So, you not convinced we are living in a fascist dictatorship yet? OK, have you read that Holder has just said it is legal for the U.S. can MURDER its own citizens as long as they are overseas? It’s true, read it here.
“The American people can be — and deserve to be — assured that actions taken in their defense are consistent with their values and their laws.”
Now, admittedly, he claims to be talking about American citizens engaged in an act of terrorism, but then, the U.S. govt. has declared Christians, LAWFUL gun owners, members of the TEA Party and even U.S. military veterans to be terrorists. So if you are any of these, you best not leave the U.S. or Holder may snuff you and claim legal authority.
There’s just one little problem with all of this: our laws say you must try to convict someone BEFORE you can execute them, and even then, they are entitled to an appeal. If you carry out an execution before you have tried, convicted and granted the automatic appeal, then this is not called an execution, it is called an assassination – which is another word for murder. You see, as much as you and I may agree with the desire and intent (and I do), killing a U.S. citizen who is still “presumed innocent” is murder – period! Now, exactly HOW does one get either a trial or appeal if Holder/Obama just send a drone to kill you with a hellfire because they declared you a terrorist is beyond me?
Another thing that should bother anyone who actually cares about being rational here is that this is the same Administration that bends over backward to give these rights to real terrorists – the very same rights they now claim they do not have to grant to U.S. citizens. Help me out here: exactly when did we all fall through the looking-glass?
Oh, and before any of you from the GOP get worked up over any of this, STOP! This crap started on YOUR president’s watch. That’s right, Republicans, BUSH started this crap. So what do you say we ALL start worrying less about the other guy’s Party and start cleaning our own houses before there’s no country left to fight over, huh?
When you start using my enemy’s reasoning and tactics to protect me, then who – exactly – is my enemy: them, or you?
