re: The White Paper leaked to Isakof to leaked it to NBC
The current administration is swimming in protections that could eventually cost Americans their lives. It appears that while we are being placated with a promise of stricter gun controls, the public is losing their rights to privacy and due process. The phrase "national security" is being overused and in my opinion, abused, at the expense of those who used to be able to count on those rights, including free speech, right to assemble and display non-violent civil disobedience. Will we have to "Storm the Bastille" before our rights are destroyed, much as what's going on in Egypt right now? Is the CIA going to become the U.S.'s own military hunta to be the next weapon against terror here in the U.S. with their drones? These are indeed frightening times. Yet, some 70-80% of Americans polled believe the U.S. is doing the right thing by targeting "suspected" terrorists with virtually no proof - just assumption - and I'm at a complete loss to understand this blind patriotism. Help me out here. Where are my fellow Americans who should be outraged by this instead of applauding it?
In my opinion, Confessions of an Economic Hitman should be required reading in all high schools so students can see for themselves what lies their parents were subjected to, and hopefully help lead the country away from this in the future. As RT-TV suggests, QUESTION MORE!
