wouldn´t it be great if the american people do what others in the world are doing (egypt, syria,...): oppose your government and kick the MF´s out of office.. since the first admin. of bush the rights of americans and others around the world have been infringed upon for the sake of our protection against terrorists (our own governments being the biggest terrorist organisations around.). slowly but surely we are being stripped of our rights and before we know it and can do anything about it, we are all at risk of being detained or even shot!! if we do not want this, we should fight against it.. civil war II of USA

As the federal government has continued to spiral out of control with expansionism of unconstitutional law and the increase in the number of fascistic bureaucracies, our freedoms have been squashed while the national debt has been spiralling out of control in direct correlation with the squashing of our rights and freedoms.

Both Print and Electronic Media, especially TV media, have become the official State Propaganda Machine.

What we are currently witnessing and sadly, experiencing, is a government that has abandoned all vestiges or even the pretense of Constitutional Law.
