OMG! The lunatic fringe is now beginning to lose (whatever was left of) their ever loving minds!
It all began after 9/11, and it all began under G.W. Bush43; the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, AND the Democrats signed off on it, along with the Republicans, where it has been reported that no one read ANY OF THE LEGISLATION put forth to create either the Patriot Act, or the Department of Homeland Security.
Someone had to have read it, because "someone" wrote it!
I knew as early as the morning of Tuesday September 11, 2001 that America was about to change, and not for the better.
Here we are; eleven years later.
And like the boy who cried wolf, it's hard to take "conservatives" seriously when many of them are just now realizing the pandora's box that they were all just SO EAGER to open in the days and months after 9/11/01.
Just a reminder folks, the United States Government doesn't "give rights" to it's citizens.
The United States Constitution was originally laid out to limit the rights OF our Government over "We the People."
Divide et impera
But so long as "conservatives" and "liberals," "Tea Party" and "Progressives" are focusing on what divides us as Americans, Uncle Sam will keep circling the nets against us.
