Police State: USPS, DOE, IRS, FEC, GSA, DEA, FBI, NSA, DoS, DoD Spying on You
Aug 06, 2013
“We have met the enemy and he is us,” thus sayeth the old cartoon character Pogo about man’s capacity to screw things up.
The folks who brought you Woodstock, opposed the Vietnam War, espoused Flower-Power and told us “All We Need is Love” have effectively instituted, nurtured and supported the largest, most obtrusive police state that has ever existed in the history of the United States. Even at its most powerful, contending with an internal rebellion, Abraham Lincoln’s government didn’t have 1/100th the reach of today’s police state.
Yes, the Hippies who once wore combat fatigues, long hair and preached peace now wear dark suits, power-ties and preach war at elite spas like Martha’s Vineyard.
You don’t believe me?
As a prank, get together with your friends and pretend like you’re domestic terrorists on the phone for a few weeks. Talk about bombing malls, search pressure cookers on the Internet, along with homemade explosives and see how long it takes for the cops trained in military-style operations to show up at you door with a battering ram.
I especially dare Obama supporters to become this type of prankster.
Or just pretend that you consider the term “patriot” to be, well… patriotic.
Join a group like Oathkeepers, made up of veterans who are “patriotic” enough to think that the military service oath they took to preserve and defend the constitution was real.
It seems that espousing the idea that we should disobey illegal orders, as Oathkeepers does–which by the way is already the law under the Uniform Code of Military Justice– is somehow…well I can’t use the word “unpatriotic,” unless it refers to itemizing deductions; or “citizen” unless it refers to the U.N. or show pictures of the American flag at a place where the flag was attacked, so I’ll just call it… disloyal.
