For months, we’ve heard about this wonderful bipartisan infrastructure bill. According to claims from the media, this bill is a compromise between parties and a big win for the country.
But recently, we’ve learned that’s far from the truth. Republicans in the Senate voted to advance the bill, before it was even written. When it did come out, we learned it was 2,700 pages long—much too long for most lawmakers to even read.
The “Republicans” who helped draft this bill were all swamp dwelling RINOs. They all, conveniently, packed the bill with goodies for their state—like billions for pet projects.
Now we are learning this bill is really a socialist Trojan horse. Because hidden in this package is plan to spy on Americans—so they can tax how much you drive.
No, I’m not making this up.
Tucked away on page 508 of the U.S. Senate’s 2,700-page, so-called “infrastructure” bill, are the plans for a national “per mile fee” pilot program. And it is exactly what it sounds like — the more you drive, the more you pay.
More concerning than cost is privacy. In the name of fighting “climate change” and funding future infrastructure, the federal government would most likely have to track everywhere Americans drive at varying degrees, all while reportedly keeping private data safe. [Source: Breitbart]
Claiming this is all about securing funds to maintain our roads, the government has created a backdoor into following you around, wherever you go. The program, which will be voluntary at first, will use a variety of methods to track how much you drive.
However, those same methods will also monitor where you go, who you visit, how long you stay, etc. The government will have full access to your daily routine, whether you like it or not.
The plan will use data taken from diagnostic devices used in cars, smartphone apps, data taken from automakers and insurance companies, data taken from gas stations (and EV charging stations), and any other way the government likes.
As bad as it is for the government to tax people for just driving (an obvious attempt by radical environmentalist to discourage you from using your car), is how the Senate thinks it’s okay for them to just spy on Americans. We’ve known for years that they are looking at our texts and phone calls. Now, they want to watch us where we are going, what we are doing, and who we are doing it with.
The only thing they haven’t tried to do is literally watch us in our homes. But don’t be surprised if that’s coming down the pike. All those smart devices with microphones and cameras in your home might soon be used against you.
This aren’t wild conspiracy theories; this is literally what the government is trying to do. They think the ends justify the means—and they want to destroy your privacy to get what they want.
For any freedom-loving Republican to back this bill is ludicrous. Those who vote on it will betray their own country.
