There will be a lot of yelling and screaming about it, the ACLU will do what it can...and Americans will do what they do when they don't agree with something like this...they will ignore it! My state, Pennsylvania, used to (and still may for all I know) ask people to notify the state if they saw a neighbor having appliances delivered from a neighboring state that had lower or no sales tax! I suppose some folks reported neighbors they didn't like, but most people just ignore those things. And unless someone sees something really outrageous or is very paranoid, I can't see too many of us rushing to our phones. And I would bet that what does get reported won't be of much use..."my new neighbor looks foreign" from little old ladies.
