Subject: I'm afraid that our "long list"
In reply to: TastingTheBlood 's message, "A New list of abuses" on 08:44:17 08/23/05 Tue

would turn into an encyclopedia! :D

Let's see:

Unreasonable searches: black bag searches, monitoring email/internet/electronic communications

Forced to testify against self: on the IRS 1040 form every year, sobriety checks, airport checks, public school monitoring of family life

Loss of property rights: zoning laws, eminent domain abuse, property tax, city anexation, limit on the ammount of cash you can have, siezure laws

Corruption of trial by jury: manipulation of jury pools, judges overriding jury's judgement, judges ordering juries to disregard information, blocking jury nullification, plea bargaining, World Court

10th amendment: speed limit laws, drunk driving laws, seat belt/helmet laws, Dept of Ed/Dept of Health/Social Services mandates, marijuana/drug laws, feds siezing state lands for parks

Invasion of privacy: GLB, IRS, Patriot Act, Child/Social Services, immunizations, flouridated water, Medical Health Privacy act, selective service registration, homeschool monitoring

Taxation without representation: UN payoffs, World Bank, Federal Reserve, IRS witholding

Maybe some won't agree with how I've classified these--that's OK, there's a lot of overlap.

I'm sure Bembix and Kathy can come up with LOTS more.
