We are losing our freedoms at a rate unparalleled in American history. We’ve gone from being the envy of the world in terms of political and economic freedom to the point where we are now starting to resemble Nazi Germany more than we do a free country. This is not mere hyperbole.
We now have warrantless spying on all American citizens, groping and molesting of air travelers, militarization of local police forces, massive buildup of the Department of Homeland Security and demonization of proponents of the Second Amendment. Does this really sound like a free country?
Regardless of your perspective on what happened on 9/11, one thing is for sure: Our freedoms have been under constant attack since that day. From the unpatriotic Patriot Act to the Gestapo-like NDAA, the so-called “war on terror” has been turned into a war on the liberties of the American people.
We have willingly traded liberty for security, and we now have neither. What we do have is a recipe for tyranny: the consolidation of political power in the hands of one man: Der Fuehrer Barack Obama. And don’t think that the Republicans are going to save the day. They’re just as bad as the Democrats. Remember, it was George W. Bush who laid the groundwork for what we see happening today.
Sadly, many among us are so historically and constitutionally illiterate that we fail to notice the noose of tyranny that is collectively tightening around our necks. The political elite in Washington prey upon our ignorance.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you have not read and studied the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, please do so. And then hold elected leaders accountable. As Thomas Jefferson penned, “... bind (them) down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”
