Never forget when THEY stole your 4th amendment right with the "Patriot" Act.

Never forget when the federal reserve gives unlimited resources to the banks and nothing to the people

Never forget when THEY started a war against Iraq that was based on lies and heavily profited Dick Cheney's company Haliburton by the BILLIONS per year.

Never forget when they dumped US soldiers remains in a landfill in Virginia.

Never forget when the supreme court ruled that corporations are people and strip searches for everyone.

Never forget the US is home to the world's largest political prisoner system from bogus drug laws originated on racism.

NEVER FORGET THEIR LIES. THEY HAVE MANY MORE TO COME.

They are pushing the envelope to see how much they can get away with. How much of our constitutional rights can they take away from us before there is a huge uproar/protests. They want to see if they can pull us into another war/oil profiteering war that they will continue to cleverly call "a war on terrorism". They don't care how many lives are lost (troops killed) to reach their objectives. They don't give two darns about us. Our Congress completely ignores the American people, and does things all the time against the will of the American people. They have pushed Fascist bills (that may soon become laws) such as S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill that may pass through the House this week and into the hands of President Obama to approve. This bill picks up where the Patriot Act left off. It is a complete rape of the constitution and the inalienable rights of all Americans. WE will have a police state in this country. Right now at this time the U.S. Government is hiring internment special guards. http://www.goarmy.com/careers-and-jobs/browse-career-and-job-categories/legal-and-law-enforcement/internment-resettlement-specialist.html Coincidence? I think not. All the while, mainstream media is mostly NOT talking about this. Only a few select news organizations are talking about, but most Americans do not know about this bill and that is the saddest thing right there. Most Americans have not a clue that their rights and freedoms are going out the window. The rug is going to be pulled from under them. By the time they wake up form "their coma", it will be too late, the dirty deed was already done. This is what I find so sad.

We have been screwed all the way around from the greed on Wall Street that we will be taxed into the ground for. To the Fascist bills soon to be laws coming out of D.C. This is no longer the country of my youth--America, the land of the free, home of the brave. This is fast becoming the Fascist States of America which i will never pledge allegiance to.

What we are seeing is the beginning of the end of our country. ALL AMERICANS NEED TO WAKE UP AND RECLAIM THEIR COUNTRY. THE AMERICAN DREAM IS BEING DESTROYED AND WHAT WE WILL BE LIVING IS THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE.

Check this out. The House is doing something about the detainee sections of the bill. http://armedservices.house.gov/index.cfm/files/serve?File_id=23d194d7-78c9-4c57-b2d9-31bc3bb7daeb

Holy shit... War against Africa and Yemen? Really? Is that even necessary? Gah that's fucked up.

Yes, isn't amazing how our terrorist/enemy country list keeps getting longer and longer. Some of these war-monger Congressmen are itching for us to go into WWIII. You should have heard Sen. Lindsey Graham at it a month ago--he wanted us to go to war with Iran.

Oh, yes oil profiteering--oh, I mean "war on terrorism" is an ever expanding war. I really feel bad for our troops--these war-mongers will keep them in wars for their profit--what a darn shame!

Never forget that the supreme court elected George Bush.

Homeland? I grew up in the United States of America, a friendly place that just wanted to be friends with other friendly countries.

I never voted on whether I wanted our country to become an empire, did you?

If Romney wasnt part of the same bought out system as Obama, he would be slamming the shit out of him on this, just like any of us would (well, except for maybe 4 or 5 that post on this site and claim to be changers).

What a sham. The fact that things like this can be passed, and the average joe doesnt even know, is not cool at all.

The world is a battlefield

What's truly bizarre about this "battlefield" idea, the military claiming jurisdiction over terrorists in the U.S., is that it appears to give legitimacy to the previously absurd claims by domestic and foreign terrorists that they are prisoners of war protected by the Geneva Convention.

I mean, can you imagine that someone who just blew up a bus in the middle of New York would be held for a few years under military control, then released if al Qaida formally agrees to disband? Everyone assumes that the military is simply a pretense to lock people up and throw away the key without trial, but what if the authorities really do go by the letter of the law and make deals like that? Once they are given the freedom to do so, how do they resist the temptation to deliver "peace" by such means from becoming a compulsion?

If they identify or are identified as al Qaida they are rightfully enemy combatants; no matter, as illegal aliens they are NOT entitled to the civil protection of our law and their ONLY hope is the protection of our Geneva Convention.

If anyone has links to Tea Party activists, this should be an issue we could agree on.
