a firearm or who has been stockpiling food? Do
they want to know who's anti-them by monitoring social media?
Information is useless unless it's used. The bigger question we really should be asking is this: How is this administration planning on using the
information they gather? When you know the answer, you might be very, very concerned.
