Case in point…

Okay how are they going to be able to identify what is in the mail?
Are they going to search every piece of mail? Will they need a search warrant?
Will they need the cooperation of the USPS?
When I mail order my hormones they came in a plain white box, the return address only contained the address not the company name.
What about drugs coming in from Canada or overseas?
The Republicans want to control your body.
The Republicans wants to get between your doctor and you.
The Republicans wants to inspect your mail.
The Republicans wants your neighbors to be an informant.
