I get it. People want to feel safe. But Seriously WFT America!?!
I cannot believe this is going on and nothing is being done. Has it gone so far that nothing can be done? Are Americans truly this weak now that when their freedom is taken away they just shrug it off. I can barely even understand how something that is this obviously a violation of privacy and our freedoms would even get presented as a logical solution in our capital, much less get passed and renewed over and over again.
Who are these people in congress that blatantly slaughter our freedom? This is not about Democrats vs Republicans, This is a battle of USA Government vs The People. OH Yeah, and the people had no idea a war had even started. When i say The People I don’t just mean American Citizens, I mean all people.
This violates the sovereignty of foreign nations and their citizens rights as well. I just can’t believe this is the world we live in now. A world where privacy and freedom were sacrificed for PROTECTION, yet no one feels safe and their own governments kill them with attacks from the sky (drone strikes).
I know how some will react to that. Its for our protection. The government has never bothered me or killed anyone I know with a drone. Ya well what if they did? What if tomorrow because of something you said in a private conversation with a friend or loved one on the phone the USA government deemed you a threat and you woke up to a drone bombing your house and killing your family. Sounds horrible right. Sounds like if you survived people would be on your side and you could take them to court.
Actually it would be completely legal. You gave the government that power. In fact more than half of the country would believe the news reports that call you a terrorist. Your neighbors would turn on you and you would either be killed or locked up in a secret prison for the rest of your life.
Pause for a second and RE-READ that above paragraph. Does that sound like the American dream? I am pretty sure we as a country have spoken out about this type of human rights violations when they happened in China, or Russia. NOW WE ARE NO BETTER. And we made it LEGAL.
What happened to “Liberty, and Justice For All”? Are we truly the offspring of the same men who proudly yelled “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death”? Has America fallen so far that words of wisdom from our founding fathers like “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”, fall on deaf ears. I am absolutely is shock.
Okay America, you are supposed to be the shining light of Freedom to the world. Your backs are against the wall. Now what do you do?
If it is anything like what i have seen recently we will bury this story in the news and in a few days no one will even be talking about it anymore. SHAME ON US.
