Since when do we as Americans have to prove who we are as we travel the highways inside of the United States? Was there a change made to the Constitution that I'm not aware of? Did the Fourth Amendment have an expiration date written in the fine print somewhere? Did it become null and void at some point and nobody mentioned it? As far as I know, the Fourth Amendment still exists a little, right? Or was the TSA that Dubya created the beginning of the end of that pointless and stupid Fourth Amendment?

That's why thirty years later these checkpoints still exist - they've never really been challenged until recently. DHS knows that what they're doing is un-Constitutional and they don't give a fuck. Who are we to question their motives? Stupid serfs! After all, they're doing us a favor keeping us "safe" from the Boogieman by interrogating and violating law-abiding Americans' rights.
This short little clip pretty well illustrates how the DHS knows they have no right or authority under the Constitution to harass, interrogate and search Americans traveling inside our borders when they've broken no laws. Otherwise the two dudes in the car would've had the cavity search of their lives after receiving 50,000 volts from Agent Yesman's tazer.
Setting up these checkpoints up to 100 miles inside the U.S. borders and drilling Americans with questions about where they're coming from, where they're heading, what they've been doing, and yes, even asking their citizenship is all designed to soften our reactions to even more Constitutional infringement and theft of our rights by the gestapo in the future. I'm sick of just watching them steal it from us. When is enough enough?
