Well folks it's been a long time, but I felt the need to ask this question. Does no one see where the United States and Europe are headed? Does no one see, or do you not care that our "elected" officials work tirelessly toward the furtherance of one world government? Hell I might even argue we're already there.
My family fled communistic regimes, apparently only to set up shop in what now appears more like a fascist regime. Camera's at every street corner these days are just the start. It is said that as we approach 500+ times per day on camera, that hardware/software is able to track your location in real-time. Nevermind the cell phones that everyone carries around, or the new generation of vehicle EDRs (GPS enabled black boxes) that every new vehicle must be equipped with. Certainly pay no attention to recently released facts from the FAA (in response to the EFF's lawsuit), showing what approved agencies were flying UAV drones for unlisted causes, in fact "Some of the entities on the COA list are unsurprising. For example, journalists have reported that Customs and Border Protection uses Predator drones to patrol the borders." Sure that makes sense! The article goes on further "It is also well known that DARPA and other branches of the military are authorized to fly drones in the US." This too, pretty common sense, although I question what branches of the military, and where given Posse Comitatus. The article continues "However, this is the first time we have seen the broad and varied list of other authorized organizations, including universities, police departments, and small towns and counties across the United States. The COA list includes universities and colleges like Cornell, the University of Colorado, Georgia Tech, and Eastern Gateway Community College, as well as police departments in North Little Rock, Arkansas; Arlington, Texas; Seattle, Washington; Gadsden, Alabama; and Ogden, Utah, to name just a few. The COA list also includes small cities and counties like Otter Tail, Minnesota and Herington, Kansas." I know I am going out on a limb here, but most of these location's don't make sense, especially from a privacy perspective. I know I have asked in the past, but clearly the answer is that privacy, it pretty much dead for the common man, and freedom…it died with it. (source)
The fact that we are so far in debt (now 15+ Trillion), in fact far more than the whole European Union combined, when China and the rest of our "creditors" (a.k.a. the World Banc, their Fed Reserve cronies, etc.) come calling what do you think is going to happen? Take into account that we're at a point where GDP is almost equal to debt (meaning BROKE), what will we as country do when our money is worth squat? I am not a conspiracy theorist per se, but I do believe in the rule that people in power want only one thing, more power. Money, and all the perks are simple side-effects of power.
It beg's the question, at least in my mind, of when (not if) the revolution will come. In every oppressive situation, man has revolted and not excepted what lay before him. At what point will people be unable to sustain the tax rates, the invasion of privacy, the losses of freedom, the loss of their core belief's, and much more to appease an increasingly oppressive regime. Folks, I have to say, it doesn't matter who is in office, be it Democrat or Republican, the "old guard" and the "old way" of doing things is dead! The actors and the audience simply don't realize it yet.
If I had my wish every politician, every lobbyist, every corporation would be put on notice. You are all fired!!! If you were in government before (no matter how), you NEVER will be again. I'd vote for changes to the Constitution, to further limit any elected officials from that point on to only ONE four year term. I don't care if any one is a GREAT politician or not, time is their enemy and corruption comes in many, many forms. D.C., and politics in general changes people and NOT for the better.
Political life should be as it was, a service to the community after which you "pass the baton", not a life long career that WE THE PEOPLE (YEA REMEMBER US???) are all on the hook for. I believe the Constitution should be amended to reflect a requirement for a balanced budget every year, to keep newly elected officials in check now, and into the future, with impeachment and swift removal from office for not doing so. I also believe lobbyists, and other corporate interests should be banned from being involved in government or politics ever again. Break that code of conduct, and the company and its assets become property of the people, or some such thing. The key is that WE THE PEOPLE must rise up, and take back control or we may never be able to again.
Look folks, it's not too late but please open your eyes, SEE & HEAR the truth for what it is, we are all slowly being cooked like the frog in the pan, our rights, beliefs and privacy stripped away by the day, so we don't see the stark truth. WAKE UP AMERICA, WAKE UP!!!!
