I often find myself at odds with the ACLU and at other times with the Bushies. Rarely am I of a different mindset with the two at the same time. When that occurs, I must be in the minority.
The issue that I am referring to is this story in Florida. The Florida lawmakers decided to punish those convicted of child molestation for life.
I know people's first reaction is "How on earth can a take the side of child molestation?" and the answer to your second question is "No, I am not a Catholic Priest."
You see, my problem with this legislation is that it forces people to either spend prison in life or be monitered by the government with a GPS under their skin. That's the problem. The idea that government can force a chip into the bodies of people.
Yes, it is child molesters we are talking about and who on earth wants to defend them? It is not my intention to defend the act of child molestation, rather, to keep a sharp eye on the happenings of government. Tyranny starts with the unwanted. We allow things to happen to those we don't like but then wonder why our freedom is evaporating in America.
Today it's the child molesters, next it will be criminals, then the children, then the rest of us. Maybe it is far-fetched, but what if there is another terrorist attack? Wouldn't it just make sense to require all foriegners to have one before they come into this country? And what about missing people? Shouldn't we just go ahead and give everybody one? For their safety? For their security? For the electric eye in Washington?
I know I sound like a kooky alarmist and I probably do need to become better informed on this subject. Perhaps somebody out there can educate me on this law, put my mind at ease that this isn't a sign of things to come. My main question I have is about this GPS system that they are going to use. Is it something that will be worn on the outside of the body or will it be implemented underneath the skin? I'm willing to bet that this will be placed under the skin.
