This is completely off-the-cuff, without editing. I've read a couple of news items concerning the establishment
of Martial Law (in the guise of "Homeland Security"). It appears that Tom Ridge, director of Homeland Security has proposed
to give the armed forces the right to search and seizure, arrest, and other powers over American citizens that have been exclusive
to law enforcement.
This means that, without a warrant, the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marines can enter any privately owned property and
sack it. Without any recourse to the Law. Both sides of the spectrum (Democrats and Republicans) are supporting
this, and seeking ways around the established laws against it.
If this is successful, no one is safe. The government can pull your name out of a hat, and unconstitutionally search
your property, and seize what "evidence" that they deem is needed to build a case against you.
Just yesterday, I was wondering if the last rant seemed too paranoid. Today's news confirmed that I'm not.
The federal government is overstepping its boundaries, in the name of the security of the citizens. When it is, in fact,
trying to strip the citizens of any personal security that we have left.
They are denying the governed any choice in this.
Each of us, no matter what we believe, is a potential target for unlawful search and seizure, arrest, or worse, should
this state of Martial Law be enacted.
Think I'm taking this to too much of an extreme? If you do, I hope that you have a comfortable job within the New
World Order. I hope that you can live with your complacency.
I hope that your children grow into placid sheep that don't try to break the chains of conformity. I hope that
they can live without freedom.
