Americans are sheep! :-(
In certain places within Europe, if the government tries to spy on people, the people get extremely upset about it, because the memory of the Nazi government is still fresh in everyone's minds, and the older people tell their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren about the horrors that they lived through.
But here in the US, the people are so passive, it's like they're all sheep or something! They willingly go along with just about everything, no matter how intrusive it is, or how much of their privacy it'll take away. It's like they willingly obey almost without question anyone that may be seen as an authority figure, whether it's a cop, fireman, politician, or even just some pompous, self-important, and snobby jerk in a suit.
These are the descendants of the Americans that rose up against what they considered wrong and revolted against tyranny going so far as to even risk their lives by dressing up as native Americans and tossing tea into the Boston harbor?? I wonder what those proud and brave people that drank at the Green Dragon would think of the Americans of today?
Most Americans today are essentially sheeple. People who act like sheep. Baaaaaaa!!
If something is really bad, and enough people learn about it, there's a little public outcry (the sheeple bleat "Baaaaaa!"), a few press stories, and usually the plan isn't implemented (or at least not to public knowledge). Then later on, it's back on again, usually advertised as a way to keep people more secure, or to protect them from some real or imagined threat. The people feeling scared, and believing what they're told without doubting for a moment that the person telling them this may be misinformed, lying, or at the very least, bending the truth to make it sound convincing, or not telling them everything, go along with it, and support it even in their conversations with each other, spreading the lies hidden within like a type of verbally communicated virus.
Next thing you know, the FBI, NSA, DEA, ATF, and the police no longer need a warrant to tap your phone or break into your house with guns drawn, shooting on sight anyone they wish, or someone's injecting small ID chips (that're placed inside of a small sealed tube of glass that's about the size of a grain of rice) into you in the middle of your back between your shoulder blades using a syringe (possibly doing it at your local hospital or doctor's office. You won't know they're going to do anything until it's done, because they're behind you and you don't see it coming. They could always tell you that they were just removing a bad zit. Once done, it'll probably remain within you for the rest of your life. After all, what can you do about it, once it's implanted?) or maybe scanners that can pick up police frequencies will be made illegal and the police start listening to their radios with earplugs, so people around them can't hear, thus our 'public servants' will be easily recognized as the secret police that many people see them as already.
No doubt there are some who don't believe that such things will ever come to pass, but because a lot of my other predictions based upon what my past experiences have taught me and what I know have come true, I think they're in for a rather unpleasant surprise. Besides, regarding those ID chips... they're already in use in certain areas because they're implanted into some dogs, and the animal control officers in the area use them to find out who owns the dog, so they can return it to its owner.
Do you really believe that the government wouldn't use something to control or monitor people if they had the chance? Let me put it this way: When the Social Security system first came out, people were assured that the Social Security numbers they were going to be given wouldn't be used as a kind of national ID, but only for the Social Security administration's use. Now, it seems everybody in the US wants to know your SSN (Social Security Number), from your bank and boss, to the grocery store where you buy food. I even heard that Jewel / Osco stores required their customers to give them their Social Security numbers in order to get a kind of preferred shopper card. Supposedly, there's a legal limit on who can ask you for your Social Security number, but laws aren't enforced, even ones against modern-day slavery.
This technology (and much more that you don't suspect is possible) is already thought up, invented, manufactured, tested, and in use today. It wasn't so very long ago that the stuff that was written up in science fiction was merely the stuff of fancy, real only within the author's mind, and the minds of her or his readers. The ray-gun was sci-fi, and everyone thought it could never become real. Then the LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) was invented, used for the military and industry and now is becoming a common school kid's toy.
While you may think that the people in the United States could never be convinced to go along with something, I invite you to read the words of Hermann Goering, a Nazi war criminal:
"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
What would one of the founding fathers of the United States, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence say?
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Dr. Benjamin Franklin, November 11, 1755

Although others will try to claim that the future will be bright, and that the United States of America is, and will continue to be, a free country, I know the truth, and based upon what I know, I believe that privacy, liberty, and freedom will be severely restrained if not outright destroyed in the future. Perhaps a little here, a little there, and they might even use the Nazi's ideas to get the sheeple to go along with it by claiming that those who oppose it aren't being very patriotic, and are exposing those who need protection to danger.
