Once Is Happenstance, Twice Is Coincidence...

...Three times it's enemy action.

Three times now, in three different states - - Texas, Alabama, and now Pennsylvania - - random police checkpoints have been set up on roadways and Americans stopped and requested to voluntarily give blood and/or saliva samples.

I think that the federal government is running an experiment - - not anything to do with the samples themselves, but gauging how much resistance/hostility to the checkpoints themselves are offered by the American people. Or, perhaps, the government is trying to provoke a violent response to the checkpoints, for purposes of cracking down even further on civil rights and liberty.

It seems faily obvious to me that the Founding Fathers would never accept such violations of privacy and liberty; the only thing remaining to determine is, will we?

"No, I will not comply with your request without a legal warrant, according to the 4th Amendment. Am I being detained, and on what grounds?"

Yep. What John Block said.
