I have a good friend named LP, that tends to belittle me when I try and speak to him about about certain current events and the state of America. Much of the root of his ridicule stems from my views on the prospect of having another Clinton in the White House, the so-called threat of terrorism, the police state in which we now live, and the very uncomfortable subject of civilian inmate work camps, constructed right here in the United States by Kellog Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton. And while I admit my political views are a bit extreme, he thinks they are ultimately skewed because I read alternative internet news sources. In other words, he thinks that a lot what I believe has no little or basis in reality.
There is a noted historian that has made the analogy of presenting unpleasant facts to someone akin to shining a bright light into the eyes of a person in a deep sleep. What do you think would be the reaction of the person who is sleeping comfortably that is suddenly awakened in such a manner? They would instinctively lash out, withdraw from the light and attempt to go back to sleep of course. This is exactly what my friend does, blocks out whatever I explain to him and goes back to sleep. Without even knowing, LP also uses various, preconditioned methods for protecting himself from harsh realities. These methods include, active denial when confronted with the obvious, and of course as previously stated, outright ridiculing any topics in which he does not believe.
So what does LP refuse to believe and or acknowledge? Well, mainly the fact that our the US government, through FEMA and NORTHCOM, has now completed the construction of a militaristic police state through various anti-terrorist laws and presidential directives since 1962. These laws are supposed to protect America, or more accurately, to protect American interests. But upon closer inspection, they are so vaguely worded that it gives the president or other official the power to deem anyone they deem an undesirable or a threat to national security without any evidence.
What I attempt to explain to him is that most of these laws aren't even necessarily being used on Americans yet. They may never be used on the average person who keeps their head down and goes along with whatever evil they decide to dictate including forced inoculations, national draft, confiscation of firearms or private property. The bottom line is that these laws are there and they weren't just put there because the government just likes to write thousand page documents just for fun. They don't give corporations billions of dollars in no bid contracts to construct camps that can hold over 800,000 people if they don't intend on rounding up 800,000 people.
But the average American, including LP is not capable of noticing these changes. Why? Because most people just don't read, and some simply don't care. They are purposely kept distracted and in the dark by endless streams of sexually provocative images on television, or they are desensitized by violence in the media. If you think any of this is by accident, you should think again.
Others realize that there is something wrong, but are either too distracted by everyday life, or feel that they are powerless to do anything to stop it.
"What," LP says? "Here? In America? No, that could never happen here!"
When I ask him why not here in America, he says, "There are people fighting for us; there are people who care!"
I always assume he's referring to some great Democratic leader, like a Hillary Clinton who will come and save America and turn back all this harmful legislation and end the madness inflicted by the evil Bush Administration. However, the Democrats have been a willing accomplice in the passage and renewal of the Patriot Act and voting for the war in Iraq under obvious false pretenses. Little does he realize that a bill called the 'Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007' was introduced to the House of Representatives by a caring Democrat, with the helpful assistance of the Rand Corporation, and passed with overwhelming Democratic support.
The 'Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007' is another Orwellian bill that appears to be written to protect America, but again, upon closer inspection actually restricts constitutional rights.
"Not since the "Patriot Act" of 2001 has any bill so threatened our constitutionally guaranteed rights," writes Ralph E. Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun.
Here is video of a FEMA employee saying that the founding fathers were terrorists and basically that regular Americans are terrorists.
LP happens to disagree, or perhaps like most Americans, just refuses to admit the end of a free society in light of everything that has been done right in our faces. In fact, LP tells me that you can't believe everything you read on the internet, that there will always be some groups of people that believe Elvis is still alive or that bigfoot exists, that Democrats are really there to help Americans and that Republicans are the enemy, and that as long as he is able to date hot chicks he will not worry about any of this nonsense.
So what will you do? Stick your head back in the sand, vote for Hillary Clinton and pray that this nightmare will end? Well let me tell you that the first thing to do is to be informed, and after that, just know that even the smallest thing you do to inform others and to help protect the Constitution of America is better than nothing at all.
Naomi Wolf, an author and Rhodes Scholar, describes the closing of a free society from an intellectuals point of view, based on a blueprint, using historical examples from dictatorships throughout history. It's a very personal, moving, and disturbing speech. Yes, she is a Bush basher and yes she is a liberal, and she still doesn't quite understand the concept of 'the passing of the baton' back and forth from the Bush's to the Clinton's or from the Democrats to the Republicans, but otherwise this is a must see. Take some time to watch is and please get others to watch it as well.
