"America, if you think the worst is behind you, think again
If you think things are bad now, just wait, it's going to get worse. We're already living under a form of martial law, with our emails and cell phone conversations being spied on w/o a warrant. Satellites fly overhead and peer into our homes and track the moves of "persons of interest."
A "person of interest" is anyone who's ballsy enough to say "Stop, this had gone far enough."
They can legally use no-knock warrants, come in with guns blazing and it's an "Oops, sorry," if they got the wrong house.
When is the last time you heard some cop or federal agent go to prison for shooting an unarmed citizen during a botched raid?
We don't have money for health care, but the various goon squads, like the ATF, DEA, FBI etc are bristling with weapons making them look more like a platoon of Green Berets.
And we have no problem with funding over 800 military bases around the world to protect our "interests."
Our interests? More like the interests of AT&T, ExxonMobil and GE.
Ditto for the local cops, who just love getting military technology and weapons.
Who are they so afraid of?
We the People.
1.7 million lost their homes in 2007.
2.5 million in 2008.
In 2009, it will get worse.
The ones in power are like junkies addicted to some drug. Try getting between a meth head and his next fix and see what happens.
DC and Wall Street will continue to loot, pillage and plunder this country until there is nothing left.
Yes, the same ones who take that oath of office to uphold the Constitution. An oath which they treat like used toilet paper.
And forget writing or calling your DC rep. Remember how effective that was when people deluged the Congress with phone calls, emails and faxes saying NO to the Banker Bailout Bill?
If we don't want to take a stand and fight for our freedom, then you'd better get used to that boot stomping on your neck.
