(NaturalNews) The federal government is working on a plan that would mandate black box tracking devices be installed in every vehicle, with real-time uploading of vehicle location, speed and mileage to government authorities. This Orwellian technology is already technically feasible and will be promoted as a way to increase "highway safety" while boosting government revenues from mileage taxation.

"The devices, which track every mile a motorist drives and transmit that information to bureaucrats, are at the center of a controversial attempt in Washington and state planning offices to overhaul the outdated system for funding America's major roads," reports the LA Times.

"[Congress is] exploring how, over the next decade, they can move to a system in which drivers pay per mile of road they roll over. Thousands of motorists have already taken the black boxes, some of which have GPS monitoring, for a test drive."

There are three hugely important realizations to glean from all this:

Realization #1) The government wants to track your every move

The USA is already an admitted surveillance state. As leaked documents from Edward Snowden have revealed, the NSA openly spies on all your phone calls, text chats, web surfing behavior, bank account activity and more.

Now, the government wants to add real-time tracking of your vehicle location to that long list of surveillance targets. This would of course allow the government to:

• Track and map all your driving trips.

• Know when you are home or away from home.

• Know where you work.

• Establish patterns of your activity such as when you pick up kids from school or go grocery shopping.

• Know if you attend political rallies, activist meetings, gun ranges or other destinations the government characterizes as being linked to "domestic terrorism."

The government could then use this information to target you for punitive tax audits, surprise armed raids, government shakedowns or other nefarious schemes that are have now been revealed as routine extortion activities carried out by a criminal government. (See video, below.)

Realization #2) Government can turn EVERY road into a toll road

Both state and federal governments absolutely love the idea of taxing you for every mile you drive. This fits into the "government utopia" of taxing you for breathing (carbon dioxide taxes), taxing you for working (payroll taxes) and even taxing you for dying (estate taxes).

Of course, governments already indirectly tax driving by taxing fuel. If you wanted to tax driving, taxing fuel is actually a very efficient way to do it. But the rise of electric vehicles is starting to freak out governments because they don't have a way to tax the actual road mileage of vehicles that don't burn gasoline or diesel.

Because governments inherently believe that all your money already belongs to them, they perceive electric vehicles as a source of "lost revenues." These lost revenues diminish the power and wealth of government while also limiting the amount of money that can be awarded to wealthy donors via no-bid contracts (such as the $600 million no-bid contract to build the failed Healthcare.gov website).

As a result, governments are drooling over the idea of using vehicle black boxes to tax you for every mile you drive, effectively turning every road into a toll road. Watch for this to start out as a very small tax to be more easily embraced by the public (maybe a penny per mile) and then get ratcheted up to $1, $2, or even $5 per mile in some areas.

Realization #3) Two-way communication allows government to control your vehicle

Black boxes don't have to be only one-way communication devices. They can also receive commands from government authorities such as commands to:

• Shut down your vehicle and disengage the starter, effectively stranding you with no way to drive.

• Lock you inside your own vehicle, trapping you until "authorities" arrive.

• Cause your car to drive off a cliff as a method of assassinating political enemies, then blaming it on their "bad driving."

• Cause your vehicle to run over pedestrians, thereby earning you a prison sentence for "vehicular manslaughter." (Yet another way to dispatch political enemies.)

• Through two-way black boxes, the government can even use coordinated vehicle control to do things like build a highway roadblock from 10 cars, cause a massive 50-car accident, or even drive a stream of heavy trucks through the walls of a family residence in an effort to kill a journalist.

It's no joke that two-way black boxes allow the government to turn your vehicle into a weapon while simultaneously compromising your freedom of movement. Through black boxes, governments can transform your car -- once a symbol of freedom -- into a rolling prison cage which may be used to imprison you, harm you or harm others.

Imagine, too, what happens when hackers seize control of the government's vehicle control system. They could then turn cars against each other and, with all the drivers trapped inside, turn America's roadways into a deadly demolition derby... (although, it's worth noting that most hackers actually have a greater sense of ethics than government, and the only hackers who might engage in such behavior would probably be Chinese hackers engaged in acts of war against America.)

The U.S. government is now a criminal mafia extorting money from the citizenry

We already know the U.S. government has become a criminal enterprise that uses extortion, intimidation, threats and even acts of violence against the American people to command their compliance. This has just been made frighteningly clear by a new book called Political Extortion by Peter Schweizer.

This is a must-read book that reveals the true criminal nature of the federal government and how governments use mafia-style tactics to extort money from the public in order to fund the lavish lifestyles of bureaucrats and politicians.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
