Welcome to the New (and Not Improved) America

Is this the kind of America we have to look forward to?

The right to a trial is not just a good idea - it's the natural God-given law!  Americans are foolish to allow it to be taken away from anyone for any reason.  And politicians who support it must be aware of where this leads.  And don't say that such things can never happen here.  They already do - and with the full support of the majority of Republicans and Democrats in the federal government.

I fear that our window of opportunity to reclaim our liberties is closing, but maybe, just maybe, American totalitarianism isn't inevitable.

Apparently, the "no corny bomb jokes" rule is not only for the airport. TSA is listening to all conversations on Twitter:

See how easy it is to be labeled an enemy of the State. Yes, the gulags in Stalinist Russia were once filled with many so-called terrorists.

You're right; our politicians know exactly what they are doing and why. One thing they aren't is stupid.

Dear James and Anastasia: Indeed, we live in perilous times. How far will the pendulum swing toward fascism before it starts back the other way?

If the German Foreign Minister has his way, that pendulum will swing all the way over and stay there.

This is about a 45 minut4e speech, so fairly long, but here is the future being planned for Europe, with broad hints that it is meant one day to include America, too. I consider this video essential viewing for any patriot.

Not ready to surrender your country's sovereignty? According to this guy, you are a dangerous person!

I don't think that link worked very well; let's try again, but you'll need to cut and paste:
