Like the Third Reich before it, the current Reich in Washington DC is working feverishly, as fast as they think the semi-conscious citizenry will allow it, to create a new, high-tech uber state.
It started a long time ago, as any semi-serious reading of US History will show, but it really intensified with the "war on drugs," during the 1980's and '90's. The "war on drugs" was really a War on the Bill of Rights. A quick reading of the BOR will clearly bring out wholesale violations of the Fourth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Amendments. A second look shows violations of the First (no positive epictions of drug use in the media), the Second (denying the right to weapons use on the least pretext) Third (creation of ultra-militarized police sub-agencies) and Fifth (plea bargaining to encourage self-incrimination). Every blood-sucking parasite above GS10 in the Reich should be fired and thrown into a prison cell (after receiving the the full due process they've been ignoring for the past thirty-plus years) for draconian violation of their oaths of office, as well as the thousands of counts of legal violations they've perpetrated against the poor folks that have been unfortunate enough to have blundered into the legal system of a government gone totalitarian.
Victims of the "war on drugs" routinely have their property confiscated, often without ever being charged with a crime.
If all this isn't enough, the destruction of the World Trade towers has ushered in an intensification of the destruction of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Now, along with the "war on drugs, we're also fighting a "war on terror."
Problem is, most of the weapons of the "wot," --"homeland security," the "patriot act" and a dozen or more other assaults on American freedom, are all aimed at US!
We're after bin Laden and the evil al queda bunch, and I have nothing against that--if we pursue them with diligence and intelligence--but why further restrict the liberty of Americans? The answer has to be to further advance the agenda of creating the perfect police state. Given the evidence, what other conclusion can be reached?
The current atrocity is the Congressional effort to create a National ID Card. They had a fairly god National ID in the Social Security card. You can't do many things in a bank without giving them your SS number, for example. This is utterly unConstitutional. Note that until a certain fairly recent date, SS cards carried the admonition, "Not to Be Used for Purposes of Identification." And of diminishing effectiveness as well, given that SS cards are very easy to counterfeit.
The federal nazis are now about to require that the states federalize their Driver's Licenses. From what I read, this means a national standardization with your "permanent record" on the data strip on the back.
Any cop, banker, employer, doctor or librarian will be able to know everything about you--more than you want them to know. Then, we can just wait patiently until the identity thieves weasel their way into your life.
Then, even worse, we'll see a new crime: someone who wants illegal ID can just find someone similar-looking, kill him, and take his ID.
There are many ways this could go which haven't yet occurred to me. None of them are good, short of a full voter rejection of these usurptions. With nearly everyone philosophically asleep after their bout with the government schools, that's not likely to happen.
They've killed Freedom! Those bastards!
