The Encroaching Police State: a photo from my local Post Office

Today I entered my local Post Office to retrieve a gift from my mother.

I was asked to show ID, whereupon I passed along my Driver's License.

Then I was asked to sign my name digitally into an electronic scanning machine. Although a bit perturbed, I did so and expected to be done with business.

Then I was asked to write my address digitally into the same electronic machine. At this point I queried the clerk whether this system was new. She said, "Yes". I subsequently explained my reluctance to forward information into their system, in light of abuses with NSA surveillance etc.

A DailyPaul for Rand Paul fans.

I don't frequent this site because of being a Libertarian, measuring Rand against Libertarian principles. I frequent this site because I'm a Ron Paul fan and also a Rand Paul fan. I'd like to see a Rand Paul site like the Daily Paul was for Ron without all the "he isn't his Dad," comments.
