Suspends Constitution in Permanent World War on Terror
- "By making
a few subtle changes to a regulation in the U.S. Code titled “Defense
Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies” the military has quietly
granted itself the ability to police the streets without obtaining
prior local or state consent, upending a precedent that has been in
place for more than two centuries."
in the Neocon Coffin
, by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. - "Be
decent. Be human. Do not be deceived by the Joe Bidens, the John
McCains, the Barack Obamas and Hillary Clintons. Reject the biggest
government program of them all. Peace builds. War destroys."

Liberty Was Also
Attacked in Boston
, by Ron Paul - "Forced lockdown of a city.
Militarized police riding tanks in the streets. Door-to-door armed
searches without warrant. Families thrown out of their homes at
gunpoint to be searched without probable cause. Businesses forced to
close. Transport shut down. These were not the scenes from a
military coup in a far off banana republic, but rather the scenes just
over a week ago in Boston as the United States got a taste of martial
Terrorism in Boston,
by Fred Reed
- "Terrorism gives them an ideal pretext for
Sovietization, and there are no longer many safeguards. Tell the public
it is in danger, that you will protect it if they just give up
freedoms, and bingo."

World Secretly Does
- "Unfortunately, the global elite seem
absolutely obsessed with the idea of a global currency, a one world
economic system and a global government."
- by Wendy McElroy - A police state is
generally defined as a totalitarian government that exerts extreme and
pervasive social, political and economic control over peaceful
citizens. Ayn Rand called it “the ultimate inversion...the stage where
the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens
may act only by permission.”
US Declares War on
- by Becky Akers - "...more pernicious is "the Department’s"
deliberate misreading of the Bill of Rights. That document never refers
to "citizens" but purposefully to "people." Nor does it enumerate their
rights: it cannot, because said rights are infinite in number. Rather,
it constrains the State."
'Reform' Will Turn the US Into a Police State
- by Ron Paul - "...turning the US into a

may or may not put into their own bodies?

- "The shaping of the will of Congress and the
choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to
the country’s equestrian classes"
Presidents who have ignored the Constitution should not have been have
been impeached, they should have been applauded! It's an old
quaint document which has nothing to do with modern America.
Instead, WE (the mob) should be able run our own country without
annoying little restrictions like Habeas Corpus, a right to trial,
privacy, free speech, and other protections of individual
liberties. Forget the Amendment process the Founders left us to
change things as needed as the times changed. Can't WE all just
agree on how to run OUR country for US? Pffft, what a waste of
perfectly good parchment ;)
- ”Corporate wealth translates
into political power through campaign financing, corporate lobbying and
the revolving door of jobs between government and industry; and
political power translates into further wealth through tax cuts,
deregulation and sweetheart contracts between government and industry.
Wealth begets power, and power begets wealth.”

Adviser: Obama as 'Ruthless and Indifferent to Rule of Law' as Bush
- Americans 'unaware of the scale of the drone program ... and the
destruction it has caused in their name'
- by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano - "The historical
reality of the Second Amendment’s protection of the right to keep and
bear arms is not that it protects the right to shoot deer. It protects
the right to shoot tyrants, and it protects the right to shoot at them
effectively, thus, with the same instruments they would use upon us. If
the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto had had the firepower and ammunition that
the Nazis did, some of Poland might have stayed free and more persons
would have survived the Holocaust."
"...this week has been so detrimental to individual liberties and so
favorable to never-ending, unaccountable secret war, that it’s hard to
imagine we ever extricated ourselves from those dark days of post-9/11
The New Soviet Asylum
- "In a country in
which everyone has access to machetes, ice picks, guns, and straight
razors, let’s keep putting little boys on half-understood
psychotropics, Ritalin, expose all of them to crystal. Big Pharma is
too important to die. Kids don’t seem to be."
The mainstream media continues to tell us what a “great job” the Obama

meet any crisis."
