GPS Doorway Census
The Decennial Census in 2010 is around the corner, and technology promises to be of great assistance to the process of counting the number of Americans residing in this great nation. Instead of using paper-based lists, surveys, and the like, however, the United States Government has developed a paperless method to achieve their census goals. Efficiency and accuracy are the promised bi-products of these new technology-based programs, which includes creating Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates for the front doors of American homes. This way, in addition to the current satellite location and picture of your property from the roof, the government will now have a GPS coordinate for your front door.
GPS coordinates of your front door will make it easier for the government to monitor you. The U.S. Census Bureau is simply an excuse - a harmless looking means of obtaining the front door coordinates. The creation of GPS coordinates for front doors has nothing to do with the Census, in all honesty, no matter how much the United States Government tries to convince you that it does.
Why would the U.S. government desire the exact location of your front door to be entered into their GPS data base when they already have the location of your home in the system?
One explanation I have received in my research is that the collection of front door GPS coordinates are required for our nation's security. After all, protecting this nation is an ongoing responsibility, and the Global War on Terror is a puzzle with continuously changing battlefields, and rapidly changing tactics by the enemy.
I am all for protecting this nation. This is why I supported The Patriot Act, though it took a while for me to come to that conclusion. The Patriot Act, I decided, was simply going to make legal what the government was doing already, and if the tactics prescribed by The Patriot Act would catch terrorists before they could commit another act of terrorism, I was all for it. My reservations, however, included the thought, "What if such intelligence capabilities fell into the wrong hands, like a tyrannical government who saw the citizenry of America as being a larger danger to their position of power than terrorists?"
To collect the coordinates of the front doors of the homes of America, I determined it was going to take a lot of people involved in the process, and the White House would need to coordinate the efforts more directly if the process was going to move ahead smoothly for them.
Connecting the dots followed, for me. I began to recall that the Obama Administration was under fire in early February for indicating that the White House needed to oversee the 2010 census, literally taking control of the Census away from the Commerce Department. At the time I wondered, "Why would Obama desire direct control of the 2010 Census?"
I also wondered how the Obama Administration would be able to recruit enough people willing to do something that the average American would be appalled to do. After all, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize the dangerous implications surrounding the idea of gaining GPS coordinates for the doorways of America.
Barack Obama, as far back as during his campaigns, has pushed for national service. The Obamites, thirsty to serve their new messianic figure, have lost enough of their objectivity to be willingly recruited into such an insidious program like gaining these coordinates for the U.S. Government. They will be willing to accept any explanation. The followers of Obama are ready to believe, whether it is true or not, that going around shooting the coordinates of the front doors of America is good for America, and good for hope and change.
I ask again, what would be the purpose of shooting the GPS coordinates of American doorways? How would having such coordinates be to the government's advantage?
Imagine, if you will, that there are a number of people in a neighborhood that could not find the addresses they are tasked with finding. They are not locals, maybe are unable to read a map, or perhaps do not have the time to pull out a map, and they need to find you with specific GPS coordinates. Their devices would lead them to your front door with these coordinates. Imagine a crisis is afoot, and martial law is put into place. U.S. troops need to round up particular folks.
Let's take this a step further. After all, with Barack Obama desiring to decrease the number of folks in the military, and with forces committed worldwide, we may not have sufficient military forces at home to deal with a rising national emergency. If the government decided to rely on foreign troops, perhaps United Nations personnel, most of which may not understand the street signs, much less know the lay of the land, they could use GPS devices to direct them to your front door.
But why would they need to find your front door?
No trespassing signs won't stop them from shooting the coordinates, either. By using the U.S. Census as an excuse to shoot the coordinates the federal government can use the U.S. Code, Chapter 7, Subtitle 2 of Section 223, Title 13, which outlines the penalties for any citizen refusing to assist a census taker.
Once a field worker is done with your front door, Big Brother has you in sight, using an eye in the sky. Satellites. GPS. Big Brother is Watching You.
On May 3, 2009, my guest on Political Pistachio Radio will be a person with extensive knowledge on this matter. Tune in at 7pm next Sunday night to hear the details.
