On Liberty and Freedom

Liberty and Freedom in America are under attack by the very people designated with safeguarding our country, and our Constitution. It's time for America to awaken, and take back our nation.

While this may seem nonthreatening, there is still something very disturbing in the implications. Watch this video from the B-Side about On-Star, and some of the issues arising with privacy rights and the governments ability to track you, monitor your movements, and even listen to your conversations while you drive.

Now, On-Star is in all GM products. GM is now owned by the federal government. Do you think there could be some issues with this technology in the hands of people like the FBI, CIA, ATF, Department of Homeland Defense, and anybody else in the government who may want to intrude upon your right to privacy?

Watch this video, and during the second track test of the Cadillac notice how On-Star, without initiation from the driver, calls in to see if the car and passengers are okay.

This is scary stuff when you dig just a little below the surface. This technology, this ability, is now in the hands and under control of the government and the Obama administration . . .

Are you comfortable with this??

One of the most disturbing facts unearthed by this video is the ability of the On-Star system to be activated without your permission or knowledge. In fact, this has already happened with a study to determine the need for electric fueling stations to accommodate the Chevy Volt--the new car from GM that is scheduled for release in 2012I believe.

Basically, once you have a GM car you are now at the mercy of those who may wish to find out information about you without your knowledge. On-Star has it's purposes, and I believe the development of this product was done with the public's best interest in mind, but the fact this technology is very powerful--and now in the hands of our government--should scare you. In affect, this is technology that can be used to spy on you.

A case in point of the further loss of your personal rights. A big thanks goes out to Scott and Liz from the B-Cast for bringing this issue out into the light, and hopefully we will be hearing more about this in the future.
