Your Local Politician Will See to It That Some Day, You’re on a Registry

We’ll say it again, sooner or later, you or someone you know and love will be on one of the state-sanctioned hit-lists for crazies that they call registries. Politicians know that the coolest and easiest way to seem to be doing something about a problem (without ever really doing anything about it) is to pass a law that creates a registry. In reality, these laws have eroded  our constitutional freedoms and should be looked upon as nothing more than a form of political terrorism to deprived some and eventually all American citizens of their constitutionally protected rights.

The governor of Utah has signed into law a measure to create a registry of people who committed a white-collar crime. Several years ago, Nebraska started putting people on a public-shaming registry because they’re behind on their taxes.

These registries purport to “protect the public”, which is among the biggest of the lies foisted on the public in our Big Lie culture.

Responding to the latest Utah registry, Walter A. Pavlo Jr., a blogger for Forbes convicted of a white-collar offense years ago, “The government would further tag you beyond the debt you’ve already paid,” he said, “It’s frightening.”

During the debate over the registry Utah Representative LaVar Christensen recalled that the state’s Legislature passed a law a decade ago to monitor pornographic websites. “Can you imagine going home every night and saying that your full-time, state-paid job was to look at pornography?”, Mr. Christensen, a Republican, asked his fellow lawmakers. The pornography registry was created after every state in the country built a sex offender registry. And according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, several states have formed drug-offender registries and even a database of arsonists.

None of the registries makes one whit of difference in terms of protecting the public. Politicians know this, and they know that most people who vote either don’t know or don’t care that registries only make things worse for the public they purport to protect.

    Makes a person wonder why we have a judicial system. People never seem to pay their debt to society as long as we have registries. Just lock them up in a cage in the town square with a sign around their neck saying what they were in trouble for.

    The state of Ohio implemented a “drug offender” website. What I find peculiar is that the search engine for that registry is quite different from that of their SO registry. In order to locate a Drug Offender, you need to know not only the person’s last name BUT also the county of their conviction. On the SO registry, all you need is a last name. Who are they protecting, hmmm?

    Politicians profited from the political exiles of the last century and will be the politicians of this century that reverse the flow. We have already seen the UK give an apology and Royal Pardon for the appalling treatment of a sex offender that prompted the award winning movie The Imitation Game. The truth is this Empire is crumbling like all the other empires before it and eventually everyone is going to loose faith in the law and exercise the 2nd amendment like the men who wrote the Declaration of Independence and killed their own people to start a new government.

    I just want to ask those who know of some states that offer no statute of limitations when it comes to child sex abuse and if they feel their should be?? (One state just passed this recently) Could this lead to more registered offenders?
