We’ve all heard the saying, “Give them an inch, and they’ll take a mile.” If there’s a poster child for that truism, it has to be government. The states allowed the federal government to regulate immigration, even though the Constitution told them no, and look where it’s got us. Record high numbers of aliens entering the country illegally while states and cities stop serving citizens to serve these illegal aliens.

Ask the government to protect us rather than just to protect our rights, and we’ve got state, local, and federal government actors spying on American citizens without any probable cause. In contrast, the federal government tells states not to reveal information to their citizens. In an attempt to protect our children from the Internet, the legislature of New York is trying to pass a bill that would require parents to provide data that allows them to be tracked by the state.

It’s almost as if the government was saying, “Spying for me, but not for thee.”

What’s the old saying, “Knowledge is Power!” While I don’t completely agree with that statement, I think knowledge needs to be put into action to be powerful; knowing what is going on is extremely important. That’s why nations spend billions of dollars every year on intelligence agencies to know what other nations are doing. It’s also why governments here in the United States spend billions of dollars gathering intelligence on the American people. However, it seems that while they are quite content with spying on us, they don’t like it when we want to know what they are doing in our name.

For example, President Biden, and it appears almost all of the corporate media, is more than happy for you to know that the new executive order will “close the border if there are more than 2,500 encounters a day at the border for more than seven days.” They don’t want you to know about all of the exceptions that are included in said executive order.

Many states use license plate scanners to track where you and your car are, just in case they need to investigate you in the future. One Chicago resident is suing the Illinois State Police to get them to stop. Both the FBI and Metro Nashville Police Department have worked hard to keep the documents showing the motivation of the Covenant School murders to commit such heinous acts back on March 27, 2023.

If the government can collect such data about someone, why can’t the public learn what signs there are that someone else is going down the same path?

I guess when it comes to spying and intelligence gathering, those in government want a monopoly on the power.
