We Are Not Under Dictatorship?-Prove It!
Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 13, 2013
Totalitarian rule has been on the rise more or less since the first Adams. Peaks have occurred during the Lincoln, the two Roosevelt, Wilson and notably Bush and Obama administrations.
The president declares war, not congress, in direct violation of the Constitution. Laws via executive order are implemented bypassing Congress. Private communication of all sorts is subject to scrutiny by the government. The government tells our neighbors to report dissenters. Dissenters are labeled “radical”, “extremist” and lately “racist”. Secret Service agents can arrest anyone for conversations they deem inappropriate. Ron Paul is labeled a radical extremist for promoting peace!
President authorized kill lists now include US citizens on US soil as well as anyone acting against any foreign government (WSJ 10 Feb). Essentially anyone anywhere in the world, doing anything deemed by a Washington bureaucrat to be acting against a government du jour, is subject to assassination. Most of the Guantanamo prisoners held for years have been found innocent and many released. Tell me then, how reliable are spur of the moment remote controlled strikes planned thousands of miles away in the WH basement? The Washington Post recently said many Middle East countries, particularly Yemen, regularly whitewash strikes on innocents calling them “terrorist suspects”.
I get distressed when “suspects” are assassinated. The MSM and our President cheer.
One day Mubarek, Qaddafi and Hussein are our friends, the next they aren’t. SoS Clinton and VP Biden were for Mubarek before they were against him a few weeks later. These are dangerous times for the outspoken. Especially when our “leaders” change allegiance with the political wind.
The Erie Times sings Obama’s praises on a regular basis. A recent editorial gushed over how Obama swore to uphold the Constitution during inauguration.
I ask the Erie Times or anyone else to explain how, when the government can imprison and assassinate US citizens without cause or due process of any sort, we are not under a dictatorship.
Be seeing you
