    Even if you don't have a GPS built into your vehicle you can still be track. There is a tracking chip in your tires. While channel surfing I came accross this program on the discovery channel called track me if you can. very informative.

    So I did some checking about the tires and yes the information was correct.

    Michelin, which manufactures 800,000 tires a day, is going to insert RFID tags into its tires. The tag will store a unique number for each tire, a number that will be associated with the car's VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). Good for Michelin, and car manufacturers, and fighting crime. Potentially bad for you. Who will assure your privacy? Do you really want your car's tires broadcasting your every move?

    The sad truth seems to be that the federal government has the ability to track us US citizens but the geniuses can't seem to stop jihad criminal murderers from blowing up Americans anywhere else.

    But it's the only way you can control people who have lived their lives based on the idea they have freedom and liberty's protected by the bill of rights.

    "Are we ever gonna pay...the bill for those (Constituional) rights"? Interesting opinion by the left in light of the NC democrat governor who suggested that we suspend the Constitution this year. Is there a cocktail party conspiracy among liberals to table Constitutional rights long enough for the revolution to gain a foothold?

    I think that it has been used to prosecute people for vehicular homicide; has it not?

    the government needs the slightist bit of help anything will do to invade on the privacy of American citizens., Those who give up liberty for safety do not deserve liberty or safety.

    Oh trust me. I don't like it either. It's a crappy fact of life, now. There are cameras everywhere. Trying to recall the details of another incident....I think it was somewhere overseas, and it dealt with a trail derailment, or something like that. Law enforcement checked his internet records and discovered that the gentleman responsible for the incident had been online until the wee hours of the morning. He in prison for life now. It was concluded that his lack of sleep had affected and impaired his judgement.

    That's how much privacy we all have now.
