regardless of good faith, it is IMPOSSIBLE to be a law abiding citizen in America.
Yes, the means to collect and punish individuals at will are now in place. The only question which types are the current targets.
Protecting kids is a worthy endeavour, however, it is not worth the creation of a police state. It is very sad that so many of my fellow Americans don't know their history, don't know that the states ability to subjugate the citizenry will always be used eventually, in ways that the citizenry never intended when it so empowered the state. My peers have been manipulated by fear, often by fear for the children, into giving away the freedom that was gained at such cost by our forefathers. And they don't even see what they have done, after it is pointed out to them. They go putting on aires about how progressive they are by fighting for relatively trivial points such as gay rights or state's rights, at the very moment they are collectively putting the collar and shackle around their necks.
An uneducated citizenry has always been known to be the destroyer of democracy, and this we now have, even as they delude themselves into thinking that they are the best and the brightest that have ever walked the face of the earth.
