Google it, they are already putting it in place. Phase 2 of that is probably where the drones carry weapons and can terminate any "undesirables". And all for our safety and "security purposes" of course. You may laugh but one day you may wake up to find the dream has become the nightmare reality. Let's hope not.
I've already accepted that you're our resident conspiracy theorist. I'm also well aware of what's going on in the law enforcement community. If you're concerned about drones, you should be equally concerned about the information for-profit companies collect from your daily habits: grocery store loyalty cards, credit card receipts, internet browsing and search history, etc. Information is a commodity and its market is in conflict with the current interpretation of the 4th Amendment. With the amount of moneyed interests lobbying for the ability to collect and monetize as much information about the American public as possible, and the almost complete lack of opposition, there's little doubt that we're marching steadily along the path to a total surveillance state, both public and private.
However, I find it to be a waste of time looking over my shoulder for potential government intrusion into my life. I have better things to do than worry about rendition.
To answer your original question - If they're not costing you anything and not causing any problems, leave them alone. I think it's inappropriate to start from the assumption that none of your cards will grow. I also don't see the need to close accounts unless there is a specific reason to do so - an upcoming annual fee, for example.
