How Bourgeois has not yet had a reason to discuss politics, but transponders in our cars are at best a threat to our right to move about as we please, and at worst an unconstitutional abridgement of our right to privacy. Where will this end? We are Americans, and we should be able to drive around where we want without being followed around by spies and revenue agents. I don't care what your political leaning is, if you care about being a free American person you know this is a bad idea. This isn't even well-inentioned enough to claim it is fighting terrorism but is about generating revenue and penalizing people by suspending licenses automatically without due process. Don't think it can only happen in Texas.
