Do you think that you live in a "Free" Country??
Before you answer, think for a minute. Now, look at the U.S. Constitution. Now, take a look at the 4th Amendment.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.What happens to you if you're driving down the highway, get stopped for speeding, and you happen to have a SINGLE Marijuana joint in your car? The Answer: You lose your car! And guess what! You haven't even gone to court yet!!! No trial, no warrant, no order to seize, it's just GONE!
And, just try not paying your income tax. GO ahead, try it. Oh, much won't happen at first. First they'll send you a nice, polite letter, telling you how much you owe in back taxes and penalties. They'll give you a number to call so you can talk it over, make payment arrangements and such. BUT, if you don't pay. The next thing you know, your bank accounts are frozen, your property is seized, your wages attached, and if you're like a lot of people and have your paycheck automatically deposited into your checking account, you're blued, screwed and tattooed. And you didn't even get a kiss!!
Do you STILL think you live in a free country???
