Slaves or not: the American police state

As I sat at my computer the other day, preparing for Sunday’s radio show, a thought crossed my mind. It troubled me that the people of this country were so shallow.
I found it disturbing that their thought process didn’t go past what Rush Limbaugh had said about Sandra Fluke or that Barack Obama took money from Bill Maher after his comments about Sara Palin.
We seem to get all upset about trivial matters, but not about the fact that America is being turned into a police state.
After 9/11 the PATRIOT Act was passed and took away some of all of our Constitutional freedoms.
Illegal wire taps were just the first stage, there was more to come. Next it was being forced to take off your shoes and belt at the airport, place your other belonging on a conveyor belt to be x-rayed and go through a metal detector.
Since Barack Obama took office your loss of freedoms has escalated. Go to the airport now and be x-rayed, groped and in many ways treated like a terrorist. If you refuse you will not be able to travel and if you complain you could be arrested.
