Everyone jokes about it, but the reality is far worse than we might expect. Daily Kos had an interesting article today that demonstrates WE are the next target of the American government. While I am inclined to question the veracity of this program, I wouldn't put it past the American government under the so-called leadership of this President.
It reminds me of a couple of quotes:
...a government is a living organism. Like every living thing its prime characteristic is the instinct to survive.
Power is not static; it cannot be frozen and preserved like food; it must grow or die.
The existence of this "program" shows exactly how far we have strayed from those core American ideals that supported the birth of this nation. I have called for revolution in the past, but these kinds of governmental actions proves that we no longer live in the free society envisioned by our forefahters. Revolution, regardless of the form, may be our only salvation to prevent the continued perversion of the Constitution.
