The police state continues to cloud above our heads both literally and figuratively. It has come to the point that a George Orwell sequel is due any day now. Not a day passes that we don’t hear about terrorist activity or how Americans are being protected from dangerous terrorist cells and lone wolfs living amongst us.
What is the definition of terrorism? The term appears to be totally fictitious. Our own government, by most definitions, has become the most dangerous terrorist on the planet. Terrorism might as well have been implemented to allow America to do whatever she damn well pleases. This seems redundant since Americans do whatever they damn well please anyways, but that is neither here nor there.
This isn’t some kind of conspiracy theory. The surveillance state began to outreach her boundaries in the late 90’s. The monster really began growing a few years before 9/11. The roots can be traced back long before Bush and Obama. Hoover, FDR, and Nixon all had their hands in the pot for the same types of information. The difference between Obama and the aforementioned is previous Presidents had America’s best interest at heart when they dropped the ball. Today there is nothing our government is doing that is in our country’s peoples’ best long term interests.
As an American I am appalled how our government uses terrorism to justify countless violations of both national and international laws. We continue to use drones to disrupt, intimidate, and cause harm to innocent foreigners. It is not only morally wrong, but also causes irreversible psychological harm to the people that are under constant surveillance.
I hope that one day someone has enough cojones to run our country without bias. Of course, that will require pissing off most lobbyists and corporations to the point of certain assassination. Sigh.
As we prepare to close the calendar on 2013, don’t forget to count your blessings. The road is about to get very bumpy. God Bless Us All. Each and Every One.
