Get it right, call the annual registration “fee” what it REALLY is:
01) FEE: The price one pays as remuneration for services.

Nazi Germany used these tactics. First it was an effort to make Germany a safer place, to protect the citizens. But the reality was to cleanse what THEY saw as a problem, what THEY called a lesser race. The use of brutality, extortion and segregation was deemed necessary to control and then KILL the Jewish people. The U.S. Government has deemed sex offenders as the new Jews.
