For many years, interstate trucking has been monitored by the Department of Transportation. Nothing wrong there, is there? I mean, when trucks are driving along Interstate Highways which are owned and more or less maintained by the Federal DOT, the public should be assured by the DOT that they are well maintained, the drivers are rested and they are not carrying an overweight load, which could result in unsafe operation and damage to the highway. Sounds sensible, right?
Now under a new interpretation of the Interstate Commerce Clause in the Constitution, the Department of Homeland Security has decided it's ok to subject interstate commerce to the same ridiculous 4th and 5th Amendment bending searches as the Transportation Safety Administration (branch of DHS) forces individuals to submit to in airports. DHS has set up mobile screening apparatus at weigh stations along I-20 in Georgia.
Your every move and every possession is being monitored and scrutinized by the Federal Government. There are provisions hidden in Section 163 of the "we have to pass it to find out what's in it" Health Care Act to monitor your bank accounts, Video Surveillance of your every move in cities across America, and recently a judge has ruled that GPS tracking devices may be installed by law enforcement agencies on your vehicle without a warrant. What more does this Federal Government have to do to your Rights Guaranteed by The Constitution of the United States, before you stand up for yourself and demand "Enough Is Enough"?
