GOVERNMENT INTRUSION, LACK OF PRIVACY, REDUCTION IN INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS - WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Our government has now become what our Founding Fathers feared it would or could become. They worked so hard to warn us about what can happen when you let a government become powerful and centralized. They wrote about it everywhere. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Federalist Papers, and in all of their personal journals and writings. And now our government has become EXACTLY the monster that they feared, and it is doing EXACTLY what they predicted it would do.
It has destroyed your right to privacy. The Patriot Act and the NSA have unlimited power to spy on you as Obama and his administration proved that they did every day.
It has intruded on your personal life. The government tells you what you can say and what you can't - if you yell at someone with a bjurka its a hate crime. What bullshit. The government tells you where you can go and at what time of day you can go there and when you can't. The NSA spies on all your emails, text messages and phone conversations. It can look into your home, through your phone, track your phone and your car and your whereabouts, and it can look through the camera in your internet connected TV and laptop and see what you're doing.
It can now take your property without due process and without charging you of a crime. they can simply say they suspect you of something. This is insane. It's called Civil Asset Forfieture and its not only unconstitutional, it is evil and abusive and must be eliminated from ever happening again in our country. But yet it goes on, our government agencies love it and so does law enforecement who make smoney with it. But it means that you have to have a very large amount of trust that it won't be abused, and I'm sorry but I don't trust the government near enough to allow this to go on. It might be the single biggest abuse of Constitutional rights in America today.
The NSA and law enforcement can now listen to every call you make and read every email you write and every text you send. This is abuse. The goverment is not supposed to bespying on its own people, but that is exactly what the NSA and the FBI and the CIA are doing.
The government is systematically reducing your individual rights - your rights to free speech, your right to peaceably assemble, your right to protect yourself and your family, your right to private property, your 4th amendment right to be secure in our home without being searched and having your property seized without probable cause...its all gone. The police routinely ignore most of your Constitutional rights including the 4th, 5th and 6th amendment rights. The government is issuing new taxes without your vote. They're jacking your traffic fines to such insane levels that it's violating the 8th amendment. They are issuing unconstitutional laws without a vote. Your right as an American to vote on such things is imperative, yet those in power at both the Federal and State level (in California in particular) don't care. They're running crazy and out of control issuing taxes on things they don't like, like cigarettes, or massive money makers, like gasoline, and using the money for whatever they want - mostly to pay for massive pensions and bloated budgets.
And what are you doing about it? Nothing.
You go about your day and watch this slow destruction of our country and you do nothing. You're a shithead for not doing something. At least I'm writing about it, bringing it to tens of thousands of people's attention every week, which I admit is not enough. I have to do more as well. Which brings me to a question I have asked myself...What more can I do?
Well, you can start by taking a stand for Constitutional rights and learn what they are. Then you can learn to identify when someone (like an asshole cop) is trying to take those rights away or get you to waive those rights.
Then you can join something. Joining the Republican Party is a good start since they have more respect for the Constitution than the alternative. You should then join the NRA even if you don't have a gun and become a life member for $500. The NRA is about protecting the Constitution, not just the Second Amendment. Most people are confused about that fact. Speak out against people that are confused. Talk to your children and family about the importance of our Judeo Christian values, the importance of the Founding Fathers beliefs and why they constructed our country the way they did - with a healthy disrespect for government and oppressive laws. Commit to the fact that you are a conservative, a Patriot, and you'll be damned if anyone is going to destroy what created this greatest country on earth...the Constitution and the blood of patriots like you.
REMAIN VIGILANT AMERICA!!!
