Many times, I have posted to sound the alarm bells. This nation is quickly becoming a tyrannical police State. The signs are everywhere, but no one wants to face them because it means making a choice: remaining silent, as the Germans did in the 1930’s, or standing up to it and risking the most likely consequences. There was a time in this nation when people understood that there are worse fates than death, but those days must have passed us by. If they hadn’t, then stories such as these would have the sons and daughters of liberty marching – ARMED – against this government:
The 4th Amendment has been “regulated” away – without Amendment and, thus, in total violation of the Constitution:
Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that’s when she found it — a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight. She said, “I was furious. They never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.”
They’ve done the same with the 2nd Amendment, and are working on the 1st. I mean, honestly, you have no Constitutional protections left, as evidenced by the blatant disregard for the double jeopardy provision exhibited in the federal government’s witch h8unt for Zimmerman’s blood.
Then there is the “civilian defense force” the feds are putting together. It is just as well armed and trained as the military, or don’t you remember?
In a free nation, risk is accepted as an inherent part of liberty. A free people knows that a militarized police force is a threat to their personal liberty because there is no one to protect them from the police. This is why “security” is only used and accepted as an excuse to violate individual rights in a police State and never in a free and self-governing society.
Our law enforcement – especially federal — is becoming more and more militaristic, another characteristic of the police State:
Is it time to reconsider the militarization of American policing?
And it is more than just the police:
(BTW: That one is from the HuffingtonPost)
Which then begs the question: If the freakin’ Department of Education has a SWAT team, then why in the name of Sam Hill do we need a DHS?
Do I need to address the connection between universal surveillance and the police State, or show how PRISM effectively represents Orwell’s 1984 on steroids?
People, there is one maxim of military history that has no known exception: if they build it, they WILL use it – always, every time. Now, how many more dots do we need to connect before we start seeing the big picture here?
WARNING: the only people who think this is hyperbole are those who are ignorant of the lessons of history and blind to the repeating of history as it happens around them.
