It reads like something out of an old school sci-fi novel, the kind of specious shape of things to come that get both freedom loving rebels and conspiracy theory believing activists up in arms.

We’ve even seen political parties embrace the notion of doing all that they can to get the government out of our business.

One of the main Tea Party talking points has always been the idea of “being microchipped.” You see these stories coming across your social media feed all the time.

No, this is not some fake news nonsense.
