The group 9-12 Association is at the head of a local and national movement to dump smart meters.
The website for the organization indicates smart meters are contributing to an invasion of privacy by energy companies and the government.
Local members of the group have actually called local energy companies and insisted their smart meters be replaced by the old analog meters.
From the website:
YOUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY IS AT STAKE!
What will it take for Texans to realize that their right to privacy is at stake?
We have been warning Texans for years about the threat that the Smart Grid and the Smart Meters (Advanced Meters) present to their freedom and their Constitutional Rights under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. Why are Texans still not listening?
Is everyone so comfortable with what the Texas legislature and the various Texas agencies are doing that they actually believe that the bureaucracies have our individual rights protected? We can attest to the fact that they do not! While there are a few representatives and senators who are trying to help Texans protect their rights, there are so few of them that without the average Texan’s help and input, they cannot push for our safety and protection. Every Texan should be EXTREMELY concerned!
We know that discussing or learning about how the Public Utility Commission of Texasworks is pretty boring, but it is of utmost importance that every Texan understands what is at stake. While most people cannot fathom a possibility of any risks to the public’s health from the meters, there is proof that theadverse health effects are real and that many Texans are suffering from those effects! If you cannot wrap your head around the health issues, there is overwhelming proof that the smart meters are invading your privacy! Even the Energy Industry is now admitting that our privacy is being invaded and they are telling us that their ability to turn our appliances on and off is happening all the time. They also admit that hackers can and do hack into our computers via appliances like refrigerators.
Our technology is changing at such a rapid pace that the average consumer cannot keep up with how the new technology infiltrates our homes, our jobs, our towns and cities, and our entire lives. The time is now for every Texan to stand together against the infringement upon our privacy rights! Texas is the key to undoing the damage that our current administration has done to the entire country! Our stand here will affect every American!
Won’t YOU join with us in this fight to save our freedom?
