It seems as though the Patriot Act heralded a new wave of democracy that was to come. Yes, it is disturbing and is no surprise. The sad thing is, what recourse does one have in securing his or her rights.
I am beginning to believe that Government " For the people by the people" has slowly turned into Government for" Some People by Some people" and now is Government by the "Corporations For the Corporations". My solution is to give government back her civil rights and take back MY God given HUMAN RIGHTS! I was born free and will die free!

You were born an asset and resource of the USA incorporated. Social security number tagged. You don't have any "God given rights." The rights you have are afforded to you from people that are more powerful than you. Freedom, you'll never know until the day that you pick up your gun and it will only last as long as you can hold out. Your conversation reminds me of Geronimo and the Apache.
Some battles are worth fighting. Some things are just instinct, like the reasons why the chameleon changes it's color. Survival of the fittest baby, and we still here.
Government is concerned with one thing, government. Let's not be foolish, the good old boy network has and always will exist. They do things to try to placate us from time to time, but realistically, if you are not on the inside, you are on the outside. Many of our people are on the inside and care about greasing their own palms and creating networks for themselves and their families. This is the difference between this generation and generations past. Power and money were not their focus, freedom was. Now, it is simply about power and money-PERIOD. Dr. King must be turning over in his grave!
