I just finished watching the You Tube video: "Top DHS checkpoint refusals". Seems to me that even though these people were eventually allowed to go, they were playing a dangerous game. Now, I agree with the sentiment that the govt. has too much power, etc., but isn't some of this necessary? If we don't want potential pest-carrying fruit in our country ruining our crops, or illegal immigrants running around, how are we supposed to do that? There appears to be a VERY fine line between what they CAN do legally & illegally, and what they CAN'T or WON'T push when questioned on it. How foes one tell the difference? ON of my potential problems with the situation in the video was they appeared to be checkpoints WITHIN the US. Which sounds wrong, and could be the basis for the refusal to cooperate. The video was vague on whether this was the case, or not. How do you "respect the authority" yet refuse it at the same time? A lot of this has been ingrained in us since we were little kids, and it just feels very dangerous to not do what the authorities say. But as I grow older, I feel more and more that a lot of that authority is abused, or not legal in the first place. But never forget, ultimately, they hold more power at that moment than you do. Opinions?
