If we all Started Saying “No”
December 2, 2012 in Politics
Who’s tired of being constantly I.D.ed or asked for “proof” of I.D. or asked for their SSN just to rent a video or on a medical paper they are filling out? If you are then I suggest an interesting idea, what if we all just started saying “No” when people ask us for I.d.s to buy cough medicine or to open an account? How will it bode for companies if America just says nope not going to do it and we don’t want your product. I have grown rapidly tired and disgusted by how “normal” people and companies think it is to have laws, rules or policies demanding private information from citizens that’s really none of their business. In addition, since when is it the right or duty of every average worker to become honorary investigators for the government? Normally that kind of a search would/should require a warrant. This type of conduct is turning real people into fake plastic cards and numbers because apparently if you don’t have or know your magic numbers you’re not a human and you must be committing some crime. I for one have started a new policy. I refuse to be I.d.ed or to reveal my SSN number to anyone for any purpose except for Social Security purposes unless a warrant is issued. I f all American’s would adopt this policy then we can preserve our right not to be pieces of plastic and paper, and to be innocent until proven guilty and to be who we say we are unless others can prove otherwise.
