Link: Constitution Death Pool.
Why is anyone surprised at the erosion of individual rights in this country? You can't drink. If you don't drink you still may get harrased about it. You no longer own property except subject to the whim of the local town council. In many areas of the country you can't own a gun let alone carry it. The governments been nibbling away at your rights for years.
The illegal seizure of property from suspected drug felons was the beginning. Even if you're never convicted you lose your property. Or even someone else's property. Can you imagine your teenage son borrows your Mercedes and a friend rides with him carrying a joint? They get pulled over and your car is history.
But everyone thought it was great. Take the profit out of drugs. And everyone hates drugs, right? And now it's alcohol. Drunk drivers. Death on four wheels. Take their cars now. Can't drive? Can't drive drunk.
It's coming. And soon. Rights?? We'll let you know when you have rights. Otherwise just shut up and do what we say.
