Neither major political party has a monopoly on BIG BROTHER or BIG GOVERNMENT. CLICK HERE to read about the unbelievable reality. Below are some brief excerpts from the linked article. If VOTERS don’t start making some serious noise, this shit will continue to grow out of control.
“The President George W. Bush administration first announced the suspicionless, electronics search rules in 2008. The President Barack Obama administration followed up with virtually the same rules a year later. Between 2008 and 2010, 6,500 persons had their electronic devices searched along the U.S. border, according to DHS data.”
“According to legal precedent, the Fourth Amendment — the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures — does not apply along the border. By the way, the government contends the Fourth-Amendment-Free Zone stretches 100 miles inland from the nation’s actual border.”
EDITED to add: By virtue of proximity to Lake Michigan, my domicile here in northern Illinois is in the border zone; no warrant needed to confiscate my computer or cell phone. If you are traveling to Chicago or Milwaukee, welcome to my third world.
