Miami Police have announced plans to conduct what they are calling "high profile ID sweeps" where they intend to
check the identification of everyone entering a public building.
Officials claim in doing so, no one's rights are being violated; but what if one does not want to show police their driver's license or happened to have forgotten to bring it with them that day?
If one refuses to participate by suddenly getting out of line and not entering the building, will that now be deemed enough probable cause to get maced in the face and a billy-club across the back of the knees?
And what if authorities deny citizens access to food in supermarkets, to buy and sell as alluded to in Revelation 13, unless they comply with draconian identification measures?
Unlike a roadside stop, one does not need government authorization to perambulate down the sidewalk. It's called a DRIVER'S LICENSE, not an authorization to leave your house permit.
Furthermore, does this really do anything to stop terrorism? For if someone is a suicide bomber, it might prevent them from taking out their intended target in its entirety, but you are still going to make headlines on the evening news if you take out the fuzz blocking the door instead.
In the case of a patriotic woman likened to a new Rosa Parks detained for refusing to show her ID to Federal Protective Service operatives while riding on a bus on her way to work through the Lakewood Federal Center in Colorado, authorities contend that they do not compare these documents against any watch-list or compile them into a database. Then why even bother since you are obviously not conducting surveillance
Spokesman at the Lakewood Center argue the measure is necessary in light of the Oklahoma City Bombing. If we are going to hold to the narrative that McVeigh and Nickels acted alone, I hate to break it to the Keystone Cops, but these scumbags weren't on a bus.
And what of illegals caught up in the sweep of this dragnet? Are they going to be deported as they should be, or is this simply yet another tactic to curtail the movements and liberties of actual Americans?
Though he does not carry much weight among ruling elites since he is a dead White male sympathetic to Christianity, Benjamin Franklin said, "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Those already conditioned to be good little collectivists will whine, "What do you have to hide that you can't show your ID." If that is the case, then what line of reasoning are you going to invoke when government security agencies insist that cameras and recording devices must be placed in every home; after all, if you haven't done anything wrong, what do you have to hide?
The Deputy Chief of Police told the Associated Press that the purpose of this operation was for its "shock and awe." Thus, in other words, it is simply yet another method of transforming the American people into a pack of lemmings that have been brainwashed to do exactly whatever their masters in the New World Order command of them.
In the classic sci-fi/espionage drama The Prisoner, the protagonist declares in light of overwhelming bureaucracy, “I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own.” The issue of compulsory identification is not so much about who you are but about to whom your life ultimately belongs.
