Would you support the establishment of a Federal finger-print and DNA database for all U.S. residents?

In person voter fraud isn't a big enough problem to warrant fingerprinting all voters.

Krazy ... your over-generalization simply shows your ignorance. I'm conservative and whole-heartedly support the database AND the surveillance of high risk groups like Muslim radicals.

The information is vital to protecting our rights -- this includes biometrics to verify unadulterated elections!

Wow, you all just ganged up on a 13 year old. House mouse, someone your age using an app like this shows a lot more maturity than I had. Don't listen to these fools.

A lot of stupid sheeple out there. It's not the technology that is evil, it's the people who command control of it and control of you through the use of it.

Because if the gov't turns communist or some other bad type of leadership, The Feds know exactly which Burger King you've been to. Hey, you gave them your finger prints, didn't you? The LEAST power and knowledge the gov't has over our ppl, the better. Our gov't works for our ppl, not vice versa.

Anyone who said no to this because it violates their privacy, yet has a Facebook is not only a huge hypocrite, but also an idiot.

OH, another POLL. Sorry, I thought you meant other comments here.

Yeah, I have to admit that looks pretty similar to what you're claiming. Although it wasn't specifically about DNA & fingerprint collecting, "just" surveillance, monitoring & tracking - same in spirit, though.

02/10/13 12:07 pm

IMO. Maybe you have to comply to get any form of payment from gov't. Paycheck, tax returns, food stamps, etc...

The poll on Muslims below that asks about spying on Muslims, just because of their religion.

Please tell me the time (your own time zone is OK; I'll figure the difference) that the initial comment in the thread wad posted and I'll go read it. There are currently 832 comments here; a quick scan didn't turn up whatever you're referring to.

But: One example does not = "all."

Go look at the thread regarding Muslims below and then see why it's fact.

In Texas it is recorded, but not used in AFis, the database used by law enforcement in investigations.

What exactly could someone do with my fingerprint pattern or dna coding?

I fail to see the likelihood or application of how any government employee, appointee, volunteer, or elected official would abuse the information contained in my fingerprint or DNA profile

I would support it by happily providing my print/DNA. Though I am dubious of the cost/feasibility of a program so ambitious. How would we enforce compliance? Treat the holdouts like Vietnam draft dodgers?

02/10/13 12:15 am

Every service member, every cop and a whole lot of other people have provided one or both already. Have you heard of ANY abuses?

Virginia has one of the largest DNA databases in the world, and crime has gone down dramatically. The country should follow our lead.

such data can and will be eventually stole, lost, or hacked by someone with malicious intent. imagine what they can then do with that.

if you're loved ones were murdered or raped and they found fingerprints and DNA but no match in the system I'm sure most of you would change your votes to yes is it really that much of a stinking inconvenience to you? seriously please tell me how it would negatively impact your life by giving

You can't just declare something to be fact and then call it hypocrisy.

It has to actually happen first.

No idiot we don't support this for any reason whatsoever.

Hypocrisy: the fact that all the republicans who oppose this would support it if it applied only to Muslims.

You won't have friends for long if you brag about how smart you are
Quit trolling

Cuz they'd run your DNA, learn that you have a 90% chance of getting Altzheimer's by the te you're 62 and put you at the end of the Obamacare line for receiving any health care.
It's simply none of the governments damn business!!

Housemouse, people who brag about their IQs are socially retarded. Do the math and see what happens to that IQ in the real world.

02/09/13 6:18 am

What concerns me is those who voted yes have such little faith in the people that they want every citizens DNA and finger print. But they trust the government made up of these same people to not abuse this information!

02/08/13 11:28 pm

Recheck in order after the last election

02/08/13 10:57 pm

Any particular finger?

02/08/13 10:57 pm

When was the last time you checked???

02/08/13 10:48 pm

LEB- you expressed support for a database to store other people's DNA. The question was if you support a federal database to store ALL citizens DNA.
This isn't about you and your kids. This is about you using the force of government to collect evidence from everyone else for a future crime.

02/08/13 10:22 pm

Who says I'm forcing anyone to submit to this? I'm not God or the President. I'm just giving my opinion and my reasoning for it just like the rest of you. And to clarify, I am for the database to catch criminals who left DNA or prints behind, not to find my children if they ever disappear.

@ zimmer ok then if you guys agree what do you have to hide then President Bush wasnt wrong with getting terrorist talking on the phone. (I'm a bush supporter)

Um wow. this is truly creepy and it sincerely frightens me that nearly half of you said yes.

Zimmeress Make Me Laugh
02/08/13 9:59 pm

I agree with this. What do you have u have to hide?? I think it would be greatly used for crimes, getting people where they should be IN-OR OUT OF jail. People are in prison because of wrongful convictions. That's why there are so many cases coming up- people are being freed bc they took a DNA test.

Ok 1. Insurance should not have access to the files (that's mixing government and corporations, which I'm against) and 2. All presidents have expanded their power? ALL of them. So why can't Obama just do whatever he wants regardless. I mean 20-some terms of power expansion must have results in ...
