It is time to eliminate the CIA. It has turned malignant.

Obama has black-ops hiding witin the CIA which John Brennan would have control over. This technology is being used to devastate countries by creating supposed Acts of God that are in reality man-made. The Patriot Act opened the door for the President to declare Martial Law instilling a Police State based on these generated Acts of God thus subjecting all living beings to a dictatorship that can kill anyone on Obama's command. The illusion of 'Rights' has been destroyed by the Federal Government who want our total blind obedience without question. Rand Paul is leading the last cry for our freedom but to what avail?

when the government makes plans to kill it's own people using cowardly methods such as drones, there is no democracy there. this country operates for the sole purpose of make a miniscule portion of its population megawealthy. that this crime was even considered suggests sadly, the US and human kind have a long way to go to evolve to a state where democracy is even possible. President Chavez succeeded in ways the US could NEVER achieve!
